Phantastic Phillies Prospect To Play... in Philadelphia!

| | Comments (4)

Wholphin! Let the Domonic Brown Era begin! The Phillies just placed Shane Victorino on the disabled list and called up their top prospect from AAA Lehigh Valley.

Victorino strained his abdominal while making a catch last night and is the fifth Phillies position starter to head to the disabled list this year. (The others: Chase Utley, Jimmy Rollins, Placido Polanco and Carlos Ruiz.) Dom Brown hit .327/.391/.589 for AA Reading and the IronPigs this year. If you prefer stupid stats, he had the game-winning RBI in the Futures Game this year.

It's expected Jayson Werth will move to center field and Brown will immediately be inserted in right. Brown will ear No. 9, according to something I read on Twitter. (It must be right!) If his at-bat music is not Das Racist's "Who's That? Broooooooown," someone is really dropping the ball.

Jayson and Domonic in the OF. Does anyone one have a properly spelled first name out there?

/needs "misspelled" first names tag

Can I properly type a comment? No.

Hmmm, Dom Brown gets called up on the same day the Fightins' server goes nutso.

Someone check on Meech to see if he's whipping around on a three-wheeled coffin.

"he had the game-winning RBI in the Futures Game this year."

On an infield hit. In the first inning.
