Well, the Phillies optioned LHP Joe Savery to the Lehigh Valley Iron Pigs.
Earlier today, our Rich Wilkins called for a move – SOMETHING to change the dynamic of this incredibly boring, unentertaining team. So who is it, and why can't the announce it now? Some possibilities:
I would love the move to be something significant, but Jake Diekman is probably it. I would really enjoy to see what he can offer the Phillies as he was very impressive in Spring Training, but getting an out or two now and then is not what totally ails the Phillies. Many of the bullpen blow-ups came after failed opportunities and after the Phillies' offense shut down.
