PHILLIES OWNER MIDDLETON: ‘I WANT MY F-ING SERIES TROPHY BACK!’

By Sam Bush

If you want to get a glimpse into why the new-look Phillies are on the right track, check out an otherwise tedious and torturously long thumb-sucker in Philly mag on owner John Middleton, who is as competitive as most of his players.

Here’s the money excerpt:

The Phillies lost to the Yankees, and after the sixth and deciding game, John Middleton [above with 2008 ace closer Brad Lidge] went into the visitors’ locker room in the Bronx. Ryan Howard was sitting alone, his head down. In a red Phillies windbreaker and hat, Middleton knelt before him, and put his hand on Howard’s leg.

“You okay?” Middleton said.

“Yeah.”

“Ryan, I want my fucking trophy back. It’s fucking ours.”
