Found December 21, 2013 on Hall of Very Good:
Dear Santa... I know we're just a few days away from your big day, but if I could get just one thing for would be the 3:32 back that I spent watching the "What's The Phanatic Say?" video. What's that you ask?  Well, as it turns out, it's the Philadelphia Phillies hackneyed attempt at creating a spoof(?) video of the viral smash "The Fox" by Ylvis.  You know the one..."cow goes moo, fish goes glub".  The difference being that this one features the Phillie Phanatic and a host of other mascots from in and around The City of Brotherly Love. The problem is...I hate it.  But, for some reason, this video is getting praise...and I can't figure out why.  If you ask me, I miss the simpler days of, say, "Get Metsmerized!" or, dare I say "Marlins Will Soar". So, yeah, do what you can.  3:32 isn't that much time, right? Thanks, man.  See you on the flip florp.

Phillies hopeful Howard can bounce back: 'He still exists'

The Philadelphia Phillies’ offseason has been defined by trade rumors involving their most prominent players, as the Nats’ NL East rivals have sent mixed signals on their plans for the future. Are they trading away their assets or holding the current roster together for another year? It’s no secret they have tons of money locked up in older players, they’re set to pay over...

Manuel Expected to Return in Advisory Role

In a nugget buried in a Lou Marson update, the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Matt Gelb reports that former manager Charlie Manuel is excepted to return to the Phillies in a front office role “that would involve some minor-league hitting instruction, scouting and public relations”. According to Gelb, general manager Ruben Amaro says the details are still being finalized. Manuel...

WATCH: Phillies ask 'What's the Phanatic say?'

I'm sure everyone is familiar with "What's the Fox Say" by now. That's spawned legions of parodies, including this incredibly creepy one put together by the Philadelphia Phillies. In addition to the Phanatic, the video also features various local Philly mascots, including those from the team's farm system and Philly's college teams. If you want to...

Charlie Manuel likely to take job in Phillies front office

The Philadelphia Phillies’ brass said back in October that they had offered fired manager Charlie Manuel a job to stay within the organization. Not many in Philadelphia thought that the remarks were any more real than general manager Rubén Amaro, Jr.’s tears at the press conference, when the team fired Manuel, but it looks like there are still honest people left in the game...

Report: Phillies and Orioles have discussed Jonathan Papelbon

The quickly souring four-year $50 million deal the Phillies gave Jonathan Papelbon two years ago, and the Orioles’ recent fiasco with Grant Balfour may make the two teams unexpected trade partners. MASN’s Roch Kubatko is reporting that the Phillies and Orioles have discussed a trade involving closer Jonathan Papelbon. Kubatko adds that the Phillies would have to eat “a lot”...

Phillies Keep Sebastian Valle On Minor League Deal

The Phillies needed a roster spot when they signed pitcher Roberto Hernandez to a one-year contract.

However, despite the Phillies cutting him from their 40-man roster, Valle agreed to return to the Phillies on...
