(What the!? Et tu, Peacock? Screen cap via MASN/TV.)
[Update: It isn't. See comments below. Definitely *not* Peacock's Mom. Just a cousin.]
Jayson Werth sat out Thursday night's Nats-Phillies game, still feeling the effects of getting drilled in the elbow on a throw by Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz on Wednesday. But Jayson Werth's Beard was still hard at work on Twitter: Werth's beard Tweeted a question about the woman sitting to the right of Brad Peacock's Dad at Citizens Bank Park Thursday night (apparently identified by Philly TV broadcasters as Brad Peacock's Mom), seen in a Phillies shirt. But the mystery woman was also seen on TV wearing a Nats jersey earlier in the game. Here's Werth's Beard, asking the question:
why is Peacock's mom wearing a Phillies shirt under her Nats jersey? (via @JWerthsBeard)
But are we sure that's really Brad Peacock's mom? And if that really is Brad Peacock's mom...why would she do such a thing to her kid? But even if it is Peacock's mom, it doesn't change what her son did to the Phillies on Thursday night: 5.2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 2 K. Nor does it change what the Nats did to the Phillies in 2011: 10 wins, 8 losses, 5 wins in a row. Pwned.
Can we just hit the fast forward button to 2012 now?
