Freaking Phillies eh, of all teams?

This Phillies team seems to be run really well, management wise.

They seem to be slowly becoming The New England Patriots of MLB.

A well run team that major stars take less money so they can play for them. Well Lee is the only player so far that has done that isn't he?

They just have to win another championship or two and they will be known as The Patsies of MLB.

Being a Mets fan, I can't help to tip my cap to The Phillies organization to what they've done with that pitching rotation. They will be an interesting team to watch next season. They get their hitting in order and it's not only The Mets, Braves and Nationals that will have to look it...It will be every team in the NL AND AL.

I normally root against dynasty teams but the Phils were so pathetic for their first 100 years of existence that it's almost as though this is karmic payback. This really isn't far removed from the LA Clippers running roughshod over the NBA in 2060.

That said, there's still a season to play. Let's wait and see before we hand over the World Series crown just yet.

Yeah you're right.

BTW, surprise, surprise, I'm picking The New York Mets to win next year's World Series.

For those that know me, I know that pick came right out of left field.

Not sure which team will come out of The American League yet though. I still have to figure that one out.

The rumor has Fat Joe going to the Red Sox.

Shit, I hope not.

Although, if they pick up Fat Joe, that would probably mean that Dice K's being shipped out of town, so that's a bonus.

I cant be mad at Lee for going to Philly, he liked it there and wanted to go back.

It amazed me how this came out of nowhere though, this entire off season there was never a mention of Philly even being involved, and they win him back.

The Philly's may have a great pitching staff, but they better hope that they don't have a fluke like what happened to the Cubs in 2004 when Wood and Prior both went down early, and they were the anchors to a supposedly great Cubs pitching rotation as well

 few baseball reporters tweeted that the Phillies may be going after Pedro Martinez for the 5th slot.

I know the cliche is that you can never have enough pitching, but I would be so tempted to float Hamels out there and see what kind of package you could get for him. If anything is going to sink the Phillies in '11, it's going to have to be the starters' arms exploding or lack of depth among position players.

Is Philly really a good spot for a guy like Greinke?

When I heard about the deal this morning I thought to myself "I wonder who wants out?" thinking that behind the scenes one of the starters wanted out and they would in turn deal a pitcher for a bat.

The Royals(Despite reports claiming they're interested in trade offers), DO NOT want to trade Greinke. Call me foolsih for this, but the Royals will be very nasty in another year or 3, they're developing a nice young team...trust me, they're not the laughingstock they once were. i heard a few guys on the radio last night(while talking about greinke), saying the Royals in 2-3 years, wiill probably be the best team in the division/AL.

Fluke win....it'll probably be another 50+ yrs before they win another? I could be wrong.

I bet Barry Bonds is pissed huh? good, serves that selfish fucker right not to get a ring. If there's anyone who doesnt deserve one, it's him.
