The Show 20 Phranchise Episode 4

We’re Going Streaking! Thursday was a tough day. I know we’re all disappointed in the wake of a cancelled opening day and that we’re all still dealing with the absence of sports in our own ways. I was still able to find some joy that day by seeing some replays of old classics, watching Field of Dreams, and enjoying Rhys Hoskins pull out the W against Miguel Rojas in The Show 20! If you weren’t able to find a reason to smile that day, maybe this will help… The Phrancise is in first place! Take a look at some recaps from an outstanding 8-game roadtrip. 4/9/2020: Phillies 9, Reds 8,...

How MLB’s deal with the union could affect the Phillies

How MLB’s deal with the union could affect the Phillies

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports The Phillies’ star catcher is still set to be a free agent after this season, no matter what. Major League Baseball and the Player’s Association have reportedly agreed on a series of rules for the now-truncated 2020 season that would allow all players in the final year of their contracts to become free agents at the end of the year, even if no baseball is played. That was part of a compromise on service time between the two sides, according to ESPN’s Jeff Passan. The most important thing for the players: In the doomsday scenario of no 2020...

We've never seen a moment like this where there's so much uncertainty, be it in our daily lives, our health, the economy, or the world of sport. Given the circumstances, we all need to find outlets to draw our minds away from this dreadful news cycle.Thursday would have been Opening Day with the Phillies beginning a series in Miami with the Marlins. The stoppage of baseball activities across the region is a significant setback for the Philadelphia Baseball Review. Rightly so at this point, niche-based sports news Websites aren't in demand.

Photo by Corey Perrine/ Listen, it’s all we got... We know what this game thread was supposed to be, but it’s not happening. No baseball is being played anywhere in real life. Instead, baseball players are playing each other using MLB The Show and broadcasting it on YouTube. It’s not baseball but guess what - it’ll have to do. So here’s your game thread for the matchup involving the Phillies and Marlins. This was supposed to be the matchup we were getting on our TVs for Opening Day, but instead, we’ll watch two people sit and play a video game. Rhys Hoskins will play...
