VIDEO: Chris Johnson, Justin Upton topple Phillie Phanatic
The Phillie Phanatic started taunting the Braves during pre-game stretching Saturday. It didn't last, as the Braves took care of him.
The Phillie Phanatic -- one of baseball's most famous mascots -- decided to do a little taunting of the Braves during pre-game stretching Saturday night. Braves third baseman Chris Johnson was armed and ready to pay the Phanatic back and Justin Upton was quick enough to react and topple the big green one.
The Braves are so much better than the rest of the NL East they're taking out mascots with ease. I especially loved Upton and Dan Uggla stretching facing the Phanatic after the move. Well done, boys.
