GETS NO RELIEF
Philadelphia Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon openly questioned the composition of the team, saying, "Since I've been here I haven't seen any leadership."
Phillies spring training games start in just a few days, and taking a look at Phillies tickets prices for the 2013 season shows some interesting things. This might be hard to believe, but the average price of spring training tickets is higher than that of regular season tickets. According to Seat Crunch, the average price of Phillies spring training tickets is $107.80; almost ...
I Love the Phillies, especially the 2012 team.
I grew up a Phillies fan having gone to my first game back in 1983 at Veterans Stadium. I got a patch that night in celebration of 100 years of baseball with different “P’s” on each base. It’s one of my most cherished baseball possessions; but even more important to me are the memories of my dad taking me to the ballpark and...

Adams who had a condition called thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS) that caused weakness in his pitching arm and numbness had surgery...
The starter’s bullets will be dwindling this April, and the manager of the Philadelphia Phillies will be counting the outs to Jonathan Papelbon. For the most part, this will determine who begins to warm up.

Grapefruit is the most disgusting of all fruits, but if you were starving in the desert, you would eat the **** out of it. That’s kinda what today is like for Phillies fans. Sure, not everyone is starting, (but hey Utley and Howard are!) and Cole Hamels will likely throw about 15 pitches before calling it a day. That said, it’s a lot more baseball than we’ve enjoyed for a couple...

Since I have been here, I haven’t seen any leadership
Jonathan Papelbon, February 22, 2013
I wish I could have written about this quote sooner. But, to be honest, I don’t think there is much to say; I believe Papelbon’s misspoke during a period of quick reflection. A reflection on a season’s worth of disappointments that are understandable when compared to the high expectations...
