MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at Atlanta Braves Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome back to morning links, folks! I flew to PA to surprise my mother for her birthday and decided to take a short vacation. And then the Newark airport screwed me on my trip back (a four hour air traffic delay, kill me), so I decided to extend my blog vacation another day. But now I’m back, and just in time!

The Phillies won again?

Um, the Phillies have won three games in a row, and I was positive that wasn’t allowed anymore. I thought a law had been passed or a decree had been issued or something. But no! The Phillies won last night, and you should read Victor Filoromo’s recap of last night’s triumphant 11-4 victory. But how about a few celebratory/informative tweets?

Am I the only one who hears angels singing right now? Just me? Okay.

LONG LIVE ODUBEL HERRERA

If you are someone who had foolishly given up on Odubel Herrera, go sit in the corner for five minutes and then please rejoin us, because THE MAN IS ON FIRE.

And here’s one just to make you swoon.

I love you, Odubel Herrera.

Zach Eflin and Roman Quinn to see team doctor

Sorry for the unpleasant change of topic, but it can’t all be sunshine and lollipops. Jim Salisbury reported that Eflin and Quinn are both getting their elbows checked out. Eflin felt some soreness while he was pitching in his first Triple-A start of the season last week, which doesn’t seem like good news. Quinn injured his elbow while sliding. Hopefully there’s good news to report after they’re checked out, but I’m not holding my breath.

Buy some awesome t-shirts!

GUYS. John Stolnis, AKA the king of the Felske Files podcast, has partnered with TeePublic to bring us some t-shirts. AND THEY ARE AWESOME. There are four designs, but I’m going to feature my two favorite.

TRUST. THE. PROSPECTS. OH HELL YES. I’m going to buy this t-shirt so hard.

I really love the podcast logo, it’s absolutely gorgeous. I actually want that one in poster or canvas format.

So where can we, the Felske Files loving public, buy these t-shirts? At the Felske Files store on TeePublic! And there’s a sale right now!

Tweet of the day

Michael Franco. I know Pedro doesn’t watch the Phillies often, so I can let that slide. I love you, Pedro Martinez.
