Here’s an open discussion thread so the minor league posts don’t get cluttered with Phillies’ talk and other topics.
The First Year Player Draft starts Monday night. There will be separate threads for that.
Some random stuff to light a fire –
- Freddy Galvis got a hit today to end an 0-31 drought.
- Maikel Franco’s 6 HR are enough to be second on the team.
- Chase Utley is back under .200.
- Papelbon is still earning his salary.
- With Seve Gonzalez back to LHV, who’s #5?
- Or, with an off day on the 11th, they just don’t need him until the 16th?
- And since the draft is tomorrow, there’s this. The Phillies are one of 3 teams with sub-.400 winning percentages – Oakland .390; Philadelphia .379; and Milwaukee .351
