A leadoff HR by Jose Cruz didn't hold up, and the Pirates wore us down 4-3. I hate losing games with the winning run on base.

Tommy John continues to be our salvation. 1-0, 4 hit shutout. Only run came on McRae & McCarver hitting doubles together.

6-9. The real life Phils were 10-5, unaware of the train wreck ahead.

Traded Luzinski for Yaz and Bill Lee. If I'm not going to win, I might as well draw fans. Dumped Billy Champion to the Cubs for Larry Gura. Thinking of the future...

Cut a late deal with the Twins. Ditched Don Money, Ken Reynolds, and Dave Downs for Dave LaRoche and Bill Campbell.

A good win today...3-1 at the Stick. Fryman gave ups 2 hits over 6 innings and Hiller mopped up. Left a dozen guys win base...that **** has to stop.

April 27...Steve Stone shuts the Phils out 2-0 at the Stick. Geez...Stone? Time to reshuffle the old batting order.

I know it's a rebuilding project and the 72 Phillies were terrible in real life.

Still, losing to the 1972 Padres is pretty rough ...

I felt that one.

You have made so many trades that is it really the '72 Phillies? I think a rebuilding project doesn't mean trading the majority of the roster, but just getting some key players to go with the core group and come up with a winner. How does that sound?

It doesn't sound like a successful strategy for the long term. The 72 Phils finally finish their transformation in real life in 1980. By that point Carlton, Boone Bowa, Schmidt, & Luzinski are the only remnants of 72. The team is on its fourth manager since then as well.

While I appreciate your input, I feel that my approach is building a much more solid core more quickly. I'm building a strong base of prospects with the hope of launching a dynasty. Copping Hough, Flanagan, Forsch, and Sutter leaves me with a far better core of young pitching. My theory—work with what you have and take any chance to better the team. Yes, these are the 72 Phils. By 76, I want to be in the series...not losing the first round of the playoffs three times in a row.

After taking a Memorial Day break

and dealing with basement clean-up, I got back to my Phils. Second pace and 2 over .500 is far from what I expected. The boys have been giving it their all.

McCarver started being a pain in the backside, so I traded him for young Johnny Wockenfuss and Lenny Randle, giving up highly cough, cough prized cough cough prospect Fred Andrews as well.

Gamble & McRae hit the DL for a month each within days of each other...but Tommy Hutton filled in well. Jerry Martin covered well for Gamble as well.
