Right. Howard is taking up a spot that could be more productive. And it’s unlikely the phillies will have to eat ALL his salary. Even saving $5MM out of the $25MM owed would allow the phillies to pursue some […]
lionelhutz commented on the post, Writer’s Roundtable: Who Should We Blame For This Mess? 1 year ago
I blame Amaro. He’s the GM and as such is the architect of the team. Poor talent evaluation- on him. Failure to embrace advanced analytics – on him. Long contracts for Paps, Ibanez, Polanco – on him. Belief that […]
If the prospect haul were great, I’d trade Hamels within the division. The Phillies need all the help they can get and it’s unlikely they will be serious contenders for some time. Its not like they will be facing […]
While I’m not a huge fan of the three year deal for Chooch, given the options out there- which Corey addresses, I think the signing isn’t all that bad. One thing that appears to get overlooked is Chooch’s effect […]
Yes. This is the type of signing that brought them a world series. (Werth, Victorino…etc…Ok it also brought Mayberry but lets not split hairs). Point is, cheap with upside is better than win now, expensive, […]
Pirates! But for the Pens, I got not one problem with Pittsburgh. Underrated city, good sports fans, long dormant baseball team with a great stadium. What’s not to like.
In the AL, Tigers. I just love me some […]

Amaro is classless.
The guy wins 5 straight NL east titles (or whatever it was), a World Series, another NL pennant and is the best manager in the last 30 years and Amaro fires him mid-season when it was Amaro […]
This is a great topic. Reminds me why I love baseball.
Continuing on the “Ryan Howard was a monster once” trend:
The most memorable home-run iv’e seen in person was Ryan Howard’s rocket blast off of Mike […]

…..and Ben Revere broke his foot. Awesome.
Just when he was playing well. Shame.

Not until they can get 3-4 games over .500 and stay there for a few weeks will I believe this team has a chance to do something.
THe team is just deeply flawed and therefore inconsistent. After 80 games it is […]

I like to see the Phillies winning but I fear that some mid-july run will only embolden RAJ to not make the changes that are required for the long term health of this team.
It’s nice to see the Phillies win. Always. But does anybody seriously believe this is a playoff team? They have show that they are a 500 team. They don’t play steady enough defense, don’t run the bases well […]

Trade ‘em all.
I know this will make Tommy in Bensalem upset (first time, long time) ’cause this team got a chance ya know. just need dem guys to get to hittin’ season. But really, it’s over. […]
Ugh….this team is going to kill me. IF they “hang around” 500 they aren’t going to make the moves they need to sure up their future. While it’s nice to see them hit right now, they simply aren’t a team built […]

Well, Dom Brown proving he can play solves some offseason questions.
Looks we’re only looking for 1.5 outfielders (the .5 is based on the chance Revere proves he can at play).
THis isn’t a winning team. Too […]
It’s a bad team. For sure.
Keeping the “core” intact would be negligent.
It’s clear you gotta move on….Shame Hamels stinks this year. He was such a hot commodity last season.
Most interestingly, this essentially means the Red Sox have 16.8MM in 2015 to spend on a pitcher without replacing a player. So there isn’t a financial crunch in 2014 if they wanted to say…i dunno…pay Cliff […]
While I don’t like revere, I think you need to keep him going forward. He can provide defensive value and is young and cheap. If we’re serious about rebuilding (and it’s fairly evident we need to be) you are […]
Rube stinks. Everything that takes a “decision” he screws up.
How many nights can ownership sit and watch this putrid offense? I know they are making money in massive heaps but that can’t compensate for the stink coming from the plate.
The phillies just don’t get on […]
