To John Middleton, We haven’t had the chance to meet yet, but when you were set to take over as majority owner of the Phillies, I had hope that you would restore this team to its former glory. When you brought in Matt Klentak and Andy MacPhail, I was excited to see how a modern […]Read more "A Letter to Phillies’ Owner John Middleton"
Sorry, Bryce Harper, JT Realmuto isn’t going to stay with the Phillies. If reports are true, Realmuto’s eyes are set on around $200 million for his next contract. Joe Mauer holds the record for annual average value for a catcher with $23 million per year in his 8-year/ $184 million contract. That contract extension kicked […]Read more "Should the Phillies set their sights on James McCann?"
For some inexplicable, unfathomable, bizarre reason or another, the Phillies STILL have yet to extend (best) catcher (in baseball) J.T Realmuto. Despite leading all qualifying catchers (3.1 PA/team game played) in home runs (11) and RBIs (32), as well as recording the second-most hits (46), Realmuto still has not accomplished enough to persuade the Phillies […]Read more "Latest comments from Phillies owner don’t bode well for J.T Realmuto"
Matt Klentak is no longer the Phillies GM! It finally happened. The Philadelphia Phillies have officially moved on from Klentak as their team’s general manager. While it came via the form of a resignation as opposed to an outright firing, the result is the same. Klentak is no longer the GM, and his inability to […]Read more "LISTEN: Matt Klentak is gone emergency Phillies podcast"
Just under two weeks and 15 games have passed since our midway review of the 2020 Phillies season. The Phillies have gone 8-7 in that stretch with a record of 23-22. Following Sunday’s doubleheader sweep by Miami, the Marlins have claimed second place with a half-game lead over the Phillies at 23-21. Rather than looking […]Read more "Storylines to Watch in Final Stretch of Phillies Season"
The Phillies are now riding a 3-game win streak after gaining the upper hand on the Nationals in the first 2 games of the series. The Phillies led the charge in choosing to postpone the final game of the series in solidarity with the protests of police brutality, which are ongoing across the country and […]Read more "What we learned in a pair of promising Phillies wins over Nationals"
The Philadelphia Phillies have been two completely different teams all in one this season. After a dreaded start to the season, the Phillies rattled off four straight wins, before losing the back half of a quick two game series against the Boston Red Sox. Despite the constant struggle of that bullpen, the Phillies bats have […]Read more "Phillies look to keep their hot bats Against Blue Jays"
To begin this season, we’ve seen the Phillies struggle. And by struggle, they struggled bad. Their bullpen has been atrocious, leading to Joe Girardi having to try a bunch of different options. Again, all of which were simply just bad. However, the relievers have been starting to perform at a slightly less historically bad rate. […]Read more "Phillies’ bats, led by a goose, are red hot to start the season"
There are three guarantees in life: death, taxes, and the Phillies dropping a series to the Marlins to begin an underwhelming season. From there, things have not really gotten much better. The Phillies are coming off of a devastating, and incredibly embarrassing, series sweep of the Baltimore Orioles. In that series, the Phillies had multiple […]Read more "Phillies look to bounce back against Mets: Series Preview"
The Phillies season is now underway and they have found an unlikely leader that has provided a spark for the team. Phil Gosselin has gone to the plate just 6 times so far this year, yet he has 2 home runs and 4 total hits. Gosselin is local to the Philly area. He graduated from […]Read more "Phillies May Have Found Their New “Golden Goose”"
