Been a long time coming

From 2008 through 2012, Philadelphia invested first-round draft picks or compensatory choices in Joe Savery, Zach Collier, Anthony Hewitt, Jesse Biddle, Larry Greene, Mitch Gueller and Shane Watson.

That's f'n terrible!

GM-Carson said...

Morgan and Asher have not been good. Hoping they're building blocks, but the have a ton to prove.

GM-Carson said...

I remember back in the day when I enjoyed reading what Todd Zolecki wrote, before he worked for the Phillies. He's nothing but a lap dog now, a hand puppet. He actually wrote Howard broke out of his 0-35 hitless streak with a double. That's hit, 1 f'n magical hit cures games of hitlessness. Are you f'n kidding me? Don't write that bullshit man. You're better than that.

Bob D said...

One year left with Howard. If no changes then Howard and Ruf will platoon next year with Brock Stassi advancing to AAA after a great year in Reading. Or Howard gets his release by new GM and brings in a new first baseman. This is one area the team should look outside the organization to improve.

Bob D said...

Maybe Zolecki knew something? Howard pinch hits an RBI double in next at bat go figure.

Eickhoff with a good start today

Andrew said...

Eickoff and Nola have the potential to be a formidable 1-2. Other minor league pitchers and a free agent could round out a solid 2016 rotation

GM-Carson said...

Morgan is a backend of the rotation guy. As a #5 he's alright. Need Asher to progress quickly.

Bob D said...

Thompson in Reading is likely to be better than Eickoff and his ETA should be next year sometime. But I would not be surprised to see him come up and start one game this year as an audition. I think he is a can't miss prospect.
The others: Morgan, Buchanan, Pettibone, Gonzalez, MAGonzalez, etc are a crapshoot at this point.
