Friday Quickies

The rebuild and youth movement is almost in full effect.  Would like to see Jerome Williams released and give another minor leaguer a chance - Alec Asher, Jesse Biddle or Severino Gonzalez (again).  It's not that they're deserving of it due to minor league success, but we know Jerome ain't the answer.
Jerad Eickhoff makes his MLB debut tonight.  He was part of the package deal for Hamels.  Go get 'em kid!

Dalier Hinojosa and Cesar Jimenez should be pissed at the Phillies.  Each performed exceptionally well in the Phillies bullpen, albeit a small sample size, but were demoted to Triple-A nonetheless.  All the while Justin DeFratus holds down a permanent gig.  Justice?  I think not.

Darnell Sweeney went straight from Dodgers system to Phillies 25-man roster after being dealt for Utley.  He does a bit of everything, has quality speed, some extra base pop, and is versatile (2B, CF, SS & 3B).  Hopefully he get some starts to finish out the season.

The Phillies need to figure out what to do with Cody Asche.  He's been one of the worst defensive players in MLB this season with a -1.5 dWAR.  However, he's been hitting quite nicely in the 2nd half of the season (.280/.817).  With Aaron Altherr supplanting him in LF, is it time to try 1st base?

Ryan Howard and Carlos Ruiz are the only remaining players from the 2008 WFC.

Every minor league team in the Phillies system based in the USA has a winning record, minus the IronPigs.  Breeding a winning environment from the get-go is important.

September should consist of a six man rotation.

Cesar Jimenez claimed by the Brewers. Good luck and prove Amaro to be a dumbass or letting you get away.

Utley in Dodger blue is a tough site to take in

Great debut from Eickhoff. Mackanin with another stupid early hook. He only had 75 pitches.
