The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly
WSBGMs were fortunate enough to get our grimy mitts on MLB.com's Phillies writer Todd Zolecki's new book The Good, The Bad, & The Ugly. We're pleased to report it's longer than 3 pages (we worried that it would be 1 page for each category: The Good- Chase Utely, The Bad- David Bell, The Ugly- Ed Wade). In fact, it clocks in at 218 fun-filled pages for the literate. For the illiterate, there's pictures, so don't stress your stupid little brains. It's a collection of "heart-pounding, jaw-dropping, and gut-wrenching moments from Philadelphia Phillies history".
The book includes Zolecki's "Dream Team" of pitchers and players, an account of major moves made over the years, a section devoted solely to our beloved non-English speaking manager Charlie Manuel, and much more. The forward is written by Larry Andersen radio partner Scott Franzke. Pick up a copy at any fine bookstore, online, or beg Todd for a copy.
