Two-Headed Creature Double Feature

Yeah for double headers! Hamels goes first and Cloyd follows. 

Boo to Charlie Manuel for continuing to play Michael Martinez.  That sack of suck is at 3rd base yet again in Game 1 (hopefully Pete Orr or Ty Wiggy gets Game 2).  Part of the reason is Keven Frandsen has a stress fracture in his fibula and Polly is on the DL, but the other part of the reason is because Uncle Cholly is dumb.

Thanks to Raul Valdes for a nice season on a minor league deal.  The journey man left-hander's year is now over, as he needs surgery on his knee.  Hopefully Amaro retains his services for next season as Triple-A insurance.  Valdes 2012- 27 G, 31 IP, 35 K, 2.90 ERA, 0.74 WHIP.

Root for the Reading Phillies to come back from their 1-2 deficit against the Trenton Thunder in the first round of the Double-A playoffs.  Of course, the sooner they're eliminated, the sooner Darin Ruf can presumably join the Phils.

Think about sending Juan Pierre to the Orioles.  Why?  They just lost their leadoff hitter, Nick Markakis, for 6 weeks, and Pierre has already has passed through waivers.  Give Pierre a few weeks in a playoff hunt and maybe the O's send us something of use in return.

I think a platoon of Mayberry and Nix would work next year. Whether if be in RF, CF, or LF.

Not sure about Dom Brown. He just doesn't seem to be worthy a full-time gig.

I'm backing down on the Michael Bourn front. He's going to be very expensive and is already 30. How about Angel Pagan for 3 YR/$24M?

GM-Carson said...

Things will get ugly in Philly if the Eagles play this bad all season, coupled with the Phils sucking. Yikes.

GM-Carson said...

Game 1 done. Nice hit Mayberry. Having himself a heckuva second half.

Now, go get Game 2.

GM-Carson said...

Some late game heroics coming from the Eagles too?

Brew Crew ties with 2 out in the 9th!
Come on Brewers!!

Bob D said...

Brewers lost :(

Pierre for a few million, not great at defense- but not a liability. Has great OB% and can hit singles doubles & triples. He can steal bases. Bourne only has better defense over Pierre.

If you are going to spend $80-100 million on a Michael Bourne, why not add a few more and bring in Hamilton instead? great glove, defense, and much better offense. Gives you that big power bat the lineup needs. Put him in CF let Mayberry, Nix, Brown, Pierre, Ruf battle for corner OF spots and bench.

GM-Carson said...

I'm actually against signing Bourn now. Go look at this stats, and he's not going to give you the biggest bang for your buck if he gets the size deal people are expecting.

Angel Pagan is a very similar player, but he'll come much cheaper.

Pierre on another 1 year deal with low salary wouldn't be the worst thing either.

GM-Carson said...

It's official, Darin Ruf is being called up and will be with the Phillies on Monday.

Chase Trillo said...

Hopefully Ruf gets a fair shot. Hopefully Fransden is back at third too (even with Martinez's 2 hits in the second game, he is still terrible at .149 on the season). Time to do some damage vs. Miami and Houston.

Bob D said...

Woo Hoo! Bring Ruf in let see if he can hit ML pitching.

GM-Carson said...

I would love the Phils to take 8, 9, or 10 out of 10 from the Astros, Mets, and Marlins. Make things interesting.

Bob D said...

6 out 23 to play

probably can only afford to lose 2 or 3 games rest of way
