Iron Pigs will wear Bacon (Logo) Hats

+

I'd love it so much more if somehow it had actual bacon on it, but I definitely will be buying one of these hats

Phils still in running for Burnett as of 2/10/14 10PM

Phils still in running as of tonight per Zolecki, against what Salisbury said Friday. IMO this is a game-changer if it happens (though not "likely" yet).

2014 Projections from Clay Davenport

3

Clay Davenport (who I hadn't heard of, to be honest, but is the co-founder of Baseball Prospectus), released his 2014 projections last week. He has the Phils at a pitiful 70-92 record. A couple of things jump out about his projections: Position players' WARP totals 16, which is reasonable, except that it includes Cesar Hernandez at minus 3.1. I have to think there must be an error somewhere. Pitchers WARP totals 18, for a total of 34 for all players, but 34+48 (replacement) would be 82 wins, not 72, so he must be assuming a different replacement level than what Fangraphs and Baseball Reference use.

Bobby Abreu

Bobby Abreu reportedly heading back to Philly. Thoughts?

Manuel returning to Phils as adviser to Amaro

+

I guess he might do some scouting or something.

Trading Domonic Brown

+

I don't usually try to pimp my work here but since there is TGP blogger involvement I thought I would. Essentially the project is to have different bloggers take on the mindset of other team's GMs and try and trade for Domonic Brown.

Roy Halladay to retire as a Blue Jay

+

The long-time ace will announce his retirement in a Blue Jays press conference Monday, in which he'll also announce he's signing a one-day contract with Toronto, so he can retire as a Blue Jay.

Why Kids Love Baseball

Nice article on Slate on why baseball is so awesome.

Joyner to return to Phillies coaching staff in '14

+

Huh. So apparently Joyner is coming back now. Samuel is back too. Also, Phils outright J.C. Ramirez, Cesar Jimenez, Roger Bernadina, and Casper Wells off the 40-man. Nothing too shocking, none of those guys are actually good, but certainly noteworthy.
