There haven’t been a lot of reasons to feel optimistic about the Phillies recently. From bullpen implosions to losing Chase Utley and Placido Polanco for the indefinite future to dropping three of four to the perennially meek Pirates (and I’m not talking about their lone All-Star representative), the Phillies have suffered the kind of body blows that normally put a contender on the mat.

But though they are staggering like Rocky Balboa in his first bout with Apollo Creed, the Phils still have their feet under them. And starting tonight, with a three-game series at the Bank against the resurgent Braves, they have a chance to quickly regain their balance and make up lost ground in the NL East. And not only that, but to kick off this all-important series, the Phillies have the man who is unquestionably their ace, Roy Halladay.

But as good as he is, Halladay is not immune to failure. And just like his teammates (and in large part because of them), Doc has fallen on hard times recently, losing four of his last five starts, most recently on a two-run, eighth-inning homer by Jay Bruce on Wednesday in a 4-3 loss after having been staked to a 3-0 lead. Following a dazzling 6-1 start to the season, Halladay has sunk to a confounding, and in many ways stunning, 9-7. But there are always other considerations, and in this case a major one is that in those four most recent losses, Halladay received a grand total of seven runs of support. Not exactly a lot to work with, even for a pitcher with a 2.42 ERA.

I don’t have any hard numbers, but since mid-May the Phillies have seemed to play more nervously when Halladay is on the mound. In that span, the offense has scored more than three runs just once (the 9-0 blowout against the Blue Jays in the “road” series at CBP) and the defense even has seemed to play with less efficiency (and with so many starters out, that likely will be the norm for a while).

So, yes, it is still early July and the All-Star Game has yet to be played, but plain and simple, these next three games are the most important of the season so far.

Phillies Lineup: Rollins SS, Victorino CF, Ibanez LF, Howard 1B, Werth RF, Dobbs 3B, Valdez 2B, Sardinha C, Halladay P

Hoegaarden

Your gameday beer: Ayinger Brau-Weisse

Ayinger Brau-Weisse pours a very light, golden color, and has a standard citrus and floral taste. The beer is slightly bland and is very dry, almost like champagne. It’s not hard to drink by any means. Ayinger, however, rarely disappoints. And it comes in a cool bottle, so there’s that.

Go Phillies!

    Wow first comment.
    I predict someohow Roy pitches a another perfect game but somhow the Phils lose.

  2. Greg

    July 5, 2010 at 6:02 pm

    Ugly lineup. At least Rollins is leading off. Ibañez shouldn’t be third, Valdez or Francisco should. Ibañez shouldn’t even be in the line up, actually. And whatever happened to Schneider feeling better? Oh well, I’ll take Ryan Sardinha’s homeruns. Maybe Dane Howard can start to hit some, too.

  3. Greg

    July 5, 2010 at 6:02 pm

    And yes, I mixed up their names on purpose.

  4. Ed R.

    July 5, 2010 at 6:04 pm

    I have a good feeling about tonight…

    Also, Drabek threw a No No in AA the other night.

  6. jeff

    July 5, 2010 at 6:25 pm

    We brought the good Doc in for this kind of game. WIN…..Raul is just becoming an expensive pinch hitter. Bring Little Brown up.

  7. Manny

    July 5, 2010 at 6:33 pm

    Ok so are we gonna win tonight or what! GO PHILS!!!!!!!!!

    It’s hot and Charlie calls it hittin’ weather. They need some bombs tonight.

    July 5, 2010 at 7:18 pm

    This is it Jeff. Either the Phils step up and play like champions or get ready for the October MLB also rans golf tournament.

    Braves look like they are ready to B-slap Roy. Gettin SMACKED.

  12. jeff

    July 5, 2010 at 7:24 pm

    we need a bomb by mr. howard.

  13. jeff

    July 5, 2010 at 7:26 pm

    boy when you look at the bottom of our order, you want to cry.

  14. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 5, 2010 at 7:27 pm

    The line up sucks I agree.
    Ibanez act I am tired of. Completely.

