Halladay Puts Stamp of Approval on Phils Managerial Switch

Roy Halladay, image- Jay Floyd Roy Halladay completed a moderately fair rehab effort with the Phillies’ Class A club on Tuesday night and did so with no ill effects.  However, the biggest story out of Lakewood, NJ may have been that the ace right-hander seemed to declare that the recent switch at the managerial position for the big league team was long overdue. Immediately following...

Mitch Williams throws wild ceremonial first at Phillies game (Video)

Your browser does not support iframes. Retired Philadelphia Phillies reliever Mitch Williams lived up to his "Wild Thing" nickname when he threw a poor ceremonial first pitch before Friday night's game at Citizens Bank Park. The Philly Phanatic was behind home plate to catch the ball, but the throw from Williams was a few feet wide. That prompted the Phanatic...

Phillies on Pace for Highest Player Count Since 1996

The 2013 Phillies played their 48th player last night, Roger Bernadina, on pace to be the most “unique” group of Phillies since 1996, when the Fightins had 54 different players suit up for the club. By comparison, the 2012 Phillies played 49 players in an 81-81 effort while the five-time repeating NL East Champion squads averaged just 42.2 players and most of the numbers for...

Roy Halladay Is OK With Charlie Manuel Firing, Says Phillies’ Issues ‘Were Being Overlooked’ (Video)

Roy Halladay loves Charlie Manuel. But, all the same, the rehabbing pitcher says that it was time for a change in Philadelphia. Manuel was fired as manager of the Phillies on Friday, in a lot of ways putting an end to the team’s glory days surrounding its 2008 and 2009 World Series runs. Still, Halladay, who on Tuesday was pitching for the Low-A Lakewood BlueClaws, says that the...

I really think things are coming along well. I wanted to throw 100 pitches...

Roger Bernadina in a Phillies uniform is just weird...

And so, after being released by the Nats earlier in the week, Roger Bernadina made his debut with the Phillies last night, flying out in a 7th inning pinch hitting appearance. A little trip down memory lane: That time the Shark crushed a baseball onto Eutaw Street. That time the Shark fouled a ball off a bad place, and his teammates laughed. Flying Shark! That ridiculous...

Off-season decisions are going to be tough for Colorado Rockies fans

Rockies fans are going to make tough choices if nothing changes.Chad Bettis will have to wait at least one more start before picking up his first Major League win on the mound.The rookie looked like he was going to pick up the win, giving the Colorado Rockies a split of the four game series with Philadelphia before Josh Outman, Matt Belisle, Rafael Betancourt, and Jeff Francis, of...

Roy Halladay had no problems with Charlie Manuel's firing

Charlie Manuel's firing last week was a sad day in Philadelphia, as the all-time winningest manager in Phillies history was shown the door in the midst of a miserable season. Most of the negativity was directed at Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro, who saddled Manuel with an aging team in 2013 and threw him under the bus for his own failures. One person who agreed with...

Domonic Brown pies interviewer Gregg Murphy

After last night's 5-4 walk off win by the Phillies over the Rockies, Phillies interviewer Gregg Murphy was standing by with Domonic Brown, who delievered the game winning hit. As Murphy began his interview, he warned Brown of teammate Kevin Frandsen creeping up behind him with a shaving cream pie in hand. Buuuuuuuuuut, Frandsen wasn't looking to pie Brown. He handed...

Colorado Rockies scratch out a win for Jhoulys Chacin

Jhoulys Chacin has been phenomenal all season long for the Rockies.The stat-geeks claim that pitcher's wins is one of the most overrated stats in baseball. It makes some sense, why does a pitcher who gave up one run in seven innings get a loss when his team doesn't score, then another pitcher gets a win when he gives up five runs in five innings because his team offense crushed...

Phillies Sign Roger Bernadina; Send Michael Martinez Out

A day after Jim Salisbury of Comcast Sportsnet Philadelphia reported that the Phillies were taking a look at outfielder Roger Bernadina, the Phillies signed Bernadina today.

Phillies sneak by Rockies

The Phillies have a zero percent chance of making the playoffs this season at least according to every reliable metric available. It is safe to say they have no shot at making some improbable run. Every player in the Phillies’ clubhouse knows this. And yet there seems to be a revival among the once-downtrodden Phillies. They speak about how many games are left and what they can...

Lee Looks To Go Ahead in Colorado Series

Cliff Lee is in a stretch that looks a lot like the start of his season last year. Aside from some hiccups, he's pitched fairly deep into most games and allows minimal damage but the fact that he allows any damage at all finds him in the loss or no...

Ruiz, Phillies Rally Off Brothers To Win, 4-3

Ruiz's clutch double in the ninth tied the game at three-all. Cliff Lee didn't get his 11th win Wednesday night, but he pitched well enough to keep the Phillies in the game long enough for them to walk-off with their 56th win of the season. With two outs, Chase Utley...
