The patch the Phillies will wear over their hearts for the entire 2011 season will honor two men rarely seen and never heard from by fans. The white "B" in Phillies script over a black circle is a tribute to two long-time partners of the franchise's silent ownership group - Alexander K. "Whip" Buck and his brother, J. Mahlon "Jim" Buck. Both died since the end of last season. The patch is similar to the "HK" one worn in 2009 to honor broadcaster Harry Kalas. Last season, the team wore a "36" patch on the right sleeve to commemorate Robin Roberts.

WHAT DO YOU THINK the Phillies would have done if someone at Citizens Bank Park tried to display a banner with a racist slur against Jimmy Rollins or Bobby Abreu? Free speech, right? First Amendment and all that flag-hugging stuff? Keep the sign up? Nope, they would have taken it down. They would have found a way to defuse a potentially volatile situation and shrug off any threats of lawsuits. But when it comes to the area's gay and lesbian community, the Phillies are hypocrites.

Forget batting averages and the Phillies' second consecutive National League East championship. The stats juicing the city's business and tourism community these giddy days of October baseball are more along the lines of sports-merchandise sales, number of tabs being run at local bars, and total minutes of television time Philly's skyline gets during game broadcasts. The economic benefit of the Phillies' home games for the National League Division Series that began yesterday with a 3-1 Phillies win is expected to amount from $5 million to $7 million, said Larry Needle, executive director of Philadelphia Sports Congress, a division of the city's Convention and Visitors Bureau.
