From the Phillies:All six of the Phillies’ major league coaches have agreed to contracts for the 2012 season, Manager Charlie Manuel announced today.Mick Billmeyer (bullpen), Rich Dubee (pitching), Greg Gross (hitting), Pete Mackanin (bench), Sam Perlozzo (first base) and Juan Samuel (third base), along with bullpen catcher Jesus Tiamo, will resume their respective positions.“I couldn’t be happier to have the whole staff back for another season,” said Manuel. “Their dedication and work ethic speak for themselves and they were a huge part of our 102 wins.”Billmeyer, 47, is the longest-tenured member of the coaching staff after joining it in 2004 as the major league catching instructor. The 2012 season will be his ninth with the Phillies and the eighth for Dubee, fourth for Mackanin and Perlozzo, third for Gross and second for Samuel.The 102-win Phillies will bring the whole crew back. The only question is, what happens with Ryne Sandberg?

“Where are they?” wondered Bobby Cofski, holding a sign that read “UNCEREMONIOUS...
I’ve been harping on how playoff baseball can hinge on luck, happenstance, and fractions of an inch for months now. It’s been roughly utility-neutral to us as Phillies fans in recent years (I hate to go all Jeremy Bentham on you guys, but that was the best way to put it), because while the Phillies, in 2011, lost in the first round of the playoffs despite probably being the best...
Growing up a Philadelphia Phillies fan at Veteran's Stadium, I learned a valuable lesson. The importance of booing. Watching the introductions at Busch Stadium for game one of the World Series, I realized an important fact, the St Louis Cardinals should move their franchise... as should any other franchise where your fans are so passive that you hear clapping when the team&...

The Phillies pulled in the highest percentage local TV audience during the regular season, but the Cardinals have dominated the post-season.
