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.
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.

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...
It occurred to me yesterday that the Philadelphia Phillies string of National League East Championships had come to a quiet end. They are 16.5 games behind the Nats and 10.5 behind the Braves with just over 10 games to go.
Their run is over. And no one is talking about it.
Because the new, second and final Wild Card playoff spot is still in reach (barely) but it is still...
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...
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...

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...
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...
Jimmy Rollins led off the game with a home run. And, well, Ryan Howard finished it with one.
The Phillies were trailing the Mets 2-1 in the top of the ninth when Howard hit a two run shot that gave the Phillies the lead for good. Jonathan Papelbon worked the ninth for his 36th save as the Phils tried to keep pace in the Wild Card hunt with the 3-2 victory.
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.

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...
NEW YORK -- Ryan Howard has been battling thoughts lately of trying to do too much in one at-bat. For most of Wednesday night, the Philadelphia Phillies' slumping first baseman acknowledged he had trouble doing anything. He had been "chasing the fastball" from New York Mets rookie starter Matt Harvey unsuccessfully, continuing a homer-less September through a 0-for...
Cole Hamels continued his red-hot season tonight at Citi Field, recording double-digit strikeouts in an outstanding effort which he would later receive the no-decision for. The offense showed up a little late tonight, long after Mets' starter Matt Harvey left the ballgame.
Jimmy Rollins started off this ballgame against Matt Harvey doing what he does best. Jimmy launched...
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.

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...
