  1. DeLaCruz has really had a very string unheralded season. Combine that with what Radcliff has done the last six weeks. They’re two surprises.
    Abel will struggle in AA initially, it’s no surprise. Painter is our clear #1. McGarry just has a hand blister, nothing serious. He might actually be passing Abel although Abel is younger.
    Rojas is finishing strong, a very good sign.

    1. I have to give Carlos De La Cruz some credit. When you’re not in the top 30, the odds are long that you’ll be able to make it to the bigs. He hasn’t been spectacular but he’s getting the job done at age 22, which is more than what others in the top 30 are doing. No idea what type of player he will become (AAAA, bench, starter) but it will be interesting to watch.

  2. Well our teams were consistent yesterday! Nice to see Hall hit a homer. DSL white on a roll.

  3. Andrew Baker to Reading. Interesting, they definitely think they have something here. Feel like this organization is great at finding these electric bullpen arms who “just have to work on their control” and they can be special.

    1. I wasn’t sure if they’d do it at this late point in the season but I’m not surprised given how good he’s been for awhile now. Relievers can move fast when they “figure it out.” Expect him to be in the mix for the big league ‘pen next year along with Schultz, Morales and possibly Miller.

      Along those same lines keep an eye on Brett Schulze.

      1. They should be in the mix, but there’s a maximum of 8 relievers to start the season. Dominguez, Alvarado, Brogdon, Coonrod are near locks. Bellatti and Nelson will have the inside track on 2 of them. That only leaves 2 spots for Morales, Appel, Miller, maybe Sanchez. And I’m not including any of the AA guys yet. And I’m not ruling out the Phillies re-signing say David Robertson.

        1. True but, as Dan said, good problem to have. Guys will get hurt or struggle, etc over the course of the season. It gives DD some extra bullets for a trade also.

          1. Unless you’re trading Dominguez (he’s already in arbitration), the rest of the relievers will only be getting you lotto tickets.

            1. I was thinking of the chance of including Baker, Schultz, Morales or Miller in a trade. Any of those guys could be interesting to other teams.

  4. Here is a rhetorical question: if you are Phillies management, how do you allow your team to WALK in three batters in the same inning?

    1. I stuck up for Robertson after the 10-9 Mets loss but I think this was his worst game as a manager and most Girardi esque.

      Left Ranger and Sanchez in way too long. Bellati was the right move but it didn’t work out. Just an all around horrible game. The offense shutting it down after going down was to be expected.
