Grant Brisbee outlines the Phillies' formula for getting back in the playoff race, including:
"It's usually a good idea to promote Kevin Frandsen, insert him into the starting lineup, and wait for John Mayberry to get hot"
"Find your most valuable player during the first part of the season and injure him. Then summon a 32-year-old journeyman catcher from the minors to replace his production"
See, we knew Ruben and Charlie had a plan, we just needed somebody to decipher it for us.
