I'd be curious what the social dynamics are on this Phils team... does Hamels hang out with the guys, or no?

On the Polanco thing, I can see it either way, I'm personally more pissed about Werth's absolutely retarded baserunning the inning before. I mean, there's absolutely no excuse for that, the ball was hit right at Reyes, really poor decision.
It was a bad decision by Werth, but at the same time I understand trying to be a bit aggressive with the way Santana had been pitching... and it's a spur of the moment type of thing. The decision to bunt is something you have time to sit down and say, "is this the right thing to do?"

What's sort of amazing about that decision is that it is SOOOOOO conservative, and Charlie has never really been a conservative offensive manager. The injuries are clearly affecting him a lot.
