There are some good things happening with the Phillies

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at Toronto Blue Jays Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

There was a little bit of optimism yesterday when we found out the team’s game in Dunedin was going to be televised. After all, we’re starved for baseball and anything that we can see is going to help feed that desire. But as we have railed at here at TGP, yet again baseball decided not to show it.

A shame too since Matt Moore came out and sat mid-90’s with his fastball, something he hasn’t regularly done since his 2016 good times. That was pretty much the only bright spot on the day as Vince Velasquez, the man Moore is fighting for in a bid to win a rotation spot, struggled again (more on him in a bit), Enyel de los Santos couldn’t maintain the velocity he showed earlier and Hector Neris struggled as well. Scott Kingery continued giving away the starting center fielder’s job while Mickey Moniak continued making his case.

The team will be on television tomorrow as they take on Detroit. Spencer Howard goes and hopefully he gets us all excited again.

On to the links.
