Hyde burned his starting pitcher after one inning. That might end badly. Valaika could be the setup man.

Hate to crowd shame, but their women are ugly. Cedric might have 30th.

Nope. Ump fail.

New York umps are ugly.

Harper screwed up. Big dummy.

Re: No pitcher Phillies. - 22/09/2021 00:21

That was dumb as hell. Santander bounced the throw, and he was still hella out. Even tonight's umps saw that.

Finally found a fan who doesn't look like she eats from a nose-bag. The Akron pitcher is just murdering Bowie. Tomorrow is Grayrod, then we'll talk again.

I haven't seen anyone thrown out by that much since Treblehorn was the third base coach.

Harper thrown out again.This time at home plate. It would have given them the lead.

Re: No pitcher Phillies. - 22/09/2021 03:27

Why Valdez is pitching with the game on the line is beyond me. I truly thought they released that turd. I have given up trying to understand or "managers" reasoning. I haven't been around because I was off on a fishing trip and the wi-fi where I was staying sucked........and so was the fishing.

They just promoted him again. Truly, a hundred more competent relievers will be available this winter. Pick any one.

What really hurt was when Tate threw a two out, 0-2 count fastball right down the middle of the plate and it got smacked to drive in the tying run.

Re: No pitcher Phillies. - 22/09/2021 11:08

Tater Tate not all he was supposed to be, is he? The whole pen is probably fried to a crisp by now. Hard to tell the difference from here. Harvey is probably the suckest, with his non-stop parade of injuries, and his wasted draft pick.

Re: No pitcher Phillies. - 22/09/2021 22:29

Tonight's lineup looks like the weakest yet.

Cedric Mullins CF
Ryan Mountcastle 1B
Austin Hays RF
Pedro Severino C
Ryan McKenna LF
Pat Valaika 2B
Richie Martin SS
Kelvin Gutierrez 3B
Keegan Akin LHP

Rained here (2 hours west) all day.

Thunderstorm here as I type. Directv is out.

Re: No pitcher Phillies. - 22/09/2021 23:07

Orioles lining up for the kickoff. I can't find Bowie playing.
Posted By: BaseBawl

Re: No pitcher Phillies. - 22/09/2021 23:10

Bowie, delayed start. Maybe they're not aware of my bedtime.

Re: No pitcher Phillies. - 22/09/2021 23:37

McKenna can run. That was not a rumor.

Re: No pitcher Phillies. - 22/09/2021 23:48

Grayrod gave up two in the first inning. The legend fades.

Re: No pitcher Phillies. - 22/09/2021 23:49

Also, we were tied with Arizona for most horrible as of this morning.

Re: No pitcher Phillies. - 23/09/2021 00:16

Gunnar hit one out. 2-1, prophylactic ducks.
Posted By: BaseBawl

Re: No pitcher Phillies. - 23/09/2021 00:42

Grayrod sucked. Didn't make 3 innings.

Akin has a shutout for 5. Nice job.

Both teams offense has been shutdown this series.

Re: No pitcher Phillies. - 23/09/2021 10:14

Akin's last 6 starts have seen a 4.02 ERA.ERA still horrible overall but has gone down steadily.

Re: No pitcher Phillies. - 23/09/2021 10:32

Yeah. That feels pretty good for next year. Not much else in the pitching realm does. I'm getting kind of sick of playing for 1st pick. Get some decent journeymen pitchers.

Re: No pitcher Phillies. - 23/09/2021 11:14

Agree that they owe us a decent team in 2022.Bring up Rutsch and Rodriguez for Opening Day I hope they trade Mancini and a throw-in or two for a couple decent SP or pitching prospects. Sign a couple of vet, reasonably reliable bullpen guys, a #4 vet starter and also a stopgap third baseman-hopefully better than last time.I think we have enough to cover middle infield.

I believe the farm w/produce a couple of guys during the year and allow us to trade off the vets we signed.

Re: No pitcher Phillies. - 23/09/2021 13:43

In 3 years, the farm will be the position players.
Posted By: BaseBawl

Re: No pitcher Phillies. - 23/09/2021 13:47

I'd be surprised if Grayson starts the year in Baltimore. Either way, they need arms. Just to cover the innings, they'll need arms.

My jury is deliberating on Westie, and suspicious of Gunnar.

Me too. Gunnar is a strikeout machine.
Posted By: BaseBawl

Re: No pitcher Phillies. - 23/09/2021 20:19

He's young, but still....If you're going to strike out, you'd better slug like Kingman the rest of the time.

I love Mountcastle since he was weaned, but his strike zone judgement and swing mechanics are kinda scary. It's Dave Winfield's swing, grafted on Adam Jones' batting eye.

That clip that Kjerstaadt whatever posted of himself in the cage the other day, had me salivating. BP pitch, but his swing is like an aircraft carrier launch catapult. Short, tight, and powerful.

Re: No pitcher Phillies. - 23/09/2021 21:08

I'm wondering if Gunnar will end up as a platoon/utility player. The last time I saw the stats, he doesn't hit lefties well. Mountcastle seems to have shown some improvement in his pitch selection, he still has a ways to go though. I think he'll get better with more experience.

Stowers will have to come up pretty quickly.

Re: No pitcher Phillies. - 24/09/2021 12:51

Hays and Mountcastle are much alike as hitters. They put up monstrous games and show tremendous hitting and power. Some of their game performances are highlight reals. Yet their BA's stay consistently down which tells you something. They still don't command the strike zone-not yet.
