Notes From The Phillies’ 4-3 Loss To Toronto

howardThe Philadelphia Phillies lost their first game of Grapefruit League play on Wednesday afternoon.

  • Roberto Hernandez got the start, and allowed two runs on four hits over two innings. 
  • Hernandez got the first two outs in the first inning, and then allowed a solo shot to Jose Bautista.
  • In the second inning, Hernandez gave up back-to-back doubles to allow the second run to score before working his way out of the inning.
  • Phillippe Aumont took over for Hernandez in the third, and allowed two runs on one hit and two walks.
  • Antonio Bastardo threw a scoreless inning.
  • Jeff Manship pitched two scoreless frames with three strikeouts.
  • Kevin Munson cleaned up the game with a scoreless frame.
  • Ryan Howard delivered an RBI single in his first at-bat. The RBI hit came against left-handed pitcher J.A. Happ.
  • Marlon Byrd went 1-2 and drove in a run.
  • Bobby Abreu went 0-1 with two walks.
  • Domonic Brown went 1-3 and left two runners on base.
  • Carlos Ruiz went 0-2 with three runners left on.
  • Cody Asche and Maikel Franco went a combined 0-3.
  • Franco committed a throwing error in the field.
  • The Phillies got a look at some of their former top prospects in this game. J.A. Happ got the start for Toronto, and lasted just one inning after allowing two runs on four hits with a walk. Kyle Drabek, the centerpiece of the Roy Halladay trade, pitched 1.2 innings and gave up three walks.

Final Thoughts

Its now or never for Phillippe Aumont.

The former top prospect has had plenty of time to develop in the minor leagues, and its time for him to either make an impact on the big leagues or its time for the Phils to give up on him.

Aumont didn’t do himself any favors in this game, starting out his Spring with a poor performance.

Aumont began the inning with back-to-back walks. He didn’t throw a strike to either of those hitters. Both walks came on four straight balls. There’s no way the Phillies are going to trust him in tight situations in the regular season if he’s going to hand out free passes at such an alarming rate.

At what point does this guy learn how to throw a strike?

Notes From The Phillies’ 7-5 Loss To Toronto


  • Anyone find out why Jimmy Rollins was so late getting to the Ball Park

  • you and I know answer to that question he just don’t give a crap

    • Funny the sixers are retiring the number of a one time mvp that skiipped practice, was late everyday…. you two have no idea about what is going on with rollins…none yet you just ramble nonsense

      • Just a bad sign right of out the gate for Camp..
        Believe it or not, some Younger Players may look up to Rollins and he’s setting a bad tone and has been a festering cancer for about 3 years now..
        He’s become to into his own thing.. Remember when he was younger, brash, and was a real vocal leader of the Team.. He has fallen into the hum-drum of a highly-paid athlete who simply goes thru the motion
        who is collecting a nice big Paycheck..
        I have not liked his attitude for a the last few Years..

        • you gathered that hes’ a cancer by all the time you have spent in the locker room and with the players? in your conversations with him what is it about his attitude don’t you like?
          why was he late paul? tell us so we know how in fact its a bad sign????
          if he was being a punk and caused his lateness I will bury him… but i don’t know any facts…. so give us some facts not out of your cuckoo little mind

  • cigar get a life and stop with your moronic stupid bullshit, you’re the one that has no clue u just want to be belligerent with everyone if u like him thats your business but dont act like u know what the fuk is goin on when you r clueless big time clueless yea u think AI was right what he use to do too! told u stop smoking the gungi and start smokin the real cgars

    • some people bash guys for no sound reason, just bash players on their team out of speculation.

      some guys give their players the benefit of the doubt or dont judge until the facts are revealed.

      its kind of the way the world works. one type of individual is a realist and the other is a drama queen…

      thats my 2 cents

    • I don’t know what went on moron…. And NEITHER do you!
      As for AI there is no comparison with his bullshit and jimmy… AI is a bankrupt loser

    • Henski just called you a queen btw!

      • Ai has more money than any poster on here will ever have. He is not broke and never will be. All that broke & bankrupt stuff is overly exaggerated. Ai has over 50 mill coming to him in deferred payments (one of his money mangers were smart…)

        Can’t disagree with loser though. He through his then wife and baby mama out of the house naked, no need to say any more.

        He was one helluva warrior when he played though. He threw himself at guys a foot taller than him and 100 pounds heavier nightly. Guy always laid it on the line

        • warrior… ok but unfortunately didn’t prepare for war the way the best warriors do….

  • I don’t hive a shit what these guys make but to call Rollins a cancer is inflammatory and stupid

    Rollins is one if the greatest Phillies of all time

    Paulman you need to stop instigating, inflamming
