    I know it is his first game and all, but would it not be better for Dom to bat in front of the good hitters, so that he would have a better chance of seeing fastballs, why not bat him second, I am not saying they are going to pitch around the kid in his first game, but with Raul heating up and Ryan on a tear, you would think they would have to throw strikes to Dom in the 2 hole. I know you do not want to put pressure on the kid but isn’t batting 6th just as much pressure, and having Chooch and Wilson Valdez batting behind you that would allow their pitcher to see if the Kid will chase balls out of the strike zone.
    This team is going to need JRoll back sooner than later, he needs to play after these two games against the snakes. It is the Nationals right, he needs to play in that series even if he is not 100%, it is not like he is going to cause any more damage to the toe, it is not like a pulled muscle, I know it hurts and he might lose some range. And most of you do not think he is a lead off guy, but he is our lead off guy.
    Good luck tonight Dom how about you hit a dinger in your first at bat that would be cool

    I have picked him up in fantasy.
    Is starting tomorrow.
    Re: the nationals
    No shot the jeopardize Strassburg we wont see him this weekend. But on the down side I bet they shut him down for the year.

    D. Brown is the only phillie I have. People over value the phils in the fantasy drafts.

    I read your post about Lilly Pat. You mentioned an upgrade over Happ. I hope you do not mean trading Happ in that deal. NO WAY would the PHILLIES DO THAT. Ruin Jr. is not that stupid. To give up a guy like Happ for a rent a player. Lilly is a free agent.

     
  • Posts: 0 Andrew from Waldorf

    Lilly has very good stuff and going from a perenial loser to a winner would do him very good.
    Id trade Happ for him.

    Doc is just plain nasty…Just a hall of fame pitcher.

    Roy is just to good

    you would trade happ for a player that will be here for two months. are you nuts. happ is not going for lilly. oswalt yes.

    Best pitcher the Phils ever had. Right there with Lefty

    I dont like the amount of innings
    Hes on pace for career high
    need to take out when you can.

    i’ve been lurking on this site (when it’s UP – sheesh oh man) and love the chatter. in honor of D Brown’s super awesome debut so far i decided to get in to the mix! love chooch – super clutch, what a great at bat, so glad polly didn’t strand him on third…. when j roll is back and shane, does that mean we can bench valdez?!? he is worse than useless at the plate.

    shut the F up guys — enjoy the game — Oswalt? Happ? come on guys — have a beer and enjoy this.

     
  • Posts: 0 Andrew from Waldorf

    Philly fans highly over rate Happs value. I know its what fans do.
    What do you guys see Happ as? Hes 27 and has 14 career wins.
    I love him and am not really disrespecting him. More saying some fans really think hes worth more than he is. Hes Bob Walk.

    not overrating happ. happ is a nice pitcher with some bad luck with injuries. pitched great last year. your going to give him away for an average lilly. for two months.

    So Roy now leads the league in K’s and is in second in ERA, inching really close to the lead in WHIP as well. Is he officially back in the CY discussion?

    No way happ for Lilly unless Lilly agreed to an extension. You trade happ for Lilly you need 2 starters next year. Happ only goes for a pitcher with 2+ years on his contract.

     
  • Posts: 0 Andrew from Waldorf

    Id take lilly for a few years. Hes really good really good stuff

    LOL @ ledge

    somehow I never thoguht of that before

    Jeff,

    The site is great, the hosting company is terrible. They are correcting that, hopefully soon.

     
  • Posts: 0 Andrew from Waldorf

    Halladay was ever out of the Cy Young convo?

    He may be leading I think Wainwright had a bad outing and the Colorado dude is really coming back to reality

    Jeff, I said Lilly would be a very slight upgrade. And maybe not even that. Happ would probably be better in the long run because he’s cheaper.

    Jayson Werth is on fire

    It is fun warching the phils lately

    But all this talk of Juan Bell. He made Steve Jeltz look like Babe Ruth

    Yea when they make the site better hopefully
    we can have a name and others cant use it

     
  • Posts: 0 ChuckS

    Dom Brown is the man

     
  • Posts: 0 riccaboni

    Josh Johnson has always been tops in the Cy Young race, IMO, but now that Halladay leads in K’s, has more innings, CGs, SHOs, his WHIP and ERA are inching closer to Johnson, etc. Ubaldo, I never thought he really had a chance because other than wins, he really wasn’t tops in any of the other categories.

    Halladay have a leash tonight?

    Dom Brown is the best addition we could have made. Watch out Atlanta! Can’t wait to hit up the game tomorrow and watch the Phillies mash!

    Are they selling #9 jerseys yet?
