||Mike Lieberthal, the mediocre at best Phillies catcher, who makes a whopping $7.5 million this year and again next year, made a crucial mistake in last nights game. In the second inning with the Phillies up 2 runs, and with ONE out, Jimmy Rollins flies out to left field. It should have been a routine play except for the fact that Lieberthal took off from second like there were two outs, so he was doubled off! Even the worst little league player does not make that mistake, let alone someone whose job it is to know how many outs there are. Heck when I played softball, the first and third base coaches would tell the runners. Jeez, Lieberthal could have looked at any of the numerous scoreboards around the stadium to find out how many outs there were.
I know the Phils are on a good streak now, and I am happy and want to see them win, but it are the little things like this that make me believe the Phils will end up tearing out our hearts like they have done in all but 8 seasons in their over 122 year history.
