This morning, I checked for the final score of the first game of the Phillies-Marlins series. The crack research team at Yahoo Sports got the score right, but wasn’t sure which team won and which team Nathan Eovaldi pitches for.

We didn’t know that today was the Phillies end-of-season prom. We were so under-dressed.
Now, that’s dedication!
When catcher Travis d’Arnaud played in the Toronto Blue Jays farm system, he had no problem with an uppercase “D” on the back of his jersey as the first letter in his last name. Now that he made it to the Majors (if you can call the Mets “the Majors”), it seems he’s a little more picky. After getting the call up last week, he insisted that the “D” be lowercase on the back of his Mets jersey. Well, no team has lowercase letters on the back of their jerseys. So, the equipment department had to get creative. They used an inverted uppercase “P” to appease Mr…. uh…. Mr. ….. whatever the fuck his name is.
Ugh. The Mets.
