The lockout is over, the freeze is lifted....
...and now the fun begins.
Free agent signings can begin and it promises to be an exciting, chaotic time in the next few days. Players need somewhere to play in 2022 and teams have been creating plans during the lockout. There had to have been a few back channel discussions, a “hey, glad I ran into you”-s while we all waited. With teams finally able to make some moves, the floodgates could be open.
Here in this thread, we’ll keep you up to date with any moves that the Phillies make. A sprinkle of analysis here, a dash of opinion there before we go more in depth on any moves. Let’s jump on this roller coaster together.
