We talk about the status of the team and whether or not people should care about the team this year over at TheWooderCooler
Fangraphs and Baseball Reference have agreed to use a uniform replacement level for their WAR calculations.
I hope this is okay to post here! I've been a fan/lurker/poster on the Phight for years under various usernames and just wanted to share the fun news that my new book is out. It's very largely about Phillies fandom and in fact partially inspired by TGP :) It's also a mystery novel for kids 9-12. Just wanted to share!
What the hell, right? They can use another 6th starter AND he's a player named Young. A twofer!

I recorded a Phillies preview with Amazin' Avenue's Jeffrey Paternostro last night. I refrained from mocking the Mets, which is the only time in history I've ever passed up an opportunity to mock the Mets. I can't tell if it's personal growth or if I'm regressing. Starting at the 59:06 mark, I talk about Domonic Brown, Ryan Howard, Roy Halladay, and -- of course -- Delmon Young. Many thanks to Jeff for inviting me on!
