  1. I read several articles covering that Sports Illustrated article on the Phillies Dalton Gang. Headed by by Turk Farrell and made up of other pitchers from the staff, Jim Meyer was one, Don Caldwell was one for a short time. They were imfamous stay out all night, beat up people in the bar, just rip roaring mean drunks who were all tougher than hell. Farrell was the leader of the gang.

    Other than Sheets and Vaughn who are other recent ones?  I can't think of any.

    There was that Water Polo guy, Sam Abbott. He was a 1Bman.  Zangari. Jameson Fisher. Tyler Osik,  I guess Fisher played some outfield, but the others were just 1Bmen. 


  3. Garver had a huge year last year. Kepler seems to be regressing with the bat and now he is hurt I think. They let Schoop and Cron go, Tigers picked them up and Schoop has helped them a lot. Rosario has not taken the next step up, seems to have hit his level.

    Just read somewhere that Puig and Holt are the last two remaining top 50 free agents.  I hope were in on them...particularly Holt.  He would probably be handy and cheap.  As I have mention before...Puig is interesting at a price and see if our Cuban clique can keep him in line.  I know the arguments against Puig but just wondering if we could catch lightning in a bottle for cheap.

    One would think the staff talked to Jose and some of the other Cubans on the team for their input on Puig. Maybe it was a resounding no.

    Question.

    I know we will lose our 2nd round pick if we sign Wheeler or any of these other guys that get a QO.  But do we lose pool money as well?

    Thanks I'll hang up.

    The post right before yours, last sentence, answers that as affirmative.
