Left-Handers, Left-Handers, and Left-Handers, Oh My!

Tuesday, May 13, 2008 ·

The Phillies are slated to face three straight left-handed starters for the Atlanta Braves.

Tonight: Jo-Jo Reyes against Kyle Kendrick
Tomorrow: Tom Glavine against Brett Myers
Thursday: Chuck James against Cole Hamels
As a team, the Phillies are currently hitting .235 against left-handed pitching. Reyes is coming off a start where he left early due to a blister on the index finger of his pitching hand. Also, their are many negative trends going into this series and one or more will have to reverse. The Braves are awfully terrible on the road this season (5-14) and Tom Glavine is still winless during his second tour with the Braves. For the Phillies, their blunders against left-handed pitching will have improve if they want any chance of winning this series and remaining close to the Mets and Marlins. Will all this left-handed pitching finally help Ryan Howard break him out or pound him deeper into the mud he's stuck in? Only time will tell. It should be noted that the Phillies are 8-6 against left-handed starters, but their on the field production needs to improve.


A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
