Back to Form

Joe Blanton, Brad Lidge and Jamie Moyer have all put together some solid performances as of late. All three had awful stretches recently, but now seem to be back to World Championship form.

In his last two starts, Blanton is 2-0, with a 1.93 ERA and 16 K's in 14 innings pitched. In the three starts that preceded those, Blanton was 1-1, with a 7.50 ERA in 18 innings pitched.

Just a couple weeks ago, Brad Lidge had given up runs in a career high 6 straight appearances. And as recently as two weekends ago, Lidge blew two saves in New York against the Yankees. In Lidge's last 5 appearances, he's allowed just 1 baserunner, and he's saved each game, including the last four on consecutive days.

Jamie Moyer, who just won the 250th game of his career on Sunday, has put together three straight outings where he's pitched 6 full innings and gave the Phillies a real shot to win each game. In his last three games, Moyer's ERA is 4.00 in 18 innings pitched. In the three starts that preceded those games, Moyer's ERA was 13.86 in 12 1/3 innings.

Jayson Werth must like to travel or performs better with a stomach full of room service. Werth's home/road splits stand out far more than any other Phillie.

Werth on the road- 22 games, .295 avg. (26-for-88), 6 homers, 19 RBI, .956 OPS.

Werth at home- 25 games, .200 avg (18-for-90), 2 homers, 7 RBI, .623 OPS.

Stat to ponder- The Phillies are 19-4 (.826 winning percentage) in games when Jayson Werth scores at least 1 run.

This Guy Speaks For All of You

This individual, interviewed by FOX 29 on Friday as the Phillies arrived back at Citizens Bank Park, said it best. When asked how he felt regarding the Phillies, he told Steve Keeley that he was, "Stoked, baby!" The unidentified phanatic then proclaimed, "We are talking about the Fightins here, the Fightins! Said!" Check out the media player below, as the transcribed version certainly does not do this phireball of phandom justice. The Phillies forced game 6 of the National League Championship Series with a 4-2 victory over the Giants in San Francisco on Thursday night. Game 6 will feature Roy Oswalt vs. Jonathan Sanchez in a return pitching match up from game 2. First pitch is scheduled for 7:57 pm EST at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia. Be sure to tune in on 97.3 ESPN's Weekend Sports Guide with Tyrone Johnson this afternoon around 1:15pm to hear me chatting about the Phillies! 97.3 is based in Atlantic City.

Who is Your Favorite Willie 'Mays' Hayes?

PhoulBallz.com is wondering which individual who has portrayed Willie "Mays" Hayes is the favorite of the public. Hayes, of course, is the character made famous in the Major League motion picture series. In Major League , Willie "Mays" Hayes was portrayed by budding Hollywood actor Wesley Snipes, who would go on to action movie superstardom. Snipes has starred in major motion pictures like the Blade trilogy, Passenger 57 , Undisputed and many more. Snipes remains an impact Hollywood actor, despite legal troubles related to income tax evasion. Snipes was replaced for the sequel, Major League II when his busy career, and possibly the film's budget, would not allow him to return, by Omar Epps. Another budding actor, Epps had previously worked with director David S. Ward, on the film The Program , and landed the role of Hayes, who had become a Hollywood action star over the off-season that occured between the two films. Epps' career portraying athletes rol

Wassup with dat? Vito Friscia edition

Friscia, image- Jay Floyd What's up with that Vito Friscia guy?  Well, he's a 24-year-old righty batting catcher that was drafted by the Phillies out of Hofstra University in 2019 with the team's final selection, 1200th overall, in the 40th round. But what's his deal?  Friscia opened the season with Class A Advanced Jersey Shore, where, in 16 games, he notched a .264 batting average with a pair of home runs, five doubles and seven RBI.  Last week, when Triple-A Lehigh Valley needed a reserve backstop, Friscia was promoted to fill their void.  When Rafael Marchan returned from a short stint in the big leagues, Friscia was assigned to the Double-A Reading roster.   Is he just a backup catcher?  For now, it seems that's his role.  But check out this quote from BlueClaws skipper Chris Adamson from earlier this month when I asked him about which player stood out to him as a guy that deserved recognition, but may not be getting it. "Vito Friscia is a guy that, earl
