Brotherly Love, De Fratus Style

Steven De Fratus happens to be related to one of the Phillies' top young relief pitchers, a fellow named Justin.

Steven's nickname for his adoring brother is "J-Bone" and Steven is hoping that moniker will catch on with the Philadelphia faithful some day soon. It's clear that a rookie on the rise with a team already loaded with household names might be in need of a little love from the fan base. Wouldn't it be a fine time to let Justin know that, even in the off-season, the fans are behind him? In addition to that, it's the season of giving. What about providing Steven with a bit of love as well, by kicking the nickname of his choosing into gear by sending Justin a shout out?

If there's any doubt that you want to help Steven achieve a bit of success via insider handle usage, just take a look at how, even months after it happened, the elder De Fratus brother is still taking jabs at Justin in relation to how close he came to surrendering a homerun to Cardinals star Lance Berkman in his big league debut.

As overly used as the phrase has become, "The City of Brotherly Love" is a term that applies, even for the De Fratus siblings, who live clear across the nation in California. Support Steven's cause...send a "Hi, J-Bone" directly to @JustinDeFratus, via Twitter.
