The Philadelphia Phillies used to be a force to be reckoned with. “The team to beat” started their historic stretch in 2007, ripping off five straight National League East Division titles which included two trips to the World Series and a championship in 2008.
Players like Jimmy Rollins, Cole Hamels, Chase Utley, and Ryan Howard paved the way to the first championship team since 1980, but that all began to spiral out of control when Howard tore his achilles tendon during the final out of the 2011 NLDS.
Since then, the Phillies have not broken the .500 mark and the players that led the parade down Broad Street have moved on to other teams or left the game for good; the 2017 team is not the team of old. Read the rest of this entry

Sully’ Baseball (Paul Francis Sullivan) hosts a 20 Minute Daily Podcast Every Day – 365 Days a Year – unless its a Leap Year – and then he is going to do another one.
Check out Sully Baseball’s 20 Minute Daily Podcast Right here
WOB Stands For ‘Who Owned Baseball’ It is based on a Daily Look at the best players from the baseball games the day before. It is a great way to look at a League’s Daily MVP.
Our Lead Podcast Personality – Paul Francis Sullivan – (feel free to call him ‘Sully’), keeps a running total for the yearly leaders and we will update the standings here every day.
Agree or Disagree with him on the players he selects – leave him a comment at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow @sullybaseball
P- Lance McCullers (vs. Seattle Mariners): $9,800. McCullers has been on fire recently. Over his last three starts, he has a 1-1 record, 2.70 ERA, and 22 strikeouts in 16.2 innings pitched. In his last time on the mound against the Mariners, he struck out 10 over seven innings.
P- Jerad Eickhoff (vs. New York Mets): $7,800. The Mets offense has struggled with run production all season long. In 18 starts this season, Eickhoff has a 6-10 record, 3.80 ERA, 94 strikeouts, and 29 walks in 109 innings pitched. He doesn’t get great run support, but he is a steal for only $7,800.
Due to the holiday weekend, I will not be posting explanations to all players. If you have a specific questions, you can direct them to my social media, which you can find listed later in the article. Sorry for the inconvenience, but I hope everyone has a great July 4th weekend!
P – Archie Bradley (vs. San Diego Padres): $8,500
P – Jerad Eickhoff (vs. Atlanta Braves): $8,400
P- Jerad Eickhoff (vs. Minnesota Twins): $9,400. All of the top tier pitchers have tough match-ups on Thursday, but Eickhoff has a very favorable matchup. He will be facing the Minnesota Twins, who have scored the fewest runs in the American League this year. So far in 2016, Eickhoff is 4-9, with a 3.49 ERA, 83 hits against, and 73 strikeouts in 85 innings pitched. His record isn’t pretty, but it is more a matter of lack of run support, which shouldn’t be an issue against the Twins.
P- Tim Lincecum (vs. Oakland Athletics): $7,100. Lincecum dominated the A’s in his season debut on Saturday. The A’s offense has really struggled recently, so Lincecum should be able to take care of business again on Thursday. Over the last seven games, the A’s rank 29th in runs, 29th in OBP, and 29th in slugging. This will also be Lincecum’s debut at his home stadium, so the crowd will be behind him, which should help him succeed.

P- Jerad Eickhoff (vs. Toronto Blue Jays): $8,700. Over his last five starts, Eickoff owns a 2.76 ERA. He is facing a struggling Blue Jays’ offense on Monday. Over the last seven games, the Blue Jays are batting only .221. In 12 starts this year, Eickhoff has a 3.68 ERA, 62 strikeouts, and 15 walks in 73.1 innings pitched.
P- Zack Greinke (vs. Los Angeles Dodgers): $11,200. Greinke will be facing his old team on Monday. In only 42 career at bats against Greinke, the Dodgers’ lineup is batting .238, with 9 strikeouts, and a .273 OBP. Over the last seven days, the Los Angeles Dodgers are only batting .208, which is ranked 29th in Major League Baseball.

The Philadelphia should have a payroll of near $110 MIL after Arbitration dollars are handed out next year. Of that money, Ryan Howard and 3 players (Cole Hamels, Cliff Lee and Chase Utley) rake in $49 MIL of the salary on players that no longer play on the club, or in Howard’s case – are very unproductive.
Between the half a dozen Starters or so they have acquired through trades, and their nice young Starter in Aaron Nola, they now have a promising future in the Rotation.
