Vance Worley of the Philadelphia Phillies is the youngster in the rotation. How do other young divisional studs match-up with him? 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.

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 ...

Cliff Lee of the Philadelphia Phillies is among the best pitchers in the majors. What west coast hurlers are in that group? The Apocalyptic Horsemen Stats are in my daily coverage.

Happy July 4th!!!
Did Cliff Lee win a game yet? Is he hurt?
It is basically the story of the first half. We all know that Cliff Lee has not been the Lee we saw last season. Phillies have been 7-1 since 2004 on July 4th including two walk offs against the Mets.
Cliff Lee and Chris Young were throwing zeros until the fourth inning. Scott Hairston put the Mets ahead with a solo...
Cliff Lee was savoring a most elusive win when Roy Halladay and Cole Hamels sneaked up behind him, giving their fellow Phillies ace a Gatorade bath. Now that was one early shower Lee could enjoy. Lee finally posted his first victory of the season and Philadelphia hit three late homers, breaking past the New York Mets 9-2 Wednesday and stopping a six-game losing streak.
I love trade talk and speculation. My favorite point of the baseball season has been the run-up to the trade deadline and, for Phillies fans, it has been amongst the most exciting in recent years. Ryan and Corey have drawn their lines in the sand about where to stand with Cole Hamels: Corey says it’s imperative to trade Hamels, Ryan to stand pat. Either way, I love reading the...
Roy Halladay is just one of the many pieces to the Phillies puzzle that landed on the DL this season. The good news is that he could be back a little sooner than anticipated.
The Phillies may have picked up a big win keyed by a late-inning scoring outburst against the New York Mets, but the five-time reigning NL East champions remain 14 games back in the loss column against the Washington Nationals with a record of 36-46. That record also keeps the Phillies eight games out (nine games back in the loss column) of either of the two National League wild...
Since Cole Hamels last took the mound and was a hard-luck loser to Mark Buehrle and the Miami Marlins, the Phillies have one just once, and trade rumors have swirled around the 28 year-old lefthander.
In 2012 Hamels is currently 10-4 with a 3.08 ERA and will be representing the Phillies in the National League for the annual All-Star game on Tuesday in Kansas City. This will...
Philadelphia Phillies (37-46) vs. New York Mets (44-38)

Time: 7:10, Citi Field
Weather: Sunny, 92
Media: Twitter and Facebook
Cole Hamels has been the center of several rumors lately. You have to wonder if these next few starts are his last in a Phillies uniform. All Cole can do is go out there and try to get...
Cliff Lee finally got his first win of the year on Wedneday...but it wasn't easy at all. The Mets took a 2-0 lead into the seventh, and there was potential for another winless Lee today. Chase Utley hit a two-run homer in the seventh to tie the game, Carlos Ruiz hit a go-ahead solo homer, and Lee was still pitching. Then, the Phillies offense went ape. The team scored...
NEW YORK -- A few hours after Philadelphia Phillies manager Charlie Manuel acknowledged his team needed to start winning or face the prospect of having veterans traded, the New York Mets did their part to keep the Phillies' losing streak going. The Mets thumped Philadelphia 11-1 on Tuesday, racking up 15 hits in a rout that sent the Phillies to their sixth straight loss in...
