Howard Changing the Conversation?

The Big Piece is showing signs of his 2009 form. Photo by: Ian Riccaboni Pop quiz: Over the last seven days, which Phillie has led the team in on-base percentage? How about the last 14 days? 30 days?

Weekend Recap: Have you seen enough?

Before the Phillies embarked on a 10-game road trip I laid out my expectations if I was to continue to believe this team might be capable of turning things around enough to make a postseason push something worth considering possible. As I reiterated last Monday, that was for the Phillies to pick up no fewer than six wins with stops in Milwaukee, Minnesota and Colorado. Seven wins...

Fun With Google — Or, a Retelling of a Potential Nightmare

Most of these blog ideas start off with a weird tangent.  In today’s case, Roobs made an off-hand statement that Cubs fans seem to prefer Ruben Amaro Jr. as their general manager.  Amaro is now the GM of the Philadelphia Phillies, who as recently as a couple years ago were perennial contenders with a strong core that has since faded.  The core of that team was built by Pat Gillick...
