2008-01-17 14:00:00 (link to chat)Any idea why the Phils insist on settling for mediocrity at third base?
(mattymatty2000 from Philly Pa)
The curse of Rick Schu? I really have no idea, but it would be maddening if I was a Phillies fan.

(In fairness to Rick Schu, IIRC Huckabay tells a story of playing against him in a semi-pro league after Schu's MLB days, and averred that Schu wasn't just the best player in the league, he was the best at everything. Anytime some smartass like me bashes on even the bad ballplayers, it's worth remembering that "bad" is compared to "best ballplayers on this or any planet.") (Christina Kahrl)
