Now that the Phillies have signed their number one overall draft pick, it’s time to introduce him to the world! The Phillies are showing off the newly drafted/newly signed Mickey Moniak today, and you can watch the 2pm press conference right here.
If you’re wondering whether or not you should watch this press conference, you should. Here are my reasons:
- Moniak seems like an earnest, likable kid.
- Moniak is the fruit of a 99-loss season. He is what we get for watching the 2015 Phillies, and as someone who witnessed so very, very, very many of those losses, I’m not going to miss a chance to see what we got for winning the 2015 MLB All-Team Crap Fest.
- This press conference is not about the 2016 Phillies. It’s not about them losing, and to my knowledge they won’t show any footage of them losing, or even playing a game. They won’t lose a game during the press conference, either. (Probably.) I’m going to take advantage of that.
The festivities will start at 2pm. Welcome to the Phillies, Mickey! And also, we’re sorry. So, so sorry.
