The Pirates are hitting lots of Phillies batters, how should the Phillies respond?

How should teams respond when their players are getting hit by pitches at an alarming rate? The Pittsburgh Pirates are renowned for throwing inside to opposing hitters. This is a good thing.

Nothing is okay: Pirates 7, Phillies 4

Aaron Nola craps the duvet again and the Phillies help him out by forgetting how to hit with men on base. Oh god, this game. As so many do, it started so well. So positively. The Phillies and the Pirates traded runs in the first few innings, and it looked like Aaron Nola might be okay. Until the fifth inning when things started going horribly, horribly wrong. The Phillies had just...

Of the seven starters in the system, does one rise above the others on the depth chart of the Philadelphia Phillies since Aaron Nola‘s arrival in 2015? Did the trades of Cole Hamels or Ken Giles produce a stud to head the five-man staff? Has 2016’s MLB Draft pool left general manager Matt Klentak without a true number one? And when the smoke clears, will the red pinstripes...

So Eflin Good

Zach Eflin tossed a complete game 3-hit shutout Friday night versus the Pirates, requiring just 100 pitches to go all the way and pick up the win. It was the rookie's first career shut out. That's what I'm Eflin talking about! I know what you're thinking, I loved him in those High School Musicals, I wish he was my Neighbors. Wrong Zach. Both are real good though. After a rocky...
