Sunday Smatterings

Raul Ibanez:
Clearly the MVP of the offense. Whether he's batting 3rd, 5th, or 6th he's absolutely tattooing the baseball. Clobbering 3 homeruns in yesterday's double header is just icing on the cake for this guy. Lofty #'s- .368 avg, 1.168 OPS, 33 r, 13 hr, 35 rbi, 4 sb.



Clay Condrey:

The MVP of the pitching staff in my opinion. Has appeared in 20 of the Phils 35 games, while pitching in all kinds of situations. #'s- 20.2 ip, 16 k, 3 w, 1 sv, 1 hld, 2.61 ERA, 1.02 WHIP.



Bobby Scales:
Philadelphia likes heartwarming stories of 30+ year old rookies (see Chris Coste), well here's another one. Scales got the call-up to Chicago out of necessity and is now making people take notice. Through 7 games- 8-21 (.381), 7 r, 5 rbi, 4 xbh, 1.149 OPS. Looks a helluva lot better than Bruntlett and Cairo, too bad he wasn't still in our farm system.

Andrew Carpenter:
5 runs in 4.1 innings is not good, in fact it's bad. However, it was "good" enough to collect his first big league win, thanks to a rain shortened contest in the nightcap of the double header yesterday.


Chan Ho Park:
Rotation spots seems to be safe for now with back-to-back quality outings (2 r in 12 ip). He attempts to lock up the 4 game sweep of the Gnats today with rookie Jordan Zimmermann opposing him on the mound.



Michael Schwimer:
Not a highly touted prospect, but a name that we might want to familiarize ourselves with. The 6'8" 246 lb. righthander is in his 2nd pro season pitching in relief- 36 g, 61.1 ip, 11 sv, 88 k, 1.76 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, and ZERO homeruns allowed.

Reports have Carpenter already optioned back down with lefty Sergio Escalona being summoned from Reading.

LORENZO said...

And what is the reason, trying to give them all a chance? Is Carrasco coming soon? Should play the NATS everyday, it is a great ego boost for the players. Pat who?

Mike said...

Carrasco could be going to back to AA soon...

The Escalona move looks good, Carpenter needs to start at AAA.

Schwimer is a big dude- 6'8" 246!
At 23, should he be at a higher level than A ball?

Bring Carpenter back because I hate Chan Ho Park.

Aaron said...

i F"ING HATE CHAN HO PARK!!!!!!!

HO OUT !!!!!
HAPP IN!!!!!!!!!

NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dr. Steve said...

Oh My God he is that bad isn't he?

GM-Carson said...

Ho Parkinglot faked us out with the last 2 starts. He's doing his best job at making this game winnable for the hapless Gnats.

By the way, J-Roll sucks at stealing bases this year. What is that, the 4th or 5th time caught already?!

Aaron said...

CHAN BLOW HAD A NICE SPRING TRAINING. IN SPRING YOU FACE MINOR LEAGUE HITTERS AND SPRING IS OVER !!!!!!

BENCH HIM!!!!!!!! HE SUCKS....HE HAS SUCKED FOR DECADE NOW........PULL THE FUCKING TRIGGER PHILLIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dr. Steve said...

Can someone get a nice FAILS picture for Chan Ho? Because... out before the second inning ends is major, epic failure.

Dr. Steve said...

Oh God. They started the game with Chan Ho... and now they're bringing in Lidge.

Marc Zumoff: HOLD ON FANS WE'RE COMING IN FOR A LANDING!!

Dr. Steve said...

Also I have noticed a disturbing trend that NONE of the announcers mentioned the Mendoza Line yet. With so many Phillies below .200, you'd think all the rain going on right now is Harry up in Heaven drooling at the chance to let a Mendoza Line phrase go.

GM-Carson said...

Sweep, sweep, sweep, sweep!

Escalona with the win in his MLB debut. Back-to-back games Phils pitchers pick up 1st MLB win.

Ho Park was horrible today and for the most part has been horrible this season. Time for Happ to the rotation and Chan to bullpen.

FREE JC!!!!!

Just 14 to go baby!!!!
