Found September 04, 2013 on Philliedelphia:
The first inning was plenty cause for concern for Phillies fans. Roy Halladay, off a tough start in Chicago, was incredibly wild to start. In the first inning alone, Halladay allowed a hit and three walks. Yet, thanks to a sacrifice fly and a ground ball double play, Halladay escaped...

MLB prospect's embarrassing injury

You can add Phillies minor leaguer Mitch Walding to the ever-growing list of totally ridiculous MLB player injuries. 

Cameron Rupp Ready for Next Level

Cameron Rupp, Image- Jay Floyd Over the weekend, Cameron Rupp sat in the players’ lounge area of the Coca Cola Park clubhouse watching the Phillies on television. On Tuesday, he’ll be in the clubhouse at Citizens Bank Park for his first major league game. Rupp, the Phillies’ third round draft choice in 2010 out of the University of Texas, was among a collection of youngsters...

Mauricio Robles' MLB is Ugly...Like his Control

Quick to the point, to the point, no fakin'...the Phillies bullpen is horrible.  True story.  As the calendar flipped to September, rosters around Major League Baseball ballooned with expansion open to any player on the 40-man roster.  One of the Phils call-ups was Mauricio Robles, a 24 year old lefty with control problems.  In 38 innings with the Iron Pigs he walked more...

Chase Utley finally responds to Mac's letter from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia

Remember a few seasons ago on It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, when Mac wrote Chase Utley a letter that seemed like a love letter you'd write to someone in third grade? Well, Utley finally responded to the letter in the above video, explaining to Mac that he's been busy playing baseball and that's why he didn't respond. I *am* a little disappointed that...

Chase Utley Responds to Mac’s Letter From ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ (Video)

It took him five years, by Phillies star Chase Utley has finally responded to Ronald “Mac” McDonald‘s letter. Mac, one of the five main characters on FXX’s It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, wrote the Phils infielder a fan letter five years ago, which can be seen below. Dear Chase, I feel like I can call you Chase because you and me are so much alike. I would love to...

Zimmermans Prevail, Halladay Unorthodox As Philadelphia Phillies Lose To Washington Nationals

Roy Halladay is just impossible to figure out right now. He came off the disabled list nearly two weeks ago, pitched great, then got hit around in his last start this past weekend. Tonight’s start was somewhere in between, as Halladay allowed just one run to the Nationals over six innings, but Washington was able to get to the Phillies’ bullpen in the end and pull out a 3-2 victory...

Chase Utley responds to Mac’s letter from ‘Always Sunny’

Five years ago, It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia aired an episode in which Mac wrote a “love letter” to his favorite Phillies player, Chase Utley, that Utley never responded to. Until today. That’s right, Utley has finally responded to Mac’s letter from “The World Series Defense” episode in which they attempted (but miserably failed) to go to Game 5 of the 2008 World...

Phils Blow Lead, Lose Series

Doc struggled with command yet again, but gave up just one run over six innings. (PHOTO: AP) The Phillies had a 2-1 lead going into the 7th inning, after Roy Halladay had gutted out six innings of one-run baseball on the mound. But two batters later, the game was tied 2-2 after a home run by Ryan Zimmerman off Zach Miner. Then, in the 8th inning, a leadoff walk by Jake Diekman resulted...

Martin struggles again, Phils lose to Nats 9-6

Ethan Martin's future could be in the bullpen if he keeps pitching like this as a starter. Martin failed to reach five innings for the third consecutive start and the Philadelphia Phillies lost 9-6 to the Washington Nationals on Tuesday night. Wilson Ramos hit a three-run homer off Martin and Corey Brown also went deep for the Nationals to back Gio Gonzalez. Martin (2-4) allowed...

Gameday: Phillies (63-75) vs Nationals (69-68)

Philadelphia Phillies (63-75) at Washinton Nationals (69-68) Ethan Martin vs. Gio Gonzalez TIME: 7:05 ET, Citizens Bank Park TV: Comcast SportsNet Weather: 78, Clear Media: Twitter and Facebook Tonight’s game in two sentences: All you have to do is look at the lineup for tonight’s game. It’s like the Iron Pigs got on a bus and all came down together. Lineup: Hernandez 2B, Galvis...

C.C. Returns To The Tribe

No… not that CC… nor that Lee for that matter. The Indians recalled pitcher C.C. Lee Tuesday as part of baseball’s September roster expansion. Unfortunately for Cleveland fans, he does not carry the same Cy Young credentials that former Tribe aces-turned-prized-deadline-acquisitions-for-other-teams CC Sabathia and Cliff Lee do. He does, however, sport a career ERA of 0.00,...

Roy Halladay, Phillies Take On Jordan Zimmermann, Washington Nationals

Tonight the Phillies look to rebound from last night's excruciating loss in which Phillies pitchers walked nine batters and gave up nine runs. Chase Utley and Jimmy Rollins return to the lineup after a night off and Cesar Hernandez will make another start in center field. If Hernandez's bat comes...
