The Phillips Dynasty

Andy Phillips wasn't in the starting lineup today. He did pinch-hit later on. He grounded out, but successfully moved the runner from 2B to 3B.

Meanwhile, in the Bronx, another Phillips came into the game as the White Sox catcher: Paul. He's Andy's cousin. I didn't know Andy had a cousin who was a pro ball player.

Paul Phillips is a catcher. There's a certain family resemblance:

(That's him in the middle.)

And speaking of the Phillips family...Andy's wife must be due any day now. (What Andy was thinking, getting his wife pregnant in December? Not only does that mean the baby is born in September - he’ll miss the kid’s birthdays as long as he’s in Major League Baseball - it means poor Bethany had to be 8-9 months preggers in August. In Alabama. Surely that counts as spousal abuse? ;-)
