See Ya, Sal

The Phillies yesterday released catcher Sal Fasano, who became a huge fan favorite in Philly this year due to his Italian heritage, funny mustache, and legendary beer-drinking ability.

I know this is going to be spun as yet another case of the Phillies ignoring what their fans really want and getting rid of a fan favorite, but really Sal wasn't all that good a player, and Chris Coste is playing his old role with much more success. Not to mention, the Eagles have begun training camp, so most people in Philly stopped paying attention to baseball weeks ago.
