There are only a few elite aces in the majors like Cliff Lee of the Philadelphia Phillies. What other divisional hurlers are in that group? 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: The core plus one more 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. Post time is 5 to 9 pm for the days listed below. May 2 to May 8 A wild-card feature will be published at times. Any schedule changes and holdups will be posted at Tal’s Handy Caps on Facebook.

May 8 Twice a Week   Zimmermann Dials up a 4-seam Fastball during the 1st at Home on April 26 against the Reds.     Top Performance: Jordan Zimmermann       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 start. 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 studs that give the relievers a well deserved night off, but there is a rust factor due to lack of back-end chances. Note:  All old ERA tables are automatically updated.   Top Performances: This table includes the stats through 4/30 with daily updates. There were no top performers on missing 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...
