Whose stock is up, whose is down in Phillies spring training?

The Phillies have been playing baseball games for about a week now, and whether it was Bryce Harper's homer on his first pitch, Spencer Howard's dazzling debut, or the ongoing battle to play centerfield on Opening Day, there is no shortage of entertainment in Clearwater.

Report: Jason Kelce restructures with Eagles, Lane Johnson appears to be next

If you ask Jason Kelce what was his best week ever, he might have to pause to think about it.

Ten numbers that explain the Flyers after 20 games

It's been 20 games for the Flyers and there have been no shortage of storylines or memorable moments just over a third into the 2021 NHL season.

Which Eagles players are even worth keeping at this point?

The Eagles roster has kind of falling into a state of disrepair — for a number of reasons. The team has drafted poorly, it has retained aging veterans past the primes, and it has a ton of dead cap money (thanks Carson) that will force the team to find players on the cheap this coming season.

Phillies prospect watch: When will top young talent make MLB impact?

The Phillies implemented a strategy Eagles fans are probably quite (frustratingly) familiar with this offseason, the patented "old guy strategy." In addition to bringing back the entire starting line up from 2020, the Phillies added a ton of depth this offseason by way of veterans who could take a handful of important 26-man roster spots when the 2021 season kicks off.

Phillies likely done spending (at least until the trade deadline)

With the Phillies now playing spring training games, it appears that the roster drama will be surrounding who makes the team — at the conclusion of a bevy of position battles — rather than if they will add another impact player like Jake Odorizzi or even a marginal piece.

The 10 most interesting Phillies spring training storylines

A slow-paced offseason that had the season in doubt for much of it, will conclude with what is expected to be a full schedule of exhibitions, with a limited slate of opponents and travel. The regular season is also currently on pace to begin on time (April 1) and have a full 162-game campaign, which means teams like the Phillies will be anxiously getting players up to speed for the next month. Before the action begins, we've compiled the 10 most important storylines to watch for this March ahead of the 2021 MLB season.

Are the Flyers overrated? Or are they underrated?

The 2021 NHL season has been really unusual for a wide variety of reasons. The Flyers have felt the full brunt of that, as they've had the roll with the punches through cancelled games, injuries, COVID-19 quarantines and melting ice on the bank of Lake Tahoe this season. And its still only February.

Breaking down the Phillies biggest spring training position battles

There are really four main positional battles that will heat up when games begin in Florida next week. We've broken them down below, and have slotted the contenders in the order of likeliness — we believe — of them landing the role. It's also worth mentioning that some players can fall into more than one category, so a player vying for a rotation spot, for example, could also win a bullpen battle.

Ranking the Phillies' strengths and weaknesses heading into 2021 season

In 2021, the Phillies are expected to the same group of starting position players with a new starting pitcher or two, and a totally revamped bullpen. They're also (we hope) going to be playing 162 games, instead of 60. We'll be breaking down the Phils position by position as the team begins playing games in Clearwater next week. But before then, we thought it would be interesting to rank this team's strengths and weaknesses.
