Let’s loosely look at last night’s eighth inning through the lens of a few random observations:
- Delmon Young isn’t fast.
- Charlie Manuel wanted to pinch run for him, but John McDonald apparently isn’t appreciably faster than DELMON YOUNG.
- John McDonald has a career .602 OPS.
- John McDonald has a career batting average- over 15 seasons- of .236.
- Delmon Young couldn’t score from first on a double.
