Philadelphia-phillies-lee
It was a fun second inning. The Phillies jumped all over Nationals pitcher Taylor Jordan, featuring a two run blast from Darin Ruf, a safety squeeze RBI from Cliff Lee, and the offense batted around. Unfortunately there were seven and a half innings left. Lee wasn't bad tonight. His command...

Darin Ruf's MLB Man Cave Interview

I was searching for something on Darin Ruf, since he's one of the few good things going for the Phillies right now, and I came across this video from last year. He seems like a levelheaded guy and I hope he can continue to improve defensively in the outfield, because the Phils need his bat in the lineup. Perhaps he secures a starting gig for next season, along with Revere and...

Losses Keep Piling Up For Phils

Cliff Lee gave the Phillies a quality start tonight. Why would that be enough? (Photo: AP) All the best metaphors and similes to describe a Phillies loss in which they blow an early lead have been exhausted over the course of this dreadful season. At this stage, you can only come out and say it: The Phillies were up 4-0 to start the third inning of tonight’s game. They’d end...

Storyline: Front Office Decisions for the Philadelphia Phillies

Even after the trading deadline passed without Michael Young in a new uniform, the Philadelphia Phillies still can deal the third baseman through a waiver transaction in August. It’s easy to publish opinions and predictions before the event; however, this piece was my writing sample on July 22 (more in welcome section), when the Phils had a shot to win the division. How close...

Phillies' Roy Halladay could start minor league rehab assignment this week

As we suggested at the beginning of last week, Roy Halladay's return to the Philadelphia Phillies' rotation is looking more and more imminent.  After a successful simulated game yesterday, Halladay may be starting a minor league rehab assignment this upcoming week.  That would be the final hurdle before returning to the rotation. Matt Gelb of the Philadelphia Inquirer...

Chase Utley Could Earn $75 million From Phillies With Extension

At first glance, you would assume that the Phillies re-signed Chase Utley for two more years on the cheap. Utley’s new two-year extension will pay him $27 million.  The Star Ledger is reporting that if Utley stay healthy he can max out at five years, $75 million, according to major-league sources. That number could jump to $30 million in two years if Utley does not land on the...

The Downslide Continues; Phillies Blanked by Nats 6-0

Since there were no good images from today's game, I figured Cliff Lee's disappointment would say it all. Assuming you had the same prediction as any other baseball fan for today's Phillies-Nationals matchup, you were correct. The Stephen Strausberg we've seen dominate teams across the league appeared today in Nationals...

Phillies sign Luis Encarnacion, 16-year old international prospect

The Phillies have yet to finalize the details on the previously reported contract with Cuban pitcher Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez, but the team has signed a contract with one of the top-rated international prospects. According to Baseball America, the Phillies have signed Luis Encarnacion, a 16-year old third base prospect from the Dominican Republic. Per Baseball America, Encarnacion...

Phillies Sign Ryan Demmin

The Lakewood Blue Claws announced that the Phillies have signed 25-year old lefty Ryan Demmin from the independent Frontier League’s Normal CornBelters. Demmin was signed in 2010 as an undrafted free agent by the Washington Nationals and spent 2012 with the High-A Potomac Nationals of the Carolina League. Demmin averaged about a strikeout per inning pitched in organized ball from...

Will Sox Pursue A Post-Waiver Michael Young?

Motto Of The 2013 Non-Waiver Trade SeasonThe fact that Phillies third baseman Michael Young has cleared waivers might re-spark interest in the veteran by The Carmine Hose. As the Brock Holt/Brandon Snyder 'solution' continues to not be any solution at all and as Mike Napoli continues his descent into 'the black hole of ineptitude', a right-handed bat like Young'...

Gameday: Phillies (52-64) at Nationals (56-60)

Lannan gets lit up as Nationals pound Phillies

Chase Utley had two of the Phillies' four hits in a 9-2 loss to the Nationals. In his time with the Washington Nationals, John Lannan posted a 3-13 record against the Phillies. In his first two starts against his former team, the Phillies were victorious. Lannan's return to Nationals Park,...

Nats’ Offense Beats Lannan, Phillies To Snap Skid

After enduring a miserable series sweep by the Atlanta Braves, the Washington Nationals (55-60) showed some fight against another NL East rival, the Philadelphia Phillies (52-63), in a 9-2 victory. All the elements that generally haven’t been working for the Nationals this season were operating in full force on Friday night. Dan Haren pitched a gem. The offense produced runs...
