To quote arguably the greatest boy band in history, “Quit Playing Games with my Heart.” The Red Sox just swept the Phillies in a two-game series. The Phillies sat 5 games out of the final wild-card spot with 14 games. 11 of those games were on the road, starting with the division leaders, Atlanta Braves.

The Phillies have placed Corey Dickerson on the 60-day Injured Reserve. Matt Gelb quickly confirmed the news, stating that Dickerson has a fractured foot. Dickerson had been one of the best trade deadline acquisitions. With the Phillies, Dickerson slashed .293/.307/.579. In just 34 games, Dickerson racked up 8 HR, 10 doubles, and 34 RBI. Phillies […]Read more "Instant analysis: Phillies’ Corey Dickerson out for the season"
The Phillies suffered a two-game sweep at the hands of the Boston Red Sox this weekend. Losing Saturday’s game 2-1 and Sunday’s game 6-3. In doing so they are now 4.5 games out of the second wild-card spot. Their remaining schedule doesn’t help as the teams they play still have something to play for. The […]Read more "Phillies’ have a Mountain to climb after being swept by Red Sox"
The debate has been going on for about 2 weeks now. Should the Phillies try and re-sign Corey Dickerson? Several issues come up in this discussion. Firstly, the Phillies already have several outfielders under control. Andrew McCutchen, Jay Bruce, Bryce Harper, Adam Haseley, and partly Scott Kingery are all under control in 2020. There would […]Read more "Why Adam Haseley must be the Phillies’ starting CF next season"
Not a day after posting an article praising Gabe Kapler for good managing, I must flip flop. Like a politician come election time, I must retract a previous statement on Kapler. Kapler screwed this game up. Play-by-play announcer Tom McCarthy was openly critical of his moves during the game. Apparently so were the radio announcers: […]Read more "Bad managerial decisions are starting to haunt the Phillies"
It still amazes me that the Phillies are only 2.5 games out of the wild card race. The team that hasn’t won five consecutive games continues to win a series and then lose a series. What can we fans expect out of the Phillies as they push towards the playoffs? Gabe Kapler Many fans will […]Read more "What can we expect from the Phillies down the stretch?"
A quality haircut always feels great. It leaves you refreshed and invigorated. After, you’re ready to take on the day. It’s a confidence boost that we can rely on every 3-4 months. Apparently, it was that confidence boost that has become the fuel to Rhys Hoskins’ fire. “I was joking with somebody, I think the […]Read more "Could a red-hot Hoskins fuel the Phillies through September?"
The Phillies finally won a series against a team with a losing record. Some said it was impossible, but, with a little bit of magic, the Phillies did it. It was the first time since the 1st of August that they were able to play to their level of baseball and not their competitions’. One […]Read more "Phillies were able to sink the Pirates but is there still reason for concern?"
Somehow, the Phillies still hold on to a wildcard, are tied with the Nationals, AND STILL 7 games back of the division. How that’s possible is anyone’s guess as the Phillies lost 2/3 to a team that had only won 4 games since the All-Star break. This time we’re not going in chronological order. We’re […]Read more "Series Recap: Phillies Get White Sock’d"
This was what I expected out of Klentak. The Phillies added depth players throughout the season and the trade deadline was not different. In the end, Corey Dickerson was traded for cash and a player to be named later. The 30-year-old outfielder is a rental player, meaning his contract expires at the end of this […]Read more "Klentak finalizes Phillies’ roster at the trade deadline, but is it enough?"
