Clearly, one deep-in-the-game arm is Cole Hamels of the Philadelphia Phillies.  How does Miami compare after their ace has worked?  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.


REASONING For The Stats:

Top Performance Yesterday: Brandon Beachy Tossed 7 Complete, 3-Hit Innings Against The Brewers At The Ted

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 8



Who Goes, Who Stays When Contreras is Activated?

Jose Contreras may be available from the bullpen starting tomorrow. Photo: APJose Contreras completed back-to-back appearances for Class A Clearwater Thursday and Friday and could be activated soon, says Paul Hagen of Contreras, 40, threw in five games posting an 8.31 ERA striking out 7. Those numbers, no doubt, are a bit misleading. In his Thursday outing outing, Contreras...

West Coast Swing Will Tell Us About Phillies

The Phillies will see the new $35 million man Bumgarner in Game two. (US PRESSWIRE)At 4-5, this is hardly a deal-breaking series for the Phillies. Nine games won’t tell you much about how the season will go from start to finish. But I don’t think you can doubt that there is a good amount of importance resting on the west coast.The Phillies embark on a 10-game road trip through...

PhilliesNation Interview: OF Prospect Gauntlett Eldemire

In the early going this season, outfielder Gauntlett Eldemire has proven to be a catalyst for the Class A Lakewood BlueClaws. Sporting a remarkable .324/.439/.500 line along with a league leading 8 stolen bases and 11 runs scored through his first 9 professional games, the 23-year-old has helped the team get off to a 3-1 start to their first homestand.A 6th round draft choice in...

Philadelphia Phillies: 2012 ERA for the MLB 5 at game 10

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. TAL'S HANDY STATS   WELCOME, NEWCOMERS: 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...

Roy Halladay, In Relief of Roy Halladay

Given his excellence over the last decade, it’s become difficult to discuss Roy Halladay without merely descending into a list of superlative adjectives. Indeed, Roy Halladay posted the league’s best WAR (8.2) among pitchers last season. By WAR, he’s been the best pitcher over the last two years, as well. And last three years. And four years. And five. And six. And seven...

Seeing Phillies’ Roy Halladay pitch or My Personal Persuit of Perfection

The matchup was out there: Phillies’ Roy Halladay vs. Giants’ Tim Lincecum. The only problem is that the Phillies were embarking on a 10-day West Coast swing, and Monday’s contest would not start until 10:15 p.m. I had to make it an event. That’s right, late night road trip to see the game at the new XFinity Live, the site of the old Spectrum in Philadelphia. Smack dap next...

Phillies 8, Mets 2

Cole Hamels pitched seven strong innings and Ty Wigginton drove in four runs, leading the Philadelphia Phillies to an 8-2 win over the New York Mets on Sunday. Hamels (1-1) struck out 10 to help the Phillies avoid a three-game sweep at home against the Mets for the first time since June 13-15, 2006. It was the 19th career double-digit strikeout game for Hamels. As they have all...

Phillies Strike Early as Doc Shuts Down Giants

Halladay continued his early success. (AP)OFFENSE STRIKES EARLY-Big innings are the new black for the Phillies. On Sunday, they dropped five in the eighth inning on the Mets. On Monday night in San Francisco, they put up four in the opening inning, en route to a 5-2 win to open up the three-game series. It was a positive sign to see them jump on Tim Lincecum early and not let him...

Phillies jersey made from 3000 drink tabs

I’ve lived in Philly for about 15 years and I’ve definitely learned to never doubt the love Philadelphia fans have towards their sports teams. Thanks to Buzz Feed I came across another article about a fan showing how crazy he is about the Philadelphia Phillies. This fan made himself a jersey from 3,000 drink tabs and it’s pretty impressive. In my opinion, it looks more...

Phillies Take Game One, Giants Get Worked By Roy Halladay

Before I say anything, I’ll reiterate what I said in my series preview: I’m not worried about Tim Lincecum and today did nothing to change that. He’s not walking guys, he’s still getting swing-throughs, and today he was victimized by some God-awful defense behind him. So with that out of the way, let’s talk about the game. I refuse to worry until May, and I stand by that...

Ike Homers, But Phillies Avoid The Sweep With 8-2 Win Over Mets

Ike Davis got the Mets off to a quick start with this two run shot in the first inning off Cole Hamels to put the Mets up 2-0 over the Phillies this afternoon at CBP. But that would be all the scoring in the game for the Mets as they fell to Phillies 8-2 Mike Pelfrey started and tossed six innings while working himself in and out of trouble. Luckily, he allowed just one run after...
