There were some heavy storms that were passing through South Philadelphia on Tuesday evening prior to the Phillies tilt with the Padres and Citizens Bank Park was hammered with a TON of water in a very short period of time. The field was flooded, the visitors clubhouse had a waterfall of sorts cascading down it, but most importantly, two of the visiting San Diego players used the opportunity to treat the tarp covering the infield like a giant slip-n-slide.

Watching the above video is certainly more enjoyable than watching the Phillies play as of late. Kids having fun out there.
According to Phillies scribe John Finger, the Padres were chased off by the boring grounds crew. Wonder if they actually said "GET OFF MY LAWN (slash field covered by a piece of strong plastic)!"? So unfun.
As you can see, it's a little wet out there but the team says it should pass and the game should start as scheduled around 7:05 this evening.
The Eagles have signed former Dolphins offensive guard Dallas Thomas to a reserve/futures contract.
Thomas, 27, was drafted by the Dolphins in the third round (No. 77) out of Tennessee in 2013 and was with them until this past season.
In his four-year career, Thomas has played in 37 games with 26 starts. He started nine games in 2014 and started all 16 games at left guard in 2015.
Thomas (6-5, 315 pound) and 2014 third-rounder Billy Turner were both released in October after a poor showing agains the Titans. While Thomas was the team's starter at left guard in 2015, rookie Laremy Tunsil took over that position with the Dolphins in 2016.
In 2015, when Thomas started all 16 games at left guard, he was ranked as the worst guard in football by ProFootballFocus. He gave up 10 sacks, 10 QB hits and 36 QB hurries.
Mike Trout sure does win a lot when the Eagless beat the Cowboys.
Not only did the Los Angeles Angels outfielder get a touchdown ball from Carson Wentz during the Eagles win over the Cowboys to cap off the season, but he also won a bet on the game with a friend.
Turns out, Trout had some sort of bet with DJ Cottrell, whose Twitter profile says he is from Trout's hometown of Millville, NJ. Cottrell is likely a Cowboys fan and came up on the losing end.
"The fact I have to wear an entire Eagles uniform to the gym for a week is going to be the death of me," he Tweeted on Tuesday.
Then he posted a photo of himself in the ridiculous football uniform while posing alongside Trout.
It's good to be Mike Trout. Not so much a Dallas Cowboys fan these days.
