For all the HRs Dom has hit lately, that one might have come on the most impressive at-bat. Fouled some pitches off and took a couple to stay alive, then drilled a hanger.

Did exactly what every hitter should. He recognized that they weren't going to throw him a fastball so he waited on the breaking ball. Well done

God, I hope so. With the core getting older and older, the team is going to need him to be.

It's not like he's doing this out of nowhere. This was the player he was predicted to be for years in the minors. He was among the top prospects in the league. I don't think he will be hitting homers every game, but I think he will be damn good and we will have one star of the caliber category of Utley, Rollins, and Howard. They obviously need more, but having this guy is at least one thing to look forward to.

Cliff Lee is preparing to be traded again it seems. Unless the Phillies really turn their season around and become a legit contender, it seems they will move him.

Two teams according the the article that will be extremely interested are the Rangers and Baltimore. I have no clue who these teams top prospects are but hopefully if he is moved, they grab a couple. I know the Rangers have Profar actually, but would they include him in a deal for Lee? I'm not too sure.

I want Dylan Bundy from the Orioles. I don't care if that's unrealistic.

Baltimore has Bundy and Gausman two studs. Schoop's Ok too as a secondary piece.

Texas has a lot of high ceiling prospects. I'm not as high on Olt as others are (plus we have some good looking 3B prospects in the system already). Profar is a dream, but with the way he's playing it's highly unlikely he's moved for a 36 year old pitcher.

Hopefully for our sake, it's a buyers market and we can muster up one of those top prospects this organization desperately needs.

Really sucks that we'll probably be sellers again. Say what you will about Paul but the Flyers would never miss the playoffs in back to back years. Amaro and Charlie need to go cause this lineup is definitely under-performing. I realize some of these guys have gotten old and have some injury issues but I still don't believe they are as far gone as their numbers indicate.

If we are going to think about this in a dreamland, I want Manny Machado .

So with this new "steroid" info coming out and the MLB's attempt to suspend players in a "2 for 1" type of manner, Braun should be banned for life (if his first suspension wasn't revoked for a stupid ass reason).

Mayberry with the game winning granny. This team is going to do just enough to keep everyone and suck again next year.

Words cannot describe how bad Bob Davidson is. How he still has a job I'll never know. Yes, I understand the MLB umpire's union is quite strong, and he's a veteran ump, but if you screw up often enough with enough obvious evidence, even as a veteran ump you can get canned, it just doesn't happen that often. And Bob's got quite the history.

Anywho, good to see JMJ take matters into his own hands to make this a bit of a non-issue, even when Tony Bad-start-relief-o tried his best to do the opposite.

It's a hell of a lot easier to make the playoffs in hockey.

Yup, was 4 teams making it in each league vs 8 in each conference.

Granted my phone makes the gif jumpy, but that's normal for the umps to let a player pull himself off the base early to protect himself

The ump claimed Revere wrapped his arms around Dietrich's legs and called the runner at first out for it.

Oh I know but it's also a mind set. There is no way Amaro could possibly think that his additions of of the Youngs, Revere and Adams was enough to turn a .500 team into a playoff team. Bottom line is he didn't do enough and I'm not saying he didn't try to do more but IMO you wouldn't see that from Holmgren.
