Most staffs have mixed results from replacements for healing starters, but the Philadelphia Phillies with Jonathan Pettibone have been fortunate so far. How have the top west coast teams fared with temporary arms in their rotation? TAL’S HANDY STATS WELCOME, NEWCOMERS: I will publish the 2013 ERA for both the NL East and the MLB 5 periodically. The number of games played by the Phillies is in the headline at the end.

Please go to my author archives or the Phillies page for my most recent coverage. Scroll down to Tal’s Handy Links at the bottom. Thank you. Check out:  Philadelphia Phillies storyline: Destination revisited The new summer schedule will allow me to publish the best 3 storylines each week, but there will be an updated calendar included with each feature:  These posts involve commentary, polls and stats for the upcoming 7 days.

CSN Report: Phillies Continue to Puruse Stanton

According to Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com, the Phillies are still at it. They’ve made a few calls to Miami in an attempt to nab Giancarlo Stanton and will continue to pursue the 23-year-old rightfielder. Now, this should come as no surprise. Twenty-nine other teams should be doing the same thing, as he’s clearly the best young power hitter in baseball, when healthy. Ruben Amaro...

Phillies rumors: Will Philadelphia trade Cliff Lee?

If the Philadelphia Phillies fall out of contention in the National League East as the summer approaches, left-handed starting pitcher Cliff Lee could find himself as a prime trade target of teams with playoff aspirations.

Jimmy Rollins - on legacy and leading off

Jimmy Rollins is a legacy player for the Philadelphia Phillies. In a game where few stars play at a premium position such as shortstop and play it as well as he has, Rollins has had a great thirteen seasons.
