Little Good, A Lot Of Bad

Losing 2 games out of the gate to the lowly Cubs is disheartening, especially when you considered the momentum they had rolling into the All-Star break. Now the Phils sit only 5 games above .500 and 5.5 back of the NL East leading Braves. There's been little good to speak of lately, but there is some. Tons of bad though...

Good:
Ryan Howard, Roy Halladay, Cole Hamels, JC Romero, Chad Durbin, and um, what's his name, oh wait, nobody else.

Just OK:
Kyle Kendrick, Jayson Werth & Shane Victorino (both borderline bad, especially Werth who has been spinning his wheels for a month or so now), Wilson Valdez (greatly outperforming expectations), Nelson Figueroa, Brian Schneider, and David Herndon.

Bad:
Joe Blanton, Jamie Moyer, Ryan Madson, Raul Ibanez, Danys Baez, Greg Dobbs, Juan Castro, Jimmy Rollins, Jose Contreras, Brad Lidge, Ross Gload, and Ben Francisco.

Too Hurt To Register:
Carlos Ruiz, Chase Utley, Chad Durbin, and Placido Polanco.

Aaron said...

what the hell are they doing on the bases today?????

oh wait i don't want to hurt shanes fellings......yeah way to go shane we are still behind no matter how bad you play and how stupid you continue to be on the bases.

Aaron said...

can someone plese teach our pitching staff how to bunt.

ripjgarcia said...

Things like Hamels bunting with 2 strikes irk me.

Corey said...

count me in on the "bunting with two strikes is stupid" group.

i also would like to congratulate shane on his hustle to try to stretch a grounder to short into a double only to be thrown out by a county mile. great hustle. complete stupidity and shit baserunning. but yeah! for the hustle. yeah!

and Ol' Girl Parts is pitching a dandy.

and trade werth now.

GM-Carson said...

Hamels with another strong outing.

Vic and Ibanez were just retarded on the base paths today. Horrendous play.

ripjgarcia said...

Speaking of Shane. I'm all warm and bubbly that Schneider (and I don't know how) didn't get thrown out at the plate, but that at-bat by Victorino was pathetic.

GM-Carson said...

Garcia- wanna meet up with the GMs some night in Harrisburg for some drinks and a game at a bar?

GM-Carson said...

Not getting the W today for Cole does make him unlucky on this day because he pitched a damn fine game.

Aaron said...

welcome back polly!!

ripjgarcia said...

Yeah I'm down with that.. I don't drink, so I guess I'm a vag, but I still hang out at bars.. lemme know. I have absolutely nothing to do with my time.

GM-Carson said...

Garcia- you don't have to drink to be cool with us. You're not a vag, that's reserved for Ryan Madson.

Bloodstripes said...

Another late inning win. At least the big vag's keep trying. Good patience against Marmol. After the last few days you wouldn't think much of their form but the Phils are 5 from the last 7.

SirAlden said...

Hamels has gone seven or more innings in seven of his last eight starts, delivering an impressive 2.96 ERA and 49:18 K:BB ratio during that span (54.2 innings).

GM-Carson said...

And I have accordingly praised Hamels.

Now the Phils sit only 5 Testking 350-030 games above .500 and 5.5 back of the NL East leading Testking 642-812 Braves. There's been little good to speak of Testking CISSP lately, but there is some.

I totally understand Amaro not overpaying in prospects for an infielder or a average starter. But the one card he can play is Brown..and he's still sitting on it.beautiful perfume
