  1. Anybody still think Ben R is a CF'er

    Poor KK, he get’s labelled for worst defensive Plays when in reality this belongs to Ben. Ben probably had the worst three/four plays in any one game. Almost get’s Kratz killed with a slow, high arc, up the line throw home, the two blown catches and the rally killing DP. Of course, we also got to witness MY’s butchery of 3B and Delmon Young’s defensive liability in RF. Between the RF and CF, they make DB look like a gold glove OF’er. If these players could make up the defensive mistakes with offensive greatness, we could overlook the runs they give away but they are singles hitters on a good day and out machines on the bad day. When does training camp open?

    Eric, which part of Ben’s game do you like? He has a noddle arm, makes bad reads off the bat on any line drive hit his way, has been pathetic on the base paths (although we could say this about a multitude of Phils this year) and has an empty 260 BA, much like MY. The Phils are losing as a team, sloppy defence with poor range from a significant number of their players, heads up their asses base running, managerial brain farts and poor BP pitching. I’m glad you like Ben but that was a waste of a trade.

    Vance Worley isn’t exactly great either. He did have a great outing in one of his recent starts – but it was against the AAA Lehigh Valley IronPigs.
