If the Harper/Kimbrel/Keuchel story from earlier didn’t satisfy your needs for wild baseball-related speculation, you’re in luck because we have more “throw some shit against the wall and see if it sticks” hot stove action tonight.

This time it’s Jon Heyman checking in with “news” on Mike Trout.



Mike Trout + Phillies = RTs.
All day, baby. All. Day.

You mean to tell me the Phillies would try to pursue arguably the world’s greatest living baseball player in the event he becomes a free agent. You don’t say?

It’s somewhat interesting that Heyman says that he hears Trout doing an extension with the Angels is “unlikely.” I guess. But with two generational free agent talents currently collecting dust on the open market this winter, I wouldn’t get my hopes up watching the Trout developments unfold.* There’s a loooong way to go before that decision is finalized.

      1. well well well, as was i, the quintessential stud muffin, Joel “hotter than a 15 year old girl in a field hockey skirt”….Gertner

        1. You two sound like total losers. Cuz shoots huge loads on models and you two dingleberries are beating off to memories of nobody local wrestlers. Cuz is 9 inches soft and is number one in the ratings. Everyone loves the cuz.

    1. I love these rumors the Phillies keep floating about star players because they are close to closing the deal on two big named free agents since they have more money than God to spend and there being no real competitive market out there for either guy.

      As one baseball source said, “Harper and Machado want to spend ten years in Philadelphia.” Granted Trout grew up halfway between here and New York, so he won’t come here. But by the time he hits free agency, his boyfriend Harper will be roaming a dugout as a back up in New York, so maybe Trout will want to come here.

      Regardless, that means waiting two whole more seasons before making a small splash in free agency even if it doesn’t shake out. Great off season, Phils.

      1. “Granted Trout grew up halfway between here and New York”

        Haha what? He was born in Vineland and grew up in the Vineland/Milville area. That’s in south Jersey. South of Philadelphia and not near New York. Good try, though.

  1. “Phillies interested in [Star player every team would be interested in]”

    Let’s write an article. You can probably make a template for this, ease of use.

    Another template titled “Phillies miss out on [Star player every team would be interested in]”

  2. Kinda getting tired of this nonsense Phillies keep floating about star players when they can’t even close the deal on two big named free agents despite having more money than God to spend and there being no real competitive market out there for either guy.

    As one baseball source said, “neither Harper or Machado wants to spend ten years in Philadelphia.” Granted Trout grew up halfway between here and New York, so maybe he’ll come here. But by the time he hits free agency, his boyfriend Wentz will be roaming a sideline as a back up in Buffalo, so maybe Trout won’t want to come here.

    Regardless, that means waiting two whole more seasons before making a big splash in free agency even if it does shake out. Some off season, Phils.

  3. I’d sell my kidney to have Trout here on the Phils. Dude is a real Philly guy, unlike pretty boy Harper and Manny “I don’t hustle” Machado.
