Re: The State of Philaphans (Please Read)

While I don't come on here nearly as much as I did 10-15 years ago, I do appreciate what Ron's done to keep this site alive. My one thing of note is that in today's world, transparency is everything. Being transparent allows trust from your users, employees or whomever else. I've been looking up cos...

Triple Crown in 2022?

Not mentioned much, but there's a serious shot Paul Goldschmidt gets a triple crown this year. He's either 1st or 2nd in the categories that matter. This is something that's only been reached once since the 1960s - it's pretty big. I'd like to see him reach it - especially since many people thought ...

Re: 8/2 Trade Deadline Discussion

I'd rank the Phils' needs as follows: 1. starting pitching 2. center field 3. bullpen Offensively, the Phils need more from some guys already on the roster (Castellanos, Didi, JT to name three), and of course to have Harper and Segura return and perform to their level. If they get that, they'll be ...

Re: Phillies' 2022 GDT #98: 07/27/22 Braves(59-40) @ Phillies(50-47) - 12:35pm

Like what I'm seeing out of Bohm lately - something like 19 hits in his last 12 games. I'd rather see him in the 2-hole instead of wasting him in the 7th slot behind automatic-out Stott. Needed win today and the Phils did a great job to pick up this one. Don't do something stupid and lose a series i...

What do you guys think of Ian Happ as a CF for the next year and a half? I cannot see a rebuilding Cubs team paying him $10M next season as he'll be in his 3rd arbitration year. Defensively, he's not as good as Odubel was early in Odubel's career. But he's better than Odubel is now. He's also a muc...

Never liked Gibson from jump last year. He is a 5th starter - and is adequate for a 5th starter Agreed. Except for that anomaly where he pitched in the 2's somehow for Texas before coming here, he was a 4.5+ ERA pitcher his entire career. He's a back of the rotation guy who once in a while has his ...

Re: Phillies' 2022 GDT #76: 06/29/22 Braves(43-32) @ Phillies(39-36) - 7:05pm

They're going to need to replace Bryce's offense (at least some of it) somehow. Not seeing a whole lot of matches via trade. There are some okay players who may be available within the next few weeks, but there's also going to be a lot of competition in acquiring them. Even with Bryce they weren't ...

They need to get rid of some of these DHs. Defensively, they're really bad. Most things don't come up as errors simply because they cannot get to balls, but the give up too many outs to their opponents.

Nice shot by Rhys.
