3 players acquired via trade the Phillies need more from in 2022

The Philadelphia Phillies have several trade acquisitions who need to step up in 2022 The Philadelphia Phillies don’t make a lot of trades, due in large part because they don’t have a lot that they’re willing to give up that other teams would actually want. 1.

The Dirty Inning #93: Sticks and Milestones

Photo by Focus on Sport/ Just an excuse to post a Steve Carlton picture, guys. With the arrival of 2022 comes many anniversaries, many of which do NOT involve Steve Carlton’s terrifying 1972 season. The Phillies played seasons in 1902, 1912, 1922, 1932, 1942, 1952, 1962, 1972, 1982, 1992, 2002, and 2012 and guess what they all have in common? They didn’t make the playoffs in any season ending in a “2.” Makes you feel good about their chances this year, huh?

January 27, 1982: Phillies make one of the worst trades in MLB history

Is the Larry Bowa/Ryne Sandberg – Iván de Jesus trade the worst in Phillies history? Another day, another anniversary of a terrible Philadelphia Phillies trade. Spoiler alert: there are a lot of them. For some reason, the Phillies love to send great players to the Chicago Cubs.

Both of these former Phillies are on the All-Star ballot. I actually like one of them. | Photo by Jed Jacobsohn/ Yay for Jimmy, boo for Scott Rolen The 2022 Hall of Fame voting results were revealed this week. Only one player was elected to the Hall of Fame, and he certainly wasn’t a former Phillie. However, two former Phillies did earn enough votes to stay on the ballot another year and perhaps increase their chances in the years to come.

I don’t think it comes to fruition, especially if the rumors of the team trying to trade for Kevin Kiermaier are true, but what if they can’t get anyone? What if they decide to simply platoon Moniak and, say, Matt Vierling? Is that good enough? Would people be happy? I need baseball to come back. On to the links.

This Phillies tweet is a hilarious accidental reminder of how bad the pitching is

I don’t think the Philadelphia Phillies social team was trying to remind us that the pitching is terrible, but they just did. Trying to entertain fans during the ongoing lockout, the Phillies Twitter account asked people to choose one pitcher from franchise history to get the team out of a two-out bases-loaded jam.
