Duke probably earned himself a start down the stretch, and maybe a spot on the playoff roster.

At this moment I have more confidence in him than either Lannan or Wang, but is Duke able to go 5?

Then why wouldn't he be able to go 5 innings?

It's been a month or so, hasn't it?  Use it or lose it.  He's a 1-3 inning guy lately.

Don't know anything about Duke, but I vote Duke over Lannan (if it's against Philly) :lol:

Duke is pitching very well, and the team needs wins. Starting the 6th and 7th best guys because of contracts or past performance takes a back seat to making the playoffs.

Ho.ly.crap.

Lannan is 1-5 with a 7.06 ERA in seven career outings at Citizens Bank Park, including 1-2 with a 9.00 mark in three games last season.

There's no way I would start Lannan tonight but Zach Duke is definitely not the answer.. We are screwed.

Didn't Lannan break Chase Utley's wrist in his first start ever? Maybe I'm just feeling grumpy this morning...

Yes in Citizen's Bank Park. And Utley has owned him since then (.343/.452/.543 with 1 Double and 2 HRs in 35 ABs).

As a whole this Phillies' roster is batting: .303/.377/.448 vs Lannan with 8 Doubles, 7 HRs in 201 ABs. Every hitter they have except for maybe Rollins (.661 OPS vs Lannan) owns him.

Duke was a former All-Star with the Pirates way back when.

I have his autograph on my Pirates Italian Day hat from a rehab start. He's a nice guy. Also, he's pitching his ass off.

Why not re-instate Strasburg fro one start?  That's what I would do.

Lannan was sitting next to Gio a few days ago, and Gio got him to laugh.

John Lannan will win.

Nice start by Lannan in possibly his last game as a Nat. I still say replace Wang with Duke.

What you talking about Willis?!  LANNAN will help us win in the playoffs!  Problems have been starting AFTER you take him out.  Same with Det last night.  We need to give our starters more innings!

Lannan won't start in the playoffs. Jackson might not even start.
