for the most part I'm overjoyed at how they are playing, Porcello pitched well enough to win that game friday, wright has been unbelievable and offense is great, much better than i thought.   i'll take it, but 31 million for an ERA over 6 isn't gonna cut it, Price has me a bit worried, he better not be hurt

I think we way overspent for Price, I still would have rather had Greinke.

I think Arizona feels the same way right now. Greinke isn't exactly repeating his stellar year out there.

overspending is relative, if he was performing I would be fine, I mean if Porcello pitched last year like he is now noone would have questioned the contract, to me it's all monoply money but if you are gonna spend it you better get something for it.  I have faith he will turn it around and be a decent pitcher but nobody is worth 30 million a year.

 well with the way  bartolo colon can hit and pitch, maybe he is but nobody else tongue


we've seen him a lot lately and they make fun of him so much but in an admirable sort of way. Like his warm up tosses - he just lazily throws it once or twice, then done. He doesn't like to use any unnecessary energy lol2

it's a good thing the Sox can hit, Bucholz was back to the "other than the homerun and solid double I gave up to lead off inning, I felt pretty good' speech. yeah other than the 4 runs in five innings , with runs in the 1st,2nd and 3rd innings, you pitched well for 2 innings facepalm

Just once I'd like to hear him say, I sucked again tonight 36 , I have to do better than that, everyone else is playing well and I can't be the guy who isn't I have to do better

So the Nats locked up Strasberg - 7 years with deferred money and opt outs of course.

With all the salary deferrals once this run is over they should be hamstrung for a few years. Half of their budget is going to be towards long gone players.

1-1/2 games out of first. I want them to get there if only for a day; just so they can say they climbed over the Mets and Nats to do it.

We're playing the Braves then the Reds so we have a great chance to get all the W's we need this week. Hopefully we'll get the Reds back for that 0-4 they gave us to open the season.

they have been playing great blondie i know it's a long season, but getting off to a good start especially with a young team means alot!!


the sox are "tearing the cover off the ball)

they have like 185 runs scored already this year. I think it was like July before they got that far last year


And we got another good performance from our pitching staff, a six inning stint from Sean O'sullivan, with no walks. gave up a few runs but from a relative nobody it's better than expected.

Maybe he can give a few pointers to Bucholz on how to pitch tongue


what, Sullivan wasn't Irish enough, they had to tack on an O' to it lol2

Buzz about bringing up tommy Joseph is getting louder. He's the guy was got for hunter pence. It looked like a lost trade for us. But he's learning first base and hitting for power. They have to make some kind of move and I don't see a trade happening.

Is that the same o'sullivsn that pitched for us?

I'm pretty sure it is. 3 games 40 runs scored, 48 hits!!!

Oakland is terrible but still, they are supposed to be a major league team, giving up 40 runs and 48 hits in 3 games is unexcusable

now Houston is coming to town for a 4 game stint. I'm worried though, we have the bottom of our staff Price and Bucholz to start the series leg

If we just had a real ace we would be great

They can easily out slug Houston, even with the bottom of the staff pitching.

the way they are hitting they can outslug anybody, it's really nice to see JBJ doing it, Shaw doing it, hell everyone is hitting, tough to beat a team that has 8 strong hitters in the lineup

I can't see this production lasting all year but if they can consistently score runs I'll be happy. for the first time in a long time I am not worried when they get down by a run or two, last year if they gave up a run in the first 2 inning I was like Well there goes that game

much better performance from price, though he was a little shaky in the first 2, he rebounded nicely. and the sox had an off night at the plate and could only manage 11 runs last night. tongue

and Tommy Joseph is being promoted; just in time to start against some left handed pitching. Here's hoping that he hits both handed pitchers so we can get some production at 1B. Howard can pitch hit from time to time.

bye Ruf. I was rooting for you but the .170 ave isn't helping your cause

6-1 homestand, 7 games 71 runs 103 hits, more than 10 runs and 14 hits per game and it took heroics in extra innings on saturday and a misplayed ball in the 7th leading to 2 runs on sunday to win the games ?