    Does the roadkill on top of Wheelers head ever show signs of life or movement? I heard he hit on the way over to the game.

  15. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 5, 2010 at 7:28 pm

    Try middle of the order.
    I have no problem with Valdez and Sardines the phils 2 best current hitters.
    They should be hitting 3 and 4

  16. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 7:30 pm

    On the bright side (?) Halladay has not thrown a ball yet – oops 1 ball 13 strikes

  17. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 7:33 pm

    A 10 pitch first inning, 9 pitch second inning.
    Is it a Halladay?

  18. jeff

    July 5, 2010 at 7:33 pm

    Here is the lineup I would like to see,

    D. Brown, Victorino, Rollins, Howard, Werth…that should be the top.

  19. jeff

    July 5, 2010 at 7:34 pm

    come on J.W.

  20. Realist

    July 5, 2010 at 7:35 pm

    Prediction. 2-1 loss. Halladay will request trade after the season.

  21. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 7:36 pm

    OK Jay – how about some Dobbs love here?

  22. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 5, 2010 at 7:36 pm

    LOL
    Request a trade

    and ill go with 1-0

    How would the Phillies possibly score a run? 4 base error by Lawrence?

  23. knowsall

    July 5, 2010 at 7:36 pm

    Remember, they have better players out of their lineup, than the Phils have out of theirs.

    No excuses.

  24. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 7:37 pm

    How about Jay taking this base?

  25. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 5, 2010 at 7:37 pm

    I love Greggy.

    He hit .132 when he went to the minors and was immediately brought back up.

  26. jeff

    July 5, 2010 at 7:38 pm

    HOLY COW. DOBBS…..Hey how bout Happ and a prospect for Lee.

  27. jeff

    July 5, 2010 at 7:39 pm

    thats the beauty of the sport andrew. you can be batting .132 and just get hot. the average doesnt matter.

  28. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 7:39 pm

    2 men on base, nobody out and Valdez up with Sardinha on deck

  29. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 5, 2010 at 7:40 pm

    .132 in the minors and .117 in the majors and its the 4th of july weekend.
    I’d call that a trend.
    But you are only as good or bad as your last at bat so to me Greggy is hitting 1.000

  30. Realist

    July 5, 2010 at 7:41 pm

    Its funny how everyone is bashing Ibanez and not saying anything about Werth? Since mid May, Ibanez has a better average than Werthless. Ibanez avg at least went up by abouth 10 pnts I think, while Werthless DROPPED 60 Points, maybe more.

  31. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 7:41 pm

    Moved the runners up, that will do.. just no DP, hit the ball in the OF

  32. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 7:42 pm

    At least it was not a DP

  33. jeff

    July 5, 2010 at 7:42 pm

    just hit the ball. its a run.

  34. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 5, 2010 at 7:43 pm

    Werth is not unnoticed by me. I still have some hope for Werth though. I have none for Ibanez.

  35. jeff

    July 5, 2010 at 7:44 pm

    oh man. thats terrible. just put the ball in play. lowe is not a strike out pitcher.

  36. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 5, 2010 at 7:44 pm

    Ball is 4 feet outside and the sardine sandwich swings.

    I guess Howard has been mentoring him.

  37. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 7:45 pm

    SOB, the last thing we needed

  38. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 7:45 pm

    OMG

  39. knowsall

    July 5, 2010 at 7:46 pm

    This inning’s subtitle:

    Why they are 5 games up on the Phils.

  40. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 7:47 pm

    Who did not see that coming

  41. knowsall

    July 5, 2010 at 7:47 pm

  42. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 7:48 pm

    Andrew, I think Howard, Werth and a few others might have been mentoring that Sardinha swing!

  43. knowsall

    July 5, 2010 at 7:48 pm

    nobody raises hand brooksie

  44. Realist

    July 5, 2010 at 7:48 pm

    Way to go WerthLESS. It SHOULD have been 1-1 on that pitch to get by the catcher.

