TINSTAAPP (There Is No Such Thing As A Phillies Pitcher)

Posted in 2017 Phillies on April 22, 2017 by wechslerh66


Me, emailing my cousin in Cambridge about the Clay Buchholz trade last December:

I can’t help thinking of the worst case and not completely unlikely scenario: Clay Buchholz is the new Andrew Bynum. Well, OK, he’ll probably play more than zero games for the Phils, but, like, five is more than zero. Norm Charlton’s Phillies career (http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/c/charlno01.shtml) also comes to mind[.]

Deadspin, two days ago:

Phillies pitcher Clay Buchholz had surgery earlier this week to fix a torn flexor tendon in his right arm. His 4-to-6 months of recovery will keep him out for the rest of the season.

Buchholz, who the Phillies got from Boston in December for 24-year-old minor leaguer Josh Tobias, is in the last year of his contract. He will make $13.5 million this season for 7.1 innings pitched, 40 batters faced, and 10 earned runs allowed. Those will almost certainly be his final career numbers with the Phillies.

(And right, Mike Jackson.)
