In Memoriam: John Bowker’s Phillies Career

John Bowker, we hardly knew ye.   John Bowker has been released.  Bowker will wisely head to Japan, where even Scott Mathieson is a millionaire.

The Phillies' primary left-handed August trade deadline acquisition, Bowker went 0 for 13, for a lusty .000 batting average, and clogged a 40-man roster spot for most of the offseason.

The Phillies now have a 40-man roster spot to add another player.

Please post your favorite John Bowker memory.  Mine is that time he hit a ball foul down the line that was *almost* a hit.
