Jean Segura Hurt Himself While – Get This – Hustling to First Base

Kevin Kinkead - September 19, 2019

You can’t make this shit up.

Jean Segura had to come out of today’s Phils/Braves game when he injured his hamstring running to first base.

On the play in question, he hit a floaty line drive just over Ozzie Albies, which resulted in Segura getting out of the box late. While legging out the single, he tweaked the hammy:

You Could Be The Phillies’ Next Quantitative Analyst

Coggin Toboggan - September 19, 2019

Looking for a job? Ever think to yourself, “boy, I’d love to calculate decades of launch angles for extended spring training minor leaguers who never have a shot at touching the majors and input them into a system that nobody will care about” and not have the desire to then crush your skull with an axe handle? Well then the Phillies want YOU to be their next quantitative analyst to shape the direction of a major league franchise with your trusty slide ruler and the power of statistics.

Posted a week ago on LinkedIn , the Phillies are desperate to bring in another nerd to their stable to spend countless hours inputing millions of pieces of data to ultimately help identify the best trade candidates Matt Klentak can fail at landing to improve his ball club.

Frankly, it sounds like a real “home run” of an opportunity. Let’s see what the Phillies are looking for in a candidate after the jump.

Corey Dickerson Will Miss Rest of Season With Broken Foot

Kevin Kinkead - September 17, 2019

Let’s check in on the Phillies.

Well, they’re five games out of the second wild card spot and now Corey Dickerson is done:

Dickerson had eight RBI in his last five games, which took him up to September 12th. He was hitting .279 with a .877 OPS this month.

The Phillies begin an 11-game road swing tonight in Atlanta, then finish up with three at home against the Marlins. What a downer of a season.

Dallas Keuchel Thinks Phillies’ Front Office Might be “Second Guessing Themselves”

Kevin Kinkead - September 12, 2019

Anybody still watching the Phillies?

They’re 75-70, still two games out of the final Wild Card spot and facing a schedule that includes a three game series in Atlanta and four five game series in Washington.

Gabe Kapler’s team lost 3-1 last night at home as Dallas Keuchel went six innings, allowing one earned run with eight strikeouts and three walks. Keuchel was a free agent to begin the season and somebody the Phils could have gone out and snagged, but they didn’t, and he instead signed a one year deal with the Braves worth $13 million.

After the game, Keuchel was asked about free agency and the Phillies’ non-approach, saying the following:

John Boruk Started a Conservative Sports+Politics Website Called “Jock Smack”

Kevin Kinkead - September 11, 2019

Today a Crossing Broad reader pointed out that former NBC Sports Philadelphia anchor John Boruk deleted three years worth of tweets from his personal page.

Why? Well, he did catch flak for a couple of opinions in recent years, one specifically where he claimed that he didn’t want his son wearing a pink basketball jersey. Boruk dropped some Colin Kaepernick tweets as well, and even wrote in his bio that he was a conservative, which is like putting a massive target on your back since I’d estimate that some 70-75% of Philadelphia sports media members lean left.

Anyway, Boruk started a new website called Jock Smack, which is branded as “The Intersection of Sports and Politics.” Looks like he began this thing in the summer and I didn’t even notice. Here’s a snippet from the “about” section:

Here is Scott Kingery’s Inside-the-Park Home Run

Bob Wankel - September 10, 2019

The Phillies jumped out to an early first inning lead tonight thanks to homers by J.T. Realmuto, Bryce Harper, and Corey Dickerson. They held a 4-0 lead for all of one full inning as the Braves tied the game in the top of the third.

Scott Kingery then broke that tie in the bottom half of the frame with this inside-the-park homer. All hustle right here:

It was the Phillies’ first inside-the-park homer since late in the 2017 season.
