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.




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.

Top Performance Yesterday: Shaun Marcum Worked 7 Three-Hit Innings Against The Cubs At Home


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.

2013 Phillies Could See Hamels, Victorino gone

Ruiz powers Phillies victory

Before Friday’s opening of a three-game series with the San Diego Padres, Phillies manager Charlie Manuel was asked what it would take for Carlos Ruiz to become an all-star. “If Chooch keeps hitting the way he is and catching the way he is, I think he stands a good chance of the all-star game,” Manuel said. Good observation. In a season sapped by a struggling offense, Ruiz...

Call Ups Could Provide Relief (Literally)

The Philadelphia Phillies came into Friday night’s game against the lowly San Diego Padres in need of a win in the worst way. They had dropped 3 straight at home to the New York Mets in which their bullpen allowed a staggering 14 runs (12 earned) on 13 hits and 6 walks in 7.1 IP. Take a moment and let that sink in. That would be a 15.21 ERA and a 2.67 WHIP. Oh, and before I forget...
