Coming up on -- nation's leading the guys discussed -- -- his last start and what Michelin injury means for his future. I got here and questions and take a look at the Phillies match as they head out west all ahead on Billy's -- since -- day. Welcome at both -- Phillies -- -- on your TV he's worked side. -- Brian Williams a couple of minutes he'd be here on this question. The first to go back to Sunday. Just a terrible start for Roy Halladay gives up nine runs two of all teams the Miami Marlins who couldn't hit water if they don't the -- And some summer quotes from right after the game in. Here a few of them and and -- says quote I woke up didn't really think anything of it just regular soreness talking about his shoulder. Which is now injured kind of progressed over the last two weeks -- so. It's right shoulder discomfort I'm going to haven't looked -- here in the next few days and once we get information from that. Obviously let people know what's going on but it's not something that I had before it's something new this year. -- felt good all spring felt good all year just got up after that start in Pittsburgh and had soreness. And just wasn't able to get rid of it like I said we'll go to LAI think and get it checked out decent scans. -- -- to look at it that's doctor -- Yoakam and we'll update you guys in there and what what do we take from this is this indeed beginning of the end. Could be I mean this is actually a positive sign if you can put a positive spin on it in that it's at least an explanation for. How things went so poorly last week he allowed seventeen runs in six innings you know so obviously something wasn't. Right that was the third Phillies pitcher in the last 65 plus years -- LLC and earned runs back to back starts but at least we see how long term is injury or his foot. I think it's probably the beginning at the end of royal county fair it is officially time to. I think you know the guy's just not right over the last two years his walk rate doubled his home run rates doubled -- -- From its first years in Philadelphia so it is looking like the beginning and it's pretty ominous Sunday and pretty ominous signs -- On it is it's pretty awful watching go through this because. Those three starts and after that rough start looked pretty good and he said it after that Pittsburgh game just had a soreness trying to pitch through it. You try to be Gainer and I just didn't work out and hurt the Phillies. In the long run so really the question is if it's not Halladay in there it doesn't look like it will be weird they go from here. Weren't too many options Phillies have two guys in the forty man roster down form could fill -- I guess there's Tyler -- leaders Ethan Martin. -- we saw last season. -- in the mid eighties fastball is not overpowering guys. I don't know if he -- big league stuff you know he's never really -- get a lot of homers last year. When he -- up in September and even -- -- when he walks in 22 innings at triple play that controls a major issue. So I don't know if he's history -- Adams Morgan you know that you say he has what it left the ad court he's not on the forty man roster yet. He pitched on Sunday so. You know I think that's the right way to go who comes off if we don't know what's important to be indictment would be great. Now you know is a winning team in 2013 and if it isn't. Then you need to see what you have got a guy who you expect production from over the next. Find out if those youngsters and an anti Oakley doesn't have a whole lot of upside but Adam Morgan doesn't he's a guy usually get a couple starts here parents so obviously keep an -- another rally situation keep you posted on. Phillies nation dot com and we look at the series as a whole against the Marlins over the weekend. Anyway is you hate to say exit and need to have a sweep a four game sweep at this time of the year but the Phillies -- kind of in that position caps and they couldn't come away with it. They split against a terrible -- Yeah yeah you won the first two games you don't positive that we get that was that was a pathetic weak well hello Steve whatever we think Fernandez is a really good pitcher he's going to be really good -- -- -- -- it I guess he's going to be but. He struggled in the three starts in between those two starts against the Phillies -- I guess the Phillies shut them out three times are there three for 420 I don't care how big -- three -- just means you're not getting it double. Sunday a fourteen to two games. You're going to be reality against -- -- I think it's gonna start out -- off and after three or four innings. But going crazy yeah exactly I mean that you would never expect -- -- always wanted to check out some things but it was really really poor week and the Phillies. They should be weaker than we're three against the -- and here we sit through you know the first 34 weeks of the season and the Glazer about five games worse than