The Javelinas O-fer Continues

Made it to our first Arizona Fall League game yesterday, in time to see the team on which the Phillies play (Peoria Javelinas) drop to 0-5 despite holding a lead for most of the game.

I hadn’t previously seen the official roster, but indeed the Phils have four pitchers representing the club: Crouse, Jones, McArthur, and Miller. James McArthur started the game yesterday and pitched well, going 4.0 innings and allowing just one hit and one earned run, with 6 Ks and 2 BBs. The same could not be said for Erik Miller, who was tagged for a bomb to center field and couldn’t seem to get anyone out.

It was a good day at the plate for the Phils’ two position players, Bryson Stott (SS) and Logan O’Hoppe (C). Stott, batting third, singled and walked twice in 5 plate appearances. His OPS of 1.317 leads the club and is sixth in the league.

Logan O’Hoppe, who had been struggling with the bat despite wearing Chase Utley’s #26, had a breakout game with two singles, a double, and 3 RBI.

    “… couldn’t seem to get anybody out, ….” A future Phillies starter for sure. I remember the days when the Phillies had an enviable farm system. Now, it just seems that any Phillies minor league player who does well is traded to another team for a number of mediocre players. I’m a Phillies fan, but I haven’t noticed any systemic front office moves to improve the team or the farm system pipe-line.