  45. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 5, 2010 at 7:50 pm

    Trying to keep it funny tonight and not rant. I see the Phils will test that.

    Has the Phanatic being sued by a woman been brought up on this site yet?

  46. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 7:50 pm

    95 degrees out there. Upside? Lowe had to throw 25pitches that inning.
    Downside? Whenever the Phils blow a run opp (as we have seen many), the next half inning they give up what they coulda scored..

  47. jt

    July 5, 2010 at 7:53 pm

    They have no heart what’s so ever…a major change is need soon to light a fire under their ass…

  48. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 5, 2010 at 7:55 pm

    Why isnt there a Zambrano type of blow up?
    I dont care who does it. But someone besides the old man needs to melt down.

  49. jeff

    July 5, 2010 at 7:56 pm

    I know your going to say I am nuts but we will bash Lowe at some point.

  50. Realist

    July 5, 2010 at 7:57 pm

    I think the Phillies will fall below .500 and Charlie might get Canned.

  51. jeff

    July 5, 2010 at 7:59 pm

    and yet another dead inning. amazing.

  52. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 8:00 pm

    Probably not Realist – with Poly, Rollins, Utley injuries, he would get a pass especially since he brought us a WS ring – so, realistically, that aint gonna happen.

  53. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 8:00 pm

    3 up and 3 down, quickly too.

  54. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 5, 2010 at 8:01 pm

    I think Ibanez is the worst every day player in majors.
    Even the Royals and Orioles of the world bench a guy at this point.

    I mean trade for soeone or bring up Brown. Literally you couldnt be worse off. Eric Bruntlett as every day left fielder is preferable.

  55. Glutenous

    July 5, 2010 at 8:01 pm

    Anyone else feeling like the phillies will lose 1 – 0?

  56. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 5, 2010 at 8:02 pm

    They need a shake up. And if it isnt firing the manager then trade someone. Do something or there is no chance.

    Have I complained about the Howard contract yet tongiht?

  57. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 8:05 pm

    I really dislike McCann

  58. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 8:06 pm

    Comon Roy – K

  59. jeff

    July 5, 2010 at 8:07 pm

    i agree brook. i dislike him and chipper. never fans. outside of the phillies who is your fav player. i have to say jeter. just plays the game the right way. not to much bad stuff goes along with jeter.

  60. jeff

    July 5, 2010 at 8:08 pm

    take a picture…PERFECT

  61. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 8:09 pm

    That’ll do. Quick now, Georgie will be in from her gardening soon.. score dudes!

  62. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 8:11 pm

    Jeter is one of my favorites – I am starting to like what I see on the Rays too with Longoria – seriously – but Jeter has always done right plus, how could anyone argue with all the rings he has!

  63. jeff

    July 5, 2010 at 8:11 pm

    Take the singles but what happen to his power?

  64. jeff

    July 5, 2010 at 8:12 pm

    right on the money with that. Evan is going to be a big time player. Jeter is just the man. Utley is alot like him. The way they go about there job.

  65. jeff

    July 5, 2010 at 8:14 pm

    This is becoming painful to watch. Poor Doc.

  66. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 5, 2010 at 8:14 pm

    At least he hustled so it wasnt a DP
    I cant take another shutout.

  67. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 8:15 pm

    Right on the money with both posts, we need to see some power soon from Ryan.
    Jeter seems to give all he has every game and it shows.

  68. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 5, 2010 at 8:16 pm

    If Dobbs would have gotten tagged out there.
    Id be pissed.

  69. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 8:16 pm

    Just get them on base, sooner or later someone is going to start knocking them in (right guys??)

  70. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 8:19 pm

    Doc had his hit and RBI for the year – but, we can hope.

  71. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 8:21 pm

    Who saw that one coming? (oh, I said that before)

  72. joe444

    July 5, 2010 at 8:21 pm

    71 pitches already for Lowe. 42 for Doc.

  73. Glutenous

    July 5, 2010 at 8:22 pm

    So many times that the phillies have a chance to strike, its the pitcher spot up with 2 outs. So sick of it.

