Even entering June 8th, they were five games over .500, right in the thick of the AL East race and the AL Wild Card race.While the Orioles were playing well, the computers and projection systems weren’t buying it, and waited for the Orioles to regress.

Philadelphia Phillies trade rumors: Pat Neshek edition

When you think of Pat Neshek, you don’t think of someone who would be leading the entire MLB in ERA at a 0.64 mark. While there’s no doubting the Philadelphia Phillies bullpen has been one of the leaking holes of the team, Neshek has so far proved to be an exemplary free agent signing.

Matt Stairs on the ABCs of Hitting (The B Is Bad)

Matt Stairs loves to teach hitting, and he has plenty of teaching to do. The 49-year-old former slugger is in his first season as Philadelphia’s hitting coach, and given the youthfulness of the Phillies lineup, he’s got his hands full. Raw talent dots the roster, but that’s essentially what it is. Finished products are in short supply. Stairs isn’t heavy-handed with his...
