Phillies TV Deal: More Money Than Amaro Can Waste?

108

As the Dodgers TV deal looks more and more like a $7 to $8 billion dollar deal, what does the future hold for the Phillies after the current deal expires in 2015?

Yuniesky Betancourt: Not the Anti-Christ

67

Reports on Phillies players from Instructs - Fangraphs

Excellent write-up on Larry Greene, Lewis Alezones, and Carlos Tocci. A very detailed, good read.

Slow Motion Trainwreck: The Phillies and the Draft

67

The Phillies, a team built largely through the amateur draft, have done poorly in the last ten years. A mini-retrospective, but cover your eyes...

NSFW: Manager meltdowns transcribed by lipreader

4

It's pretty easy to see all the instances of "f***" but learning what words connect f***, f***, f***, f***, f***ity f*** is pretty entertaining, too. Not safe for work, as you might imagine.

The Phillies' 2013 offseason summarized to the tune of Thrift Shop. Does Ruben Amaro actually wear your grandpa's clothes? NSFW.

Should the Phillies pursue Anibal Sanchez?

39

The Phillies Can't Hit Lefties

The Phillies were terrible against left-handed pitching in 2013. Who is to blame, and how can they fix this for 2013?

2012 Phillies Exit Interview: Jimmy Rollins

A review of Jimmy Rollins' 2012 season, appropriately reimagined using the work of an opium-addled 19th century poet. It was that kind of year.

List of Phillie Killers

+

Doing some work on possible help for the Phillies against LHP, and I came across this list. If there is a "Phillie Killer" list, it might be this. When two of your top pitchers are lefties, I suppose it makes sense. This is a whole page of nightmares.

2012 Phillies Exit Interview: Jonathan Papelbon

Papelbon closed games for the Phillies in 2012 and he was really good at it. Is there any way he can be blamed for 2012? Scapegoating may be wrong, but it feels so good.

Baseball Prospectus: Extra Innings - a worthwhile read

3

At my library last week, I pIcked up a copy of "Extra Innings" from Baseball Prosepectus. It is well worth reading. The parts I really enjoyed were related to use of bullpens and how to construct a bullpen. In the section on constructing a pen, there was some great information on cost per WAR for by position (starter, reliever, fielders) and variability from one year to the next. It was really enlightening. I'd do a full review, but I'm, uh, booked right now at work. And if you do not have a card for your local library, GET ONE. Remember: you are not a Braves fan, and you can read.
