Then there's that kid who was last year's runner up for Rookie of the Year. Freddie Freeman is developing into a beast. Be scared NL opponents. Be very scared.

Opening Day Customs
I can't remember a crazier game than the one the Phils and Braves played Wednesday, May 2. Down 6-0 to Roy Halliday, Atlanta Chipped away at the Phillies lead by tying the score with a six-run 5th inning. The lead continued to change back and forth, with Atlanta taking a one-run lead into the ninth. Game over once Kimbrel comes in, right? Not tonight. Philadelphia scored the tying run off Kimbrel, taking the game into overtime. With the scored still tied and one on in the bottom of the 11th, Chipper blasted a ball that had plenty of distance, but was just foul. Two pitches later- walkoff! The photo on this celebration card captured the excitement of his teammates.
