Lucas Harrell Angry

The Phillies have faced Houston Astros starter Lucas Harrell twice this year, and twice they’ve sent him into fits of rage. On May 14, Harrell surrendered three runs in five and two-thirds innings as the Phillies went on to win 5-1. Last night, Harrell allowed four runs in five and two-thirds innings, but got the no-decision when the Astros hung a three-spot in the bottom of the eighth en route to a 6-4 victory. As interesting as the game itself were Harrell’s rage antics in the dugout both times. After the jump, you can check out some .gifs of the action.

    Perhaps if our manager worked the strike zone — like, for ONCE — they wouldn’t continually get inconsistent strike zones. That called third strike to Mayberry in the 9th inning was in the opposite batter’s box; not a word from anyone. At least Manuel handled the eighth inning PERFECTLY. I can’t think of anyone in the bullpen with experience closing out games while recording between 3 and 6 outs. FUCK THIS SEASON AND FIRE CHARLIE MANUEL.

    jauer,

    Further to your point about Charlie mismanaging the bullpen last night, how the hell does he get away with leaving Diekman in to face the RHB Brandon Barnes after the Phils fell behind by one run. At Oklahoma City, Barnes hit .356 / .427 / .567 vs. LHPs (as compared to .303 / .354 / .421 vs. RHP’s). So far in the majors, Barnes has hit .286 / .310 / .357 vs. LHP’s and .171 / .216 / .257 vs. RHP’s. With DeFratus warmed up and ready to come in, what could possibly be Charlie’s excuse for sticking with Diekmann? Maybe he was too tired to walk out to the mound again or may he doesn’t believe that there’s much difference between a 1-run deficit and a 2-run deficit. Unfortunately, we’ll never know because I doubt he was asked the question in the post-game news conference.

    That game was a horror show. No more Tyler Cloyd please. He would had to have magical control to be decent with the stuff he has. Your average infielder could probably throw at elast as hard.

    After the pen gave up 3 runs last night I felt like doing the same thing Harrell did.

    Are these his normal bad start reactions? or was this an exception?
