Nice, Jeremy Guthrie might be headed for the waiver wire. I better say this now because I don't know how long it will last. Rockies are in first place all by themselves.

My Braves are in last place where they will be all year. Should trade Freeman and Swanson so we have zero talent and they dont spend their entire careers in the cellar.

Twins are going from worst to first this year. 30 years after they did it the first time.

Twins have some very good young talent that struggled last year, they could have a very interesting year.

Based on this result, the Nats will be lucky to win 10 games this year.

How long before Harper is a Phillie? That will be funny. The Natspos won't be able to afford to keep him. Hah.

If he gets what it is reported that he (or really Scott Boras) wants, only the Yanks, Dodgers or maybe Red Sox will be able to afford him.

The Phillies have one player... one... on contract for 2018. They have a $2.5B TV deal with Philly's own Comcast as well as NBC Universal.

Who better to start a franchise with and start paying that enormous TV deal forward with an explosion in viewership back to 2008-2010 levels?

Maybe work a deal with the Angels for Trout - he starts pulling $34M a year next year (up from $20M this year).

Trout and Wentz are butt buddies now, so this could happen. Would Flaggy become a Phils fan if they snagged The Millville Meteor?

Imagine if they snagged Harper in free agency and traded for Trout as well. Holy Moses!

Nope, but that doesn't really have much to do with the Phillies. It's just sad to see a team not that far removed from two WS appearances in a row and sellout crowds reduced to battling with the Braves for last place in the East.

Happens all the time, it's called ebb and flow. How many seasons have we gone now with the Yankees missing the playoffs? The Red Sox finished dead last in the AL East just as recently as 2014. The Cubs spent more than a century before winning another World Series. Some teams are up, some are down. Phils should be up again in a year or two. Considering their history, I'll take that.

Well, there are only two things certain here:

1. The Phillies have a chance to have Harper and Trout in their starting lineup in 2019.
2. The Natinals will have neither in theirs in 2019.

Please explain where I'm wrong. I doubt the Phillies will get both of them, but please explain where anything in my post is wrong.

Yeah, that's what I thought, thanks.
