Dom Brown's ridiculousness continued on Monday night when his redhot bat torched the Miami Marlins en route to a 7-2 Phillies victory. Brown went 3-4 on the evening with 2 RBI and a run scored. It was his killing of a baseball in the sixth that got Phillies fans out of their seat, however. Not only did Brown put on a display of pure power with his sweet swing, he kept the show going with a pretty damn ridiculous hop out of the batters box and swag-filled bat flip.
I guess you can't get called for being out of the base path on a home run trot, eh?
This was even more badass than yesterday, I'd say?
Brown is now tied with Miguel Cabrera for second most home runs in all of baseball with 17.
Sam Hinkie's Philly area home is now up for sale for a whopping $3.1 million, according to Realtor.com.
This is the perfect opportunity for the Hinkie Apostles to purchase the mansion and make their very own Process Graceland. Surely, there has to be a Kickstarter for this already up and running, no?
Here's how the home is Bryn Mawr mansion is described in the listing:
Located on a private cul-de-sac overlooking 25 acres of the Harriton Farm Preservation and built in the 19th century, the home has five bedrooms and seven bathrooms spread over three levels of living space.
A stone wall serves as the home’s axis and accommodates three floor-to-ceiling fireplaces. According to the listing agent, the restoration of the property—which included top-of-the-line masonry, stone work, and mechanical, electrical, and plumbing upgrades—won the Lower Merion Preservation Award in 2005 .
And you absolutely know Hinkie is going to make out on the deal. He purchased the home in 2014 for a reported $2.66 million and is looking to make a cool half mil off the sale.
Everything seemed status-quo in ESPN’s Marc Stein’s most updated NBA power rankings. As expected the Warriors, Spurs, and Cavaliers occupied the top spots. But when you venture down to number 15, you may gasp.
Yes, the Sixers (15-27) are gracing the middle of the power rankings at number 15. Stein is starting to "trust the process" after the team’s recent 8-2 stint. It isn’t just Joel Embid making headlines with his record-breaking numbers and internet love life, but the team is now getting its due.
“Philly is doing plenty of interesting things,” Stein wrote. “Ersan Ilyasova and Robert Covington have combined to drain 51 threes over the past 10 games. The Sixers, as a team, have moved into the league's top 10 in defensive efficiency.”
Covington and Ilyasova are part of a new-look starting five along with Embiid, and guards T.J. McConnell and Nik Stauskas. McConnell and Stauskas had spent the majority of the season coming off the bench, but Stauskas has started the last 12 and McConnell 10 of the last 11 (McConnell was sidelined for one game with a wrist injury). The Sixers are 7-3 with that starting guard duo.
Despite the most recent loss to the Hawks, the Sixers have won four of their last eight victories by one possession. Giving them plenty of momentum to jump up ten spots from the last power ranking.
The Sixers will be at home to play the Clippers this Tuesday night at 7 p.m. They will be without Joel Embid who continues to rest his injured left knee.
