Is This The End For Former Phillies Infielder Placido Polanco?

A week ago, Placido Polanco made Jayson Stark's "All-Unemployed" team at third base. From the start, Polanco was one of my favorite Phillies. Maybe it was that I was happy the Scott Rolen ordeal was over with, but I was at Veterans Stadium for his first game wearing a number...

Alvarez, Marlins shutout Pirates 2-0

Placido Polanco's pinch-hit bases-loaded RBI infield single was ugly but lucky for him and the Marlins style doesn't factor on the scoreboard. The end-of-the-bat 50-foot ground-ball to third cracked a scoreless deadlock and lifted the Marlins to a 2-0 win over Pittsburgh Friday night at Marlins Park. The Marlins (39-62) were sparked by a second-straight stellar start from...

Giancarlo Stanton is struggling and Giancarlo Stanton’s teammates are terrible. These two things are true. These two might be related. It would make sense that these things are related, because the drop-off from Giancarlo Stanton to the guys hitting behind his is absurdly larger. Stanton has played in 16 games this season, and has hit third in all 16 of those games. The cleanup...
