The Angels are taking him back.
The Phillies tried to work out a trade with the Angels to keep Mosebach, but the Angels were not interested. Mosebach went 0-0 with a 9.39 ERA in 7 2/3 innings in the Grapefruit League, but the Phillies liked his arm.
Ruben Amaro Jr. announced that Chan Ho Park beat J.A. Happ for the fifth starter’s job. Happ’s fate with the team has not been decided, although Amaro said Happ, Gary Majewski, Jack Taschner and Bobby Mosebach are comepting for two bullpen jobs.
Amaro also said the Phillies have contacted the agent for Gary Sheffield, who the Tigers just released. Sheffield could be a bit now that the Phillies have released Geoff Jenkins.
Park said he will make his debut April 12 against the Rockies in Denver.
The Yankees absolutely smoked the Phillies today at George M. Steinbrenner Field, 12-0.
Phillies manager Charlie Manuel couldn’t have been more upset with the way his team played in the field. I normally cringe when a manager or pitcher says he threw better than his line indicated, but that was the case with Kendrick. Kendrick allowed five runs in four innings, but he got no help defensively. Bobby Mosebach had a similar problem when he pitched.
Charlie, the defense. Your thoughts?
“We had some shabby defense,” Manuel said. “(Kendrick’s) line definitely should have been better. We made mistakes. We made a hell of a lot of (bleeping) mistakes. That was really a nice game. I think any game like that (ticks) you off, but the best thing you can do is (bleeping) go out there and get on the bus and forget about that son of a (gun). Yeah, that was a horse (bleep, bleeping) game. If I played in that (bleeping) game I definitely (bleeping) would take a good inventory of myself. That was a horse (bleep) game. They don’t get no better than that. God (darn) it, that’s terrible.
“I’d say we kind of (bleeping) hit rock bottom there for a while.”
