Found September 17, 2012 on Philliedelphia:
So, you've promoted your minor league pitcher to the big club.  Congratulations!  Welcome to the big leagues, Tyler Cloyd. Shoot, we have nothing to use as a picture for the website?  Hmm...we have a picture of him from Reading... But never could they feature him with a minor league cap!  Oh, and it has to be a studio picture... no way could they snap a picture of actual Cloyd anytime between his August 29th and September 18th, right?   Better get out the crayons.   Er, Photoshop.  The end result was this hideous photoshop edit: My best calculation is that that Phillies "P" that goes from the brim to the button (which is the wrong color, by the way - on red Phillies caps it is blue), would have to be about 4 1/2 inches on a hat Cloyd would be wearing.  A standard "P" on a Phillies hat is about two inches. This reminds me of back in the day when TheFightins.com posted this Cliff Lee photoshop into a Mariners uniform where they left the "HK"...

Lee Helped by Rollins, Brown in Phillies Win

Earlier today on our Phillies Nation twitter account (@PhilliesNation), I posted this: Well, it happened.

Jimmy Rollins and Domonic Brown supplied the offense, both going yard to right field; Rollins in the fifth inning, Brown in the seventh, both off starter and Cy Young candidate...

Jimmy Rollins Reaches Another Milestone With Phillies, Shows Hustle in Otherwise Anemic Series

It was one rough weekend for the Phillies Phillies in Houston as they failed to capitalize on what seemed to be a big opportunity to advance in the Wild Card race, but there was one bright spot:  shortstop Jimmy Rollins.   In the fifth inning of the Phillies' 7-6 loss to the Houston Astros Rollins stole his 30th base of the season.  The steal was number 402 of his career...

Phillies IF Chase Utley Continues Work at Third Base; The Move is More About Second Base

Phillies second baseman Chase Utley continues taking ground balls at third base and could soon be known as third baseman Chase Utley.  Sunday's television broadcast showed Utley taking ground balls at third base in Houston, and Monday, the Inquirer's Matt Gelb wrote that Utley took more ground balls.  That the Phillies and Utley are devoting so much time to this is indicative...

Lee’s Effort Returns Phillies To .500

After a disastrous weekend in Houston, the Phillies managed to crawl back to the .500 mark after a 3-1 win over the Mets on Monday night.

For the offense, Jimmy Rollins is on a serious hot streak. It seems lately that...

This day in Phillies history, Phillies accused by Reds of stealing signs

Remember a few years ago when the Philadelphia Phillies were being accused of stealing signs? You remember bullpen coach Mick Billmeyer using binoculars and being accused of using them to steal signs against their opponents.

Howard’s September to Forget

The Big Piece has been a big disappointment (PHOTO: AP) While most had written off the Phillies’ chances at a playoff run, some didn’t. Buster Olney wrote in July of an unnamed scout who believed that if the Phillies entered September six or less out of a playoff spot they would be dangerous. A few other folks at ESPN began to explore the Phillies’ chances before the Astros...

Ugly Seventh Inning and Bullpen Meltdown Lead to 7-6 Loss Against Houston

This was a must-win for the Phillies, no doubt about that. Being three games back in the second wild card spot with 16 left to play, the Phils had to beat the last-place, worst in MLB Astros.  Luckily, the Phils backed up Roy Halladay with some early offense. In the top of the first inning, Jimmy Rollins scored on a sacrifice fly from Chase Utley. In the third, Scott Moore...
