    1. ok i understad what you are trying to do, but its rather annoying since your post is so long and i have to scroll down to read the other comments or post my own…not trying to be trolling here

      1. Relax Jerry. Are you surfing the web on a Commodore 64 w/ dialup? Is scrolling down aggravating your Carpal Tunnel? PP is cool with gkketch’s daily breakdown, so cheer up, it is hittin’ season after all.

      2. I didn’t want to dignify this with a response but I want Ketch to know that he does a tremendous service to this site. It’s great to see a short (yes it’s very short) synopsis of our prospects each day. Ketch has limited it to only those players that actually played that day so it has become even better. Keep it up Ketch, nearly all of us love it.

        1. It really is amazing and I want to take a moment to thank each person who contributes posts to this site and to PP for all of his comprehensive and insightful work. Thank you again.

            1. Thanks. I’m not trying to be a hero, just a contributor to the community that I enjoy. If there’s ever a consensus feeling that I should stop, all one of the mods has to do is let me know and I’ll quit. Not trying to be a problem.

            2. Consensus is you should keep doing it, ketch. I’m a big fan. I like how you customize it each day.

  2. Interesting that Collier was removed at the end of the first game and did not play the second. If I’m not mistaken, the first part of the first game was played yesterday. Today they played about three innings. Collier was removed in today’s portion of the first game. This seems ominous. Collier has a nice BB/K ratio, and i think there is power coming. The number of doubles he has hit indicates this. It would be shame if he has another serious injury.

    1. I was wondering the same thing regarding Collier. Hopefully it was just a day off or if it is an injury, it’s something minor and he’s back soon.

  3. I see Lendy Castillo is now at Lakewood. I’m glad to see that. 8 Ks in 7 IP, I like that a lot too. He can start or relieve. He might be the next guy to take over a rotation spot when the 1st half starters have maxed out their innings. Bonilla seems to be taking Hollands spot in the rotation as Mario rotates to relief.

  4. Any word on Tyson Gillies? Is his hammy acting up again?
    He has not played since the weekend…..

  5. Another fine outing by Pettis, but if you read between the lines, he allowed 3 of 3 inherited runners to score. That is not going to get it done at the major league level. That’s part of the reason I believe Aumont is not being promoted while DeFratus is…because Aumont has a penchant for committing errors of his own then giving up runs but those runs still show up as unearned, so the numbers don’t tell the full story.

      1. The bullpen depth they’ve developed is really such a fantastic asset. I wouldn’t be surprised if next season it’s Madson, Contreras, and otherwise all homegrown products (Stutes, Bastardo, DeFratus, Aumont, Schwim–maybe even Carpenter in the long man role). Which is a great way to economize and go out and get the big club’s most glaring need, a big right-handed masher in LF.

        1. Quick clarification: don’t think the Phillies will count on all those young guys to fill all the roles, I’m sure they’ll bring in some veterans to compete for bullpen jobs in Spring Training, but I don’t see them going out and spending a lot on them knowing they’ve got all this talent coming up through the system.

        2. I’d love to see that bullpen. The only concern is that bullpen would be a very young, and Charlie Manuel doesn’t seem to like youth movements. Of course, in 2012 Bastardo will be in his fourth major league season (hardly “young”) and Stutes seems to have earned a solid setup role as a rookie. It wouldn’t be unrealistic to see JdF and/or Schwimer be on the team before September 1st

        3. I would expect the team to bring in one additional veteran lefty (if they can find one on the cheap). Otherwise, I think they will be comfortable with Madson, Contreras,Stutes, and Bastardo being the core of the pen and letting the young guys compete for the rest of the spots.

        4. We have a strong group of young relievers. I don’t think what you are sugggesting would be a bad thing necessarily. But IMO it won’t happen to that extent. At a mininimum, they will sign a LOOGY type. Maybe even another veteran reliever. That still means room for Stutes, Bastardo, and at least one more young guy (two if Madson doesn’t re-sign). Unless Kendrick is kept as a long man.

