Worley to Whirl Braves into Panic Mode
4-eyed geek rookie Vance Worley gets the ball for the Phillies today. Seriously dude, get some contacts, rec specs went out of style with Chris Sabo (wait, were they ever in style?). Anyway, the Braves need to win to get into the playoffs, but the Phils aren't just going to roll out the Welcome to October mat for them. Besides, Worley has something to prove as he attempts to make a positive impression and possibly pitch himself into the 5th starter slot in the rotation next season (hearing footsteps KK?). That and he wants to become relevant enough to warrant a fan group- Worley's Girlies.
*Jimmy Rollins' grand slam was a nice sight. Hopefully it gives him some confidence at the plate heading into the Divisional Series starting Wednesday.
*Bastardo has not allowed an earned run in his last 7 appearances, spanning 4.2 ip with 11 k's.
*Doc holds a slight lead over Chooch in the team MVP voting (see yesterday's post below for the poll).
