Phillies Make Me Sad
*Channeling my inner T-Mac...speaking of sucking, J-Roll is killing the team from the 3-hole. His infield pop-up and GIDP performance last night was horrendous. He wanted 5 years. He got 3. He wanted big money. He got big money. We wanted quality. We're missing it- .216/.496 ain't cutting it Jimmy! No fair weather fan here, just someone who expects more.
*What happened to Doc's swing-and-miss stuff? K per 9 IP: 2008- 7.5, 2009- 7.8, 2010- 7.9, 2011- 8.5, 2012- 5.8. BB per 9 IP: 2008- 1.4, 2009- 1.3, 2010- 1.1, 2011- 1.3, 2012- 2.4. Huh?!
*One player that is doing well- Ty Wigginton. In the midst of a 12-game hit streak, he's batting .320/.875 overall. How about starting him at 3rd more often and playing Nix at 1st? Just a thought.
*Bobby Abreu was released by the Angels and they called up uber prospect Mike Trout.
*Ryan Zimmerman was DL'ed by the Nationals and they called up some kid named Bryce Harper. Never heard of him.