what we pegged them as through the first 32 games before the season started exactly and now we have to keep an -- -- Some of the players on the roster and what might happen today and in -- you've seen Halladay that injury they're not hitting the ball. Everything just seems to be falling apart right now so again we ask that question where did they go from here with some of the guys that are on this roster. -- -- -- valued commodities -- baseball guys like Lee. Utley Papelbon. Is this time that we start to think about where they might go before the trade deadline at that it is yeah I think it is too because you can't just continue this roster and is that it doesn't serve any purpose you're not -- this season and deserve any purpose in the next few years and include. At least if the Phillies were -- which we a lot of national analysts and some local guys you expect to have Cliff Lee will be the best starting pitcher to treat her and be able to get a lot. He's not a -- he's got it you. Have better control for two. Three seasons Monday finish if the money's an issue but I think that you know -- what we've got some of that money didn't get a legitimate. Huge package -- returned to get -- our prospects other top guys don't and that's. We rebuilt Cliff Lee. Is a great player on a winning team but if this isn't a winning team there's no point having. Two guys in your rotation being reclusive fifty million dollars now with Jonathan Papelbon some rumblings that a team like the Detroit Tigers could use -- a guy like him they've had some issues in the in the later innings and our team that expects to contend. In the jail -- that there. Yeah I think it's perfect and I mean Jonathan Papelbon is a luxury on a team that's now we know a thirteen going out closer look he's an elite closer and it was a good signing maybe not. For the money but it was a good start and the league tournament in there and contend but. The Tigers are seen as one piece away from the world yeah that is that is close to a perfect -- that you can't and they're just missing open so I really think that gave. We were to get to that point and how well. What were -- shocked the Tigers could give you a top prospect. Closer turned off -- ever since he -- Of course we've got to look at Chase Utley and it'll be a free agent after this season. He's not getting any younger faster only from ESPN -- -- it over the weekend. How the Baltimore Orioles perhaps getting involved should the Phillies got to give up on the season ending treats and these guys that could be. And an interest -- fit Baltimore you know American League team can DH a little bit and keep office legs you see I don't think he's gonna be dealt no matter what -- really fall out of it yet because. What we've seen the last couple years since the draft pick compensation rules have changed is that a guy -- half your -- doesn't command as much. -- -- And your country Chase Utley election -- something substantive and return to. I -- the Phillies regardless of what happens I think -- you know it would make a push -- guys leader in the clubhouse -- guy who is on pace for thirty homers and over a hundred RBIs or. He's really played great as well as a team will usually -- -- -- probably. About this game. And we've heard a lot of the last couple days -- Giancarlo Stanton from the Marlins. And of Ruben Amaro has an agent calls to the Marlins and it just seems like he wants this guy your colleague at CSN Philly dot com Jim Salisbury came out this report. Few days ago is there anything to it I mean it's it's really this guy obviously has talent off the charts yeah he's got fifty home run potential. But it's gonna cost a lot to it to grab him from the Marlins right now doesn't seem like the Phillies had enough to get him but they could. Right I mean that's the thing to watch is that even if the Phillies do become sellers at deadline stick is still a guy they could look to acquire. Because you could be selling off guys like Cliff Lee and using those prospects to get return to trade for stand. I don't know if that's the best course of action because really need to get him. You're looking at the next and here's your office of course like around eighty ugly. Howard stands I don't is that championship team and all that stands obviously a great immense challenge one of the most impressive. There's different you know we didn't do it decade but obviously the Marlins in the division and. All between another team possible more or 2019 wanna -- -- close -- him in a lot of teams could give the morals really topped the -- you know you look at the Rangers and now you know they offered -- works -- pro abortion up to the Phillies -- need to give up a lot to get him in. You know I don't that's worth it when we return here on Phillies nation TD run -- Sox fifteen. And kill our defense get it on the west. Coming up well I'll let delegation team. -- deep and getting past. Whether Ron