Charlie Makes a Good Decision

Not surprisingly, Charlie Manuel has banished Chan Ho Park to the bullpen.  To Park's credit, he has taken it well, acknowledging that he hasn't done well as a starter, and he vowed to make the best of his new role.  He pitched a solid inning out of the bullpen this afternoon against the Reds in today's 12-5 blowout in Cincinnati.

J.A. Happ, who has pitched exceptionally well out of the bullpen, will get a start against the Yankees this weekend.  It should make for an interesting game.

Jamie Moyer pitched better last night, even though he lost.  He gave up three runs in 5 inning, but he finally showed some command of his pitches last night.  His performance last night was a significant improvement over the last several, giving me hope.  Blanton got hit again today though--5 earned runs in 5 innings.  

Next up: the hated, damned Yankees.  Oh, and did I mention that I really hate inter-league play during the regular season.  It's just wrong, in so many ways.....
