I totally thought Vance was hurt.
The totally awesome Chad Moriyama makes awesome .gifs of baseball games, and I asked him if he could do us some Worley tripping. He was all for it and hooked us up. Check it out:
Here's another angle:
Now, I can't give you all three for free when they are on Chad's site. So check out the third angle of Vance falling flat on his ass right here on Chad's site.
Also, make sure you follow Chad on Twitter because he's awesome.

The Phillies got their second half off to a bad start with last night's 6-2 loss, bringing them down back 14 games under .500. Cliff Lee took the loss as well, bringing him to 1-6 on the year despite allowing three runs (two earned) on nine hits against the Rockies. Tonight Vance Worley will get the start in an effort to split the series.

Vance Worley fills out the bottom of the rotation, making starts like yesterday’s for the Philadelphia Phillies. Are the young guns in San Francisco getting the job done? The Apocalyptic Horsemen Stats are in my recent coverage linked below.

Gotta admit, this would be a lot less amusing if he was a skinny dude
Vance Worley pitched into the seventh inning and hit a two-run double, Carlos Ruiz added a three-run homer, and the Philadelphia Phillies hung on to beat the Colorado Rockies 8-5 Saturday night to snap a five-game losing streak.
Worley (5-5) allowed two runs on eight hits in 6 2-3 innings. He struck out two and walked two, worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the fifth and benefited...
Tonight, the Phillies downed the Colorado Rockies 8-5. For the Phils, who had lost five straight, and 11-of-12, coming into the contest, it was a much-needed victory. It took all-around effort, as only the middle relief didn’t contribute to the win.

The Phillies were looking for a quality start from Vance Worley tonight to snap out of their five-game losing streak. Impatient at-bats last night led to a 6-2 loss, and a terrible way to kick off the second half of the season.
Thankfully, an outburst of offense gave the Phillies a 4-0 lead in the first inning. First, Chase Utley singled to left...
The Phillies had not won a series since June 20th, the last time they faced the Rockies. It is fitting then that almost a month later, their next series win also came against the Rockies.
On Saturday, Vance Worley led the team pitching 6.2 innings and allowing only 2 runs. The game was almost a rout as the Phillies led 6-2 going into the 8th inning. But the bullpen struck again,...
