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.
Before October baseball starts and our coverage becomes all business, let’s end the regular season on a more light-hearted note, and examine the very real possibility that some of America’s most (in)famous names have found their way in professional baseball, most notably, with the Phillies and Nationals.
Sure, it’s pretty hard to think of two more opposing personalities: Ibanez of the Phillies and Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino of the Jersey Shore. But what better of a scam to pull off? Nobody would see it coming. Except us.
We should all be ashamed if it turns out Will Ferrell has been doubling as a Nationals first baseman Adam Dunn all this time. We should be equally ashamed if the opposite proves true. Well it’d be tough to say their respective demeanors match up, look at that
Which other celebrities do you think are posing as professional athletes?
