As The 700 Level points out, the best part of this video might be the glimpse we get of Carlos Ruiz wearing a "Fake Tough" T-shirt, which references the Cole Hamels diatribe Nationals GM Mike Rizzo made last year after Hamels admitted he hit Bryce Harper on purpose. Ah, you know what it all means: Baseball is back!
And this video is great to chillax with, too. Listen to the steel drum rhythms reminiscent of Jimmy Buffett; Watch infielders Chase Utley and Jimmy Rollins taking grounders in shorts; Brace yourself from Roy Halladay breaking faces doing a bullpen; Admire closer Jonathan Papelbon weening himself off anti-inflammatories.
Phillies pitchers and catchers aren't required to report to Clearwater, Fla. until Wednesday. But with the weather so nice and the music just right, why not get a little bit of a head start?
