From here over the weekend:

Carlos Ruiz — 2 for 19.
Grady Sizemore — 1 for 12.
Ben Revere — 3 for 18.
Jeff Francoeur — 3 for 17.
Darin Ruf — 2 for 15.
Chase Utley was 3 for 24. All his hits came in one game. He ended Sunday’s game with a pinch-hit ground out and is 0 for his last 18, hitting .116 overall.
So if it wasn’t the Browns who offered a first round pick, which team was it? It’s hard to say for sure. Perhaps Kelly was just stretching the truth, but maybe not. There was a report in February that some NFL teams at the top of the 2015 NFL Draft order prefer Bradford to Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota. Was it one of those teams? If so, it might seem hard to believe the Eagles would receive such a high pick offer and then turn it down.
The Philadelphia Evening Post, a magazine about Philly history, isn’t going to work. But it’s a great idea.
Both Mediaite and the NY Post (I’m sure among others) wrote that perhaps the world was too quick to judge Britt McHenry. Completely agree. She may be a complete biatch, but it’s so obvious that video was edited, and the tow company seems like one of the worst businesses on Earth. No way she wasn’t being egged on.
Yet another WIP’er – former CB contributor Adam Reigner, who’s close to Josh Innes – made what appears to be a thinly-veiled reference about the talent on a certain local morning show this morning:
I personally preferred this Tweet from Reigner, though:
Amid torrential rain this morning signaling the impending Great Flood that Tebow will save us all from, NBC 10 meteorologist Bill Henley, who has the Twitter presence of Siri in an echo chamber, informed us all that it was raining:
Jay Wright was the first guest on the 97.5 Morning Show, and therefore that is now my favorite show.
Steve Ballmer might be my favorite owner in sports. Unfortunately, he saddled the entire organization with Surfaces.
Nice headline work by Philly.com:
What is it they say– imitation is the best form of flattery? Typos and all. Thanks to the multiple readers who sent these in.
