    Things to not think very hard aboutmad_upside_down_tiny.jpg:

    1) Looks like the Phillies are giving Ben Revere a try in center. Anyone recall how he got on their roster?

    I heard they were ditching nexdef for some other kind of plugin. That is supposed to take effect on opening day.

    edit: Serious answer, the Phils have 2 hooters ball girls shagging foul balls today. No, seriously. Hooters girls.

    I'm not really speaking to the quality of the broadcast as I'm speaking to the quality of the team. Although, not watching them in stop motion would be a step up.

    This isn't helping. Or, to put it another way, it is.

    Were those 2 throws by Hicks really bad?

    Could you tell what he was trying to do?

    Bad throws or bad decisions?

    First throw sailed badly
    2nd throw was about 5 feet up the 1st base line (no hop), Pinto just didn't catch it.
    3rd throw was about 4 feet up the 3rd base line, one hop, Pinto caught it in time to get the runner.

    Decision was good on all of them.

    Thanks Willi. It is hard to tell from tweets what is going on but would rather see a bad throw than a bad decision. It happens. And nice that he nailed that 3rd one.
