Yeah.  Pretty good team.  Really like Hoskins.

Odubel screwed the pooch on the Nunez liner.

Some MLB Network guys think Philly "announces themselves as serious" with deals today.

What position upgrade do you prefer?  I find iot fascinating Phils havent upgraded at SS.  Iglesias would be a great fit (Tigers only team to not have made a deal)

Next time.

I wonder if Evvie felt any compassion with the Nats humiliation of the Mets last night.

Hope the Sox start hitting again, they've been in eh since the ASG break.

Arrietta is clearly Phils leader.

They say you cant lead from an every fifth day situation, but its worked in the past with some teams.

One of the leaders, and certainly for the pitching staff. Believe it or not, the kid Hoskins is the leader in that young clubhouse.

I do agree it was a huge win for Phils

Mets are currently giving Nats a head of steam (Rizzo did as well when he dealt basically nobody).

Even today with Syndergaard - Nats up 3-zip already

For thiose who dont wish to look:

Loss column:

Braves
Phils  -1
Nats  -6

Overall

Phils
Braves  -0.5
Nats     - 5.5

Jose Reyes becomes the first player in history to allow 6 runs in an inning and then homer from both sides of the dish the next game he appears (as far as I know, that is)

3-2 Nats after 8

Nats DUMPED Shawn Kelly, who threw a hissyfit last night upon beimng used with a 24 run lead (Kelly had allowed just 1 earned run since June 23, but 3 last night)

Interesting move, as they replace him with a rookie first time up guy.

Trying to fix that chemistry......

Regarding chemistry. WTF is with the Astros bringing in Ocsuna?

Bad move.

I could envision


a)  Major protests

and

b)  Luhnow deciding not to use Osuna after all


- or none of that.....

Interesting situation indeed.

I just don't know how the gm thought he was improving the team. The players now have to answer all these questions, it's a distraction to them and puts the manager in a bind, and more. Very strange decision.

From TSN: The Astros manager said he wasn't sure how the clubhouse will react when Osuna joins the team Friday in Los Angeles to face the Dodgers.

"I met with our team shortly after the trade went down and I just told them, 'Feel how you're going to feel'," Hinch told MLB Network on SiriusXM Wednesday.

Osuna has been serving a 75-game suspension as a part of MLB's domestic violence policy but can be activated Sunday. He was arrested and charged with assault May 8, with his last MLB appearance May 6.

"It's going to be an emotional time for him, it's going be an emotional time for our team," Hinch said. "I know there's reactions all over the place. I think a lot of us, especially in our clubhouse, just don't really know what happened, what to think. We don't even really know the court case, court dealings.

"He's not somebody we've had in our clubhouse before."


The Astros have come under fire for acquiring Asuna, especially since he court case has not been resolved yet (his attorneys were in court again Wednesday in Toronto).

He could be due back in court Sept. 5, as the regular season starts to wind down.


"Feel how you feel"? The clubhouse doesn't "really know what happened", which means details to follow, and more questions for all of them. And a Sept. 5 court date?

So now the whole team has the carry this baggage to the finish line.

I don't get this move.

This account, and others that end with "phome" and all listed as "Male, Age 39" in their profiles, are spambots.  Don't know if you have the power to delete them, but you might save a lot of mopping up down the road if you can.  I'm a web admin elsewhere on the web, and am familiar with these.  Also, if you want to pass this along:  threads that were inactive for years, and are now empty, are spam magnets.  If they are thinned a bit, or just locked, it will save some grief.  Or we can keep waiting for that magical day that Latin American Literature and Pets comes back to glorious life.  "My dog has no nose..."
