The best pitching stats are between Roy Halladay and the Philadelphia Phillies versus the Halos. How close are they and which team is better? The Apocalyptic Horsemen Stats are in my daily coverage.
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.

Major League Baseball has had a slew of weird injuries, but Ryan Howard may have won the award for the weirdest.
The Phillies slugger broke a toe Saturday after reportedly dropping a lead pipe on it, and he won't play in any of the team's final four games of the season, according to Todd Zolecki of MLB.com
In Howard's final at-bat of last season, he tore his Achilles...
Does Darin Ruf alter the plans for the Philadelphia Phillies in the off-season? Or can he add to the offensive power from the right side?

The empty hot corner will probably belong to someone other than Chase Utley for the Philadelphia Phillies in April. Who would be better than Freddy Galvis?

The Phillies playoff run is officially over after losing to the Marlins 2-1 last night. It was another “walk-off” loss for the Phillies their 12th this season, personifying the season. No hitting and poor relief pitching ,a formula in many of the Phillies losses and what needs to be addressed in the off-season.
We all new it was coming but I have to admit it still hurts. From...

The end of this Phillies season seems to be a long, painful check list of unfortunate events. And there are still 4 games to go, so the list may not yet be complete. Let us see where we are so far:
- The Phillies have been eliminated from the playoffs.
- Ryan Howard dropped a warm-up bat on his toe and broke it, ending his season. That makes 2 straight seasons that will end with...
The Philadelphia Phillies began the season believing it could be like each of the previous five, with an NL East title and a chance to win the World Series.
For the first time in six years, though, they won't even have the opportunity to finish as champions.
A day after being eliminated from postseason contention, the slumping Phillies face a Miami Marlins team on Saturday...
Another evening, another Bryce Harper first inning home run, another Nationals win over the Phillies. Last night’s victim was Tyler Cloyd. It was Harper’s 21st home run of his rookie year.
If this season went on a little longer, Harper would put up some eye-popping numbers. The bomb was his 94th run scored on the season. Remember, the guy didn’t come up until a month into...
MIAMI -- Cole Hamels added to his season-high win total with a strong outing Sunday. His manager, Charlie Manuel, thinks the three-time All-Star can be even better. "I'm still looking for him to get one of these big years, like a 20 to 24-game winning season," Manuel said. "I think he's capable of doing that." Hamels (17-6) pitched seven strong innings...
Seems fitting, no?
According to many reports, including MLB.com's Todd Zolecki, Ryan Howard is done for the season with a broken toe. It seems he broke it by accidentally dropped his on-deck circle lead pipe on it.
Darin Ruf will start at first base for the Phillies tonight in Miami.
Final: Phillies 4, Marlins 1.

Most of the Phillies' scoring today came right in the top of the first inning. After Jimmy Rollins walked and Juan Pierre singled to center field, Chase Utley hit a sacrifice fly- RBI for the first run of the game. Carlos Ruiz followed with a RBI...
The Phillies were officially eliminated from October playoff baseball last night, as they arrived to their tragic number of 0. Here's how the rest of the season will pan out:
Phillies at Marlins
Saturday, September 29: Roy Halladay (10-8, 4.40 ERA) vs. Ricky Nolasco (12-12, 4.35 ERA)
Sunday, September 30: Cole Hamels (16-6, 3.11 ERA) vs. Nathan Eovaldi...
Carlos Lee's game-winning single in the bottom of the ninth inning lifted the Miami Marlins to a 2-1 win over Philadelphia and eliminated the Phillies from playoff contention Friday night.
The Phillies overcame a horrible first half and came from way behind to get within three games of St. Louis for the second wild card spot. But they lost five of the next six to fall out of...
Final: Phillies 1, Marlins 2.
WP: Steve Cishek (5-2, 2.77 ERA) LP: Josh Lindblom (3-4, 3.34 ERA)
A September game consisting of two non-contending teams definitely will draw minimal interest from the media and the respective city's fans. Both teams tonight, with nothing to play far, hardly brought anything to the table.
The Phillies were trailing 1-0 heading into the...
