Phillies: Park finally put in the pitching performance the Phillies had been expecting when they named him the fifth starter in Spring Training. He allowed just one hit in six shutout innings Wednesday against the Mets at Citi Field, which temporarily quieted the talk that Park might be put back in the bullpen. Park certainly isn’t out of the woods yet. He needs to keep pitching well to keep his job.
Dodgers: Kershaw battled through a 31-pitch first inning, in which he loaded the bases but also struck out the side in his last outing. He was removed after allowing one run in five innings, requiring 99 pitches to get that far. He got big outs with runners in scoring position to frustrate the last-place Nationals, but it could be a different story against a potent Phillies lineup.
Well there is no question that Clayton Kershaw is a better pitcher than Chan Ho Park but on the other hand I believe the Phillies have a better offense, even if the Dodgers still had Manny. I can’t really see this being a close game, win or lose, and I just hope that the Phils come out on top and find themselves back in first place.
Seriously could an 8 hour training class be any more boring? Douche…
