You would have to dig where you don't like digging to find your answer. Did he get run support? Who did he go against? What was his pitch counts? Right on down into the very things the manager is using to pull them in the 4th or 5th inning. He may not have known he injured it as bad as it was. It even seems he was trying to use therapy and strength training to avoid surgery. Why get surgery when it is time to report and not get it right after the season and have time to work on it before spring training.



Could this be a ploy to rest longer and not have to do all the normal spring training drills? We are seeing a lot of veteran players saving themselves for the season. It would be nice to see him have one of his good years in our uniform for a change. Waugh!

Jim, Alfaro has a gun for sure, but sometimes a little inaccurate. May develop at some point, but Realmuto's arm is no slouch either. The upside for the Phil's at this point is enormous. Realmuto hits for average and power and is fast as h#$l. A good upgrade IMO.

Youíre right JB, it would take a lot of research to find the answers. IIRC, he wasnít pitching very well in August and September.

He had 6 decisions in all of Aug and Sept. 1 win and 5 losses. In all 5 losses the Phillies scored 3 or less. I don't know how many no decisions he had in that time. He pitched a gem against Boston July 31 and it was down hill from there. I hope he is his old self and we can get him a few runs. Waugh!

Okay, my mistake on his 2018 record. When I looked it up they were showing his starts and the team won/loss record, not his game decisions.

Well Philly fans are you guys going to sign Bryce Harper ? He would be a game changer, MLB thinks that"s where he"ll end up.

Harper has already turned down 300 million. The rumors say he will sign for somewhere close to 400 milllion and it will be with the Phillies. Thatís a lot of cabbage for one guy but hey, it ainít my money.

I would rather the Machado but one is better than none. The Yankees want and need Machado more than they need Harper. If we deal first for Machado we could land both. But that would just about block any additional pitching help. Hoping for the best. Waugh!

Manny Machado has signed with the Padres for a reported 300 million for ten years. I guess he can buy that new......well, I guess he can buy anything he wants.
