MLB: St. Louis Cardinals at Philadelphia Phillies Kyle Ross-USA TODAY Sports

There seems to be a pattern showing up with the Phillies of late in their starting pitching. I started to notice it Sunday night when Zack Wheeler got throttled in the first inning against the Nationals. It happened again last night with Cristopher Sanchez. It seems like their more adept than in years past at ditching whatever gameplan they have coming into a game and going with a new one quickly than what they have shown in the past. I realize this is anecdotal, but I wonder how one would go about researching this.

On to the links.
