Kyle Kendrick of the Philadelphia Phillies is the 4-slot option. How does the four for the Yankees match up with the locals? The Apocalyptic Horsemen Stats are in my recent coverage linked below.
TAL’S HANDY STATS
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.

BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
As the Phillies continue their hot ways, so does Ryan Howard. Howard hit his third home run in as many nights tonight to help lead the way against the Braves. The Phillies used four long balls and some good pitching from Kyle Kendrick to win 6-2 and move up another game in the Wild Card hunt.
Carlos Ruiz, Chase Utley, Kevin Frandsen chipped in with solo home runs of their own...
MR. MET WAS SPARED
The Phillies thrashed the Mets 16-1 last night, and New York manager Terry Collins had some choice words for his team in a press conference after the game.
Collins answered that he was embarrassed by the team's performance in the loss, and when asked if he thinks the team quit, Collins said "you'd have to ask them", and said he wouldn't express his opinion publicly...

In playing blackjack, there is a way to decrease the house advantage. This way of playing, basic strategy, limits the house advantage from somewhere around 0.64% for a six deck game to nearly even. The plays feel a little funny sometimes (hitting a hard 16 against...
Just two hits by the offense and some lackluster defense led to another loss on Sunday, as the Phillies dropped the series finale to the Braves, by a score of 2-1.
Roughly a year following the Phillies contributing to Atlanta’s historic collapse down the stretch and missing the playoffs in 2011, it seemed to be the Braves that did in the Phils this time around, as the team that...
Returning warriors, like Chase Utley, have guided the Philadelphia Phillies to a possible wild-card berth with a strong 2nd half. Can Utley, Jimmy Rollins and Ryan Howard inspire this squad to compete beyond the regular schedule?

Jimmy Rollins is one of the best shortstops in Phillies history, and will undoubtedly be on the Phillies Wall of Fame one day. But will he be in Major League Baseball’s Hall of Fame as well? I say that he should get in eventually, though I don’t think he ever will. Our writers take a look:
Eric Seidman: Jimmy Rollins has 48.6 WAR in his career, which ranks 12th among shortstops...
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Kevin Frandsen hit one of Philadelphia's four solo homers to back Kyle Kendrick, and the Phillies inched closer in the NL playoff race with a 6-2 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Friday night.
Ryan Howard, Carlos Ruiz and Chase Utley also went deep for the resurgent Phillies, who pulled within three games of St. Louis for the league's second wild-card...
Tyler Cloyd of the Philadelphia Phillies is the newest member in the rotation. How do other recent additions in the NL East match up with him? The Apocalyptic Horsemen Stats are in my recent coverage linked below.

The Phillies were looking to shake off last night's loss to the Braves with Cliff Lee on the mound who has been looking as dominant as ever lately. All Cliff Lee would need is a bit of offense to back him up.
The Braves would score first this afternoon in the top of the second. David Ross took Cliff Lee deep to center for a solo home run.
In the third, Reed Johnson scored...
Juan Pierre helped the Phillies to a 16-1 route of the New York Mets last night with a career-high 5 hits.
For the Phillies, this season will be a memorable one. Last night’s 16-1 drubbing of the hapless New York Mets will be one of the highlights. As the season winds down, though, it becomes more and more apparent that the Phillies will probably not make the playoffs.
Watching the early blowup and early departure of Phillies ace Roy Halladay evoked a haunting memory from 2007. In fact, the stats are eerily similar to June 9, 2007. Although he only got five outs, the starting pitcher for the Phillies that day gave up six earned runs, and Charlie Manuel went out to get him and called to the bullpen. Minutes later, Manuel followed Freddy...

The Cardinals shook their recent slump and are hot right now. They get Chris Carpenter back tomorrow. It almost seems at this point that if the Phillies win out, they'll fall short. That's the hole that series in Houston helped dig.
I credit them for making it interesting. We all burried the team at one point or another. Hell, I had a tweet ready to go with two outs in...

What a huge win for the Fightin’ Phils on Friday night. They have to continue the momentum all weekend long.

Two big innings lead to the Phils routing of the Mets as they win by the score of 16-1.
The Phils took the lead in the first as, with two men on, and with nobody out, Chase Utley hits an RBI single, knocking in Jimmy Rollins, who had started the game off with a single, then stopped at second base on Juan Pierre’s bunt single, giving the Phils a 1-0 lead, while sending Pierre, who...
