Yesterday, Roy Oswalt‘s big announcement was that he probably wouldn’t sign with any team until mid-season or later. And reports are that his top two choices are the Texas Rangers and St. Louis Cardinals. So does that mean there is no chance he’d make a return to Philadelphia? Not according to Phillies/MLB writer Todd Zolecki.
It is not a stretch to think that if something happens to one of the Phils’ starters that Philadelphia general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. would sign Oswalt as a replacement. – Phillies.com
Plus Oswalt has apparently not ruled out coming back. So once again this is a wait and see what happens thing.
We all know what a great guy Shane Victorino is on and off the field, so I was not surprised that he’d get into the mix in trying to get singer Taylor Swift to attend a prom with 18 year-old Kevin McGuire. Here is Kevin’s story courtesy of MyFoxPhilly.com:
This story is gaining momentum and for good reason! 18 year-old Kevin McGuire is battling cancer. He is currently undergoing treatment at CHOP. This brave senior attends Sterling High School and has his eyes set on attending senior prom with the darling of the music industry.
The prom is scheduled for june 1, which happens to be his 19th birthday. His sister thinks he deserves a special date for this very special day – and the facebook page ” Taylor Swift take KEVIN MCGUIRE TO PROM! ” was born.
Fox 29′s Bruce Gordon profiled Kevin on the 10pm news. They chatted via FaceTime. on Thursday. Kevin was a bit under the weather, but full of hope. He told Bruce, “I’m not going to be the most attractive guy out there, so just having a date like Taylor Swift would be amazing because I feel like she wouldn’t make me feel like ‘that sick kid.’ She’s make me feel like an actual prom date and it would make my birthday even better.”
So, will Taylor attend prom with Kevin?
Here is Victorino’s tweet:
I wish Kevin LOTS of luck and hope all the support helps him!
