A few seconds of research of Tommy Joseph's season in LHV shows he is not ready. Hitting barely above .200 with well below-average defensive performance. He had at least 6 passed balls and has numerous throwing errors. He is not an acceptable 2013 option.


The question: how many losing seasons do you want to endure before a rebuild is complete? If you sell now you minimize rebuild time. If you wait until your older pieces to have no value, get ready for a long haul of bad, considering how little the Phils really have in their system. Agree that Hamels, Kendrick, some of the young relievers and Galvis and Ruf are keepers...otherwise take calls on everybody. Is there anyone really willing to take Howard even if the Phils eat half his pay?

I really don't think trading Chooch would be a good idea.

Fans and media in the Philadelphia area don't remember 2007 very well. The core of this team has been here since then. They were 7 games out of first place with 17 games to play. They achieved what was thought the impossible that year and in 2008 they won it all. Are Ryan Howard, Chase Utley and Jimmy Rollins aging veterans, yes they are, but when healthy they can carry a team to great heights...Right now they are 5.5 games out of first place, I know we aren't used to seeing them out of first place, however give them a chance to completely heal and jell as a team and watch how fast they catch up....

Yes let's blow this thing up when we are only 5.5 games back. Great idea. Oh and TJ is the catcher of the future? Do you even watch baseball? What You just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I've ever heard. At no point during your rambling, incoherent, responce were you close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone on Facebook is now dumber for having read this. I award you no points. May god have mercy on your soul.
