Some really great stuff posted this week on blog roll sites:


Dave Cameron of FanGraphs argued today that Shane Victorino is better than Ryan Howard.

Friend of Live From Upper Gwynedd Bill Baer of Crashburn Alley had a series of killer features. Baer points out Shane Victorino has been the backbone of the Phillies offense, explored the candidacy of a Cole Hamels AS Game Start, and explored why sticking with your starter late in the game with a big lead isn’t always the best move.

Phillies Nation and Phoul Ballz contributor Jay Floyd explored what it means for Scott Mathieson to become a starter again in Triple A.

Michael LoRe of the Express-Times covered what was a very busy June 16 for several Phillies minor leaguers.
