Utley’s Bad News Makes Now Right Time to Move Brown

The news about Chase Utley was not good. The Philadelphia Phillies originally expected him back in the lineup on June 5th. GM Ruben Amaro said that will not happen. Utley still feels tenderness in his side and will likely miss an additional 15 games. While this is a setback for the Fightin’ Phils, it could also be an opportunity for the team and youngster Domonic Brown. Brown won...

Cliff Lee Could Be Pitching His Way Out of Philadelphia, Which Means Red Sox Should Be Interested (Video)

Cliff Lee is good. The Phillies? Not so much. While it remains to be seen whether Philadelphia will be a buyer or a seller at this year’s trade deadline, Cliff Lee is sure to be a name floating around in rumors until the Phils decide. That means that every outing the left-hander has is more or less an audition for any prospective teams looking for a piece to help their rotation...

Phillies' Ben Revere day-to-day after collision with wall

He remained in the game, but Ben Revere's catch up against the wall in the fourth inning of last night's contest was frightening.  Revere tracked down a blast off the bat of David Ortiz, made the catch, but slammed into the wall.  His elbow caught into the fencing of the Fenway Park wall just right and sent Revere to the ground in a heap.  He was in obvious pain but...

Four blasts lead Phils to second straight win over Sox

The Phillies (26-27) broke out the power bats on Wednesday, slugging four solo homers in their 4-3 victory over Boston (32-22) at Citizen’s Bank Park.

Four runs seems to be the success marker for the Phils this season. When they score four runs...

Papelbon: Shipping back to Boston

The Guru Contributing Writer The last time Jonathan Papelbon walked off the mound for the Red Sox, Boston had just completed the worst collapse in team history. Less than three months later, Papelbon, the Sox all-time saves leader, walked out of Fenway for good, signing a four-year, $50 million contract with the Philadelphia Phillies. Before last night’s game Papelbon was back...

John Lackey Victimized By Homer-Friendly Citizens Bank Park in Loss to Phillies (Video)

Blow up the Core? Signs Point to Yes.

Picture by Richard Wilkins Jr. Ryan Howard's gonna have to play through knee pain this season. Lovely. Since, you know, he's been so good. He doesn't strike out entirely too much, insist on trying to pull everything, and can play great defense. That's just the news the Phillies needed to...

Zagurski a Phucco

Last night Mike Zagurski became the latest Phucco, pitching a scoreless inning for the Pirates. This is a cause for celebration on this blog, because the Phillies sure as hell aren't giving us anything to work with.  For those of you that can't remember, Zig-Zags was a hefty lefty that pitched with the Phils from 2007-2011.  He   became known as "Fat Mike" Zagurski...
