Mlb-all-star-home-run
Kyle Blanks singled home the winning run in the 10th inning for his fourth hit of the game, and the San Diego Padres rallied from a three-run deficit in the ninth to beat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-3 Monday night. Blanks also had a two-run single and scored the tying run on a passed ball in the ninth as the Padres fought back against Cliff Lee and struggling closer Jonathan Papelbon. Looking for his 10th win of the season, Lee took a six-hit shutout into the ninth but lasted only three more pitches. Carlos Quentin led off with a single and went to third when Chase Headley followed with a double that ended Lee's night. On came Papelbon, who gave up a two-run single to Blanks on his first pitch.

Cafardo on Papelbon: Not Available? Don’t Believe It

Cliff Lee were not available. With his third blown save of the season, and week for that matter, yesterday, you have to wonder if some of the trade talk is wearing on Papelbon. At the same time, it is refreshing to know that outside the Phillies’ bubble, others believe that Papelbon would be available should the Phillies fall out of contention. Entering today, the Phillies are...

Phillies rumors: Tigers, Red Sox interested in Jonathan Papelbon

The trade rumors are flying in and fast. First we heard about Ricky Nolasco, then we heard about Matt Garza. Now it's Jonathan Papelbon's turn to be involved in the rumors. The Phillies are in talks with the Red Sox and Tigers about a potential deal surrounding Jonathan Papelbon, according to ESPN's Jayson Stark. Papelbon has struggled recently as he has blown...

Philadelphia Phillies: Jonathan Papelbon blows third straight save

For most of the first three months of the Major League Baseball season, Philadelphia Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon had been excellent. But for some reason, over his past few outings, the 32-year-old right-hander has fallen apart. On Monday night, Papelbon entered the bottom of the ninth inning with a 3-0 lead over the San Diego Padres. He proceeded to blow his third save in a...

Red Sox Should at Least Kick Tires on Jonathan Papelbon Trade, Evaluate Cost of Dealing for Closer

Believe it or not, July is almost here. That’s crazy to think about. It seems like just yesterday we had no idea what offseason direction the Red Sox were going to go in, and now the question is whether they’ll consider making a splash at the trade deadline as they march toward a potential division crown. The season is still young, but it’s aging fast, and the Red Sox have...

Phillies Get Papelbombed for Fourth Time in a Week

Prior to this past week, Jonathan Papelbon had converted all 13 of his save opportunities. But last night against the Padres, he dropped another bomb on the Phillies; it was his 4th blown save in his last 5 attempts. Red alert! The Phillies have been Papelbombed! Worse than that, starting pitcher Cliff Lee took a 3-0 lead into the 9th inning before the bomb dropped. After putting...

While You Were Drinking: Game 77 (SD vs. PHI)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after a night in the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking. Last night my daughter and I met up with grandpa to catch a good pitcher’s duel and for the most part Eric Stults and Cliff Lee delivered. Unfortunately Lee was better, mowing down the Padres in quick innings of work. With a 3-0 lead...

Trade Michael Young? Not So Fast; Cliff Lee, Jonathan Papelbon Not "Untouchable"

Yesterday afternoon, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports did what he usually does: wrtie about the Major League Baseball trade market. And of course, it was more about the scuffling Phillies, who appear to be the team most likely to trade someone since it, you know, makes sense. But yet, Phillies...

How Shelby Miller Resembles the Model Starting Pitcher

I don’t know if you can really understand until he’s yours. You might’ve forgotten, but Cliff Lee pitched for the Mariners once, and while I knew Lee was an ace starter beforehand, it wasn’t until I watched him every five days that I really “got” it. Lee was perfect. He wasn’t and isn’t the best starting pitcher in the world, but he’s close, and he does everything...

About Last Night: I went to bed just before the implosion in San Diego

Cliff Lee was masterful last night in San Diego. Chase Utley hit a home run, Dom Brown flashed some leather in left field and the San Diego Padres looked to be no problem for the Phillies on the start of a ten game west coast swing. With the Phillies up 3-0 entering the bottom of the ninth and it already half past midnight I was growing so tired that I just could not manage to fight...

Is Young Trade More Sensible Than Papelbon?

(Kim Klement/USA TODAY )It's obvious that the Red Sox might want to trade for a closer—but do the struggles of Will Middlebrooks suggest they need a third baseman more urgently? All the talk of late has swirled around the possibility of re-acquiring Jonathan Papelbon from Philadelphia. But Phillies GM Ruben Amaro has made it clear that the cost to get the erstwhile Boston closer...

Halladay Throwing, Red Sox/Tigers Interested in Papelbon?

Two big news items from this afternoon – the first comes from Phillies beat writer Todd Zolecki who says that Roy Halladay is feeling “good”. Zolecki notes that Halladay has been throwing from 60 ft. The Phillies are hoping Halladay will return in late August at the earliest. Rich Dubee had this to say about watching Halladay in Zolecki’s piece: “It looks very, very good...
