So Long, Sal Fasano

Sals_sign2_1That may be a frown and not a Fu Manchu after this weekend.

It’s a sad day for mustached men everywhere: Sal Fasano, one of the few uplifting stories of this sorry Phillies season, was designated for assignment over the weekend.  Despite becoming a fan favorite, the hard working journeyman catcher’s numbers just didn’t impress the decision makers to keep on 3 catchers.  There isn’t much to say on the subject in my opinion.  Sal was embraced for being a hard worker and a class act.  I’d be surprised if he ever has to buy his own beer in Philadelphia. 

So long, Sal, you will be missed.
