“Colleges can certainly restrict access to the Phillies, and that’s going to happen in the Northwest”

Kyle Scott - February 20, 2014

Aaron Fitt of Baseball America was on 97.5 The Fanatic today to discuss his report that the Phillies are snitching jackasses:

“I do think that colleges can certainly restrict access to the Phillies, and that’s going to happen in the Northwest— Oregon State and Washington State. There’s no way Phillies scouts are gonna get to talk to their players and do home visits and judge signability and all those things scouts are asked to do as part of their job description. I wouldn’t be surprised if a lot of other college programs followed suit.”

GREAT! Not like the Phillies need to rebuild a farm system or anything.

    Well someone needs to get fired for this before the schools really decide to cut them out…

    Whatever. No kid’s family is closing the door on a major league scout no matter what any school dictates.

      Because, you know, the Phillies are the only MLB org. with scouts

        Great point except the Phillies have a long tradition of shitty scouting, which means they’re often the only one knocking on some of these loser’s doors. Fuckstick.

    While it certainly shows the sniveling little bitch we all know RAJ to be, it’s not like the northwest has produced any quality for our farm system. Adam Eaton (P), anyone?

      Christina (or should I call you Lefty?) –

      Last year’s 2nd round draft pick for the Phils, Travis Mattair, is from Washington state.

      Kyle Kendrick is from Washington state, also, and Mike Stutes went to then national champ Oregon State.

      And, hey, where would the organization be without those three…..?

    Farm system doesn’t need to be rebuilt. Phillies farm system is decent to say the least. After this draft they should be in the 10-12 range.

            You referenced a bleacher report article… Are you really this fucking stupid? Also… They just released an updated I saw whiles watching and it has them 18. Wtf could they have done in 2 mints to jump 9 spots.

            Sounds like a reputable ranking site. Fucking idiot. Try referencing legit sites like BA or someone with cred like Keith Law.

    The Phils farm system is ranked 14th. They were ranked 27th last year. Their last draft was one of the best in the majors, according to experts.

      Exactly… Couple that with the 7th pick this year and subsequent rounds they should improve.

    This would be an excellent opportunity for Montgomery and the shadowy council that owns the Phillies to do the inevitable and fire RAJ earlier than they planned without it looking like they’re jumping the gun.
