Kyle Kendrick of the Philadelphia Phillies is a temporary starter.  How do the fill-ins for Washington match-up with the locals?  The Apocalyptic Horsemen Stats are in my recent coverage linked below.




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.

Check out:  Philadelphia Phillies storyline: Trade partners


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.

Philadelphia Phillies: 2012 ERA for the MLB 5 at game 62



What Does Utley’s Rehab Mean?

OK, so now that the Chase Utley news has sunk, let’s examine what the commencement of a minor league rehab stint means for the Phillies’ second baseman… - It means first and foremost that Utley begins a 20-day clock, which is true for all position players once an official minor league rehab assignment begins. This means that, barring a setback, Utley will be back in the major...

Twins open series with struggling Phillies

The Philadelphia Phillies were three games over .500 and had won seven of nine after Kyle Kendrick pitched them to victory June 1 - right around the time the Minnesota Twins began their current surge. Much has changed for the Phillies since. Kendrick takes the hill looking to help Philadelphia avoid a ninth loss in 10 games when it makes its first visit to Target Field on Tuesday...

Phils Pull Out a Win Versus Twins

Cole Hamels- AP Nothing comes east these days for the Phillies, as the National League East division’s last place club went down to the wire on Wednesday night to notch a victory over the Twins by a score of 9-8. Behind a less-than-sharp Cole Hamels, the Phils were able to lock down a win in a month when such results aren’t very common.  The game marked just the third time...

Thome adds to Target Field memories, as foe

MINNEAPOLIS This three-game series between the Philadelphia Phillies and Minnesota Twins is likely Jim Thome's last go-round at Target Field, the site of some of his mammoth home runs over the past few years. Thome added one more to the list Wednesday. In the fourth inning of the Phillies' 9-8 win, Thome took Twins reliever Anthony Swarzak deep for a two-run homer to...

Chase Utley & Our Great Expectations

It is official; Chase Utley will begin his rehab assignment with Class-A Clearwater today. This gives him 20 days to return to the big league club, putting his return around or before July 2, 2012. Are you totally psyched? No? Yeah, I am not terribly optimistic either. It would just be wrong to expect the Utley of 2008 with 33 homers and a .380 on-base percentage to return. He has...

Pitching a Fit Over Phils Pitching

At the start of the season, everyone was worried about the Phillies offense being strong enough to carry a solid starting pitching staff to wins. Now that the offense is slowly piecing runs together, the entire pitching staff has fallen apart. Let us examine the grisly evidence: Roy Halladay is on the DL. Vance Worley is pitching will bone chips in his elbow. Cliff Lee has no wins...

The Phillie Phanatic tends to mess around with people, but he may have taken things too far recently. The Phillies mascot has been sued for allegedly throwing a woman into a hotel pool in July 2010. The woman, Suzanne Pierce, claims she was hurt pretty badly after landing in the shallow end, suffering "severe and permanent injuries to her head, neck, back, body, arms and legs...

Phillies end skid with slugfest win at Minnesota

MINNEAPOLIS -- In desperate need of some good news, the Philadelphia Phillies pounded out 15 hits and survived the Minnesota Twins' rally on Wednesday, snapping a three-game skid with a 9-8 win. Cole Hamels (9-3) pitched into the seventh inning and got much-needed run support for the Phillies, who remain 9 1/2 games behind the Washington Nationals in the NL East. John Mayberry...

Shreve showing promise despite rocky AA debut

It wasn’t the debut Colby Shreve wanted to make at the Double-A level. On Thursday, fresh off the excitement of his second promotion of the season, the 24-year-old surrendered three hits and walked three batters, while letting up six runs (five of those earned) in two-thirds of an inning, in relief for the Reading Phillies. The disappointment was far greater than he had felt at...
