    Did Narron make out the NL lineup?

    Why the heck is Renteria batting in front of Wright?

    Well, Narron is a coach. Narron 2 + 2 = -1

    So in other words, the sum of the parts is less than the difference of the parts.
    What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?

    Somebody should change the title of the thread to include (EDWIN NOT PLAYING AGAIN) in your honor.

    Steve Phillips on ESPN News said it looked like Wright and Renteria were in the wrong places in the lineup. He questioned Garners lineup.

    How can a game really "matter this time" without EE in the lineup?

    Nope. I am sure the NL's RPG will be under it's average because EE isn't playing.

    I saw in a News paper article something that was a funny article. It said what would happen if they played extra innings and ran out of pitchers again. The article asked would Bud Selig then have the Managers do Rock, Paper, Scissors for home field advantage in the World series.

    I was holding out hope that they'd just connect an XBox to the jumbotron and then sim out the rest of the game.

    Nah, Jerry didn't make the lineup.

    Supposedly, Narron was assigned to make out the lineup----they like his handwriting. True story, if the article I read can be believed.
