Yeah, the headline was lame. At least I didn't go the "Miner? I hardly know her" route. But the Phillies are going to take on the Miami Marlins once again, with a taxed bullpen and a non-starter on the mound. Having lost the series opener to the Marlins, the Phillies...

Phillies Squeak By Marlins on Two First Inning Runs

It wasn’t pretty, but it was a win. The Phillies beat the Marlins, 2-1, with both runs coming in the top of the first inning. Of their five hits on the night, just one came in that first inning. But three consecutive walks, including one to Darin Ruf with the bases loaded, and a Kevin Frandsen ground out, plated the only runs of the evening. It was just enough. Zach Miner led the...

Phillies top Marlins, 2-1, to snap five-game losing streak

The final weekend of the 2013 season will see the Phillies a team that left spring training six months ago with the hopes of being a contender built around starting pitching sending journeyman Zach Miner and an unnamed member of their bullpen to the mound at Turner Field. From Roy Halladay and John Lannan’s respective surgically repaired body parts to the inconsistency of Kyle...

Halladay Injured as Phillies Blanked by Marlins

In what could be the final start by Roy Halladay in Phillies pinstripes, the Phillies were shutout by the Miami Marlins, 4-0. The injury was the biggest news of the evening. Halladay left the game after just 16 pitches – registering one out and walking two batters – with what the team called “arm fatigue.” His velocity peaked at just 83 mph and Doc worked up a healthy lather...

Phillies RHP Halladay leaves game early

Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Roy Halladay left Monday night's game against the Miami Marlins in the first inning with an undisclosed injury. Halladay walked two of the first three batters he faced before leaving after a long discussion with manager Ryne Sandberg. He was replaced by Luis Garcia. The 36-year-old two-time Cy Young Award winner had surgery on his right shoulder...

Phillies starter Roy Halladay leaves in first inning

MIAMI -- Philadelphia Phillies right-hander Roy Halladay left Monday night's game against the Miami Marlins in the first inning with what the team described as right-arm fatigue. Halladay exited with two Marlins on -- both courtesy of walks -- and one out after throwing 16 pitches. He was credited with allowing one earned run in his 13 of an inning and his fastest pitch was...

Phillies' Roy Halladay leaves in first inning with right arm fatigue

Philadelphia Phillies' pitcher Roy Halladay, who has struggled all season with shoulder problems, had to leave the first inning of Monday night's game against the Florida Marlins with what the team called "right shoulder fatigue". As reported by Todd Zolecki of MLB.com,  Halladay walked Donovan Solano on four pitches, got a pop out from Ed Lucas and walked...

Ruf Lost Among Historic Rookie Class?

Headed into last night’s game against the Marlins, Phillies outfielder/first baseman Darin Ruf was ranked sixth among all rookies in on-base percentage, sixth in slugging, was third in drawing walks, fifth in home runs, third in OPS, or on-base percentage plus slugging, third in wOBA, fourth in wRC+, and second in ISO, or isolated power. In a normal year, Ruf would receive consideration...

Why is Delmon Young Still Playing?

Delmon Young was signed to a 1-year deal by the Philadelphia Phillies last offseason. Analytic types had a field day with Ruben Amaro‘s decision to give regular playing time to the right fielder who was coming off a season with the Detroit Tigers where he had grounded into as many double plays (20) as he had drawn walks. Young produced a .261/.302/.397 BA/OBP/SLG line and ...

Sandberg Signed; Phils Swept by Mets

It’s official – The Phillies announced today that Ryne Sandberg is no longer the “interim” manager.  He has been signed to a 3-year deal, with a club option for a 4th year.  With a new manager in place, everyone was smiling and laughing before the game. But the smiles faded as the day wore on.  It is a shame the Phillies could not scrape out a win for Sandberg today;...

Gameday: Phillies (71-83) vs. Marlins (57-99)

Philadelphia Phillies (71-84) vs. Miami Marlins (57-99) Roy Halladay (4-4, 6.71) vs. Nate Eovaldi (3-6, 3.79) Time: 7:10, Marlins Park TV: CSN Weather: Overcast, 84 Media: Twitter and Facebook Either tonight or Saturday could be Roy Halladay’s last start as a Philadelphia Phillie.  Perhaps a strong performance might tilt the scales towards the Phillies resigning him....

Phillies And Marlins Meet In Miami For Final Matchup

The Phillies begin play of their last week of the season tonight as they head down to Miami to face the Marlins. Both teams are already guaranteed losing seasons, but now they fight for pride alone. As our pal John Stolnis of That Ball's Outta Here pointed out early, the...

Halladay's Finish Makes Need for Pitching Clear

The good ole' days. Photo by Richard Wilkins Jr. Ruben Amaro can say whatever he wants, if he's not worried, he's lost his mind. There is no way you can re-sign Roy Halladay thinking he can be a number three starter. It's much easier to think that this is the...

Eovaldi dominates Phillies after Halladay's early exit

In a final-week series at Marlins Park between teams going nowhere but home the objective for the Marlins and Phillies is to go out with heads held high. Marlins right-hander Nathan Eovaldi certainly could Monday after holding the Phillies to no runs and three hits for 7 2/3 innings in a 4-0 victory. Not so Phillies’ two-time Cy Young Award winner Roy Halladay who walked off...
