Jose Contreras to the DL

Jose Contreras to the DL

Because things were simply going too well for the Phillies as of late, the baseball gods felt the need to throw us a junk ball. The team announced today that Jose Contereas will be headed to the DL retroactive to June 20th. He's got a sore elbow, according to Charlie Manuel.

So who will replace him? Lehigh Valley IronPig Juan Perez of course. Okay, cool. But wait, who?

CSN's Jim Salisbury has more on Perez, "In 28 games this season, the 32-year-old Perez is 0-3 with a 3.52 ERA
and four saves. He has struck out 41 in 30 1/3 innings and held lefties
to a .184 average. In 24 career major league appearances, all with the
Pirates from 2006-07, Perez is 0-1 with a 5.17 ERA."

Bud Light made a special "Dilly, Dilly!" commercial for Philly


Bud Light made a special "Dilly, Dilly!" commercial for Philly

Oh, you thought we here in Philadelphia were special? You thought Bud Light liked Eagles fans more than they liked Vikings fans?


Bud Light likes fans who purchase their beer.

But yes, Bud Light did make a special little promo for Eagles fans playing off their "Dilly, Dilly!" campaign that for some strange reason many people seem to like. And get this, it uses "Philly, Philly!"

Because it rhymes.

You can watch that right here and the three other spots they made for the Viking, Patriots, and Jaguars below. The Patriots' one is probably the best.
