AL Wild Card: Small markets, big rewards

The Phillies are out of the postseason for the third straight season. It stinks, but baseball will go on and I will be paying attention. It gets started tonight with the American League Wild Card game, or the play-in game. The Kansas City Royals, in the postseason for the first time since 1985, host the […]


Pennsylvania loves Pirates more than Phillies, says Reddit map maker

You may have seen one of those maps of the United States over the last month or so making the rounds with sports logos illustrating each state’s most loved or hated team in the NFL or college football. There is also one for baseball that is starting to make the rounds, showing which MLB team […]

A feel good night for Ryan Howard

Ryan Howard went from hero to goat, back to hero last night. A second-inning home run gave the Philadelphia Phillies a 1-0 lead over the visiting Houston Astros, but that was the only run the team would score until the 15th inning of the latest in a series of marathon games played by the Phillies […]

Ruben Amaro bad day

Ruben Amaro and the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day

It was not a great day for Ruben Amaro on Thursday. Perhaps the most important day of the season for a general manager flew by without any movement from the Phillies front office, Amaro opting to stand pat more so because he felt the other general managers were not playing the same game as he. […]

This Ruben Amaro comment on prospects says it all

“I think one of the most over-coveted elements of baseball are prospects. I don’t know how many prospects that have been dealt over the last several years have really come to bite people in the [rear end].”

yard sale

Phillies should run a yard sale, but yard sales sell junk

The trade deadline is creeping up with time quickly running out. The Phillies, it seems, are running out of options that will show any signs of a brighter future. This is not good for a team that by all accounts should be in a perfect situation to be a seller. ESPN’s Buster Olney was told […]


Happy Eagles Training Camp Day

For all intents and purposes, the 2014 Philadelphia Phillies season is over. The team is way out of the division race even if they put together a five-game winning streak and try to fool themselves into thinking there is still a chance things could turn around. I am sick and tired of hearing about the […]

It’s July 1; It’s time to blow the Phillies up

The calendar has flipped over to July, which means the trade deadline is looming and hard decisions must be made about this Philadelphia Phillies team. After a day off following a dismal home stand capped by a four-game sweep at the hands of the Atlanta Braves, it is beyond time to hit the reset button […]

Babe Ruth Boston Braves

This day in 1935, Phillies send Babe Ruth to retirement

There may be no more famous name in baseball than Babe Ruth. Anyone with any level of knowledge of baseball should be aware of the name Babe Ruth, The Great Bambino… Ruth is one of the biggest legends in the sport of baseball, but it was on this day in 1935 he played his final […]

Yeah, I started rooting for Josh Beckett

On Sunday I witnessed something I have never seen before in person. Los Angeles Dodgers starter Josh Beckett threw a no-hitter at Citizens Bank Park against the Philadelphia Phillies. It was the 283rd no-hitter in major league history, but it was the first time I ever watched one in person. Yes, I found myself at […]

Jonathan Papelbon, Phillies

Report: Howard Eskin and Papelbon had to be separated in the dugout

This may have been something brewing for a while, but Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon and sports media veteran Howard Eskin apparently needed to be separated before Saturday afternoon’s game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Whoa. Eskin and Papelbon just got into a heated verbal argument by the Phils dugout. Both had to be restrained. — […]
