J.P. Crawford on fast track to replace Rollins

J.P. Crawford – Photo Credit – Tom Hagerty There is no easy task in professional sports. It’s not easy to become and remain a starting shortstop with a Major League Baseball team, especially when you are heralded as the guy replacing a legend on that club. New York Yankees shortstop Didi Gregorious will soon find that out as he has the task of replacing Derek Jeter. That is...

The Sad End of an Era

Hearing the news of Jimmy Rollins being traded to the Dodgers wasn’t shocking, but it was quite saddening. As the first piece of this core group of players to be dealt, the J-Roll deal signals the end of a very memorable era of Phillies baseball. When I look back on this core group of players, I’ll instantly think about those five straight NL East championships, the potent offense...

Have the Winter Meeting Moves Made the Los Angeles Dodgers Better?

Baseball’s Winter Meetings were held in San Diego this year. But it was another California city that stole the show. No team, save for Billy Beane’s Oakland A’s, has had a more radical transition to a roster this off-season. Consider everything that went down for the Dodgers since just Wednesday. In the middle of the afternoon, the Dodgers traded for the Philadelphia Phillies’...

Philadelphia Phillies showing commitment to their rebuild

This past week has been one of the busiest weeks in recent Phillies history. Last week, I wrote about how I would be surprised to see Rollins or Utley go, given their value to the city beyond just baseball and now, a week later, Rollins is gone. The caveat was if the team got an offer they couldn’t refuse or if the player decided to take one last go at a title. Both of these...

Be very afraid of the revamped Los Angeles Dodgers

Just when we had gotten use to the new Los Angeles Dodgers and their bottomless, oft-used wallet, they’ve gone and changed it up once again. There was once a time where the Dodgers couldn’t say no to an expensive veteran and could give a contract extension to just about anyone on the roster. They were a good team, but not the elite team many had thought they could become. But...

Eflin & Windle may be heading to Philly for Rollins; moves lost in the shuffle

So many Dodgers moves were made on Wednesday that it was really overwhelming. I must’ve made about 500 cocaine/meth jokes about Andrew Friedman and Farhan Zaidi the other night, simply because I was exhausted just watching all this unfold, and you know they didn’t sleep for like four days. Understandably then, some minor moves got lost in the shuffle, along with some news we’ve...

Elephant in the Room: Who Replaces Rollins?

As you know by now, Jimmy Rollins is on his way to Los Angeles. After the dust clears, there will be baseball to play and a short stop position to field in 2015. So just what options do the Phillies have? Unfortunately, with a tight budget and no urgency to win in 2015, not many. The Obvious Candidate Freddy Galvis Galvis, still just 25 years old, started 23 games for the Phillies...

The Night That Blew Up Baseball

I’m shocked. I’m floored, really, at what’s happened in the last 12 hours. I’m sad that Dee Gordon is gone, because he was immensely fun to watch and probably the nicest ballplayer I have ever spoken to, and thrilled in the manner in which he left. I feel for Dan Haren, another good guy who seemed so happy to be able to pitch back at home, and pleased that he’s no longer...
