and the Phillies still sucked.

18-44 to start the season, and 5 errors in a home loss to the cubs.

    Got to love that potent lineup with a Possum, Irish and Nig in it. How inclusive the Phillies organization was back then allowing an Irish and a Nig in their lineup. Good job boys !

    The Phillies were founded in 1883 in Philadelphia. That's 136 seasons of baseball and 2 world championships. That's one every 68 years. Being that their last ring came in the year 2008, their next one will be when stevek's great, great, great grandkids are running the liberal democratic party in Boston, Mass. Perhaps if their players didn't crap the bed so much, they'd have more rings.

    Hot dogs were way cheaper though.

    Back when the Phillies sucked, a car cost you $500 dollars, and a house cost you $3,500 dollars.
    I think Bryce Harper makes $3,500 dollars each time he swings the bat.

    However, this statement could also read....."Back when the Phillies sucked, a car cost you $35,000 dollars, and a house cost you $500,000 dollars".

    Either statement is fine with me.

    Because of satellite tv, you can live on Mars and still enjoying watching the Phillies suck from the comforts of your own home. A summer day on Mars can get up to 70 degrees, but at night time it plummets to minus 100 below zero. The theory is that Mars will be the wood burning stove capitol of the universe, and stockpiles of Bryce Harper rookie cards will be the only fuel source to burn to keep civilization going.

    Harper is earning what $35,000,000 or so? Divided by 162 games that is a bit over $200,000 per game. Figure a dozen swings a game and you are at over $15,000 per swing.

    So if it takes Harper an average of 10 swings to get a hit, he basically gets paid $150,000 to get a hit ? If he gets 12 swings a game, and I'm guessing he gets a hit 1 out of every 4 at bats ? I think my math is wrong though. If Harper is hitting around .250, how much money does he get for each hit ?

    Your $150,000 estimate per hit is pretty close.

    I would get a lot more per hit. I figure I would be lucky and swing in the right place and maybe get 1 hit a year....so I would be making 35 million per hit! :o
