Garrett Stubbs Should Be The First Player To Make The Hall Of Fame As A Locker Room Guy

Every great team needs a great locker room guy. A guy who is going to keep the vibes high all season long, regardless of how things are going. The type of guy who thrives on the aux cord, always has a few ice cold beers stashed away somewhere for after games, makes sure to get all the showers hot and running for everybody and is the first one in there and the last one out. 

Seasons are far too long and without the proper locker room guy keeping everybody going, it can quickly turn to shit. You need star players, no doubt about it. But the locker room guy is arguably just as important. And there may not be a better one in the history of professional sports than Phillies backup catcher Garrett Stubbs. Just look at this little freak go. 

Fortunately for the Phillies, they have an entire roster full of Locker Room Guys. It's part of what makes this team so dangerous in the post season. Nobody wants to party in the clubhouse after clinching a series more than this Phillies team does. They live to drench each other in alcohol and dance like some wild men. Every pitch, every great defensive play, every at-bat, every hit just means more to this team because it makes them one step closer to being able to throw a rager in the clubhouse. 

But Garrett Stubbs is clearly the party starter. He's the straw that stirs the drink. The #1 locker room guy on potentially the #1 locker room team to ever exist. That has to put Garrett Stubbs in an elite category. Which is why I think it's a no-brainer that he ends up making it into the Hall of Fame one day as the first ever Locker Room Guy. Especially if this team can go on another magical run here and cap it off by actually doing the damn thing and winning a World Series. At that point he'd be a first ballot guy. 


Sidenote: Only issue with Garrett Stubbs being such a menace is that he might have had the boys a little too turnt up last night. 

The Phillies play again tonight at 6:40. Stubbs will be behind the plate. This is going to be the most violently hungover team to ever exist. It might be financially beneficial for you to hammer the Pirates line right now. 

Sidenote #2: PLAY THE DAMN SONG!!!