yes the offense has been PlayStation good, but the pitching over the weekend, and the defense on Sunday was atrocious.

still they keep finding ways to win


I'm looking forward to seeing Erod or kelly...or both in the rotation soon.

and papi is indeed the BEST clutch hitter ever, he single handedly willed them to a win on Saturday, driving in the tying run in the ninth and the winning run in the 11th, not mention a homer earlier in the game.

we didn't complete the sweep of the Reds but we did take the series. The Nats and Mets lost too so we stay 1 freaking game behind for 1st.

We play the Marlins tonight - hopefully we'll just continue to take series.

And I want to climb over those stupid Nats for 1st.

that's all I look for
win 2-3 3-4 even splitting a four gamer is Ok with me if over all you win 58-605 of your games you will have a great season.

as well as the red sox played last week, the frigging orioles kept pace with them

I think we've only lost 2 series this season so far - the first one with the Reds and we went down 1-3 against the 4 games with the Cards.

Madden cracks me up getting his guys to dress up for road trips. Keeps them loose, not that they have anything to be uptight about these days.

I know its stupid to watch the standings and I know we won't be in it all season but I WANT FIRST PLACE AGAIN DAMN IT!

it's much easier to look down at the standings than to look up.

How come it doesn't mean much when you are on top this time of year but it's the end of the world if you are in last place now???


I mean we are 2 weeks from memorial day if you are in last place then you are screwed, and better start making some moves according to everyone but if you are on top there's a lonnng way to go, and you shouldn't be too excited about it!!!!

For us Phillies fans it means a lot as we're supposed to be tanking. Not rebuilding, but tanking :| * I don't personally believe this - to me the Astros were tanking - they just kept being in last place year after year. The Phillies have spent millions buying better prospects - we're not in last place in order to draft #1 every year. They're trying to get back in it as soon as possible. *



Realistically they just don't have the offense to keep it going this season and my brain keeps telling my heart this. On the other hand, we're a 1/4 of the way in and we're in it - and not just a wild card spot. We have I think the 5th or 6th best record in the MLB. Any other team in baseball would be buyers with our record.

I know it's not worth it now with all the new guys working their way up. But still...... it's hard to not get excited. I don't even think the players know what's happening.

the best part of both of our teams is the amount of young talent. we have five starters making less than a million a year, not including pitchers yeah we have a huge payroll, but the guys that are out there every day making a huge impact are young and controllable for years. betts, Bogarts, vasquez JBJ, Shaw are all gonna be here for awhile....well if they don't trade them to pick up a starter or overpriced veteran

I don't expect them to keep hitting like they have been, but they are not all going to have a prolonged slump at the same time so I am very happy with what i've been watching.

our bad offense is really bad - like under .200 bad

At least last year bad as about .220

Cody Asche will still have a shot once off the DL - he normally hits about .250 - it will feel like Christmas with him back in the lineup.

FIRST FUCKING PLACE woooo (kind of - we have the most wins in the division but the Nats played 2 less games so their winning % is higher)

of course this may only last until tonight when the Nats play but if they LOSE then 1st is ours alone at least until tomorrow stache

QWright pitched well enough to win, and price had another quality start, split the doubkleheader. the next couple of weeks is gonna be tough, after a homestand with cleveland and colorado coming in, they have 10 games, 7 on the road against Toronto and Baltimore.uh

So the Nats won so we're 1/2 game behind again - lets all root for the Mets tonight. Then we'll go into the weekend tied for 1st.

We face the Braves so that should be a good series for us. I know we have the Nats again soon - I hope we continue to progress. That's the good news - we've been winning without an offense. But some of these guys are starting to figure it out. If the dominoes fall in the right direction, we may very well stay in it for a while.

It's been a much better season so far than anyone dreamed.

