The Phillies will recall Jonathan Pettibone from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to start Monday against the Pirates. Pettibone is taking John Lannan's spot in the Phillies' rotation. The 22-year-old right-hander has a 3.44 ERA over parts of six seasons in the minors. With Lannan expected to miss 6-8 weeks, Pettibone is worth a flier in NL-only leagues.
this is a mindf***, just read it twice to realize it doesnt say Papelbon
Really looking forward to Webster's start tonight. His stuff was amazing during spring training and reportedly during the early minor league season. He will be going back down tonight after the game, but this start will hopefully give a glimpse of the future.
"I do not think baseball of today is any better than it was 30 years ago... I still think Radbourne is the greatest of the pitchers." John Sullivan 1914-Old athletes never change.
Andrew Miller can't throw strikes, this is ugly. Every time I watch him pitch I think "Damn, this guy has some heat, and a nasty slider". Then he walks in a run with the bases loaded and 2 out in the 10th inning
Herrera also was dealing. 2 shutout innings, 3 Ks, and the walk was intentional. Blowing 99 MPH heat right by Napoli, still got the nasty change... man, it's too bad Holland turned things around.
