Is This Chase Utley’s Last Hurrah?

Is 2013 the last time we’ll see Chase Utley in a Phillies uniform? Last week, I was having a discussion with an old friend about the upcoming Phillies season when he posed a question to me: Do you re-sign Chase Utley after 2013? “Ask me in six months,” was my concise, detached response. This type of exchange is not exclusive to my friend and me. All over the Delaware Valley...

Cole Hamels has a mustache, and it's glorious

During Friday's exhibition game at Citizens Bank Park between the Blue Jays and Phillies, CSN Philadelphia cameras caught a glimpse of Phillies Opening Day starter Cole Hamels in the dugout. Hamels, who sported a beard for most of the spring, shaved the beard off...but left his mustache, giving himself a stache that Tom Selleck would be proud of. Hopefully, the mustache sticks...

Forbes: Phillies Valued At $893 Million

Forbes released their annual baseball team valuations today and the Phillies come in at number five for the second consecutive year, with their current value measured at $893 million.  Despite staying put in the rankings, the number is a 23.5 percent increase over last year’s valuation of $723 million (which was a 19 percent bump from 2011). Team valuations are up throughout the...

Phillies aim to prove last year was aberration

For a team that finished 17 games out of first place, the Philadelphia Phillies are quite confident they can regain the NL East crown they relinquished to Washington after a five-year run. ''The Nationals had a great year last year, but we had a lot of injuries,'' slugger Ryan Howard said. ''Call us old if you want to. If you want to sweep us under the rug...

Blue Jays 1, Phillies 0

Cliff Lee finished up spring training by having a little fun. Soon after pitching four sharp innings against Toronto in his final tuneup, the Philadelphia ace teamed up with Cole Hamels and joined the Phillie Phanatic in shooting hot dogs into the stands. ''I asked if I could jump in there and get close to that action and see what it was all about,'' Lee said after...

Brewers sign INF Betancourt to 1-year deal

Infielder Yuniesky Betancourt has signed a one-year deal with the Milwaukee Brewers, rejoining the team he helped win the 2011 NL Central title. The Brewers announced the contract Wednesday. The 31-year-old Betancourt was in spring training earlier this year with Philadelphia and batted .447 in 18 games while mostly playing shortstop. The Phillies already have All-Stars all around...

3/28 Phillies Roster Projections: No Changes

Yesterday I did a roster prediction for every team that is breaking camp in the Phillies system this week. Today I have no changes. Today they did play, and they did win their finale in Florida, a 7-2 win over the Blue Jays. The Phillies finish the Grapefruit schedule 16-15,...

Will demotion help Jays' Romero?

He could be Roy Halladay. He could be Dontrelle Willis. His organization, his teammates and his family will do all they can to support him. But Ricky Romero's future is in the hands of Ricky Romero. The Toronto Blue Jays sent Romero to Class A Dunedin Tuesday, which was both utterly shocking and not surprising at all; shocking because Romero made the All-Star team in 2011, not...
