Gotta love this guy. He pitched well for us, and he loves him some Phillies:
"Every day I think about what I'm going to miss," he said. "I'm going to miss going to the clubhouse. Being with the Phillies, I'm going to miss seeing Chad Durbin sitting at his locker doing the crossword puzzle. I'm going to miss watching Brad [Lidge] read his biblical books in his locker after batting practice, eating the biggest sandwich I've ever seen anybody eat. I've talked to guys about it. I talked to [Jon] Lieber about it. Basically, you miss the camaraderie with the guys. And the Phillies' clubhouse is great. That's one of the reasons why Cliff [Lee] didn't want to leave. It's one of the best clubhouses you could be in. I don't care what anybody says about theirs. I've been in a few of them. This is one of the best. I never once said, 'I don't want to go to the field today.'"
Of course, he also had one of the best lines perhaps ever, regarding the Esteemed Commissioner of Baseball after a rainy night in October 2008:
Upon seeing Selig in the Phillies' clubhouse following the postponement of Game 5 due to rain, a Phillies pitcher looked at him and said: "That fucking guy. I wouldn't let him supervise one of my shits." Who said it? Our man is ... Scott Eyre.
Happy trails, gentle lefty.
