Lakewood manager Greg Legg, Image- Jay Floyd Earlier this weekend, I sat down with Class A Lakewood manager Greg Legg, who has been in the Phillies organization for the past 33 years, after being drafted by the club in 1982.  He managed the BlueClaws in their inaugural season in 2001, managed Double-A Reading from 2002 to 2004, was the skipper for Class A Advanced Clearwater from...

Phillies Land Gabriel Lino in Thome Trade

It’s not often I head to the park having never heard of a catcher only to leave believing he was a future big leaguer.

He's also left-handed, as is Chris Davis and (effectively, with his platoon...

Early Prospect Sleepers: Austin, Davis, Herrera, Lino

During the off-season, the one prospect question I never seem to have an answer for in chats is, “give me a sleeper prospect for the upcoming season.” For me, sleeper prospects are discussed throughout the season as a player’s performance is perceived as far more impressive than the prospect chatter surrounding said player. In 2011, a few sleeper favorites included Rangers...
