Carlos Ruiz is on fire with the bat for the Philadelphia Phillies this year

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Playing Well by chinmusic on Friday 18 May 2012 at 12:06 pm

33-year old righty swinging catcher Carlos Ruiz is ripping the ball so far this year for the Phillies. Ruiz has played in 35 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 41 for 113 (.363 avg, 1.024 OPS) with 19 runs scored, 7 homers, 27 RBIs and 1 stolen base. Ruiz has only walked 8 times this year, but he has only whiffed 12 times. So he is swinging at a lot of pitches and he’s hitting them really hard. Ruiz has career highs of 49 runs scored, 9 homers and 54 RBIs in his major league career and he’s likely to smash those numbers as long as he can stay healthy.

Laynce Nix is playing well for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Playing Well by chinmusic on Friday 4 May 2012 at 9:53 am

32-year old lefty swinging outfielder Laynce Nix is swinging a hot stick off the bench for the Phillies so far this year. He has played in 17 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 13 for 38 (.342 avg, 1.076 OPS) with 6 runs scored, 2 homers and 10 RBIs. If Nix keeps swinging the bat like he is right now, the Phillies are going to have to start playing him more….likely at the expense of Juan Pierre in LF. But, that might be hard to pull off as Pierre is also hitting well right now.

Juan Pierre is off to a good start for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Playing Well by chinmusic on Saturday 21 April 2012 at 2:04 pm

34-year old lefty swinging Juan Pierre has stood out so far in LF for the Phillies. He has played in 12 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 12 for 38 (.316 avg, .702 OPS) with 3 runs scored, 0 homers, 4 RBIs and 1 stolen base. This should come as no surprise as Pierre has a career batting average of .296 in his first 13 years in the majors and he is major league baseball’s active leader in stolen bases with 557 of them. He might just be able to win the full-time starting job in LF if he continues to hit the ball like he is so far this year.

Hunter Pence is off to a good start for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Playing Well by chinmusic on Thursday 12 April 2012 at 2:02 pm

The Phillies have only scored 15 runs in their first five games this year, but you can’t blame Hunter Pence for that. Pence has played in all 5 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 7 for 19 (.368 avg, 1.008 OPS) with 2 runs scored, 1 homer, 4 RBIs and 1 stolen base. I think that Pence is going to have a monster year with the bat in 2012, and he will be the main man in the batting order until Ryan Howard returns to action.

He has played in 3 games for the Phillies so far in this series and he is 7 for 12 (.583 avg, 1.449 OPS) with 5 runs scored, 3 doubles and 2 stolen bases. Rollins has been giving the Phillies a good jolt from the top of the lineup as the Cardinals have been a very serious challenger so far. The Phillies need Rollins to keep up the good work.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Playing Well by chinmusic on Wednesday 14 September 2011 at 6:04 pm

With Chase Utley and Jimmy Rollins gimpy, 33-year old righty swinging infielder Wilson Valdez has stepped up. Since August 1st, Valdez has played in 25 games in which he is 23 for 80 (.288 avg) with 15 runs scored, 1 homer, 13 RBIs and 1 stolen base. Valdez has now played in 94 games this year for the Phillies and he is 65 for 261 (.249 avg, .638 OPS) with 38 runs scored, 1 homer, 29 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. The Phillies need Valdez to keep up the good work until Utley and Rollins are ready to return to action.

John Mayberry has been red hot for the Philadelphia Phillies lately

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Playing Well by chinmusic on Monday 12 September 2011 at 11:47 am

27-year old righty swinging outfielder John Mayberry has been really hot since August 1st for the Phillies. Since August 1st, Mayberry has played in 27 games for the Phillies in which he is 20 for 70 (.286 avg) with 16 runs scored, 7 homers and 19 RBIs. Overall this year, Mayberry has played in 89 games for the Phillies in which he is 59 for 224 (.263 avg, .840 OPS) with 31 runs scored, 13 homers, 45 RBIs and 7 stolen bases. Mayberry has not only earned himself a place on the playoff roster with his performance this year, but he might get some starts in LF against lefty starters.

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Playing Well by chinmusic on Wednesday 31 August 2011 at 2:16 pm

31-year old lefty swinging 1B Ryan Howard is still providing a lot of thump in the middle of the batting order for the Phillies. He has played in 128 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 121 for 483 (.251 avg, .827 OPS) with 71 runs scored, 29 homers, 102 RBIs and 1 stolen base.

Hunter Pence has been electric for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Playing Well by chinmusic on Tuesday 16 August 2011 at 5:26 pm

28-year old righty swinging RF Hunter Pence has been electric since coming over from the Astros in the big trade deadline deal. Pence has played in 14 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 18 for 55 (.327 avg, .926 OPS) with 7 runs scored, 3 homers and 11 RBIs. He has now played in 114 games for the Astros & Phillies so far this year and he is 141 for 454 (.311 avg, .840 OPS) with 56 runs scored, 14 homers, 73 RBIs and 7 stolen bases. Adding Pence at the trade deadline was another great move for Phillies’ GM Ruben Amaro. The Phillies are for sure the team to beat now.
