Van Swirley: Phillies at Mets Game Thread, April 29, 2011

If you find yourself cursing Joe Blanton's absence, try to remind yourself that it could be worse; you could be watching Kyle Kendrick start his first game of the season tonight. Instead, you will be watching the Legend of Pitcher Vance (Worley) who in 22.2 innings with the Iron Pigs has registered a 2.78 ERA and a 3.77 FIP. John Sickels says he's good enough to be a 4th starter. Since on this team he's a 5th starter, everything should be okay.

He'll be opposed by BIG PELF, who really really sucks at pitching. Among those with 20 innings pitched or more, his xFIP is the second worse in the NL at 5.58.
