PhoulBallz Q&A With Clay Condrey


Clay Condrey pitched for the Lakewood BlueClaws in their SAL Championship series on Monday night. Condrey is still trying to work his way back following an injury to his oblique muscle. After his outing, I had the chance to speak with Clay. Here is how that went down.


What have you missed most, while rehabbing the injury?

Being with the guys. Just being by yourself...you go to the field, I'm done by 12:30/1 o'clock and have 12 hours to kill.


Talk about your outing in the playoffs for Lakewood.

I guess for me, the way I reacted was a little tender with the oblique, I guess. But, the last three hitters all went aside and instincts kicked in a little bit.


So, you're still very conscious of the injury? Maybe trying to save yourself or hold back?

I think I am, but the last three hitters I really started to feel like I was getting out in front of the ball and it was sinking.


What's next...more rehab, or do you think you're ready to rejoin the Phillies?

I'd like to say, "Yeah", but we'll have to see how the oblique reacts.


What are your thoughts on the troubles with the back end of the Phillies' bullpen right now?

You know, they'll be fine. Every team goes through a little bit of a rough stretch here and there...whether it's hitters or pitchers.


What's your favorite baseball movie?

For Love of the Game.
