Raul Failbanez (Alternate Title: .gifs!)

Yesterday was a good day for the Phillies. They swept both games of a day-night doubleheader against the Florida Marlins, which included a dramatic comeback in the ninth inning of the nightcap. To break up the run of super-serious analytic posts recently, enjoy some lol-worthy .gifs from Raul Ibanez and Ryan Howard.

Warning: lots of .gifs after the jump. If you’re on a slow computer, it may explode.

    Anyone keep track of UZR by the game? Is it possible we witnessed Banzai set a historical low last night?

    Leave the gifs to TheFightins web site. You can’t compete.

    I think this needs some Benny Hill music or something to jazz it up.

    Yeah, Shane went a little crazy after the hit last night. Think that might be the funniest gif of anything from yesterday.
