One week ago today, Charlie Manuel managed his 1,416th regular-season game as the skipper of the Philadelphia Phillies. It was an unremarkable game in an unremarkable season, losing 6-3 to the NL East-leading Atlanta Braves. It was also Charlie Manuel’s last game as the manager of the Philadelphia Phillies. Just two days prior, Manuel won […]The post Charlie Manuel Deserved A Better Ending appeared first on The Sports Fan Journal.

Roy Halladay loves Charlie Manuel. But, all the same, the rehabbing pitcher says that it was time for a change in Philadelphia. Manuel was fired as manager of the Phillies on Friday, in a lot of ways putting an end to the team’s glory days surrounding its 2008 and 2009 World Series runs. Still, Halladay, who on Tuesday was pitching for the Low-A Lakewood BlueClaws, says that the...

Roy Halladay completed a moderately fair rehab effort with the Phillies’ Class A club on Tuesday night and did so with no ill effects. However, the biggest story out of Lakewood, NJ may have been that the ace right-hander seemed to declare that the recent switch at the managerial position for the big league team was long overdue.
The Philadelphia Phillies' top farm club on Tuesday offered a free funeral to an eastern Pennsylvania fan recently diagnosed with ALS.
The Lehigh Valley IronPigs announced the winner of its funeral giveaway during a home game at Coca-Cola Park.
Steve Paul, 64, of Freemansburg got a standing ovation as he was wheeled onto the field and announced as the recipient of a funeral...
From the minor-league baseball club that gave you the world's first urinal gaming system comes a promotion that's more 6 feet under than it is over the top: One ''lucky'' fan will win a free funeral package.
The Triple A affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies, the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, plans to announce the winner of its latest, and perhaps most bizarre...
It was a nice winning streak while it lasted (a whole two games). The Colorado Rockies defeated the Philadelphia Phillies by a score of 5-3 on Tuesday.
The Rockies got to Tyler Cloyd quickly. Troy Tulowitzki and Wilin Rosario homered off him in the first and third innings respectively. Cloyd lasted six innings, surrendering five earned runs. Cloyd settled down after the third...
Philadelphia Phillies pitcher John Lannan is going to miss the rest of the season because of a 60% percent tear of a tendon in his knee. The tear will require surgery, which will keep him out for four to six months. Lannan will go get a second opinion but is pretty sure that he will need the surgery.
Lannan said on Tuesday he has a 60 percent tear of a tendon in the knee. Phillies...
A day after Jim Salisbury of Comcast Sportsnet Philadelphia reported that the Phillies were taking a look at outfielder Roger Bernadina, the Phillies signed Bernadina today. Bernadina will take the roster spot of Michael Martinez, who was optioned to AAA Lehigh Valley, reports Todd Zolecki. Bernadina was released by the...
A Phillies comeback win? Remember what that feels like? It seems like it’s been so long since we’ve seen one. Down a run going into the ninth inning, the game looked about over. But a leadoff double by Erik Kratz gave the Phillies life. Carlos Ruiz doubled in Kratz, and Michael Young finished the game with walkoff single.
Cliff Lee had his best outing in a while. It...

A win tonight would give Ryne Sandberg his first series win as manager of the Phillies. A loss would give the Phillies and Rockies a split.
Cliff Lee is in a stretch that looks a lot like the start of his season last year. Aside from some hiccups, he's pitched fairly deep into most games and allows minimal damage but the fact that he allows any damage at all finds him in the loss or no...
Roger Bernadina is officially a Phillie. He of a .178 batting average and .517 OPS this season. He's been a passable 4th outfielder in the past with the Nationals, but not in 2013. Hence being released.Amaro is doing a helluva job fielding the worst team possible. He's give Casper Wells (.150/.380), John McDonald (.093/.336), and recently demoted Michael Martinez...
