Roy Halladay of the Philadelphia Phillies is the cream of the NL East. What starter on the Braves also goes deep into games frequently? 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.
Top Performance Yesterday: Paul Maholm Dials Up A 4-Seam Fastball During 7 Solid Innings At The Ted Against The Friars
Occasionally, I will skip a stat update, especially after a night game before a matinee.
Tal’s Handy Stats will be delayed until the daily article’s feed is completed. Photo, not described otherwise, is in the 1st inning.

Why no one on the Phillies staff can seem to pitch well in the 8th inning is an on-going and unsolved mystery. And in last night’s appalling 9-2 loss to the Marlins, this baffling problem was magnified once again.
No one pitched particularly well yesterday, not even Roy Halladay. He was not bad, obviously, but while 3 runs in 7 innings is great for most guys, it is slightly sub...
Ethan Martin, the 23-year-old righty hurler that was acquired along with Josh Lindblom and a player to be named later just prior to the non-waiver trading deadline from the Los Angeles Dodgers, is adapting quickly to his new home, Reading, PA. In three starts since joining the Phillies organization, Martin has posted a 3-0 record with a 2.08 ERA while striking out 13 and walking...
100% sure that Philadelphia Philly SS Jimmy Rollins was not running full speed yesterday. (above via Crashburn Ally) But Philly radio station 97.5 FM The Fanatic decided to treat it as a chance to...

Jimmy Rollins atoned for his lack of hustle from the prior battle, but other shortcomings on the Philadelphia Phillies extinguished the fire. How are they winning series mostly against contenders with this offense?
TAL’S HANDY CAPS
I will publish after every game that is not washed out. I will have many summer-long highlights of puzzle pieces, especially...

Do me a favor, and don’t look at today’s lineup. You’ll think you’ve jumped in the hot tub time machine back to March. It’s a Clearwater lineup, and an ugly one...
Carlos Ruiz scored from an 84th-minute penalty to help Guatemala to a 3-3 draw against Paraguay in an entertaining friendly Wednesday.
Ruiz also earned an earlier penalty that Marco Pappa converted, and Manuel Leon scored in Guatemala's first positive result in three matches against Paraguay this year.
Hernan Perez, Jonathan Fabbro and Oscar Cardozo scored for Paraguay during...
There was an awful lot going on in last night’s 1-0 Phillies win over the Marlins. And it all began with just the second pitch of the game which Jimmy Rollins sent screaming over the right field wall for the 41st lead-off homer of his career.
That turned out to be the only run of the game, which was also a record-setting game for Rollins. He picked up his 1,731st game at shortstop...

Make no mistake: They are playing out the string toward an October without postseason baseball in Philadelphia for the first time in six years. The Phillies were trailing by one when the eighth inning began, and Manuel summoned righthander B.J. Rosenberg, who had an 8.53 ERA in six appearances.
By the time the inning mercifully ended, Miami had sent 10 men to the plate and scored...
Any series win is a good one at this point but wow, was yesterday's game painful. Save for Halladay who threw a half decent seven innings, the team just looked asleep, highlighted by the talk of the town today that Rollins could have spun the wheels a bit harder. I don't know. I can't get worked up about stuff like that in a lost season. It looked like Pierre was...
MIAMI (AP) -- Greg Dobbs drove in the Miami Marlins' first run in 31 innings, then hit a go-ahead homer in the sixth off Roy Halladay to help them beat the Philadelphia Phillies 9-2 Wednesday afternoon.
Mark Buehrle (10-11) achieved the 10-win milestone on his sixth try, extending his streak reaching double digits in victories to 12 consecutive years. The left-hander allowed...
In honor of football season nearing, we’ve got players from New York and Milwaukee, not Eli Manning and Aaron Rodgers, that will provide great value in daily fantasy baseball leagues. Value Plays: Milwaukee Brewers – I still believe Cliff Lee is an élite pitcher, but he hasn’t proven it this season and is unlikely to do so against [...]

Ever since the Phillies won the World Series a lot of people have become Phillies fans. For some hardcore Phillies fans this has caused some problems. As a lifelong Phillies fan I have mixed feelings about this issue. So let’s take a minute to put down our Schmitters and $7 dollar beers and look at the pros and cons.Pros: Well the most obvious...
