Mr. Morton, the fourth highest-paid player on the Phillies’ roster and subject of the only recurring feature so far on my blog, will have season-ending surgery tomorrow and collect $8 million for a handful of starts.
Since then, they’ve swept the Nationals AT NATIONAL PARK (hahahahahaha) by either shutting them out or destroying Papelbon or both. I can’t decide which option I like best, it’s all fabulous. This afternoon, they’ve just completed a sweep of the Indians.
Now to think about a new Phillies feature.
