Oh Philadelphia freedom shine on me, I love you. Shine a light, won’t you shine a light? Philadelphia freedom I love you, yes I do. -Elton John
Public Service Announcement: Ok, here we go! Well looky looky what we got here. Look at Raul Ibanez. Look at the bad guy. Make way for the bad guy. There’s a bad guy comin’ through! Better get outta his way! Better get out of Raul Ibanez’ way. Last seen, Raul Ibanez finished off the second half of the 2008 season with twelve bombs. Last seen, Raul Ibanez finished off the second half of the 2008 season with fifty-five RBIs and a .321 batting average. Well sports fans, he’s picking up right where he left off.
Fresh off of hitting his 200th career tater, last night, Raul Ibanez had five RBIs in Philadelphia’s win at San Diego. Big deal? So what? I’ll tell you so what. I’ll tell you that gives Ibanez fifty-one RBIs in the Fightin’ Phils fifty games this season. I’ll tell you that’s the most RBIs for a player in the Phillies’ first fifty games of a season since 1932. Since the imitable Don Hurst also had fifty-one. I’ll tell you Raul Ibanez is one bad man.
Peace out homies. Six two and Even!
