As the Phillies clinched their fourth straight divisional title in Washington Monday night, they now have the opportunity to rest their star-studded offense and staff of aces starting rotation: Roy Halladay, Roy Oswalt and Cole Hamels.
But from where we were sitting, it looked like a few familiar faces were posing (convincingly) as Major Leaguers amidst the irrelevance of the remaining games for two franchises whose fates are already sealed.

Clever work covering up the tattoos, Fred! But don’t think you’re going to fool us. It’s all too convenient "Blanton’s" professional pitching career started in 2004, one short year after Limp Bizkit’s last full studio release hit the stands. You ever wonder why Fred Durst always wore a baseball cap? Here’s your answer: he has to.
