John Mayberry has been a disappointment so far this year for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,In Need of a Slumpbuster by chinmusic on Tuesday 24 April 2012 at 10:36 am

28-year old righty swinging OF/1B John Mayberry had a breakout year for the Phillies in 2011. He played in 104 games for the Phillies last year and he was 73 of 267 (.273 avg, .854 OPS) with 37 runs scored, 15 homers, 49 RBIs and 8 stolen bases. The Phillies had high hopes for Mayberry in 2012. Mayberry has played in 17 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 9 for 44 (.205 avg, .455 OPS) with 0 runs scored, 0 homers and 2 RBIs. He has been completely lost at the plate so far this year as he has whiffed 14 times without walking. The Phillies better hope that Mayberry gets into gear because the offense has been horrible so far this year.

The Philadelphia Phillies need Michael Martinez to pick it up with the bat

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,In Need of a Slumpbuster by chinmusic on Monday 22 August 2011 at 11:00 am

The Phillies took 28-year old righty swinging infielder Michael Martinez over the winter in the Rule 5 Draft away from the division rival Washington Nationals. They didn’t expect him to play much for them in 2011, but injuries have dictated otherwise. Martinez has played in 66 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 33 for 155 (.213 avg, .550 OPS) with 19 runs scored, 2 homers, 20 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. The Phillies really need Martinez to start hitting better if they are going to continue giving him P.T. going forward.

The Philadelphia Phillies need Ben Francisco to step up

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,In Need of a Slumpbuster by chinmusic on Friday 8 July 2011 at 1:18 pm

With Shane Victorino on the D.L., the Phillies are likely going to turn to 29-year old righty swinging Ben Francisco in CF until he’s ready to return to action. Francisco has played in 71 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 46 for 199 (.231 avg, .712 OPS) with 21 runs scored, 6 homers, 31 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. The Phillies really need Francisco to step up both offensively and defensively as Victorino is the only outfielder on the team having a good year.

Ben Francisco isn’t helping the Philadelphia Phillies much in June

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,In Need of a Slumpbuster by chinmusic on Saturday 18 June 2011 at 9:20 am

29-year old righty swinging outfielder Ben Francisco has not adjusted well to going back to coming off the bench. He has played in 11 games this June for the Phillies and he is 2 for 16 (.125 avg, .542 OPS) with 3 runs scored. Francisco has walked 8 times this month, so at least he is showing a good eye this month. Francisco has now played in 60 games for the Phillies this year and he is 37 for 170 (.218 avg, .708 OPS) with 18 runs scored, 6 homers, 25 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. The Phillies need Francisco to get his act back together because they need his bat off the bench.

Domonic Brown is cooling off for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,In Need of a Slumpbuster by chinmusic on Monday 13 June 2011 at 2:12 pm

23-year old lefty swinging RF Domonic Brown is cooling off after a hot start to the season. In his last 11 games, Brown is 5 for 35 (.143 avg, .507 OPS) with 2 runs scored, 1 homer, 4 RBIs and 1 stolen base. He has played in 20 games overall this year and he is 16 for 67 (.239 avg, .719 OPS) with 7 runs scored, 2 homers, 9 RBIs and 2 stolen bases. The Phillies were hoping that Brown would help replace the offense that the Phillies lost when Jayson Werth signed with the Nationals but that just hasn’t worked out so far this year.

Raul Ibanez has been awful so far this year for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,In Need of a Slumpbuster by chinmusic on Tuesday 3 May 2011 at 1:01 pm

38-year old lefty swinging LF Raul Ibanez has been downright terrible for the Phillies so far this year. He has played in 25 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 14 for 91 (.154 avg, .446 OPS) with 10 runs scored, 1 homer, 10 RBIs and 1 stolen base. He has already whiffed 27 times already this season. 27-year old righty swinging outfielder John Mayberry could start cutting into Ibanez’ P.T. if he doesn’t start to pick it up with the bat. Mayberry has played in 18 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 10 for 32 (.313 avg, .874 OPS) with 3 runs scored, 1 homer and 3 RBIs.

The Philadelphia Phillies need Jimmy Rollins to get his act together

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,In Need of a Slumpbuster by chinmusic on Wednesday 1 September 2010 at 6:03 pm

31-year old switch hitting Jimmy Rollins needs to get his act together if the Phillies are going to catch the Braves in the A.L. East. Rollins has been gimpy this season dealing with quite a few injuries but he’s healthy now and they need him. Rollins has played in 73 games for the Phillies this year and he is 72 of 299 (.241 avg, .690 OPS) with 39 runs scored, 6 homers, 33 RBIs and 15 stolen bases. The Phillies need Rollins to step up soon as time is running out on the 2010 season.

Raul Ibanez is off to a slow start for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,In Need of a Slumpbuster by chinmusic on Sunday 18 April 2010 at 8:08 am

Starting LF Raul Ibanez is going to be 38 years old in a couple of months so the Phillies are hoping that he’s just off to a slow start and that he is not nearing the end of his career. Ibanez has played in 11 games this season for the Phillies and he is 7 for 40 (.175 avg, .550 OPS) with 5 runs scored and 5 RBIs. I think that Ibanez will step out of his funk soon because he is just too good of a player. After all, he did crank 34 homers last season for the Phillies.

Jimmy Rollins needs to pick up the pace for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,In Need of a Slumpbuster by chinmusic on Saturday 4 July 2009 at 11:06 am

The Phillies need starting shortstop Jimmy Rollins to pick up the pace with the bat. The former MVP of the National League is having a hard time hitting his way out of a paper bag right now. He has played in 72 games for the Phillies this season and he is 67 for 316 (.212 avg, .584 OPS) with 42 runs scored, 6 homers, 29 RBIs and 11 stolen bases. The Phillies can’t bench Rollins because they don’t have anyone to replace him with. The only thing the Phillies can do is drop him in the lineup and hope Rollins has a big second half of the season.

Ryan Howard is in a funk with the bat for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,In Need of a Slumpbuster by chinmusic on Monday 5 May 2008 at 11:01 pm

Ryan Howard is off to another slow start this season for the Phillies. Howard has played in 32 games this season and he is 19 for 114 (.167 avg, .645 OPS) with 16 runs scored, 6 homers and 14 RBIs. Howard has also whiffed an amazing 45 times this season. It’s way to early to panic as Howard got off to a very slow start last season as well. When Howard gets going the Phillies are going to really score a ton of runs.
