I’m Sending You Down, Ruf. Class AAA Ball.
…yes, another nod to The Natural. So, the great Darin Ruf left field experiment has ended for now. He hit a walk-off HR today and then was sent down. I still will pull for him, and so should you, as the Phillies really need a legit right-handed bat in the lineup to break up all those lefties. Hopefully he can get the left field down and destroy AAA pitching so he can be back in time to play the outfield by the time the Delmon Young experiment falls apart.
