Dom Brown Sent to Triple-A Lehigh Valley

Dom Brown Sent to Triple-A Lehigh Valley

Phillies fans on Friday were hoping, in the case of some even praying, that Dom Brown would be on the team after Ruben Amaro made his big deadline deal to land a right-handed bat. Well, as of today, Dom Brown is not currently on the Phillies 25-man roster.

But he still remains in the organization. Brown has been optioned to Triple-A Lehigh Valley to make room for Hunter Pence. Brown will be in the IronPigs lineup tonight and play left field, according to beat writer Matt Gelb. It's a move that's tough to argue with. (Unless you argue Ben Francisco shouldn't be on the Phillies at all) Brown will get a bit more "seasoning" against minor league pitching while getting a chance to play everyday.

Expect to see him back with the big club once rosters expand in September.

Jimmy Fallon gives out superlatives to Eagles and Cowboys players

Jimmy Fallon, the host of the Tonight Show, handed out his superlatives to Eagles and Cowboys players. 

Linebacker Jordan Hicks was named “the most likely to be one of the Rugrats all grown up,” and safety Rodney McLeod was named “most likely to have been told he’d get a lollipop after the photo was taken.”

Unfortunately, there was not a superlative given to Tony Romo for being named mostly likely to be crying on the ground after getting sacked. 

The Eagles and Cowboys will face off on Sunday Night Football, when we will see the first battle between rookie quarterbacks Carson Wentz and Dak Prescott.

Phillies fans woke up Rays' players during 2008 World Series

Phillies fans woke up Rays' players during 2008 World Series

The lore of Philly sports fans continue to grow. 

And this time, nothing was thrown.

Current Cubs and former Rays manager Joe Maddon said that during the 2008 World Series, Phillies fans found the hotel his team was staying at, and honked car horns throughout the night, keeping the team up.

"The Philly fans, they knew we were there somehow," Maddon told reporters Wednesday. "Five o’clock in the morning they’re driving around the hotel blowing the horn, trying to wake everybody up at 5:00 in the morning, 6:00 in the morning…."

Maddon says the team had already checked out of their original hotel before Game 5, but because the game was suspended, the Rays had to book another hotel in the area.

Through some impressive detective work, fans found the team's hotel and did their best to wake up the Rays throughout the early morning.

Did it work?

It must have, because the Rays allowed a leadoff double to Geoff Jenkins (remember that guy?) to resume the game.

You have to be pretty exhausted to allow a hit to that guy.
