MLB: Spring Training-Philadelphia Phillies at Detroit Tigers Butch Dill-USA TODAY Sports

Like that cigarette after a good meal us Phillies fans are kicking back after the Harper acquisition and biding our time until he plays on Saturday. At the front of our minds though is the notion that very soon our revamped 2019 team will take the field in meaningful games, thus beginning what many are hopeful is the next great chapter in Phillies history. I know for myself personally, I can’t expletive wait for opening day.

Here at The Good Phight:

  • Mailbag is here! Only now it’s in the form of tweets as opposed to mail. Maybe we should rename it TweetBag? Or TweetSack, just to really spice things up. Covered in this edition is Trout, the 2019 Phillies record as it pertains to the NL East and more.
  • We also review how the 2019 team can help out their rotation. Last year the offense tasked with scoring runs and the defense responsible for keeping opposing runs off the board was not so spectacular and that doesn’t seem like it’s going to be the case this year, at least on paper. Best laid plans, amiright?
  • There’s also a great look at upcoming draft prospect JJ Bleday (fun name to say by the way), a college outfielder who fits the mold of what appears to be the Phillies modus operandi in the form plate discipline -he has more walks than strike outs in his college career. There’s some video and it’s a very interesting look at what could be the next new Phillie.
