The biggest takeaway theme of the Shenk book, all the more relevant given the struggles of the current iteration of the Phillies, is the critical importance of the scouting and player development functions, an aspect the Phillies struggle with currently, but has been the foundation of their success in the pennant years of the late 70s and early 2000's.
But for those of us who are life members of Phillies nation, those fans who have suffered with and celebrated this team over the years, Shenk gives us many insider stories and anecdotes that provide color and perspective on what we witnessed from the stands. If These Walls Could Talk is a solid addition to your Phillies library.
Larry has put together a look into the management and players in a way that brought back memories for me of those days.
And insights into those events and people,
Thanks, Larry Shenk for writing this,
