  1. Pujols was dropped to #6 in the order the last 2 games. Not sure if it’s a trend or some other tactic. Deivi Grullon was moved into the 5 hole probably because he was on a hot streak but as always happens, he’s been shut down the last 2 games.

    Coppola has also been shutdown, by opposing pitchers, the last 3 games. He’s 0 for 11 in those games but he has 2 BBs and scored 3 runs. He can help even when he’s not hitting.

    Gamboa, the usually slick fielding SS, has 6 errors already this year. He had 9 in 50 games in his 1st season. He has 6 in 14 games this year. He’s not going anywhere on his bat. His .109/.192/.130 slash is pretty terrible. Last year he hit .189/.252.258. He’s 18 y/o and has some time to pick up his game. I know you’re all waiting for the but. I don’t really have one (no pun intended).

    1. Saw something earlier, that a BA scribe or KLaw were not impressed with Gamboa’s hit potential. Phillies did pay out a fairly large bonus number on him a few years ago. He still has time but needs to get the hitting going. And Happy 4th to you.

  2. Sometimes, I’m hopeless on Pujols and sometimes I’m like Pujols lastname may carry something good hidden for us in the near future. Today, I’m hoping pujols matures soon (2years), and delivered on his power promise.
    Pivetta and Arauz to the 7-day DL. What’s going on?

  3. Finding myself checking Cozen’s season stats on a daily basis. His stats over the last 10 games are ridiculous.

    1. whats really scary are his 3 walks yesterday. If he figures that part of game out all bets are off.

  4. How good is that Reading line-up when Alfaro and Hoskins can both go 0-fer, Quinn is on the DL, and they still score double-digit runs

  5. We talk about Cozens K rate,but he also has a 372 OBP. On base five of six times yesterday.

    Hoskins 0-4, but a productive one. Hitting the ball hard and forcing a couple of errors. Maybe he should have gotten half a hit on them. Also hit a ball deep but caught near the fence..

  6. A couple of relief pitchers we don’t talk much about but having good years:

    Hockenberry at Clearwater 1.47 ERA and 1.04 WHIP.

    Edgar Garcia at Lakewood, 1.21 ERA, 1.04 WHIP

    Anybody able to some insight on these guys?

  7. Kingery just keeps steadily improving his numbers. Up to a solid 781 OPS. Batting 471 over the past 10 games. Seems to have gotten on a steal-a-base-a-day plan recently. Now up to 22 SBs.


  8. Fast starts to their pro careers: 34th rounder outfielder Luke Maglich at Williamsport; 14th rounder Darick Hall. Let’s see if they can sustain their 950-plus OPS.

  9. For those who haven’t seen Juan Luis swing yet….you will want to check this out. Make sure volume is up! At 6’4″ 175 there is alot of projection here.

    1. If you click on twitter box (below the video) it takes you to twitter and plays better quality.

  10. The GCL Phils lost today but Jhailin Ortiz went 3 for 3 with a HR and a dbl plus a HBP. Suddenly he’s hitting .308 with an OBP around .425. Moniak was 0 – 3 with 2 Ks Randolph was 0 – 4 with 2 Ks and a BB. Jimmy Cordero had a 2 inning outing. He gave up a hit plus a BB with 3 Ks.
