Roundtable: The Phillies are the worst, literally

It’s time for a Phillies Nation writers’ roundtable. Strap on in … We’re just past the quarter pole of the season, and at 15-29, the Phillies have the worst record in baseball. Are you surprised their record is this poor? DANIEL WALSH: I was never in the group expecting a .500 record or wild card run, but the record does have me surprised. I predicted something like 73 wins...

Howie Kendrick to Begin Rehab Assignment

The Phillies have been really bad. This has moved most discussions about the team to focus on how to fix the Phillies. In the wake of Daniel Nava’s injury and Michael Saudners’ poor start the focus has shifted to calling up Roman Quinn. It does appear the Phillies have some outfield help on the way, just not in the form of the 24 year old speedster. Instead this happened today...

Reddit’s Phillies community is now a Wawa community

Visitors to the Phillies community on Reddit, known to users as /r/Phillies, are in for a (probably pleasant) surprise. Usually a place to discuss news, articles, and opinions about the Phillies, the site has become a place for users to comfort one another through the shared experience of the Philly region’s most revered cultural entity: Wawa.

Philadelphia Phillies: Prospect Watch

As we’re now a quarter of the way through with the MLB season, it’s a good time to check into Triple-A Lehigh Valley and Double-A Reading to see how the Philadelphia Phillies prospects are performing with their seasons. While the Phillies have been playing atrocious baseball and have lost their last eight series in a row, it wouldn’t be surprising if they decided to shake...

Daniel Nava to DL, so guess who’s back on the squad?

Photo by Minda Haas Kuhlmann Daniel Nava was placed on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to May 21. He has a hamstring strain. That means our old buddy Adam Morgan is back in Philadelphia, recalled from Lehigh Valley. He’s an extra bullpen arm because, as you’ve seen, the bullpen needs arms these days. Meanwhile, IronPigs second baseman Jesmuel Valentin has a dislocated...

Aaron Nola’s Return Upgrades the Phillies Rotation

The Philadelphia Phillies have had terrible pitching this year. I have already addressed how there isn’t any immediate help on the way for the bullpen (though with speculation that Ricardo Pinto is moving to the bullpen that could change). Where there is immediate help for the Phillies is in the starting rotation. The Phillies did not win Aaron Nola’s first start back from injury...

Philadelphia Phillies: When should Jeremy Hellickson be traded?

Ever since the Philadelphia Phillies traded for Jeremy Hellickson in 2015, Hellickson has certainly exceeded expectations and pitched some of his best baseball for the Philadelphia Phillies. The last two seasons he’s thrown a joint 3.71 ERA for the team, and consistently placed the Phillies in a position to win. At 30 years old, it’s no secret that his window as an effective...

In the second game, he went 3-for-4 with a single, a double and two RBIs.

Aaron Altherr Is Breaking Out

Back in March, Jeff wrote a post entitled “Could Aaron Altherr Be Part of the Core?” Let’s start by just lifting a few paragraphs from that piece. Aaron Altherr has had a good spring. As should always go without saying, it’s a lot easier to have a good spring than to have a good summer. Worse players have posted better numbers, and we can seldom learn that much from these...
