Found April 28, 2013 on FF Locker Room:
The Philadelphia Phillies have reinstated catcher Carlos Ruiz how has been out due to suspension after serving a 25-game Adderall suspension. He is good to go and should resume a solid bat in the Phillies lineup. To make room for him, Philadelphia designated catcher Humberto Quintero. Last season Ruiz smacked out 16 home runs in 114 games.

Adding Ruiz without Aderall: what will Phillies get?

Carlos Ruiz returns to the Phillies today and he will do so without his long lost friend Aderall. Although it might be a fun drug at parties or to cram for a big exam for college students, Aderall doesn't exactly scream baseball. Aderall doesn't improve bat speed, it doesn't add distance on home runs, and it doesn't help players rebound quicker from injuries. But...

No smoke and mirrors: Kyle Kendrick is the real deal

Like a father watching his son ride a bike on his own for the first time, I am super proud of Kyle Kendrick and you should be, too. Or, as Jim Salisbury put it, "Kyle Kendrick has become a man." The ups and downs in Kendrick's career are like a bike ride through the Appalachian Trail: minor leaguer-turned major leaguer-turned playoff starter in 2007; major leaguer...

Galvis, Howard Power Hamels to First Win, Sweep of Mets

Howard came up big in the clutch in a 5-1 Phils win to cap the sweep. Photo: Seth Wenig, AP On a day where Cole Hamels struggled with control, issuing six free passes, Hamels kept his composure to pick up his first win of 2013 in a 5-1 Phillies win. Hamels allowed only two hits to limit the damage of his free passes on a day where the Mets struck early on a David Wright RBI single...

Hamels Gets 1st Win as Chooch Returns for Sweep of Mets

Perhaps it is fitting that Cole Hamels did not get his first win of the season until the day Carlos Ruiz returned from a 25-game suspension.  Throughout the weekend, the Phillies suddenly began to show signs of life.  Maybe a lot of that had to do with the anticipation of Chooch’s return. After losing 3 of 4 to the Pirates, the Phils proceeded to storm New York and sweep the...

How many wins for the 2013 Phillies?

Former Phils give us something to laugh about

Feeling down about the Phillies on a miserable Monday? If you are a glass half-empty kind of guy, you might take pleasure in knowing that some former Phils are having really bad seasons. Just to give you a basis for the truly alarming numbers you are about to see, keep in mind that the league average for WHIP is 1.31 and Chad Qualls had a 1.53 WHIP last season for the Phils.

Sweep Success

Cole Hamels took the mound on Sunday looking for his first win of the young 2013 season. His team was coming off two straight wins against the Mets at Citi Field, and looking for their first series sweep of the year.

Series Preview: Phillies at Indians 4/30-5/1

  Philadelphia Phillies (12-14) at Cleveland Indians (?-?)  Series 9, Games 24 and 25 Progressive Field, Cleveland: 1.061, Hitters park Series Overview Heading into this season, the Phillies are caught in an in-between state and like the Indians, should rebuild in my opinion.

3 Up & 3 Down: Frustrated By The Phillies Edition

In last weekend’s edition of 3&3, I cautioned to watch out for a Dodger’s team that was struggling. That warning should have been extended to this weekend’s series with the Phillies as well. Against two teams that have been struggling, our Mets finished 1-5. Looks like our team is fast becoming a cure to another team’s slump. 3 UP Kyle’s Complete Game: We don’t like...

Phillies Week 4 In Review

After an encouraging end to last week, one in which the team took two out of three games against the St. Louis Cardinals, the Phillies fell flat on their faces against the Pittsburgh Pirates. They would lose three out of four and in ugly fashion. Jonathan Pettibone made his major league debut on Monday night [...]
