Found July 23, 2012 on Philliedelphia:
Roy Halladay returned to Citizens Bank Park for the first time since coming off the disabled list during the Dodgers series. He would face Randy Wolf and the Milwaukee Brewers.  It didn't start out on a good note for Doc. In the first inning, Carlos Gomez was able to score on a double from Aramis Ramirez. Corey Hart later brought home Ramirez with an RBI single, giving the Brew Crew an early 2-0 lead. The Phillies would soon tie it up. In the bottom of the first, Chase Utley and Ryan Howard went back-to-back with solo homer's to make it an even ballgame. The Phils would continue the game without Shane Victorino who was plunked in the bottom of the first and was taken out due to bruising on his elbow.  In the top of the third, Ryan Braun singled to score Carlos Gomez. It wasn't a secret that Roy Halladay wasn't looking very sharp, and his low velocity said so, along with his quickly escalating pitch count. The fourth inning brought about an even bigger mess for ...

But at least part of me was inspired by Eric Milton’s excellence.  Here is Phillies Nation’s first post: Milton Perfect though 8 1/3 What...

Phillies could trade Cole Hamels after all

Earlier this week, we learned that the Philadelphia Phillies and left hander Cole Hamels were working towards a long-term deal. And today, Joel Sherman of the New York Post said that Hamels hasn't accepted their offer yet increasing the likelihood of him being traded.

What You Need to Know: Wednesday, July 25 by Daniel Rathman

The Tuesday Takeaway All eyes, from fans’ to scouts’, were on Zack Greinke when the Brewers ace took the mound last night at Citizens Bank Park. His team had lost four straight and was seven games under .500 coming into the second game of the series in Philadelphia, but Greinke was pitching less for the Brewers of today and more for the Brewers of tomorrow. Apparently felled...

Dugout Digest - setting the market

You cannot blame Zack Greinke for the Brewers' 7-6 loss in Philadelphia last night. Greinke dominated the Phillies, allowing just one run over seven innings on three hits, striking out five while walking none. He was pulled after seven innings and 87 pitches, with Milwaukee holding a 6-1 lead. Then, the bullpen took over, and all hell broke loose. Jose Veras allowed a...
