Philadelphia Phillies (39-51) @ Los Angeles Dodgers (48-42)
Monday 10:10, Please Go Joe vs. Nate Eovaldi
Tuesday 10:10, Return of Halladay vs. Undecided
Wednesday 3:10, Unlucky Lee vs. Clayton Kershaw
R - 342 (27th)
AVG - .249 (19th)
OPS - .684 (26th)
They started the season setting the world on fire, but the have cooled off since. Andre Ethier and Matt Kemp are both back and healthy, so that will help (help them, not the Phils).
The Get-Out-The-Ways Pitching:
ERA - 3.30 (2nd)
WHIP - 1.25 (6th)
BAA - .236 (2nd)
Kershaw is awesome, their bullpen is solid, and this "Undecided" guy pitching on Tuesday has a helluva knuckle-curve.
Their Michael Martinez:
Juan Uribe doesn't belong on a MLB roster, but because he's currently in the middle of a foolish 3 yr/$21M contract he continues to play. His .193/.525 batting line suggests otherwise, but just like Mini-Mart who remained on the 25-man roster all of 2011 (due to Rule 5 status), Uribe continues to do so for the Dodgers.
Their Danys Baez:
Rookie Shawn Tolleson is not making a good impression- 5.68 ERA and 1.89 WHIP over 8 appearances. However, that's about that same shit stats that half the Phillies relievers post.
AleSmith- Speedway Stout. A huge Imperial Stout that weighs in at an impressive 12% ABV. With added pounds of coffee for a little extra kick. Jet Black, with an off-white head. Starts with a strong coffee and dark
chocolate sensation, then fades to a multitude of toasty, roasty and
caramel malt flavors. Clean and crisp, full-bodied. Warmth from the
high alcohol content lightens up the feel.
Phils win 1 in Doc's comeback. Hamels decides to bypass the offseason free agency fever and trade himself to the Dodgers and sign an extension with them in the process.
