You are absolutley correct about Piere, and keep those awesome stats coming on Pence and Shane.


Pierre did some help yesterday, why is everyone down on this guy? His attitude of get on base and create chaos is what is needed. I think, frankly, he is a problem for Rollins who is undoubtedly the WORST lead off hitter in the major league. He may field, but he needs to be about the eighth place hitting or maybe after the pitcher. He didn't earn the name Jimmie Pop up for nothing. This team seems to go from horrible to what our grandson would say "bad". A long look at Lee and really, don't the Dodgers want him?

Joyce, no one is down on the guy. The veteran was productive and he only has a couple years left. The Phillies are keeping him on the bench and not playing him (as they should since we need to see how the young guys do). Pierre should be helping a team with a chance.


Listen to the Phillies broadcast and read the info posted on Facebook and then you understand why I feel everyone has him as a downer. I think he is exciting. He makes the pitcher pretty uptight, which can't hurt the Phillies. Interesting that he scored the winning run yesterday.
