The Phillies let down Spencer Howard

The Phillies let down Spencer Howard

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports This is a story of a how a team failed a player Starter. Reliever. Starter. Bulk guy. Traded. A few years ago, the team chose Spencer Howard over Sixto Sanchez to keep in a deal to get done for J.T. Realmuto. If it is possible for a team to let down a player in the midst of his development, Spencer Howard is it. 2021 stats (w/ Phillies): 28 1⁄3 IP, 1.02 WHIP, 24.4 K%, 13.4 BB%, 0.6 HR/9, 1.48 WHIP, 5.72 ERA (4.02 FIP), 0.4 fWAR The good The first time Howard had to face the opposition, he was outstanding.

2021 report card: Brad Miller

2021 report card: Brad Miller

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports The Phillies asked too much of Brad Miller in 2021 – and exposed his flaws in the process – but he still ended up with a solid season. I really like Brad Miller. That shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise, since this is my third time writing about him in the past six months. In May, I wrote about just how good Miller had been over the past few years. At that time, his 123 wRC+ since the start of 2019 ranked second on the team, behind only Bryce Harper and ahead of guys like Rhys Hoskins and J.T. Realmuto. My point was not that...

Aaron Nola should be the Phillies’ shortstop sooner or later

Aaron Nola should be the Phillies’ shortstop sooner or later

Photo by Casey Sykes/ The Phillies need a shortstop and Aaron Nola needs a change of scenery – it’s a perfect fit. This morning, the Philadelphia Inquirer put out an article saying that the Phillies should consider moving Gold Glove catcher J.T. Realmuto to the outfield. It’s a pretty genius idea when you think about it. The Phillies are in need of guy to play left field. J.T. Realmuto is a guy. Plus, recent history indicates that Phillies players can have a lot of success when they’re moved to left field, even if they’ve never played the position before in...

Rise and Phight: 11/11/2021

Gregory Fisher-USA TODAY Sports Happy Veteran’s Day, folks. And thank you to all who served Voting is underway for the All-MLB team and the Phillies have some good shots at winning a few spots. Bryce Harper and Zack Wheeler should have better than decent shots at being named to the team, while J.T. Realmuto might struggle to overcome Will Smith and Salvador Perez. What’s crazy to me is that Jean Segura is being overlooked a bit as a second base nominee. Sure these are popularity contests and he isn’t the biggest name, but his final numbers do stack up nicely with...

Philadelphia Phillies 2021 player grades: Andrew McCutchen

Andrew McCutchen’s offense power in 2021 wasn’t enough to convince the Phillies to pick up his 2022 option When the Philadelphia Phillies signed Andrew McCutchen prior to the 2019 season, they added a veteran leader who, combined with J.T. Realmuto and prized free agent Bryce Harper, could lead the Phillies to the post-season. As it […] Philadelphia Phillies 2021 player grades: Andrew McCutchen - That Balls Outta Here - That Balls Outta Here - Philadelphia Phillies News, Rumors, and Fan Community
