Lidge has been activated for the Mets series with Bastardo sent down. Bastardo has pitched well, but he's the easy option for the Phils because of his minor league options.

What?!

Order of operation does not apply, follow steps of the problem A-E.

Incorrect. Be careful with the wording on this one. One of the clues can easily hang you up.

Pi.

Joseph said...

does DH count as a position

Joseph said...

Answer is 34 if DH is not a position

GM-Carson said...

Ring-ding-dong, ring-a-ding-ding-dong!

34 is the answer.

DH is NOT a position.

Good job Joseph.

Corey- I'll do my best to make one of these answers actually turn out to be Pi, but I doubt I'll succeed.

I wonder how many "awww... crap"'s went through the clubhouse upon hearing the Lidge news. Except for Madson who has come to the conclusion that sucking in the 8th is considerably less high profile than sucking in the 9th.

Anyone else notice the 2x defending NL champs have played a MLB-least 6 home games and MLB-most 15 away games. What ever happened to the 3 game home-in-home series? Why does it seem that the schedule has been rearranged into larger blocks?

It's a minor point, but still....paging Mr. Dangerfield, Mr. Rodney Dangerfield

I'm still wondering why the hell the Phils opened on the road. They were in the World Series last year, they should open the season at home.

i still don't know karate

Corey said...

you mean that DH is not a "defensive position." it most certainly is an "offensive position." that needs to be clarified.

GM-Carson said...

Ambiguity was key to the difficulty level of the problem.
