'Frillies?' Victorino having none of that

victorino-tabloid.jpgShane Victorino seems the happy-go-lucky sort, the kind of guy who loves to play baseball and lets it show on and off the field.

But when it comes to New York tabloid journalism, he seems to find it more difficult to maintain a sense of humor. And I can’t say that I blame him.

As you can see by the photo on the right, Victorino didn’t want to have much to do with a New York Post photographer who approached him with copies of the newspaper, which featured a doctored (we’re assuming) photo of him in a cheerleader’s outfit.

The headline on the story? “Gotham Trembles: The Frillies are coming to town!”

According to Big League Stew, the photographer approached Victorino only to be cut off with a quick “No I’m not holding that up, bro.”

The Phillies center fielder played nice from there on out, but reportedly referred to the man as a “clown” after he left. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the circus!

    Phillies rank 8th in payroll for the MLB, so the “overpaid” remarks are kind of hilarious.
    You gotta love Philly fans in any sport, always trying to give themselves over-importance.
    Phillies overly lefty, pitching Pedro will be a disaster (Pedro over 100 pitches to the Yankees will be entertaining), Yankees pitches will dominate them, no matter how good Lidge might be he’s no Rivera, and I bet the Yanks will make him blow at least one save this series.
    Yankees in 4.
