    He'll have a shot to compete for a role but it's not his to lose yet. Might be more of a reliever long term. We'll just have to see.

    Of they'll make the majors. But will they do something? Hopefully.

    Well the Phillies missed out on a free Rymer Liriano, but now Carlos Torres and Christian Friedrich could be targets. The 40-man roster is full, but I see several obvious cuts among the pitchers.

    I doubt any of us can muster even an iota of caring about Cespedes.

    Puerto Rican Delvin Perez is starting to draw more hype as a possible 1-1 pick. To which I say, thank god. Position players are usually better assets than pitchers for a long list of reasons.

    It's also possible that he'll be allowed to sign prior to next June. That would favor the teams that have already blown by their budget.

    If he's as good as they say (nobody has really seen him since he was 14), then he'll cost well over the pool cap. The Phillies have the option to acquire quite a bit of extra money from the teams...

    I happen to own him in a certain league we share. Would make it a lot easier for us to cash in Robertson.

    The Phillies inked Andrew Bailey and Edward Mujica to minor league deals. While I'd prefer for the club to also sign Tyler Clippard or someone of his ilk, it looks like they'll try to find a closer...

    On a side note, can you believe his forever contract extension is almost over? It's been like 6 years since he signed it.

    He does have a place on the right team. But the right team is somebody who has lost Plans A, B, and C.

    It's too early to tell for me. I would like to find a bat as I implied before. I don't really dig into draft though. I let the teams sort it out for me and pick up the analysis from there.

    Aumont's problem was command related. While Appel can lose feel for the strike zone, it's not such a large problem. He should at least be a solid setup reliever who relies more on his two plus...

    It does seem to be a pitching heavy top of the draft, although pitchers generally fare less well than hitters when picked first.

    They'll still target whoever they believe to be the top pick subject to their plans outside of the first round. Sometimes it's not beneficial to take the best player if the second best guy is nearly...

    The BA guys really like Arauz. They think he's Jose Guillen. Also saw him compared to Galvis with a better bat. I always take comparisons to guys within the same system with a grain of salt. There's...

    It's funny how much everyone is overreacting to this swap of Appel/Fisher. Not really a big shift in value - if any!

    That's a little short sighted (and not like you). Oberholtzer, if he stays healthy, is an uninspiring, league average pitcher. A 180 inning season from him (30 starts) can be expected to produce...

    The bullpen is a disaster zone right now, but at least they've fixed the rotation. As the Astros showed last year, it's not nearly as difficult to rapidly improve the bullpen.

    My reaction is that this was a decent if ever so slightly disappointing return. Still, the Phillies improved dramatically and cashed in a risky, elite asset. The rotation looks a whole lot more...

    The Astros are the team most engaged on Giles. I would expect the Phillies to ask for McCullers or A.J. Reed as a centerpiece. Both players are quite valuable so the remaining return might be small....
