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.

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.

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.

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.

Antonio Bastardo has been a lifesaver in the bullpen for the Philadelphia Phillies this year

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by chinmusic on Monday 4 July 2011 at 1:33 pm

With Brad Lidge, Ryan Madson and Jose Contreras on the D.L., the Phillies have turned to 25-year old lefty reliever Antonio Bastardo to close and he’s off to a good start in his new role. Bastardo has pitched in 33 games (0 starts) for the Phillies so far this year and he is 3-0 with 4 saves, a 0.90 ERA and a 0.80 WHIP. He has only given up 11 hits in his first 30 innings this year while he has whiffed 34 batters which shows just how nasty he has been this year. Bastardo has really grown up as a pitcher as his first two years were kind of rough. In Bastardo’s first two years with the Phillies, he worked in 31 games (0 starts) in which he was 4-3 with a 5.53 ERA and a 1.49 WHIP. The Phillies need Bastardo to stay on his game as he has been electric for them so far this year.

Cliff Lee’s record isn’t indicitive of how well he’s pitching for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by chinmusic on Sunday 5 June 2011 at 3:59 pm

Lefty starting pitcher Cliff Lee’s record is only 4-5 this year, but he hasn’t pitched too bad. He has pitched in 12 games (all starts) for the Phillies so far this year and he has a 3.94 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP. Lee has given up 82 hits in his first 80 innings so far this year, but he has also whiffed 90 batters while only walking 19 of them. You have to think that Lee is going to start getting a lot of wins soon if he keeps pitching like he is so far this year.

Cole Hamels is really pitching well so far this year for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by chinmusic on Friday 20 May 2011 at 4:12 pm

27-year old lefty starting pitcher Cole Hamels has been outstanding so far this year for the Phillies. He has pitched in 9 games (all starts) for the Phillies so far this year and he is 5-2 with a 2.92 ERA and a 1.01 WHIP. He has only given up 49 hits and walked 13 batters in his first 61 2/3 innings this year while whiffing 64 batters. He has been the Phillies’ second best starting pitcher behind Roy Halladay so far this year. He will likely set new career highs in both wins (15) and strikeouts (211) in 2011 if he can just stay healthy.

Roy Halladay continues to dominate for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by chinmusic on Monday 9 May 2011 at 3:47 pm

33-year old righty starting pitcher Roy Halladay is still the unquestioned ace of the staff for the Phillies. Halladay has pitched in 7 games (all starts) for the Phillies so far this year and he is 5-1 with a 2.19 ERA and a 0.98 WHIP. He has only given up 45 hits in 53 1/3 innings so far this year. Halladay has already whiffed 57 batters while only walking 7, which is amazing! Halladay has now pitched in 40 games (all starts) in his first two years with the Phillies and he is 26-11 with a 2.40 ERA and a 1.03 WHIP. With the way Halladay is pitching right now he might win the Cy Young Award in the N.L. once again this year.
