The Absolute Best Reason to Watch a Phillies Game this Year

Things have been tough for the Phillies and their fans this season. Not a lot of wins, young players like Maikel Franco and Vince Velasquez are more disappointing than exciting and many of the offseason acquisitions aren’t working out. But one of those newcomers is. One is making all the difference in the world to this team and its loyal fans. And this acquisition may be the single...

Scott Kingery clubs two home runs in second career Triple-A game

The legend of Scott Kingery continues. Late Sunday night, upon hitting .313 with 18 home runs in Double-A Reading, Kingery was promoted to Triple-A Lehigh Valley. The second baseman is now on the fast track to the big leagues, and is primed to be in Philadelphia sooner rather than later. Kingery’s power surge was a surprise in Reading this year, and many wondered if he could sustain...

Who will represent the Phillies at the All-Star Game?

With voting set to end tomorrow night, no Phillies have received enough votes to earn a starting role on this year’s National League All-Star team. In fact, no Phillie ranks in the top five in his position – or the top 15 for outfielders – in votes received. Voting isn’t exactly a fair measure of merit – Kyle Schwarber has received nearly a million votes and ranks eighth...

On the Pathetic Phillies

I was cruising FanGraphs this week, desperately looking for something interesting to write about. You see, the Phillies, as you may have noticed, are soul-crushingly bad this season. There are only so many times you can look for silver linings or potential improvements before it becomes an exercise in futility. Therefore, I’ve decided to lean in to the madness. The Phillies leaders...

Is trading Franco the right move?

It’s no secret that the Philadelphia Phillies have severely underperformed this season. The biggest problem the team has had is the disappearance of Maikel Franco, who is now reportedly on the trade block. In just one year, the Philadelphia Phillies have gone from a surprisingly mediocre (when expected to be terrible) team with several building […] Philadelphia Phillies: Is trading...

Philadelphia Phillies: Is Rhys Hoskins the next Ryan Howard or Darin Ruf?

The Philadelphia Phillies are no strangers to prolific hitting first base prospects. Once upon a time, a 24 year-old first baseman started his first stint in AA Reading. 374 at bats, 37 home runs, 107 RBIs, and an encyclopedia worth of broken records later, Ryan Howard was on the fast track to the majors and would soon have a Rookie of the Year and MVP under his belt. Several years...

The Baltimore Orioles tied an MLB record they can’t be proud of

In mid-May, the Baltimore Orioles were 10 games over .500 and one of the clear surprises in baseball. Even entering June 8th, they were five games over .500, right in the thick of the AL East race and the AL Wild Card race.While the Orioles were playing well, the computers and projection systems weren’t buying it, and waited for the Orioles to regress. That’s happened. Baltimore...

Philadelphia Phillies trade rumors: Pat Neshek edition

When you think of Pat Neshek, you don’t think of someone who would be leading the entire MLB in ERA at a 0.64 mark. While there’s no doubting the Philadelphia Phillies bullpen has been one of the leaking holes of the team, Neshek has so far proved to be an exemplary free agent signing. His pitch delivery is not only interesting to watch as a fan, but leaves batters nothing short...

Matt Stairs on the ABCs of Hitting (The B Is Bad)

Matt Stairs loves to teach hitting, and he has plenty of teaching to do. The 49-year-old former slugger is in his first season as Philadelphia’s hitting coach, and given the youthfulness of the Phillies lineup, he’s got his hands full. Raw talent dots the roster, but that’s essentially what it is. Finished products are in short supply. Stairs isn’t heavy-handed with his...
