Bad Bullpen

Jonathan Papelbon - 11 G, 11 IP, 11 K, 9 SV, 0.82 ERA and WHIP.  Awesome.

The Rest - 2 W, 5 L, 54.1 IP, 39K, 4 BLSV, 4.97 ERA, 1.55 WHIP.  Bad bullpen.

A bad bullpen and Charlie Manuel's bullpen management are a recipe for a season without playoffs.  I am not saying that will be the outcome for the Phillies in 2012, just a bit of foreshadowing...

Great effort today fellas. 7 runs allowed, 1 run scored. This team stinks. Really, they just don't look good. Pitching doesn't seem so great anymore. Bullpen is shot. Offense blows.

This team got bad in a hurry.

Last place and 1.5 games out of a playoff spot. Gotta love the new playoff system.
