Photo by Mitchell Leff/ Did they even meet today? Imagine, if you will, a scenario where Mickey Moniak is the opening day center fielder. I don’t think it comes to fruition, especially if the rumors of the team trying to trade for Kevin Kiermaier are true, but what if they can’t get anyone? What if they decide to simply platoon Moniak and, say, Matt Vierling? Is that good enough? Would people be happy? I need baseball to come back. On to the links.

This Phillies tweet is a hilarious accidental reminder of how bad the pitching is

I don’t think the Philadelphia Phillies social team was trying to remind us that the pitching is terrible, but they just did. Trying to entertain fans during the ongoing lockout, the Phillies Twitter account asked people to choose one pitcher from franchise history to get the team out of a two-out bases-loaded jam.

Despite the Major League Baseball lockout, the Philadelphia Phillies are wasting no time to still improve their organization in the ways they’re still allowed.

5 Utility players the Phillies should sign after lockout

Michael Conforto is a great bounceback candidate for the Phillies to consider

Michael Conforto is a great bounceback candidate for the Phillies to consider

Photo by Rich Schultz/ Free agent outfielder Michael Conforto had a down year in 2021, but he has an excellent track record and his bat could make a big difference in the middle of the Phillies’ lineup. It’s very likely that the Phillies will sign one of the big-bat outfielders remaining on the free agent market. While there obviously haven’t been any rumors of late, the Phillies were said to be in talks with free agents Kris Bryant, Nick Castellanos, and Kyle Schwarber before the lockout, and Dave Dombrowski said back in November that upgrading the outfield was...

These are the Phillies’ biggest first-round draft busts

Are we closer to an agreement? Another day and more movement on the labor front. While the players might not be happy with yesterday’s talks, the fact that the talks are still happening is helpful. Oh and the Hall of Fame vote came in. On to the links. Phillies news: While no Phillies were voted in to the Hall, Scott Rolen inched a little closer while Jimmy Rollins lives to fight another year.

Former Philadelphia hurler and Phillies ace Curt Schilling belongs in the Hall of Fame

Curt Schilling posted a career 2.23 ERA in the postseason. | Photo: It's not a popular opinion, but Curt Schilling belongs in baseball's Hall of Fame. Unfortunately, it's doubtful he'll have his name called on Tuesday as a member of the Class of 2022. Schilling was 16 votes short last year of hitting the 75 percent mark needed for enshrinement. It appears, through public ballots, that he's lost momentum and may not even reach 65 percent this year, his last on the ballot. In fact, according to research from Ryan Thibodaux and his Hall of Fame ballot tracker, more than two dozen voters that...

Photo by Tim Warner/ The latest podcast touches on the greatest baseball games ever played, too! Is there a deal to be made? Multiple outlets have named the Phillies and Athletics as potential trade partners when the MLB lockout finally ends, specifically because of two players: third baseman Matt Chapman and center fielder Ramón Laureano. Last season, the Phillies received 1.7 fWAR of production from the center fielders, 6th-worst in MLB. At third, they received 0.7 fWAR, 7th-worst. Chapman, who was worth 6.7 and 6.1 fWAR in 2018 and ‘19, respectively, had a down...

Remembering the parks that Philly’s pro baseball teams have called home “People ask me what I do in winter when there’s no baseball. I’ll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring.” – Rogers Hornsby We scheme and dream about what kind of Phillies team the 2022 season and beyond will bring, but we also daydream about bright green manicured fields, warm sunshine, and the sounds of the game.