  74. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 8:28 pm

    Top of the lineup, time to make something happen here

  75. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 8:31 pm

    Just get the hell on base Jimmy!

  76. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 5, 2010 at 8:32 pm

    Brooks Robinson or Brooks from shawshank redemption?

  77. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 5, 2010 at 8:34 pm

    Every time I post here I have/get to look away from the abortion I mean game.

    I thank this site for that.

  78. Georgie

    July 5, 2010 at 8:34 pm

    ahhhhahahaha…. Brooks, I came in just as the Phillies loaded the bases! I’m going to watch “The Bachelorette”, and check on the game from time to time, maybe if I don’t watch they’ll score….

  79. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 8:37 pm

    Har har Andrew – I did watch Brooksie play though.
    Top of the lineup in deep sleep mode, again.

  80. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 8:40 pm

    Another xtra base hit – but with 2 outs

  81. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 8:42 pm

    Has Roy fallen behind any other batter?

  82. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 8:44 pm

    I can just hear Larry Bowa in the dugout; “Can’t you overpaide sons of b*%s get on base??”

  83. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 5, 2010 at 8:45 pm

    Its just pathetic and sad at this point.
    I paid direct tv for the baseball package to watch this.
    I wonder if they offer a refund or some compensation when its like going to the dentist every night.

  84. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 5, 2010 at 8:46 pm

    Thats a good idea. Bring Bowa in to manage for a week.
    Or Chef Gordan Ramsey.

  85. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 8:47 pm

    this is getting pretty boring

  86. joe444

    July 5, 2010 at 8:48 pm

    just got less boring

  87. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 5, 2010 at 8:49 pm

    Greggy does it

    now bullpen dont blow it

  88. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 8:49 pm

    Hey, another single by one of our sluggers!
    Please steal this base Jayson

  89. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 8:50 pm

    Dobbs? Lumber? Georgie, comon back you have to see this!

  90. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 5, 2010 at 8:50 pm

    My favorite player Greg Dobbs does it again!
    I’ve had his back all year.

  91. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 8:53 pm

    Lumber and Dobbs in the same sentence? Woooow!

  92. phillyboy

    July 5, 2010 at 8:53 pm

    i just had to stop by!!!go gregg dobbs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  93. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 8:58 pm

    Looking pretty sweet?

  94. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 9:06 pm

    I think Roy misses the DH.
    Jimmy, 0 for 4, 4 ground outs.

  95. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 9:07 pm

    Same with Vic – top of the lineup 2 for 14. Says it all.

  96. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 5, 2010 at 9:08 pm

    The phils need someone like Dobbs to get hot.
    Someone unexpected.
    I just hope the old man doesnt leave Roy in to long or the bull pen doesnt blow this.
    I cant take it. I know this team is still bad but just win an occasional game so the fans can feel good for a few hours.

  97. jeff

    July 5, 2010 at 9:11 pm

    what a throw to second.

  98. jeff

    July 5, 2010 at 9:11 pm

    doc is dealing. we go from 1 man on with 0 outs. to 2 outs and nobody on, within 10 seconds.

  99. ChuckS

    July 5, 2010 at 9:12 pm

    4 more outs, Roy!

  100. bureaucratist

    July 5, 2010 at 9:12 pm

    only 85 pitches for Halladay

    no bullpen!!!!

  101. ChuckS

  102. Andrew from Waldorf

    come on lets win this and get it rolling

  103. Andrew from Waldorf

    Chuck beware of the countdown!

  104. george

    July 5, 2010 at 9:14 pm

    i would have had more respect for Werth if he tried to go home and was thrown out, syas a lot about him and the club- no confidence, cannot play real baseball, no guts.
    Werth – what a pu_sy.

  105. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 9:15 pm

    I hate to be pessemistic (who me) but, I’d feel better with at least 1 more on the board

  106. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 5, 2010 at 9:15 pm

    Raul with the seeing eye single
    im feeling it

  107. psujoe

    July 5, 2010 at 9:16 pm

    Raul the ripper!

