WHETHER OR NOT we realize it, one of the reasons for our fascination with professional sports is that they share so many variables with the lives that we live. You can wake up with a body feeling like a million bucks, a head uncluttered and free, and talent that is the envy of your fellow man, but you cannot control the strike that is called a ball, or the grounder that sneaks through the infield, or the blooper that finds the one patch of grass not guarded by a defender. Last year, Vance Worley experienced many of these moments, none more significant than the one that occurred on the morning of Dec. 6, when the continuous buzzing of his phone kept interrupting the closing stages of his elliptical workout at Citizens Bank Park.

There is a moment, immediately before Vanimal hurls a baseball with his right hand, when Vance Worley surfaces. He separates his hands and reaches back until the ball is hidden behind him. His right arm rises, ready to unload as his body catapults toward home plate, and that's when it happens. Six years ago - before Vance was Vanimal, before he wrote angry messages to himself inside his hat, before he transformed from middling non-prospect to one of the best rookie starters in Phillies history - he was an unassuming freshman with a buzz cut. He asked Chris Aquino, then a junior catcher for Long Beach State University, if he would catch a bullpen session before the school year even started.
