THE PHILLIES ARE in an awful slump, have dropped 11 games below .500 and have the worst record in the National League. The Tampa Bay Rays are 24-41 and have the worst record in the majors. So what are the teams doing about it? The Phillies appear to be standing pat, waiting for a hot streak, waiting for their .210, .220 and .230 hitters to catch fire and for their starting pitchers to find the strike zone. The Rays have a different approach, which is nothing new for Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon.

Antonio Bastardo had one bad inning. Cliff Lee had two bad innings. As a result, the Phillies suffered through one extremely bad day, and night, suffering a split-doubleheader loss Sunday to the Tampa Bay Rays at Citizens Bank Park. Lee allowed three runs in the second inning and two in the sixth during the Phillies' 7-3 evening loss to the Rays. After Cole Hamels had thrown seven shutout innings in Game 1, Bastardo came on in the eighth and allowed two walks and Carlos Pena's three-run home run in a 3-2 defeat.

It was a #badloss, and the line of questioning afterward appealed to Charlie Manuel about as much as his late-inning bullpen bridge to closer Jonathan Papelbon. Already grumpy after watching Antonio Bastardo turn seven shutout innings from Cole Hamels into a 3-1 deficit in the top of the eighth inning, Manuel also had to answer for his own handling of the bench Sunday as the Phillies tried to rally in the bottom of the eighth in the first game of a doubleheader. "You guys ought to sit in the dugout with me and give me all the scenarios if you don't think I know them," the manager told reporters, mixing his Southern drawl with biting sarcasm.

Phillies pitching coach Jonathan Papelbon arrives at the office, tosses his copy of the New York Times on the desk, and logs onto his computer, where an email from the team's biomechanics coach is waiting. The data from the previous night's game showed several deviations from Aaron Nola's baseline measurements. Elbow angle, stride length, hip rotation - each figure is in an area that suggests fatigue.

MASCOTS ARE supposed to romp among the fans, kiss babies, flirt with the ladies and act silly. Someone, it seems, forgot to tell that to Raymond, the blue creature (he's supposed to be a sea dog) employed by the Tampa Bay Rays. On Wednesday, in a home game against the Orioles, a fan with a sick sense of humor handed Raymond a sign. The mascot looked it over and then held it up. Bad move. As you can see from the photo, it wasn't funny. Steve Irwin, you might remember, was better known as the host of "The Crocodile Hunter" TV show.

October 2, 2011 | DAILY NEWS STAFFThose late bedtimes on school nights have to wait until the next round of the baseball playoffs for Phillies fans
The start times for the remainder of the first round were announced tonight and the Phillies and Cardinals will play at 5:07 p.m. on Tuesday in Game 3 and 6:07 p.m. on Wednesday in Game 4, if necessary. The Game 4 start time could move back to 8:07 if that is the only game, should the Brewers-Diamondbacks series end in a sweep. Both games 3 and 4 are scheduled to be in St. Louis. If Game 5 is needed, the Phillies would host an 8:37 start on Friday, if both NLDS go the distance.

THE PHILLIES have signed veteran infielder Reid Brignac to a minor league contract that includes an invitation to spring training. Brignac, who turns 28 in January, is a versatile, lefthanded-hitting reserve who provides inventory, not unlike the roles Michael Martinez and Pete Orr have held in the last few seasons. A former top prospect with the Tampa Bay Rays, Brignac hit .185 in 46 games with the Colorado Rockies and New York Yankees in 2013. Brignac is a career .221 hitter with a .573 OPS in 302 games with Tampa, Colorado and New York.

Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Alex Cobb has tendinitis in his right forearm and will miss his opening-day start against Baltimore. The team announcement Wednesday followed the 27-year-old righthander's removal after throwing three perfect innings in a 5-3 win over the Phillies on Tuesday. Cobb had an MRI after the game. The Rays hope Cobb can return in mid-to-late April. Ellsbury hurt Jacoby Ellsbury will be shut down for about one week after an MRI exam confirmed he has a mild oblique strain, the Yankees announced.

CLEARWATER, Fla. - David Buchanan will be the first to tell you he's not a strikeout pitcher. But the 25-year-old righthander will take the six he recorded Tuesday in the first three innings of the Phillies' 5-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays. "I got away with a few pitches. I'm not going to lie," he said. "Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good in this game. " Buchanan, all but a lock for the Phillies rotation in the wake of Cliff Lee's elbow injury, allowed one run on two hits in four innings.

JIMMY ROLLINS was introduced as a Dodger last week and Marlon Byrd will report to camp with the Reds, not the Phillies, when spring training begins next month. Subtracting one-fourth of the regular lineup is a start, but it's difficult to label the Phillies' rebuilding efforts this winter as anything more than minor until the biggest hurdle toward fixing the future is cleared. Ryan Howard remains a Philadelphia Phillie. The front office would like to change that fact within the next 6 weeks.

Mariners star Robinson Cano is expected to miss three to four weeks after breaking a toe during the Major League Baseball All-Stars tour of Japan. Seattle said Saturday that Cano will not need a cast and that the injury will heal with rest. He will likely be able to resume baseball activities in mid-December. The second baseman was hit by a pitch on the right foot during a 4-0 loss in Tokyo on Saturday. X-rays revealed a fracture in his small toe. Cano signed a $240 million, 10-year contract with the Mariners before last season.

CINCINNATI - Domonic Brown broke for home, but had nowhere to go. After hitting the first of back-to-back, one-out singles off Cincinnati starter Homer Bailey, Brown left third and made way for the plate when Cesar Hernandez hit a ground ball to third. With the pitcher on deck, Brown pretty much had to head home on contact. Brown was out by at least a few feet. It was the third time in less than 24 hours that a Phillies baserunner morphed into a dead duck in the 90 feet that separates third base from the plate.

What if Big Papi declared war and nobody joined up? It kind of looked that way at Fenway Park on Saturday evening, when the Tampa Bay Rays and Boston Red Sox tangled one night after David Price hit David Ortiz and Mike Carp with pitches in a 3-2 Sox win in a 10-inning game filled with beanballs, bench-clearing brawls (of the grab-your-partner do-si-do baseball type), and ejections. After Friday's game, Ortiz got all Bugs Bunny vs. Yosemite Sam about it, announcing "this means war" while preparing a Candygram rigged with a boxing glove.

Former Phillie Vance Worley allowed 11 hits and seven earned runs in Minnesota's 11-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays on Tuesday night in Fort Myers, Fla. Worley's spring ERA rose to 13.50, and he didn't get through the third inning. He is battling for the Twins' final rotation spot.   Niese returns Jonathon Niese was relieved to be back at spring training with the New York Mets after receiving a relatively good medical report. The lefthander had an MRI exam of his pitching elbow in New York on Monday, and the scan revealed he had some inflammation but no damage.
