Don't Call It A Comeback
They've been here all year...
...except they haven't seen first place since May. But all that can change tonight. With a win against the Fish and another Braves loss the Fightins will take back their rightful place atop the NL East.
Now, there are some things going against this reclamation project. First, the Braves are not likely to lose again to the lowly Pirates. Second, Ladies Love Cool Joe is pitching for the Phils. Hopefully he can rebound from his 4 inning, 10 hit abomination last outing.
Vance Worley > Kyle Kendrick
I'm done watching Kyle Kendrick. He's been really bad recently, to the tune of 2-4 and a 7.04 ERA in his last six starts. His next scheduled start is Saturday against the Mets. I say give that start to young Vance and hope for some "flash in the pan" success.
Werth to Boras
Werth is dropping his agent, Jeff Borris, and is close to signing with Scott Boras. It's not news to anyone that Werth is looking to cash in on his recent success and will be leaving the Phillies, but hiring a guy like Scott Boras just makes it official. And I'm perfectly fine with it. I'd like to see Werth stay but I can't hate on somebody trying to make money. I just hope he has a horrible 2011 season...
