2006 Chachi #25 Tom Gordon

Welcome back Flash. Tom Gordon was activated by the Arizona Diamondbacks a few days ago, and pitched a scoreless inning for them on Tuesday night. It was his first big league appearance since July 5, 2008, when he blew a save opportunity against the Mets. The Mets would go on to beat the Phils 9-4 in that game. (In retrospect, no big deal).

Flash spent significant time on the DL during his tenure with the Phillies (2006-2008). His best year by far was his first year, when he saved 34 games, made the NL All-Star team, and held opposing hitters to a .233 average.
