Park's starting job in jeopardy?

Reading between the lines is always dangerous, so all we can do is report what Charlie Manuel had to say in his post-game news conference.

Park's starting job in jeopardy?

Reading between the lines is always dangerous, so all we can do is report what Charlie Manuel had to say in his post-game news conference.

Manuel said he and pitching coach Rich Dubee would sit down and evaluate the team's pitching situation. One topic of discussion will certainly be the struggles of righthander Chan Ho Park, who walked six and allowed seven runs in 4 2/3 innings Friday night.

"Our pitching is something we'll talk over," Manuel said. "I'm not ready to say Chan Ho Park is not going to get any more starts. I'm not ready to say that."

That's hardly a strong vote of confidence.

The Phillies have other options, whether it is now or in the future. Park pitched well in his last start, but struggled mightily last night. Lefthander J.A. Happ, meanwhile, pitched two scoreless innings of relief. Righthanders Kyle Kendrick and Carlos Carrasco have pitched well this season at Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Manuel said the team's other options would factor into whatever decision is ultimately made.
