Finally… The Phillies Look Like The Phillies

17 May

Hector Luna in the dugout after hitting a Grand Slam in the Phillies 9-2 win in Chicago on Wednesday.

The Phillies are starting to look more like the Phillies we remember from the last few years.

After a walk-off win on Tuesday, the Phillies looked more motivated.  I honestly think that they haven’t really been challenged in the last few years, and this is something that they have never really faced before, and I like their chances.

However, there is still plenty of work to be done.  The Phillies are still having trouble with runners in scoring position, ranking towards the bottom of the Majors, and are 2nd to last in the league in BB.  But it’s getting better.

You have to love the contributions that are coming in from the guys on the bench like Ty Wigginton, and Hector Luna.  (See above)  Also, the debut of Jake Diekman yesterday was awesome to see in person.  It won’t be long before Jake is a household name.

Wednesday’s bullpen performance was pretty good to see, too.

Thanks for hanging in a checking back here at the blog.  If you don’t already…

    I remember Diekman as a BlueClaw in Lakewood, nothing beats the rain delay where he helped lead both teams in the YMCA and the Cha Cha Slide. Great to see another BlueClaw go from Shore to Show.

    Big week for some former Ironpigs. Diekman debuts, Luna slams, Valdes holds, Fontenot hits, and even Rich Thompson returns to the show with Tampa.
