2015 Player Review: Freddy Galvis

My favorite episode of “Community” is season three’s “Remedial Chaos Theory,” in which six realities are presented, each contingent on one friend’s removal from a housewarming party to pay for pizza. The idea is to show how a close group of people interact when you take someone out of the equation; or, to show one person’s impact on the group structure. If you haven’t...

Riddle Me This- Playing Time for Freddy Galvis

Ryne Sandberg has gone on record as to wanting to keep his bench bats fresh.  Not sure why when the bench consists of perennial duds like Jayson Nix, Freddy Galvis, and John Mayberry. But hey, I'm not a MLB manager.  The one that baffles me the most is Galvis, who is batting a robust .056 (1-18).  Through parts of 3 seasons he's a career .223/.624 hitter with atrocious on base...

Phillies Nation Player Review: Freddy Galvis

(AP) Going into the 2013 season, the Phillies knew what they had with Freddy Galvis. A guy who could play with anybody defensively, but had trouble handling the bat. His 2013 season further justified the Phillies’ beliefs. There’s no doubt that Galvis is a gifted defender. He has a natural ability to handle the glove and watching him play defense is truly a pleasure. But as we...
