Series Preview: Philadelphia Phillies (43-75) vs. San Francisco Giants (48-74)

This weekend’s four-game series against the San Francisco Giants will be like looking into a mirror for the Phillies. Both teams are experiencing disappointing seasons, to say the least.

Refuting some very wrong thoughts about Aaron Nola

David Cameron of Fangraphs says the Phillies should trade Aaron Nola because he’s more injury-prone than most. It’s no secret that Aaron Nola’s elbow injury scared the crap out of everybody last year. In his last eight starts of the 2016 season, he was a totally different pitcher than he had been in 2015 and his first 12 starts of ‘16, posting a 9.82 ERA before finishing...

Phillies need to focus on free agent pitchers, not position players

This past offseason, General Manager Matt Klentak wanted to bolster his corner outfield spots, both being two of the weakest positions in all of baseball last season. Klentak did that, in theory, by signing nine-year veteran Michael Saunders and 12-year veteran Howie Kendrick. The Saunders signing turned out to be a disaster, as the Phillies DFA’d the $9 million outfielder in June...

Rhys Hoskins Was Brilliant After His First Major League Home Run

You can judge a man on the way they react to unexpected awkwardness. I, for example, facing the prospect of a strange encounter, freeze up like a fainting goat and look down at my all-consuming connected light device, my iPhone. But not Rhys Hoskins. Oh no– perhaps with a bit of forethought, the Phillies rookie played it off so well after hitting his first Major League home run...

Projecting Rhys Hoskins

It’s been a rough season for the Phillies, whose record is the worst in baseball and sits comfortably below .400. They’ve trotted out quite a few bad players on a regular basis, including Tommy Joseph, who’s given them four months of disappointment at first base. While Joseph was turning in a 90 wRC+ with poor defense, Rhys Hoskins was annihilating Triple-A. Finally, the Phillies...

How Daulton, Carman had a special relationship until the end

In a long Major League Baseball career, one might have hundreds of players who they call teammates, but only a select few that they can call true friends once they play their final game.

Philadelphia Phillies great Darren Daulton passes away

Philadelphia Phillies: J.P. Crawford is beginning to resurge in Triple-A

There have always been high expectations placed on J.P. Crawford‘s shoulders ever since he was selected in the first round of the MLB draft in 2013, the first shortstop taken off of the board. That pressure is of course magnified when the preceding shortstop is Jimmy Rollins, a key piece of the Phillies World Series core. Still, Crawford handled the expectations and pressure excellently...
