Who's Next in the Booth?
Both Jamie "Grand Pappy" Moyer and Matt "Moonshot" Stairs have interviewed for the job of replacing Sarge/Wheels in the Phils tv booth. Either would be entertaining. They each played for a lot of organizations, which would give them insight into more than just the Phillies. Both were important parts of the Phillies 2008 WFC squad. Moyer seems cerebral and Stairs is Canadian. Sign 'em both!
Another Ace Anyone?
AJ Burnett has reneged on his word and decided it wasn't Pittsburgh or retirement. Instead he's coming back for at least one more season and will consider East Coast teams. The Orioles and Phillies fit that mold, and they each could use Burnett's services. I'd love to see Amaro throw a 1 year $15M deal his way with an option year. It would certainly help the rotation that has nothing good aside from Hamels and Lee. Bonus- he'd become a Phucco.
Phillies minor leaguer Christopher O'Hare has been suspended 50 games to begin the 2014 season. He's currently on Lakewood BlueClaws roster, so that is where he will remain on the inactive list until his punishment is over. The lefty was a 23rd round pick in 2013 and pitched in just 5 games.
