Destination .500?


Happy Easter everyone! Chan Ho Park makes his first start as a Phillie, following his flawless debut in relief earlier in the week. He'll be opposed by the Rockies Opening Day starter Aaron Cook. If the Phils win they'll be at .500 and the Rox will drop to .500, so mediocrity is the goal today.

Fluff:
*Carlos Ruiz has been DL'd with an oblique strain, and catching prospect Lou Marson takes his place on the roster.

*More Hardball does a rundown of MLB's week 1, with mention of Brett Myers 6 homeruns surrendered (on pace to allow 194). Myers is pictured to the right with Braves rookie Jordan Schafer, whom Myers served up a fat pitch to in his first MLB at bat for one of those 6 homers.

*Raul Ibanez 2 homeruns; Pat Burrell 0 homeruns. Raul Ibanez .250 average, .968 OPS, 4 rbi; Pat Burrell .125 average, .301 OPS, 0 rbi. Just sayin'...

*2009 Phillies 2-3 after 5 games; 2008 Phillies 2-3 after 5 games. Just sayin'...

What the F is going on with all the bombs our starters are giving up?

Why do i keep hearing that phillies players are "not quite ready yet" or "just need to get some more at bats" or just need to get their work in"
Didn't we have a month and a half of spring training just like every year? And for the guys at the WBC.....didn't you guys play baseball there and get at bats????
WTF.......BE READY THE SEASON STARTED!!!!!!!! NO MORE EXCUSES......SHUT THE F UP AND PLAY BALL!!!

I am so Fing tired of losing every April and all the lame excuses that come with it.

that's some bad math. unless we're going with 4 starters. i guess that's the pace he's on at this second, but 97, the actual pace he's on, is not so hot either

Myers just isn't getting away with mistakes. He will eventually but to this point a little bad luck has something to do with those balls going in the seats. We will be fine. Cook is 1-4 with a 6.14 ERA against the Phils lifetime so look for us to jump all over that hanging sinker.

Yes "Anonymous", Myers' homerun projections are inflated because he's made 2 of the first 5 starts. Regardless of how you slice and dice it though, he's pretty much suck-o-matic right now.

Didn't take long for Chan Blow Park to snuggle into the bed with the rest of the Phillies starters.

GM-Carson said...

C'mon already with this starting pitching, it's horrible. Every starter giving up homeruns, tons of hits, and having short outings needs to stop.

CHASE FUCKING UTLEY!

We should all bow before Stairs, for he is a Pinch-Hitting God!
