  1. James: with the amount of fine work you do for this site I can’t see how you have time for anything else. Super Fan!! Entertaining and informative and well written. A gift to us all.

  2. Wait Venditte 7 0 2.23 era wow and he’s in AAA . Kingery just keeps going and going as well Pullin ,and Now Tromp. Liebrandt has now pick off 12 base runners off 1 St. Wow Nick Williams walked again.

  3. Yesterday I mentioned on here that I was going to the Cape and hoped to see a Cape League game. My chores, helping my parents out, took until 8pm. We went to dinner after and couldn’t see any of the Bourne/Orleans game. I guess I missed a very good pitching performance by Orleans, by way of Georgia, pitcher Joey Murray. Crap, I love good pitchers and well pitched games. Sorry guys.

  4. Went to Baseball Town last night, as mentioned by Steven everybody hit. Tromp had a really good game with a dinger and (2) doubles. Pullin with a HR that was really smoked. Would have had another single if for not some questionable base running. He hit a flair high down the left field line and they were shading him to right. The base runner thought it would be caught and returned to far to second base resulting in a force out at 3rd. Kingery with a bunt single, single, steal and was also caught stealing. Tocci 2 infield hits. Walding a double on his last at bat to left field. A lot of others with 2 hits not mentioned.

    Defense was good with several double plays executed at critical times. Kingery very fun to watch. Reminds me of a young Chase.

    Liebrandt very workmanlike for 6 innings. Windle adequate to the task. Rivero was hit pretty hard, gave up a dinger, but endured for his inning.

    If there is any slot money left over from the draft we should consider *The Hot Dog Vendor” he put one on the roof behind backstop from the playing field. They didn’t have the gun on, so I couldn’t give you what he tops out at on the fast dog, I can say the cutter dog has a lot of tail on it!

    1. It’s a possibility, but not finalized. He’s going to Clearwater and he’s going to get evaluated first before the decision will be made.

    2. As a point of refernce….Mets sent Conforto to the NYPL to start and the Sox sent Benintendi to the NYPL and also to the SALLY…most of the games however were in the NYPL.

      1. For me its less about where they send him to start and more about where they send him to finish but if I’m being honest I’d like to see him in LKW or CLW to start. I mean Shiznit a college player taken 8 overall should hold is own in A ball.

    1. I wish someone – ANYONE – could explain to me the deliberation over promoting Kingery to AAA. Please!

      Is it an administrative matter? a logistical issue? a money thing? WHAT?

        1. Yes, thinking they want to give he the change to play in the All-star game. A couple of weeks don’t really matter

      1. 8mark….July 12th is the all -star game….20 more regular season games until then. No sense rushing him.

      2. seems Phillies are in no rush to bring valued minor league players close to current Phillies team. Expect them to drag their feet on several players.

    1. Good to see. Well deserved. A good showing puts him in Philly before the end of this year. Congrats to him!

      1. Agreed! Tromp deserves an extended look at AAA as well.

        My question is – who moves to AA, then from LKWD to CLW. I am thinking they either promote Moniak (I know, unpopular comment) OR put Haseley in CLW.

        1. At some point Haseley and Moniak have to be on the same team. I don’t think you can put either one of them at A+ and rely on them to make Reading at the start of next year.

          I’m guessing they’ll put Haseley at Lakewood now, and swap them in and out of CF.

          1. their tragectory shouldnt be close. Haseley should be in Majors in about 2 years with Moniak closer to 3.

  5. It might have been mentioned elsewhere but I was disappointed to see Gowdy in GCL. Anyone know why there instead of in Williamsport?t

  6. I get the feeling and could be wrong. That they will move cesar at trade deadline and promote kingery from double a straight to big club. Something they dont usually do.

    1. rocco…..that could happen…but Klentak already said he was moving him to LHV ‘soon’ and he said that beginning of last week to Jim Salisbury.

        1. Hah.
          In the next 3/4 weeks we will see if his applications to theoretical baseball hold water.,,,,hopefully he does not hold onto Kendrick and Neshek so long that they get injured…..and get what you can for Hellickson.
          BTW….ViVe was suppose to throw a bullpen today to determine his status in his recovery from the flexor strain in his right elbow……its been four weeks now and its time to see where he is at.

        2. rocco…..and Kingery should get the move to LHV …I assumed at the July 10th/12th EL all-star break.

  7. Please correct me if I am wrong, and I may very well be. But, I believe that a College player from a big time program should have the skill set to compete at a High A level. Haseley has just completed a full College season, so why wouldn’t he be able to fit in Clearwater with the Threshers? Why would he go to Williamsport? Is it just the Phils who take the really slow approach?

    1. matt13…..Mets and Sox did it with Conforto and Benintendi respectively(NYPL)…all three drafted between five and ten , same position or there abouts, OFers…all three profile as similar hit tools while in college.
      The difference however may lay in next April where he starts. Mets/Sox really moved them thru their system and they were in the majors pretty fast. Though all three played in major college conferences…PAC12/SEC and Haseley in the ACC….so Haseley’s hit toll should translate in A ball..low and hi.

    2. Virginia played its last game June 5. While I am sure Haseley has been practicing since then, it could be that the Phillies might be looking at avoiding presenting too steep a challenge for a guy who hasn’t played in a game that matters for more than 2 weeks.

  8. Thanks Romus, so the test is next April and where he gets slotted. Maybe at Lakewood, and Moniak at Clearwater. I would think that they want to give them both a shot to play in CF?

    1. Regarding Moniak or Haseley in cf, I would think they’d eventually place the guy with more power in a corner position. If they’re even, I think Haseley has the arm (having been a pitcher) to play RF. But that’s me.

      1. But it’s reasonable to think Haseley should be able to start his pro career a level higher than Mickey Mo who’s 2 yrs younger.

        1. 8mark…Sox started Benintendi at NYPL just before 4th of July….assume he was briefly at Ft Myers, their training complex in Florida, between when he signed and Lowell. Then he stayed there for 6 weeks and was promoted tp the SALLY around mid-August. The he satrted , right after ST in Hi-A, then six weeks later went to AA in the EL(mid-May), then skipped AAA at PAwtucket and went straight to Fenway at the first week August.
          Not sure he unpacked his bags until August.
          Though moved him very fast.
          His total slash for 400PAs minor league time was 280/.346/794
          Not sure I see the Phillies doing that with Haseley…even if he slashes that good or better.
