Phillies roster moves: J.P. Crawford, Jake Thompson

Phillies roster moves: J.P. Crawford, Jake Thompson

J.P. Crawford is coming back to Philadelphia. In the wake of the trade for first baseman Justin Bour, the Phillies made a series of roster moves today. First, Jake Thompson was designated for assignment, taking him off the team’s 40-man roster. All 29 teams will now have an opportunity to make a waiver claim on Thompson and place him on their 40-man rosters. If no one does, he returns to the Phillies and can be optioned to the minors once again. Thompson was a former top-100 prospect in baseball and was a major component of the Cole Hamels deal back in 2015 that also netted the Phillies...

Game Thread 8/3: Marlins at Phillies

Game Thread 8/3: Marlins at Phillies

It’s game two of Phillies-Fish as we head for the weekend. The last time Rhys Hoskins faced Miami starter Trevor Richards, he went 3-for-4 with a double. Odubel Herrera was similarly damaging. Cesar Hernandez and Jorge Alfaro hit doubles, too. Of course, the Marlins won that game 6-3 even though Richards only went four innings—the Phillies couldn’t get their bats to work against any of the Marlins relievers. And then there’s the other downside: Richards has really been working on that change-up. Among baseball insiders I've spoken with today, Trevor Richards' outing last night is...

How much of a defensive upgrade is Wilson Ramos?

How much of a defensive upgrade is Wilson Ramos?

Not so much over Jorge Alfaro, but over Andrew Knapp? It’s significant Let’s get this part out of the way: with the Phillies’ acquisition of Wilson Ramos, their catching just got much better on offense. There is no statistic that would agree Jorge Alfaro or Andrew Knapp is better with the bat right now than Ramos, so that is a point that cannot be argued. What can be argued is that Ramos is a clear upgrade over Alfaro and Knapp behind the plate. That was the reaction many had to the trade yesterday. Hmmm, Wilson Ramos would be an offensive upgrade, and defensive upgrade. They have...

Welcome Back: Phillies 11, Padres 5

Welcome Back: Phillies 11, Padres 5

This game was fun as hell. Since the weather makes it look like the Phillies and Padres will only play this one game over the weekend, it’s good that they got a win. The final score was 11-5, but it didn’t start that way. (Obviously.) I was at this game, and me and my dad got there just before first pitch. We decided to grab some food before we went to our seats, and when we sat down, the Phillies were already losing 3-0. Literally as my ass lowered itself into that blue plastic seat, a ball thrown by Jorge Alfaro, which was meant to catch a runner stealing, squeaked by Scott Kingery...
