Boston Red Sox v Philadelphia Phillies

The future begins now for the Phillies

To be successful in the world of sports a team and franchise needs to be capable of making changes and adjustments before it is too late. Few organizations can demonstrate that better than the Philadelphia Phillies. In this case, the hope is that it is better later than never. On Friday manager Ryne Sandberg resigned […]

MLB: Washington Nationals at Philadelphia Phillies

Ryne Sandberg resigns as Phillies manager

Ryne Sandberg resigned Friday afternoon, effective immediately. Ruben Amaro now on the clock. I will say this about Ryne Sandberg. The man loves his baseball, and he can probably fill a role on a baseball staff. Manager of a major league baseball team proved to be too much for him to handle, and the roster […]

Off The Hook

The 2015 Phillies are Off the Hook

The bar was set low for the 2015 Phillies and last night they failed to clear it in Baltimore. I honestly cannot remember the last time I watched a Phillies game quite that ugly from start to finish. If there is one single game that can be described as the low point of the franchise since […]


Seller’s market at MLB trade deadline could bode well for Phillies

We are about a month and a half away from the trade deadline in Major League Baseball, and it will pretty much be the only thing worth paying close attention to when it comes to the Phillies until that time. Other than the development and rise of Maikel Franco, that is. The Phillies have players […]

Jonathan Papelbon on the move? Not quite yet.

Phillies ready to pay for shipping on Papelbon trade

With the Phillies the joke of the NL East and scuffling in the basement of the division, and with the trade deadline now starting to creep closer and closer, the trade rumors are beginning to kick up a little bit more by the day. One of the most likely players to be shipped out if […]

Ruben Amaro says Phillies fans “don’t understand the game”

“They don’t understand the game,” Amaro said. “They don’t understand the process. There’s a process. And then they bitch and complain because we don’t have a plan. There’s a plan in place and we’re sticking with the plan. We can’t do what’s best for the fan. We have to do what’s best for the organization so the fan can reap the benefit of it later on. That’s the truth.”

Per Jim Salisbury of CSN Philly.

Jeff Francoeuer homers vs. Red Sox. April 8, 2015.

Francoeur homers, Harang holds down the fort as Phillies beat Red Sox

When the Phillies made offseason moves to acquire Aaron Harang and Jeff Francoeur, not many were expecting the roster moves to turn the Phillies into a division contender. On Wednesday night though, each proved valuable as the Phillies evened the season-opening series against the Boston Red Sox with a 4-2 victory. Francoeur broke out the […]

1915 Philadelphia Phillies cap

Phillies and Red Sox will wear special 1915 caps on Thursday

Before the Phillies and Red Sox close out their season-opening series at Citizens Bank Park on Thursday night, the Phillies will hold a special tribute to the 1915 Phillies in honor of the 100th anniversary of the 1915 World Series between the Phillies and Red Sox. The first 500 fans will get a replica 1915 pennant […]

New York Mets v Philadelphia Phillies

Do’s and Don’ts of attending a Phillies Game

Going to Citizens Bank Park can be a wonderful experience, even when things look bleak with the team taking the field in red pinstripes. As awesome as going to a game at the ballpark can be, there are some annoying things many fans seem to do throughout the game that can be distracting. So, as […]

Boston Red Sox v Philadelphia Phillies

Phillies baseball is here, and I do care

Over the years I have come to be a rather optimistic Phillies fan even when times looked dark. To me, that’s what being a fan is all about, and I am not about to change that stance any time soon. The Philadelphia Phillies open the 2015 Major League Baseball season Monday afternoon at Citizens Bank […]
