Blogged under Awards,Bloglockers,Front Page,General by chinmusic on Monday 14 November 2011 at 7:00 pm

24-year old righty starting pitcher Vance Worley finished in 3rd place in the voting for the N.L. Rookie of the Year. He pitched in 25 games (21 starts) for the Phillies last year and he was 11-3 with a 3.01 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP. Worley has now pitched in 30 games (23 starts) in his first two years with the Phillies and he is 12-4 with a 2.86 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP. Worley was a lifesaver for the Phillies last season when Roy Oswalt when down to injury. He will likely have the inside track to the #5 spot in the rotation next spring for the Phillies.

31-year old righty swinging catcher Carlos Ruiz finished in a tie for 17th in the voting for the N.L. MVP Award with 2B Dan Uggla of the Marlins and starting pitcher Adam Wainwright of the Cardinals. Ruiz played in 121 games for the Phillies last season and he was 112 of 371 (.302 avg, .847 OPS) with 43 runs scored, 8 homers and 53 RBIs. He has now played in 487 games in his first five years with the Phillies and he is 379 of 1,456 (.260 avg, .749 OPS) with 169 runs scored, 30 homers, 191 RBIs and 10 stolen bases. Ruiz’ hitting is starting to catch up with his defense which should be scary for the rest of the N.L.

Blogged under Awards,Bloglockers,Front Page,General by chinmusic on Tuesday 23 November 2010 at 4:22 pm

33-year old righty starting pitcher Roy Oswalt finished sixth in the voting for the N.L. Cy Young Award. Oswalt pitched in 33 games (32 starts) for the Phillies & Astros last season and he was 13-13 with a 2.76 ERA and a 1.03 WHIP. He has now pitched in 316 games (303 starts) in his 10 years in the majors and he is 150-83 with a 3.18 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP. The Phillies made a great move in picking up Oswalt and I expect him to have a huge 2011 for them.

Blogged under Awards,Bloglockers,Front Page,General by chinmusic on Tuesday 23 November 2010 at 4:19 pm

33-year old righty starting pitcher Roy Halladay has won the 2010 National League Cy Young Award. Halladay started 33 games for the Phillies during the regular season and he was 21-10 with a 2.44 ERA and a 1.04 WHIP. He was a horse for the Phillies as he tossed 9 complete games and he had 4 shutouts. He worked 250 2/3 innings during the regular season and he only walked 30 batters while whiffing 219 as he came right after hitters in 2010. His great work continued into the post-season when he started 3 games and was 2-1 with a 2.45 ERA and a 0.77 WHIP. He even tossed a no-hitter against the Reds in the first round of the playoffs! Halladay has now pitched in 346 games (320 starts) in his 13 years in the majors and he is 169-86 with 1 save, a 3.32 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP. Halladay has proved to be everything the Phillies thought he would be….and a little more.

UPDATE: (12/2/2010) – Roy Halladay also finished in 6th place in the N.L. MVP Award voting.

Blogged under Awards,Bloglockers,Front Page,General by chinmusic on Tuesday 23 November 2010 at 10:52 am

Charlie Manuel finished in 5th place in the voting for the N.L. Manager of the Year Award. He led the Phillies to a 97-65 record (55.2%) during the regular season and the Phillies were 5-4 (55.6%) during the post season. Manuel has now compiled a 764-619 (55.2%) record in his 9 years during the regular season and he is 27-19 (58.7%) during the post season. Manuel led the Phillies to a World Series Championship in 2008. I look for Manuel to keep the Phillies rolling in 2011.

2B Chase Utley was voted in by the fans to start the All-Star Game but he will have to miss it due to injury. Utley has played in 72 games this season for the Phillies and he was 73 of 264 (.277 avg, .849 OPS) with 49 runs scored, 11 homers, 37 RBIs and 5 stolen bases. He will be replaced in the starting lineup by Martin Prado of the Braves. This was the fifth time Utley was selected to play in the All-Star Game in his career. 1B Ryan Howard was picked as a reserve for the N.L. Howard has played in 80 games this season for the Phillies and he is 93 of 317 (.293 avg, .850 OPS) with 52 runs scored, 15 homers and 59 RBIs. This will be Howard’s third appearance in the mid-summer classic. Roy Halladay has made the pitching staff for the N.L. He has pitched in 17 games (all starts) for the Phillies this year and he is 9-7 with a 2.42 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP. Halladay has only walked 17 batters in 130 innings this season as he has been very aggressive in the strike zone. This will be Halladay’s 7th All-Star Game of his career.

29-year old switch-hitting CF Shane Victorino tied for 18th with Tim Lincecum in the voting for the N.L. MVP Voting. He played in 156 games for the Phillies last season and he was 181 for 620 (.292 avg, .803 OPS) with 102 runs scored, 10 homers, 62 RBIs and 25 stolen bases.

Victorino is like the Energizer Bunny at the top of the lineup for the Phillies and he should continue to be a good player for at least the next few years.
