Without the big three on the mound throughout the season being effective over the long haul the championship would be much harder to get. Pitching is everything.
Rollins is key to the success of the Phils. When he is hot so are the Phils. It's nice to see Ryan get off to a good start, he looks like he is staying on the pitches a little longer this year, maybe getting closer to the plate is the answer. Very pleased with Francisco, if he continues to play well the fans will forget JW a lot quicker !!
All of the above were great to see. I picked Jimmy because of Friday's come from behind win (which I thought was the most encouraging thing this weekend.) Jimmy led off the ninth with a single, and then steals third, starting the rally. I am encouraged when I see the big time leaders on this team play as if they are big time leaders. So, hats off to Jimmy and let's keep this ball rolling!
I voted for Rollins. It's great to see Francisco contributing (and making up for some awkward defense from earlier), but Rollins is more of a key because he's going to play in the majority of the games and he's in the 3-hole.
I agree with AFN. Fransico is going to have a ton of opportunities to knock in runs, and it's very encouraging that he is capitalizing early.
Seems weird to me to vote for anything other than Francisco. All the other factors are somewhat predictable. Maybe Rollins makes sense.
Seeing Jimmy (and some of the others) playing some small ball and not trying to aim for the hills at each at bat.
I am also greatly encouraged by Jimmy getting on base. But seeing the big guy coming through - hey, he IS the reason why we are riding this wave since 2005 (his rookie season).
