Phillies AVG & OPS Leader: J-Roll?
Even the lowly Astros (worst record in baseball) have Jose Altuve leading their squad (.302/.773). The offensive starved A's have Coco Crisp batting .251 and Josh Reddick with a .797 OPS. Hell, the Padres and Mariners, they of spacious home parks, have better leaders. Basically, the Phils have the worst AVG/OPS team leader stats in all of MLB. Sad.
*KK has strung together 3 very well pitched starts in a row (3 W, 21.2 IP, 16 K, 0.83 ERA, and a 0.69 WHIP). I'm not sure how he does it, but he does have value.
*Roy Halladay has 195 career wins. Counting today, he'll make 7-8 more starts this season. It would be awesome to see him notch #200 before April of 2013.
*The Phillies are in 3rd place in the NL East. Doesn't count for crap, but it makes some fans feel better. They're 10.5 out of the Wild Card. I think there's a better chance to Hitler being reincarnated and elected President of the United States before the Phils make the playoffs this season, but hey, that's just me