Mason has made it better as any six men and -- -- -- -- and just tiny Timmy brown -- there -- -- -- -- is in advance and as Bobby and I aging clinic in southern New Jersey. The bronze and -- operas and I ever assistant -- in that same mentality and designs up out of husband's climaxes as a bunch and I believe where it's OK yeah that's not -- surgery count up my tanks and accidentally. Yeah. Love and a bit about the three abilities. Well we're really excited that this is a grand opening we have a dog -- that we take care for rehab twice a week yeah. And he did laser therapy and ran on the -- now -- -- understand the art technology here so hopefully everyone that's going to be coming here he will be utilized concerts here. I see guys that are parents of a beautiful eleven month old baby girl how do you juggle all that -- On Asian black -- hall. -- I get it on the road every yeah do you yes gravity easy but you know that that's that's what we have misses around over here to do August but. She likes to travel Cameron went to travel so actually -- out of a lot. We get that's a Kayla and just give her greatness and no -- mommy stuff but it on the road and still live life. -- That's I was. I know gene Kelly's a big dog and you end up like lady up it's up in. It's basic race. Six. Clubhouse is -- your job back no. -- Kayla she's product you know she's a little shy about it Jackie's RD man used to -- in front of cameras and have been movie star that is. But he he's a pleasure at times there. Now -- she Saint Francis animal hospital -- this is our local -- and for years and coming here and both of our dog's ears out. And obviously we care here and the doctors top notch chest and with our own lives sound. It was only only made sense it was natural for him -- yeah. -- -- Thank you Ryan it was a pretty awesome Ryan -- and -- are there and now we go through a segment that likes to call by the numbers as you can see from the eat it becomes a three there. It is but enough so we get into it. First for the Phillies walk to strikeout ratio tell us a little bit more about that -- Phillies pitchers over the last three years there strikeout to walk ratio is declined. Each season in 2011 that was the pinnacle of 3.5 straight desperately want. Last season it was a two point nine. When you saw were similar amount walks were more -- this season the walks are way up there about fifteen more walks they had -- -- point did you the past two seasons. Reason for that Cole Hamels struggled control we how they struggled control and we're seeing that you have put so many guys on base and also allowed four runs that's not going to be -- -- -- success not success formula. Cole Hamels has had kind of an up and down season so far -- -- it more about him. And sort of a resurgence after a few rough starts yeah I mean he's really -- group fuel in his last five starts is 2.3 what you are -- the poetry 172. Still has one win on the season but that's through no fault -- -- he's really good -- -- he's recovered after two. Previous starts over the weakening of the morals you want -- -- runs but after that he was just. Cruise control once. You agreed it was the first time in sixteen starts walking -- and I kept getting questions about. -- call ours the cold we've seen before I said -- -- -- in actuality it is Cole Hamels. He'll figure it out now that it happened to run for politics and what we're seeing isn't the old ugly issue of run support resurfaced Phillies -- score runs for -- yet it's not call it -- -- -- spectacle again with the run support. From there we go to an interesting look at the work category and the top five guys in -- throughout baseball. And if you these guys are just young talented players who are finally getting it done one B Carlos Gomez from the Milwaukee. Brewers -- -- yeah that'd you have a couple guys -- tour players finally fulfilling to protect you Carlos Gomez who. He's based on wins above replacement to physically that we defense great base runner hitting for power average Dexter Fowler on that. List getting the job at our top traffic people please leave third base defense he's on that was to -- where the best -- in your. It was obvious she's your shoe was the best acquisition of anything is all about those two innings and Jeff Ballard and -- there today against the Phillies were linked to in this off season. It looked nice and a lot of cant really get right now when you look at the center field production the Phillies are getting yet listening to look really nice center of the Phillies. And it finally another terrible team not like the Marlins the Houston Astros to struggle. Which strike -- for the first 31 games struck out 310. Times to attend her game. 262 games you're looking at 1600. And -- it. And the Major League record set in 2010 by the Arizona Diamondbacks. At 15100 in one night there on pace to just blow right through that and I don't believe the Astros for