Found April 29, 2013 on Philly Sports Live:
After an encouraging end to last week, one in which the team took two out of three games against the St. Louis Cardinals, the Phillies fell flat on their faces against the Pittsburgh Pirates. They would lose three out of four and in ugly fashion. Jonathan Pettibone made his major league debut on Monday night [...]

Adding Ruiz without Aderall: what will Phillies get?

Carlos Ruiz returns to the Phillies today and he will do so without his long lost friend Aderall. Although it might be a fun drug at parties or to cram for a big exam for college students, Aderall doesn't exactly scream baseball. Aderall doesn't improve bat speed, it doesn't add distance on home runs, and it doesn't help players rebound quicker from injuries. But...

Delmon Young activated, Carrera DFA’d

Expect to see Delmon Young in the lineup tonight in Cleveland. As was reported first by CSN Philly’s Jim Salisbury on Twitter, Delmon Young has been activated by the Phillies and will join them for their series opener tonight in Cleveland.  With the Phillies able to utilize the designated hitter in the American League ballpark, expect Young to be in the lineup tonight.  In a...

PN Interview: Reading Manager Dusty Wathan Talks 2013 Fightins

Galvis, Howard Power Hamels to First Win, Sweep of Mets

Howard came up big in the clutch in a 5-1 Phils win to cap the sweep. Photo: Seth Wenig, AP On a day where Cole Hamels struggled with control, issuing six free passes, Hamels kept his composure to pick up his first win of 2013 in a 5-1 Phillies win. Hamels allowed only two hits to limit the damage of his free passes on a day where the Mets struck early on a David Wright RBI single...

Hamels Gets 1st Win as Chooch Returns for Sweep of Mets

Perhaps it is fitting that Cole Hamels did not get his first win of the season until the day Carlos Ruiz returned from a 25-game suspension.  Throughout the weekend, the Phillies suddenly began to show signs of life.  Maybe a lot of that had to do with the anticipation of Chooch’s return. After losing 3 of 4 to the Pirates, the Phils proceeded to storm New York and sweep the...

How many wins for the 2013 Phillies?

Former Phils give us something to laugh about

Feeling down about the Phillies on a miserable Monday? If you are a glass half-empty kind of guy, you might take pleasure in knowing that some former Phils are having really bad seasons. Just to give you a basis for the truly alarming numbers you are about to see, keep in mind that the league average for WHIP is 1.31 and Chad Qualls had a 1.53 WHIP last season for the Phils.

Delmon Young Appears To Be Joining The Phillies Today

According to CSN Philly's Jim Salisbury, outfielder Delmon Young is headed to Cleveland, where the Phillies are about to begin a two-game series. Presumably Young could serve as the team's designated hitter and ease his way back into play. Young's rehab stint clock is far from forcing him to the...

Doc Looks To End April On High Note; Delmon Young Makes Phillies Debut Against Indians

The Phillies are coming off of a three-game sweep over the New York Mets this weekend, their first sweep of the year. With the offense surging, a day off yesterday certainely doesn't prove good timing, but as the Phillies enter tonight's ballgame at 12-14 they are looking to end the...

3 Up & 3 Down: Frustrated By The Phillies Edition

In last weekend’s edition of 3&3, I cautioned to watch out for a Dodger’s team that was struggling. That warning should have been extended to this weekend’s series with the Phillies as well. Against two teams that have been struggling, our Mets finished 1-5. Looks like our team is fast becoming a cure to another team’s slump. 3 UP Kyle’s Complete Game: We don’t like...

(PHOTO: AP) Behind the power of 12 hits, including back-to-back home runs, and stellar pitching from the bullpen, the Phillies slugged their way to an easy 9-4 victory over the Mets today. The win was their fifth straight at Citifield, and the first of rookie Jonathan Pettibone’s career. PASSABLE PETTIBONE...
