Open Thread - Game #17: Mets vs. Phillies (04/20/2008)

Yesterday we had Tim McCarver, tonight we get Joe Morgan. If you need any more evidence that Jebus hates Mets fans I don't know what to tell you.

Despite doing nothing noteworthy while batting in the eight hole, Luis Castillo has been magically whisked back to the two-hole, where he will continue to do nothing noteworthy. Ironically, now that the Mets have finished their stretch of facing five straight left-handed starters, Willie Randolph has moved the lefty-hitting Ryan Church from second down to sixth. Is it crazy or just plain retarded? You be the judge.

On the Philthy side of the fence, Jimmy Rollins has been placed on the 15-day disabled list for the first time in his career. A clutch move if I've ever seen one.
