The Phillies are the Terminator

35 Comments

Zoo With Roy is a pretty righteous Phillies blog. Today ZWR features a video mashup done by Petzrawr of the equally-righteous (yet sadly defunct) TheFightins.com. In it, the Phillies are portrayed as the Terminator.

It’s a great analogy, really. Because just like the Terminator, the Phillies kick ass for a long time and then end up losing at the end. Perfect, really.  Just substitute Ryan Howard’s last at bat against the Giants for Arnold getting mashed up in that hydraulic press and it’s gold.

(seriously, though, nice video. I wish Braves fans cared enough to do that kind of stuff, but sadly, we don’t)

Report: Momentum in talks between Mariners, Jon Jay

MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reports that there is some momentum in talks between the Mariners and free agent outfielder Jon Jay.

Jay, 32, hit .296/.374/.375 in 433 plate appearances with the Cubs last season, which is adequate. He’s heralded more for his defense and his ability to play all three outfield spots.

The Mariners are losing center fielder Jarrod Dyson to free agency and likely don’t want to rely on Guillermo Heredia next season, hence the interest in Jay. The free agent class for center fielders is otherwise relatively weak.
