Site News - May 2016
May Update: Helloooooooooooooo! I know it’s been a very long time since I last updated the site. I will in no way be able to claim to even come close to the site goals this year… or last year. I can’t even claim to be fully back this month, but I did manage to put a few articles from spring training (from the Doylestown Intelligencer) and May 31-June 2 from the Chicago Tribune, covering the Phils’ series against the Cubs.
Not as bad as feared…?: The Phils have gotten off to a surprisingly good start this season. Not only because of expectations, but also the “advanced numbers” don’t quite match up to the win-loss success. There is some hope seen in the pitching staff, but the bats need to improve drastically if the Phils are to be a true contender in the near future. Probably not this year, but there is some hope for a brighter future!
Media Update: For now, this part of the site is still going to have to rest in peace. If time allows, maybe I can add some sound clips, or find some YouTube videos that pertain to the 1980 Phils… or something?
Digital Pictures Needed: I’d still love pictures of the 1980 season If you have something (for free – I’m poor and this is a non-profit site!), please let me know through the contact section.
Wanted: I am still looking for any and all articles from the 1980 season to include in the website. In particular, I seek the Philadelphia papers, which I have very limited access to. Anyone that has copies of the Inquirer or the Daily News or other area newspapers please contact me – digital scans are fine by me (and in fact are preferable, as I don’t get in trouble with the wife for cluttering up the house!). Clippings, photocopies, whatever contains part of the story of the 1980 Phillies is acceptable. I am also looking for any YouTube videos from the 1980 season, as Jimdo allows easy connection to these videos.
Future Updates: Will come as I can get to them. For now, it may be sporadic, but I am going to try to get back into the monthy updates, even if it is minimal. Please be patient and enjoy the archive!
