MLB Winter Meetings: Phillies content without making a splash, Rob Thomson didn’t watch the World Series, and MLB Rule 5 Draft update
MLB Winter Meetings are underway in Nashville, Tennessee and I have a few updates for…
Orlando Arcia done messed around and made it personal. His little locker room stunt laughing at Bryce Harper put a target on the Braves’ back, and both he and Casty showed up dressed to impress with a subtle message for the opposing clubhouse.

Of course, both players hit two home runs, and Harper further added salt to the wound by staring down Arcia during both trips around the basepaths. It was a vintage performance from two of the most hard-nosed players in the sport.

The Phillies, in general, feed off energy like few other teams I’ve seen, and these guys are the engines that drive the whole dugout’s energy. The Phillies may have scored 10 runs, but Harper and Castellanos scored 6 on their own.
If you’ve been living under a rock, you’re probably wondering how Coach Prime fits in. Well, simply put, he let his team know when to take the talk personally.
Like we’ve seen with so many great athletes, it doesn’t take much for the best to use it as fuel. A stupid little remark after a win turned Orlando Arcia into the reason the Braves got stomped tonight.
The Phillies now look forward to Thursday night at 6:07 PM for Game 4. The Braves will send Spencer Strider to the mound, who, while pitching well against the Fightins in the regular season, has to be scared shitless of pitching in South Philly.
