The PHL 17 cameras captured this tender moment between Wilson Valdez and Brian Schneider during Sunday’s route of the Braves. Adorable.

Wilson Valdez is now, improbably, a part of the Baseball Hall of Fame. The hat that he wore the night he became the last position player since Babe Ruth to start a game in the field and record a win as a pitcher is now in the Hall forever to be preserved as a part of history. As Wheels would say, baseball sure is a goofy game.

I was there last night, didn’t get home until nearly 2:00 am, and had to be in work this morning at 7:30. I know, waahhhhh, right? Well, I’m just explaining the reason why nothing about this game has been posted yet.

For now though, this screenshot of Roy Halladay* throwing a shaving cream pie in the face of Wilson Valdez during the post-game interview with Sarge will have to suffice. You know you’ve done something right when Roy Halladay feels the need to do childish thing like this.

WILSON VALDEZ!

*I think it’s Halladay. Could be Madson though.

I can barely keep up with all the different variations of the mohawk these days, but it looks like Wilson Valdez broke out his own interpretation of the ‘do during yesterday’s 2-0 loss to the Rangers. It’s not quite a faux-hawk, because I’m pretty sure that would require the sides of his head to be shaved down a bit, and it’s not nearly as bad as Chipper’s do-it-yourself-hawk that he had during the Phillies game a couple weeks ago, and it’s DEFINITELY not an authentic mohawk like Jonny Gomes used to sport. Whatever it is, it seems to be an extension of that horrendous billy goat beard on his chin.

Here, have a look yourself, but for now I’m calling it the Wilson Valdez bronzed skunk-hawk:

Via City Paper’s The Clog, an apologetic woman turns to Craigs List to seek forgiveness as she may or may not have drunkenly thrown a homemade friendship bracelet at Carlos Ruiz. Oh, and Carlos, if you’re not too busy, would you mind also telling Wilson Valdez that she is sorry? Thanks, pal.

My only advice to Chooch would be to keep the envelope she sends him the friendship bracelet in so he knows where to eventually send the restraining order.

Prior to June 19th, 2010, backup to the backup Wilson Valdez had a whopping ONE home run in five seasons of major league service. Then, this weekend, he hit homers in back-to-back games and saw his career tater total triple. Surely that type of power surge requires some kind of signature move after he hits one out, and Sammy Sosa isn’t using his anymore, so Wilson figured he’d take it.
