You can add Ryan Howard's torn Achilles while running...I mean jogging to first base back in 2011. Love being a Phillies fan!

There are two points I would like to ask about Kyle Schwarber's swing. First, his right foot is not lined up at the start of his of swing but after the leg lift he brings it back to square up the ball. I am guessing that this is his timing mechanism. Will the leg lift motion cause problems for consistency down the road? Second, it seems like he brings his hands in and uses a lot of his wrist speed to make contact and power. If this is true, does this increase or decrease raw power? Awesome article and go Phillies!

You might be right but I'm not sure if Bourjos can get on-base enough. We still don't know how they are going to be using him. I would assume as a starting outfielder but he may be put into the fourth outfielder spot again. In the end, I could I think that it is very possible for him to get around 30 SBs if they give him free reign. My two cents.

Paul, I am interested in hearing your opinion on Doug Fister's mechanics. I know about his perpherials but what his ability to sustain these statistics? Have Fister's DL stints been causation of his mechanics or freak accidents? Otherwise, great article guys.

I absolutely agree with you Josh. The analogy used is spot on. Although, in this case, we are looking at a real life MLB team deciding that an undervalued starting pitcher is worth spare parts. Needless to say, I have sympathy for Fister because he has been traded not once but twice for spare parts.

I partially agree with your opinion. Because I am not well versed in the legal process, I cannot give a proper opinion. Although, I can hundred percent agree on his, "willingness to act the fool". Those five words perfectly describe Rodriquez.

My point was that he left pitchers out on the mound far to long. Also, no I do not mean he should start Halladay once every two times through the rotation. Personally, after watching the Phillies these past few years. All I can say that Manuel was hard on his pitching staff. Lastly, to throw the trolls a bone, look up some of the comments Manuel made about lineups and hitting. By the way, if it was him or not, he had a good hitting team for a few years.

As a Phillies fan, I think I can speak for all of us and say that this has a been a long time coming. Not only has it been proven time and again that Manuel runs pitchers into the ground. It was good foresight by Ruben Amaro Jr. to pick up workhorses like Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee. I still have a bittersweet taste in my mouth from Halladay breaking down but it was just insult to injury when Manuel keeps giving him the ball. Anyways, I look forward to the possible Ryne Sandberg era.

Jeeze, if we are going there trying to listen to a dodgers or white sox game. Here's an idea for a good show in the offseason. Bonehead announcer comments (working title) - take all of the dumbest comments heard from announcers furring the regular season. And if you want multiple episodes go by each year in review. Examples http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=8RLHBK9BMs4 http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Lrrx5CgdZaA#/watch?v=Lrrx5CgdZaA http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=KTsCW7Wa3lo It writes itself guys!
