Happy Easter Phillies Phans


*The Phillies pitching staff has allowed the 2nd fewest runs (68) in the Majors. That's good for a 3.10 ERA and a ginormous slice of the pie why the Phils have a MLB best 14-6 record.

*Ryan Howard has been the main source of RBI the past 2 games, but the man has 2 4-strikeout performances in this series already. Over/Under for today's game set at 3 K's.

*Missing Brad Lidge? You shouldn't be. Jose Contreras (5) and Ryan Madson (2) have been perfect in save opportunities.

*Raul Ibanez has zero hits in his last 18 at bats. Do we see Mayberry R.F.D. in LF today?

*Props to Pete Orr, who is proving to be useful. I love his hustle too. Hustle, as in all out play, not drug dealing.

*I am proud to announce my WSBGMs Phantasy baseball team (Suck My Bocock) leads the league in Howards with 3 (culprits- Gaby Sanchez, Matt Kemp, and Hunter Pence).

*Doc is set for redemption, wanting to quickly erase the bad taste left in his mouth from his last outing. If the Phils score their typical 3 or 4 runs, I'm thinking it's time to bust out the Legion of Broom...

Odd they trot Halladay out there with 113 pitches already, and as you have said, a perfect save record between Contreras and Madson.

I reiterate that statement.

Halladay should have been pulled after 8, but whatever. Win!

Love Tony Bastard's 1 pitch save.

Contreras to the DL, Stutes up.

Good for Stutes.

Bad for Contreras. Sounds like his elbow might be effed.

His arm fell off, its last seen laying in the pile next to Chad Durbins.

Stutes has the stuff to doo very well. Now will Charley give him a chance or does Madson pitch his arm off too.

Bastardo would be a good choice to set up now. Baez allows too many walks/hits along with Herndon. Kendrick maybe the next best after Bastardo.

I really like Bastardo, and not just because he's doing great so far this year. Since turning him into a reliever, I've liked his ability to get the K in big spots and his pitching repertoire.
