Some news yesterday that shouldn’t have surprised anyone

We wrote yesterday about how the Phillies have outrighted Scott Kingery off of the 40-man roster, so you can imagine what most of the chatter around the Phillies will be centered around. It’s one they probably swallowed hard and made, but the fact is that no one in charge of the roster right now was the one that signed Kingery to the extension that is even keeping him on the roster in the first place. If he didn’t sign that extension, if he simply was allowed to develop at the proper rate in the first place, maybe we’re having a different conversation about him today. Instead, we just shake our heads and mutter about it finally happening.

On to the links.
