More on Chris Coste

This screenplay would be rejected in a minute!

I was browsing The Good Phight, the Phillie's blog, this morning and noticed a post by dajafi who linked to a great article in the New York Times about Chris Coste, the 33 year old rookie catcher (and former Buffalo Bison) who has captivated my attention since his storybook success in spring training for the Phillies.  Check out this link for a heartwarming story:

Coste hit his 5th homerun last night which accounted for the first two runs in Philly's 3-0 win over the Mets.  In 106 plate appearances (35 games), Chris is hitting .359 with a .573 slg.  I admit I check the Phillies box scores every morning hoping this improbable story will end happily.

(Kudos to Sal Fasano for such a kind quote in the Times article. Ya' gotta love catchers.)
