Herrera shines in otherwise dull Phillies season

Storyline: The 2016 Phillies

A crystal ball is not necessary to envision the next two years of the Philadelphia Phillies and the players in the lineup with Maikel Franco. Realistically, the franchise has stable rosters on the parent club, the Triple-A Lehigh Valley IronPigs and the Double-A Reading Fightin Phils. In other words, the next step is up to the athletes.

The Phillies Are on Fire for Some Reason

When the Padres decided to sell nothing at all at the trade deadline, one of the public explanations was that the team didn’t want to give up on the playoffs. And one of the explanations for that line of thinking was that the schedule looked pretty soft, so the Padres would have a chance to rack up some much-needed wins against lesser competition. At the time, it seemed more like...

WATCH: Alex Wood lost grip mid-pitch, called for balk

Alex Wood’s first start with the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday night was going pretty well. Until the seventh inning, that is, when he forgot how to throw a baseball. The recently-acquired left-hander found himself in a bit of a jam with two runners on and a full count to Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Odubel Herrera. Here was his payoff pitch:             This...

Phillies showing signs of future success

While the Philadelphia Phillies are still in the drivers seat for the worst record in baseball this season, they have been playing as well as anyone since the All-Star Break.

Herrera’s aggressiveness paying off for Phillies

Odubel Herrera is the kind of center fielder who is probably going to make a bunch of errors. But that's what makes him so exciting. It's that style of play that led Mackanin, after the Phillies' 6-2 loss to the Braves, to describe Herrera, who never p...

Odubel Herrera may have staying power for Phillies

Ok, so I will admit it. I’ve been watching way too much Philadelphia Phillies baseball the past two weeks. Philadelphia is not a good baseball team, and even with a 12-2 surge to start the second half of the season, they are still 23 games below the .500 mark. Despite being just a smidge better than unwatchable for the entire first half, (admit it, Jeff Francoeur pitching two innings...

The Saturday Shuffle

*Ben Revere out, more pitching "prospects" in. I like Revere and wish him well in Toronto. Alberto Tirado and Jimmy Cordero are the two minor league pitchers that came to Philly in the trade, both of them relievers.  Tirado was a Top 100 prospect prior to 2014, but suffered through a poor season.  He's 20 years old and was in Single-A+. Over 4 seasons he has a 3.36 ERA/1.40 WHIP...
