Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels isn’t slated to pitch during the team’s home-and-home series against the Boston Red Sox this week, so he apparently has plenty of time to engage in some tomfoolery while waiting for his next scheduled start against the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday. With that in mind, Hamels decided to don a [...]The post Cole Hamels serves as security for coach during TV interview (video) appeared first on Sportress of Blogitude.

Utley’s Bad News Makes Now Right Time to Move Brown

The news about Chase Utley was not good. The Philadelphia Phillies originally expected him back in the lineup on June 5th. GM Ruben Amaro said that will not happen. Utley still feels tenderness in his side and will likely miss an additional 15 games. While this is a setback for the Fightin’ Phils, it could also be an opportunity for the team and youngster Domonic Brown. Brown won...

Cliff Lee Could Be Pitching His Way Out of Philadelphia, Which Means Red Sox Should Be Interested (Video)

Cliff Lee is good. The Phillies? Not so much. While it remains to be seen whether Philadelphia will be a buyer or a seller at this year’s trade deadline, Cliff Lee is sure to be a name floating around in rumors until the Phils decide. That means that every outing the left-hander has is more or less an audition for any prospective teams looking for a piece to help their rotation...

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' Ben Revere day-to-day after collision with wall

He remained in the game, but Ben Revere's catch up against the wall in the fourth inning of last night's contest was frightening.  Revere tracked down a blast off the bat of David Ortiz, made the catch, but slammed into the wall.  His elbow caught into the fencing of the Fenway Park wall just right and sent Revere to the ground in a heap.  He was in obvious pain but...

Papelbon: Shipping back to Boston

The Guru Contributing Writer The last time Jonathan Papelbon walked off the mound for the Red Sox, Boston had just completed the worst collapse in team history. Less than three months later, Papelbon, the Sox all-time saves leader, walked out of Fenway for good, signing a four-year, $50 million contract with the Philadelphia Phillies. Before last night’s game Papelbon was back...

Lackey’s Contractual Quirk and Phillies Deals

John Lackey wasn’t at his best Wednesday night but he has pitched effectively for the Red Sox this season. Lackey, signed to a five-year, $82.5 million contract prior to the 2010 season, had a rocky start to his Boston tenure. After posting solid peripherals with poor run prevention marks in 2010, he posted a 6.41 ERA in 2011 before undergoing Tommy John surgery. He missed the...

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.

Blow up the Core? Signs Point to Yes.

Picture by Richard Wilkins Jr. Ryan Howard's gonna have to play through knee pain this season. Lovely. Since, you know, he's been so good. He doesn't strike out entirely too much, insist on trying to pull everything, and can play great defense. That's just the news the Phillies needed to...

Zagurski a Phucco

Last night Mike Zagurski became the latest Phucco, pitching a scoreless inning for the Pirates. This is a cause for celebration on this blog, because the Phillies sure as hell aren't giving us anything to work with.  For those of you that can't remember, Zig-Zags was a hefty lefty that pitched with the Phils from 2007-2011.  He   became known as "Fat Mike" Zagurski...
