Phillies Duck It Up

David Murphy notes an unusual new mascot for the Phils during the World Series:

During the Phillies’ 2-hour workout at Tropicana Field yesterday, an unknown member of the club placed a rubber duck in the locker of each player. These weren’t your normal Bert-and-Ernie rubber ducks. Each one was uniquely colored, patterned with various designs. Designer rubber ducks. Jimmy Rollins’ duck sported what appeared to be a fake diamond.

The gist is Charlie Manuel mentioned something about playing tighter than a duck’s rear end. So, as a reminder to play loose, somebody gave everyone a personalized rubber duck.

Murphy closes out with this great catch phrase:

“See the duck. Be the duck.”

Hey Tampa Bay: Duck you.
