Just like when I started Lincecum against the Braves I think this is the type of matchup that heavily favors a pitcher who can be wild at time. The Phillies other than Utley are the type of team that will get themselves out on bad pitches so if you are a little bit wild it can actually help you at times. These types of offenses eat up guys with bad stuff but struggle against guys with good stuff but poor command.
