Let’s see owned baseball on August 2, 2019
Earning Full WOBs:
Javier Báez went 3 for 5 with a homer and 3 RBI and a stolen base to give the Cubs a 6-2 victory over rival Milwaukee.
Nelson Cruz reached base 4 times, including a home run, driving in 5 as the Twins took the 11-9 slug fest with Kansas City.
Eric Lauer allowed just 3 hits, 2 runs and no walks over 6 innings to earn the 5-2 decision for the Padres over the Dodgers.
Lance Lynn struck out 10 Tigers in 7 innings, giving up 1 run as the Rangers hung on for the 5-4 final.
Earning 1/2 WOBs:
Hunter Dozier homered twice but the Royals fell short to the Twins, 11-9.
Dillon Peters entered the game in the first inning and gave the Angels 7 2/3 innings of relief, allowing 3 runs along the way. The damage had already been done as Cleveland won, 7-3.
Roman Quinn reached base 4 times, homered, stole two bases and even pitched 2 innings out of the bullpen. Sadly, he was credited with the loss as a pitcher as the Phillies fell to the White Sox 4-3 in 15 innings.
Alex Young struck out 9 Nationals over 6 innings, allowing just 3 hits and 2 runs. He would be stuck with the hard luck 3-0 decision for Arizona.

TRADE DEADLINE CHAT/Build your system by trading veterans and regroup for 2015.
I have a newsflash for David Montomery (President, part -owner of the Phillies), your fanbase already hates the team right now, and it is not like you won’t spend money on the club in 2015.
The Boston Red Sox were smart enough to realize that 2012 was a lost season. Instead of riding it out, they made huge changes to the roster.
Deals that led to numerous Free Agent signings in that winter, that helped them win the 2013 World Series..
A lot of the trades they did were based on the team dumping payroll, becoming younger, and also not having lengthy contracts plaguing their franchises for many years to come.
The “Phigtins” are 8.5 Games the NL East leading Braves, and 8 behind the playoff bar, but here is the problem…. Read the rest of this entry
The Philadelphia Phillies Players In All Organizational Affiliates, Prospects + Depth Charts (MLB + MiLB) Fall 2013
The Phillies have posted winning records since 2001. While the year may be getting away from them in 2013, there are some extremely encouraging signs for the future.’
Ben Revere was excelling at his position at CF and at the plate before he went down with a season ending injury.
The emergence of Domonic Brown in the 1st half, and 1B/OF Darin Ruf, have given the team a cost conscious alternative to combat huge salaries like Cliff Lee and Ryan Howard, that combine to be over $50 in the next 3 years, the latter, has been injured the most of the last 2 seasons.
However, the team also extended franchise face Chase Utley, for 2 YRs/$25 – 30 MIL – that should see him possibly retire a Phillie.
The club has played much better since Ryne Sandberg assumed the helm as manager.
The question going forward is to what this team will do with Roy Halladay and Carlos Ruiz. Somehow, I think that Ruben Amaro JR, will find a way to re-sign these two guys for a limited years, and possibly incentive laden contracts this coming winter.
Whatever the case, it should be an interesting ride in Philly the next few years.
