After hearing Ruben Amaro Jr. a few weeks ago on 97.5 the Fanatic, all signs pointed to the Phillies not entertaining the idea of bringing back former player, manager, and coach Larry Bowa back to the club for one last go-round as a coach. But then again, we know that...

Bowa returns to Phillies as coach

Former Phillies manager and shortstop Larry Bowa has returned to the team to serve as bench coach under manager Ryne Sandberg. Besides Bowa, Pete Mackanin also is coming back to the Phillies to be the third-base coach. Mackanin was the bench coach for Charlie Manuel from 2009-12. Steve Henderson is staying as hitting coach while Wally Joyner declined to return as assistant hitting...

Bowa Returning Smart Move for Phillies

The Philadelphia Phillies took a big step today to return to winning when they rehired former manager Larry Bowa to be the bench coach for Ryne Sandberg’s 2014 squad. Bowa managed the Phillies from 2001 until the final series of the 2004 season and is one of only two people to wear the team’s uniform at Connie Mack Stadium, Veteran’s Stadium, and Citizens Bank Park along with...

Phillies close to adding Larry Bowa to coaching staff

Larry Bowa appears headed back to Philadelphia for a fourth stint of service with the Phillies. CSN Philly is reporting that Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg wants Bowa to be on his coaching staff for the 2014 season. The Phillies have three openings on their coaching staff: Bench coach, pitching coach and third base coach. Mick Billmeyer, who served as the bench coach at the end of...

Phillies Nation Player Review: Joe Savery

Joe Savery‘s improbable 2011 promotion to the big leagues was one that brought Savery to tears. Drafted in the first round of the 2007 draft as a hard-throwing lefty out of Rice, Savery had a very unlikely route to the Majors: Savery went 1-12 with the IronPigs in 2010 and was converted to a first baseman for High-A Clearwater for 2011. Savery was quickly promoted to Reading and...

Report: Larry Bowa Close to Returning to Phillies as Bench Coach

Honestly, Ruben Amaro is just trolling all of us. The imbecilic Phillies general manager, who saddled departed manager Charlie Manuel with a roster incapable of winning at the major league level and stocked the farm system with players incapable of winning at the minor league level, either, is ready to make his most inexplicable move yet. Larry Bowa is going back to Philadelphia...

Phillies offer Charlie Manuel position

Phillies General Manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said it, fighting back tears on the day of the press conference announcing Charlie Manuel's dismissal as manager of the Phillies after nine seasons at the help. Amaro hoped that Manuel would stay in the organization. It appears that Amaro has continued to speak...

He's Back...

Say hello to the Philadelphia Phillies new bench coach, who will serve under manager Ryne Sandberg.  He might seem a bit fimiliar.That's right ladies and gentlemen, that red-assed little prick Larry Bowa is back! Can't wait to see him rip into Rollins for 4 infield pop-up outs in one game. Sandberg and Bowa are reunited for the first time since they were both traded to the...

Black Friday 1977: How Fate Reminded Philadelphia Of Its Heritage

Johnny Goodtimes and Fastball Pitcher Bob Gutierrez lampoon the drama of 1977 in this edition of “Sports Purgatory”. On a more serious note, this article was originally posted on Black Friday 2010 by R.C. Cowie. Black Friday is a term that was coined here in Philadelphia during the winter of 1966. It described the congestion of vehicle and foot traffic caused by Christmas shoppers...

The Phillies Two & Three Years Ago

Can you believe it was three years ago yesterday? October 6, 2010, Roy Halladay tossed just the second no-hitter in postseason history, stifling the Cincinnati Reds in the NLDS. Luckily, I was there and it was certainly a moment I’ll never forget. I was able to capture the video below from my seat in the press box. Hell, I was nervous for Doc. Yet he was the coolest customer in...

Report: Larry Bowa Close to Rejoining Phillies

Larry Bowa was the kind of gritty player Philadelphia fans fell in love with. Brought up through the organization and establishing himself as an All-Star shortstop, Bowa was an integral part of the late 1970′s Phillies that later turned into the very first championship team the city ever had. Bowa was brought back to manage the Phillies in 2001, earning Manager of the Year honors...

Phillies Nation Player Review: Tyler Cloyd

He’s gone now, but looking back at Tyler Cloyd’s tenure with the Phillies, I’m sure he’d be upset with how his time in Phiadelphia ended. It began with a bit of promise; a kid who tore up minor league hitting in 2012 would be summoned to the majors late last year. No one thought of Cloyd as a heralded prospect, more of a stopgap for a team hoping to get a few innings from...

Phillies Officially Bring Back Larry Bowa And Pete Mackanin; Wally Joyner Declines A Job

Recycling is good, right? Today the Phillies formally announced that Larry Bowa would be returning to the Phillies coaching staff. Also - SURPRISE! - Pete Mackanin makes a return, according to many reports including this tweet from the Philadelphia Daily News' Ryan Lawrence. Mackanin was not retained on the Phillies...

Phillies Nation Player Review: Raul Valdes

Lefty Raul Valdes was a pleasant surprise in 2012 for the Phillies. Whether it was the 2.90 ERA or the 0.742 WHIP in 31.0 IP in 2012, Valdes could be counted on to compete against Major League hitters. In 2013, the bottom fell out. The most noticeable difference in Valdes’ 2012 and 2013 was his splits: with K/9 IP above his career average and his BB/9 IP below his career average...

Take Your Old Legends Away, Please

Larry Bowa. Craig Berube. Please.Stop.Now. I'm naturally a sentimental person. It's taken me 30 years to believe sports teams should not be sentimental. I should like these guys, really. Bowa was on the 1980 and 1983 teams, he was a base coach in 1993, I get it. Berube was on...
