The Harrisburg Senators (Washington Nationals) took on the Erie SeaWolves (Detroit Tigers) on Saturday, August 7, 2021. The Senators lost 7-0.

Before the game began the Senators unveiled their newest addition to their Life Size Bobblehead Hall of Fame. Mr. National a.k.a. Ryan Zimmerman now has a life size bobblehead on display at FNB Field. The first 750 fans through the gate received a replica bobblehead.

While eating my dinner at the River City Grille I looked over the rosters for both teams. None of the names on the Senators roster rang any bells, but two names stuck out from the SeaWolves – Riley Greene and Spencer Torkelson. Both are highly watched prospects. Riley Greene hit a lead off home run.

Bad Decision for the Phillies

As you know, I am a huge Phillies fan.  I just read on ESPN that the Phillies traded away three minor league players: Adrian Cardenas, Josh Outman, and Matthew Spencer, to the the A’s.  In return the Phillies will receive pitcher Joe Blanton who is 5-12 this season.  This is a bad move in my opinion as a Phillies fan.  Those were three of their best minor league players.  I’m not too sure what this will do for any of their cards.  This Phillies just traded away some of their future stars.  I can’t wait for Outman and Cardenas to make it to the majors some day.
