Happy Father’s Day to all the dad’s out there!  May the Phillies’ gift to you  be a win!

Cole Hamels will make his fifteenth start of the year today.  Hamels has improved in his two starts in the month of June, continuing his roller coaster 2013 season of ups and downs.  Hamels was tagged with the loss in his last outing, but the offense was to blame.  Like Hamels, the Phillies offense has been very inconsistent this season.  All Hamels can do is pitch his game that he is capable of.  On the other hand, the Phillies offense should be taking advantage of a hitter friendly Coors Field.

Jhoulys  Chacin will oppose Hamels.  Chacin suffered from a back injury back in April, and has had his share of struggles.  However, Chacin has had some success against the Phillies in the past, posting a 1.21 ERA in 5 games against Philadelphia.

Lineup: Revere CF, Frandsen 2B, Rollins SS, Howard 1B, Brown LF, Mayberry RF, Galvis 3B, Quintero C, Hamels P

GO PHILLIES!

    Another must win for the Phils

    I was going to complain about Rollins being in over Frandsen but Frandsen is in too.

    Go Phils!!!!

    About to turn the game on in a minute. I have a feeling Cole will be asked to be traded soon.

      Please oblige if we get a number one position player and they take Howard’s contract in its entirety.

    Dear Phillies Brass:

    Please fire Ruben Amaro,Jr. He is too impulsive and too stupid to run a baseball team. Soon,fewer and fewer fans will attend your ballgames.

    Fire Amaro today.

    Respectfully,

    Bart Shart
    Phillies fan since 1958

    PS: And while you are at it, fire Charlie Manue, as well. We really need to clean house. And it is
    your job to do so.

      Only one guy you need to write to..Dave Montgomery, and he won’t get rid of RAJ..

      RAJ will be asked to make deals which will make or break this franchise for the next ten years. Not sure if he has the scouting support or the “seller’s acumen” to get it done.

    Degree of Connection?

    Unknowed

    But, there is an indisputable fact attached to the latest radio book for WPHT-AM, anchor of the Phils radio network, and certainly to some extent, affected by Phillies baseball in terms of listenership, or from a pessimistic view, interruption from other programming. After 3 straight months od 2 pus ratings, the CBS O&O dropped under 2, to 1.8 for its June book.

    Does this matter? Sure. The extent to which it matters is debatable beyond my scope. Does it have an effect on on going local TV pact negotiations? Consider it a likely warning sign, although that might be short of the finish line. Combine that with a number of clubs showing yields on local TV ratings and Fox national ratings reflecting a weakness compared to hockey, and the Phils have a challenge to sell their rights into.

    For now, the Phillie PHT package seems a good match. Both are groping for success, and the road is slow and soft. And the McCarthy-Wheeler team is TV’s excuse, not radio’s.
