Phillies- Best in the Land

Best in the Land:
Best record and pitching staff in the Majors belongs to the Phillies. Cole Hamels notched his 12th win and the Phils 62nd of the season in a dominating performance over the Padres last night. Allowing only 1 run dropped the team ERA to a MLB-best 3.10. They're also winning at a .633 clip, which puts them in line for approximately 103 wins. Just imagine if Oswalt comes back healthy, Lidge is able to be serviceable, and they trade for a bat. Times are good...

Howard Since All-Star Break:
2-25 (.080), .259 OPS, 2 R, 2 RBI, 3 BB, 9 K.

Good news for Howard, he still leads the NL in RBI with 74. Bad news for Howard, he is 0-8 lifetime against tonight's starting pitcher Mat Latos, and all 8 outs have come via strikeout. Yuck. Maybe try Gload at 1st base tonight?

Bye Bye Baez:
Please allow me to be blunt- Baez Sucks sucked! Brad Lidge hasn't thrown a single pitch for the Phillies this season and he's already made a huge contribution...ridding the team of Danys Baez. In 2 seasons with Philly, Baez was 5-8 in 80 games pitching 83.2 innings, with a 5.81 ERA, 1.60 WHIP, and poor 36:46 BB:K ratio. Don't let the door hit ya where the good lord split ya!

Yumm.

Mets are Crazy if they think they are getting any significant player who is ML ready. Minor of the Braves maybe. They could get one of the Phils 11-30 Minor Leaguers with promise I believe.

I really doubt that the Phils will make any trade that involves Brown or Worley.

Rando said...

That ball's outt here! And another one! Except they were hit by Padres! Fuckin Krispie Kreme.

Aaron said...

Kk on to pitch the 6th... And boom goes the dynamite.

GM-Carson said...

Huge homers for the Phils! Loved seeing Howard go deep pinch hitting. Needed that. Hell, Martinez even joined the party. Utley with 2 jacks today. Win this game!

GM-Carson said...

What the hell is wrong with Stutes and Bastardo today?

Aaron said...

Well I am officially admitting that Michael Martinez is not useless.

Maybe the heat got to Stutes and Bastardo, even they have clunkers at times. M&M can't bunt but he does hit HRs

Jack said...

I'm still not convinced about M&M...granted he hit another homer against good pitching staff--the Padres--but it was in our bandbox and on the hottest day EVER in Phillyl

Jack said...

by the way the braves have to be pretty disheartened to be so far over .500 and yet still 6 games out.
