Coming into this weekend the Phillies were 3 games out of first and at the end of it they're 5 back after dropping 3 out of 4 to the Mets. The bright spot is Kyle "unbeatable" Kendrick. 4 starts and 4 wins for the Phils. His ERA is high at 4.38 but he has pitched well enough to give his team a chance.
Chase Utley will be the only Phillie starting the All-star game with pitcher Cole Hamels with 9 wins making the squad. Aaron Rowand is having a career year and he will be there. Good for our guys.
I can't argue with the All-Star teams except that Gregg Maddox wasn't picked.
