Who is that Bastardo anyway? This poor guy has probably the worst name as a pitcher that has come down the minors in a long time. Good thing we don't live in New York, I can see the headlines now, "That Bastard" or something mean like that. Well, Philly fans wouldn't be that mean or would they?
He'll get a start on Tuesday so says the Phillies when the Phils play the San Diego Padres on the West Coast roadtrip. I can't wait to hear Wheels, and Larry Anderson pronounce this name on the air, I know they'll get a kick out of it!
Let's hope this season doesn't go down the tubes from here as well. The Phillies will now have two minor leaguers in the starting 5 rotation. This isn't a good sign, unless of course these minor leaguers are really pitching lights out for the team. Every five days comes fast in baseball, and if the Phillies start a free fall in the standings quickly, it could be tough to gain that ground on the Mets. We'll see.......
