Here’s an open discussion thread so the minor league posts don’t get cluttered with Phillies’ talk and other topics.
After 19 games, Papelbon has made 7 appearances, 6 games finished (4 saves, 2 others). He gave up his first earned run of the season today.
Some other random stuff to light the fire –
- Chase Utley .121/.206/.224/.430 (worst among Phillies’ starters)
- Phillies .214/.272/.323/.594 (worst in NL)
- The Cardinals’ Adam Wainwright could miss the rest of the season after suffering an Achilles injury.
- The Tigers’ Joe Nathan will undergo surgery for a torn ulnar collateral ligament and a tendon in his right elbow and miss the rest of the season.
- The Red Sox starting rotation has a 5.77 ERA (Kelly 4.08, Bucchholz 4.84, Masterson 5.16, Porcello 6.48, Miley 8.62).
