And The Horse You Rode In On: Braves 2, Phillies 6

46

Let me be very clear about something: I do not like Larry Wayne Jones, Jr. at all. I don't care who knows it. If you try to tell me I'm wrong for doing so, I'm going to laugh in your face. I can,...

Olive Garden: Phillies 8, Braves 5

Deep-Sea Fishing: Reds 5, Phillies 4

I hate boats. Like I really hate boats. Cruise ships, yachts, canoes, I hate 'em all. I won't even sit on an inflatable raft in a wave pool, because if I do, that pool's going to be populated with...

Pittsburgh Pirates Possibly Pining for Prissy Pitcher?

10

CSNPhilly speculating that Cole Hamels might somehow end up in Pittsburgh by the trade deadline. Probably nothing actually worth talking about, but I just really wanted to write that headline. Plus, Gerrit Cole, anyone?

Point 'n' Laugh: Phillies 5, Mets 6

It's difficult to do anything else at this point. This entire season has really been some sort of cosmic prank on the Phillies, so why not take a moment and just laugh at them? There's already been...

Texas Rangers Scouting Cole Hamels

14

Rangers have a pretty damn good minor league system right now, so if this is true, we could in theory get some high-level prospects back. Top prize would easily be SS Jurickson Profar. One guy I'd like to take a look at is 3B Mike Olt. 23 years old, batting .303/.414/.595 with 20 HRs in AA, plays above-average defense. Only issue is a 24.6% K rate, but that might decrease with some more work. Seems like a bonafide slugging 3B, and we all know just how important they are to have...

The bit's down toward the end of the recap. It's apparently right elbow inflammation, which is never a good thing.

Upbeat Utley Joins Phillies for Workouts

+

Old news by now, but some of the stuff Chase is saying is very encouraging. If its true that he's completely pain-free while hitting, the addition of his bat into our lineup is going to be a boon for this offense. Call me cautiously excited.
