The Phillies are 13-15 after going 3-4 last week. They split a 4-game series with the Cardinals then managed a 1-2 choke job against the Mets. They play real teams again this week and will likely have 20 losses this time next weekend. But, who cares. The Sixers are playoff bound. The NFL draft was just completed. Football is just around the corner. The NHL playoffs are close sans Flyers.
And, the minor league season starts Tuesday. But, the Phillies could care less. Here it is Sunday night and they haven’t released any of their precious affiliates’ rosters. They show this same disrespect to their fans who follow and care about their prospects every year. This just shows the lack of awareness Middleton’s people have regarding fans. MLB may have taken over the minor leagues, but they have no idea how to operate the minor leagues if there isn’t a shit ton of money involved.
Fourteen players were released at the end of spring training. Those players not assigned or released are likely to be attending extended Spring Training next week. Releases are in the transactions below.
I miss Carlos Santana at first base. Or any real first baseman.
Why can’t I see MLB’s standings on the MLB site or the Phillies’ site?
This is the Alt Site Roster.
My estimates of …
