Still on a 6-8 week timetable. -Chase Utley did not play in extended spring today, but will likely DH tomorrow and Thursday as well. No word yet on when he’ll play the field. -Ryan Howard will join Chase in extended spring tomorrow, as will Jim Thome. Howard will hit but wont run. Thome could return before the end of the homestand, but Amaro doesn’t think he can play the field right now. He just has too much discomfort when at 1st base. -Laynce Nix will head to Clearwater on Thursday.Really, can Cliff Lee get a win? I’m predicting he’ll get one tonight. But I’m not even so sure about it. This Phillies team NEEDS to hit with runners in scoring position. That’s really...

Jonathan Papelbon says umpire ‘sucked,’ should be sent down to Triple-A (Video)

Jonathan Papelbon may have taken the loss as the Phillies were defeated 4-3 by the Dodgers on Monday night, but he is not taking the blame. That blame, he says, belongs to home plate umpire D.J. Reyburn. In a 3-3 tie in the ninth, Papelbon allowed a lead-off triple on a 2-2 pitch to Dodgers shortstop Dee Gordon. Papelbon thought he had strike three on the previous pitch, and naturally...

Vance Worley was limited to 75 pitches in his first start back from the DL with a sore elbow. He will pitch the remainder of the season with a bone chip, but that didn't stop him from pitching a strong four innings, considering his condition.  The Dodgers...

Phillies' Jonathan Papelbon Doesn't Take Too Kindly to Minor League Umpires

Photo: Philliedelphia/Lindsey Crew Lindsey was in the right place to catch Jonathan Papelbon after the top of the 9th inning last night en route to a Phillies 4-3 loss. As it turns out, the ball probably was not a strike, but there were issues with the umpire all night.  It appeared that since he knew he was done for the night anyway, he might as well risk an ejection.  After...
