*Quick Cincinnati Reds series preview: the Phillies will run out 3 starting pitchers with a combined 4 wins this season, while the Reds counter with 3 guys who collectively have 18 wins. 'nuff said.
*The Phillies now have the 3rd highest payroll, but 4th worst record in all of baseball. Only the Cubs, Rays, and Diamondbacks suck more.
*Kyle Kendrick has 1 win in his last 19 starts. Um, wow. Futility?
*John Mayberry is quietly putting up good numbers as a 4th outfielder (36 G, .255/.905). Trade chip?
