Hot or Not

The Phillies recently wrapped up one of their most successful months of July in franchise history, so I thought it would be fun to look back on who was hot and who was not.

Hot:
Shane Victorino- .381/1.011, 22 r, 40 h, 8 dbl, 3 hr, 14 rbi, 5 sb.

Chase Utley- .307/.933, 22 r, 31 h, 4 dbl, 6 hr, 18 rbi, 5 sb.

Jayson Werth- .267/.980, 18 r, 24 h, 5 dbl, 7 hr, 23 rbi, 3 sb.

Jimmy Rollins- .313/.924, 22 r, 36 h, 12 dbl, 4 hr, 19 rbi, 11 sb.

Not:

Carlos Ruiz

Matt Stairs- .063/.536, 1 h.

Paul Bako- .171/.464, 4 r, 7 h, 2 dbl, 4 rbi.

John Mayberry Jr.- .067/.192, 1 h.

Eric Bruntlett- .067/.258, 1 h.

Ryan Madson- 13 gm, 12.1 ip, 10 k, 1-1, 5.11 ERA.

Chad Durbin- 6 gm, 6.2 ip, 8 k, 6.75 ERA.

Brad Lidge- 12 gm, 10.2 ip, 13 k, 0-1, 6 sv, 5.91 ERA.

Average: Raul Ibanez, Pedro Feliz, and Cole Hamels. Clay Condrey and JC Romero didn't pitch enough to be classified. Now if only the bats could heat up and pull through again in the month of August.

Un-Ace:
Cole Hamels gets so much hype, and I'll be honest I fully expect him to notch a 20-win season and vie for a Cy Young someday, but the dude just isn't cutting it this season. Yesterday's craptastic performance was the 8th time this year he's failed to go 6 innings. Also, it was the 8th time this year he's given up 4+ runs. C'mon!

Orlando Cabrera became the first player to commit "The Howard" for two different teams. Earlier in the season he did so with Oakland and yesterday with Minnesota.

Has "The Howard" gotten any media coverage yet? Its about time if it hasn't! Jayson Stark will write about it.

I emailed Stark about it and he never responded.