the Braves as well they're faced. Become the second worst strikeout tee -- time outs or do you want me yesterday you expect that from. What strikes me as the Braves because Carnoustie they look like if you missed extra God's honest with BJ -- and Jason Heyward and told Howard did a little guys we have to just. -- often but. What you're seeing is the Braves. Have come back to earth OK because there boom bust team when they're hitting home runs they're gonna be flying -- but when they're not a strike out so much they can't advance runners scored and stuff like that so. This it's kind of upsetting because at least looks almost winnable this season between so between the Braves boom bust this and the nationals being just ravaged with injuries this -- -- -- if you're searching you could make a push so it was kind of upsetting to see the Phillies. You know not take advantage of an easy week and this this -- -- frequent that when we return -- Phillies nation team riotous cheers got the reader comments questions. He's advanced state but it is PM TV. We're -- really. News and I went 9000018. Back. Welcome back at the Phillies nation T -- That with the here and now we bring in the lovely Ryan Williams -- reader comments. From you know the fans you can leave and forest on FaceBook or Twitter brought to buy the if you think it's consistency Riley Edwards burst that he underneath the plan now. Why did it and I'm shopping around him Miami countered immediately. Well at some point you just gotta stop unloading that minor league talent and he got filtered into the major -- scene that is the problem here this team now. Holder higher priced veterans not a lot of young. Cheap talent. You guys got brown got -- got some of the pitchers. But overall they've got to stop getting rid of their top guys don't want to touch that we don't want Cutler so it's just getting his really early in the season -- talk about trades and really put me -- and acquire what hitters throughout the choir and there aren't teams that are out of the race. And what we're seeing the two wildcard system is that the teams hang onto their players later in the season because they think they can make sure -- -- -- -- Padres in the third start he's out of it in the bigotry -- they can -- entry now. What's next drive. Chris game plan you know good in the Phillies the most attracting higher this year. About Antonio -- sport it's really flown under the radar but it took about starters back in this league level to death but he's keeping his fastball really low rates and he got hurt we've seen this -- -- would be as well. Velocity is there the location there he looks like it'll -- lefty reliever -- -- go the opposite direction most people would think that Hendrick because and of course prize on the opposite end of the spectrum -- tears he assumed. Take off as the lead off hitter in this lineup. Just hasn't happened hovered around 200. In and out of the lineup that they have beaten him so far but just as it's taken off the week I thought he would and we gave up Worley and many thought this guy I would -- You know obviously the center fielder for a long time but you also be a mainstay at the top of the order and that's half. I guess puts out of that though that's really really struggling in the first of newbies when. Yeah what's up next drive. -- and in Harrisburg went down it's Jimmy Key selling seats helping out here when it there contact to get him. I think the number would be about eleven million per year so I'd say maybe two years point two million depending on where the Phillies would wanna go. Who knows it really depends on if he stays healthy this entire season. So give it a 162 games to give a real answer for this addressed to me right now I see eleven million dollars at the team out there. It would give him a third year option him I think there's going to be team out there that give you three years in the fourth round if he performs at -- we -- right now -- clearly show. He's on pace for thirty homers and a 106 RBIs and 28. And he still feeling really good defensive second base so. He played a full season you know there are rumblings of the mostly five. So we can do look at something like three years 3639 million dollars with your audio. Because he plays a premium position plays really well when he hits for power don't find guys to play second base that. That we don't learn anything about those three year contract for us at thirty that we have put it would keep the Galaxy something in the big money at -- what's up final four lines -- question. The writers around have a question is if you -- and hockey player what would you welcome it. That was a lot of different directions but yeah homer wrapped and I kind of was my own little world with music so I'm gonna give you -- saw -- -- never heard of as a resident of that revenue that. Over the weekend I heard Delmon young's walk -- mentality I mean I hired me. That