Hunter Pence bobblehead day: still on for August 21 at Citizens Bank Park

Jul 31, 2012, 4:00 PM EDT

The best laid plans of mice and men:


I don’t think anyone cares, do they? People love their bobbleheads, even if the player is gone. And given how crappy the Phillies should be by then, at least it will give people a reason to go to the ballpark.

    Pence being traded won’t stop a 30 something year old from knocking over a child to get one of them. (resisting the urge to include “especially in Philly” in comment…..)

      Unfortunately you succumbed…

        I just got it out of the way before someone else did

      Now we need a Chalie Manuel bobblehead night !

    Here’s an idea, line the outfield with the Pence bobbleheads. Their defense couldn’t possibly be worse then Pence’s and they may do better with risp.

    Well, well, well……..oh Phillies fans, good to see you all back in the land of futility where you have toiled for so many years, decades, what have you…..have fun waiting years while your team gets even older and your non-existent farm system produces nothing to help, its been great watching you guys get to be winners for a minute, but now you must go back to your whole, enjoy it

      @theawesomersfranchise, you’re an idiot
      @kcrockett1, we would like to go back to our wholes, but some are less fortunate and only have halves and quarters.

      Wow. You should pipe down there. Sounds like you are bitter against Philly for some reason. You did win it all in 2010, right? You should probably be flexing your special spelling and hatred towards the Dodgers right now. Save your banter for a town that gives a shit about your second rate opinion.

    I bought 4 lower level tickets at face value from a season ticket holder for $180 total. I then turned around and made a quick $120 profit selling all 4 for $300 the following week because this game was in such demand. The team blows and Pence isn’t even there on HIS night….lol.

      Oh yeah?
      I have cheap ipad’s for sale. And speakers. And jerseys. And tennis shoes. And hats.
      Cheap…cheap…cheap. They are going fast. Better snatch em’ up.

    • ackid47 - Aug 1, 2012 at 6:58 PM

      you are so cool,wow wish i was as smart as you…

    They were originally going to scrap it and change it to a Polanco Bobblehead day instead, but they were afraid of the injuries they could cause.

    @ncp2 touche

  7. unlost1 - Jul 31, 2012 at 4:56 PM

    all of Philly will throw them on the field. ( I accept no liability for this posting)

    Let the Phillies take their cue from the Mariners, re: bobblehead day. This year Manager Eric Wedge sat Dustin Ackley on the bench on his (Ackley’s; has a manager ever had one?) bobblehead day, and later remearked that he 1) didn’t know about it, and 2) was surprised he hadn’t heard from “upstairs” about it yet.

    Crap, I thought the Giants traded for the bobble heads in the deal. They can hit better than half our bench.

    this is stupid, you know they’re gonna change the promotion by game day.

  11. wetmorepsu12 - Jul 31, 2012 at 6:34 PM

    i remember years ago the phillies were doing a promotional giveaway with scott rolen tshirt’s and he went to francona to take him out of the lineup that day.

    I’m hoping to buy one on eBay!
