If only the Phillies had several years worth of evidence that Vince Velasquez cannot be trusted
Both arriving in 2016, Vince Velasquez outlasted Carson Wentz in Philadelphia.
Who saw that one coming.
Vince Velasquez makes history...
per @ESPN No pitcher has had that line EVER. So there’s that.
vince velasquez after walking three batters in the inning
In a world of uncertainly, Vince Velasquez is the one thing you can always count on not being able to count on
Only Vince Velasquez could have an outing like this.
One absolutely dominant inning. 14 pitches. Strikes out the side.
Another inning where he walks in a run after loading the bases on walks.
The inconsistency is still shocking 6 years later.
The Phillies were one Vince Velasquez inning short of having a shot at this game.
They had 8 hits to the Mets’ 5.
They had 15 hard hits to the Mets’ 7.
Velasquez, David Hale, and Roman Quinn were absolute duds.
Onto the next — the Phils will look to take the series tomorrow.
Vince Velasquez faced eight batters tonight. He struck out four of them and walked four of them.
To his credit, Vince Velasquez is always very accountable and you can tell how badly he wants it. He took responsibility for the loss tonight. "It's totally unacceptable."
Vince Velasquez: “this whole loss, pretty much, is on me. And it’s totally unacceptable.”
Mets 8, Phillies 4. The Phillies will not go undefeated. Joe Girardi made a curious decision to insert Vince Velasquez into a one-run game and it unraveled from there. The Phillies are 4-1.
I wish I had as many chances in life to work my issues out as the Phillies give Vince Velasquez.
Vince Velasquez showed his good side in the sixth inning last night at Citizens Bank Park. Then he showed his bad side in the seventh. It led to the #Phillies first loss of the season. https://t.co/PFCmhF9Zj8
What should the Phillies do with Vince Velasquez?
Is he a starter? Is he a reliever? A long-man?
To put it bluntly, there’s really no place for Vince Velasquez in the #Phillies revamped reliever room:
Vince Velasquez was always good for one inning. The problem was, we never knew exactly which one. It could be the first, it could be the third. And that’s the problem with bringing him out of the bullpen. He needs to be crisp as soon as he hits the mound.
If only the Phillies had several years worth of evidence that Vince Velasquez cannot be trusted, they may have won that game last night.... 😡🤬😡🤬
