Jonathan Papelbon has been locking down games late for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Wednesday 23 May 2012 at 8:06 am

31-year old righty closer Jonathan Papelbon has been an outstanding addition to the Phillies’ pitching staff. Papelbon has pitched in 17 games (0 starts) for the Phillies so far this year and he is 0-1 with 12 saves, a 2.20 ERA and a 0.92 WHIP. He has only given up 11 hits and 4 walks in 16 1/3 innings so far this year while whiffing 19 batters. Papelbon has now pitched in 413 games (3 starts) in his first 8 years in the majors and he is 23-20 with 231 saves, a 2.32 ERA and a 1.01 WHIP. Papelbon has been one of the very best closers in all of baseball in his career.

The Philadelphia Phillies’ rotation is keeping them afloat

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Friday 18 May 2012 at 12:02 pm

The Phillies are having a hard time scoring runs, but the starting pitchers are keeping them afloat so far this year. The Phillies have a nice mix of righties (Roy Halladay, Joe Blanton and Vance Worley) and lefties (Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels) in the starting rotation. Roy Halladay is still the horse of this pitching staff, as he expects to go nine innings every time he starts. Halladay has started 9 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 4-3 with a 3.22 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP. Cliff Lee has missed a couple of starts due to injury, but he has been outstanding this year for the Phillies. Lee has started 5 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 0-1 with a 1.95 ERA and a 0.76 WHIP. Cole Hamels is in his free agent walk year and he’s looking to break the bank with the way he is pitching so far this year. Hamels has started 7 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 5-1 with a 2.28 ERA and a 1.04 WHIP. Vance Worley is the youngest member of the Phillies’ starting rotation and he’s looking good so far this year. Worley has started 7 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 3-2 with a 3.07 ERA and a 1.34 WHIP. The biggest surprise for the Phillies has been Joe Blanton, who is healthy and pitching well. Blanton has pitched in 8 games (7 starts) so far this year for the Phillies and he is 4-3 with a 2.96 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP. If the Phillies ever start scoring some runs, they could go on a very nice run in 2012.

Vance Worley has been outstanding so far this year for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Saturday 28 April 2012 at 8:00 am

24-year old righty starting pitcher Vance Worley has made the Phillies’ rotation into the Big Four. He has started 4 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 2-1 with a 2.16 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP. Worley has whiffed 27 batters in his first 25 innings this year, which is pretty impressive. He has now pitched in 34 games (27 starts) in his first three years with the Phillies and he is 14-5 with a 2.76 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP. The Phillies hope that Worley continues to roll.

Joe Blanton is looking good for the Philadelphia Phillies so far this year

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Monday 16 April 2012 at 4:32 pm

The Phillies tried to deal 31-year old righty starting pitcher Joe Blanton over the winter, but found no takers. He pitched in 11 games (8 starts) last year for the Phillies and he was 1-2 with a 5.01 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP, as his season ended early to a barking elbow. Blanton has come out of the gates looking pretty solid in 2012. He has pitched in 2 games (1 start) for the Phillies so far this year and he is 1-1 with a 2.35 ERA and a 0.78 WHIP. If Blanton can stay healthy, he will give the Phillies a solid starter at the back end of the starting rotation in 2012.

Roy Halladay is off to a fast start in 2012 for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Thursday 12 April 2012 at 2:06 pm

34-year old righty starting pitcher Roy Halladay is off to a blazing start to the 2012 season. He has pitched in 2 games (all starts) for the Phillies so far this year and he is 2-0 with a 0.60 ERA and a 0.53 WHIP. Halladay has only given up 7 hits and walked 1 batter in his first 15 innings this year with 8 strikeouts. Halladay has been awesome since arriving in Philly three years ago. He has now pitched in 67 games (all starts) for the Phillies and he is 42-16 with a 2.34 ERA and a 1.03 WHIP.

