But You Say He's Justin Friend

I'm a baseball junkie. I read the MLB box scores every day and even the Phillies minor league ones too. This year the name of Justin Friend pops up seemingly every time the Clearwater Phillies win a game. He's appeared in 11 game and has 10 saves. He was drafted in this past offseason's minor league phase of the Rule 5 draft out of the Oakland system. The right-handed 24 year old hasn't been anything special until now, but his performance thus far has me singing this song parody...

You, you got what I need,
But you say he's Justin Friend,
And you say he's Justin Friend,
Oh baby, you, you got what I need,
But you say he's Justin Friend,
But you say he's Justin Friend,
Oh baby, you, you got what I need,
But you say he's Justin Friend,
But you say he's Justin Friend.

WSBGMs Brew:
Phantastic Philnser is the official name of the first homebrew in honor of this great blog. Obviously it's a pilsner, but for an interesting twist it had hops and Indian sarsaparilla added to it. It should be a lovely summertime beer with a low alcohol content (about 4.5%). Release is tentatively scheduled for 4th of July weekend. If you're wondering how to get a taste of it, a WSBGMs tailgate may be planned for a game at Lehigh Valley or Reading in mid July.

That 0.61 ERA isn't hurting Friend either.

I hope the Phils rocket a few Jurrjens pitches deep into the night.

you know what really grinds my gears?
Every time a writer uses the "Braves New World" headline in their article like its so witty and they are the only person that has ever used that headline.

Series loss against better competition. Imagine that.
