2010 Gameday

Los Angeles Dodgers (59-54) at Philadelphia Phillies (62-50)

Chad Billingsley, RHP (9-6, 3.82 ERA) vs. Roy Oswalt, RHP (6-13, 3.50 ERA)

Time: 7:05 p.m at Citizens Bank Park

When the Dodgers hang a 15-spot on the Phillies, there isn’t a whole lot to feel too good about. But the way the Phillies allowed most of those runs is even more troubling.

Forget that Kyle Kendrick didn’t make it out of the fourth inning. KK had put together three very good starts in a row, and last night was an example of what common folk call “the law of averages” and math majors refer to as “regression to the mean.” Plain and simple, he was due to get hit around, and did he ever against the Dodgers.

Over the course of a 162-game season, any team’s fifth starter is going to give up plenty of runs and have more than a few bad nights. After all, that’s why he’s the fifth starter. Injuries notwithstanding, the Phillies’ real problem was encapsulated by what happened after Kendrick was out of the game. The offense mounted a rally, but the bullpen couldn’t keep the Dodgers at bay, allowing nine – nine! – earned runs in 5 2/3 innings. David Herndon, Danys Baez and, sadly, even J.C. Romero … do you trust these guys to consistently get batters out when called upon? (I won’t lump Antonio Bastardo with them because he’s only recently returned to the Phillies, but his ERA is 5.54, so maybe he should be grouped there too.) After Tuesday’s blowup, the Phillies’ bullpen ERA is 4.26, which ranks 10th in the NL and 19th in the major leagues. The Braves, by comparison, were almost a full run better (3.22) entering Wednesday – good enough to rank third in the league and fifth in the bigs.

Ruben Amaro has apparently hitched his star to starting pitching, and the Phillies are going to need an extra-strength dose of it tonight from Roy Oswalt. As for the team the Phillies are chasing, the Braves won again today – despite another blown save by Billy Wagner and the absence of Larry Wayne Jones, who reportedly was feeling much better after spraining his left knee in last night’s comeback win over the Astros. Jones is scheduled to have an MRI Thursday, and it appears the outlook is much better than when he was writhing in pain on the field.

Also, don’t forget – you can reach us on our new hotline to rant and rave about all things Phillies. The number is (801)-TRADE ME. That’s (801) 872-3363.

LINEUP: Rollins SS, Polanco 3B, Gload 1B, Ibanez LF, Werth CF, Brown RF, Ruiz C, Valdez 2B, Oswalt P

Your Gameday BeerMelanie Brewing Company Beer 30 Light

My roommate got this once in college. The name stuck out, as did the fact that you could get a 30-pack for the same price as a case of Natty Light. That’s right. This beer is cheaper than Natty Light. I was too scared to try any, but according to my roommate, it’s the pisswater to end all pisswater. And this is coming from the guy who drank heavy Busch for four years. Enjoy.– By Michael

GO PHILLIES!

    Wagner is now at 80% save percentage slightly high than Lidge’s 77.8. The catcher totally picked off ankiel in the 10th but the first baseman booted it. Oh well, it is baseball.

    Need a big win tonight. huge outing for the Big O.

    Let’s continue the hitting. Oswalt deserves a nice offensive output from the Phightins. Hopefully the bullpen will show up tonight and not blow the game. Keep all fingers and toes crossed. We really need this win. Billingsley can be very tough.

    Incicentally, somebody told me that Chad Billingsley is the grandson of Barbara Billingsley, who starred as the mother on ” Leave It To Beaver”
    way back in the 1960’s and sometimes still seen as a rerun on TV today.

    Amazing that the Phils are tied in the loss column for the WC. Need to beat the Dodgers so we can pull for them down the stretch, just in case.

    I saw the pictures and article of Howard walking around Dorney Park on Monday. If these pictures are real, and they are thats aweful. 4 hours in the park. I thought he was hurt. This is whats wrong with the players of today. If you can walk a theme park then get on that field and play hard in pain. We all did. Heck I played college ball at rutgers with a torn muscle. They told me to have surgery. I said noway. I played every minute in pain.

