Everyone pretty much agrees our starting pitching has the potential to be a force to be reckoned with for the exception of Gee >>>>
for 2013? has equal potential to not be that good. would be better if 3 other division teams also didnt have same or better potential.
Last 2 seasons, we lost about 75 games after leading in the 7th.
A better BP WOULD have been a HUGE difference in what we're talking about today.
If all of our starters put up sub 2 ERAs, we'll make the playoffs.
See, I can play the "what if" game also.
Gee is just about an adequate 5th starter, presuming health. That's it.
" noway we are getting past the braves and nats"
Never said we were..just saying if all things go right we can have an outside shot at hitting the second wild card..that's about as modest an expectation a fan can have right
The reports say that no major muscles were involved in the surgery and he was allowed to start throwing very soon. Gee has already reported that his arm feels great and he can't wait to start ST.
So not as big of a deal as some are making it out to be.
the phillies rotation is on the way down...lee and halladay are not nearly what they once were
im also not exactly sold that the braves have a better rotation either....medlen has never made 32 starts in the majors, hudson wasnt his lights out self last year, & maholm isnt much to write home about
