Found September 14, 2012 on

Tyler Cloyd now occupies the bottom slot of the rotation, making starts like yesterday’s for the Philadelphia Phillies.  Are recent additions in the west getting the job done?  The Apocalyptic Horsemen Stats are in my recent coverage linked below.




I am alternating a game-day 2012 ERA For The NL East and a 2012 ERA For The MLB 5. See link section below. In each publication, the number after the title will be based on the quantity of outcomes played by the Phillies. Occasionally, I will skip a stat update, especially after a night game before a matinee.

REASONING For The Stats:

These numbers are a glimpse over the pitching coach’s shoulder, because they warn of difficulty ahead. The rule of thumb is that the bullpen load should be no more than 33.3%, which is a 6-complete average per scheduled outing. That is why going a distance into the game is 6.1 frames or more, which is 70.4%. The added detail of 1 out per contest is 54 innings over the long summer’s course. This also shows the mound masters that give the relievers a well deserved night off, but there is a rust factor due to lack of backend chances. If there are any questions, please ask.

Phillies late season rally shouldn’t stop offseason moves

The professionalism of Juan Pierre (not too mention his hitting) are just one of the reasons that the Phillies find themselves playing meaningful baseball again.But could their success make Phillies brass re-think its offseason plan? There are a lot of emotions running through the city of Philadelphia right now. The once-dead Phillies have raised themselves and have at the very least...

Phillies 500 plus 1 – Get on the Bandwagon! 3 to go

The Phillies Bandwagon continues to load as they stretch their winning streak to 7 games which puts them 1 game over .500 and only 3 games back of the struggling St. Louis who lost again for the final Wild Card spot.  The Pirates lost too and they are now only a half game ahead of the Phillies. My predictions continue to hold true and now the Phillies go play 4 games against the...

Great sign, kid. And congratulations on beating that bastard of an illness. It requires more bravery, strength, heart and desire to beat cancer than most of us can possibly dream to summon.

Cole Hamels Seeks to Put Phillies Back On Winning Track In Houston

Last night, the Phils dropped their first game in over a week, snapping a seven-game win streak, and propelling them back four games in the Wild Card race. In the early goings, it looked like the Phillies victory: a four-run lead against a pathetically weak offense in the Astros. Nope. The Astros would slowly come back to come within one run in the fourth inning. They would keep...

Phillies are Alive and 3 Games Out of the Playoffs!

A few weeks ago, the Phillies were dead. Has-beens. Part of history. But after a hot streak of enjoyable baseball, including a 3-1 victory against the Marlins on Wednesday afternoon for their seventh straight win, they’re on the verge of making the playoffs for the sixth straight season. Being a wild card would be new, but it’s better than where they were headed. Jimmy Rollins...

Shooting Stars: Phillies score early and often in rout of Astros

Jimmy Rollins started it with a bang. Jeremy Horst ended it with a punchout. That was the way the Phillies dismantled  the Astros one night after they stunned them with an eighth-inning rally. In addition to downing the Astros, the Phillies kept their playoff hopes alive by returning to the plus side of the win column and gaining on the Brewers and Pirates in the wildcard standings...

"Bleacher Creatures" Creator Now Selling Phillies Face Masks

Phillies included are Roy Halladay, Jonathan Papelbon, and Cliff Lee.  They also have Mike Vick, and Claude Giroux.  They also sell a Sydney Crosby mask.  Maybe there is something clever Flyers...
