2017 Series Discussion: H&H w/ Red Sox

2017 Series Discussion: H&H w/ Red Sox

Postby BigEd76 » Sun Jun 11, 2017 9:09 pm

Time for our biennial "rivalry" with Boston, and this will likely be another slaughter. The Phils are making their 10th regular season visit to Fenway Park, where they haven't won a series since their third visit back in 1999, and facing Porcello and Price, it won't happen this year either. Back in Philly, we'll see 2012 1st-round pick Brian Johnson make his 5th career MLB start, then major offseason acquisition Chris Sale (CWS) gets a second opportunity to beat the Phils after last September's start didn't go so well. The Sawx sit in 2nd place behind the Yanks in a competitive East division, which they won last year before getting swept in the ALDS by Cleveland. Besides Sale, the team added Mitch Moreland (TEX), Tyler Thornburg (MIL) and Blaine Boyer (MIL). Gone from last year are David Ortiz (retired), Clay Buchholz (PHI), Koji Uehara (CHC), Yoan Moncada (CWS), Brad Ziegler (MIA), Junichi Tazawa (MIA), Aaron Hill (SF), Ryan Hanigan (COL), Travis Shaw (MIL) and Bryan Holaday (DET). Wednesday night is an MLB Network tote bag giveaway for fans 15+. Win a game.

Franco over his last 14 games...

.268/.305/.375

which is sadly an improvement over his season line of:

.227/.280/.360

happy ruben amaro day
I confess that I have never seen Markelle Fultz play a basketball game and I was not at his 76ers workout Saturday in Camden
