    I wouldn't bring him in that late though, after Neris he has the worst WHIP on the team among active players, just too many walks. I like Morgan though, just think maybe they should have looked at someone else. They have clearly given Dominguez a large role but I think Arano should get more looks going forward, it's too bad he was injured as he had gotten off to a great start.

    This guy literally walks a batter an inning. How can they not score?

    Does Kapler practice Voodoo? He might need to check in with Jobu to see if he can wake up the bats.

    The phillies ability to hit ever since they were caught stealing signs from the bullpen in 2010 has never been the same. Maybe we need to go back to our old ways.

    I saw the stat track for where the balls are. This guy is painting corners and the umps are giving him nothing. Holy ****.

    Well, I'm officially old. The son of one of my best childhood friends, the goalkeeper on our soccer team, just had his son drafted by the Blue Jays.

    Phillies are losing close games...it happens to young teams. They'll figure it out.

    Phils are young and will be better but teams like the Yanks, Sox, and even the Braves in our own division are just as young and even more talented. Major upgrades are still needed.

    I'll get to see them up close tonight. 1st Phils game since maybe 2015 or 16.

    I'm not sure how semantical we want to get.

    Phils average age 26.6

    Sox - 28
    Braves - 27.7
    Yanks - 27.6

    There are 2 teams with players average 26.

    The White Sox (who suck) are the only other ones.

    I think the Phils are holding their own.

    He’s most likely going to have to get it at some point. They knew he had a partial tear before they signed him.

    Williamsport.


    Cole Stobbe just came back and I guess they want him to get the 3B reps in Lakewood. Guess Bohm could finish the year in Clearwater if he rakes in Williamsport.

    Well if the guy can hit, you'd think he should do very well there.

    Kind of wish I was still in Wilpo to go see him play.

    I wonder if just 1 of kingery, franco, and crawford will be able to hit well enough to be a long term solution in the infield

    Idk what they are doing with Kingery. He is not a SS. He’s fine in a pinch but with Crawford healthy, JP should be playing SS if he is in the lineup. They have him in the 3 hole for some reason. Someday sure but right now he is getting eaten alive. He’s down 0-2 every AB and is chasing pitches out of the zone as a result. He’s going to be a good player but it’s going to take some time.

    Only two games but JP has hit some balls hard and he was starting to hit before he went on the DL. At the very least I know JP will give good ABs and work counts and not swing at ****ty pitches. I know I was one of the few that still believed in JP when he was struggling in AAA. I just think his approach is too good not to produce results and I think he has sneaky pop.

    Franco’s time is up here. It’s a shame considering how his career started, but he’s shown no progression. If he’s on the roster he should only play against LHP’s.

    JP has a lot going for him in terms of age and talent but he is the guy i include in any proposal for Machado. Maybe bmore can talk themselves into something like that.

    You don’t trade someone like JP for 3 months of Machado. That’s dumb.
