This gives all-new meaning to the Angry Bottalico.
Yesterday on Daily News Live, CSN announced that Gregg(ggggg) Murphy would join the Phillies as a field reporter. Sarge, who previously held that role, sort of, will stick to what he’s best at– sometimes when the pitch is a fastball, coming at a high velocity, the batter may want to swing more quickly, as well.

He has since removed the Tweets.
Bottalico, who most of us enjoy, is still scheduled for his normal role on Phillies Postgame Live, according to CSN press releases as recent as yesterday. But, it seems, he wants more.
