Re: Phillies' 2024 Spring Training SS GDT #7: 3/01/24 Marlins(1-3) @ Phillies(3-1-2) @ Tigers(3-3) - 1:05pm

"Kenny Acuña, brother of Ronald and Luisangel Acuña, has verbally agreed to join #Phillies and wouldn't be eligible to formally sign until international free agent class in January 2028." I actually hate this. I don't want the Phillies or any other team doing this. The kid is like 13 years...

Sanchez picks up where he left off. Incredibly efficient 2IP, only the one hit and a K with 19 pitches. Turner doubles deep to score Castro. 1-0. Winkelman is expressing mild concern that while Sanchez has added velocity, his pitches have also flattened out a bit. He's lost some of his vertical mov...

I would love to see Wilson make the team and get 200 AB this year, but Merrifield seems to have eliminated that path. And I don't want to see an injury that would facilitate it.

It's 2024 and we've got a Phillies spring game with Whit Merrifield, Kody Clemens, Weston Wilson and extremely-wealthy scrub Scotty Jetpax.

Re: Phillies' 2024 Spring Training - Feb 13th

I think Middleton is absolutely ready to make a splash on another huge free agent, but he's correctly being picky Shuffling the money offered to Yamamoto to Snell, Montgomery, Bellinger or Hader wouldn't have been wise. I can absolutely see Middleton being a serious contender in the Soto derby next ...

Re: Phillies' 2024 Spring Training - Feb 13th

FROM THE INQUIRER: ..."after meeting for three hours Dec. 14 with Yamamoto and his agents, and making a presentation that featured a video appearance by Bryce Harper, the Phillies offered more money than any team, according to multiple industry sources. That includes the Dodgers, who won the Ya...

Re: Phillies' 2024 Spring Training - Feb 13th

Phillies sign Whit Merrifield. It's 1 year, $7 million, though it's a essentially $8M, because there's a $1M buyout on the 2025 team option. I don't love it. He's 35 and his hitting skills have been in decline. He sounds versatile in theory, but in reality his only decent infield position is second ...
