Philadelphia Phillies – J.A. Happ Pulled From Iron Pigs

     J.A. Happ was pulled last night in the 3rd inning from the Iron Pigs while playing the Richmond Braves.  Happ up to that point pitched 2 2/3 scoreless innings and was yanked off of the mound and replaced by Steve Green.  There are many rumors swirling that Happ is either being called up to Philly or has been traded off to gain another bat or lefty in the bullpen.  I also have read that Happ was seen being congratulated in the dugout after being pulled, but there was no news release as of yet.

  1. With all the pitching problems the Phillies have, it makes no sense at all that they won’t give Happ a chance.

  2. I absolutely agree . . . . . I would rather put Happ into the rotation and place Myers into the bullpen. I think it is too early to decide on how well Blanton is doing until he gets 1 or 2 more starts. Then we can decide if he needs to make a trip to the minors as well . . . . . .
