Some Phillies Links For You, May 3, 2010: Zzzzzzap! Tasered!, Bullpen Bluez, Bye Rat...

From brotherly love to 'Don't taze me, bro' for Phillies fan
I want to personally thank this guy for making me have to defend his actions for the rest of my life when out-of-towners invoke all the usual suspects in the world of Philadelphia fan savagery. - New Video: Fan Tasered for Running Onto Field at Citizens Bank Park

I think Joe Savery is just about done as a serious prospect.

NL Quick Pitch: Move over, a star is born with Ubaldo Jimenez
The guy has just been ridiculous so far. Getting ahead of myself, but winning a Cy Young Award while pitching in Colorado would be an amazing achievement. That said, Go Doc!
