    The FO learned their lesson on Danny Graves and the huge gap in his reputation and performance, yet they continue to defiantly play Aurilia nearly every day despite his obvious decline in production.

    If they're just giving Kearns a day off because of his struggles and don't start Aurilia for at least another 4-5 days, I have no problem with this for tonight.......and tonight alone.

    good to see the cagey veteran (Aurillia) back in the lineup over Ears, his experience will make the difference in this game

    You would think so. But no.
    I hope it's never sunny in Philly again.

    Unless it's the one who signed Aurilia in the first place who is dictating him being in the lineup.

    I wouldn't give Aurilia the nod over the bat boy, much less Austin Kearns

    This is such a dumb managerial move,,, is Miley truly this stupid... obviously the answer is yes.

    Wonder if he'll put WMP on the bench in favor of Rich Aurilia when he gets back????

    FIRE MILEY

    Starting a sub-medoza line hitter with a stone glove over a potential franchise cornerstone outfielder and a potential All Star shortstop will result in losses. And when those losses build up, somebody has to be the scapegoat, and that person is Miley, IMO (when it should be DanO too).
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.

    oh hey Krono! Do you agree with that? It seems to me that once he finishes his rehab assignment he should be inserted immediately? Platooned w/ Kearns, I mean.

    LOL, good thing that Rich told management he would only accept a one-game assignment! He knew how bad Miley needed him!!

    I don't agree with it..Wily Mo and Kearns need to get every single at bat they can..putting either on the bench for Aurilia makes me crazy

    Okay everybody, over/under for how many groundballs/line drives/plays etc. will be lost by Aurilia's lack of range at 2nd tonight? I'm betting over 2 & under 5

    George Grande dropping some OBP numbers. I'm amazed.

    Casey singles. Grande informs me that this is now an 8-game streak for him.
