Just Sayin - Big League Note :
Energy - Nick Maton is an energy player and he brought that to the Phillies tonight - he’s always talking and is a great teammate - an early shot of him in dugout rubbing Stott on the head after Bryson’s first hit shows that. The youthful energy may just be their ticket to success - it’s infatuates and transcends - just sayin. And kudos as well to Odubel and Bryson Stott for their energy this evening as well.
Happy Day, Happy Baseball ⚾️
