Not much else today, but here are some statistics:
Opposing home runs, MLB:
T1. Jamie Moyer, PHI – 10
T1. Brett Myers, PHI – 10
3. Jon Lester, BOS – 9
T4. Joe Blanton, PHI – 8
After Saturday, Joe Blanton’s ERA (6.82) is third worst in baseball. Jamie Moyer is in first (among those qualifying). Though they lowered the ERA slightly, the Phillies still carry one of the worst team numbers in baseball (5.22). With just nine quality starts, the Phillies are way back in last place in that category, with the Brewers doubling that number. The 53 home runs they’ve allowed are way back in last, despite playing the fewest games in baseball.
At this point, it’s only suitable to say this is all disturbing.
