Storyline: Grab Bag of Tricks for the Philadelphia Phillies

Using 20/20 hindsight, players were available on the market for the Philadelphia Phillies besides Mike Adams. There were other third basemen, outfielders and relievers. Why didn’t Ruben Amaro Jr. corral them? TAL’S HANDY CAPS Welcome, Newcomers: This article represents the thinking of a baseball man in my opinion. Most fans do not consider the budget, prospects on the radar...

Kyle Kendrick's amusing attempt to kick a fair ball foul (VIDEO)

Phillies starter Kyle Kendrick tried one of the oldest tricks in the book but — considering over 31,000 fans and one eagle-eyed umpire inside Nationals Park were watching the whole thing  — it's no surprise he didn't get away with it. On a Steve Lombardozzi bunt, Kendrick deliberately — and obviously — kicks the slow-rolling ball foul and, although his planned strategy...

Kendrick loses again, Phillies fall to Nationals

Kyle Kendrick's winless streak continued just like it started, with a short outing and a loss in Washington. Kendrick dropped his fifth straight decision and allowed all of the Nationals' runs as the Philadelphia Phillies lost 6-1 Friday night in the opener of a three-game set. ''I just didn't do my job tonight,'' Kendrick said. ''I didn'...

Oh Roy Halladay, Where Art Thou?

Roy Halladay has made three starts since rejoining the rotation following a DL stint due to shoulder surgery.  He's been okay, but not good.  His ERA and WHIP are mediocre, but the other numbers are worse (more BB than K, 4 HBP, % strikes thrown).  Also, he's only averaging about 87 mph with his fastball.Three Start Total:Pitches - 267Strikes - 160 (60%)Innings - 17Walks...

Kyle Kendrick fails horribly at being sneaky

If Kyle Kendrick was just a tad bit more covert, I’m sure this would have worked…

Halladay failing to command 3 of 4 pitches

Roy Halladay is running out of time to figure things out. Halladay who on Thursday starts for the fourth time since returning from shoulder surgery on Aug. 25 has made the Phillies’ eventual decision on his future no easier these last few weeks. He’s tossed two quality starts in three tries but there wasn’t much quality in the last one. Last Wednesday vs. the Nationals Halladay...

Ruben Amaro Jr. Gets Endorsement From Phillies President David Montgomery

Phillies President David Montgomery has not said very much since the dismissal of Charlie Manuel as Phillies manager last month. Plenty of fans since then have placed blame on the Phillies' General Manager Ruben Amaro, Jr. But Montgomery is not considering any changes. He almost appears to have missed the...

The Phillies Are Eliminated From Playoff Contention

It's a good thing the Phillies have had so many shaving cream celebrations this season, because they will not be getting a playoff celebration. The Phillies were mathematically eliminated this afternoon when Cincinnati won. — Matt Gelb (@magelb) September 14, 2013 Darn. At least they'll have the memories. Oh, and...

Padres fall 10-5 to Phillies

Tyson Ross came into Citizens Bank Park riding a hot streak. It took less than one inning for that to come to a screeching halt.

Ross...

Phillies hold off Nationals for 5-4 win

It's not every day a manager intentionally puts the potential winning run on base in the ninth inning against a red-hot offense.

Reliever Jonathan Papelbon retired Wilson Ramos on hard grounder to short and the Phillies held on for a 5-4 win over the...
