Who needs Shane Victorino in center field when you have John Mayberry Jr. bashing two home runs a game? The Phillies outfielder, who was in Philly to get his thumb checked out by a specialist, was invited to come join the Mayor at City Hall on Thursday.
"It's a city of winners, so we like to win," Mayor Michael Nutter told Victorino of his campaign to be the final NL player voted onto the team.
"I don't want to take you away from your daily job," Victorino told the Mayor. "I want to make sure you keep the city running.
Always the courteous Hawaiian, Shane is.
All signs pointed towards Shane earning that final vote and being out in Arizona for the game. Whether he'll play or not remains to be seen.
