Allow myself to introduce......myself
Thought I'd get started with a little Austin Powers. Anyway, this is my initial post to my brother's blog - unless of course you count his copy-paste of part of an email conversation to a Marlins-fan friend of ours.
There's an interesting contrast in Tom's last two posts. Two members of the '80 Phillies who have seemingly different styles. Bowa seems abrasive and rubs everyone the wrong way, while (read it in your best Harry Kalas impersonation) Michael Jack Schmidt goes out of his way to recognize seemingly small positives. Could he be a candidate to replace Bowa? Would he even want to? His first go-round as manager hasn't gone well, but there isn't a wealth of talent on that Clearwater team.
