Re: Phillies' 2022 GDT #5: 04/12/22 Mets(3-2) @ Phillies(3-1) - 6:45pm

Lot of weird buzz right now. Best guess is the Corey Knebel is going on the COVID IL, which allows for a temporary 40-man spot. Phillies calling up journeyman minor-league lefty Jeff Singer, who they would then have to DFA when Knebel returns. There'd be no worry of losing Singer on a DFA, as oppos...

Re: 2022 MLB Spring Training & resumption of free agency

The Phillies have played a lot of guys in CF so far and none of them have been that impressive, but not one of them is that bad that they had to bring Odumbell back. All the Phils really need there is a good fielder. It just doesn't work that way. The Braves had the best defensive CF prospect in th...

Those numbers are right off Spotrac which tracks all NFL Salaries

Re: 2022 Eagles Offseason Discussion

Um. What the entire fuck? What's the dead money on that? Does that provide any real cap savings? [The Philadelphia Eagles have released six-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Fletcher Cox after 10 seasons, sources told NFL Network's Mike Garafolo. Cox, who was designated as a post-June 1 release, was s...

Re: Chase Utley discussion

Sorry but I'd say Chase. Higher WAR, more power-HRs, RBIs, OBP, SLG, OPS, even higher BA. He was "The Man". Of the significant offensive categories Jimmy did better in two of them, hits and runs. Otherwise Utley has the better stats. Of course in the field, Jimmy was superior at a tough p...

Re: Chase Utley discussion

I kinda think he gets in? He seems like he's someone who can stick on the ballot for a long time and get in on his 10th try as some voting sentiments have changed. That's entirely possible if He can get a few writers behind his case and slowly build momentum and votes over the 10 year period. But t...

Re: Chase Utley discussion

I don't think he will be voted in the BBWAA or come close, too short of a prime in their eyes Problem with the HOF is that they have lowered their standards. Bill Mazeroski is in the HOF, so based on that Utley should be in To me a HoFer should be someone who was elite for 5+ years as opposed to ju...

Chase Utley discussion

There are 23 second basemen in the Hall Of Fame. Chase Utley played 16 seasons. 5 of the top 10 HOF second basemen played 20 + seasons, Utley is only 26th all time in games played at second base. He has a better career WAR than 13 of the HOF 2B, and a better 7 year Peak WAR than 16 of them. He has t...
