Ricky Bennett got to see a great game

And it wasn't in the Astros organization. Nope, Ricky Bennett was at the Lakewood BlueClaws - Single-A affiliate of the Phillies - game last night (along with scouts from the White Sox and Rangers), as pitcher Jesse Biddle threw 6IP, 3H/2ER, 8K:3BB and Lakewood got a walk-off win over Greenville.

Biddle, on the trade rumors, in what sounds like a prayer to God:
The truth is I want to play for the Phillies, everybody knows that. If the Phillies want to trade me at some point than they can do that but the fact is I want to play for the Phillies. That's the team I've always wanted to play for.”

(We ran this through the Baseball Translator, which turned up: "Please God, don't let them trade me to the Astros.". Interesting.)

Nah. Biddle was a local kid, drafted by his home town team. I'd imagine that for him being traded away from the Phillies organization would be like Chris Wallace being traded away from the Astros organization.

And Chris Truby is Lakewood's manager. Maybe Bennett was down there trying to lure Truby back to play 3B for the Astros...
