America's Hat Bats:
R - 147 (7th)
AVG - .254 (12th)
OPS - .748 (6th)
Jose Bautisa/RF is back with authority (.294/1.054 with 9 HR) and so is Melky Cabrera/LF (.336/.924). The rest of the lineup, aside from Dioneer Navaro/C (.309 AVG) is struggling, but they still are dangerous with the long ball (Colby Rasmus/CF 7 HR, Brett Lawrie/3B 6 HR). Scoring runs is not this team's problem.
America's Hat Arms:
ERA - 4.65 (26th)
WHIP - 1.46 (27th)
Pitching is this team's problem. Dickey is far removed from his Cy Young season (5.01/1.48) and Happ (4.15/1.85) doesn't really have the magic working for him that he did when he was with the Phils. However, Buehrle remains a wizard (2.25/1.25), on his way to a 14th straight 200+ IP season. The youngster Hutchison (3.82/1.27, 38 K in 33 IP) is performing well too. The bullpen is a mess and they have no established closer.
Series split, with each team taking one in each city. Lots of runs scored, with both teams' bullpen showcasing their atrocities.
*Little known fact, the Phillies were once known as the Blue Jays from 1943-1949.