has always been one of the songs that hope in my office because. They've got that dealt for. Hopefully -- -- economy gets on if if if I cannot undergo an iron eight LB Eddie or maybe the troops behind me. I'm an oasis fan so this morning glory. Or maybe you're going to be hit upside that are represented Philly roots summing -- -- it work whether it's enough that's pretty good at about guys around baseball even here our backyard. It -- -- interest and walk up music throughout Major League Baseball Prince Fielder doesn't Mozart. Just enough I couldn't believe that -- -- we've been in Munich it's clear especially if it's anything it's just constant treatments it was trying to get -- about but the rest of the team obviously you know Chase Utley. Dad just walked up so it's it's amazing when you're completely Ted Nugent. Of course you know reality changed it -- here yesterday Led Zeppelin. Announced Tears for Fears and -- released and here's the trump on the field house. If you -- if it's. -- -- -- guys right next few days consistent for sponsoring the reader comments questions get reinforced FaceBook Twitter -- the website Phillies nation dot com come right back here. I'm Brian Quinn who. On the -- of BQ based systems. We've grown to be the leader. In the were printing industry and the Philadelphia region and we love our Phillies down there. Our goal is customer. Comes away. That customer at the into the today. I'm Brian quite he can break through and me we've been in business since -- Well men it is a up pretty big week for the bills as they're out there on the West Coast it's Giants obviously and and the Diamondbacks seven big games coming up here and that's why -- -- was so disappointing as the Indians -- really needed take care of business against who the weaker teams in both leagues but. The Giants are really cruising coming into the series they've won six straight entering this series there. Three guys were really hitting Buster Posey published in evolved Hunter -- really performing I have definitely opened this can be very tough -- Phillies must opposing more walks -- strikeouts and started off with a slump he's one of the elite catchers completely players obviously for that he'd been here one of the best. -- and -- policy -- disguise -- and 300 outs possible everytime I look up she's in a while hitting 330 I mean there's nobody in baseball who does what he does of the plate he hits pitchers literally off the ground and into the gap for an ops you'll double and and Hunter Pence giving them some value to drive in runs here that is a tough lineup when you have -- you really get it and Giants let's look at the matchups. For the remainder of the Phillies Giants series and Tuesday night. It's Kyle Kendrick and Tim Lincecum Lincecum is really fall off last year and you are over five this year in the mid fours. Stuff fastball velocity. Looked it up then back in his Cy Young year 2008 gives it 9040. Would would throw it up there 9899 now he's hovering around ninety miles an hour that really seems he'd probably just doesn't have that juice on the fastball like he once did. When he was coming out of college and come out draft people said that windup is not what people that -- not people's gonna catch up Tuman. When he was winning two cy -- nobody was thinking anymore but now that it's resurfaced you really see that there's a reason you don't have short right handers with a violent delivery like this it just doesn't work I mean -- there's been a little better this year but he still so wild walks and hit batters. Phillies it's the kind of guy you think they should go and hit but this team has been so inconsistent offensively continuity to predict if they're gonna hit a guy or not -- Steve remainder of the series not a Wednesday's afternoon match up just about Barry Zito that's -- surgeons from very you know. A career Q are -- with San Francisco into the boards -- them. Any low threes right now yeah Barry Zito is either great outing were really poor when I was shocked to see this that it over the last two seasons he's in the top five in baseball terms of going seven innings or more giving up no runs that was -- I'd like Felix Hernandez on the other -- pitchers and Barry Zito so very surprising to see. But the soft tossing lefty Phillies should theoretically get them. Are they going to wanna is giving up the most hits per. Nine in his career at almost ten per nine innings so you think he suitable. See what happens out there it's always tough to play out San Francisco however and then we go to the Arizona Diamondbacks series that starts on Thursday. And talk about some of the offensive players one that stands out in particular is Paul Goldschmidt who looks like Paul -- I mean that you can probably hit forty home runs. How at least a few times and as you know -- goals for not only that. He could do it 3030 guys so close between bases this season he's big he's fast he's