Atlanta Braves: (32-22; Leader) The Braves have been surging, winning 9 in a row, and sweeping the Phillies. Troy Glaus and Martin Prado have been on fire lately. The Braves will head to Los Angeles to play the Dodgers for four. BTW: I started writing the NL East Report last June, and this is the first time that the Braves have had the designation “Leader.” Philadelphia Phillies: (28-24; -3) Epic Phail. The Phillies were swept [...]
Philadelphia Phillies: (28-21; Leader) The Phillies managed to take two out of three from the Marlins. They were shutout on Sunday, but the story of the weekend was Roy Halladay’s perfect game. There’s nothing more that I can say about it that hasn’t already been said on this site. The Phillies will play the Atlanta Braves in Atlanta with first place on the line. Atlanta Braves: (28-22; -.5) The Braves have been hot as of [...]
Philadelphia Phillies: (26-20; Leader) Well, the Phillies became the first league champion to get held scoreless during a sweep. They will head to Florida to try to get someone to cross the plate. They’ve been held scoreless in 46 of the last 47 innings. They are the only first-place team in MLB history to have been swept scorelessly (is that a word?) by the last-place team (at the beginning of the series the Mets were [...]
Philadelphia Phillies: (14-10; Leader) The Philadelphia Phillies took…well, you know what happened. The Phillies are set to open a three game series with the St. Louis Cardinals. Tuesday’s pitching matchup will be Adam Wainwright vs. Cole Hamels. Also, Joe Blanton may come back of the DL this week. Florida Marlins: (13-12; -1.5) The Marlins took two of three from the Washington Nationals on the strength of Hanley Ramirez’s two HR’s in the rubber game on [...]
Philadelphia Phillies: (12-9; -.5) The Phillies lost two of three to the San Francisco Giants, and the game that they won is a case to why pitch counts should be taken with a grain of common sense, On Wednesday, the Giants were leading 4-1 in the 9th with Tim Lincecum (who recorded 11 K’s) still going. Lincecum got the first out in the inning before giving up a walk to Shane Victorino. Lincy was then [...]
Philadelphia Phillies: (11-7; Leader) The Phillies dropped two of three to the Arizona Diamondbacks, and will head to San Francisco for a three game set with the Giants. Roy Halladay will start Monday against Jonathan Sanchez. Lincecum will start Thursday, likely against Cole Hamels. Florida Marlins: (10-9; -1.5) The Marlins dropped two of three to the Colorado Rockies, including a split of Saturday’s doubleheader, and will face the hot San Diego Padres. Jorge Cantu’s hit [...]
Philadelphia Phillies: (10-5; Leader) The Phillies took two out of three from the Atlanta Braves. However, they did lose JA Happ to the DL with a strained flexor in his left arm. JC Romero was activated, while Nelson Figueroa will take his spot in the rotation. The Phillies begin a six-game west coast road trip with three in Arizona. Florida Marlins: (9-7; -1.5) The Florida Marlins dropped two of three to the Houston Astros, and [...]
Seeing highlights of Nationals’ pitcher Stephen Strasburg from yesterday’s game against Detroit bummed me out just a little. I love watching great pitchers do their thing, and it’s especially exciting to see young pitchers like Strasburg break into the bigs and blow hitters away. But I’m just a bit bummed out, because he’s in the Mets’ division and will most likely be facing our team a lot over the next few years. I’m bummed out [...]
The Washington Nationals lost 103 games last season. It would have been worse had they not been saved by a season ending seven game winning streak. Their pitching was in chaos all season long. Relief pitchers blew 25 saves during the season. They had only one starter who made more than 19 starts. They have made several moves this winter, mostly investing in pitching. It’s a safe prediction that they will improve from last year’s [...]
