The regular season is over. How did our beloved Phils fair in the season's final month? Check below...
#/# = AVG/OPS
Carlos Ruiz/C .301/.750, 10 R, 10 RBI. Chooch is ready for the playoffs. Grade: A.
Ryan Howard/1B .290/.938, 10 R, 4 HR, 13 RBI. If not for an ankle injury, The Big Piece would have likely put up even bigger numbers. Grade: A.
Chase Utley/2B .205/.632, 9 R, 4 RBI. Utley did his typical late season swoon and looked tired. Grade: D.
Placido Polanco/3B .280/.693, 8 R, 9 RBI. Polly is weak, really weak. He only had 19 extra base hits the entire season. Grade: C.
Jimmy Rollins/SS .270/.686, 8 R, 5 RBI, 2 SB. This man is seeking a 5 year contract. C'mon. Grade: C.
Raul Ibanez/LF .258/.712, 10 R, 6 DBL, 3 HR, 17 RBI. The old man managed to bang in 84 RBI this season, so he's not completely done. Grade: B.
Shane Victorino/CF .186/.577, 14 R, 9 XBH, 8 RBI, 2 SB. Quite possibly the worst month of his career. Started the month batting .305, ended with .279. Grade: F.
Hunter Pence/RF .314/.871, 16 R, 8 DBL, 2 TRPL, 4 HR, 18 RBI. Imagining the offense without him is a scary thing. Grade: A+.
John Mayberry/OF/1B .305/.891, 10 R, 3 HR, 8 RBI, 2 SB. Mayberry starting RF in 2012? Grade: A.
Wilson Valdez/UTL .289/.720, 7 R, 4 RBI. Why is Michael Martinez allowed to get as many at bats as Valdez? Grade: B.
Michael Martinez/UTL .136/.510, 5 R, 3 RBI. He sucks! Grade: F.
Ross Gload/PH .321/.773. Good month, bad season. Grade: B+.
Brian Schneider/C .192/.442. Pretty much worthless. Grade: F.
Pete Orr/UTL .200/.450. He's Canadians, that's about the only cool thing about this guy. Grade: F.
John Bowker/PH 0-13 with 7 K. Shittiest of the shitty. Grade: GTFO.
#/# = ERA/WHIP & #:# = BB:K
Roy Halladay 3-1, 37 IP, 10:29, 1.70/1.05. Still the man. Grade: A+.
Cliff Lee 2-1, 38 IP, 2:40, 1.42/0.89. Worth the contract. Which means he's worth a lot. Grade: A+.
Cole Hamels 1-2, 38 IP, 9:32, 3.79/1.08, with 9 homeruns allowed. Not an encouraging month from the young lefty. Homers kill in the postseason. Grade: C-.
Roy Oswalt 3-2, 41 IP, 10:31, 3.51/1.17. If he gives the Phils 6-7 innings of 2-3 run ball in the playoffs, then we should all be ecstatic. Grade: B.
Vance Worley 2-2, 33.1 IP, 14:36, 4.05/1.56. There should be no debate the Oswalt belongs in the playoff rotation over The Vanimal. He was a good story all year long, but came back down to Earth this last month. Grade: C.
Kyle Kendrick 1-0, 13.1 IP, 0:12, 2.70/0.83. Definitely the team's most undervalued member. Grade: A.
Ryan Madson 13 G, 13 IP, 7 SV, 2:13, 0.00/1.08. Has not allowed a run since that 6 run blown save debacle on August 19th. Grade: A+.
Brad Lidge 12 G, 9.1 IP, 5 HLD, 4:11, 0.96/1.39. Still scares the shit outta us, but we can't deny his ability to make someone whiff. Grade: A.
Antonio Bastardo 10 G, 7.1 IP, 3 HLD, 7:8, 11.05/2.18. I miss the good Tony Bastard. Grade: F.
Michael Stutes 10 G, 12 IP, 5 HLD, 6:11, 3.00/1.25. Solid bounce back month from the rookie that will likely pitch some big innings in October. Grade: B.
David Herndon 9 G, 12.1 IP, 14:8, 2.92/1.95. If the Phils would have lost last night, that would have marked 11 straights appearances by Herndon that ended with an L. His ERA is good, but that walk/strikeout ratio is horrible. Grade:D+.
Michael Schwimer 9 G, 9.1 IP, 5:11, 5.79/1.71. Hoping he shows more next year. Grade: D.
Joe Blanton 5 G, 7 IP, 0:11, 2.57/1.00. Originally I thought it was a crazy idea to have Blanton in the postseason bullpen, but now I'm not so sure. No walks with more than a K per inning. Sounds like a good relief pitcher to me. Grade: A.
Not Receiving Grades: Erik Kratz, Brandon Moss, Joe Savery, Domonic Brown, and Justin De Fratus.
