The Scoop?

Phillies president Dave Montgomery visited the Reading Phillies clubhouse today in Trenton. Montgomery and Reading manager Steve Roadcap would not confirm the nature of the visit, but with the recent promotion of Yohan Flande to Reading from Clearwater, in addition to the ML Phillies having room due to the injury to Antonio Bastardo, that could make it possible for Reading to be promoting a pitcher. Pitcher Tyson Brummett was used today in relief, after starting 14 games. It is possible that the Brummett move makes room for Flande in the Reading rotation, but would the team president visit the double A affiliate's locker room, with a hush-hush vibe, and not have a reason?


I asked Reading manager Steve Roadcap, from the camera deck during the game, where Kyle Drabek, who did not dress today, might be headed. He looked around sheepishly, either acting as though he didn't hear me exactly or checking for who else might be listening, and would only tell me that Kyle was still there. Expect an announcement about the Major League Phillies' Thursday starter soon.

Harry Kalas Phorever...

Legendary broadcaster Harry Kalas passed away today. Harry collapsed while preparing to call today's game against the Washington Nationals. So many phans will feel as though we've lost a member of our own families. I feel as though I've lost a part of myself, but Harry enhanced my love of the great sport we call baseball and I will always carry that love, and Harry, in my heart. I've stated on this page before that I consider Harry more of a Phillie than anyone who wears the uniform as an active member of the roster. Harry Kalas was a Phillie. Moreso, Harry Kalas was the Phillies. Please share your thoughts and memories of Harry in the comments section, or send them to PhoulBallz (at) verizon (dot) net.
