Phillies Interviewed Dusty Baker a Second Time, Showalter Scheduled for Today, Girardi Monday

Russ Joy - October 18, 2019

The Phillies really want us to hate them, don’t they? As an admittedly fallen-away Phillies fan, I asked Bob and Anthony on Crossing Broadcast whether the names Dusty Baker, Buck Showalter, and Joe Girardi might’ve been  a diversion, an elaborate bait-and-switch of sorts, while John Middleton scoured major league coaching staffs for a young bench coach or a minor league manager. They sighed and delivered a deadpan, “No.” And so it should come as no shock that the Phillies have already initiated Round 2 of “Which retread will restore our mediocre team to slightly-above mediocrity 2020”.

That’s because -following a previous report from the Inquirer’s Matt Breen– Todd Zolecki dropped a bit of a managerial search bombshell on Thursday evening:

Bryce Harper Thanks Fans, Claims “We Will Reign Again”

Russ Joy - September 29, 2019

Sunday marked the Phillies’ 162nd game of the season, one that -quite frankly- couldn’t come quickly enough. Would it be Gabe Kapler’s final game as the manager? Could Matt Klentak and Andy MacPhail be shown the door by owner John Middleton? For a moment before the game, none of that mattered. The team’s massive free agent signing took to the mic and delivered a heartfelt message to those in attendance:

Harper: Welcome to today’s game. From myself and my teammates, just wanted to tell you guys thank you for all your support this year. I know it didn’t go as planned, but I believe in this organization. I believe in this city. And we will reign again. On a personal level, I just wanna say thank you so much for inviting me and my family into this city. It’s been an incredible year for myself… coming to a city that I didn’t really know anything about, but I just want to say thank you so much. You guys have made this year so good. Thank you. See you guys next year.

The bolded line is my own emphasis and I think it’s worth repeating. “I know it didn’t go as planned, but I believe in this organization.” Well, I guess it’s good someone does. Let the Joe Maddon, Joe Girardi, Dave Dombrowski, trade Rhys Hoskins, Aaron Nola can’t win a big game, etc., debates commence. T-minus 146 days until Grapefruit League play begins.
