Clay Buchholz Holding Out Hope Of 2017 Return

Phillies righty Clay Buchholz isn’t counting out a late-season return, as MLB.com’s Todd Zolecki reports. He is currently in the early stages of recovery from surgery for a flexor tendon tear. The idea of making it back in September seems to represent a rather optimistic scenario for the 32-year-old hurler. While his surgery is said to come with a four-to-six month recovery...

ESPN layoffs include victims from the Phillies’ fold

Former players and beat writers lost their jobs as Bristol was hammered on Wednesday. I’ve been laid off. A lot of people who work or have worked in media have been laid off at some point. Our own John Stolnis told a particularly cruel story of his own, and his is just one of countless anecdotes from sports media that ended with a pink slip and a long walk home. Granted, the personalities...

Phillies news and links — A team worth loving

If you’re looking for reasons to love the Phillies, today’s post has that in spades. Good morning! Doesn’t it feel good to love a baseball team that doesn’t completely suck the life out of you? This team is super ultra fun, even when they lose. And believe me, they will lose this year. I’m not stupid enough to think this is going to last all season. I lived through April...

Phils win fifth straight, above .500

It was the official coming out party for Maikel Franco in tonight’s 7-4 win over the fish. The slugger entered the game with a .171 average and after a 3-for-4 day, that included a grand slam to center field, his average finally rose above the Mendoza line at .203. Our own Daniel Walsh cited Franco’s poor statistical numbers, but came to the conclusion that the third baseman...

Crashburn Roundtable: Early Season Opinions

We are roughly 3 weeks into the major league season, and the Phillies have been fairly average. That is a big improvement over the projections which still see them as one of the worst teams in baseball. Almost every part of the team has had its ups and its downs. It may be too early to make some big sweeping judgments about the season, but the staff here has some opinions on the...

Philadelphia Phillies: Aaron Altherr deserves to be an everyday starter

Last year, the door was open for Aaron Altherr to solidify his spot as a starting outfielder for the Philadelphia Phillies. Unfortunately for Altherr, a preseason wrist injury effectively ended his season before it could even begin. At 25 years old, a starting spot in the outfield was clearing his for the taking. Outfielders Peter Bourjos and Tyler Goeddel were the opening day starters...

Fact or Fiction: Nola, Hernandez and the 2017 Phillies

We’re still not even close to where we need to be to get a decent statistical sample size for the 2017 Phillies, but we can definitely start to see outliers and statistical anomalies in some performances so far. So it’s a good time to pop open the hood and take a look underneath some of the traditional stats and examine who is putting up numbers unlikely to be sustained over...

Nola Injured and the Phillies Make a Trade

The Phillies 40 man roster will be a story all year, as they navigate the 11 players they added in front of the Rule 5 draft. With Clay Buchholz’s season ending injury and Elniery Garcia’s PED suspension, the roster opened up some. This was all just in time for injuries to hit the Phillies elsewhere. The heart attack inducing injury was to Aaron Nola’s back. Right now, all...

Philadelphia Phillies: Is César Hernández the second baseman of the future?

So far this season César Hernández has been the Philadelphia Phillies best batter. Nothing against Odubel Herrera who’s certainly not disappointed at the plate, but dual combo of Hernández’s speed and contact skills have placed him on the base paths in 14 of the Phillies 17 games this season. While Hernández has been on the team for five years, he was actually signed as...
