The Philadelphia Inquirer's Matt Gelb relays there is a possum on the left field fence of Ashburn Field in Clearwater taking in some spring training workouts. The Phillies are keeping their distance but police fear the animal is rabid and have called in animal control.
This could mean a whole number of things and I don't think any of them are good. There is the obvious "possums play dead on the road and, now, so will the Phillies." I'm sure there are more but I don't feel like giving this more than three seconds of actual thought.
This is just weird and possums kinda creep me out.
