Most staffs typically have a significant drop-off after their one and two, but the Philadelphia Phillies with John Lannan have a solid five. How do other divisional teams fare on the bottom rung of their rotations? TAL’S HANDY STATS WELCOME, NEWCOMERS: I will publish the 2013 ERA for both the NL East and the other divisional staffs periodically. The completed number of games for the Phillies is at the end of the headline. If you want to check out something different, my storyline articles–by design–represent a baseball man’s thinking, dugout observations and the general manager’s view. Go to my author archives for my most recent coverage. Scroll down to Tal’s Handy Links at the bottom. There will be new storylines after I solve my visibility issues. More details are at Tal’s Handy Caps on Facebook (link below). Check out: 2013 ERA for the Most Eyed Staffs at Philadelphia Phillies’ Game 96   Fernandez Dials Up a Four-Seam Fastball During the First Inning at Home on July 1 Against the Padres. (AP Photo/J Pat Carter)   Top Performance: Jose Fernandez     Reasoning for the Stats:   These numbers are a glimpse over the pitching coach’s shoulder, warning of difficulty ahead. The rule of thumb is the bullpen load should be no more than 33.3 percent, which is a six-inning average per start. That is why going a distance in the game is 6.1 frames or more, which is 70.4 percent. The addition of one out per contest equals 54 innings over the long summer. This also shows the hurlers giving the relievers a well-deserved night off, but there is the pen rustiness due to lack of work.

Phillies rumors: Philadelphia reluctant to sell

The Philadelphia entered the All-Star break at an even .500 on the season. It seems fitting considering the team appears to be on the fence between buying and selling this summer. While at one point it appeared the Phillies could sell with an eye toward the future, it now appears the team will be reluctant to deal veterans at the deadline based on comments made by general partner...

Cliff Lee All Business With Cold Stare During All-Star Game Player Introductions (Video)

For whatever reason, Cliff Lee was in no mood to mess around on Tuesday night at the Major League Baseball All-Star Game. The All-Star Game pregame introductions are usually a chance for players to get their recognition from the fans in attendance and be introduced to fans across the world watching from home. One would think that might be a pretty joyous occasion for most players...

Phillies Nation TV: 3 Keys to the Second Half and Parking Lot Challenge Returns

On this week’s episode, Pat and Corey discuss trade options for the bullpen and centerfield, preview the second half schedule and give their 3 keys to making it a successful one. Ryann has reader questions including one asking, “How many wins do Phillies need to make the playoffs?” Plus, Johnny Goodtimes returns for another edition of Parking Lot Challenge. Watching things...

Surgery possible for Phillies reliever Mike Adams

Philadelphia Phillies right-hander reliever Mike Adams still feels discomfort in his pitching shoulder and might be headed for season-ending surgery. Adams has been on the disabled list since June 21 with right biceps tendinitis. Phillies trainer Scott Sheridan said Adams was examined Thursday by team medical director Dr. Michael Ciccotti and plans to see Los Angeles Dodgers doctor...

Phillies score early and often, take opener 13-8

The Phillies bashed their way to a huge win on Friday, clubbing out 13 runs on 15 hits en route to a 13-8 win in their series opener against the Marlins. The Phillies are now over .500 for the first time since early June. Offense roughs up Hefner  Domonic Brown hit his 24th homer in the game and drove in two runs. AP Photo. Jeremy Hefner entered the game with a 1.67 ERA in his...

Phillies First Half Grades: Starting infielders defining mediocrity

I am not really sure what to make of the Phillies starting infield this season, other than the fact that it is aging and breaking down frequently enough that an argument to shake things up and get younger now is completely valid if the right pieces are available. I have already spoken my mind on how to address the Ryan Howard situation. As much as I respect what Jimmy Rollins and...

Phillies Reliever Jeremy Horst Was Missing But Now Done; Mike Adams Opting For Surgery After All?

A week ago, Phillies left-handed reliever was on the comeback trail, rehabbing at AAA Lehigh Valley. He was doing well: Jeremy Horst with some pretty good heat, strikes out two of three batters he faces in the T7. Wer'e tied at 1-1 — jeff schuler (@jschulermc) July 12, 2013 But...

Next Taking Balls In Center Field For Phillies... Cody Asche?

The Phillies apparently are willing to try anything right now in their quest for a center fielder. We already knew that Cesar Hernandez was working in center field in case something happened to Phillies regular Ben Revere. But now, they appear to be ruling no one out, as reported by...

Phillies Should Pursue Juan Pierre

Some Philadelphia Phillies fans thought that the team should have kept outfielder Juan Pierre. With Ben Revere out 6-8 weeks after surgery on his foot, bringing Pierre back makes sense. Pierre can be acquired on the cheap, can leadoff and set the table for the Phillies, and will give the team a great fourth outfielder when Revere returns. The 35 year old left hander is only hitting...

15 Hits, 13 Runs Propel Phillies into Second Place

Picture by Andrew Gillen Baseball. Is. Back. After an All-Star Break that seemed to last a month and a half, the Phillies and the rest of Major League Baseball returned to regular season action. It was a disappointing showing for Cliff Lee and Domonc Brown on Tuesday night, but it...

Phillies Will Not Make A Roster Move Yet, Despite Having One Backup Outfielder

Does Delmon Young Have a Defensive Replacement? Nope. The Phillies went into the All-Star break with three catchers after Ben Revere hit the disabled list and Erik Kratz returned from injury. The assumption was that the Phillies would make a roster move before they returned to action tonight at Citi...

Phillies-Mets Preview

The Philadelphia Phillies have had a winning record once this year. They've had the best mark in baseball after the All-Star break over the past six. The Phillies look to begin another strong second half when they open a pivotal nine-game road trip against the New York Mets on Friday night. The Phillies (48-48) have won eight of 11 and are looking to move above .500 for the...
