The Daily Numbers for Monday, May 19

The Daily Numbers: 20 runs produced by Phils in 2 wins over Reds this weekend.

23 scoreless innings that preceded the outburst.

6 home runs for the Phils in those 2 wins.

25 dingers in the first 39 games of the season.

4 Dems who continue to campaign furiously for the right to go against incumbent Pa. Gov. Tom Corbett in the fall.

3 Democrats who are seeking the nomination in the hotly contested 164th District state House seat.

336 grads who collected their diplomas at Cabrini College yesterday.

40 students and 3 professors who opposed a speaker at Haverford College commencement. He decided to skip the affair. A man who did speak criticized the students and profs for their actions. Good for him.

17.6 million dollar loan being floated by Wallingford-Swarthmore School District to finance their debt.

13-inning heartbreaker of a loss for Widener baseball to end their season.

Call me a Phanatic: A look at the ups and downs of being a Philadelphia sports fan. Looks like the Phillies may have found their bats. Kudos to Ryne Sandberg for not being afraid to make changes in attempts to get things going.

I Don’t Get It: Since when do students get to make the decision about who the speaker is at commencement?

Today’s Upper: Kudos to former Princeton boss William Bowen, who made clear he believed the uproar at Haverford that led to a speaker backing out was a loss for the schools.

Quote Box: “Love people like crazy.”
