Is Maikel Franco Becoming the New Domonic Brown?

Is Maikel Franco Becoming the New Domonic Brown?

Many Philadelphia Phillies fans were expecting to witness the struggles of a young baseball team, but they weren’t expecting such a dark and disappointing stretch on the long road of rebuilding. The much-needed rebuild is not going as planned, and that is trouble for Philadelphia fans. Philadelphia is a city based around sports. If our sports teams struggle, then so do we. Go to a bar in our city and expect to talk about the Eagles, the Phillies, the Process,…

The Phillies Learned to do Baseball Good

The Phillies Learned to do Baseball Good

An entire week went by without a new Phillie Phan Addict blog post. I know it was hard to deal with, but I was busy getting ready for my sister’s wedding. Congratulations Amy and Josh! (This is really just a test to see if my sister reads these posts.) Looking back, I didn’t actually do much to get ready for the wedding and I’m sure I could have squeezed in a post or two, but it was a good chance…

The Impossible just Happened; The Phillies Won!

The Impossible just Happened; The Phillies Won!

May 25th, 2017 marks a very important day for the Philadelphia Phillies. What happened? Well, they finally won a damn game. This marks the first win since last Friday’s game against the Pittsburg Pirates and only the fifth win in the entire month of May. Now you might understand why I was so frustrated with the losses. Winning five out of 22 games in May is not a good sign of what’s to come later in the season. Vince Velasquez…

What’s the Deal with Maikel Franco?

What’s the Deal with Maikel Franco?

I’ve been way too supportive when it comes to third baseman Maikel Franco. I have had a soft spot for him since his 2015 season when I picked him up in fantasy baseball. For reference, in 2015 Franco hit .280 and showed off his power with 14 home runs. He was great for the young, rebuilding Phillies, and he was great for my fantasy team considering I picked him up for nothing. Flash forward to 2017. With just about half…

Putting Crying Jordan to Good Use

Putting Crying Jordan to Good Use

Life keeps getting even worse for diehard Phillies fans. Not that we expected much this season, but with yesterday’s 1-0 loss against the Pittsburg Pirates, the Phillies have lost seven straight series for the first time in 11 years. This is a rough stretch for the Phillies, and I don’t think it’s going to get much better anytime soon. The Phillies just don’t have the talent to win games right now. It’s sad, but it’s the truth. Aaron Atherr and…

Some News, and the Phillies Fight for Last Place

Some News, and the Phillies Fight for Last Place

We have arrived. It is the stretch of the Phillies season where they start falling into their deserved place. That place is called last place, and we are nearly there. We are battling with the Miami Marlins for last place in the division, and soon we could be falling into last place in the overall MLB standings. Right now, our only competition is the Marlins, and the San Diego Padres who have 15 wins compared to our 14, but have…

Pete Mackanin Contract; Reusing an Old Photoshop

Pete Mackanin Contract; Reusing an Old Photoshop

I, like many other vocal Phillies fans on the internet, don’t know how to feel about Pete Mackanin’s new contract. If you haven’t heard, Mackanin has signed a two-year contract though 2018, and has a club option for 2019. Here is the official Phillies twitter announcing the news. #Phillies have signed Pete Mackanin to a new two-year contract through 2018 with a club option for 2019. pic.twitter.com/GOkATCTnXA — Phillies (@Phillies) May 11, 2017 Is Mackanin the manager who can bring…
