The Phillies finalized their 25-man roster over the weekend, opting to use Humberto Quintero as backup backstop over Steven LeRud and going with Phillippe Aumont instead of Michael Stutes to round out the bullpen. The questionable decision was giving the final spot to Rule 5 selection Ender Inciarte, a 22-year-old prospect who hasn’t yet played above High-A. It’s not necessarily...
When Cole Hamels takes the mound for the Philadelphia Phillies' season opener Monday, the world is going to be paying attention to one thing. Is he still rockin' that glorious lip sweater? The lefty, who had been sporting a beard throughout Spring Training showed up to Friday's exhibition game with a little treat for everyone watching. Now, I'm going to go...
Philadelphia Phillies pitcher, Cole Hamels is no stranger to sporting unique appearances. During a recent exhibition game, Cole Hamels was using the team’s hot-dog cannon and launching dogs into the crowd. If that wasn’t cool enough, Hamels was pictured wearing this awesome new mustache!
Cole Hamels Mustache, Phanatic, Hot Dog Gun. Embarrassing Overload! @ogtedberg @avsny...
With Carlos Ruiz started to serve his 25-game suspension to start the 2013 season, it seems as though back-up catcher Erik Kratz is already starting to enjoy the extra face time behind the plate for the Phillies. Kratz will be the Phillies top catcher for the start of the season until Ruiz comes back, and now he is starring in his own advertising campaign for bacon.
Friday, Philadelphia Phillies pitcher charged a nation by showing up for a game with a glorious upper lip companion. Sadly, reports are that it is no more.
Now, I'm no Photoshop wiz, but since no photographic evidence exists (yet), I've decided to put together some sort of rendering of what Hamels might look like without the mustache.
PhilliesTags: Ben RevereJimmy RollinsPhilliesThe Phillies season will be starting in an hour when they play the Atlanta Braves in Georgia. Surprisingly there will be a new name coming to the plate in the first spot in the lineup for the Phils. Charlie Manuel is sending centerfielder Ben Revere up there to start the game and not veteran...
The obituary for the 2013 Philadelphia Phillies has already been written by many baseball experts. Across baseball the prediction is that Charlie Manual’s aging team will win 84 games, land in third place, and miss the playoffs. Many of us who were in Clearwater and watched this team day in and day out believe that this team is better than that, but in order to prove it, they will...
I can hear the reporters already: “Another bad April.” It seems like every year, the Phillies start off slowly and struggle during the first month of the season. Could 2013 be different? The answer could be in the schedule.
The Phillies are not going to immediately start off with an easy team. The Atlanta Braves are predicted by many to be a very good team in 2013. ...
Photo: Philliedelphia/Frank Klose In a move to shore up the Phillies bench, the Phillies sent utility infielder Freddy Galvis to the Miami Marlins for utility infielder Greg Dobbs, according to various media outlets. The move gives the Phillies a veteran left-handed bench presence with some power. Galvis was expendable because...
Ryan Howard's Game 1 homer in 2011's NLDS. The team is set. The season is here. There are no total shockers, but all the battles have been decided. The rotation has no news from it. Cole Hamels, Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee, Kyle Kendrick, and John Lannan were all pretty much...
As I said, I will briefly come out of retirement when I feel the need to write something more than 140 characters (follow on Twitter here). And I’m always a sucker for previews.
A new baseball season will always get my juices flowing, so here is my quick take on the Phillies 25-man roster and my predictions for the season.
Carlos Ruiz – Ruiz is the only reason the Phillies...
