The Mets took Phillies rookie B.J. Rosenberg to school last night as they roughed him up for 4 runs in the 10th inning. The Mets went on to win and Rosenberg went back to the clubhouse sporting a 12.66 ERA.
As he entered the clubhouse, Rosenberg must have been given a “Baseball for Dummies” book as a gift. Because in his post-game comments, he told reporters, “Everything was up. It’s pretty simple, you make really bad pitches to good hitters and you’re going to get in trouble.” So it has taken 5 years in the minors, 13 games and 15 earned runs allowed in the majors and a beating by the Mets to figure that out? I really hope he reads the entire book…
Ok, I am picking on the poor kid, I know. He is still learning. But in the meantime, it is frustrating to see a kid with a 95mph fastball tossing it right over the middle of the plate when he knows better.
Vance Worley had a lot of trouble too, allowing 4 runs in only 4 1/3 innings. Why is Worley still pitching? He has bone chips in his ...
BEST OF MAXIM
A very excited and nervous Tyler Cloyd took the mound for the Phillies last night. His major league debut would eventually end in a 3-2 loss to the Mets, but the rookie was still happy just to be there.
With Vance Worley finally put on the DL and expected to have elbow surgery, Cloyd will get a few more shots at a win. He told reporters, “It’s an awesome feeling that they’re...
Earlier tonight, Reading Phillies OF Darin Ruf hit his 37th home run of the season. The home run tied him with Ryan Howard for the single-season record at Reading. The Reading Phils ended up winning the game against the Binghamton Mets, 12-5.
After the game, Ruf was given the old shaving cream treatment by his teammates.

Jimmy Rollins' latest jog toward first earned him a spot where he won't have to hustle.
On the bench.
Rollins was benched after a pair of baserunning blunders Thursday in Philadelphia's 3-2 win over the New York Mets. It was the second time in two weeks the 2007 NL MVP was scolded for not hustling on the basepaths.
Rollins was pulled for the start of the seventh inning...
Darin Ruf 2012 Reading Phillies- .316/1.023, 88 R, 145 H, 31 DBL, 35 HR, 95 RBI.
He leads all of minor league baseball in homeruns, is 3rd in OPS, and is close to cracking the top 10 in RBI. He’s done all this in the Double-A Eastern League that is regarded as having very fair parks (not hitter friendly like the Texas League or Pacific Coast League). Ruf is not considered a...

I understand everyone’s desire to try their best to extend the career of Chase Utley. I’ve heard the suggestions, like everyone else has, for the past couple of years. “Put him in the outfield.” “Try him at first.” Aside from the obvious 250 pound issue at first in Ryan Howard, some of the suggestions made some sense.
