While you were sleeping, Phillies move to four games out

The Phillies hung on for an ugly but huge win last night against the Miami Marlins, assuring themselves they would not lose any ground in the hunt for the final National League Wild Card spot. Catching the Atlanta Braves is probably asking too much so it is all about the last possible playoff spot this […]

Harry Kalas’s September 11 monologue

The acts that took place on September 11, 2001 rocked our nation and reshaped the way we look at our country, family, friends and more. The nation took time to pause from our every lives to reflect and pay tribute to the victims of the terrorist attacks. The sporting world took a step back to […]


Top 10 1990s Phillies Memories

The Phillies will pay tribute to the 1990s tonight at Citizens Bank Park, complete with the old maroon pinstripes and hats with that lovable baseball “P.” For a franchise that has so many bad baseball seasons, the 1990s certainly had its fair share of forgettable seasons. But that does not mean the 1990s were completely […]


Frandsen, Kratz give Phillies fans reason to stick it out in September

Let’s give the Phillies some credit. Despite being out of the playoff hunt, they have become a team that can be fun to watch. With a little over a month to go in the season we know that the Phillies will miss out on October baseball for the first time since 2006, which means that […]


Hunter Pence sends note to fans receiving bobble head

It is always bound to happen to some team every year or so. A player you thought was going to be a fixture on your roster winds up being traded at the trade deadline as the season continues to spiral out of control. But what do you do with the 40,000+ mass-produced bobble heads you […]


Phillippe Aumont called up, will he relieve Cliff Lee?

Phillippe Aumont, one of the prospects received in the 2009 trade of Cliff Lee to the Seattle Mariners, has been called up by the Philadelphia Phillies to replace Jeremy Horst. Horst has been placed on the paternity leave list. As irony would have it, Aumont will be activated for tonight’ game, which will be started […]


Phillie Phanatic puts on show with Jabbawockeez

I do not know that I totally get what Jabbawockeez is all about, but I cannot deny their entertainment value. The champions of the inaugural season of reality dance show America’s Best Dance Crew (yes, I just typed that phrase out in full) have become somewhat known in recent years. You might remember when they […]


Are we really honoring Mike Lieberthal?

Mike Lieberthal to the Phillies Wall of Fame? To borrow a quote from the former catcher, “Whatever.” I bought tickets to the Phillies Wall of Fame Game this season, as I have a few times the past couple of years, because I have found it to be a neat experience to see some of the franchise’s great […]


Is Ruben Amaro wavering placing Cliff Lee on waivers?

The trading of Shane Victorino and Hunter Pence this week signaled that Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro came to grips with reality that the team needed an overhaul. But is he perhaps showing a little more fear than we’d like to see in today’s decision to place starting pitcher Cliff Lee on waivers? Source: Phillies […]


Five memories of Shane Victorino’s time in Philly

Shane Victorino was a player to move, but will not be kicked out in shame. The Phillies traded Shane Victorino yesterday to the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for right-handed reliever Josh Lindblom and Double A catcher Ethan Martin as well as a player to be named or cash. The deadline day deal seems like […]


Howard homers, Halladay harbors hope

The Phillies won an ugly game last night, and there is no other way to describe it. Atrocious base-running and poor fielding have doomed the Phillies all season, but somehow they were able to escape the unfortunate outcome Monday night in Los Angeles, beating the Dodgers 3-2. First, the positives. Joe Blanton gave the Phillies eight […]


Dykstra should have called Saul: Pleads guilty to three federal bankruptcy charges

Lenny Dykstra, the star of the 1993 Philadelphia Phillies, has pleaded guilty to three counts related to bankruptcy fraud, according to the Associated Press. Dykstra faces up to 20 years in prison and is scheduled for sentencing on December 3. The charges Dykstra filed a guilty plea to included one count of bankruptcy fraud, another […]

On this day in 1932, Philadelphia Athletics win 18-17 slugfest

Long before the Phillies and Cubs played a wild one in Wrigley Field, it was another Philadelphia baseball team that came out on top of a high-scoring outburst. Today marks the 80th anniversary of one of baseball’s wildest games, in which the Philadelphia Athletics topped the Cleveland Indians 18-17 in 18 innings. July 10, 1932: […]
