Can J-Roll change? (MLB)
It’s not hard to see a direct correlation between getting on base, scoring runs, and winning games.
Phillies Runs Scored:
2013: 464 (on pace – 606)
Phillies On-Base Percentage:
2013: .303 (as of 8/20)
2013: 55-69 (as of 8/20)
We know how each Phillies team, year-by year beginning in 2007, was constructed. From 2007 to 2009, they scored between 5 and 5.5 runs per game, while getting just enough pitching to go with the monster lineup. In 2010, the offense was still productive, but their pitching was stronger than in previous years.
In 2011, the pitching staff put up ludicrous numbers, allowing just 3.27 runs per game, while leading the club to 102 wins. It overshadowed a declining, yet just-about-good-enough offense. In 2012, it all began to fall a...

Roy Halladay loves Charlie Manuel. But, all the same, the rehabbing pitcher says that it was time for a change in Philadelphia. Manuel was fired as manager of the Phillies on Friday, in a lot of ways putting an end to the team’s glory days surrounding its 2008 and 2009 World Series runs. Still, Halladay, who on Tuesday was pitching for the Low-A Lakewood BlueClaws, says that the...

The Philadelphia Phillies' top farm club on Tuesday offered a free funeral to an eastern Pennsylvania fan recently diagnosed with ALS.
The Lehigh Valley IronPigs announced the winner of its funeral giveaway during a home game at Coca-Cola Park.
Steve Paul, 64, of Freemansburg got a standing ovation as he was wheeled onto the field and announced as the recipient of a funeral...
From the minor-league baseball club that gave you the world's first urinal gaming system comes a promotion that's more 6 feet under than it is over the top: One ''lucky'' fan will win a free funeral package.
The Triple A affiliate of the Philadelphia Phillies, the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, plans to announce the winner of its latest, and perhaps most bizarre...
It was a nice winning streak while it lasted (a whole two games). The Colorado Rockies defeated the Philadelphia Phillies by a score of 5-3 on Tuesday.
The Rockies got to Tyler Cloyd quickly. Troy Tulowitzki and Wilin Rosario homered off him in the first and third innings respectively. Cloyd lasted six innings, surrendering five earned runs. Cloyd settled down after the third...
One week ago today, Charlie Manuel managed his 1,416th regular-season game as the skipper of the Philadelphia Phillies. It was an unremarkable game in an unremarkable season, losing 6-3 to the NL East-leading Atlanta Braves. It was also Charlie Manuel’s last game as the manager of the Philadelphia Phillies. Just two days prior, Manuel won […]The post Charlie Manuel Deserved A...
A day after Jim Salisbury of Comcast Sportsnet Philadelphia reported that the Phillies were taking a look at outfielder Roger Bernadina, the Phillies signed Bernadina today. Bernadina will take the roster spot of Michael Martinez, who was optioned to AAA Lehigh Valley, reports Todd Zolecki. Bernadina was released by the...
A Phillies comeback win? Remember what that feels like? It seems like it’s been so long since we’ve seen one. Down a run going into the ninth inning, the game looked about over. But a leadoff double by Erik Kratz gave the Phillies life. Carlos Ruiz doubled in Kratz, and Michael Young finished the game with walkoff single.
Cliff Lee had his best outing in a while. It...
Cliff Lee is in a stretch that looks a lot like the start of his season last year. Aside from some hiccups, he's pitched fairly deep into most games and allows minimal damage but the fact that he allows any damage at all finds him in the loss or no...
Well, it took a few days, but the Phillies finally squeaked out a win for interim manager Ryne Sandberg. The 3-5 win over the Dodgers ended yet another long losing streak for the Phils who are now solidly in 4th place in the NL East, 2.5 games behind the Mets for 3rd place.
Getting this win against the hottest team in baseball was going to require a combination of things to occur...
Roger Bernadina is officially a Phillie. He of a .178 batting average and .517 OPS this season. He's been a passable 4th outfielder in the past with the Nationals, but not in 2013. Hence being released.Amaro is doing a helluva job fielding the worst team possible. He's give Casper Wells (.150/.380), John McDonald (.093/.336), and recently demoted Michael Martinez...
