Random Off-Day Picture



So what is the point with this picture? Nothing. I just think it's funny and there really isn't much else to talk about until the playoffs start. Except:

- Polanco got another cortisone shot in the elbow. Polanco's problem is he's getting shots of the wrong steroid. When Barry Bonds had a sore elbow, he didn't get cortisone shots. He wrapped a giant arm-pad on and got a few shots of Winstrol or testosterone. Allegedly...

- Is everyone ready for another Vance Worley start on Sunday?

- Who would you rather have the Phillies play in the first round, Cincy or San Diego? Talk amongst yourselves.

- Jimmy Rollins owns part of a Justin Bieber song. Follow the link to listen to the song if you like the sound of a teenage lesbian boy singing nursery rhymes to girls he obviously has not interest in. That just happens to be my favorite genre...

I'd rather face Cincy. Starting pitching and bullpen not nearly as good as San Diego's.

I'm hyped for Worley's start on Sunday. I think a bunch of female hotties should form a new fan group for Vance- Worley's Girlies.

I agree with Cincy, though the Phils don't have much success against Cueto.

Bad:

Gregg Dobbs got 2 hits last night.

Potentially bad:

Continuing to rest starters in the batting lineup. We all know hitting is about timing and rhythm. Not looking to spoil what have been some fairly good bats in September.

Dobbs getting hits is scary, because Charlie may just want to put him on the postseason roster and heaven forbid give him an at bat.

My postseason roster:

Lineup:
1. Victorino
2. Polanco
3. Utley
4. Howard
5. Werth
6. Ibanez
7. Rollins
8. Ruiz

Bench:
Schneider, Valdez, Gload, Sweeney, Brown, and Francisco. Brown over Dobbs and Mayberry because of defense/speed/power combo.

Starting Pitchers:
1. Halladay
2. Oswalt
3. Hamels
4. Blanton

Bullpen:
Lidge, Madson, Durbin, Contreras, Romero, Bastardo, and Question Mark.

Question Mark- Kendrick, Worley, Baez, or Herndon. KK and Worley could serve as longmen, and so could Herndon to an extent. Baez sucks! Really, none of these guys should see the actual mound even if they do make the roster.

With Halliday, Oswalt, and Hamels what are the chances of even needing a long man? Yeah I didn't think so. Blanton will likely get a start in NLCS and another in WS, so maybe an outside chance then. Now with that thinking I figure the bullpen will need to pitch about 3 innings in the NLDS: Romero .1, Durbin .2, Madson and Lidge 1 each.

Preserve Jon said...

You want Blanton there in case disaster strikes - I'll not describe further to avoid the black cat - for damage control.

I'd rather see KK in the long man roll than any of the other options. Tomorrow night's game may go a long way in determining whether or not he makes the roster in the first round.

Of course, you could use KK's roster spot on another bat for the bench. I'd pick Brown for that spot. If disaster does strike and Blanton is the long man, you can add KK to replace the injured pitcher.

Otherwise, in the event KK makes the roster... I like Brown's future, but I give John - still can't hit a breaking ball - Mayberry the slightest of edges due to his experience. JM in DB out.

Dobbs remains out on my roster, but you know Manuel will find a place for him.

Rather have San Diego and their punchless offense. Cincy has some
Wild Swingers and Votto who can
scare you with random bursts of HR's
like Toronto.

Looks like it will be the Phillies Hosting the Reds in the first round,
unless Atlanta is Swept and San Diego sneeks in.
