Another 1 run scored and only 5 hits, game today for the Phils, oh and 7 runs allowed. They suck!

Bob D said...

This offense will score 7 to 9 runs

each week or is it weak?

Beer-a-Thon said...

Pretty sure Jeanmar Gomez has pitched himself into a swingman/longman role in the bullpen.

He was a decent minor league signing.

Appears Herrera will be starting CF and Revere LF. They're kinda identical to me. Good average, no power, good speed, don't draw walks.

Bob D said...

And can't catch at times

Now to straighten out the outfield mess

Beer-a-Thon said...

Sizemore has been horrendous this Spring. In all honesty, was only average last season. I guess this means Ruf in RF until Brown is healthy?

Bob D said...

I would pick Bugosevic over Sizemore right now. Francouer also would be good to keep

GM-Carson said...

When Wandy Rodriguez goes out and has a decent season, just remember he could have easily been in the Phillies rotation, but they released him from his minor league contract due to concerns about his physical. Yet, he seems to be doing fine this Spring with the Braves

GM-Carson said...

Think Kevin Slowey just pitched himself outta bullpen or rotation gig- 2.1 IP, 8 R, 3 HR. Ouch!

Philles offense still not clicking. Pitchers have been getting worse, at a time when fine tuning is supposed to be happening, and defense has become extra sloppy.

100+ losses here we come!
