Park may be added for NLCS; BetUs

Chan Ho Park may be added to the Phillies' roster for the NLCS. He threw a bullpen session in Clearwater and is flying to Los Angeles to join the team. Should he join the roster, someone would have to be removed. Who, in my mind, should be a no-brainer: Kyle Kendrick.

Park will be a long reliever out of the bullpen, just as Kendrick is. Kendrick is also the one starting pitcher on the roster who will not make a postseason start. He is expendable and Park would be an upgrade out of the 'pen.

No announcement has been made by either team regarding their starting pitchers for tomorrow's Game 1, but the Phillies will send Cole Hamels to the mound at Dodger Stadium.

Now that the Phillies don't play every day, sports fans across the Deleware Valley need something else to watch. While the Phillies and Flyers are primed to make championship runs, the Eagles are back on track and rolling over opponents every week. Donovan McNabb and Brian Westbrook are back in the lineup, Jeremy Maclin is emerging into a talented wideout, but their defense has been one of their biggest weapons this season.

If you do any kind of sports betting, a major stat for you to bet on in any sport is defense and even in the NFL, defenses win championships (i.e. Pittsburgh Steelers vs Arizona Cardinals). The Eagles’ D has been extraordinary so far, forcing nine interceptions (only the Saints are better with 10) and 13 sacks this season. They also rank second in the league in total defense.

Also keep in mind in close games forcing turnovers is a huge edge for any team and Philadelphia has a lot of play makers in the secondary.

In every Power Ranking listing in the nation the Eagles are on the rise every week as their defense seem to be stronger with every game they play
