Rise and Phight: 1/24/2022

Photo by Bill McCay/ Still nothing, but today should be eventful As we continue enduring the lockout, there is still a dearth of news in the baseball landscape. The links are getting harder and harder to find, but we’ll continue trying to unearth some of the more interesting things we can find. On to the links. Phillies news: Scott Franzke is in possession of a one-year extension on his radio deal, but will have another new partner in 2022. Can’t remember if I posted this, but in case I didn’t, here’s a deep dive into two distinct fastballs Aaron Nola...

Rise and Phight: 1/20/2022

Photo by Casey Sykes/ Aaron Nola, NL Comeback Player of the Year, 2022 Baseball America put out their top 100 list yesterday. The Phillies had two prospects on that list - Mick Abel (51) and Bryson Stott (68). Nowhere to be found was Andrew Painter, but methinks had the list been expanded to 110, 125 or so, Painter would have appeared. It’s still obvious that the team’s player development system still has a long ways to go, but it is still encouraging that they have two names on the list. It’s cherry picking and desperate, sure, but there was a time not long ago...

Was Cornelius Randolph the right Pick? A look back at the 2015 MLB Draft

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ Swanson, Bregman, Tucker, but where’s Randolph? A look back at the 2015 MLB Draft. Coming off of back-to-back 73-89 seasons, the Phillies were fully embroiled in the rebuild. The 2015 MLB Draft would mark the second time in three years the Phillies would be making a top 10 selection. In 2014, they selected Aaron Nola at number seven overall. Just a year before that, they landed J.P. Crawford with the 16th pick. With the 10th pick in the 2015 MLB Draft, there was optimism the Phillies would be able to add another top prospect to a weak but...

Teams’ Free Agent Spending and Production since 2018

Teams’ Free Agent Spending and Production since 2018

The Phillies have spent big, and have also gotten good production, though not enough to get them to the postseason. Think back to the 2017-18 off-season: The Phillies had spent the past six years either trying to compete and failing, or trying to rebuild and failing and not even hoping to compete. Aaron Nola was showing flashes of stardom. Rhys Hoskins had just come up and gone on a tear, setting records for home runs at the start of a career. The Phillies’ farm system was ranked among the best in the sport. J.P. Crawford, Scott Kingery, and Sixto Sanchez were all top 50 or...
