    I can remember past Aprils with comparably miserable weather (but no Covid-pauses), but I can't remember a time where short and long-term weather forecasts have wreaked such havoc with trying to set...

    Ppd. So probables for Denver are deGrom, Lucchesi and Stroman. I'm wary, because of injury risk and the risk of wasting a start that might be ppd., of starting Jake in that weather, in that ballpark,...

    Rain delay. Let's all get ready to blame Rojas for a decision he isn't going to make.

    I wouldn't count on Lucchesi going past 4 or 5 at Coors in his first start, so that's likely to be a bullpen game, too. If all three games are played we're likely to see a lot of Gsellman, whether we...

    Wouldn't be surprised to see Yamamoto travel with them to Denver. Activation will likely depend upon weather, and whether he's needed at all. They may postpone one or two games, or none.

    The Phillies must be thrilled. Facing the best pitcher on the planet for a noon start the day after losing a night game. Curious to see these lineups.

    Showers aren't scheduled to start until 2pm. I'd roll the dice and hope Jake can make quick work of them and be in the clubhouse before it gets ugly (the weather, and possibly the bullpen).

    An 8pm start, which is not guaranteed with the weather, along with the potential for in-game delays, would put them on a plane to Denver sometime early Friday morning. I doubt the union allows for...

    I would have let Peterson come out for the 7th. But a bit of context: we're third in the in league in ERA and WHIP, which is a reflection of how the entire staff is used. The BP has been shaky, but...

    I think it was a combo of the layoff and wanting him to end on a great note after the first outing. He can be a big contributor to this rotation beyond this game. On the other hand, he's a big boy,...

    Lots of Ks for him. Touching 95 with his stuff makers him significantly better. Also, he's a smart guy who will make adjustments, and clearly has since his last start. Much more aggressive in the...

    Interesting. Wonder if McNeil decided to briefly change his approach yesterday to slap out a few hits to get his mojo back.

    Good for Lowrie, Matz and Ramos, but Giminez is the only one who I like long-term from either list, and he'd be a utility guy on this team.

    This is a good point. Other than Lugo, who is more about spin rate than velocity, we haven't developed a young flamethrower for the pen. Smith and Barnes, who can be good, throw hard (95 avg...

    We had a Covid pause and multiple rainouts. The offense has mostly underperformed. The starting pitching has been very good. The pen has not been horrible but obviously needs help. Yet we're in first...

    Stroman handled a tough lineup. Horrible day from the Phillie's POV. Blown lead. Lousy D. 2Ls. And Nola looks like a guy who will decline as the season progresses.
