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 […]

Rebuilding Phillies Still Seeing Steady Ticket Sales

No one is sugarcoating the 2015 season for Philadelphia Phillies fans. This is a rebuilding year and the Phillies aren’t magically turning things around to make a playoff push. We’d all welcome it if it happened, but it’s much more likely the team trades assets, keeps losing and looks to the future. As blunt and […]

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.

Phillies Average Tickets Under $70 All Weekend Against Nationals

The Philadelphia Phillies and their fans know they’re in a rebuilding phase. Last year made that clear, as the Phillies were one of the worst teams with just 73 wins. Despite supposedly being one of the worst teams in baseball, the Phillies turned around from a disappointing 8-0 loss on Opening Day to take the […]

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 […]
