After being designated for assignment last week and refusing Triple-A assignment the Phillies cut ties with outfielder Laynce Nix. It was a disappointing two seasons with the Phillies organization for Nix who hit just .211/.270/.331 in his time with the club. Also two rehab notes: Roy Halladay takes a huge...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
I was searching for something on Darin Ruf, since he's one of the few good things going for the Phillies right now, and I came across this video from last year. He seems like a levelheaded guy and I hope he can continue to improve defensively in the outfield, because the Phils need his bat in the lineup. Perhaps he secures a starting gig for next season, along with Revere and...

Outfielder Tyson Gillies is batting .306 with four doubles, a homer and three steals in 10 August games. Overall with the IronPigs this season, the 24-year-old Canadian is batting .217 with...
As we suggested at the beginning of last week, Roy Halladay's return to the Philadelphia Phillies' rotation is looking more and more imminent. After a successful simulated game yesterday, Halladay may be starting a minor league rehab assignment this upcoming week. That would be the final hurdle before returning to the rotation.

The title explains it all Philadelphia Phillies rookie starting pitcher Ethan Martin makes his third career start tonight against his hometown team that he grew up watching in the Atlanta Braves. One player that Martin won’t have to face tonight is Braves second baseman Dan Uggla who is on the 15 day disabled list for eye surgery.
There are reports that a man fell from the upper deck at Turner Field, the home of the Atlanta Braves, Monday night.
This just in: Philadelphia Phillies skipper Charlie Manuel has dentures. Of course, the fact that a 69-year-old man would require the aforementioned dental apparatus hardly is surprising. What is off-putting, though, is how Manuel elected to play around with them while leaning against the railing of the dugout during Philly’s game against the Atlanta Braves […]The post Watching...
Phillies’ skipper Charlie Manuel was having a few issues with his dentures during Monday’s game between his club and the Braves. Once you see it, it can not be unseen. Apologies.

Behind the complete game pitching of Cole Hamels, the Phils give their manager Charlie Manuel his 1000th career win as a manager, as they also end their road losing streak, as they defeat the Braves, 5-1.
The Phils took the lead in the top of the third as, with a runner on third, and with one man out, Jimmy Rollins hits an RBI single, scoring Cole Hamels, who had just tripled, giving...
Since there were no good images from today's game, I figured Cliff Lee's disappointment would say it all. Assuming you had the same prediction as any other baseball fan for today's Phillies-Nationals matchup, you were correct. The Stephen Strausberg we've seen dominate teams across the league appeared today in Nationals...
Reading 7, Binghamton 6
The Reading Fightin Phils scored two runs in the bottom of the ninth inning, including the game-winner on a wild pitch by Jeff Walters, to beat the Binghamton Mets, 7-6, on Tuesday night at FirstEnergy Stadium. The B-Mets overcame an early deficit with a two-out, four-run rally in the seventh, but allowed three unanswered runs in their fifth walk-off loss...

From the Phillies Facebook Charlie Manuel gets ripped for lots of things- playing Michael Martinez, bad in-game moves, not being willing to move certain players in the order, and more. He mostly deserves those shots, and soon those things will end- I see no way that Charlie is back in...
