Get Cheap Phillies vs Rockies tickets from TiqIQ

It hasn’t been the start the Phillies were looking for, but with the Rockies coming to town for a three game series starting on Tuesday this is a good opportunity for the Phillies to get back to their winning ways. Phillies Nation and TiqIQ have taken the hassle out of scouring the web for tickets by aggregating multiple ticket sellers into one format. Whether you want to score...

Phillies Get Swept Out Of Canada

Jim Thome makes home run history. Losing 6-2 to the Toronto Blue Jays capped off the Phillies 12th loss in 15 games and the third time they have been swept in a series this season. Thome makes history – Jim Thome hit his fourth home run of the season in the second inning becoming just the fourth player to hit at least 100 home runs with three different teams.  The other three...

Phillies must sell GM on being a buyer at trade deadline

For Charlie Manuel, Christmas Day might as well be July 29 instead of December 25. In each of the last three years, Manuel has seen general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. making a pre-trade deadline deal on that date. In 2009, Amaro reeled in Cliff Lee. In 2010, it was Roy Oswalt who arrived. In 2011, Hunter Pence followed Oswalt's path from Houston to Philadelphia. But as the Phillies...

Phillies Lose Again, Manuel Goes Off

Yesterday the Phillies lost to the Toronto Blue Jays for the second straight day. The Phils blew a three run lead in the eight inning, and Cliff Lee remains winless. Rather than posting stats about yesterday's loss, I will save you the trouble of getting aggravated. After the game, Charlie Manuel ripped into the team: “We don’t get it done. We can’t play in the moment...

Phils Extra-Inning Woes Continue As They Fall To Jays

It's June 16, and Cliff Lee is still without a win. (AP) For the third time in a row, the Phillies were able to get a lead with Cliff Lee on the mound, and for the third time in a row, they’d end up losing the game. This time, it was a painful loss in extra innings, as the Blue Jays prevailed 6-5 in ten innings. Defense was the coup de grace today for a Phillies team that can’t...

Thome heads back to bench for slumping Phillies

The Philadelphia Phillies fell to six games under .500 on Sunday for the first time since April 2007, when they were a franchise in the midst of a 13-year playoff drought, not a National League titan that had reeled off five straight division titles, two NL pennants and a World Series championship. With a 6-2 loss to theToronto Blue Jays, the Phils were swept for the second time...

Cole Hamels wearing these hilarious pants highlights Victorino fashion show (pics/vid)

On Monday evening, the 2012 Shane Victorino Foundation Fashion Show gala event was held and I am sure a grand time was had by one and all as funds were raised for the Philadelphia Phillies outfielder’s esteemed charitable foundation. Several of Victorino’s Phillies teammates and their spouses were in attendance, but perhaps no two individuals [...]

Cole Hamels Sets New Standards in Fashion at Shane Victorino's Charity Show (Photos)

Of all the selfless acts that celebrities and athletes do in the name of charity, perhaps none should be admired more than the way their image can take a hit for a good cause. Then again, maybe Cole Hamels just likes to dress like this. Hamels sported a variety of outfits during the third annual All-Star Celebrity Fashion Show on Monday night in Philadelphia, held by Shane Victorino...

Sinking Fast, Phillies Still Have Options To Right The Ship

Cliff Lee isn't the only one hanging his head in the Phillies dugout these days after a frustrating 31-37 start has the team nine games out of 1st place. (AP) The 2012 version of the Phillies has so far been unrecognizable. The team has lost its swagger, and they’re playing poorly in all facets of the game. Suddenly, a team that never lost late, never faced a deficit it couldn’t...

Here's What I Think...

- I think that Cliff Lee doesn't have a win because 1) the team has generally played like garbage this year and especially during Lee's starts and that has cost him wins 2) Lee hasn't pitched well enough in some games to get the win.The reason I felt the need to make the above statement is due to the recent increased intensity of the argument between those who feel that...

Billy the Philly Fan – Step Up Phillies

Billy the Philly Fan and Steve from My Two Cents rant about the Philadelphia Phillies losing ways.

Toronto beats Phillies to finish of a sweep

TORONTO - With just four wins thus far in June, the next few weeks could determine whether the Philadelphia Phillies are buyers or sellers as the trade deadline at the end of July approaches. Colby Rasmus hit a home run and had three RBIs as the Toronto Blue Jays (34-32) completed a sweep of the visiting Phillies with a 6-2 win on Sunday. The Phillies are heading home for a...

Rockies-Phillies Preview

A visit from the Colorado Rockies might be what the struggling Philadelphia Phillies need to end their latest rough stretch. The Phillies look to snap a six-game home skid and continue their recent dominance over the Rockies on Tuesday night. A sweep at the hands of Toronto to complete a 3-6 interleague trip added to the frustration surrounding the Phillies (31-37), who have lost...
