I'm not sure what the hell the question was, but Greg Gross is the answer. Since he usurped batting coach duties from Milt Thompson, the Phillies are a perfect 8-0. During that time the bats have come alive- 46 runs (5.75 per game) and are batting .319 (87-273). Dude is a hitting guru!
*Last November we featured Greg Gross in a Phillies Phlashback Phriday.
*While perusing the players' stats I noticed a handful of Phillies batters have walked more this season than struck out (Ruiz 35:28, Utley 40:37, and Rollins 23:19 BB/K).
*In case you've just woken up from a coma or your dominatrix finally gave you a break from the Love Dungeon, Roy Oswalt makes his Phillies debut tonight in Washington. Fabulous t-shirt courtesy of The Fightins/Birdland.
*Some "extra" stats for Roy Oswalt: 4-0, 3.66 ERA, 1.44 WHIP in 8 in the playoffs, and .158 batting average during his career.
*The Phillies have 16 players under contract next season for $145 million. Lidge, Howard, Utley, Rollins, Oswalt, Hamels, Ibanez, Blanton, Polanco and Victorino will be making the big bucks.
*Worth mentioning- Charlie Manuel won his 500th game as the Phillies skipper earlier this weak.
