Yoooooooooo, The Phillies

We’ve entered a time-warp. The Phillies are… fun(?) again. I mean, I don’t want to mush them into a 10-game tailspin, but last night – a strong (if brief) outing from Adam Morgan, a quick three-run comeback to match the Indians’ fifth, another strong bullpen outing, and a Ryan Howard walk-off – was the first time in a while I didn’t feel like I was watching a baseball...

Nola’s Curveball Was An Absolute Monster Yesterday

Yesterday marked the third time in Jonathan Papelbon‘s last 11 outings that his performance has resulted in the Phillies taking an ultimately insurmountable lead in dramatic fashion. It’s glorious and, as Papelbon’s former teammate freely admitted, it’s not only the fans who think so: Is the win even better that it came against Papelbon?"Absolutely," said Cameron Rupp. —...

What’s Going On With Odubel Herrera

This year, Odubel Herrera is an everyday player, and only two players in baseball have drawn more walks. On its own, maybe that doesn’t convey its real significance, so consider that, last year, Odubel Herrera was an everyday player, and 193 players in baseball drew more walks. Herrera today has more than twice as many walks drawn as Joey Votto. Votto last year out-walked Herrera...

Phillies’ outfield is out of this world…bad

The Phillies have a lot of issues. Their bullpen has been both really good and really bad. Their starting pitching started out great, but appears to be coming back to earth.  They have made the habit of making boneheaded base running mistakes. Their offense is putrid. Among all these issues, the most glaring one is possibly their outfield. It’s horrendous. To be fair, it never...
