Welcome to the big leagues, Ethan Martin. After a nice first inning in which he struck out two and a second inning that was 1-2-3, Martin started getting lit up. In the third, Jason Heyward singled in Andrelton Simmons. The fourth was clean but then came the scoring. Five Braves... Continue reading

People are so negative about the Phillies these days but there's one thing that everyone needs to remember: It's still early. The Phillies could probably go to the World Series again if things all pan out. Being all negative and saying the team isn't good enough is no help at... Continue reading

Courtesy riceweevil.com Ruben Amaro has done it once again. In a market where Josh Hamilton gets $125 million and Cody Ross gets $24 million, he had to be patient and wait for the big catch. Finally on January 22 the Phillies landed their righthanded power bat. Well-done, Ruben. The hole... Continue reading

BS ALERT! Clayton Kershaw has as much a chance as I do of winning the Cy Young Baseball is at it insulting our intelligence as human beings all over again! As recent reports have stated, the Phillies have no "finalists" for the major awards about to be given out. That... Continue reading

IT'S SUNDAY! TIME FOR THE SUNDAY NEWSPAPER! COMICS! COUPONS! Umm... BRAVES TICKETS! Yes, the Atlanta Braves have gotten desperate. Unable to get people from Atlanta and surrounding areas to come to Braves games, they resorted to what any desperate merchandiser does who can't get people to buy their product over...

ERMAGHERD! JIMMY ROLLINS DIDN'T RUN SO FAST He fessed up today: “I was just upset before I even got up there. I was already out of it. Mentally just upset.” This reminds me one time of back when I had a job. I showed up at Caldor and my cat... Continue reading

Former Phillie and current Rangers pitcher Roy Oswalt got off to a really lousy start for the Rangers this year. REALLY lousy. He got six starts and had a 6.49 ERA. Thanks to the big bats on the Rangers, he actually got three wins. Clearly he had no business being... Continue reading

Photo: Philliedelphia/Steve Trapani Time to trade Shane. We all know he's not coming back next year and that it's easy to replace a .250 hitter in your lineup. Plus, the Phillies already have infield popups covered with Jimmy Rollins. So where is he going to go? Jim Bowden, the former... Continue reading

"WE LIKE ROY! WE LIKE ROY!" Download Actual audio of crowd's reaction. That is what the Phillies fans are screaming tonight. (Well, the ones that are able to stay up until 10:10 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time.) Roy Halladay makes his much-anticipated return to the Phillies rotation tonight AND Kyle Kendrick... Continue reading

I totally thought Vance was hurt. The totally awesome Chad Moriyama makes awesome .gifs of baseball games, and I asked him if he could do us some Worley tripping. He was all for it and hooked us up. Check it out: Here's another angle: Now, I can't give you all... Continue reading

Carlos Ruiz was selected to be the one to handle the catching duties for knuckleballer R.A. Dickey during the 2012 All-Star game. But to do so, Dickey brought along his own catchers' mitt for Ruiz to catch (pitctured above). Knuckleballs are highly unpredicable. So much so that Tony LaRussa did... Continue reading

UNREAL: A TEAM ACTUALLY TOOK CHAD QUALLS OFF OF THE PHILLIES HANDS! The New York Yankees of all teams took Qualls off of the Phillies hands' for a player to be named later or cash. That means the stupid Yankees are paying the rest of Qualls' $1.1 million salary, which... Continue reading

In what might be the dumbest move that Major League Baseball has seen since the first and second time they thought a baseball team would work in Florida, the Colorado Rockies have gone to a four-man pitching rotation that will be limited to 75 pitches each start. Say what? We... Continue reading

Really simple: -Thome hits a home run as DH and has two hits -Mike Fontenot's glove shows his .400 bat isn't worth it -Hunter Pence airmails a throw that would have saved a run -Teams go extra innings thanks to said run -Some rookie (B.J. Rosenberg) has to pitch with... Continue reading

The Phillies had one more game in Flushing (like "flushing a toilet"), New York at Citi Field and the series was at stake. Dillon Gee went up against Cliff Lee who can't buy a win for the Phillies. Well, Cliff Lee did not win again. The 1st inning was a... Continue reading

Photo from ChadMoriyama.com - there are two more angles so check it out. Lee vs. Gee: one of the best matchups we get now and then, and not just namewise. The two have matched up before and provided some six-letter pitching matchup excitement. Dillon Gee is 4-3 with a 4.92... Continue reading

Wearing one of the better-looking Stars and Stripes collection hats in a long time, the Phillies headed up to Shea Stadium in New York and got back into the winning spirit. Phillies fans must be aware that a Shake Shack is opening in Philadelphia and so therefore had no need... Continue reading

@GMCarson just pointed me to this: The Phillies have moved one-time super prospect Domonic Brown to center field at AAA Lehigh Valley. Wow. If you fail at left and fail at right, only other place is center, right? (Well, I suppose Brown could return to pitching). This move could be... Continue reading

Left field is better than the bench Many moons ago, back on April 25, our very own beloved blogger who hardly writes anything Steve Gallo, wrote that a good fit for the Phillies would be Chase Utley in left field. Today, guess what Dave Murphy of the Daily News wrote?... Continue reading

Well, this brings lots of bad memories. Ryan Howard on the ground, Jason Motte appearing out of nowhere and actually pitching well, David Freese being uninjured just long enough to do some damage. But, it's 2012, the Cardinals are without Carpenter, Pujols, Berkman and La Russa, and the Phillies are... Continue reading

Cole Hamels takes the mound against Edwin Jackson tonight as the last-place Phillies take on the first-place Nationals with a never-before used lineup. Yeah, Erik puts lineups at the end, but he's too busy flipping burgers and spitting in your McCafe shake to write one today. Check this out: Pierre,... Continue reading

The Cubs' Brilliant marketing team decided to have a Social Media Night at Wrigley field to help them sell tickets for a night game and their bad team. Because this series is just two games and it's the middle of the week in May, they can't count on Phillies fans... Continue reading

The Cardinals have given J.C. Romero his unconditional release. Romero has bounced in and out of now four organizations since the Phillies released him last June: the Nationals, Yankees, Rockies, and now the Cardinals. For the Cardinals, Romero had an 10.13 ERA in 11 games. Somehow I feel he would... Continue reading

No way - it can't, be can it? After using 25,732 different lineups, Charlie Manuel will actually use the SAME ONE two days in a row as the Phillies face the San Diego Padres for the second game of a three-game series. Roy Halladay is on the mound for the... Continue reading
