Rise and Phight: 3/1/2024

Nathan Ray Seebeck-USA TODAY Sports Marching into the new month No more Dollar Dog Nights at Citizens Bank Park? I now no longer believe in the compassion of humanity. Watching strangers ingest copious amounts of encased meats and publicly keeping tabs of the running tally while performing these feats was one of life’s simple pleasures. Now, that has been violently taken from us. What meaning does life have now? On to the links. Phillies news: Bryce Harper has officially been here long enough to have a top ten moments list with the Phillies. The team knows they have...

Rise and Phight: 2/28/2024

Rob Schumacher / USA TODAY NETWORK There is baseball on today! Ties are no fun, but in spring training they’re a necessity. No one wants their team on the field longer than the required nine innings during these fake games. The Phillies and Twins tied yesterday, which is great for everyone involved. Today, you get to watch them live! On to the links. Phillies news: It’s Paco Ball mania! Sweeping through camp, sweeping the nation. Catch the fever or you’ll be left behind.

Why the Phillies shouldn’t go over the 3rd Luxury Tax Threshold for Jordan Montgomery

Why the Phillies shouldn’t go over the 3rd Luxury Tax Threshold for Jordan Montgomery

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports I’m sure the comments are going to be great for this one. Given the lack of market for free agent pitcher Jordan Montgomery, the Phillies have been linked as a possible team by multiple insiders. Jon Heyman of the New York Post has said he wouldn’t be surprised if the Phillies had another big move coming. Mark Feinsand and Jon Morosi of MLB.com have also linked Montgomery to the Phillies before. It seems unlikely that the Phillies would make a move for him, Matt Gelb doesn’t think any meaningful pitching upgrade would come until...

2024 Season Preview: How much better can Bryson Stott get?

2024 Season Preview: How much better can Bryson Stott get?

Dave Nelson-USA TODAY Sports He’s good but there’s one element that could help him take a leap. Just like the rest of the roster, the infield was mostly run back. Sure, you may see the occasional day of Whit Merrifield at second base, but he was signed to mostly play the outfield given the roster construction. We already know that Trea Turner needs to be a better defender, Bryce Harper just needs to stay healthy, and Alec Bohm has to pull the ball more. What has gone under the radar is Bryson Stott, who put together a good second season in 2023 but it still felt...

Nathan Ray Seebeck-USA TODAY Sports This season is over already The Phillies didn’t win a game yesterday? The season is lost. When is the usual time for overreactions? How long until people start making outlandish judgements based on at bats against minor league pitchers and hitters? Surely no one here would ever be guilty of that. On to the links. Phillies news: Why does Bryce Harper, with 8 years left on his deal, want to negotiate another long-term extension? Johan Rojas has entered this spring with a “win or else” mentality that has changed his outlook. This...

Nathan Ray Seebeck-USA TODAY Sports An encouraging weekend for the Phillies There were some positives this weekend for the Phillies during their first few games. The offense was very good in both games while the pitching was....eh. Aaron Nola looked sharp in his two innings, Jeff Hoffman and Jose Alvarado were both good. But that Saturday game was rough to watch. On to the links. Phillies news: Whit Merrifield likes the culture the Phillies have created after being around for a bit now. Justin Crawford is trying to make the major leagues and has some help from one of...

Phillies 4 Yankees 0: Come for Mick Abel and stay for Trea Turner

Nathan Ray Seebeck-USA TODAY Sports They allowed one hit to the Yankees in a Spring Training game, pretty cool. The Phillies start Spring Training 2-0 with wins over the Blue Jays and Yankees over the weekend. Speaking of yesterday’s game against the Blue Jays, this recap will be of a similar note-taking format. Here is a link to it if you didn’t get to see Whit Merrifield and Michael Mercado. Today’s game against the New York Yankees offered more of the regulars than before. Aaron Nola, Matt Strahm, Jeff Hoffman, José Alvarado, and Seranthony Domínguez all...

One of the most enjoyable things about Spring Training is watching the young talent hustle in hopes of making the roster at the end of camp. What do you think the roster will look like come opening day? Phillies news: Todd Zolecki breaks down yesterday’s performance by Rojas, Kingery, and Wilson.

Phillies 14 Blue Jays 13: Some Interesting Highlights

Nathan Ray Seebeck-USA TODAY Sports The first game of 2024 for the Phillies resembled a football score and there’s not much to react to. The first of potentially over 200 Phillies games in 2024 is in the books and the score resembled something that could happen in football. Since this isn’t a game that counts for anything, I’ll just highlight some of the key performances (good and bad) that might matter for the regular season. Keep in mind that this is the first game of a very long season so you can probably take whatever I write with a grain of salt. It’s...
