This is amazing! I am very OK with the Phils being no-hit if this is the trade-off!!!!! CHOOOOOOCCCHHHHH!!!!!!!! Someone should front page this info (not necessarily this post of course).

Offer your thoughts on who the Phillies SHOULD take in the May 31 SBN MinorLeagueBall mock draft

I am serving as the scouting director and GM for the organization, and welcome whatever input you care to offer. We're now officially open for player nominations.

Open Call for Good Phighters Who Wish to Serve as Scouts for the Phillies in Advance of SBNation's Minor League Ball 2014 MLB Mock Draft

+

I am serving as the Phillies scouting director for a 4-round mock draft that will take place on May 31 at John Sickels' SBNation prospecting site, and I have targeted starting pitching as the major organizational weakness in the farm system. The above URL link includes detailed tables that illustrate just how poor the state of minor league starting pitching was in 2013. If you have both an interest and some time to spare in the next 2 weeks researching and vetting draft candidates, please click over to Minor League Ball and volunteer to serve as a scout.

Phillies Seat Discounting Begins in Earnest

19

I received a link in my email today about "Phillies Phriday" allowing me to buy $38.00 and lower tickets (including my favored 211 - 206 seating area) at 50% off. Don't worry, if you need 3 seats, you get each for 50% off, it isn't a strict "buy one get one." I am guessing that the seat sales are bad. This is a weekend game (Friday night) against a division rival with Cliff Lee starting for the Phillies.

Up Close on Baseball’s Borders

Fans may not list which team they favor on the census, but millions of them do make their preferences public on Facebook. Using aggregated data provided by the company, we were able to create an unprecedented look at the geography of baseball fandom, going down not only to the county level, as Facebook did in a nationwide map it released a few weeks ago, but also to ZIP codes.

Torturing Statistics.

It seems like a mistake to think that Lee's comically high BABIP is an indicator of his decline rather than bad luck, especially with such a small sample size. It's true Lee's LD rate is a little bit high (note this is true also for Wainwright who the author commends for having a very low BABIP) , but his basic peripherals are good.

For Baseball-Loving Numismatists

The U.S. Mint is making a National Baseball Hall of Fame Commemorative Coin with one side featuring a baseball and the other featuring a glove. The cool feature is that the coin is curved so that it looks like the ball is 3D and the glove has a pocket. A little pricey, but maybe a good gift for someone (or yourself).

Freddy Galvis could soon be out of hospital

Couple notes here, but the big one is that Galvis could be out of the hospital "As soon as Monday". Still no timetable on his return, of course, but it's great to hear he's recovering well.