          Of course, one advantage of not going 100% (or even 71%) with young homegrown guys is organizational depth – there will be injuries, there always are, and I’d rather then go with a couple more vets so guys like Aumont, Carpenter and Schwim will be available as call ups when the inevitable injuries occur.

          What I find annoying – and I’m not saying you are doing this or will do this – but we can be fairly certain that if they do decide to go with their normal mix of veterans and home grown guys, there will be people around here screaming about the supposed idiocy of the front office. Sigh.

          1. The screaming will be due to a lack of understanding of the organizational depth. The same people who want to trade Kyle Kendrick today think that nobody of the remaining 5 starting pitchers could possibly get hurt this year. Or, I guess they think that somebody in AAA is capable of pitching as well as Kendrick right now.

  6. Hadn’t noticed, but Hollands is pitching out of the pen now. Not a good sign to be moved to the pen as 22/23 year old in Low A. But the reports after he was drafted always highlighted his “funky” delivery, which is always good for a LOOGY.

    1. Believe that the game in question was an extra inning game, and Hollands would have started the next game, so maybe they went with Hollands rather than the relievers they had left for some reason, and they thought the game might continue for a while.

  7. Domingo has come alive! After a 632 OPS in April, he was at 978 in May and 863 over his last ten games. This is very encouraging for an 18-year-old in A-. In fact, his May production reminds me of a certain other 18-year-old in A- we had last year…not quite the same, but at least reminiscient.

    1. I’ve been happy to see his recent progress; the only reason I have been a little concerned is his horrible BB/K ratio. But 4BB in 2 games is nice, and of course at lower levels has demonstrated soe plate discipline. If he keeps it up, he could be a top 5 prospect after this year.

      It’s funny, early in the season the perception was that our top prospects were having somewhat disappointing (and/or injury plagued) seasons. But at this point I’d say our top 30 looks better than it did at the start of the season, even with a couple prospects graduating to the major leagues.

  8. Looking at WPT’s roster, I’m pretty interested to see how Arias does. He’s had two strong years in the DSL in a row with solid strikeout rates and off-the-charts walk and HR rates. He also had a very high groundball rate last year. There’s a big difference between the DSL and the NYPL, but there seems like there is some potential there. He’s 21, but he’s also the third-youngest P on the active roster and the youngest active starter (unless they move him to the bullpen).

    There are definitely some interesting arms in WPT; Garner, Walter, Arias, Wright, Nesseth, Morgado, Martinez and Gomez. I’m sure there are some more on there that I should watch, but that seems like a lot already. Lots of guys that have a wide range of potential outcomes. Let’s hope one or two of them have positive outcomes this season.

  9. I had read about very positive sentiments on Ken Walter sometime around last year’s draft. While Williamsport has started – anyone else have confirmation of this ??? He appears to have been paid overslot $$ due to his potential – another late Phils add that could really pay off ?

    1. Kevin Walter is on Williamsport’s DL, they start Friday. Ken Walters was an OF back in the ’60’s I think.

  10. Also love comments about Phils 2012 pen. I think an experienced closer is definitely in the mix and hopefully Madson will be the one – but the Boras affiliation is scary because he will not permit home team discounts. I also would not be surprised to see Lidge stay on with much reduced salary if Madson walks – he then could be the experienced quasi-closer coupled with one of the younger arms – maybe Bastardo on a commitee approach.

    1. They have set themselves up perfectly. They will have Madson, one extra year of Contreras and a bunch of young guys. They are almost there now. Lidge, Romero, and Baez are largely irrelevant. Good transition plan by the Phils!

  11. Gillies not in the lineup again tonight. I fear the worst. I hope I am just overreacting.

  12. Galvis 3 more hits and another HR. Most HR by a SS/2B/3B in the organization this year. Okay, tied with Rivero who also hit one tonight.
