Galvis pulls out of World Baseball Classic with injury

Phillies shortstop Freddy Galvis will not play for Team Venezuela in the World Baseball Classic. Why? He’s hurt. Galvis has a tight groin.

Which is smart. It’s a shame he’s not playing...

To those of you who reject the objectification of the flesh, well, today just isn't your day. Avert your gaze from the glorious, glorious Freddy Galvis. And my glorious, glorious prose.

His 2013 season further justified the Phillies’ beliefs. There’s no doubt that Galvis is a gifted defender. He has a natural ability to handle the glove and watching him play defense is truly a pleasure. But as we...
