Always knew Charlie Manuel was a good dude.

In a few weeks, he’ll be sleeping outside on a Philly street along with Larry Bowa and Phillies executives to raise money for the Covenant House “Sleep Out” program, which supports homeless youth.

Here’s the blurb on the fundraiser page:

Rhys Hoskins Dressed as Princess Toadstool for His Bachelor Party

Kevin Kinkead - November 5, 2019

Let’s see what the Phillies are doing. Hopefully they’re working hard on their hitting, base running, pitching, and hustling ahead of next season. They need to come into spring training focused under Joe Girardi, who will hold them accountable for once.

(sarcasm)

Looks like Rhys Hoskins is dressed up as Princess Toadstool here for his bachelor party. There are 12 dudes and 11 of them are costumed as Mario or Luigi:

The Washington Nationals won the World Series. Yay.

Alex Bregman Has Nothing to Apologize For

Kevin Kinkead - October 30, 2019

Ah yes, the “unwritten rules” of baseball.

If you dare disrespect the game, the other team will get mad. Maybe they will bean one of your teammates in the next inning. Maybe the benches will clear and blah blah blah, etc.

Last Alex Bregman hit a bomb off Stephen Strasburg, then carried his bat to first base:

Kevin Kinkead - October 29, 2019

Here’s a text message conversation I’d like to be in on.

It’s Charlie Manuel and Jim Thome talking about facing Houston Astros right hander Gerrit Cole, who has been lighting it up this postseason and would look really nice in a Phillies uniform next year:
