Achillies heels have been the Phillies' Achillies heel the last couple seasons. After Ryan Howard's tear at the last out of the 2011 playoffs, Domonic Brown has his own issues. Brown's season could be in doubt now after tendonitis has been diagnosed in Brown's Achillies heel. Yesterday, Todd Zolecki reported:...

Freddy Galvis Walks It Off

Freddy Galvis, who homered to give the Phillies the victory, is interviewed after receiving a shaving cream pie. (Photo Credit: AP) Freddy Galvis had a night to remember.  With Jimmy Rollins having the night off, Galvis had a chance to prove his worth.  He did just that as he went 4-for-5, including a walk-off home run. Kyle Kendrick pitched well for the Phillies, lasting six innings...

Chooch and the Qualifying Offer

The Phillies have a multitude of roster-related problems to solve this offseason, as Ian Riccaboni pointed out, but the catching situation is perhaps the most interesting. Carlos Ruiz is set to become a free agent, and while his early struggles rendered his return less likely, his .330/.375/.536 line since August 1 makes him an attractive option. While prospects Tommy Joseph and...

2014 Preview of Phillies Offense Before 2013 is Over?

Reports have Ryan Howard and Ben Revere heading to the Florida Instructional League, in hopes of playing for the Phillies again before the season is over.  Dom Brown is also nursing a bruised Achilles, but will likely continue his quest for 30 homeruns before game 162 is played.  All three play prominently into the club's 2014 plans.  Should they return before 2013 wraps up...

#Phillies in Game Question: Should Kendrick Stay or Go?

Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Kyle Kendrick just had yet another pedestrian performance tonight against the Braves. As the Phillies rebuild for 2014, should Kyle Kendrick be part of their plans or should they move on from the enigmatic right hander?

Asche leads Phillies over Braves

Cody Asche hit a two-run homer in the seventh inning and Cliff Lee outdueled fellow left-hander Mike Minor as the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Atlanta Braves 2-1 on Friday night. After surrendering a homer to Andrelton Simmons leading off the third inning, Lee (12-6) didn't allow a hit through eight innings. He finished with 10 strikeouts without a walk, giving up just two...

Phillies Demote Pitcher Ethan Martin To The Bullpen

This was one of the more obvious moves. Despite all of Twitter and even the Phillies own broadcasters constantly remarking that Ethan Martin is better suited for the bullpen, the Phillies finally made such a move: Ethan Martin to bullpen. Cloyd to take his spot. — Todd Zolecki (@ToddZolecki) September...

Phillies’ Domonic Brown shut down with tendinitis

Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Domonic Brown has been diagnosed with tendinitis after suffering an Achilles tendon injury. Because of this, he will be shut down indefinitely but it most likely will be at least a week before he gets reevaluated. Brown initially said that he would not be back “for a while”. I would not be surprised if the Phillies just shut him down for the rest...

Phils Snatch Victory From Braves

Cliff Lee was brilliant tonight. (Photo: AP) For a long time, it seemed like the Phillies were going to lose tonight, and then, just like that, they didn’t. A quick swing of Cody Asche’s bat, and a great effort from Cliff Lee, and the Phils found themselves a 2-1 victory over the first place Braves. OUR HERO, CODY ASCHE - For a long time, it looked bleak tonight. Not much happened...

Galvis homers in ninth to lift Phils over Braves

Freddy Galvis hit a game-ending homer with one out in the ninth inning to lift the Philadelphia Phillies to a 6-5 win over the Atlanta Braves on Saturday night. Atlanta had trailed 5-3 going into the ninth but Andrelton Simmons hit a two-out two-run homer off Jonathan Papelbon (5-1) who blew his seventh save in 32 opportunities. Galvis who had four hits got Papelbon the win by...

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...

Chooch's 3 RBIs, Freddy's Walkoff Propel Phillies Win

Photo Credit: Andrew Gillen After the pitching matchup we saw dominate last night, tonight's game looked to have a bit more scoring. Kyle Kendrick has been highly inconsistent in his last dozen starts, with most of them being of the disappointing variety. Alex Wood, having a competitive season from all...

Gameday: Braves (85-54) vs. Phillies (63-77)

Atlanta Braves (85-54) vs. Philadelphia Phillies (63-77)  Cliff Lee (11-6, 3.09) vs Mike Minor (13-5, 3.08) Time: 7:05 ET, Citizens Bank Park TV: Comcast SportsNet Weather: 72, clear Media: Twitter and Facebook With 84 wins, the Atlanta Braves have the best record in baseball.  First place is safe for the Braves, as they have a significant 14-game lead over the Washington...

Cliff Lee and Cody Asche Lead Win in Philly

Photo Credit: Andrew Gillen With the minor league-esque lineup the Phillies have been putting out lately, it's no suprise that many of the games are low-scoring pitchers duels. Then, when a matchup of Cliff Lee vs. Mike Minor comes along, a 150-minute game is completely possible. A Chris Johnson single...

Cliff Lee, Mike Minor Open Up Weekend Series In Philly

The Phillies are coming off of a 1-2 series loss to the Nationals this past week. After losing Wednesday night's game 3-2, the Phillies got an off day before beginning this weekend's series with the first place Braves. Cliff Lee (11-6, 3.09 ERA) will take on the Braves as they...

Week in Review

As Labor Day passes by and fans turn their attention to football, non-competitive often takes a back seat. With the Philadelphia Phillies sitting 21.5 games out of first place, this sort of situation is not one that Phillie fans have been accustomed too these last five years. Nonetheless, they followed up a series loss against […]
