Creeper of the Week: The Byrdman Cometh!

This is a tough one for me this week. I just attended a funeral the other day for the death of Avisail Garcia's 2014 season. We all had such high hopes here at Razzball for the winner of the Miguel Cabrera look-a-like contest. When he was with the Tigers they called him Minnie-Miggy.  He had just come off his best game of the year where he smacked two home run's and was...

Philadelphia Phillies hurt by sloppy play

It should have been the team’s first sweep of the season, as they had handled the Cubs easily in the previous two games.  However, it was clear from the start that it was not meant to happen.  Starting pitcher A.J. Burnett struggled to keep the ball in the strike zone and ended up giving up four runs in the first inning.  The Philadelphia Phillies were never able to overcome...

Philadelphia Phillies: Breaking down the outfield

The Philadelphia Phillies outfield could definitely improve after last season, and health will be a big factor in that.  Domonic Brown will continue to start in left field after finally having his breakout season last year, missing only 23 games.  Marlon Byrd mans right field after returning to Philadelphia this offseason, but he’s 36 and may not match his career year from last...

Philadelphia Phillies: Can return of familiar faces help?

First Marlon Byrd and now Bobby Abreu. Who’s next, Brett Myers? The Philadelphia Phillies continue to bring back old names  from the team’s past, and a lot of fans cannot help but question why.  Some might say that the Phillies are starting to follow in the Flyers’ footsteps of living in the past and constantly bringing back old players.  After all, why else would you bring...

Marlon Byrd signing not as bad as you think

Let me start by saying $16 million guaranteed for a player with a link to PED's who had a career year at age 36 is a ridiculous sum of money and a move that will likely fail. That said, the Marlon Byrd signing was not quite as bad as it appears...
