As the writer suggests, Nola appears to have mechanical issues that he can not resolve at this point in time. His ERA has gone through the roof with each drubbing he has faced after June 5th. There were moments he has shown flashes of effectiveness only to lose that consistency with another failure. Obviously, he is puzzled as we the fans are in seeing him get bombed with each start.

It may well be to Nola’s benefit to go to Lehigh Valley and “clear his head” and work out the mechanical issues. Because his confidence is ebbing away and since the Phillies are not going anywhere this season, it would do no harm for Nola to go back to the minors and reassert himself and his confidence in being a premier starter that he has shown in the past. ]]>

is a reasonable measure by which to e it a win.

Just for the year he’s turned in, the performance turned in is not far enough above expectations to get too excited.

And considering the realistic purpose of signing him in his free agent year to a 1 year deal was most notably to flip him since the season’s gone as expected as in a bridge to better days.

“But it’s possible that regardless of what happens in the next week, Hellickson has earned a decent three- to four-year contract to be the No. 3 or 4 starter on any ballclub. Heck, he’d be a good depth candidate for the Phils rotation in 2017 and beyond.”
