    Re: Papelbon to Nats for RHP Nick Pivetta

    Nola to the 10-day DL, so maybe Pivetta gets the call for Wednesday's game. Could also be Morgan, though I doubt he's stretched out enough to start a game right now. Jake Thompson perhaps, but he's...

    Re: Papelbon to Nats for RHP Nick Pivetta

    Idiot.

    This trade was good by most accounts when it happened (except those quoted here), turned tremendous when Papelbon proved to be such a disaster in the Washington clubhouse…and dugout…and now...

    2017 Closer; Goose Eggs > Saves

    This might be a dead board, but I haven't moved on to posting anywhere else so this is as good a place as any to post this link. It's also a relevant topic for the 2017 Phils, since their closer...

    Re: Active Ex-Phillies Thread

    If Jimmy believes he's at the end of his career, I wouldn't mind the Phillies signing him for the rest of the year. I don't want them playing him except for a few PH appearances and a spot home start...

    Ill expelled from the board? Just noticed that. Does that mean he belongs in this thread now? In other news, Giles has been blazing for HOU and it sounds as though he's been given the closer's role....
  6. Re: Pre-Deadline Road Trip: @ PIT (7/22-7/24), @ MIA (7/25-7/27), @ ATL (7/28-7/31)

    In a rainout or delay this week, I forget which it was, they decided to have him throw a simulated game instead of simply pushing him back a day. This was to keep him on Hellickson's schedule, says...
  7. Re: Phillies 2016 Non-Waiver Deadline Rumors and Activity

    I'm not a local so I never listen to Cataldi and generally dislike sports radio anyway (I do enjoy LeBatard if I run around during lunch), but I'm not sure why that statement particularly is so...
  8. Re: Phillies 2016 Non-Waiver Deadline Rumors and Activity

    No reason to trade Velasquez unless it's a huge haul. Unless they think his arm is about to fall off, which I'd believe.
  9. Re: Phillies 2016 Non-Waiver Deadline Rumors and Activity

    Stark says Hellickson will be some team's plan B because the Phillies are asking a lot. Hellickson is a Boras guy, so the Phils supposedly feel safe making a qualifying offer that Hellickson will...

    Re: The Outfield

    I don't think there's any decision to be made about playing time. If Altherr is healthy and Williams is called up, they need to be playing every day alongside Odubel. I'm fine with working Altherr in...
  11. Re: Phillies 2016 Non-Waiver Deadline Rumors and Activity

    And there it is, a Ryan Howard rumor! Some place called Today's Knuckleball cites "an AL scout" as saying Howard could change a game with a pinch hit homer. Maybe, just maybe...
  12. Re: Rocky Mountain Getaway - Phillies (40-46) @ Rockies (38-46)

    Me too, but perhaps they are going to give Morgan a shot at a loogy role or the long man. It just won't happen between now and the break after he threw 84 pitches last night.
  13. Re: Rocky Mountain Getaway - Phillies (40-46) @ Rockies (38-46)

    No need for an extra starter between now and Sunday, and now Morgan can keep pitching in AAA during the break. As long as Nola is truly healthy and just needed to skip this one start, he should be...
  14. Re: Road Trip! @ Minny (6/21-6/23), SF (6/24-6/26), Ari (6/27-6/29)

    Random note, but Velasquez and Morgan are both starting today. That doesn't necessarily mean anything, but could indicate that's who Velasquez will replace when healthy.

    Re: Howard

    Pirating this from elsewhere, but Howard's 2016 will be historic if it continues to follow the current slash line. ISO (isolated slugging %) is SLG minus AVG. Only 2 players have had an ISO >.200...

    Hollands activated and sent to AAA; Asche activated and Lough DFA'd. Herrera might have 2 new starting OF partners tonight in Asche and Paredes.

    Sticky: Re: Phillies Minor League Thread PSP

    Stolen bases during May: Philadelphia Phillies = 11 (21 for the season); Roman Quinn in Reading = 15 (24 for the season). Let's get him up to LV as well.

    Re: Natinals @ Phillies 5/30 - 6/01

    That's a punt lineup, for sure. I expect Paredes starts Thurs. They reportedly tried to claim him a week or two ago (last time he was waived) but an AL team stepped in front of them.

    Re: Natinals @ Phillies 5/30 - 6/01

    But the truly important question is did you get an el torito t-shirt? Not sure if they were a mass giveaway or if it was some special thing, but someone with the Phillies was giving them away. As for...

    The potential to lose comes only in the form of low-pressure playing time for Joseph or someone else, so whatever that means or doesn't mean to each of us. The likelihood of Howard gaining meaningful...

    I'm afraid any scout is going to see glaring holes in his offensive game and teams simply aren't going to want him at any price.

    HAHAHA! Just practice up on your British accent, stick your nose up in the air and use words like footie, match, pitch & kits and you'll be fine. ;)
