The Enemy Speaks: Phillies Series

Welcome to this Phillies Series edition of The Enemy Speaks (formerly known as From the Opponents' Feed). Here are the interesting tidbits gleaned from NOT listening to the Brennemen, but rather to the opposing team's announcers, who often have different, interesting, or mock-able insights, observations, and stories that the Brennemen don't work hard enough to harvest. Because they inspire ire and ought to retire.

Sometimes being a Phillies fan hurts. This weekend was one of those times, but honestly not that shocking.

Shortest?: Can you name these strapping young chaps that all suited up for the Redlegs?

That's right, these meddling kids are the Boone boys, Ray, Bob, Aaron, and Bret. We were very lucky to have on the ESPN broadcast not only Aaron, who says that RF in Great American Ball Park is the shortest in the majors, but RR favorite Barry Larkin.

Both Aaron and Barry have excellent voices to fall asleep to.

Overheard: "Aroldis is getting paid to start. This isn't his role."

BP's new nickname: Thunderbolt, which the Phillies gave him. Looks flashy, but sleek and very good.

Three Outs and a Little Maybe: Laynce Nix pulled out his dance mix with a great catch, but then threw the ball into the infield..but there were already 3 out. See you in Kangaroo Court for spoiling the play of the day with the derp of the day. FACED!

Flashy Phils Funkmaster of Fielding, Ben Revere, is from Lexington Catholic and was named Mr. Baseball in KY.

Here he is just 2 years ago
