Phillies Run Production (Not So Mysteriously) Down

Today’s WSJournal notes that prior to May 12, the Philadelphia Phillies were averaging 5.4 runs per game. Since May 12, they’re averaging only 3.4.

What’s so special about May 12? It was the day Major League Baseball warned the Phillies about stealing the pitching signs of teams they were playing.

No sign-stealing = fewer runs.

No spying on opponents’ practices = fewer offensive touchdowns and fewer wins for the New England Patriots.

I’m just saying.
