Former Phillies prospect leads MiLB in impressive stat

Phillies-turned-Giants prospect Carson Ragsdale leads all of MiLB in strikeouts. Last summer, the Philadelphia Phillies traded Connor Seabold to the Boston Red Sox as part of a deal that landed them relievers Brandon Workman and Heath Hembree. Both acquisitions greatly struggled, leading to neither returning for a second season in red pinstripes.

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports Win the game today please Your favorite part of last night’s game was the ending, I’ll bet. Mine was watching Joe Girardi get angry at Odubel Herrera. For some reason, he decided to bunt with a man on second, a man that had just been bunted over for the first out. Bunting him to third would have been asinine, so you can see how angry Girardi gets at him.

Thank goodness: Phillies 3, Orioles 2

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports I’m not sure I could have survived had this team lost tonight Was tonight a “must win” game? Was this whole series a “must win”? The answer to the former should truthfully be a solid maybe, but the latter was an easy yes. The Phillies had to have this series against the Orioles, one way or another. Letting Baltimore shut them out last night only toughened the assignment for them as they came into tonight’s tilt. Unfortunately the team had to use a bullpen game since they don’t have the depth to cover this many starts. The...

Monday’s series opener against the Orioles was utterly humiliating for the Phillies, there’s no way around it. Tuesday, they’ll haul out Adonis Medina, a rookie with only six total innings of big-league experience over the last two seasons.

Two veteran leaders who must perform for the Phillies to reach the playoffs

Two veteran leaders who must perform for the Phillies to reach the playoffs

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ If McCutchen and Didi don’t get going, you can kiss the playoffs goodbye. To say that 2021 has been a frustrating and perplexing season for Andrew McCutchen and Didi Gregorius would be an understatement. It’s been largely awful for both players, especially as the Phillies try to end a nine-year postseason drought. Offensively, Bryce Harper, J.T. Realmuto and Jean Segura have largely held up their end of the bargain, with Harper carrying the team on his shoulders much the same way Ryan Howard did on his way to the 2006 NL MVP award. But in...

Let’s try Matt Vierling at leadoff

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports Because why not The Phillies have had some leadoff issues this year. Collectively, they have been getting a .697 OPS out of the leadoff position, good for 28th in baseball. It’s been difficult for them to find someone who could be productive for longer than two weeks and be able to leave him there. In a frenzied search to find that leadoff hitter, they have used 11 players to start the game offensively. Of those 11 hitters, Joe Girardi has penciled in three players the most. Here are the stats for those hitters as leadoff hitters: Odubel...

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports Well... There was an interesting question posited last night on the Twitter about the Phillies in 2022. Let me ask a question, if the Phillies could trade Didi, and sign Kris Bryant, would you be ok with Galvis at SS next year?— Yoshke Zoidberg (@YoshkeZoidberg) September 21, 2021 It’s an interesting question, but it also seems pretty obvious what the answer should be. If the team can get Kris Bryant to come and play third (assuming he goes there and Alec Bohm goes to leftfield), the team would need a solid defensive shortstop....

Not just because they need every game they can get, but they need to beat these bad teams if they want to stay in the race for the division.

Former Phillies outfield prospect returns to majors as reliever

Anthony Gose once was a Phillies outfield prospect. He’s now a lefty reliever. A former Philadelphia Phillies outfield prospect traded 11 years ago — before debuting and playing a combined 372 games with the Toronto Blue Jays (2012-14) and Detroit Tigers (2015-16) — has returned to the majors … as a reliever.

Phillies welcome the Orioles to open most important homestand in recent memory

The Phillies return to Citizens Bank Park Monday to open their final homestand of the season, a seven-game swing that includes series against two of baseball's worst teams in the Orioles and the Pirates.  The club is two games off the pace in the National League East and 3 1/2 from the second Wild Card position with 13 games remaining, including a three-game set next week with the division-leading Braves.  “We are going to take it game-by-game,” Bryce Harper said on Sunday night, following the Phils' 3-2 loss to the Mets. “We really understand what we are doing as a team -- score...
