Featured Card: 2009 Topps Updates & Highlights Gold Border #UH80, Matt Stairs
I have no idea what type of broadcaster he’s going to be, but I can’t help but recall that he provided he single greatest quote from a Phillie in a post-game interview: “When you get that nice celebration coming into the dugout, and you’re getting your ass hammered by guys, there’s no better feeling than to have that done.” A man who can speak that eloquently certainly has a great shot at becoming an awesome color commentator, and I look forward to hearing his commentary during Phillies broadcasts. Not that I needed the excuse, but I feel as though this justifies my putting my Stairs jersey to lots of good use this coming season. It must also be noted that his new gig makes it a lot easier for him to cash-in on those free beers for life.
And, welcome back to Jamie Moyer as well, who now gets to be an announcer for the team he grew up cheering for, in addition to winning a World Series with them.