Well the weekend didn't go quite as planned, losing 2of 3 to a team they should have swept. They didn't lose any ground though.

The offense made an appearance so maybe that will continue as they head to Detroit.

The sox, other than the waste that Bucholz has become, had an awesome return of joe Kelley, taking a no hitter into the 6th inning, and a good performance from porcello and the bullpen to take 2 of 3. back home and hitting again. Hopefully they take 3 from the rockies before a difficult strech of 7 on the road against Baltimore and toronto, then baltimore back in fenway. 10 games aginst the strongest teams in the AL east will tell me alot about his team. if they split them 5-5 I'll be happy, hopefully they end up winning more than they lose. i gotta tell ya, they are no doubt a good team, this week will tell just how good


right now they have 7 players with an OPS of over .800 in the starting lineup. I think that means they can hit.

Detroit isn't being nice to us. We're not getting blown out which is nice but our lack of offense is disturbing.

the only good news is that it's starting to look like they may delegate Howard to a bench role. His average is down to about .150

His would-be replacement, Tommy Joseph, is looking good though.

and has a $10 million buyout for next season facepalm Amaro screwed us royally on this one.

They should have released him in the off season. Now they're faced with letting go a franchise icon in the middle of the season. By keeping him, it's just making people hate him and forget that he carried us to the World Series. It's a shame. And it's really tough to watch.

and has a $10 million buyout for next season facepalm   Amaro screwed us royally on this one.  

They should have released him in the off season.  Now they're faced with letting go a franchise icon in the middle of the season.   By keeping him, it's just making people hate him and forget that he carried us to the World Series.  It's a shame.  And it's really tough to watch.

how old is he anyway??

just mashin 10-3, JBJ 29 game hitting streak, Bogaerts 18 game hitting streak. wright pitched into the 8th, really clicking right now. Crapshoot game tonight with Bucholz on the mound they will need another 7-10 runs I suspect but they are as complete a team right now as the anyone in the majors, averaging more that 6 runs a game at home helps, but the pitching has been pretty good overall with a 2.78 ERA the last 20 or so games

We salvaged one from the Tigers. All in all it wasn't a bad series. With the sluggers Detroit has it could have been a blood bath. My young pitchers held up well. And we scored 8 runs to boot.

It will be interesting seeing how they respond with Joseph anchoring the lineup instead of Howard as we do have some guys capable of hitting. Franco should benefit greatly - he's been pressing trying to hit everything out of the yard. Maybe he can relax with another power guy hitting behind him. (Howard to the bench is technically still under debate but the general consensus is that they will move on with Joseph as the everyday 1st basemen starting with the next series).

of course I've heard about JBJ but I'm afraid Bogaerts has been overshadowed - I haven't heard a peep about his streak. Both excellent accomplishments. yay

yeah they are both doing great, Bogaerts is leading the league in hits right now, JBJ is leading in avergae, hell the whole team is hitting.  our #9 hitter swihart, a guy who started the season as the starting catcher, was converted to a left fielder and had 2 triples last night.  that's the 2nd time this season the number 9 hitter has hit 2 triples this year leg


They could use 1 more solid starter, and hopefully EROD comes back and and fulfills that, or Joe kelley, and they could use 1 more reliable fireballer in the bullpen to take some stress off the guys there now, but really they should be able to win boatloads of games just with thier offense.  I can't see all 9 guys going into a slump for any length of time and even if they can score 6-7 runs instead of the 8-10 they have been, they will win alot of games.

I am starting to think they may be a really good team, they have young hungry talent and more in the wings waiting to come up.

I know they will be trading some of their prospects come June/July, but have a good core that is under control for the 5 years or more.

It's been as long a road for your team as mine. We're getting there.

considering where both of our teams were last year, it has been a bit of surprise anda welcome one

To be honest, I am just as impressed with Philly as I am with the sox, they have turned things around a bit more than i thought they would. yes you could use a stronger lineup, but for where they were last year to now, it's been impressive.
