*Those of you that love watching J-Roll getting on base at a pathetic .308 clip from the leadoff spot will be upset to know that he's listed as day-to-day with a right patella contusion (aka- bruised knee). Jimmy fouled a ball off his right knee to open last night's game and later left the contest.
*Those of you that are tired of watching Dane Sardinha once every 5 days will not like the following news- Brian Schneider suffered a setback in his rehab and basically had to start the entire process over again. More tattoos, more tattoos!
*Those of you that are not missing Brad Lidge will be happy to know that he too is experiencing problems in his rehab. Lidge has tightness in his shoulder and is unable to throw currently. Ah, shucks. This looks like a wasted $12M.
*Those of you that were pissed off about John Mayberry's demotion must be elated to know he's back after only 1 day away. He was summoned back to the Phillies because Ross Gload is on paternity leave. Gload gets 72 hours to be with his wife and new child. Mayberry's stay will be short, Gload still can't run.
*Those of you that can't get enough of watching David Herndon toss batting practice to the opposition are probably pitching tent this morning at the news of his recall and Mike Zagurski's demotion. Herndon inspires me. He's proof that you can suck at your job and still remain employed.
*Those of you that can't let go of their inner-child and still delve into comics will love the Phillies inspired Dugout Phunnies.
*Those of you that hate having Michael Martinez on this team are cheering at his latest attempt at the plate which went for naught, dropping his average to .180 and OPS to .408. Good thing we didn't expose him to waivers or offer him back to the Nationals, with numbers like that he'd surely be snatched up faster than a cupcake at an over-eater's anonymous meeting.
Screw Michael Martinez!
