the real reason the phillies lost yesterday

14 04 2008

there are plenty of reasons that the phillies couldn’t pull off a win yesterday for a series sweep of the cubbies:

– the jenkins experiment

– the mark derosa jedi mind trick homerun

– 2 for 11 with runners in scoring position

– leaving 15 runners on base

– the errors…again.  and even more bad defensive plays that were not called errors

– the bullpen blowing a lead in the 8th inning

but this morning while going through the articles about the game i cam across this photo.

don\'t try this in september

if this single dad had any jam he would have sacrificed the kid in order to possibly (the umps owed us a call) get chase this home run in the bottom of the 10th.  i am just kidding of course, but seriously at what point in the season does that become a legitimate concern?  i would say late august.


ps.  you owe me 3.5 fantasy points green hat
