Phillies - Saving the Best for the 2nd Half

The following stats are all from the 2nd half of the season (aka - post All-Star break). If you remember the Phillies teams of yesteryear, before they went on their run of NL East dominance, you'll recall that they played much better in the 2nd half.  Is this foreshadowing or just luck?
Record:
13-3

Batting:
AVG - .289
OBP - .340
SLG - .449
OPS - .789
R - 86 (5.4 per game)
DBL - 35
TRPL - 5
HR - 14
SB -8
BB - 38

Pitching:
ERA - 3.10
WHIP - 1.26
K - 110
BB - 36

So does pitching or hitting win ballgames?

R - 86 (5.4 per game)
(1st half is 3.4 runs per game)

ERA - 3.10
(1st half 4.83)

Andrew said...

although I do enjoy winning games, I sure hope the team doesn't "waste" this "wasted season" and actually win themselves out of the overall draft pick

GM-Carson said...

Quite scientifically, hitting wins ball games. Without scoring runs a game can never be won.

Seriously though, a balance of both is ideal.

If they get one of the top 3 picks or even a top 5 they should be able to pick a quality player. At this point now, there is no one really standing out way above the rest

GM-Carson said...

Catcher, Andrew Knapp, with 2 homeruns for Reading tonight and is now batting .373.

Nick Williams went 4-4, with 2 HR, 1 DBL, 5 R, and 3 RBI too.

Getting excited!

Seems the plan is for Utley to play 3-4 times a week between 2nd and 1st base. Cesar still play 2nd, but also play SS and 3rd to keep him in the lineup and give Galvis and Franco a break.

Hopefully Utley can show he's still able to hit, then be dealt before the August 31st deadline (2nd trade deadline).

The future is bright. Guess we just have to be patient... Could be 2016. Looks likely to definitely be 2017.

Robert Dalton said...

Dom Brown who woke him up? I thought he would be a hands down non tender canidate, but 8f he keeps this up.....

Knapp may be the next full time catcher.

Andrew said...

Ok, Buchanon sucks. Time to move on to one of the other 85 minor league starters we have.

Andrew said...

DeFratus has lost it too

Andrew said...

Hinojosa, on the other hand, could be a big deal...

GM-Carson said...

DeFratus has been bad all season.

I'm not ready to give up on Buchanan yet.
