5 and 5

We are 12 games into the season and the Phillies are 5-7.  Not quite the start we all have hoped for, but much better than where we have come from.  Here are 5 things I am happy about and 5 things I am worried about at this point in the season.

Worried #5:
Jon Lieber- For all the talk about his catcher, Fasano didn't seem to help much in Coors.  Jon has given up 27 hits in 16 innings.  I want to believe that is an anomoly, so, he is at the bottom of the worried list.  He has to start missing more bats.

Happy #5:
Rheal Cormier- 3.6 innings pitched, no earned runs, no walks and 3 strikeouts.  Will it last?  Who knows, but I am on the Rheal bandwagon now.  Choo choo!!!
