BDD: It’s Always Classy in Philadelphia
I’ll shut up about it soon, but I can’t stress enough how much class the Phillies organization has shown over the years. It makes it that much more enjoyable to follow them as a fan.
It is because he has been such a good person and a good teammate and a good example that tonight, with a seven-run lead and one out left before the Phillies won their game against the Houston Astros and celebrated their division title, manager Charlie Manuel strolled to the pitcher’s mound to remove Scott Eyre from the game. The band Drowning Pool blared through the speakers once again, and Lidge emerged from the bullpen to a standing ovation from the Philadelphia crowd for the honor of once again notching the last out before a division title.
