» Dogged: Wolf Out for Season from Minutiae
Word on the street is that Phils' pitcher Randy Wolf's throwing elbow injury is worse - or as bad, depending on whom you ask - [Read More]


I agree that Floyd's problems are far worse than a question of confidence and mishandling. His mechanics looked terrible to me when he was still with the Phils. It will take a lot to work those out. He just seemed to hesitate in his delivery and then throw with him arm alone rather than pushing off with his lower body. His control was never impressive during his call-up last year or stint this season. My recollection is he hit a fairly large number of batters, too. He just never seemed to be comfortable on the mound and the results showed. Was his win against the Cards this season here or in St. Louis?

It was a 4:00 game in St. Louis if I remember correctly, with Pratt catching.

I don't have any hard evidence for what I am about to say, but I have a sneaking suspicion some pitchers on the Phils' staff perform better when Pratt is behind the plate. I don't necessarily say this because of Jason's reply above (a 4:00 start is probably more significant), but Pratt seems to stay on top of the pitchers more than Lieberthal does, forcing them to focus, hit spots, bear down, etc..
