8 thoughts on “Threshers Recap – 8/23/2019

  1. Phillies top to bottom give new meaning to “Black Friday”. Bohm pretty much the only bright spot.

  2. Phillies, 11 runs on 11 hits. Marlins, 19 runs on 19 hits. I went to the minor league scores for some solace last night and my depression only worsened.

  3. I understand the Organization decision to be careful with Spencer Howard. A lot riding on him. Pitching, pitching and more pitching please.

  4. Manuel Silva’s had a good season. Nothing remarkable but he’s kept the walks in check and recovered from a very rough May.

    Curtis Mead is another guy having a good year a bit under the radar. His 3 home runs this year have all come in his last six games. So far so good for the Phils’ group of Aussies.

  5. So your Drafted out of H.S, prior MGMT. Young, strong, high potential because of height, weight (Projection of body type). Pay your dues, put in the innings and log good numbers against professional hitters but the NEW Flavor gets New Favor. Part of baseball but signal sending is ok I’ll ask for trade because of no loyalty for Hard working committed players. That’s the world we live in.
    New Flavor should need to show experience against equal or tougher talent not be valued against lower or season ending/long season August Dog Days.
    MLB talent does not make routine errors in physical or mental mistakes along with judgment calls of error/hits that are made in lower level competition. Routine swinging bunt that catcher tosses into right field

    Stay the course do the Time

  6. Like this and many websites say STATS or stats. Value is ?
    Did the player show growth! Did the player help his team! Only time reflects a Players ability
    Minors are a Marathon, NOT a Sprint

  7. So disappointed when ever I see the numbers put forth by our “top prospects.” Other than Howard, who should I get really excited about? I’d like to say Bohm, but I’d expect better numbers from a future star.
