This Bullpen Will Ruin Everything


The Phillies bullpen will ruin everything. Everything.  I don't give two squirts of piss if it's "only been 2 games".  The writing is on the wall, this bullpen is epically ineffective.  The Phils starting pitchers (Hellickson & Nola) have been amazing - 0.69 ERA (3rd), 0.54 WHIP (3rd), and 0 walks allowed (1st).  The shit-a-rific relief corps on the other hand...18.90 ERA (30th) and 3.00 WHIP (30th).  The Phillies farm system is starling, but they haven't been been able to produce relief pitchers, which honestly should be the easiest thing to churn out other than possibly utility infielders.

Exciting News: Japanese ace-in-the-making, Kenta Maeda, made his MLB debut last night and performed The Howard.  He twirled 6 shutout innings, hit a homerun, made an error, and also struck out at the plate.  Congrats!

For what it's worth, I think Hector Neris and Jeanmar Gomez are the best relief pitchers currently on the Phillies staff...not really a ringing endorsement though.

Is that the first ever Major League debut Howard? And by a pitcher at that? Impressive!

GM-Carson said...

I believe it's the first one since The Howard began being tracked back in 2009.

Add Stumpf to list of pitchers with infiniti ERA

GM-Carson said...

Daniel Stumpf did not look like a MLB worthy pitcher this Spring, but the Phils really want to keep him.

Also, I f'n told everyone Charlie Morton sucks and shouldn't even be on this team. The Phillies would be better off with Morgan or Oberholtzer in the rotation.

Russel's turn to create a blow out loss

Bob D said...

1 out of every 3 relievers each day seems to throw a clunker. So when they have 3 relievers or more appear the chance to win is slim.

Ok, this team might lose 120 games
