The Philadelphia Phillies have a decent bench going into the playoffs

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, The Playoffs by chinmusic on Wednesday 7 October 2009 at 9:40 am

The Phillies have three really solid pinch hitters coming into the playoffs. None of these guys will likely start any games in the post season unless there are injuries to the regulars. 1B/3B Greg Dobbs has been a solid player since coming to the Phillies a few years ago. He played in 97 games for the Phillies this season and he was 38 for 154 (.247 avg, .646 OPS) with 15 runs scored, 5 homers and 20 RBIs. Dobbs has played in 11 games in his post season career and he is 7 for 17 (.412 avg, .971 OPS) with 2 runs scored. Ancient Matt Stairs gives the Phillies another solid lefty bat off the bench along with Dobbs. He played in 99 games for the Phillies this year and he was 20 for 103 (.194 avg, .736 OPS) with 15 runs scored, 5 homers and 17 RBIs. Stairs has played in 8 games in his post season career and he is 2 for 14 (.143 avg, with 1 run scored, 1 homer and 2 RBIs. Outfielder Ben Francisco came over with Cliff Lee from the Indians and he did a solid job for the Phillies. He played in 37 games for the Phillies and he was 27 for 97 (.278 avg, .843 OPS) with 10 runs scored, 5 homers and 13 RBIs. He doesn’t have any post season experience. Veteran infielder Miguel Cairo won the utility infielder role for the Phillies in the post season. He played in 27 games for the Phillies this season and he was 12 for 45 (.267 avg, .705 OPS) with 6 runs scored, 1 homer and 2 RBIs. Cairo also has 19 games of post season experience in which he is 20 for 61 (.328 avg, .873 OPS) with 11 runs scored, 1 homer, 6 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. Paul Bako will be the backup catcher. He played in 44 games for the Phillies this season and he is 26 for 116 (.224 avg, .644 OPS) with 12 runs scored, 3 homers and 9 RBIs. Bako has played in 17 games in his post season career and he is 6 for 31 (.194 avg, .641 OPS) with 5 runs scored, 1 homer and 5 RBIs.
