Philadelphia Phillies Future With Cole Hamels Closing With Trade Deadline Approaching

It seems inevitable that the Philadelphia Phillies will be trading longtime ace Cole Hamels before the deadline, as the Phillies have the worst record in baseball at 27-53 and desperately need some young building blocks. There aren’t many storylines to sink your teeth into as a Phillies fan other than their current rebuilding process, but […]

Phillie Phanatic, Carlos Ruiz have forgettable moments behind the plate

New Philadelphia 76ers draft pick Jahil Okafor was invited by the Philadelphia Phillies to toss out the ceremonial first pitch Tuesday night before taking on the Milwaukee Brewers. For a basketball player, it was not a terrible first pitch, although it ended up getting away from the Phillie Phanatic, who was none too pleased with […]

Boston Red Sox v Philadelphia Phillies

The future begins now for the Phillies

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.
