I thought it would be fun to keep track of how the Phillies' players who are in the WBC are doing.
Hitters (Name Country AVG/OBP/SLG/OPS):
Bobby Abreu VEN .214/.389/.214/.603 in 14 AB
Tomas Perez VEN ---- (has not batted -- sensible)
Carlos Ruiz PAN .000.333/.000/.333 in 6 AB (eliminated)
Chase Utley USA .333/.333/.333/.667 in 9 AB
Pitchers (Name Country ERA/WHIP Innings):
Eude Brito DR 0.00/1.00 in 1 inning
Rheal Cormier CAN 0.00/1.80 in 1 2/3 innings (eliminated)
Scott Mathieson CAN 0.00/1.00 in 1 inning (eliminated)
Aaron Myette CAN 13.50/1.50 in 2/3 inning (eliminated)
Robinson Tejeda DR
Somebody explain to me why, when C.C. Sabathia pulled out, he was replaced by 178-year-old Al Leiter rather than, say, Brett Myers, who clearly wanted to play in the WBC?
