Win a Copy of Todd Zolecki's New Phillies Book, "The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly."

I've gotten ahold of three copies of Todd Zolecki's new book, "The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly: Heart-Pounding, Jaw-Dropping, and Gut-Wrenching Moments from Philadelphia Phillies History."  Damn it feels good to be a blogger.  I purchased my own copy prior to the contest, and it's a terrific read.  Zolecki, the MLB.com Phillies reporter, does a really good job of capturing the relatively few glorious times in the team's history (like now, for instance), and also takes a look at some of the worst (lots and lots).  Well done, Todd.

You want a copy?  Let's have a little contest.

In the comments below, tell me in 200 words or less your favorite obscure Phillie, and any amusing anecdotes surrounding him.  Example: my Wally Ritchie story here.

The three best entries get a free book. 

Go!
