Was there a better player for the Philadelphia Phillies in the 1990s than Curt Schilling? Photo: Getty Images
Who was the best Philadelphia Phillie of the 1970s, Mike Schmidt or Steve Carlton? you can make a nice argument for either, although Schmidt would be a hands down winner for Phillie of the 1980s. There's not even question about that. But have you taken any time to figure out who is the best Phillies player of the 1990s? In a decade that saw only a quick flash of success in terms of wins and losses, with just one winning season taking the team all the way to a heart breaking Game Six of the World Series in 1993, it is mostly slim pickings. While a small handful of players experienced career years in Philadelphia, there is only one player who managed to turn out high quality performances for the majority of the decade.
Curt Schilling, who will be inducted to the Phillies Wall of Fame on Friday, August 2, was the best Philadelphia Phillie of the 1990s, and ...

During Saturday’s Phillies game against the Brewers a fan pulled a Jedi move that created as many questions as it did answers.

While it is going under the radar in most places, it hasn’t gone over the FFLockerRoom’s eyes. Domonic Brown had another terrific game, blasting a three-run home run, which is his eighth dinger in the last ten games.
Brown, who got off to a cold start, is now up to .282 and has 16 home runs to go along with a very solid 40 runs batted in.
It is highly unlikely, but if you haven’t...

During PHL17′s post-game wrap-up of the Phillies 7-5 victory over the Brewers, Sigourney McCleaf had a bit of a freudian slip. Attempting to talk about Cliff Lee’s 1,600th career strikeout, she somehow managed to say “Tongue ****.” Oops

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,...
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...

Leading the Phillies and the NL in home runs, Dom Brown. Who would have thought it when the season began. Heck, where would the Phillies be in the standings without Brown? Possibly fighting the Miami Marlins for the division basement. Over the past month the excitement around Brown has grown despite the Phillies struggles as a team. When asked about Brown and moving him up in the...
This was definitely a good, bad, and ugly game. However a win is a win. I think. The game started out better than any have all season. The Phillies tagged Mike Fiers for five runs in the first inning including just another three run blast from Domonic Brown. Fiers would...