on our pro field is really the first -- to -- one of the under the radar first baseman in all of baseball. Cycling gold -- of the Diamondbacks and really just going off that team. Marching Protestants who twice Miguel Montero is hovered around 200 balls he's in the starting shortstop Cliff Pennington is around 200 as well. Unlike the giant with a grateful and and I'm -- and it's been pretty bad against teams. J. J. Putz has blown for a ninth save opportunities. And they blown ten -- his team which leads baseball about that let's go to some of this pitching matchups Thursday -- got a pretty good -- Cole Hamels is Patrick performance. Oh gains in the beginning of the season for -- want Eagles ERA. Wow this act it darn exit that are really good job only a few years of just developing young pitchers whether it's their own guide her through treats and so we Miley last season. This evening at Patrick court he's been the ace of the staff ace of the staff that has some big names Ian Kennedy and Brandon McCarthy yes and now according came over that Dan Haren trade with the LA Angels. So way up pretty good young names he denial on their -- -- to go to the weekend Saturday's Cliff Lee Trevor K okay -- another young -- actually not result yet KO his last start came close to hit complete game -- he was really points sinker ball or heavy sinker. When he's always really hard if he's having a weak ground ball and -- -- culpable for four guy you hear that a lot -- that of yours alone on Hernandez that stuff doesn't look overpowering if you look up in that they are over three with two groundout and fly out and then Sunday it's looking like Kyle Kendrick against Brandon McCarthy who has not had eight. A very good start of the season but it turns out that his wife is really how do you that is true -- is the best Tweeter -- the best baseball players and -- really funny how different that's it Phillies nation. T when I think that by the -- John Daly and right Michael Brian Williams is doing fine job that he does Natalie. As well I think thanks to beat you faced resistance and the bad -- let -- hang out here at -- ballpark he is -- -- that gal -- looked up to you next week. Phillies nation TV.
These baseball wins above replacement if he plays that we defense great base runner hitting for power and average. Dexter Fowler on that list getting the job I would topics that people please leave third base defense he's on that was to go the
He's based on wins above replacement to physically that we defense great base runner hitting for power average Dexter Fowler on that. List getting the job at our top traffic people please leave third base defense he's on that was to where
the big deal I don't think the Phillies want to wait that long. I still think you know they kicking the tires and Dexter Fowler in a trade. And to look at Josh Willingham a big that probably in the corner as this thing shakes out I would even
tree yeah I think that's that's going to be the trees and if they traded while you would be. That's taking out Dexter Fowler will be in there I've been a big Michael Dyer. And of course Jacoby Ellsbury but I think that felt the price tag
those a strong teams from the west that will be quite a challenge. She have very good skating young defense scored two Cam Fowler leads the way of Sammy Watkins back there are some names up to won't be that recognizable but they can move and the flyers
Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Rickie Fowler give their opinions on the Merion Golf Club.
Rickie Fowler with one of the best rounds of this tournament a three under 67 which included four birdies and that one bogey. What was working
used out on tour about 4045 pros Havoc and golf bag and I noticed some of the majors I get to see that in their bags. Rickie Fowler Dustin Johnson just two of the golf professionals who use it. And basically what it is it's its an opportunity for a golfer
you know there's still trying to make a deal for that center fielder who like to find a defensive guy maybe like to Dexter Fowler . You know maybe like Ben the twins. And you know his free agents like Michael stick to lukewarm about Josh Hamilton
two shot win over KJ Choi. double bogey on fifteen opened the door for watney who shared the lead after three rounds Rickie Fowler . Is great feeling. You know pay very tough Kate gaze. You know he's I've seen he's a champion so. Does that it was
Certainly what they Sunday to forget for 22 year old Rickie Fowler the fan favorite here around and make in the final round with ..... In the same situation and how they handle themselves. So Fowler search for a first PGA tour victory continues but with his skill
drive and a little bit and that's saw guys able to really coast those low rounds but. You mentioned Adam Scott and Rickie Fowler the key for those guys able poses rounds it was definitely staying in the fairways. I struck the ball really solid the few
