Rise and Phight: 5/24/2022

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports A very nice night last night A pretty impressive performance from Zack Wheeler, wasn’t it? The rotation for the Phillies was supposed to be one of the strengths of this team. With all the things that have gone wrong so far, the rotation has been one of the sneaky underrated parts of the team. They’re usually kept in the game thanks to the starters; they just haven’t received the offensive and defensive support needed. On to the links. Phillies news: It’s always fun to see how former Phillies are doing in other places (ed. note:...

Well and good: Phillies 7, Braves 3

Zack Wheeler and the Phillies made it look easy on Monday | Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports Winning baseball games doesn’t have to be that hard Baseball isn’t that hard. When your offense scores a lot of runs, and your pitching staff doesn’t give up too many, you tend to win a lot of games. The trouble is, the Phillies haven’t been able to follow that formula with much consistency this year. Fortunately, on Monday night, the Phillies’ offense and pitching both performed well, and they came away with a 7-3 victory over the Atlanta Braves. The Braves didn’t...

Ace in the hole: Phillies 3, Padres 0

Photo by Tim Nwachukwu/ Zack Wheeler again showed why he is worthy of the ace mantle Remember a few years ago when we as a group were debating who the ace of the staff was? We had been accustomed to seeing Aaron Nola come out and finish in the top three of the Cy Young vote in 2018 and many thought that the Phillies had finally developed a homegrown ace that would stay that good forever. His dropoff in 2019 wasn’t exactly a cliff dive, but most thought he’d bounce back to his former form. Then the team signed Zack Wheeler. Since that signing, Wheeler has been...

Hittin’ Season #558: The Jean Segura appreciation post

Photo by Abbie Parr/ Segura has been one of the Phillies’ most consistent players. When you think about the Phillies, Segura’s name is likely not the first one you think of. Bryce Harper, the reigning MVP, face of the franchise, obviously comes first. Free agents Kyle Schwarber or Nick Castellanos are more top of mind, as is a homegrown player like Rhys Hoskins or the best catcher in baseball, J.T. Realmuto. Zack Wheeler and Aaron Nola have almost won Cy Youngs, too, if you want to throw pitchers into the mix here. No, you don’t often think about Jean Segura and...

A good start to the day: Phillies 7, Rockies 1

Zack Wheeler pitched six shutout innings on Thursday afternoon | Photo by Mitchell Leff/ On a crucial day for the city’s sports teams, the Phillies helped set a positive tone Thursday was shaping up as a very important day for the Philadelphia sports teams. The 76ers will take on the Toronto Raptors in a critical game six of their playoff series, while the Eagles have a chance to shape the future of their team with two first round picks in the NFL Draft. I won’t claim that an April game against the Colorado Rockies has the same gravity as those events, but it was a...

Colorado Rockies game no. 18 thread: Austin Gomber vs. Zack Wheeler

Photo by Duane Burleson/ The Phillies looks to cap a four-game sweep against the 4-4 Road Rockies The City of Brotherly Love has done minimal favors for the National League brethren of Colorado. The Rockies have been outscored 25-8 in the first three games of a four-game set, and the club will return to Denver tonight with either a winning or losing record on the road. Austin Gomber (4.20 ERA, 3.28 FIP) will take the hill for the Rockies after last pitching Saturday against the Tigers. He tossed six innings of shutout baseball in that start while collecting eight...
