New Team in WBC? Get Lost!

The Chinese Taipei team is out of the World Baseball Classic. Chinese Taipei was voted out of the WBC this week by confused phans who didn't grasp why Taiwan, just couldn't go by the name Taiwan in the world of sports. To avoid confusion and fan unrest, WBC officials and Phillies blog magnates have found a new team to play in The Classic. Lost Island will field a team for the first time in organized sports. Lost's head coach Jacob will rely on slick fielding Korean import Jin-Soo Kwon, veteran pitcher John Locke, slugging thirdbaseman James "Sawyer" Ford and slugging outfielder Sayid Jarrah to compete with the likes of China, Korea and Japan in the Group A bracket. Lost Island's Department of Heuristics And Research on Material Applications is said to have played a major role it getting this team its place in the WBC line up.

Lost Island will make history in multiple ways, other than being the first replacement team. Speedy infielder Kate Austen is slated to be the first female to play in a WBC game. Kate is rumored to be in the very early stages of pregnancy with a teammate's child, but it won't stop her from playing. Relief pitcher Jack Shephard has been linked to Austen most recently. The ageless wonder, Richard Alpert, acts as coach, scout and firstbaseman for the team. He's the only WBC player pulling triple duties. The Lost Island team's batboy, Aaron Littleton, is four-years-old. Littleton will be the youngest batboy in this year's WBC.

Hitting coach Christian Shepard, Jack's father, is confident that Lost Island's bats will prove to be their team's strong point. Christian claims that Lost Island will be using bats made out of a coffin he once inhabited (don't ask), and that will prove deadly for the opposition. Some media sources and internet bloggers have suspected an odd connection between Christian and team manager Jacob. Details on that are purely speculative, however.

Baseball experts are not giving Lost Island much of a chance this year, but starting catcher Hugo Reyes feels differently. "Dude, we definitely got, like, a shot", Reyes said. Starting pitcher Desmond Hume said this about Lost Island's squad, "It's a grand old team, and there's going to be a show, brotha!" "Sawyer" Ford had this to say when asked if Lost Island stood a chance: "What do think I'm gonna say, Hoss?" Point taken, Sawyer. Female viewers may not appreciate it, but hopefully, Sawyer can keep his jersey on long enough to win some baseball.

Frosty Phillies Favorites: 2021 Edition w/ DJ Stewart

Season's greetings to all of you! It's that time of the year to celebrate and enjoy the holiday season. Every year at Christmas time, I survey a group of Phillies prospects about what they get excited for during the holidays.  This year, we focus on just one up and coming player, corner infielder DJ Stewart. The 22-year-old righty batter had a solid season in 2021. In 94 games combined with Class A Clearwater and Class A Advanced Jersey Shore, Stewart notched a .265 batting average with 14 home runs, 42 RBI and five stolen bases.  Recently, I talked with DJ to gain his feedback on all of his holiday favorites. Read ahead for that interview... -What's your favorite Christmas movie? My favorite is This Christmas.  My Mother and I would watch it together every Christmas, so it just stuck with me. -What is your favorite Christmas song and which version is best? This Christmas by Chris Brown.  It's the final song of my favorite Christmas movie. -What's your favorit

Pipkin- Blue Christmas by Elvis.  It's just unbeatable.   Miller- I don't like Christmas music, to be honest. Kroon- I am a big fan of the original Jingle Bells. It reminds me of being a kid again.

Biddle slated to make Reading return on Saturday

Jesse Biddle, image- Jay Floyd After a miserable stretch of starts in June, lefty pitcher Jesse Biddle was placed on Double-A Reading's temporary inactive list. On Saturday, he'll make his long awaited return to the FirstEnergy Stadium mound when he starts the first game of the Fightins' scheduled double header against Binghamton. The 22-year-old posted a 0-4 record with a 12.64 ERA in four June starts. It was clear that there was something quite wrong with Biddle, who had missed a start in late May after being pelted with hail and suffering a concussion. A mixture of feelings including confusion and anger were firmly settling in while Biddle's efforts on the mound were not. The Phils saw a need for the Philadelphia native and Germantown Friends School product to take a break. Exams discovered lasting impact on Biddle stemming from the concussion and time off was required. "For me it was an important time not only to take a mental break and to go down
