Well, Wheler looks good, eh.
The Phillies won the first game of the Marlins series and the last game of the Red Sox series. Both wins were Wheeler’s starts. They went from 21-20 to 23-24. Four games against the Marlins this week then two in Tampa after a rare Friday off day.
Looks like centerfield is no longer a problem, for now. When do we start second-guessing not starting the season with him in centerfield?
We picked up a pitcher off the waiver wire, RHP Brady Lail from the Mariners. Ramon Rosso was DFA-ed.
I saw a lot of negative comments regarding Spencer Howard’s reason for “hitting the wall” with velocity after two innings. Unwarranted comments. He made the rookie mistake of trying to provide an explanation for something that wouldn’t be understood and would be taken the wrong way. He doesn’t realize yet that the simple fact that his velocity dropped was enough for the haters to come unglued. The fact that the explanation allowed unathletic people to question his physical shape was a bonus for the haters. He even took responsibility for not dawdling in the dugout like a veteran would have. Yet, the haters hate. It’s been a long time since my “athletic” days. I can remember the adrenaline rush in a lot of situations. I couldn’t control it either. Fortunately, I sucked, so the drop-off in the result wasn’t noticeable. I don’t know if that happened here. I haven’t read and I’m not going to go back and read our Comments Section.
