I’m still thinking about the whole netting issue and how funny it was.
But really, the day should have been about the Phillies looked really good against the Nationals the last two days. With Washington down right now and not looking very good, it’s important to grab those victories that they should be getting. These next few days will be important as they face some really difficult teams, so getting these wins and banking them now was a big deal for them.
On to the links.
- On a day of good performances, it’s the grounds crew that is getting most of the accolades.
- Nick Maton has been optioned to Lehigh Valley. No word on a corresponding move. It’s best for Maton to get regular time he wasn’t getting here.
- Two Phillies had to go on the Covid list. If only there was a way to prevent such things from happening...
- Why yes, it is time to begin thinking about who can make the All-Star team from the Phillies.
- The story of this season will be substances, how they are affecting the game, and what MLB plans to do about it.
- Trevor Bauer, the face of the issue, has some questions to answer about his latest start.
- Trevor Story, shockingly enough, doesn’t plan on re-signing with the Rockies.
- Evan Longoria will be out for a while, something that could be an issue for a team fighting for a division lead.
