I was bored yesterday, so I walked around the clubhouse throwing out this scenario:
Two outs, bottom of the ninth, tie game, runner on second.
Which Phillies pitcher would you send to the plate?
Hey, it isn't the most hard-hitting journalism you'll ever read, but I figured with the hot-hitting Micah Owings pitching today for the Diamondbacks, and with some Phillies pitchers coming up big with the bat recently, it was worth exploring.
Hamels won by a vote, though Adam Eaton busted out of his 0-for-10 slump last night with a double to left center.
Also, Jerry Crasnick happened to write a story today on the best hitting pitchers in the entire league. Check it out. . . Eaton and Hamels didn't make the top 9, but they were honorable mentions.
We'll keep an eye on the J-Roll situation today. Stay tuned.
