Domonic Brown is not in Phillies starting lineup Friday.
Brown will miss yet another game with the same illness that has kept him out all week. It is apparently due to inflamed and/or infected tonsils but Brown says he will wait until after the season to have them removed. Hard to imagine that a decision like that wouldn't be up to team doctors which leads some to speculate that it may not be tonsillitis, but an acute case of can't-hit-the-ball-to-save-his-life-itis which has been known to put numerous ballplayers on the bench in favor of better hitters.ANALYST: Howard Bender