    Vic hit a triple in his first ab with the iron pigs looks like he’s ready to come back…now the phils need to get bat going and score some runs for oswalt…

    August 11, 2010 at 7:41 pm

    greetings all ! ———– sup phillyboy ? —– dam astro’s , wagner blows the save and braves hammer them anyway . I tell ya what , the braves are not gonna make this easy theyre pitchin is too good. I keep waitin for them to go on 3 and 7 trip but it ain’t happening. This game tonite is the exact reason we got oswalt , tomorrow’s pitching matchup favors dodgers so he has to give us a gem tonite.

  22. Andrew from Waldorf

    August 11, 2010 at 7:43 pm

    I figure after Oswalt starts about 40 games for the phils they will have scored 9 runs total.

  23. JAY-AKA-PHILLYBOY

    Vic coming back is a bitter pill if Brown goes down. I’d definately send down Dobbs, but then you only have one reserve infielder.

  26. Andrew from Waldorf

    August 11, 2010 at 7:50 pm

    How can brown go down? Its almost unimaginable.
    Is it seriously being discussed?

  33. miked63

    August 11, 2010 at 8:01 pm

    the phils will say d-brown needs to play everyday . There may be some wisdom to that , can he perform off the bench (cold) in a big spot ?
    My answer would be , NO WORSE THAN DOBBS ! —– that how the phils will spin it though if they send him down.

  34. The Original Chuck P

    August 11, 2010 at 8:04 pm

    There’s a story on the Phillies website indicating that Brown would be the odd man out… I said it a few days ago… something’s gotta give and unfortunately, I’m not sure if they feel like Brown is best suited sitting on the bench (which is what he would do with Vic, Werth and Ibanez inked to start). However, they would add him once rosters expand and if we made it into the WS, you could have him start and let Ibanez DH. One step at a time but we would have one hell of a lineup in AL format.

    Polly is one hell of a ballplayer… I was one of the biggest advocates for keeping Feliz and not spending the money on a guy that I thought couldn’t play third but I’m happy to say that I was wrong. Dynamite player…

    It would be nice to see Billingsley lose his control a little bit… walk a couple guys, get his pitch count up and get him out of this game in the 6th.

    when we were pressing during the slump the free swinging was making me nuts , remember the game PAVANO started , he threw like 80 pitches thru 8 innings , i like the selectiveness i just saw from raul and jason.—– make this gut throw strikes ! i hate the YANKEES but nobody takes more pitches than yankees/ and red sox. ——- dom browns speed prevents DP ! ——- NICE RBI YOUNG MAN!

    lets face it- this a MUST win for Oswalt.

    they lose here and they likely get swept at home by a .500 team. CAN’t happen.

    Ibañez played First Base a long time ago. It’d be VERY nice if he could play still, put Francisco in Left. Sweeney hasn’t played first since 2005, but I’m sure he’ll be alright. Just please, not Dobbs.

    You could have an outfield of Shane/Frisco, Werth, Brown if Rauuuuul can play 1st…. not too bad for a temporary solution while Ryno gets back. THough Ryno is supposed to be back in 10 days or less.

    keep leaving runners at 3rd

    has that ever hurt this team before?

    Ya know, I joked about D-Bro being the sac king and I think that we all would love to see him come through with a big hit but after seeing an inning like this (and Valdez stranded on third a couple innings ago), it makes you appreciate the fact that he has been able to get that runner in from third.

    ANDREW’S NICKNAME FOR LIDGE……PRICELESS!!!!!!

    August 11, 2010 at 9:13 pm

    Nice question Jay… maybe D-Bro stays bc Gload is hurt. Strained groin probably lands him on the DL. You’ve gotta have a productive lefthanded bench bat (no Dobbs, not you).

    Oswalt is prob done. Great outing… grab your Bibles, Rosary Beads, Buddha statues, Gonja and pray to whomever you pray to. Madson and Lidge coming up.

    ive been calling him that for weeks

    when he comes in its like we are all sitting on a ledge atop the empire state building and there is a hurricane to boot
    i dont really enjoy it but i am definately not a thrill seeker

    I mean literaly every first batter he faces gets on

    I am actually happy when Greg Dobbs gets out, I was a little mad he got that hit last night

  150. The Original Chuck P

    August 11, 2010 at 9:16 pm

    Dobbs had no chance against Jansen… he’s overmatched against almost everyone.

    August 11, 2010 at 9:18 pm

    Pitchers that Dobbs might be able to hit:
    Adam Eaton

    That’s all I can think of
