Girardi’s move of having Soriano intentionally walking Markakis to get to Jones an unconventional move, one that was dictated by his gut or a hunch. Nope. The “book” says that Soriano has great numbers on Jones so creating a force play where a wild pitch, passed ball, HBP, catcher’s interference, BB plates a run is no big deal. Oy Vey.

Phineas: We’re going to follow the “book” no matter what happens. Even if it means forcing in a run.
Phineas: I know what you’re thinking….
Phineas: …. where’s Perry?
