The Phillies lost to the Marlins in the most typical 2016 Phillies manner. The 2016 Phillies season has been one of ups and downs. On the up end was, of course, the first two months where they defied both preseason projections and their actual performance—at least in terms of run differential—to populate the upper half of the National League East standings.

Finding Professional At Bats

The Phillies are a bad offensive team. They have their moments, where the hits seem to fall in bunches, but as is often the case with bad offenses, reality brings them crashing back to earth. And when the offense goes into an especially brutal stretch of ineptitude, we often hear Pete Mackanin say he’s looking for more “professional at-bats”. It seems like a low bar to set...

Aaron Altherr on the way; J.P. Crawford not coming yet

The Phillies are shifting some young players around. But not all the ones you want. Andres Blanco had his finger crushed by an opposing cleat the other day, sending our unsung hero to the disabled list and stirring up rumors that this was the perfect moment to promote top prospect J.P.

Last week I provided a reasonably in depth analysis of the start of Zach Eflin‘s major league career. There’s the good — dude throws strikes — and the bad — dude never misses bats — but mostly there’s the unknown — dude’s just 22 and still learning. Overall, the analysis essentially called for tempering enthusiasm about Eflin, which felt a bit silly in retrospect...
