What If…things were different…Posted: July 23, 2009
Yes, it’s that big ‘WHAT IF’, there’s a lot of things you could do with a mulligan or a ‘WHAT IF’, but think about this…..
WHAT IF… in your job you could be traded to a competitor, or sent down to a lower level of employment or released and replaced with someone
from a competitors company and that was the only way you could work, no resumes to write, you couldn’t apply for a job, you just had to work hard and hope you were noticed or good enough to be picked up by a company so you could earn a living… how many people would still have the jobs they’ve got now..
WHAT IF … ballplayers had to fill out resumes and apply to other ball teams to get a new job, what if teams had no say in who left and when they left, who would be playing where now, and how many would actually be playing..
WHAT IF … there was no trade deadline ..would you see a large volume of trades come the end of September or not…
WHAT IF … they allowed tied games and instead of wins and losses the divisions were decided on a points system, say 3 points for a win, 1 for a draw, 0 for a loss…
WHAT IF … they had replay for all disputed calls, how long would a game take…
WHAT IF … there was a time limit per inning and you could have has many batters as you wanted go to the plate…
WHAT IF … people really did treat others the way they would want to be treated themselves
WHAT IF … common sense wasn’t so un-common
WHAT IF … yesterdays game was a night game and the Phillies won….
I for one wouldn’t be writing this just for something to write….
I also know somethings in life will just never happen
So San Diego comes to town for a make-up game tonight.. here’s hoping Cole Hamels give us the outing we all know he is capable of and the Phillies start a new win streak….
