Phils’ Brown, Phanatic, others know how to stay warm during arctic blast

Philadelphia’s high on Tuesday was 14 degrees.

In New York, the high was 20, but that was just after midnight. During the day, the high reached a balmy 10 degrees.

Chicago’s Tuesday high? 6.

Minneapolis? 3.

Fargo, ND? 2 below zero. That’s below zero!

Heck, Orlando only reached 47.

So what’s a ballplayer to do during these chilly times?

Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Domonic Brown had a good idea.


Just chillin with my boy the #phanatic #phillies #phancation #philliesnation #cancun

Pittsburgh Pirates closer Jason Grilli was nowhere near Cancun.

Atlanta right-hander Brandon Beachy was in a pool, but not the type most prefer.

Mr. Eccentric Brian Wilson found someone to chill with.

We don’t think too many people are feeling sorry for Kansas City Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer.

We’re hoping Cincinnati Reds second baseman was nowhere near and somewhere far north of Hosmer’s Florida location.


Sometimes its good to hang out with yourself. #bighead #Jaco #America #whitecastle #doubleteam

Toronto Blue Jays shortstop Jose Reyes complained about the weather, but it didn’t stop him from getting in his reps.

Reyes’ teammate Jose Bautista and Baltimore Orioles outfielder Julio Borbon worked out, too.

And last but not least, Indians right-hander Vinnie Pestano enjoyed a meal worthy of some "Big Lebowski" quotes.
