Mike Trout is about to get paid, but not by the Phillies The big news on Tuesday was that Mike Trout decided to stay in Anaheim for a long time. Which means it’s slightly less probable that he inevitably ends up in a Phillies uniform. Here at The Good Phight: Paul Boyé explains how Mike Trout may have done us a favor. Once upon a time there was a team called the Expos, and they had a pitcher named Randy Johnson. John Stolnis recalls the time he faced off against the Phillies.

Phillies: In-depth rotation strategy for April and July

Phillies likely to start season with two players on the shelf

Two key role players will likely miss Opening Day for the Phillies. Phillies relief pitcher Tommy Hunter and outfielder Roman Quinn are both expected to start the 2019 season on the injured list, according to multiple Phillies beat writers.

Phillies future still bright without Mike Trout fantasy

While the Phillies might be disappointed, there’s no reason to fret Mike Trout not being a free agent. Phillies fans saw their biggest dream die Tuesday afternoon after learning New Jersey’s own Mike Trout (a well-documented Eagles and Sixers fan) reportedly agreed to the largest contract in North American sports history. Even before Philadelphia inked Bryce […] Phillies future still bright without Mike Trout fantasy - That Balls Outta Here - That Balls Outta Here - A Philadelphia Phillies Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Mike Trout and the Angels just saved us from ourselves

Mike Trout and the Angels just saved us from ourselves

The juice would have been worth the squeeze, but now we can save our strength He’d have still been worth it in two years. The Phillies could have afforded him. He could have helped form an outfield for the ages. Now, none of that matters. Mike Trout agreed to a jaw-droppingly large 12-year, $430 million contract extension with the Angels Tuesday, dethroning Bryce Harper’s three-week old deal for the largest in baseball history. It also happens to be the largest pro sports contract in, well, pro sports history. “Historic” is an apt word for it. It also deprives the 2020-21 free agent...

Remembering the night the 1988 Phillies faced Expos rookie Randy Johnson

Remembering the night the 1988 Phillies faced Expos rookie Randy Johnson

It was late in 1988. The Phils and Expos met in an empty Montreal stadium. And a baby legend took his first steps toward the Hall of Fame. For all fans of baseball, there is a golden age, that time when you first became a fan and fell in love with the sport. For me, the late 1980s was that time, and I cut my teeth on some pretty unremarkable Philadelphia-based baseball squads. Those Phillies from 1985-1992 were especially heinous at times, but that’s part of what made them so lovable. I loved watching those underachieving teams play in a horrible stadium to the sultry voice of Harry...

Mike Trout makes curious decision to stay in Los Angeles

Mike Trout makes curious decision to stay in Los Angeles

The would-be Phillie apparently wasn’t all that eager to come home Remember all that talk about how it would be okay if the Phillies missed out on Bryce Harper and Manny Machado because they could potentially sign Mike Trout in a couple of years? Thankfully John Middleton and the rest of the Phillies’ front office didn’t share that belief, because Trout has apparently decided to spend the remainder of his playing days on the west coast. According to Jeff Passan, Trout is in the process of finalizing a 12 year/$430 million deal with the Angels, that will presumably keep him on their...

Aaron Altherr had a rough 2018 and now faces a crowded outfield situation. Can he carve out a role with the Phillies this year?
