Today before the Phillies' loss to the Miami Marlins, Phillies General Manager Ruben Amaro met with reporters. They learned that Chase Utley would not play third base before season's end, Scott Franzke reported on the Phillies radio broadcast.
The reason was that there simply was not enough time to determine anything. Going into tonight the Phillies had just six games remaining.
This does not preclude a move in the future.

The empty hot corner will probably belong to someone other than Chase Utley for the Philadelphia Phillies in April. Who would be better than Freddy Galvis?

Why I love the Phillies, well it’s quite simple. I love the Phillies because it’s a major connection to my family and from where my family came from.

The Philadelphia Phillies are winding toward the conclusion of this largely disappointing season. In a couple of games, maybe even 1, the Phillies will be eliminated from postseason play for the first time since 2006. It was a good run. But is it over? That is one of several questions facing Phillies brass as they move toward next season.
The Phillies will deem this offseason as...
The Phillies playoff run is officially over after losing to the Marlins 2-1 last night. It was another “walk-off” loss for the Phillies their 12th this season, personifying the season. No hitting and poor relief pitching ,a formula in many of the Phillies losses and what needs to be addressed in the off-season.
We all new it was coming but I have to admit it still hurts. From...
The Philadelphia Phillies began the season believing it could be like each of the previous five, with an NL East title and a chance to win the World Series.
For the first time in six years, though, they won't even have the opportunity to finish as champions.

Tyler Cloyd of the Philadelphia Phillies is their newest rotation member. How do other recent additions in the NL East match up with him? The Apocalyptic Horsemen Stats are in my recent coverage linked below.

Another evening, another Bryce Harper first inning home run, another Nationals win over the Phillies. Last night’s victim was Tyler Cloyd. It was Harper’s 21st home run of his rookie year.
If this season went on a little longer, Harper would put up some eye-popping numbers. The bomb was his 94th run scored on the season. Remember, the guy didn’t come up until a month into...
Seems fitting, no?
According to many reports, including MLB.com's Todd Zolecki, Ryan Howard is done for the season with a broken toe. It seems he broke it by accidentally dropped his on-deck circle lead pipe on it.
Darin Ruf will start at first base for the Phillies tonight in Miami.
MIAMI -- After a rough start, Roy Halladay finished his final outing of the season on a positive note. Halladay (11-8) allowed four runs, three in the first inning, in five innings to help the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Miami Marlins 9-5 Saturday. "The first inning was obviously pretty sloppy," Halladay said. "I felt like after that it got better, we scored...
The Phillies were officially eliminated from October playoff baseball last night, as they arrived to their tragic number of 0. Here's how the rest of the season will pan out:

Carlos Lee's game-winning single in the bottom of the ninth inning lifted the Miami Marlins to a 2-1 win over Philadelphia and eliminated the Phillies from playoff contention Friday night.

Final: Phillies 1, Marlins 2.

A September game consisting of two non-contending teams definitely will draw minimal interest from the media and the respective city's fans. Both teams tonight, with nothing to play far, hardly brought anything to the table.
The Phillies were trailing 1-0 heading into the...
