….to ask Brian Peoples if it gets hot inside that green costume, just think about how many times a day someone says that to him.

The other thing to keep in mind, if you’re even halfway considerate, is that Ryan Madison is a strong candidate to replace Brian if the former has another outing like he did tonight versus the Nationals.

I’ve been trying to figure out a good reason why Ryan Howard is hitting 7th for Philly and this is the best one I could come up with : National League pitchers won’t be able to pitch around David Bell so easily.

I didn’t say it would make sense, just that it was the best one I could come up with.
