I don't know what you guys have been hearing about bullpens around the league, but I never listen to the analysts, especially now. The local sports guys around here kept proclaiming that the Phils had one of the better bullpens in the league *cough*bullshit*cough*. I'm glad I usually don't listen to these guys and form my own opinions, and that is the Phillies have one of the worst bullpens in the league, save for their closer, Wagner, and a good younger kid, Ryan Madson.
I'm goin on this rant because the bullpen blew the Phils last 2 games, and the main culprit is Tim Worrel. In his games against the Expos (that's right, I hate the Nationals as a team name, what if they went to the AL?) he's already given up 5 runs in 2 1/3 innings, making his ERA near 20. He blew the lead today and last night as well incurring the loss.
Oddly enough, these so called experts said that the starters for the Phillies could be a flaw, yet so far they are 1-0 with 2 no decisions. But I expect that to change as the back end of the rotation takes on the Cards tomorrow and Saturday.
Oh well, it's still early yet.
