Obviously it was a decidedly slow news day Tuesday in Phillies Nation. Here is what we picked up:
- Because the Dolphins were scheduled a Monday night game Sept. 21 against the Colts at Dolphin Stadium, the Marlins have moved their Sept. 21 game against the Phillies to July 16.
- If you had to read just one Harry Kalas tribute (hopefully you read many), Bill Conlin’s piece about Harry took the cake. That’s because 1Chair was good friends with Harry moving up in the Phillie beat ranks. It’s written with the sense of a man whose sadness was overcome by fondness and reflection. Very touching.
- In the minors, Mike Stutes had an impressive Monday for the Reading Phillies. Mike Drago reports the 22-year-old (who was drafted last season) pitched five innings of two-hit ball, letting up those two hits in the sixth inning.
