A one run victory for Scottsdale on Friday evening, as Domonic Brown was the only Phillie prospect that saw action, going 1-4, with a run scored, and a double.

  1. I come back to the blog and i get lit up like a Christmas tree… maybe I should not post… just kidding, I am really not superstitious at all

  2. Schwim–
    Im willing to work with ya really….struggling between “journalistic integrity” and loyalty to you. I will wear certain clothes when you are pitching, seat myself and the family in certain areas of the house and not step on the lines in the parking lot on the way into the office…whatever you need!!!


  3. Gregg, thanks for all you do for this site. By the way, remember to cross your fingers, toes, arms, legs and eyes when Schwim is pitching.

  4. Gregg, thanks for the update.
    Schwimm, you have to throw strikes and get ahead of good hitters.
    Anyone not excited by what Mathieson is doing? Its also great that Dom is doing so well. If he keeps batting 3rd or 4th, that should tell us all that his star is on the rise with all the scouts, not just the Phillies’.

  5. Gregg – thanks for the update.

    Is anyone looking at the Mexican League? Valle continues to rake (OPS of 1.798) and even though it’s only six games he got some major love from KG over at BP. It was a few days ago and I can’t find the link but the word ‘breakout’ was mentioned. I know we’ve been high on him for a couple of years but he’s playing like a man among boys in a league full of men so he could open a ton of eyes this winter!

    Christmas trees are pretty… once a year.

    As they say, throw strikes, Babe Ruth is dead.

    Good luck and go get’em, we’d love to see you up in the Bigs soon.

  7. Michael Taylor is playing again, although he was DH’ing last night. 1 for 3 with BB and a K. That’s a good thing. I’m very excited about Mathieson. I saw last night’s box score and noticed Scott allowed 2 inherited runners to score but he can’t be faulted for it. With the bases loaded, he entered the game and induced a ground ball to the SS. He flipped to 2nd for the force and the 2nd baseman threw the ball away. 2 runs scored but Mathieson did his job. Nice work!

  8. Adding Mathieson and Bastardo to the bullpen would add some real talent. A little experience and they should be good to go for aboujt five years at least.


  9. Has anyone seen what Sebastian Valle has been doing in Mexico??? How about he homered in 4 straight games and his stats last i saw were:
    Avg. ab R H 2b 3b hr rbi bb k sb cs OBP Slug OPS
    .462 26 8 12 2 1 6 15 2 5 0 0 .483 1.308 1.790

    Wow that is really impressive and I am very excited to see him next year.

    Any surprises in the Phillies top 10 and is there hope for Zach Collier?

    Jim Callis (2:36 PM)

    I won’t give away much, but I’ll tell you that Domingo Santana is No. 10. You’ll have to check our website and magazine for anything more. As for Collier, I loved that pick at the time it was made but he had a pretty dreadful first full year. He’s still very young, so there’s hope.
