Tropical Storm Debby puts Bright House Field underwater

Jun 25, 2012, 8:49 AM EST

Tropical Storm Debby is rough stuff and has spawned deadly storms and floods. But it has also spawned a metaphor of the Phillies season thus far in the form of this pic taken by prospect  Justin De Fratus down in Clearwater yesterday:


That’s Bright House Field, the spring training home of the Phillies.

Gosh, I hope they got the tarp on.

    Picking on the Phillies at this point in the season is a clown move by Mother Nature.

    With a wuss name like “Debby”, I can understand why that storm never became a hurricane.

    Considering the age of Phillies roster and given that this occurred in Florida – there just has to be a sponsorship angle that can be exploited . . .

    Yes, I’m talking to you Depends!

      Our friend dirtyharry1971 has the market cornered on Depends.

    What’s next, the Phanatic spraining his snout?

    You need a rainout? I can get you a rainout.

    Mother Nature always bats last.

      Mother Nature will have the last walk off. Too bad we humans won’t be around to see it, glorious it will be.

    Tropical storm Bud didn’t kick up much of a fuss not so long ago.
    I think I’d rather have the girl on my team. That Debby packs a bit more punch than the old man, eh.
    I have a feeling Bud was often picked last way back when.

    Not a single “Debbie Does Bright House Field” comment? Maybe this should have been posted in the afternoon. Or Tuesday.
