I wanted to take a quick break from the grind of sitting on the beach to bid a fond farewell to my son Doug's favorite player. Shane Victorino has been Doug's favorite since the day five years ago when the Flyin' Hawaiian "stole" him during a Phillies photo day and threatened to take him home. This photo is blown up and hanging in the real Phillies Room.
Thank you Shane. Thank you for 2008 and thank you for your 6+ years of hustle and Gold Glove defense. All the best in Dodgertown.
