Last 10 Games

Over the last 10 games, since July 29th, the Phillies have gone 3-7. They scored only 29 (2.9 rpg) and allowed only 39 (3.9 rpg). That's pathetic from a team that's supposed to be an offensive machine. Utley, Victorino, Howard, Werth, and Ibanez were all all-stars, yet they're puttering around scoring less runs than the f'n Padres. I try not to get too upset, because regardless of the past week or so they still hold a 5 game lead on the Marlins, but dammit this lack of hitting irks the poop outta me.

Minors:
*The Short Season Williamsport Crosscutters have some serious pitching with a team ERA of 3.11. What the hell is up with this pink jersey though?

*Joe Savery improved to 2-0 as an Iron Pig and 14-4 on the season.

*Michael Taylor is batting .241/.727 since his promotion to Triple-A. He's typically struggled for the first month at every stop along the way before busting out and completely dominating.

*Kyle Drabek is in a mini-slump, seeing his ERA rise to 3.66 in Reading. The kid still is only 21 years old.

*Domonic Brown is batting .280/.899 since being bumped to Double-A.

*Steve Susdorf was batting .359 at 2 Single-A stops before making his debut at Reading last night going 1-4. Phils outfield of the future is looking promising with Taylor, Brown, and Susdorf.

Moyer:
Following Moyer's distinct alternating pattern of good start/bad start that he began back on June 11th (last 10 starts), it puts him in line for a good start today. Couple that with the fact that he's absolutely owned Florida during his career (13-2, 2.83 ERA, 1.04 WHIP) and the Phils might just salvage the final game of this series. Also, win or lose, this may be Grand Pappy's last start for awhile.

Bad news- JC Romero had his outing cut short after only 10 pitches last night after still experiencing discomfort in his elbow. He may just be done for the season.

I don't think you know what "Bad News" means. Bad News means someone dropped their bat. This is Eagles Training Camp news.

Cole Homols sucks. And the rest of this team is consistently inconsistent.

Gonna watch Moyer live today if they can get the game in.

Bob D said...

Howard now has 3 doubles in the last 2 games.

Rollins now has his BA over 240 after a horrible start.

Durbin is close to returning possibly Tuesday while Condrey is nowhere close to it.

That means Tuesday 1 and possibly 2 pitchers are getting sent down. Likely out of Kendrick, Walker, or Lopez.

The lack of hitting just seems to be a perfect storm of sorts, whereas in the past, individuals would go on slumps to be picked up by other individuals on a hot streak. That said, it is indeed frustrating to watch.

I agree, that even in the worst case scenario (a sweep), it is still a four game lead in the NL East. It seems, though, that those games against the Fish during the last weekend of the season may take on additional meaning.

jamie moyer is done.

Bob D said...

When this team slumps at the plate they really have a slump. But next week they will likely put up a ton of runs.

Moyer should go to the pen as he is now 0-1 with a strikeout at the plate. Martinez is a much better hitter than he.

And now in the 5th inning he cant get anyone else out.

GM-Carson said...

Ugh, still no offense and Jamie still sucks.

Corey said...

even with a HUGE strike zone, and facing the marlins, jamie can't get the job done.

GM-Carson said...

Hate to beat a dead horse, but it's time to remove the old man from the rotation and give Pedro a go.

Aaron said...

We are now in the area of the game where Charlie loses us a lot of games.

Top 6th marlins have a man on first and no outs. If im the manager i pull moyer right now. But charlie will sit on his ass and let him implode

Aaron said...

oh look the next guy gets a base hit....there's a fucking suprise.

Aaron said...

Jaime Moyer should not get anymore starts this year. He has one of the worst era's in the league and the phils have stuck with him all the way to August.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH HE'S DONE STOP PITCHING JAIME MOYER HE'S NOT A GOOD PITCHER ANYMORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Joshua Lattanzi said...

Until today's game, I was not on the 'demote Moyer' bandwagon. Now I am after watching him just give up hit after hit against a team he is *supposed* to dominate.

GM-Carson said...

How the hell is Victorino tossed from the game while playing centerfield? That ump is a f'n tard!

Aaron said...

Great now the umps are dicking us over. die rapowanno....DIE!!!!!

Joshua Lattanzi said...

Lazy and bad umpiring strike again! These guys are the worst umpiring crew in ML Baseball.

GM-Carson said...

It truly does amaze me how this team goes through extremes. They were extremely hot in July, and now they're extremely horrible. This offense should be ashamed of itself.

Aaron said...

MANUAL IS A FUCKING IDIOT SOMETIMES.
HOW THE HELL DO YOU LOPEZ GIVE UP 5 FUCKING RUNS IN RELIEF BEFORE YOU GO TO THE BULLPEN???????!!!!!!!!!!!!

ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME.??? WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR

GM-Carson said...

Manuel probably figured this lame offense wasn't going to score anymore runs today anyway, so go ahead and let Lopez get shelled. That way he's the obvious answer for demotion upon Pedro's return to the bigs.

Aaron said...

That's it......i can't watch this anymore. I'm gonna go break and burn stuff.

Jeremy said...

Can anybody explain to me why that bearded freak is still gets at bats? Seriously is he our best pinch hitting option with a .133 average? I hate that Bako gets starts, Chooch is at least 50 points better at the dish. Why the hell was Lidge brought in the game? There was no save to blow and no loss needed to be picked up, leave the man in the pen for God's sake. What the hell is going on with our offense? I really don't need to suffer through an end of the year collapse, lets go boys get it together.

GM-Carson said...

All warm fuzzy feelings of this team erased!

Brad Lidge sucks. Jamie Moyer sucks. Cole Hamels sucks. Eric Bruntlett doesn't even deserve the title "suck", he's below that, whatever that may be. This team is blowing it!

Bob D said...

Bruntlet with his 131 average is still on this team? We dont have anyone better? How about the bat boy, I'm sure he can get on base better than Brunt.

Thrown out for hand gestures - awesome.

Lopez will be gone, Kendrick possibly too. Moyer to pen. Martinez to rotation.

Lidge always lets up a bunch of runs in non-save situations. his era in save situations is probably decent and not his 7.whatever ERA.

Aaron must be busy breaking and burning things, likely sstarting with Rapuano's hotel room.

ACSmitty79 said...

Major sucky game to see live today. Best part was the crowd getting fired up when Victorino got tossed, and subsequently booing the umps on every.single.pitch.

Zac said...

Dom Brown momentarily stole the show from Pedro's rehab start in Reading last week when he knocked a ball literally out of the park and on to the highway.
