Report: Phillies considering Indians’ pitching coach Callaway for position

Cleveland Indians logoMore manager stuff!

It’s time for a daily news report.

Phillies tee up Callaway

The Phillies are reportedly interested in Mickey Callaway for the managerial position. Callaway, 42, is currently the Indians pitching coach, heading a unit that ranked first in the American League in just about every pitching category. That’s not a fluke, either, as the Indians have been a top-three staff for the last three seasons.

Callaway has been their pitching coach since 2013, and surely helped the team turn around their fortunes on the mound.

Rupp lends a hand

Cameron Rupp is known for his community service, especially in regards to the PSPCA and helping pets find a new home. But recently he took matters into his own hands.

Rupp adopted a Cane Corso, naming her Lola, on Oct. 3, according to NBC Philadelphia. Lola will live with Rupp and his other dog, Chief.

Good dude.


Once again, the Washington Nationals will not win a World Series.

It’s Cubs vs. Dodgers and Astros vs. Yankees. Go Astros!

    I know the fans hate him for accepting a deal that was basically too good to turn down, but how about Jayson Werth as a fourth outfielder next season? He seems like a guy who could provide some veteran leadership while picking up a start or two every week.

    You’re not a Philly fan. In no way should we bring him back not even as a special advisor. Let him go to the american league to finish his career. He chose his path. I don’t want bad things to happen to him, but he never needs to wear our colors again. Go Phillies! Btw, Callaway might be a good pick up.

      ……and in other news, Larry Bowa was named senior advisor to Klentak early Fri afternoon….

      I’m surprised that Phils Nation didn’t have a story on it.

    They’re not big fans of Bowa, so they will have something later on, as part of another story.

    Good to see keg would pass up 18 million a year if you are his employer and read this he is financially secure and has no need for money. Werth would be a good 4th outfielder I want a winning team and I like how he plays the game. He can help the young players until Cozens and Quinn are ready for Philly
