Deconstructing The Phillies: Corner Infield

October 25th, 2014 by Mike H. | Comments Off on Deconstructing The Phillies: Corner Infield | Filed in Baseball, Phillies

Next up in the series is the corner infield positions. What should the Phillies do at the hot corner? Can the Phillies do anything with Ryan Howard? There’s definitely depth at the major league level, but who is the right man for the job? I’m still playing GM and keeping a running tally of the moves and roster spots being taken both in my vision and my counterpart’s. If you’re even remotely intrigued and/or agree with my overhaul, click past the jump to see where I’m going this week. (more…)

Time To Prove His Werth During National Concern

April 12th, 2011 by Mike H. | Comments Off on Time To Prove His Werth During National Concern | Filed in General

Zimmerman is out. LaRoche is questionable. Can Werth pick up the slack?

As the Phillies enter game one of their three game series with the Nationals, news out of the nation’s capital doesn’t look good. Well, for the Nationals that is. Yesterday, the Nationals placed 3B Ryan Zimmerman on the 15-day DL with a slight abdominal strain. Zimmerman has been dealing with the strain since spring training. To make matters worse, 1B Adam LaRoche is questionable for tonight’s game with a slight labrum tear in his shoulder and left Sunday’s game against the Mets with a slight groin strain. While the groin strain isn’t believed to affect LaRoche too much if he does play, I would definitely think the shoulder injury will affect his hitting. So the Nationals are already down Zimmerman, losing LaRoche would definitely impede their ability to compete with Phillies. Looks like even more pressure will be on “premeire” off season acquisition Jayson Werth to succeed against the Phillies.
