Injury Updates: Phillies Will Be Using the Disabled List; One Current Reliever To Be Cut?

The Phillies’ outfield...

John Mayberry Jr. slips, falls in hilarious display of outfield derpness (GIF)

Sometimes, it doesn’t pay to get out of the bed in the morning. But if a major league baseball player chooses to get up on one of those days, he’d be best advised to tell the manager to not put him in the lineup and instead remain in the safe confines of the dugout. Philadelphia Phillies outfielder John Mayberry Jr. probably was feeling that he was better off staying at home...

Amaro Unhappy With Offensive Approach

“I think it’s ridiculous that we’ve had no walks in three days. I cannot believe it. More importantly, it’s about not just walks, but producing, and we haven’t done that. We haven’t gotten hits, period. We haven’t gotten hits with runners in scoring position, we haven’t gotten hits to lead off innings. We need more people on base and more offensive production. You’ve...

Having appeared to lose their hitting stroke on the road, the Philadelphia Phillies are likely eager to return home. They might not be quite as enthusiastic to face Adam Wainwright. Looking to build on a sensational outing, the St. Louis Cardinals staff ace will try to continue his recent success against the Phillies in Thursday night's series opener. Philadelphia (6-9) batted...

Homer Bailey and Kyle Kendrick were nothing short of spectacular tonight. After an hour and twenty minute rain delay in Cincinnati, the two starters squared off, and the duel bagan.
