That is a puzzling decision on the part of the Phillies:
- J.A Happ although a rookie, posted a 12-4 record with a 2.93 ERA.
- Joe Blanton was 12-8 with a 4.05 ERA.
- Pedro was 5-1 with a 3.63 ERA but only pitched 44 innings in 9 starts all year. He missed a start due to a strained neck. You never know, but I don't like his chances in Coors Field in Denver.
