    as horrid as some of the Phillies teams have been in my lifetime it's kind of hard to believe that this one is having a month bad or worse than almost every other Phils team during that span.  just ugly.  Franco and Herrera are killing this team offensively.  And man this team gives up a lot of home runs.

    Best thing I did was buy the At-Bat app for a measly $20 - now I can listen to the games at work, or anywhere really. In related news, Juggs, that sounds like jinx talk right there, ya mush.
    I thought so too.....also thought I jinxed them on Sunday with the broom comment. Fun team to watch again. Hope it lasts longer than it did last year
    not a fun team at all. I think they still lose 90 games. only long term pieces are neris and nola (valezquez if they move him to pen). so two bp pieces and no position players. farm system also sucks. fans excited about sweeping marlins and braves are same ones who were excited when eagles beat browns and bears to open their season. philly fans are so dumb
    here it is.  some people are better off not talking baseball

    'fun team to watch'.  were you at an iron pigs game?
    to those of us that know what we're talking about this isn't hard to believe.  
    regardless of sport (but especially baseball) feel free to run stuff by me...I will tell you what's going to happen.  I'm here to help improve philly sport fan knowledge (easiest job ever)
    If your scoring at home, thats 2 replies to his own post.

    Phillies Take Virginia CF Adam Haseley with the 8th Pick

    Mickey Moniak, Cornelius Randolph, Aaron Nola, J.P. Crawford, Shane Watson, Mitch Gueller, Larry Greene Jr., Jesse Biddle, Anthony Hewitt, Zach Collier, Joe Savery, Travis d’Arnaud, Kyle Drabek, Adrian Cardenas, Greg Golson, Cole Hamels, Gavin Floyd. The thing those 17 names have in common is that they were taken in the first round of the draft by the Phillies in the 17 years between when the Phillies selected a hitter out of college (the last was Chase Utley out of UCLA in 2000). In that time period the Phillies have been one of the worst drafting teams in the majors. There are some hits, but a lot of guys who couldn’t hit. In Adam Haseley the Phillies have the guy we always wanted them to take. He combines high level hitting ability in one of the best conferences in college as well as the scouting reports to back it up.

    On the scouting side here is what the internet had to say about him.

    Haseley has a winner’s pedigree, having helped Orlando’s First Academy to a 2014 NHSI title, then keying Virginia’s 2015 College World Series championship with a five-inning start in the CWS Finals. Haseley was considered a bit more of a prospect on the mound out of high school but prefers hitting and has hit his way into the first round as a junior, breaking out with more power than he’s ever shown before. Scouts still peg him as an average power hitter and knock his rotational swing, but his performance has demonstrated improved feel for hitting and an ability to make his average power play. He ranked among the national leaders in slugging, batting, hits and total bases in early May. An above-average hitter, Haseley has shown the ability to hit the ball out to all fields, controls the strike zone and has an advanced approach. He hits plenty of line drives but also has learned to loft the ball, producing more home runs. He’s also an above-average runner underway who grades out as an average defender in center field. Haseley could stick there as a pro but may slide to a corner, where his average, accurate arm could tick up as he gives up pitching. He’s an upper-80s lefthander and tremendous competitor on the mound who is ready to stop pulling double-duty and focus on hitting. Physically and in his overall game, Haseley fits a similar profile as former Expos outfielder Brad Wilkerson.Baseball America


    Haseley is an above average runner with great instincts in center field and he profiles as an above average defender there despite lacking true high end speed. Scouts consider him likely to hit as Haseley has terrific breaking ball recognition, tracks pitches well and has a quick, whippy bat. He’s hitting for an unexpected amount of wrist-driven power this season but scouts are skeptical about its pro ball sustainability.Fangraphs


    Haseley has improved his stock by leaps and bounds with his performance at the plate this year, and he profiles as a true center fielder in pro ball.ESPN


    The Phillies got solid value too with Haseley coming in at 8, 8, and 6 on those respective boards. As for the hitting track record, Haseley had a breakout year in the ACC hitting .390/.491/.659 with 14 HRs, 44 BB, and 21 K in 58 games as a junior. Haseley was a two way player who pitched 65.1 innings this year. If anything, scouts expect him to get better as he no longer has to focus on pitching (by all accounts Haseley dislike pitching). He isn’t a star level player, but he should be a good center fielder (or right fielder if he has to move because of one of the Phillies other outfielders) and he should move fairly quickly. I think Haseley is one of the safer players at the top of the draft and if there is any more upside the Phillies could have gotten themselves a steal.

    anyone here ever head up to MusikFest in Allentown?  Heard a lot of good things about and thinking about heading up to check it out this year. It runs 1st-2nd week of August with a ton of free and ticketed shows.  Just curious if anyone here has been there before.

    Just seemed like in the past few weeks they played a ton of extra inning games and lost all of them.
