Behold beauty my friends. They just don't make afros like that anymore. Bake McBride is a legend with an afro of those proportions. Aside from his hair styling, he did have a decent career with the Phils from 77-81, playing a mighty fine defensive outfield all the time and hitting at a decent clip too. You gotta wonder where the name "Bake" came from though. Possibly he and Rich Dubee have something in common besides being affiliated with the Phils.
While on the subject of defensive outfielders, I'm brought back to one of the obstacles that Pat Burrell must overcome to win the hearts of fans. His former college teammate and wingman, Jason Michaels, was traded last offseason for shit-slinger Art Rhodes...we all know how well that turned out. I think we need to get J-Mic back so Burrell's game returns to standard and maybe Michael's could lend him that big-ass mitt he has on this baseball card, it would surely increase Burrell's range.
Message from our Model Dictator- Fabio Castro: "Echaré en el bullpen 2007 de Philadelphia Phillies. ¡Todos usted sirve de madre a los humpers que dudan que puede aspirar mi chalupa!" He sounds determined, I like it.
I'm heading over to Corey's tonight for some brews and the game. Go Eagles!
