Sign of the Times: Hunter Pence Drafts Lesean McCoy, Looks for Him on Twitter

Sunday was a strange day. With the Phillies off and the remnants of the hurricane passed through the Delaware Valley by the early afternoon, we weren't quite sure what to do with ourselves.

With the Phillies getting to Cincy a couple of days early, a number of them used the extra free time to prep for and draft their fantasy football teams.

In a sign of just how meta the Internet is getting, Phillies fan-favorite Hunter Pence announced to the world that he selected Eagles fan-favorite Shady McCoy with the sixth overall pick in his draft. Shady's going to be a very good fantasy back, worthy of a first round pick. But at sixth overall, it could be argued that Pence had a little hometown reach. Hopefully for Hunter's sake it's a PPR league.

Oh, and Jimmy Rollins was locked into the MTV Video Awards last night. Big Adele fan.
