That was the greatest prank ever. The look on Kendrick's face was priceless. That prank is a lot better than what happens in NFL training camps (taping rookies to goal posts ect.)

That's awesome that on top of everything else, they were apparently going to send him off on a 14.5 hour flight in coach...

I guess I'm the only one who saw the clip and thought, "Eh". He doesn't break down at all; the only reason they have anything is b/c Brett Meyers keeps bugging him about it. It's a great idea for a prank and I'm sure they really rocked his world for half an hour, but they didn't get any really great footage.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

Just me, or is the absolutely craziest thing about this was that he actually signed something right then and there for the management without an agent or anyone present??? 8-o 8-o 8-o

That's easily the most crazy thing about this to me... the prank is pretty good, but him signing something without consulting someone just blows my freaking mind.

That was a funny prank
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

"Does he throw hard? Does he have a good sinker or what? They didn't tell you anything about him??"

Excellent stuff from the Phils, I love stuff like this.
