Carlos Ruiz’s MVP chances just skyrocketed, maybe

Major League Baseball has approved Phillies catcher Carlos Ruiz for an exemption to allow for the use of Adderall this season. The normally banned substance led to Ruiz being suspended for 25 games at the start of the 2013 season (for using the drug in 2012 when Ruiz achieved career numbers). It was expected this […]

Hunter Pence’s youth baseball camp is just as you’d imagine

Hunter Pence may be long removed from a Phillies uniform already, but he still seems to be a pretty popular player around Philadelphia. His awkward style was something you would have to see to understand, but his grit and effort were never in question. Now, thanks to the folks at Sports Illustrated, you can get […]

Macho Row Phlashback: 1993 NLCS, Game 1

The 1993 National League Championship Series pitted the two-time National League champion Atlanta Braves against the gritty and defiant worst-to-first Philadelphia Phillies. It was a classic mismatch between a baseball power looking for a third trip back to the World Series for a potential rematch of the 1992 World Series with the Toronto Blue Jays […]

Ben Revere’s diving catch named “The 1″ by FOX Sports Live

The 2013 Phillies baseball season is in the books with many disappointments. The first losing season since 2002, failed additions to the roster, a fired manager, the fall of Roy Halladay and putting Ryan Howard and his mega contract and others on the shelf for the year all added up to a season that had […]

Hamels, Asche fuel Charlie Manuel’s 1,000th win

Cole Hamels was dominant, Cody Asche was inspiring and Charlie Manuel was smiling.

Charlie Manuel stuck on 999 wins, how many does he end with?

The Washington Nationals have been a rather significant disappointment this season. The Nationals won 100 games last season and now are struggling to get back to playing .500 baseball in the middle of August. Yet, despite their recent struggles the Nationals showed once again just how bad the Phillies are in 2013. If nothing else […]

Waiver Watch: Michael Young clears waivers, Phillies can now trade

Just earlier today I suggested the Phillies should do whatever they can to move third baseman Michael Young after not doing so prior to the original trade deadline last month.

With Chase Utley contract extension done, what’s next on Phillies To-Do List?

We knew for a while now the Phillies were working on getting Chase Utley under contract and prevent him from hitting the free agent market for 2014. Utley is now reported to be under contract through 2015 after agreeing to a two-year contract extension worth between $25 and $30 million according to multiple reports, which […]

How bad is two more years of Chase Utley, really?

When Chase Utley went barreling in to Chicago Cubs catcher Dioner Navarro last night in a knee-on-knee collission, I could only hope for Utley's sake that he had already signed a contract extension with the Phillies. As it turns out, that may have been the case. Chase Utley could be on his way to playing […]
