Earlier in the week, Baseball America released its preseason top 100 prospect list. The Phillies found themselves with 2 players listed within the top 100. More importantly, both were listed among the top 30 prospects in all of baseball.

It’s no secret that the Philadelphia Phillies’ inability to not only draft talent, yet develop as well has been poor over the years. Sure, they lucked out with the last names of Hamels, Howard, Utley, Nola, and (maybe) Hoskins and Haseley. However, overall, it’s justified to not over hype any prospects in our pipeline. But, […]Read more "With Phillies low on pitching options, Spencer Howard could be the answer"
This past MLB draft, the Phillies loaded up pitching. After picking stud short stops Bryson Stott and Jamari Baylor in the first and third round, the ballclub selected pitcher Erik Miller in the fourth round (120 overall). Miller’s availability at this stage in the draft was a surprise. He was ranked 61 on by the […]Read more "Phillies prospect Erik Miller opens up on his whirlwind 2019 season"

It’s no secret. The Phillies are the worst team in major league baseball. With 3/4 of the season in the books, the Phillies are hurdling to the first overall pick in next year’s draft. But instead of talking new prospects, maybe it’s time we start free agent signings. The Phillies have money to burn (hopefully they don’t […]Read more "Six free agent signings that make sense for the Phillies"
Aaron Nola has been fantastic over the last two months. The rest of the rotation? That’s been a bit of different story. Jared Eickhoff has been a shell of his 2016 self. Vince Velasquez has been spotty at best. He’s shown flashes of brilliance, but has also had some extremely rough outings. The moral of […]Read more "Phillies Promote Two Top Pitching Prospects: Everything You Need To Know"
