Previously owned by Dodgers closer Jonathan Broxton, Jonathan Broxton was officially turned over to a group of Phillies led by Carlos Ruiz following a dramatic, walk-off win on Thursday.

“We now fully own Jonathan Broxton, but don’t expect things to change around here,” said majority owner Ruiz, who is now 3-for-3 against Broxton for his career with three doubles and four RBIs. “We will still pound his straight, 98-mph meat like we always have and he will likely stay as fat, if not more fat, than he has always been.”

The transfer of ownership to the Phillies ends a 26-year run by Broxton that included a disastrous senior prom in 2002 and surrendering an epic home run to Matt Stairs in Game 4 of the NLCS in 2008.
