Dead Start: Phillies at Rockies Game Thread, April 11, 2009

It's a gruesome fact that Phillies pitching has given up 29 runs in four games so far this season. We knew there would be some regression from last season's awesome pitching, but this has just been absurd so far.

Tonight, Brett Myers tries to stop the bleeding for the Phillies in the second game of a three game series in Colorado. Jorge De La Rosa makes his first start of the season for the Rockies.

The pitching has been inept. The hitting, outside of a couple isolated performances, has been putrid. Another April in Philliesland.
