As far as oswalt I think he and phils will be ok. I mean he got hurt earlier this season came back and pitched like 4 games or so and then got injured again. He was out for almost 2 months this last time. So that's like 5 or 6 starts in the past like 4 months. If his fastball is around 91 and still "jumps" at the hitter I think he'll be better then ok it might take a while though. But thats just my opinion.

I too am worried about the phils offense against Cain and Lincecum . Hopefully they watch a lot of video between now and the potential post season match up.
I would think you just have to get AB's against them. How much could video really help you with out seeing the pitch coming towards you, ya know?

I agree, it won't in the long run. That's kind of what I meant, he didn't have a good game but he did a good job of controlling the damage and left the game with a chance to win. That's about all you could ask of him with given the opposing pitcher and that it was his first game back in 2 months.