Vance Worley will be moving to the bullpen for the Philadelphia Phillies for the playoffs

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Tuesday 27 September 2011 at 2:01 pm

24-year old righty starting pitcher Vance Worley will be moving to the bullpen for the playoffs for the Phillies. He has pitched in 24 games (21 starts) for the Phillies so far this year and he is 11-3 with a 3.03 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP. Worley has now pitched in 29 games (23 starts) in his first two years in the majors and he is 12-4 with a 2.88 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP. Worley has been a huge asset to the Phillies this year as he really stepped up when Roy Oswalt and Joe Blanton went down to injury. I have a feeling that he is going to really help the Phillies out of the pen.

Cliff Lee has been outstanding the last couple of months for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Wednesday 21 September 2011 at 3:56 pm

33-year old lefty starting pitcher Cliff Lee is saving his best for last. Since August 1st, Lee has started 8 games in which he is 6-0 with a 0.56 ERA and a 0.76 WHIP. He has only given up 39 hits and walked 10 batters while whiffing 64 batters in his last 64 2/3 innings! He appears well tuned for the playoffs and the Phillies hope he keeps up the good work. Lee has now pitched in 31 games (all starts) for the Phillies this year and he is 16-8 with a 2.38 ERA and a 1.03 WHIP. The Phillies’ front office looks like they made a super decision in bringing Lee back into the fold last winter.

Cliff Lee is on a roll in August for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Wednesday 10 August 2011 at 3:39 pm

32-year old lefty starting pitcher Cliff Lee has started 2 games so far in August and he is 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 0.77 WHIP. He has been a tad hot and cold so far this year for the Phillies. In his seven starts in June & August this season, Lee is 7-0 with a 0.15 ERA and a 0.71 WHIP! In his other 17 starts this year, Lee is 5-7 with a 4.22 ERA and a 1.28 WHIP. Of course when you put the numbers togehter as a whole, they are still quite impressive. Lee has started 24 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 12-7 with a 2.83 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP. He has only given up 153 hits and he has walked 34 batters in his first 172 innings so far this year. But the most impressive stat for Lee so far this year is his 177 whiffs. He has turned into a strikeout pitcher and he will easily set a new career high in strikeouts as his current high is 185 of them. The bottom line is that Lee has been great this year for the Phillies.

Kyle Kendrick has been really solid for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Thursday 21 July 2011 at 10:10 am

26-year old righty starter/reliever Kyle Kendrick is pitching the best baseball of his major league career right now. Kendrick has pitched in 23 games (8 starts) for the Phillies so far this year and he is 5-4 with a 3.34 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP. He has filled in for whatever role the Phillies have needed him to and he has looked good in all of them so far this year. Kendrick has pitched in 116 games (91 starts) in his first five years with the Phillies and he is 40-28 with a 4.52 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP.

The Philadelphia Phillies are sending a quartet to the All-Star Game

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Playing Well, Throwing Well by chinmusic on Wednesday 6 July 2011 at 9:59 am

The Philadelphia Phillies will be sending a quartet of players to the All-Star Game next week. 35-year old righty swinging 3B Placido Polanco was elected by the fans, so he’s going to be the starting 3B. Polanco has played in 83 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 88 for 321 (.274 avg, .676 OPS) with 34 runs scored, 4 homers, 39 RBIs and 3 stolen bases. He was the best of a very weak crop of 3B in the N.L. this year. 34-year old righty starting pitcher Roy Halladay will be making the trip to the All-Star Game. He has started 18 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 11-3 with a 2.44 ERA and a 1.03 WHIP. 32-year old lefty Cliff Lee will be heading out west next week too. Lee has started 18 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 9-6 with a 2.92 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP. 27-year old Cole Hamels rounds out the Phillies’ contingent heading to the All-Star Game as he is having by far the best year of his career. Hamels has started 18 games for the Phillies so far this year and he is 10-4 with a 2.40 ERA and a 0.95 WHIP. I’m surprised that Ryan Howard didn’t get picked but the Phillies will still be represented well at the All-Star Game.
