Yesterday, on the last game of the regular reason, the Phillies got routed. Their opponent celebrated their division title in front of them. And one of their most promising prospects–i.e., the future of this aged and hobbled team–got hit in the face with a ball. Again, folks, that’s third baseman Cody Asche, getting hit in the face by a ball thrown to him by his own teammate, Dom Brown. He needed seven stitches and a stiff drink.
