Brilliant post! Wonderful. I laughed out loud. Thank you.

I can't think of a better argument against ILP than the post you just wrote.

The Phils did beat the Rangers tonight 8-5, and I don't want to just look for negatives, but 2 things stand out for me in this game:
1) Another baserunning blunder that cost the Phillies at least one run. This is not someone testing a fielder's throwing arm, but forgetting how many outs there were. I'm still having some problems with the Phillies' 1st and 3rd base coaches. There are way too many mistakes on the basepaths.
2) Of course letting Cormier bat with the bases loaded and 2 outs was ridiculous. The Rangers had earlier scored 4 runs in a heartbeat, so a 4 run lead was NOT safe. Why not try to blow it open? And it wasn't like Charley was trying to keep his best pitcher in the game. There were better arms available.

I wonder if the Phillies should think about Lofton leading off and Rollins batting second?

Jason: I have now re-read this post three times and find it more hilarious and brilliant each time. I'd love to be able to suggest how you might get it wider exposure.
