August tenth marked the one year anniversary of Taylor Buchholz' promotion to AA Reading. Ironically, he was Reading's starting pitcher on the anniversary and threw yet another strong outing that lowered his ERA even further. What's more important, the outing should have been an exclamation point to convince the Phillies that Buchholz has had enough fun in Reading and could use a change of scenery to the Pocono Mountains, where the Scranton Wilkes-Barre Red Barons make their home.

It's possible that the Phillies were the only team with any shot at signing young Taylor Buchholz in 2000. Growing up as a Phillies fan meant that signing with Philly would move him a step closer to a childhood dream. Now, every start moves him even closer to that dream and an arrival in Philadelphia.
