What If…things were different…

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
helpwanted.jpgfrom 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….

    Some interesting What Ifs there! So I’ll add….What if each team had four outs instead of three? The games would take longer, but would the scores be that different? Hm.

    Whoa, a lot of “what ifs!” Hm..if there was no trade deadline? It would be crazy! & Well..no we didn’t comeback. We battled & tried our best though. The final was 10-6 Jays. http://tribechick.mlblogs.com/ -TC

    Good article, Peter.

    Actually, no, I dont like Sarge that much. It’s just I can take him a whole lot better than I can take Wheeler. Notice Sarge was not in my dream team. =)

    I think it’s pretty pathetic when Sarge is arguably the most likeable guy on the Phillies’ tv booth!

    We sure did! šŸ™‚ We beat the Jays 5-4. & Guess what that means? It was a big game, because now we are in 4th place in our division. It’s a lot better than last, dont you think? Haha. I cant wait to blog about this win tommorow- I probably wont have time to do it today. Plus I’m just used to blogging in the morning anyways šŸ™‚

    That’s a lot of ifs you have there, I don’t know if all of those can be fulfilled though, that’s some good points you have there.

    I’m thinking that you guys are going to start a new winning streak tonight. The Pads are struggling and despite your loss to the Cubbies last night, you are still one of the better teams in the NL. So don’t hurt ’em too bad.

    Ooooh, I love the entry! The article picture is hilarious, I love it. Makes you think :]
    Aw thanks for the congrats. HAHA, I bet it IS because I reported someone!! How funny would that be? They probably felt sorry for me because that guy was being so mean and sexist, hehe. xoxo http://diamondgirl55.mlblogs.com

    Interesting ‘what if’ scenarios… still, what I love about baseball is that none of those things will happen… that no matter what era, what city, what country, the game is the same. AMEN!
