Gearing up to opening day, I thought I'd start a new knitty D feature: Phillie of the Week. Now, I don't LOVE all members of the Philadelphia Phillies, and love of Christina is NOT a pre-req to being Phillie of the Week. No, I just want all of you out there in NON PHILLIE land to know and love the team that I love to hate and hate to love---all they do is break my heart.
So, this week's Phillie is:
RYAN HOWARD, 1st Base
He's big and beefy and he hits a lot of home runs.
Sure, he can't field THAT well...his size precludes him from those diving plays down the line. But the hitting makes up for that.
Next up: A phillie I hate...can you guess who?
