    Reading about Young Kingery is making me all giddy. Might see him sooner than later this year too.

    From the best site for local/national sports coverage anywhere:

    Here's the thing lost in the service-time banter: The Phillies can have Kingery in the majors for almost all of the season and still delay his free agency until after the 2024 season. A year of service time is 172 days. Major League Baseball has elongated the 2018 schedule; the Phillies will play their 162-game season in 186 days. Kingery, in theory, could come to the majors on April 13 — for the Phillies' 13th game of the season. He would then spend 171 days in the majors, one day shy of a full year of service time.

    There are potential barriers to that. For one, the players' union could have a strong objection to a club manipulating the service-time rules in such an obvious manner. Kingery, who has said all of the right things this spring about his financial future, could file a grievance against the Phillies. (Maikel Franco, whose free-agent clock was delayed by a full year because he was two days short of 172, did that.)

    But those negative vibes are not apparent.

    The Phillies have a blueprint from Kapler's previous employer, the Los Angeles Dodgers, who summoned top prospect Cody Bellinger last April 25 because of injuries at the major-league level. Bellinger stuck for the season. He played a bunch of left field before assuming his natural position, first base. He accrued 160 days of service time. Bellinger and Kingery are friends; they attended rival high schools in the Phoenix area.

    There are other scenarios to make everyone whole: The Tampa Bay Rays delayed Evan Longoria's major-league debut in 2008 by 13 days but then signed him to a six-year contract just six games into his career. That deal guaranteed Longoria $17.5 million but was worth up to $44.5 million. The two sides later agreed to another extension, before the first deal expired.

    That initial contract was struck in 2008, when pre-arb deals gained popularity across the game. There are other examples of players with less than a year of service time who signed long-term extensions — Tim Anderson, Salvador Perez, Matt Moore and Jonathan Singleton — but they have become less prevalent in recent years. The current tension between the league and players' union could discourage Kingery's camp from exploring a similar pact. To be clear, this is a hypothetical, and it is not known whether such an idea has even been broached.

    “I understand, you have the business side of it, how it works where I get an extra year of control,” Kingery said. “I understand all that stuff.”

    This stupid weather. We lost power for about 12 hours over the weekend and know people who still don't have power. I had a bunch of Cypress trees knocked over in my backyard that was a pain in the ass to deal with. My work was out of  power until like 2 today. Now this nonsense this week? Fuck this.

    Yeah, I'm seeing 3" via the Weather Underground app.

    I figure Action News would rather err on the side of disaster for both ratings, and the viewer is prepared for the worst so they don't want to murder Ceicily Tynan for being wrong if shit hits the fan. Don't need the natives plowing down City Line right into their studio...

    was in philly for the spoon show at the tla.  That got done a little after 11.  It was raining bu the time i got out philly was wet by the time i got to 95 and the blue route it started too snow pretty bad and kinda hard to see the road.  Especially the side streets once i got off the blue route.  Wasn't really slippery though just wet.  Sure that will change by tomorrow morning.  Heard pretty much all of philly is shut down.

    Ordered the whole bird with two biscuits and a side (fries) was about $22. Fried chicken was on point, but I don't think you can fuck up fried chicken. Biscuits were tiny but super delicious, fries portion seemed pretty small for serving at least two people.

    I think we've talked about this before - CFC isn't $22 and it's just as good.

    I have strong fried chicken opinions. One, it shouldn’t be ordered by the whole or half bird. By the number of pieces only. Federal donuts realized this and at least renamed how they have things listed on the menu.

    Also, while I agree fried chicken can be easy, hipsters are kinda killing it. So many places opening up claiming to have great chicken and the batter is either bland or it’s cooked to shit.

    Fed nuts gets a pass in my mind because they are the OG and have the seasonings. Their chili glaze is amazing. That said, give me 3 pieces and a beef patty from crown fried chicken over the majority of hipster stuff any day. Somehow coco bread hasn’t made its way to philly to go with beef patties though.

    KFC, Popeyes and bo jangles...you can’t go wrong 

    Chicken, mashed potatoes, Mac and cheese and beef patties from anything along the lines of crown or any kennedy’s will beat 99.99% of new chicke spots 

    And speaking of beef patties, I saw a sign in a store front for a Jamaican bakery coming soon in the Italian market recently.
