Continued Sadness

Remember when the Phillies had that 6 game winning streak? Yeah, me too, barely. The date was April 28th and the Phils were 11-9 and heading to the West Coast to take on the Dodgers. They lost that evening and have been losing on the regular ever since. They have 3 wins over the last 16 games and have fallen to the 3rd worst record in baseball and are tied for the fewest wins in MLB. The sadness continues...

Nola likely back from the DL on Sunday to start.

Lehigh Valley IronPigs are on an 11 game win streak. Hoskins has been hitting all season and now Cozens are starting to as well.

GM-Carson said...

Why isn't Pat Venditte in the Phillies bullpen? 21 IP with a 0.00 ERA and 0.76 WHIP. C'mon Klentak, pull the trigger.

IronPigs won their 12th straight yesterday.

Phillies are now 3-14 over last 17 games.

Watch out for Quinn he has heated up and is now on a tear, BA at 292.
Crawford also starting to hit more often.

GM-Carson said...

I'm in favor of trading Saunders as soon as someone wants him. Let Altherr, Herrera, and Quinn man the outfield. Kendrick can maybe spot start at LF, 1B, 2B, and maybe 3B when he comes off the DL.

I'm also in favor of calling up Venditte and possibly some others - Milner, Ramos, Beato for bullpen help. I don't care if they lose Luis Garcia or Adam Morgan on waivers.

From a Philadelphia sports perspective, road games against the Rangers take place in Madison Square Garden.

Joely rodriguez sucks

Bob D said...

Wilson Valdez was a better releiver

Bob D said...

Ahh I messed up spell reliever almost as bad as they mess up a 2 run lead

GM-Carson said...

Time to send Joely to AAA for real. He's been given long enough. Can't keep throwing the same shit at the wall and expect it to stick. Gotta try someone else. Venditte has only given up 4 hits in 20.1 IP in AAA. Give him a chance!

Also, this offense is starting to sputter too. Team has gone to hell in a handbasket.

About to be 3-15 over last 18 games.

GM-Carson said...

Andrew Pullin/OF - in 81 games at AA between 2016-2017 he's hit .346/.992, 56 R, 24 DBL, 19 HR, and 61 RBI.

Rhys Hoskins/1B is killing it in AAA - .343/1.139, 29 R, 9 DBL, 2 TRPL, 12 HR, and 35 RBI in 40 games.

AAA is storing some relievers having nice starts to their seasons as well:
Pat Venditte - 13 G, 21 IP, 21 K, 4 H, 0.00 ERA, 0.76 WHIP
Hoby Milner - 12 G, 15.2 IP, 13 K, 0.00 ERA, 0.70 WHIP
Cesar Ramos - 11 G, 24.1 IP, 19 K, 2.22 ERA, 0.82 WHIP
Pedro Beato - 17 G, 19.1 IP, 16 K, 11 SV, 1.86 ERA, 0.98 WHIP

Bob D said...

To add those relievers some one has to be removed from 40 man roster
Luis Garcia
Adam Morgan
Ty Kelly
Brock Stassi
Daniel Nava
Ricardo Pinto

I could only see the top 2 guys on list being cut but if push gets to shove the other 4 could also be on the bubble.

Bob D said...

I think I will make a prediction for next offseason. The Phillies will sign a top relief pitcher such as Wade Davis or Greg Holland. It makes sense

ripjgarcia said...

84 pitches 2 hits 1 walk, but to the bullpen we must go.. puzzled

Carson Book said...

I really don't understand why they extended Mackanin. Do they think he could lead a contender or do they still plan on sucking the next couple of seasons?

Thank you for taking the time to do the research.