  108. jeff

    July 5, 2010 at 9:16 pm

    ryan goes boom.

  109. george

    July 5, 2010 at 9:16 pm

    time to bring in lidge so we can lose it.

  110. ChuckS

    July 5, 2010 at 9:16 pm

    Big Fly for Howard

  111. jeff

    July 5, 2010 at 9:17 pm

    george your wrong. if werth went home on that he would of been out. ball did not get away that far and lowe did a great job covering.

  112. psujoe

    July 5, 2010 at 9:17 pm

    It was meant to be tonight!

  113. jeff

    July 5, 2010 at 9:17 pm

    well he is hitting singles but 125 million dollars is for homers.

  114. psujoe

    July 5, 2010 at 9:18 pm

    Huge AB for Werth. Come on.

  115. jeff

    July 5, 2010 at 9:18 pm

    with the mets getting pounded, we would pick up a game on both..1 more inning for the good doc. to bad lee wasnt going tomorrow. just kidding.

  116. psujoe

    July 5, 2010 at 9:19 pm

    Bone headed play by the braves pitcher. We need this run.

  117. jeff

    July 5, 2010 at 9:19 pm

    good hustle by werth but it will be interesting how much money this season will cost him.

  118. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 9:19 pm

    at least 1 guys… at least!

  119. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 9:21 pm

    wait… dobbs has had his ONLY good game all season and he’s being subbed by Castro?

  120. jeff

    July 5, 2010 at 9:21 pm

    we need D brooks

  121. jeff

    July 5, 2010 at 9:22 pm

    only the phillies can screw that up. why the heck would you squeeze when the braves knew on the pitch before. charlie needs to go. my god.

  122. psujoe

    July 5, 2010 at 9:22 pm

    I missed most of the game. Why no pinch runner ofr Raul?

  123. jeff

    July 5, 2010 at 9:23 pm

    LUCKY. Charlie manages himself out of innings.

  124. Andrew from Waldorf

    July 5, 2010 at 9:23 pm

    Wow they blow it
    then get lucky
    Maybe the karma has changed

    amen

  125. ChuckS

    July 5, 2010 at 9:23 pm

    hooray

  126. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 9:25 pm

    Do you think someone is in the dugout saying, “Hmm, we got the lead, how can we screw this one up..” “I know, lets take Dobbs out and use Castro as a PH then, lets get our slowest runner to try and steal home.. that should do most of it..”
    Then lets put Lidge in the top of the 9th

  127. Brooks

    July 5, 2010 at 9:26 pm

    we got 1!

  128. jeff

    July 5, 2010 at 9:27 pm

    come on doc. 80 pitches, is that correct.

  129. jeff

    July 5, 2010 at 9:28 pm

    doc is just being FILTHY RIGHT NOW.

  130. jeff

    Now THIS is what I’m talking about.

    No one minds a blow-out, but with Halladay giving up only one run, there’s no need for a blow-out. Two-run game decided it and maybe the offense saved a little something for the embattled Hamels tomorrow night.

    Dobbs, I owe you an apology tonight.

    Werth and Ibanez coming up with some good stuff, with help from Howard, Valdez, and some filthy defensive work.

    Greg Dobbs still owes the fans an apology, we don’t owe him anything yet, maybe if he can his average over .200 I’ll consider it

    Big win tonight doc really showed up tonight in the biggest game of the season…offense should score more runs though lowe isn’t that good anymore…great to see dobbs finally come up with a big hit too…

    Fools gold. Rollins did nothing again on his relentless pursuit of the Mendoza line.

    Victorino’s lost year continues.

    Babysingles by Howard and Werth don’t cut it.

    Again,team’s just a compltee mess.

    Think they’ll get this kind of piching the next 2 games?

    Me neither.

    Excluding Halladay, this version of the Phillies does little to generate lasting confidence. However clutch wins in the midst of adversity make fools’ gold look real.

    A solid catcher is gold. Most managers today are ex-catchers. Take a look.
