    Philadelphia Phillies talk

    We’re all baseball fans but we don’t talk very much about real baseball. So let’s start a thread per team and see if anything develops.

    Let’s see how many fans CSFBL has for every MLB team. If you’re a Phillies fan, post in this thread.

    Post something simple like “hello” so we know how many of you there are. Or tell us why you became a fan. Share your favorite memory, favorite player, favorite game, brush with greatness…whatever. Brag about the team. Complain about the team. Trades they should make. Free agents they should go after. Videos of top plays or epic fails. Articles or blog posts of interest. You get the idea. If you’re really a Phanatic….then show it.

    Also, Red Sox Nation, Cards Clubhouse and Wrigleyville are all very active and successful CSFBL leagues. If there are enough of you, maybe we’ll get a Phillies themed league started. So if that's of any interest to you, you can mention that here too.

    Ok I'll bite. Rhys Hoskins sure put some energy in a team barely over 50 wins. ALL the young pitching hasn't lived up to expectations thus far. Nola should be fine but I feel like he's Hamels all over again, sure an ace on this staff but maybe a #3 on a good team.

    Eickhoff took step backward now he's done with injury. I wish they trades Velasquez when there was interest last season.

    Franco is a very good defender buy refuses to adapt at the plate and if he continues he'll always be a .230 hitter with 20-25 HRs.

    The fact that Freddy Galvis hits anywhere other than 8th is a joke. GG SS but too erratic at the plate.

    Still some others in system, we'll see what happens. But the whole anticipation about the future of this club could be futile. To compare it to Chicago or Houston's recent rebuilds is ridiculous. There are no Correa's Bryant's or Baez' in this group.

    Rhys Hoskins reminds me of Dom Brown in 2013...

    Sorry, thats not a good comp, but he was just as much on my radar as brown was.

    did you notice my comment about Franco not adjusting? That was Dom's problem. He used to talk about the success he had that season like it was a switch that was going to come on at any time. I believe he made the ALL Star team and refered to himself as an All Star as if he had more than 1/2 a good season in his pitiful little career.

    Yeah, this was a touchy subject. One of those "Prospects" that held up the 1st deal to get Halladay a season prior.

    Re: Philadelphia Phillies talk

    Hoskins looks great. Problem is we've seen so many young guys recently come up and drop off after the league adjusts to them. But I do have my fingers crossed for Hoskins.
    Moniak should be good but he's years away.
    I had the opportunity to talk with Aaron Nola last year. He's a good kid. Too bad we have nothing else to help him out...

    Re: Philadelphia Phillies talk

    Thames and Judge are two guys who seems to fit the dom brown profile... need to adjust again. Hopefully they can study kris bryant and TMGS some more to figure it out

    Almost 4 years later and 3 late season collapses later, we've seen plenty out of to know that he runs hot and cold, though he's on fire now. Nola is looking good as well.

    Mickey Moniak has finally made the big leagues, but he's struggling at the plate.

    Vince Velasquez, amazingly enough, is still on the team.

    And , in fact, Vinny Velo is in the rotation and pitching the best of his career. Having said this, he will most likely crap out now.

    Re: Philadelphia Phillies talk

    Dombrowski and Girardi need to play about 100 seasons of csfbl to learn the importance of defense. Their infield is brutal, Bohm, Segura, Gregorius and Hoskins are all way below average. McCutcheon is terrible. Realmuto is rated average but the pitchers ERA is 1.50 higher when he catches than his backup. This is not an easy problem to fix without overhauling your personnel. Their defense is historically bad, not only do they not catch the ball, but their RNGs are terrible and they make at least 2 or 3 boneheaded plays per game.

    As csfblers know as well as anyone, upgrading SS, LF and 3b would make a huge difference, they could probably get by with Segura, Herrera, Harper and Hoskins. I'm not sure if they even realized what a liability Bohm is, they were so anxious to get him in the lineup. With his bat struggling, I would send him down for a while when Gregorius comes back, move Didi to third, get the new kid Williams spelling Cutch out there as much as you can get away with, and keep Torreyes at short, when Nola and Eflin are pitching. These are the guys that pitch more to contact, and their FIPS are showing it. Nola has a 3.46 FIP and a 4.06 ERA, that's a big spread, and Eflin is 3.89 ERA and 3.11 FIP. I think that defensive adjustment could be enough to win the division for the Phillies in 2021, and they can improve further by not resigning Cutch or Didi in the offseason.
