    Papeldouchecanoe?

    Most players actually like Papelbon, and he has an 80 grade work ethic. He's just not the most media savvy. My sources tell me he's a positive clubhouse presence.

    Alec Asher, aka the other throw-in to the Cole Hamels trade, was scratched from his Triple-A start today. Jim Salisbury thinks he's in the process of joining the MLB roster.

    Unless they're signing a Heyward, the players they ink should be intended only for one of two purposes - "contending" in 2016 or being traded for future parts.

    I mentioned Leake, but the problem with him is his age. He's very young so he could potentially draw a long contract from somebody. Given that his performance isn't that far above replacement level,...

    I see them signing three SP. Maybe one of Samardzija/Zimmermann as a pseudo buy-low (~5 yrs, $70MM), a Leake or Happ-type (~3-yrs, $24MM), and another $5MM Harang-type.

    Harrison and Morgan aren't...

    Too bad Dombrowski didn't get the Red Sox job before the trade deadline. Not that the Phillies got a bad return.

    John Richy was the other piece. Another rotation depth piece. Accrue enough of those and one is liable to surprise. Overall, I'm pleased with the return. It's better than I expected although I still...

    Where are you seeing him struggle? He has a 113 wRC+ with a solid .249/.342/.395 slash, .265 BABIP, 12.3 BB% and 10.4 K%. Oh, he's also the youngest player in the league with 300 PA by over a year.

    I'm guessing they're waiting to announce the trade in front of the fans. He's in uniform tonight but obviously isn't playing.

    Not out of the gate. I don't see him playing much until 2017 or even 2018. The Phillies like their prospects to be finished products when they're promoted. The scouting reports are pretty negative...

    Not sure you're going to see any real signings. Maybe the club would go after a catcher like Matt Wieters. I think it's unlikely. Other than that, maybe 2-3 Harangs and a buy low reliever.

    I could...

    I have a feeling this will turn around faster than we originally expected. The organization seems to be moving in the right direction with its modernization efforts.

    I would keep Utley actually. His option will be valued around $10MM. That's an easy one to accept. The club just needs to make it clear that he's not to play through injury. Especially without...

    I think I'd roll the dice on Utley and Biddle for Castro. If my instincts are right about Biddle, he might not succeed until he's 28 - and that's if he stays healthy. He's a high risk, modest reward...

    And fwiw, I do think Jesse Biddle will eventually be a mid-rotation pitcher if he stays healthy. He might need the long track like Carlos Carrasco.

    Castro is signed cheaply enough that he won't kill the payroll if he turns out to be a flop. His soft contact rate has spiked this year, but we don't know if that's indicative of a short or long term...
