Phils fire what?

Mr. V normally leaves the Hilarious Typo Patrol duties to the various copy editing blogs out there, but this item actually took me a second to make sense of. The fact that Slavo is a man's name connects with the firing thing (but you never fire anybody during the World Series, basically). And having Phils in there maybe triggers some connection to slavophile, slavophilic, etc.

From the Washington Post website, no doubt soon to be fixed.

Hmmmm, I'm almost as bothered by "Juicy result at the Trop".

Good thing you got the images -- it's of course now been fixed on the WaPo website!
