He's decent. Nothing special. We needed a lefty until Romero is back so this solves that.

With less than a week until Opening Day, the Phillies released veteran outfielder Geoff Jenkins on Tuesday.
Never liked the guy too much but he was a decent lefty off the bench. I dont know how i feel about them going after Sheffield.

Baseball Prospectus has Sheff hitting .244/.339/.412 and that's in Comerica. That wouldn't look bad in a bench/platoon righty. Is that worth tolerating his insanity? I don't know.

Chan Ho Park is your Phils' fifth starter.

http://mlb.mlb.com/news/article.jsp?...=.jsp&c_id=mlb

Quote:
[Chan Ho Park] learned Tuesday afternoon that those decisions paid off: he had beaten out J.A. Happ for the fifth job in the rotation.
...

Park went 2-0 with a 2.53 ERA in 21 1/3 innings this spring. He allowed 20 hits, six earned runs, two walks and struck out 25. Opponents hit .244 against him. Happ went 0-0 with a 3.15 ERA in 20 Grapefruit League innings. He allowed 18 hits, seven earned runs, six walks and struck out 14. Opponents hit .240 against him.
...

Park has not pitched successfully as a starter since 2001 with the Dodgers. He went 78-51 with a 3.74 ERA in 176 starts from 1994-2001, but is 34-34 with a 5.48 ERA in 104 starts from '02-'08. Dubee said Tuesday that Park eased concerns this spring that he could be an effective starter over a six-month season, but pointed out the difference between Spring Training and the regular season.

I'd be very happy with that.

He has been a pleasant surprise this spring, I really thought Happ was going to take it, and Park was going to end up in the Pen. But Park has been so motivated this spring, he gave up playing for his country (which was probably a very big deal for him) to tryout for the starting job. I really hope he keeps this up during the season, and he can stay as a starter, I wouldn't mind having Happ eased into the starting role next year with Carrasco.

Number of starts before the Phils discover that Chan Ho Park sucks in almost every stadium not named Dodger Stadium?

I go with 7 starts before we see Happ in there. 7. Painful. Starts.

Note how I made sure to quote the part of the article where it mentions that he hasn't been an effective starter in the better part of a decade. What the Phillies think has changed, I don't know.

It's not just starting. His relief stats are ridiculously skewed.

I hated that signing at the time--when I assumed he'd be a reliever--and now I hate it even more now.

It's possible this is just a holding pattern until they think Corrasco is ready for a midseason call-up.

Happ absolutely has to be put into the rotation THIS year. The 2010 Phillies will be losing one of Myers or Blanton, probably Park, and will be depending on a 47 year old Jamie Moyer. Happ needs to be a reliable starter for that rotation to go anywhere.

Moyer gets torched today for 9 earned in 4 inning. Howard did hit another bomb though. Up to 10 for spring training. Phillies ended up losing 12-10 to the Nationals. Is anyone kind of worried? I mean we have everyone back from last year but we just suck. We are 12-18-2 this spring, where as Atlanta is 20-11.

how can you say he is terrible everywhere else when he had a 2.5 ERA in the spring. i think he will surprise alot, especially since jaime moyer showed him how to throw a change up which i hear is shapping into one of his better pitches

Are you new to watching MLB? Cuz, lets be serious, spring training statistics have almost zero value.

Chan Ho Park has pitched 1,846 innings in MLB. There has been one truth throughout his career. He is a very, very tough pitcher to face in Dodger Stadium. You want to see him on the mound across from you in nearly every other stadium in the league. As he gets his ass lit up.

CBP is likely to be a nightmare for him. They never should have signed him.

Hey, hope you're right. But he has a long track record...and you know what's funny about change-ups? They are only effective if people respect your fastball. People tend to hit Chan Ho's out of the park.
