The Good Phight, SBNation's Philadelphia Phillies blog, has hired superagent Scott Boras to represent them in all upcoming negotiations.
Boras announced that he will be seeking "Deadspin money" for the site, which launched in June 2005.
"There are many Phillies blogs out there, but none as historically significant as this one," Boras stated at a Sunday press conference. Gesturing to a full two inch three ring binder, he further stated that The Good Phight is the "only Phillies blog that featured a front page author making a one handed catch of a foul ball while holding ice cream on live television, a story comparing Phillies personalities to characters from The Simpsons, and minor league prospect evaluations done in the form of modernist poetry."
Representatives of SBNation refused to comment on record, but stated that any decisions to be made regarding retaining the services of The Good Phight will be made with the good of the network in mind. "We understand that The Good Phight has been around for awhile, and this might be their last chance for a big payday," said one executive under the condition of anonymity. "But at the same time, we have 29 other teams to consider on the baseball side alone, as well as our other 280 plus sites. It's all about putting the best network out there that we can. If The Good Phight wants to be part of that going forward, we'll be glad to have them.
Reached at his father's home for comment, blog lord Whole Camels created a media circus by inviting members of the press to his father's attic to watch Apocalypse Now as he shuffled his iPod playlists comprised mainly of the music of Steely Dan, Warren Zevon, Captain Beefheart and Frank Zappa.
Other members of The Good Phight could not be reached for comment, but representatives of the blog were heard to comment, "F*** the Braves" at various times on Sunday and Monday.
