Phillies Scouting Information Was Posted on Reddit

via Reddit (u/UngThug)

Well, this is interesting.

On the MLB Reddit page, a user named “UngThug” made a post titled “the Phillies insider scout information,” featuring a picture of a whiteboard inside Citizens Bank Park. That whiteboard contained detailed bullet points on the Atlanta Braves, whom the Phils opened the season with last week.

Here’s the unedited photo that was uploaded:

If you open the photo and zoom, you can discern what’s written on the board, though some stuff is harder to read, especially the entries on the far right.

Among the blurbs, after the jump:

Josh Donaldson

  • doesn’t move well
  • plays deep, poor reaction on BHB
  • can bunt on him!
  • erratic thrower at times
  • blocks base on tags!

Jesse Biddle

  • yips
  • put the ball in his hands, force him to pick to 1B

Nick Markakis

  • below average arm
  • slow attack – release
  • must be aggressive
  • best throws are to 2B from right field and wall

It’s intriguing stuff. There’s scouting info on the Braves’ entire starting lineup in there.

As far as the photo’s source, there’s a comment further down the page that reads:

During the tours of the park you walk right past this board (and they even stop to point it out) I just finished the tour and I guess someone snapped a pic of it

Yeah, that has to be what happened here. I guess they’ll adjust the tour moving forward so it doesn’t happen again.

The Union had a related situation a few years ago, when a fan took a picture of a similar whiteboard containing player-personnel information. The fan simply walked over to a window and snapped a photo from outside of the team’s training complex, as the shades weren’t pulled down at the time:

I’ve got the unedited photo somewhere on my desktop computer, but this was the edited jawn we used at Philly Voice.

Either way, there’s some inside Phillies scouting info for you.

  1. I’m gonna be doing orthodox training on this video, and it’s gonna be really barbaric and really insane. Like REALLY grueling frickin crazy, barbaric, dungeon slayer Dorian Yates style shit. It’s gonna be extreme. It’s gonna be like fuckin throwing bricks and shit, and, it has to do with picking up bulldozers and shit, and balls and everything.

  2. Dear Kevy,

    How about the scouting report on Kyle Scott Laskowski?
    Does it contain any information on paying low wages, offering no benefits etc?

    Katey D

    1. Why would a blogger get benefits? What are the job hazards? Carpal Tunnel and Bed Sores?

      I am with Kyle- no benefits. Like servers who want tips when they offer poor service. Ya right.

        1. Right on Brother.

          We take the easy/lazy way in life and act like those that got educations are the stupid ones!

          The cats that know how life works “operate” bulldozers.

    2. Who is Kate Devlin and why are there so many fake comments using her name? I googled the name and nothing jumps out. I want to understand the joke…

      1. The joke is subtle, which makes it even funnier. It’s just mundane, real person comments while everybody else in the comments section, myself included, is a douche bag.

  3. Reddit used to be cool before it got shilled to the core.

    Who is the rat?

  4. The Man Getter is staying single for life baby yeah … I’m a freak I’m like uh Z-Y-Z-Z the Internet celebrity bodybuilder, the Greek god the Zeus thuh thuh unbelievable Apollo Creed uh Apollo, Achilles heels guess what I’m like Troy I’m a Greek GOD bay-bee and I don’t give a fuck. I go from woman to woman to woman to woman cause I’m a womanizer! Gwee hee hee!

  5. I don’t understand why someone would want to take a picture of that and post it for others to see. Seriously, get a life …
