  1. Erik Miller has gone off the rails in Triple A.
    He will need Rule 5 protection this Nov.
    Assume the Phillies will do that.
    Next season is a critical season for his development.

    1. Agreed. I thought he had really turned a corner unless this performance is injury related in some way.

      1. DMAR…he has had shoulder issues in the past.
        Like Spencer Howard in the past, maybe he cannot sustain velo due to an overall weakened shoulder muscular structure.
        Who knows…….next season he needs to come back strong.

  2. Pigs moved scott Kingery into leadoff spot, he has responded by going 7 for 24 ( .292 ) – 1 triple, 2 doubles, 3 BB – .370 OBP.

    1. The Kingery story is a modern tragedy. I’m exaggerating somewhat, but our hopes were so high on him at one time. Obviously, the Phillies felt the same way with that insane three-year contract before he had played a single game in the majors. I’m pleased that he has done well leading off, but I don’t envision a place for him on the major league roster next season. Very sad.

      1. 3 year contract? Where did you get that? How about 9? 6 years guaranteed (through 2023!)and three option years. The Phillies will pay him $8.25 million next year alone to be a bad AAA player. Please don’t feel too bad for him.

  3. Imagine how bad he must feel. Sure, he got his money but I’m sure he feels he let down a lot of people.

  4. I thought we had our Dustin Pedroia, a line drive, gap hitting, 2B, with excellent defense and speed. I don’t know what happened, outside of there being a big jump from AAA to the Majors. He wasn’t the same hitter up here. Varying stories on why he went to trying to hit HRs, and worrying about launch angle. Maybe none of the swing adjustments were really to blame, and he just wasn’t as good? We will never know.

    1. I always wondered about long Covid effects with Kingery. He got it very early and very badly. Afterwards, he was a strikeout machine. I wonder if it effected his eyesight or reflexes.

      1. Kingery had a very bad COVID experience. During the 2020 season, he went on the IL with back spasms in August. He suffered a concussion in May of 2021 and was diagnosed with a shoulder injury in July shortly after he was outrighted.

        I know his bout with COVID was bad. I don’t know about any effect on his vision. But, I’m reminded of a routine groundout to the second baseman by Kingery during 2020. The camera panned to Girardi in the dugout during the next at bat. Kingery was in the frame and he was what we used to call “Succking air”, in terrible distress trying to catch his breath. On a routine ground ball to second. It was then that I understood how bad the after effects of COVID could be.

        Now, I’ve also seen him in April and May at the Complex. He looked healthy. But, he still has the big swing that he developed between the 2016 and 2017 seasons.

        1. I’d hoped Kevin Long could have shortened that swing. I haven’t seen Kingery at AAA , but it’s such a waste of talent. I hope he makes it back to the big leagues, but it probably won’t be with the Phils.

  5. In 2018 and especially 2019 Kingery had two good years, not great. He played really well at SS and was used all over the field. Then, the next year everything went down hill.
