    I lived in Philly until last year and saw a lot of Pat “The Bat”. He used to swing at everything and at one point (before Howard and Utley emerged) he was the face of the franchise. I met the guy twice as well. Typical type-A personality sport player, but he’s never shown signs of bat-shit craziness that we have w/ the monopoly guy, so I’d love to see this trade. Not to mention, his numbers dropped because he went to the best division in baseball (AL East). Pat’s calmed down a lot behind the plate. Put him in Wrigley and I’d look for .270ish, 30 or so HR’s, 80+ RBI.
