3. Jerad Eickhoff
4. Vince Velasquez
5. Ben Lively

4. Rhys Hoskins (1B)
5. Nick Williams (RF)
6. Maikal Franco (3B) (He shouldn't be batting this high but he will be)
7. Jorge Alfaro (C)
8. JP Crawford (SS) (Crawford may move up to the 7 spot or 2 spot on occasion)
9. Pithcer

Switch thompson and lively with darvish and cobb. And that team might be ok.

I know Middleton has explicitly stated he’s willing to spend. But what about Klentak and the rest of the personnel guys in the Phillies front office? 

Do they come from teams where spending big in FA was a strategy?

The phillies are a big money team why wouldn't they spend money in FA? They have tons of it.

Jake Thompson's been pitching better than everyone not named Nola since the All Star break.

still has no plus pitches so just smoke and mirrors. 

 

look at the numbers walks too many guys and doesn't strike anyone out. That's not a good pitcher. He's just a guy at this point a shame he forgot how to throw a slider.

The slider was plus at one point, with some calling it plus-plus. Just fell apart.

yeah but how do you forget how to throw a slider? Just seems weird not sure if I know of another top guy that just lost it.

So if the season ended today we would pick 1st. We are tied with the giants and `1 game ahead of the tigers and white sox.

We hold the tie breaker over every team and will pick before any if we finish with the same record.

 

Let's lose phillies let's lose.

you have VV in the rotation, I see him moving to the bullpen, its in his best/our best interest to go out there.. still think we need to get another sp and maybe move Cesar and bring up kingery

I see no get rid of Cesar, at least not yet, I was going with the players we have now. My -hope- is Cesar can play 3rd base and we can ditch the bum Maikel Franco, but that remains to be seen.
