Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by chinmusic on Wednesday 8 September 2010 at 5:56 pm

33-year old righty starting pitcher Roy Oswalt has been outstanding for the Phillies. He has started 8 games for the Phillies so far and he is 5-1 with a 2.30 ERA and a 0.99 WHIP. Oswalt has only given up 38 hits in 54 2/3 innings for the Phillies while whiffing 48 batters. He is also pounding the strike zone as he has only walked 16 batters in his 8 starts with the Phillies. Overall this year, Oswalt has started 28 games for the Phillies & Astros and he is 11-13 with a 3.09 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP. The Phillies need Oswalt to finish the season strongly.

Roy Halladay has been awesome for the Philadelphia Phillies this year

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by chinmusic on Friday 27 August 2010 at 12:05 pm

33-year old righty starting pitcher Roy Halladay has pitched just like the Phillies thought he would this year. Halladay has started 27 games for the Phillies this year and he is 16-9 with a 2.22 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP. He has given up 187 hits in 207 innings pitched this year and he has only walked 25 batters so you better be ready to swing when he’s on the mound. The most important thing for the Phillies’ pitching staff as a whole is that Halladay is a workhorse which saves the bullpen every fifth day. He has completed 8 games this season including three shutouts. He has been the best pitcher in the National League this season but he might not win the Cy Young Award due to a lack of run support which is one thing I never thought I would say this year because of the Phillies’ offense.

The Philadelphia Phillies have three All-Stars

Blogged under Awards,Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Playing Well,Throwing Well by chinmusic on Monday 5 July 2010 at 9:48 am

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.

Brad Lidge looks like he’s getting it back together for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by chinmusic on Monday 28 June 2010 at 4:15 pm

33-year old righty closer Brad Lidge was simply awful for the Phillies last season. He pitched in 67 games (0 starts) for the Phillies last season and he was 0-8 with 31 saves, a 7.21 ERA and a 1.81 WHIP. This season he started late because he was rehabbing from some surgery. He is off to a good start for the Phillies in 2010. He has pitched in 13 games (0 starts) for the Phillies so far this season and he is 0-0 with 5 saves, a 3.27 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP. He has whiffed 16 batters while only walking 3 in 11 innings which is promising. The Phillies can’t afford to be blowing games late this season like they did last season because the Braves and Mets are for real in 2010.

Cole Hamels is looking good this year for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by chinmusic on Sunday 20 June 2010 at 12:43 pm

26-year old lefty starting pitcher Cole Hamels had a rough go of it in 2009 working in 32 games (all starts) in which he was 10-11 with a 4.32 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP. But he looks like his old self this year. He has started 14 games for the Phillies this year and he is 6-5 with a 3.75 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP. Hamels has whiffed 85 batters in 86 1/3 for the Phillies as he seems to be all the way back for the Phillies. He should start getting more wins soon as the offense and bullpen are both going to get better at some point this year.

Roy Halladay tosses a perfect game for the Philadelphia Phillies

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by chinmusic on Monday 31 May 2010 at 4:41 pm

33-year old righty starting pitcher Roy Halladay tossed a perfect game (the 20th in MLB history) against the Marlins last Saturday. He whiffed 11 helpless Marlins as he threw 72 strikes out of his 115 total pitches. Halladay has started 11 games for the Phillies this year and he is 7-3 with a 1.99 ERA and a 0.99 WHIP as he has been outstanding this year. He has only given up 73 hits this season in 86 innings pitched as he has been missing a ton of bats this year. He is being really aggressive in the strike zone as usual as he has whiffed 70 batters while only walking 12. Halladay has been awesome this year and there is no reason to think he can’t keep up the outstanding work.

Roy Halladay is giving the Philadelphia Phillies exactly what they are paying for

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by chinmusic on Friday 21 May 2010 at 5:25 pm

The Phillies traded for righty starting pitcher Roy Halladay knowing that he was a horse who could give the bullpen a rest every five days. He has started 9 games this season and he already has 4 complete games and 2 shutouts. He is 6-2 with a sparkling 1.64 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP so far this year. He has pitched 71 1/3 innings for the Phillies this season allowing 65 hits, walking 10 batters and whiffing 58 as he has been simply outstanding this season. I’m actually shocked that Halladay already has 2 losses on the year with the team he has backing him up. I fully expect Halladay to be one of the leaders (if not the winner) in the Cy Young Award Voting at the end of the 2010 season.

Jamie Moyer made history for the Philadelphia Philles last night

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by chinmusic on Saturday 8 May 2010 at 10:34 am

47-year old lefty starting pitcher Jamie Moyer became the oldest pitcher ever to throw a complete game shutout last night against the Atlanta Braves. He only gave up 2 hits without walking any hitters last night! Moyer was very aggressive as he had 1 three pitch inning last night and he threw 71 of his 105 pitches for strikes. The Phillies won the game 7-0 so there was never much of a thought of pulling Moyer from the game last night. He has started 6 games for the Phillies this season and he is 4-2 with a 4.38 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP. He has only walked 5 batters in 39 innings pitched so far this season. It appears that Moyer figures he only has so many bullets left in his gun so he is going to attack the strike zone. He now has 262 career wins in the major leagues and he can get to 300 if he keeps pitching well and can stay healthy.

Jose Contreras has been nasty out of the pen for the Philadelphia Phillies so far

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Throwing Well by chinmusic on Friday 30 April 2010 at 7:46 pm

38-year old righty reliever Jose Contreras has been downright nasty out of the pen for the Phillies so far this year. He has pitched in 8 games (0 starts) for the Phillies this season and he is 1-1 with a 1.35 ERA and a 0.60 WHIP. Contreras has only given up 4 hits in 6 2/3 innings this season as he is missing a lot of bats. He also has a stunning 12 whiffs without walking a batters showing just how much control he has had over the hitters this year. If Contreras keeps pitching like he is right now he will start pitching later in games for the Phillies.

J.A. Happ is pitching well this season for the Philadelphia Phillies but he’s hurting

Blogged under Bloglockers,Front Page,General,Injuries,Throwing Well by chinmusic on Monday 19 April 2010 at 5:49 pm

27-year old lefty starting pitcher J.A. Happ is off to a good start this season for the Phillies. He has started 2 games for the Phillies this season and he is 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 1.65 WHIP. Happ has only given up 9 hits in 10 1/3 innings this season but he has walked 8 batters and that is way too many. He will need to start throwing more strikes of he’s going to get into a lot of trouble this year. He looks like he might be missing his next start due to elbow and forearm soreness. With Joe Blanton already on the D.L. the Phillies can’t afford to be without Happ too long.
