this "solution" has had absolutely no effect on the phillies winning games. its like like brett myers has won any games for us because of this move. sure lieber is pitching good, but he could have done that with myers in the rotation.
To get this thread back on track, you were actually correct in your use of the word "effect" in this instance.

You sure?? I was referring to 1 member of the force. Maybe the only member.
ahh, if that's the case, then we're both wrong. "police" is a noun in plural form, thus it is used to refer to a collective group, not a single member of the group. i suppose "police officer" would then be correct; however that usage, in reference to, "the grammar police" does sound a bit ridiculous. then again, since Brett Myers just got converted from starter to set-up to mop-up to closer, i guess ridiculous is the name of the game.
