They talk about the judicious use of the curveball, which through Tuesday, was on pace to break the modern record set by the 2012 Pirates. The common thread? Charlie Morton, the all-time leader in PitchFX stat Spin Rate measuring the rotations per minute on curveball.Next, the bullpen is discussed. David Hernandez is on pace (93) to break Kent Tekulve's 1987 single-season Phillies record for appearances in a season (90) but will he even last through April? Hector Neris has been discussed as a positive surprise and the shuffling of closers through Dailier Hinojosa to Jeanmar Gomez is discussed. Can Gomez be a long term option?

Best name gets a prize as Ian catches up with previous prizes awarded for past winners!Thanks for listening!

  • Phillies Nation 2016 Podcast Episode 4 - Catchers, The Outfield, and the Beatles
    Thu, Mar 10, 2016

    On this episode of the Phillies Nation Podcast, Ian Riccaboni returns from Vermont and Steve Corino returns from his 80th (!) trip to Japan to discuss:- A large majority of young Phillies' hitters are hitting well so far. Is the success in small samples more indicative of hitters being ahead of pitchers early in Spring, statistical anomaly, or a sign that the Phillies should get the permits for the World Series parade ready?- There are likely two catching spots. Carlos Ruiz likely has one. Which hot-hitting catcher out of Cameron Rupp, J.P. Arencibia, Andrew Knapp, and Jorge Alfaro starts the year alongside Chooch in Philly?- Darin Ruf hit two homers and has been hitting well while Ryan Howard is ill. How realistic is it that Ruf starts at first base, Howard gets cut, and or Brock Stassi sees time at first base?- Aaron Altherr has broken his left wrist - with Cody Asche battling an oblique injury, who becomes the third starting outfielder next to Peter Bourjos in left and Odubel Herrera in center? Can Tyler Goedel, Cedric Hunter, and David Lough all make the team and will those three plus Bourjos and Herrera be your outfield all season?- Phillies starters have been pitching well, but what do Ian and Steve think about the bullpen? With David Hernandez out, is there a clear closer? Does there need to be?- The Beatles?! Reflect on the passing of George Martin and debate which Beatle had the best solo catalog!– Last week’s trivia question answer and this week’s trivia question for a great prize!Be sure to Rate, Review, and Subscribe on iTunes and Like on SoundCloud!Next week: Ian and Steve will be LIVE from the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia prior to the Ring of Honor event!
