The Phillies and Marlins will continue the home run derby as they make up a rain postponed game from so early in the season the Phillies were still vying to be a .500 team. Since our hope for a good game was crushed in the matinee, I'm sure expectations are low enough that we can all have a cordial conversation about the inevitable inanities of being a mind trapped in a body. Maybe baseball too.
