The Phils are going no where if Howard doesn't cut down on his Ks. He is on 200 SO year. If they are going to hold off the resurgent Mets, he needs to start making contact.

To think that in his last year with the Phils, Polanco K'd  only 19 times the whole year.

Phils Blow it

They did it again. Letting  both CC and Hardin get away when both teams need a closer, and the Phils have Myers in the minors trying to make him a sarter again

He was as close to a lock down closer as you could have wanted last year. Myers and another positon player from the minors would have landed either player.

Looks like the Brew Crew pulled the plug . Giving away three stud prospects to rent a pitcher ,who  will be in New York next year.

Myers For CC

It appears that Myers will never regain his form as a starter. He just was shipped out to Doule A in an attempt to stretch him out.

Given that Jenks is hurt, it gives the Phils the depth they need to go after CC for the penant run . With a low minor league throw in the Sox might be tempted to take a shot at Myers as their long range closer, while geting rid of CC who they will lose at the end of year .

The Phils by signing a long term contrat with Lidge, have all but religated Myers to a starter. His 5+ ERA as a starter just doesn't cut it.

The trade makes sense for both teams now.

Phils Magic ?

Are the Phils this good or the rest of the division that bad?

While teams thrive with players from the Dominican and South America, the Phils do not have one every day player from the island on any of their four highlest level minor league teams

And you wonder why they have nothing to offer Cleveland for CC..

WhyThe Phils Have Won Only One WS

It all comes back to the ownership. They have been cheap and more importantly racist over the years.

The Phils were the last NL team to sign a Black player, and still are confussed as to what they are doing in the Dominican.

When a team trades not one, but two HOF players for basically nothing, it shows where their fiscal heads are at.

Fregeson Jenkins for two washed up'd pithchers, partially because he was Black, mostly it was a contract year.

Sanberg as a throw in the Trillo trade?? Obviously Dallas Green who had left the team and gone to the Cubs knew something about this minor leaguer.

I say " show me the kown" and go get CC for the stretch drive this year. Time to make up for past transgretions to the fans of the city

With their league laed shrunk to 1/2 games over the weekend, it points out what we knew, they are a starter away from being able to put it away

Pat, the phones are waithing to ring in Chicago and Oakland

 C.C., Harden, and Duchsherer all out there to be had. Make the move as the clock it ticking before someone else does
