Starting Pitching Blows/Woes

Just how shitty has our starting pitching been? Shit is heaped higher than the lone port-a-potty at a Mexican food convention.

Starting Pitching Through 26 Games:
*Have allowed 5+ runs 9 times.
*Haven't managed to last 5 innings 8 times.
*Allowed 36 homeruns.
*Have an era of 6.60 and whip of 1.77. I know era/whip can be deceiving, but there's no deception in those numbers, that's flat-out horrible.
*Brett Myers is the era leader with a robust 5.35.
*7 innings is the longest outing this season (thanks to Myers and Ho Park).
*Given up 180 hits in 137.2 innings, along with 53 walks, and 10 hit batters. That's 243 baserunners in 137.2 innings...shitty!!!
*Here's the kicker- have averaged only 5.28 innings per start. Steve Carlton is appalled.

dude... i think you just insulted the lone port-a-potty at a Mexican food convention

GM-Carson said...

I'm damn glad to have my computer back. Not being able to vent this week through the blog only made matters worse.

Cole Hamels needs to step up and give the Phils a gem tonight. That's what aces do. He hasn't pitched like an ace since October.

Andrew said...

does someone need to kill a chicken or something to make sure Hamels doesn't have another freak accident?

hey chan ho you pitch six scoreless innings and your ERA is 6.67 you are really really bad

chan ho parking lot said...

yes I am bad. just as bad as the rest of out staff

Chris said...

You Mets fans are hilarious. Your team is mediocre and you win 2 games against us and come here flexing nuts. Your team is pathetic, your city is pathetic, and you are pathetic. School must have let out early today.

Chris said...

Where did all you meat head Mets fans go?

njh723 said...

you mean the one mets fan?

Chris said...

Bunch of clowns. Mets fans with no friends resort to talking to themselves.

GM-Carson said...

Win- nice. Retain 1st- nice. Brad Lidge completely sucking this season- alarming.

Lidge has been horrible. Can't locate his pitches and has given up 5 homeruns already. He's lucky he was perfect last year, or he'd be getting the Tom Gordon "boo" treatment.

tamtam said...

HAHAHAAAA!!!! love the mexican food and 1 lone port-o-poop bit!

yeah, back here in chi-town, our pitching hasnt been too good either. with the exception of buerhle, all our starters pretty much belong in the toilet with your bullpen.

gm-carson and burton: have you guys abandoned 'more hardball'? some updates would be most appreciated!!

beltran bomb said...

make it five in a row

delgodo is GOD said...

Did you see the home run delgado hit that was really big

beltran bomb said...

we are just one fire six out of seven. How about niese looked good. I think he is going to be a great pitcher someday

beltran bomb said...

he has a good curve ball that he can throw for strikes

chan ho parking lot said...

Great game we really showed those pirates

mets 2009 Nl east division champs!! said...

I just saw something that I cant belive a PHILLIES FAN ON A PHILLIES BLOG how rare.

chan ho parking lot said...

chan ho parking lot said...

chan ho parking lot said...

jason werthless said...

mets fan said...

Jason Werthless you are right they are horrible fans THERE ARE MORE METS FANS THAN PHILLIES FANS ON A PHILLIES BLOG !!!!!!! How can that happen.

Dan said...

Who are these tard Mets fans? I mean, geez, the Mets are already behind the Phillies in the standings, and we haven't even gotten to their annual September collapse yet! Idiots.

mets 2009 Nl east division champs!! said...

mets fan this is not a phillies blog it is a mets blog

mets 2009 Nl east division champs!! said...

stop bringing up the past Dan talk about now and how you got sweept and of yeah the mets didnt collapse last year they were 7 games behind the phillies in the middle of the year their bullpen was S**T they cound't hold a 7 run lead. now they got not one but two closers you only beat us by three games.

chan ho parking lot said...

right on

jason werthless said...

you also forgot to say that the mets have the best bullpen ERA in the national league. and lst year the were the second worse

mets 2009 Nl east division champs!! said...

this is a different year a different team a different manager different bullpen = different results

chan ho parking lot said...

you can just tell they are playing better as a team they rose to the challenge

mets 2009 wrold series champs said...

The mets are back this year

Chris said...

I can't believe one person has this much time on his hands. Fucking clown.

Dan said...

You know, part of me doesn't want to respond to this Mets jackass, but I just can't resist. His words are challenging to decode, as he has evidently decided to damn the punctuation/spelling/basic literacy and charge full speed ahead into being a dipshit. He says:

"stop bringing up the past Dan talk about now and how you got sweept and of yeah the mets didnt collapse last year they were 7 games behind the phillies in the middle of the year their bullpen was S**T they cound't hold a 7 run lead. now they got not one but two closers you only beat us by three games."

Stop bringing up the past? Good call, bro. I probably shouldn't be talking like the Phils are the top team in the NL East until they actually are the top team in the NL East, right?

Oh hang on. I guess right now would be a great time to say that then, huh? Good call, man.

Bob D said...

Chris, you figured it out. That is just 1 person who created a bunch of accounts act like the moron that he is. Someone needs a life.

Bob D said...

Good to see Hamels pitch a quality start. Maybe now the staff will start the turn around process to fix the problems it has.

GM-Carson said...

I woke up and got excited by 51 comments, then I clicked on the page and actually saw what it was.
