Found May 31, 2013 on Philliedelphia:
Coming off a series split with the first-place Boston Red Sox, the Phillies had a few positives they could hang their hats on going forward. The biggest positive rested on the shoulders of Domonic Brown, who continues to swing a hot bat. Going into four straight series against last-place teams,...

Philadelphia Phillies storyline: Win, place or a no-show

When Jimmy Rollins and the Philadelphia Phillies were the hunters before their dominant era, they established themselves with that September run past our northern foe. This season, however, they began for the first time since then as the challenger. TAL’S HANDY CAPS WELCOME, NEWCOMERS: By design my articles represent a baseball man’s thinking, the view from the dugout and...

De Fratus Proclaims Himself Papelbon’s Protege

Justin De Fratus, image- AP On the latest edition of the PhoulBallz Minor League Podcast, Phillies reliever Justin De Fratus joined me and my co-host Tug Haines as our guest.  Among the topics of discussion was the type of impact that veteran teammates have had on him thus far in his big league career. While sharing his thoughts on Phils closer Jonathan Papelbon, the 25-year-old...

#Phillies Release Durbin, Recall Savery

In a move that the Philadelphia Phillies will regret, the team released right handed pitcher Chad Durbin and recalled Joe Savery from Triple-A. The 35 year old Durbin struggled mightily early this season after signing a $1.1 million contract with a team option for 2014. In 16 games and 16 innings he gave up 25 hits, 4 homeruns, and 17 runs(16 earned) for a 9.00 ERA. While on the...

Phillies' Chase Utley expected back mid-June

The Philadelphia Phillies placed second baseman Chase Utley on the disabled list a week ago due to a strained right oblique. At the time, the team said Utley would be sidelined for at least two to four weeks as a result of the injury. While they were initially optimistic he could be back on the shorter end of that projection, it now appears that he'll be out until the middle...

Phillies Recall Joe Savery, Release Chad Durbin

The Phillies have recalled Joe Savery from Triple-A Lehigh Valley to take the spot of Chad Durbin in the bullpen. Durbin was released after posting a 9.00 ERA through 16 innings for the Phillies. Control issues have been at the heart of Durbin’s struggles (5.06 BB/9), although he has never been incredibly successful and has put up an ERA of 5.03 for his career. Savery has been...

Philadelphia Phillies Fan Drinking Beer Through Shirt Like He Was Born To Do It

During Saturday’s Phillies game against the Brewers a fan pulled a Jedi move that created as many questions as it did answers. Shirt over the head. Beer through the shirt. Nipples exposed. Your move, Internet. …and The closeup view: (h/t Big Lead) Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

Brewers-Phillies Preview

Cole Hamels and Yovani Gallardo are front-line starters for their respective teams, but their records are unbecoming of that status as they fight through struggles. Yet both have reason to be optimistic when they square off in the opener of a three-game series between the Philadelphia Phillies and Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night. Hamels (1-8, 4.43 ERA) has exceeded his loss total...

MICHAEL MARTINEZ PHAILED US ALL

Last weekend, I defended Michael Martinez's honor. I did this because the entire phanbase bashed his call-up and since I'm an empathetic man, I felt awful for him. Fast-forward to yesterday and Michael Martinez had the chance to defend my honor and win the game for the Phillies. The stage...

This day in 1993: Phillies smack five homers in 18-1 rout of Rockies

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the 1993 Philadelphia Phillies going from worst to first and winning the National League pennant. All season long we will take a look back at each game of the 1993 season. The Phillies pounded the expansion Colorado Rockies in the thin mountain air, easily sending Tommy Greene to a 7-0 start with plenty of run support. The Phillies wrapped...

Brown’s Bombs

Hitting five homers in his last four game, Domonic Brown is on fire…and it is about time. The Phillies have been waiting for Brown to explode and reach his potential for years now. It looks like he may be right on track now. Fresh off his first Player of the Week honors, Brown may now be in the running for Player of the Month. He has been the one bright spot in an otherwise drab...

Papelbon Wins This Sibling Battle, But We'll be Back...

Photo courtesy of NESN. "Sibling Rivalry." I like that term for the little rivalry that Jonathan Papelbon has with the Red Sox. It went to a new level last night when the Red Sox were able to mount a rally against Pap, but Pap was able to finish us. Well, he's one of the best closers in the game. He's like Mariano Rivera, in that if you happen to get a win off...

Five Runs Not Enough in Loss to Brewers

Two home runs by Dom Brown weren’t enough against the Brew Crew. (PHOTO: AP) The Phillies, who were averaging just 3.4 runs per game coming into tonight’s contest,  put up five runs on Brewers starting pitcher Yovani Gallardo–but lost the game 8-5. Domonic Brown launched two home runs, but was outdone by Jonathan Lucroy who hit two homers along with a double en route to a...
