« Braves meet the beast; Halladay proving his worth | Main | Report: Carpenter scratched from his start in AAA »

Thursday, April 22, 2010


according to phuturephillies, Carpenter was scratched from his start today.

Perhaps Carp gets a spot start...or perhaps he's insurance for Figgy getting a spot start.

I really like how the Phils rotation is set up. Not that there was any intent to do it this way, but KK, Doc, Moyer make a lot of sense because you have an almost certain night off for the pen in your in between the heavy anticipated usage between KK and Moyer.

Seems like the most sensible regular season rotation would be 1, 4, 2, 3, 5.

It is a bit funny how that worked out, isn't it...(on the rotation setup)

Why would anyone born in 1988 be named after Joe Torre?

"Why would anyone born in 1988 be named after Joe Torre?"

My guess is their father was a big fan of Torre's in the 60s/early 70s. He was a pretty decent catcher... 9 time allstar, gold glove, MVP in '71, etc.

My father, for example, was a born and raised Phils fan but was always a big Torre guy. He's always had a softspot for catchers.

Torre was a tremendous player, very underrated.

The Braves!!! He's from Georgia.
