Phillies Mailbag: Starting frustration, Nick Williams's trade ideas and more

Phillies Mailbag: Starting frustration, Nick Williams's trade ideas and more

Why, there is a job in this bag! Answering some of Phillies' key questions before the start of the second half:

Q: How big was a mistake that the initial rotation was not improved during the season? I found that they were overwhelmed by Patrick Corbin, but beyond that, Charlie Morton signed a relatively small deal.

– @ dannmaal

I am glad that you mentioned Morton because, why, what season he has. Remember, what was his biggest two-year stretch.

From the 2018 open day, Morton is 25-5 with 2.80 ERA. He met 11.0 battles per nine years and kept a low rate at home. It was an all-10 series on the pitcher that legitimately.

Many teams could have had the last manners at Morton. The rays, which were usually when they wore, looked and gave it a two-year agreement.

I can tell you from my previous dealings with Morton when he was a Phillie briefly that he would not have the most pay day he could have. That is not his personality. He is a keen geek baseball with high-level analytics and is likely to see that Tampa Bay was suitable as nothing.

To what extent must the Phillies get only four starts from Morton before they tear the end of the season and its success thereafter.

Beyond Morton, there was no tone out there this season. The Nationals paid heavily to Corbin, which had been worthwhile so far but they cannot be two or three years from now on. Still, lefty awesome.

The other name attached to the Phillies heading into the season was J.A. Happ, this season was not successful.

The lack of initial soft spotters became undoubtedly ugly for the Phillies. But how much better would they even be with Happ? Won one better?

It would be nice if the Phillies got under-the-radar starting at the pots that they saw something in for a few years or so, that is how deep rosters are built.

Q: If they are so willing to pay the price to start starting as they showed themselves to be there but there is no real help coming in their organization, how do they decide this is fast?

– @ Johnny_2Hats

I'm not sure they are not willing to pay the price. I think they will … for the right man.

Some of these early pitchers are not part of the long-term upgrades available. Madison Bumgarner is a rental. Marcus Stroman is better than what they have but it's a pitcher of no. 3 on a good team. Roark Tanner, Mike Leake … blah. They raise Phillies' 2019 floors but they do not influence the future in a meaningful way.

Robbie Ray is worth trading on two good pieces. It is worth a great salary to make Zack Greinke if the D-Dks choose the way to do so. I think that Texas keeps Minor Minor.

Q: Are the juices in the home just as a result of juice balls, or is it so bad?

– @ zachary_east412

This is so bad, but the main walls are mostly. There are now more people smoking than chemists in the majestic. Guys for the Show is based on huge rates going on even if their order is below average. Can you lose a bat? Can you have a quick high meal to execute a little more than half the time? Way to go, you are on your way.

The 2019 story represents the configuration of events leading to the most sparkling power we have ever seen. I say it is 65 percent of the ball, 20 percent of the lack of order and 15 percent of the launch angle revolution.

Q: Where do the Phillies stand for the production of parts in counting pitchers? And if it's as bad as it feels, what is the explanation?

– @ fanofthegreeser

The Phillies allowed 18 families to run on 0-2 counts from the beginning of 2018, the third largest in the stewards. When your rotation goes to contact more than it ends two counts with a fait strike, this could happen. There was only a poor situation from every passenger starting in the party when they are ahead of the count. Aaron Nola was a different story recently but was guilty in April and May.

Q: It is not seen that there is a spot for Nick Williams in the Poets' yard. Is the good time to trade it, because its bat in AAA?

– @ dlearjet1975

Of course, it is. It is a whole season. Williams needs scenery because this opportunity doesn't come here. Andrew McCutchen will be back in 2020. Jay Bruce is under the 2020 treaty and is probably not going anywhere. I don't have to set out the correct plans.

The Phillies did not play the story of Williams in the right way. It is difficult when this happens to determine whether the staff has failed the expectation or the prospect was not so good. Williams was definitely not productive this season at the league level when he got a chance.

Its trade value is insignificant. He is not giving back a young piece of rotation at this point. Each team knows that the Phillies would like to trade with him and Williams doesn't have a lot of hitter to drive another team to make an irrational offer.
