Can someone make a move already?

Kent Tekulve delivers the pitch
I don’t know why I have a picture of Kent Tekulve. I just wanted a picture of Kent Tekulve.

Everyone alright after that Eagles game? I tunes out about halfway through the second quarter. My one year old was sick and wanted to watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. I didn’t feel like fighting it. Oh well, let’s move on to better things, like Phillies baseball!

Other Phillies news:

MLB esoterica:

  • A trade was made over the weekend. The Astros got their Marwin Gonzalez replacement from Toronto. A lot of rumors I see on the internet seem to be connecting the Phillies and Gonzalez simply because he can play a lot of positions and Gabe Kapler likes having people who can play a lot of positions. Um, don’t we want him to do these things well? Sure he was good in 2017 (144 wRC+) but his line was also fueled by a .344 BABIP. When that number regressed, so did his other numbers. He’s just an average defender. Color me skeptical about giving him significant money.
  • Kenley Jensen is set for another heart surgery. Get well soon, Kenley.
  • The Red Sox are bringing the gang back together, re-signing Steve Pearce to a deal. One year at $6.25 million? I’ll allow it.

Dear Lord, someone do something. Until next time...
