He's Da Man
He's been tremendous. Where would this bullpen be right now without Bastardo and Stutes?
I remember his major league debut against the Padres. Threw straight gas but lacked that second pitch. Give him and the coaches in the minors credit. He is more then I ever expected him to be. Just awesome that we have a guy just about as good as Venters

Though the comparisons are interesting:
Venters: 38 2/3 IP, 17 H, 2 ER, 11 BB, 40 K, 0.47 ERA, 0.724 WHIP, .137 BAA, 4/11 inherited runners scored.
Bastardo: 23 2/3 IP, 11 H, 3 ER, 12 BB, 29 K, 1.14 ERA, 0.972 WHIP, .139 BAA, 2/18 inherited runners scored.
Come to think of it, he looks pretty damn close to Venters statistically. Only difference is that Venters is the Braves' setup guy, and Bastardo SHOULD BE the Phillies setup guy.
Damn those are good numbers, for both guys
We win the age game. Bastardo is 25, Venters is 26
also winning inherited runners which is good to see
