September MMLBRC: Philadelphia Phillies

On the first Monday of each month we roll out our Monthly MLB Report Card (forever to be known as MMLBRC) for the Mets, Phillies and Yankees. We’ll still check in from time to time with short posts to quickly take the pulse of each team, but think of the MMLBRC as an in depth physical (anal probing not included). Truthfully, a month is probably too small of a sample size to make overarching claims like we will attempt to, but dammit, you want content! So rather than write well-reasoned quarterly updates, we’ll make rash decisions based on far too little data. Now in the box: the defending NL East champs.

The case for J.A. Happ

Maybe we’re making a bigger issue out of this than it really is — after all, by Thursday this could be a moot point if Pat Gillick & Co. exercise the same logic we’re about to — but we feel pretty strongly that J.A. Happ should be the man to replace the recently-demoted Brett Myers. Since the early noises coming out of Gillick’s camp are a bit mixed regarding Myers’ replacement, we figured it was a good opportunity to lay out the case for the lanky southpaw.

So listen up, Mr. Gillick…

Monthly Monday MLB Report Card: Philadelphia Phillies

On the first Monday of each month* we roll out our Monthly MLB Report Card (forever to be known as MMLBRC) for the Mets, Phillies and Yankees. We’ll check in early each week from here on out with short posts to quickly take the pulse of each team, but think of the MMLBRC as an in depth physical (anal probing not included). Truthfully, a month is probably too small of a sample size to make overarching claims like we will attempt to, but dammit, you want content! So rather than write well-reasoned quarterly updates, we’ll make rash decisions based on far too little data. Next up: the Fightin’ Phils.

*Note: we know, today’s Tuesday and not Monday. But we’ve been a little busy over the past few weeks, so deal with it.

Live Blog: The Team to Beat (part deux)

Courtesy of heister.com

When we last saw the Fightin’ Phils, they were beating the Nationals to win the NL East crown on September 30, 2007 (we’ve strangely lost all memory of some phantom “playoff series” alleged between the Phillies and Rockies). Six months later, the Nats return to Citizens Bank Park for Philadelphia’s Opening Day.

We’ll be live blogging below starting at 3:05 p.m. — assuming the weather holds up — so be sure to check back often. And feel free to leave any comments below.
