We Should Be GM's:
*Appears that the Phillies starting rotation is already numerically slotted into place- 1. Hamels, 2. Halladay, 3. Lee, 4. Kendrick, 5. Lannan.*Yuniesky Betancout and Ryan Howard, each batting .500, are swinging the hot sticks early on in camp.*Rule 5'er, Ender Inciarte, is carrying a 1.000 OBP, with 3 walks and 1 hit in 1 at bat.*The Phillies are 0-2-1 through the first few Grapefruit League games. Oh, no!!!*Darin Ruf is 0-8 with 2 K. This will not earn him a job.*When Jonathan Papelbon isn't busy complaining about the lack of leadership in the clubhouse, he can be found serving up a ****-storm on the mound. Through 2/3 of an inning he has a 81.00 ERA and 10.50 WHIP. Best check yoself, before you rickety wreck yoself.*Michael Stutes recorded 3 outs yesterday, all on deep fly balls to the warning track. Also gave up 2 runs. *Delmon Young will likely begin the season on the DL, and there is where I hope he remains.*Chase Utley has played in 2 games already. That is 2 m...
BEST OF MAXIM
Jonathan Papelbon gave up six earned in 2/3 of an inning as the Phillies lost to the Tigers 10-1.
For a 10-1 loss, this could have been a lot worse. Cliff Lee pitched a hitless two innings with two Ks and Tyler Cloyd followed with two hitless innings of his own. Phillippe Aumont was sharp in his hitless inning, registering a strikeout.
Ryan Howard continued his solid play...
Philadelphia Phillies outfielder is (inexplicably) fighting for a job this winter after the team signed veteran Delmon Young (who hasn't played in a spring game yet after offseason ankle surgery). Brown is having himself a solid spring so far, and on Tuesday, he hit his second homer of the preseason. This shot, a solo blast off of Zach Nuding of the Yankees, actually cleared...
In game three of Grapefruit action, Cliff Lee will take the mound for the Phillies back home in Clearwater. The Tigers followed them from Lakeland and will play the Phillies for the second day in a row. A few interesting notes in today's lineup. First, Michael Young is batting third...
It’s up to you to tell us who should be part of the Phillies All-Time team. During the winter, we’ll unveil one position at a time for you to vote on. After all the votes are tallied, and all the position filled, we’ll release the results. Make your vote count!
Granny Hamner (16 seasons, 3x All-Star): .263 avg, .689 OPS, 103 HR, 705 RBI, 16.3 WAR
If John Mayberry was an animal he would be a cat, because he is already working on his fifth baseball life. It’s amazing to think just how fortunate Mayberry has been in his career. Here's a look at the many opportunities Mayberry has been given and why he used up his last.
Miguel Cabrera’s home-run swing already appears to be in Triple Crown form. Two days after launching his first long ball of the spring, Cabrera took Phillies reliever Jonathan Papelbon way downtown, clearing a line of concession stands out behind deep left-center field at Philadelphia’s park.
“That is one of the longest home runs you’re going to see here at Bright House Field...
Cliff Lee looked excellent this afternoon against the Tigers in Clearwater. In two innings, Lee walked one and struck out two. He did not give up a hit. Tyler Cloyd followed with two shutout innings of his own, walking one and striking out one. In the bottom of the fourth...
Note: Today's game may be subject to suspension due to inclimate weather. The Phillies have lost two and tied in one of the Grapefruit League games they have played in so far. Despite their 10-1 loss yesterday, Cliff Lee was strong as he threw 2 innings of ball while yielding...
The Phillies organization has a pair of impressive left-handed arms at the top of the list, followed by some interesting, but largely inexperienced, prospects.
#1 Jesse Biddle (P)
The Phillies organization has developed some interesting arms in recent years with the likes of Jarred Cosart (traded...
They say that, when it comes to understanding anything about the subsequent regular season, you should never pay attention to numbers in March. That’s good advice, and it doesn’t even bother to mention numbers in February. Today is February 25, spring-training competition has only just begun, and nothing matters. To whatever extent any baseball matters, February baseball matters...
In a way, Matt Tolbert feels like he’s starting all over. In a way, he is.
