Pathetic

Half the lineup is utterly useless and half the starting rotation has crapped the bed. Series tied at 2-2, but damn it's been ugly.

AVG/OPS
Howard .133/.509
Victorino .250/.500
Polanco .125/.250
Ruiz .071/.204

Cliff Lee and Roy Oswalt each with a 7.50 ERA.

This series has been as fun as the Giants series last year. I enjoyed game 1 and that was it.

I don't think we lose this series but if we do...i may have to do the unthinkable and step away from Phils baseball for awhile, till everyone's gone.

There are just as many positives, though, that you're skipping over. Like even beyond the other half of the lineup that's pulling their load, you have Rollins who's been outstanding and Utley almost as good. And the other two starting pitchers have owned. It would be disastrous to lose this series but not everything suggests that will happen, with Doc coming back out tomorrow.

Randy said...

Ryan Howard...the new Mr April? A bit harsh, but I am looking for the alternative, now two postseasons and counting.

GM-Carson said...

Rollins and Utley are the only 2 in the lineup doing well. Pence and Ibanez are so-so right now. Not good, but not sucky either.

This will be the most disappointed in the Phillies team I've ever been in my life if they lose this series.

But don't worry, we can blame it on bad luck according to the statistical overlords.

Randy said...

So, you think that was the last game Oswalt throws in a Phils uniform?

Corey said...

no. the phils will win tomorrow and oswalt will throw game in the nlcs. charlie won't change to worley.

GM-Carson said...

Confidence meter of a win tomorrow?

Mine is low.

I was at home watching the last 3 innings with my wife and I was able to predict how each of the Phils batters would get out with the exception of Ross Choad. The offense with the exception of J-Roll and Chuts has been horrible.

I was happy that Franny hit that dinger but I am horribly concerned at the systemic problem with the rest of the line up.

Vic seems to have forgotten how to do anything other than roll meek grounders to the right side. Poly looks old and tired. Chooch has smoked some balls but has produced at all. Howard looks so out of it.

I think I could strike Howard out right now.

GM-Carson said...

Jeremey- if you're lefthanded, I guarantee you'd strike Howard out. Big reason he's completely overrated.

What now Sir Alden?!

Corey said...

RBIs!!!!

as a phillies fans, i think there is no way they win.

if i was somebody else, i say 65% of a phillies win.

Aaron said...

Deep breath everybody. The Cards came in red hot....did anybody really expect we would just blow the cards away? We are at home with doc on the mound. I am generally as pessimistic as they come with the Phillies, but I'm telling you there is no damn way Doc loses this game.

GM-Carson said...

Unless Doc is hitting some homeruns, he could easily lose this game.

Corey said...

doc's playoff batting average is better than most of the starters...
