Found October 02, 2012 on We Should Be GM's:
BJ Rosenberg gets the start tonight. He's quietly lowered his ERA by nearly cutting it in half from 13.09 (on September 1st) to 6.86, thanks to 7 consecutive scoreless appearances, spanning 10 innings.Expect tonight to seem more like a Spring Training game rather than an October baseball. The Nationals have nothing left to play for and will likely rest their regulars the final two games of the season, along with giving their starting pitchers short outings. The Phillies on the other hand might continue trotting out Michael Martinez in the starting lineup due to a J-Roll injury and Manuel not caring. Obviously this is much watch television. Sorry New Girl.

Phillies drop penultimate game of 2012 season

The Phillies will have to wait about 15 more hours if they want their 10th straight winning season.The Phils fell to the Nationals 4-2 in Game 161 of the 2012 season. Darin Ruf accounted for both runs with a pair of solo homers. He’s been a bright spot over the last week, hitting in eight straight games and slugging .774 with two doubles, a triple and two homers in his 11-game...

Philadelphia Phillies storyline: Center of attention

Does Darin Ruf alter the plans for the Philadelphia Phillies in the off-season?  Or can he add to the offensive power from the right side?

Was Phillies Ruiz Their 2012 MVP?

The Phillies 2012 season ended with a quiet 81-81 whimper.  To say that this season was a disappointment for Phillies fans is a major understatement. But it is time to look for the highlights of the 2012 season.  A review of the Phillies play leads me to just two players that could be the Phillies 2012 MVP. Pitcher Cole Hamels had a career high 17 wins this season and could have...

Phillies fire 3 coaches; More changes coming?

The Philadelphia Phillies finished their season with a loss to the division champion Washington Nationals today. With the loss, the Phillies dropped to 81-81. After winning 102 games last year, this was most certainly a disappointment. As is usually the case when a team under performs, changes are made.The Phillies informed bench coach Pete Mackanin, 1B/INF coach Sam Perlozzo and...

Philadelphia Phillies storyline: Traded away

Darin Ruf has caught the eye of everybody who claims the Philadelphia Phillies as their team.  But that would not have been the case without the departure of 2 regulars in the outfield.TAL’S HANDY CAPS WELCOME, NEWCOMERS:I will publish after every battle that is not washed out.  I will have many summer-long highlights of puzzle pieces, especially important after drubbings and...

Phillies won't be an easy fix

The only more appropriate way for the Philadelphia Phillies' season to end would have been if it was more like 2011, when Ryan Howard fell to the ground in agony after rupturing his left Achilles tendon. The 2012 Phillies were bruised and battered with injuries all season, from Chase Utley's knees to Roy Halladay's shoulder to Howard's aforementioned foot. But the...

Video: Jimmy Rollins says "with us healthy, they’re a second-place team"

Enjoy the video above (via CSN Philly), in which Jimmy Rollins takes a cheap parting shot at the Nats on his way to watching the MLB postseason from his couch just like the rest of us, says the Nats would've been 2nd place if not for injuries: "They had a good year. They’re a talented team. It’s all come together for them and that’s great for them. ...With us healthy...

The End

May the Philadelphia Phillies 2012 season rest in peace.

Phillies fire 3 coaches after 81-81 season

Immediately after finishing with a .500 record, the Philadelphia Phillies fired first base coach Sam Perlozzo, bench coach Pete Mackanin and hitting coach Greg Gross. The club announced the changes after its season ended with a 3-1 loss at the Washington Nationals on Wednesday. The Phillies finished 81-81 and in third place in the NL East, ending a run of five consecutive division...

Trading Places: Phillies Out; Nationals In

Watching the Phillies win a game against the Nationals last night and seeing the Nationals celebrate instead was like being in the Twilight Zone. Not many teams get to pop the champagne after a loss. But before the game even ended, the Nats were celebrating as the Braves lost, making Washington the new National League East Champs. It was quite a role reversal for the Phillies who...

Phillies cut two more from coaching staff

The Phillies will not bring back bench coach Pete Mackanin or hitting coach Greg Gross for the 2013 coaching staff, reports Todd Zolecki, via Twitter. Bench coach Pete Mackanin and hitting coach Greg Gross also will not be back next season. — Todd Zolecki (@ToddZolecki) October 3, 2012 With the earlier news of Sam Perlozzo not coming back, the Phillies have already cut ties...

The Phils offense give Cole Hamels his career-high 17th win as they defeat the Marlins, 4-1.

Cole Hamels wins his career-high 17th start as they Phils defeat the Marlins, 4-1. The Phils took the lead in the first as, with two men on, and with nobody out, Chase Utley hits a sacrifice fly, scoring Jimmy Rollins, who had started the game off with a walk, then reached third base on Juan Pierre’s single, as he beat center fielder Gorkys Hernandez’s throw, while Pierre would...

Mike Schmidt wishes today's players would have more legible autographs

They don't make bats the way they used to. They don't make the baseballs the way they used to. They don't play the game the way they used to. And they don't sign autographs the way they used to. Wait, what? Philadelphia Phillies legend Mike Schmidt seems disappointed about the way today's players take time to sign autographs, writing in a column for the Associated...
