Jimmy Rollins: Aging Family Dog- Rollins is like an aging family dog, he can't do nearly as many tricks as he used to be able too, but he's a part of the family so you can't get rid of him.
Chase Utley: Hawk- Utley is quite similar to a hawk, always stalking his prey just waiting for an opportune time to strike. Make one mistake in his presence and you're done for.
Ryan Howard: Lion- Strong and powerful, Howard like the lion is essential to lead the pride, without him hunting(hitting) to his capabilities the pride is lost.
Dom Brown: Lion Cub- Brown is similar to a lion cub, young and growing with expanding power. If his power continues to develop he could one day find himself the leader of the pride.
Michael Young: Turtle- Young is much like a turtle, he doesn't move so well, but he's wise beyond his years and is good to have around.
John Mayberry Jr.: Giraffe- Much like the giraffe, Mayberry Jr. is extremely tall, and does some cool stuff, but mostly just stands there eating leaves.
Carlos Ruiz: Bear- Like a bear, Ruiz looks cuddly, but get too close(with a pitch) and he will cause some real damage.
Delmon Young: Sloth- This is pretty self explanatory, Young is quite lazy and can't move very quickly in the field.
Cole Hamels: Alligator- Fun to watch, quick and powerful, the alligator resembles Hamels. Get too close and you will get bit.
Roy Halladay: Dolphin- Intelligent and poised, Halladay is much like the Dolphin, every move is calculated and he is well capable of taking down a shark.
Cliff Lee: Anaconda- Much like an anaconda, you do not want to let Lee get a grip on you or he will quickly squeeze the life out of you.
Kyle Kendrick: Hamster- Kendrick much like a pet hamster was cool when you first got him, but quickly got old. He does decent work sometimes, but mostly just takes up space.
John Lannan: Polar Bear at the Zoo- Lannan much like a polar bear at the zoo, mostly sits around doing little to entertain, odds are you'll spend 2 hours waiting for him to do something cool like dive in the water, and every so often he just may.
Laynce Nix: House Cat- Nix is like a lazy house cat. He can't do much and you don't expect much out of him, but you feel too bad to put him up for adoption (waive him).
Freddy Galvis: Gazelle- Galvis is much like the gazelle, graceful as it moves and quick, covering any and all ground, or in his case infield positions.
Kevin Frandsen & Erik Kratz: Parrots- Frandsen & Kratz are similar to a couple of parrots, you can teach them a few things and they'll be able to repeat, but they'll never fully catch on.
Mike Adams: Scorpion- Adams, much like the scorpion, quietly goes about his business, but get in his way and you're sure to get stung.
Jonathan Papelbon: Howler Monkey- Much like a howler monkey, Papelbon makes a lot of noise and is fun to watch, but each time you see him you just hope he doesn't throw poop.
Antonio Bastardo: Bee- Like a bee, Bastardo is tiny yet can hurt you badly when he stings.
The Rest of the Bullpen: Goldfish- the remainder of the bullpen is similar to a tank of goldfish, they don't really do anything special, they are just there so you can occasionally give them a look.
