Phillies can clinch a playoff berth by winning 4 of the last 6 games.

While the Mets and Brewers can assist the process by losing, the Phillies simply have to win four games to punch their ticket for the postseason and all six to clinch the NL East.
And I knew we were doing good in September but wow ...

At 12-6 this month, this team is peaking, having won nine of their past 10 games. They've hit .260 as a team with 24 home runs in 18 games, including at least one in 17 straight games. They compiled a 4.47 ERA as a staff.

As per usual, they go on their 2nd half run. They're now 12 over .500 since the break.

Fine by me. I'll take a playoff berth anytime.

I just hope they keep it up and win a few more games.

Hamels
Myers
Blanton?

as our playoff rotation?

Id say Moyer over Blanton, he's been far more consistent.

The potential NLDS will definitely be a rotation of Hamels, Myers, Moyer...it will be interesting to see who pops into the rotation should they win that series.

Yeah I have to admit I didn't see this streak of the last 10 games coming although on balance, their 2nd half performance hasn't been too much greater than the 1st half.

But we've seen what can happen when both the pitching and hitting have pretty much been on song with the pitching doing some bailing out of the hitting (3-2 win against the Fish) and the hitting bailing out the pitching (8-7 win against the Braves).

If Myers gets himself back together after that last start, they could be an interesting team if they make the postseason although I'm not completely sold on Moyer or Myers, it's a bit of a lottery with both of them.

Agreed

After Hamels our whole staff is ???

Myers can be solid or just play like ****.

Moyer is very dependable, and come to think of it, he is the Veteran guy I want in the playoffs. He knows what he needs to do.

Blanton can probably play a solid bullpen in the playoffs. All we need is to win a few more games and I'll be so happy. As long as w beat the Mets, thats priority number 1.

Myers might get game 1, followed by Hamels, Moyer and probably Blanton. I don't see Charlie going with Happ in the rotation.

The thing with Moyer is that if he gets an ump calling a small zone, he's really going to struggle especially if he's pitching against an offense like the Cubs or the Mets.

Couple other things to consider.

Hamels has already pitched 220 innings, that's an up from 183 in 2007, I dunno if we can continue to rely on him to be a huge workhorse for us, he has to be feeling fatigue.

Myers is at 185.2, not counting his minor league innings, after only 68 last year, he must be feeling it as well. Apparently his stuff was awful last time and he didn't have any gas on his fastball, hopefully he'll get enough rest.

I'd go with a rotation of Hamels, Moyer, Myers, Blanton, I don't think we can get away with only 3 starters if they're serious about trying to do something in the postseason.

All of this assuming that actually miss the playoffs hehehe.

If Myers gets game 1, I will cry.

I want Hamels getting Game 1, Game 4 and potentially, Game 7.

1st 2 rounds are best of 5.

Ok, then I want Hamels getting Games 1,3 and 5

In all honesty, I guess there is little difference between Hamels pitching Games 1 and 4 or games 2 and 5.

Im not even sure I want Myers pitching 2 games though. I just have a feeling he would screw at least one up.

In this day and age of baseball, teams typically don't go with 3 man rotations in the playoffs.

You're asking a lot of Hamels who doesn't clearly doesn't like to go on short rest. Assuming he gets game 1, he would pitch game 1 and then game 5. If he gets game 2, then he would go in game 6. If anyone is going 3 games in 1 series it will be Myers.

Myers wants the ball and has the mentality of a number 1 starter. With the exception of his last outing he's been lights out since his return. I don't have any problem with him getting the ball in game 1.

If it weren't for Myers and his performance since coming back from his stint in the minors, this team wouldn't be in the position that it's in now.

His last 3 starts lead me to think that he is (even though he's gotten the W in his last 2). He just hasn't seemed as sharp as usual.

Through 6 and a half its tied 2-2. I guess Happ had another solid outing with the exception to the 2 run homer he gave up. Didn't start watching til just now though.

Great play by Rollins to get him out at the plate. That was so huge that he didn't score.
