Most staffs typically have a significant drop-off after their one and two, but the Philadelphia Phillies with Kyle Kendrick have a strong four. How do the top rotations in the other divisions fare in that respect? TAL’S HANDY STATS WELCOME, NEWCOMERS: I will publish the 2013 ERA for both the NL East and the other divisional staffs periodically. The number of games played by the Phillies is in the headline at the end. If you’re interested in checking out something different, my storyline articles–by design–represent a baseball man’s thinking, the view from the dugout and the GM’s box. 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. There will be new storylines after I solve my visibility issues.  There are more details at Tal’s Handy Caps on Facebook (link below). Check out:  Philadelphia Phillies story-poll: Suds or studs, battle scars   Bumgarner Loads a Bullet on June 14 in Atlanta.   Top Performance: Madison Bumgarner         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 stats through 6/19 with daily updates. There were no top performers on missing days.

Howard Changing the Conversation?

The Big Piece is showing signs of his 2009 form. Photo by: Ian Riccaboni Pop quiz: Over the last seven days, which Phillie has led the team in on-base percentage? How about the last 14 days? 30 days? If you guessed Ryan Howard, you cheated. Or figured it out by reading the title. Over the last 30 days, Howard has reached base at a nearly .400 clip (.398), good for 17th in the MLB...

Philadelphia Phillies Activate John Lannan, Disable Jeremy Horst

The Philadelphia Phillies have activated left-handed starter John Lannan from the 15-day disabled list after having missed two months due to a strained left quad. The 28-year-old will return to the Philadelphia rotation. To make room on the active roster for Lannan, the Phillies have placed left-handed reliever Jeremy Horst on the 15-day disabled list due to a left elbow strain....

Jonathan Papelbon, Cliff Lee ‘Absolutely Not’ on Trade Market, According to Phillies GM Ruben Amaro Jr.

While the Philadelphia Phillies struggle to achieve even a winning record, speculation persists that Cliff Lee and Jonathan Papelbon will be available before next month’s non-waiver trade deadline. That’s not necessarily the case. “Absolutely not, because these are guys I’d be better off having on my club than not,” Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. told The Associated...

Chase Utley plays rehab game with Double-A Reading

Philadelphia Phillies' second baseman Chase Utley played in his first rehab game last night since injuring his right oblique during batting practice on May 20. As reported by Stephen Pianovich of MLB.com, "Utley, a five-time All-Star, went 0-for-4, but put some good swings on the ball and looked comfortable in the field. Since the injury, Utley has repeatedly said...

2nd Place!!!

*The Phillies are actually closer to the NL East leader than the 2nd Wild Card.*The NL East is the worst division in baseball. *Kevin Frandsen should have been starting at 2nd base all along, not Freddy Galvis.  I wonder if he could play right field once Utley returns.   *Ryan Howard has his batting average up to .276 and a climbing .796 OPS as well.*It's not fair that Cole...

Just Because...

Found this little piece of pop art featuring the Big Piece (see what I did there) and felt the need to post it.  Currently the Phillies are being shutout by the Nationals.  Whatever.  Ryan Howard everyone...Meanwhile, Chooch is back in the lineup and Steve Lerud is back in AAA (where he belongs permanently). Also, Jeremy Horst was sent to the DL yesterday when John Lannan was activated.

Hitless During Rehab Assignment, Chase Utley Could Return To Phillies Tonight

Phillies sign first pick J.P. Crawford

The Phillies were able to get first round pick J.P. Crawford to sign for a bonus right at the slot value, giving them a little bit of wiggle room for other signings. Crawford is a high school shortstop out of Lakewood, California.

The Chooch Train Rides Back Into Town: Carlos Ruiz Activated From Disabled List

Ian Desmond hit a grand slam in the 11th inning and the Washington Nationals beat the Philadelphia Phillies 6-2 Wednesday night, avoiding a three-game sweep.

Starters Kyle Kendrick and Gio Gonzalez both...

Phillies rumors: Not trading Jonathan Papelbon, Cliff Lee

It's clear that middling teams playing in larger markets tend to be more hesitant to truly blow things up and turn their attention to the future (the Houston Astros being an outlier). According to Peter Gammons, this will seemingly have an impact on whether or not the Philadelphia Phillies trade starting pitcher Cliff Lee and closer Jonathan Papelbon this summer, something...

Mets-Phillies Preview

Wins haven't been easy to come by for Philadelphia's Cole Hamels, but he got the best of the New York Mets earlier this season. Manager Terry Collins' club has generally struggled in the series of late. Hoping to avoid becoming the majors' first 11-game loser, Hamels tries to lead the Phillies to a sixth consecutive win over the visiting Mets in Friday night'...

Five reasons the Cardinals DON’T need Jonathon Papelbon

Earlier this week, a Boston-based baseball writer speculated in his column that the Phillies believe that St. Louis might be interested in Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon. Mind you, there was no real substance behind his assertion, but it made the usual rumor-mill rounds all the same. This move would make no sense for the Cardinals, and here are five reasons why: 1) Salary. Papelbon...
