Some Phillies Links for You, July 8, 2010: Shane Speaks, Buyers or Sellers?

Fans frustrate Victorino, seeking support

Shane Victorino received criticism from fans during Wednesday's 7-5 loss to the Atlanta Braves at Citizens Bank Park and it bothered him enough that he brought it up in the clubhouse afterward.

I'm sure this will play great in Northeast Philadelphia.

Phils could use help — like Cliff Lee

Would things be that much different with Lee? Hard to say. He missed the first three weeks of the season after a spring-training injury. If you take his 13 starts for Seattle and match them up with the Phillies' results on the same dates, you find nine games that probably would have had the same result. If you could magically transplant Lee's performance into the other four games, three Phillies losses would become wins and one win - by the same logic - would have been a loss. So that's a net gain of two wins, which means the Phillies would still be in third place.

Wow, this is... needlessly complicated!
