That Domonic Brown Fellow

Posted By Bill Baer On September 19, 2011 @ 2:53 pm In MLB,Philadelphia Phillies | 46 Comments

A few days ago, I discussed the post-season roster, lamenting that Domonic Brown likely wouldn’t be included. On Twitter, @9John_Adams9 linked me to this video on YouTube featuring one of Brown’s memorable at-bats from spring training 2010. Brown faced Justin Verlander, working the count very well and eventually tagging a fastball for a very long home run to right-center. Seems like that skill set might be kind of useful in the post-season, no?

What’s more is that the at-bat captured above is not your run-of-the-mill, “who cares?” spring training at-bat. Verlander threw Brown everything he had in his arsenal and Brown handled him admirably. Do you trust John Bowker or Ben Francisco to do the same?
