Threshers Recap – 8/1/2019

I started going to the Carpenter Complex in 2012.  Dylan Cozens is a player I have followed since that first summer.  For the first time since that summer, Cozens will not be on one of our affiliated rosters.  Dylan’s not the first player I have followed who has been released, but he was among the longest tenured.  The only player remaining with the organization from his draft class, the Class of 2012, is Drew Anderson.

Threshers Recap – 7/30/2019

Just a few random things before the recaps.

Tuesday, Trenton completed a suspended game from May 30th.  They trailed 6-0 when the game was halted.  They completed and lost the seven inning game.  No big deal, right?  Unless you’re Reading.  Trenton and Reading finished the first half tied.  Because the Thunder played 2 less games, they had a better winning percentage.  But, this loss changes their first half record, and the finished a half game behind Reading.   Not too late to do the right thing Eastern League.

Threshers Recap – 7/29/2019

DJ Jefferson made his professional debut.  He threw a scoreless, 1-2-3 inning against the other Phillies GCL team.  Jefferson was a non-drafted free agent signed out of Desert Oasis High School this summer.  He exhibited a strong arm today.  The father of one of our other HS pitchers commented that the ball comes out of Jefferson’s hand so smooth.

Open Discussion: Week of July 29th

Sell … Sell … SELL!!!  Ah, sell whom?  Sell what?  I don’t know that we have anyone in whom a contender would be interested, whom we would also want to deal.  Maybe, the Phillies remain buyers, looking forward to the 2020 season.  Perhaps such additions add a pulse to this team and they catch the added benefit of contending into September.
