Forget Jonathan Papelbon, Target Jesse Crain

Now that the draft is behind us and we’re only six weeks away from the trade deadline, we’re officially in rumor season. This time of year, we’ll be treated to an almost daily look at which teams might be buying or selling and what players could be changing uniforms before the end of July. The Phillies are probably the most interesting potential seller, because their roster...

Your Morning Dump..Where Buchholz is scratched, again

Every morning, we compile the links of the day and dump them here... highlighting the big storyline. Because there's nothing quite as satisfying as a good morning dump. His progress slowed, Clay Buchholz is still not 100 percent and won't throw a bullpen Sunday, thus taking him out of Tuesday's start. "It's getting better every day," said Buchholz...

Red Sox put RHP Buchholz on disabled list

The Boston Red Sox have put pitcher Clay Buchholz on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained neck. The Red Sox made the move Tuesday after beating Tampa Bay 5-1 in the opener of a day-night doubleheader. Buchholz threw for a brief period in the bullpen following the game. Buchholz is 9-0 and leads the majors with a 1.71 ERA. The right-hander made an early exit from his...

The future for the Philadelphia Phillies begins now

Ruf Watches his Drive During April in Lehigh Valley. The Philadelphia Phillies record going into their game Sunday stands at 33-36 and 7 1/2 games behind the Atlanta Braves who are leading the NL East. With this being said, where do the Phillies go from here? Do they continue to play sub .500 baseball, do they make some big time trades by trading the likes of a Cliff Lee, Chase Utley...

SURE, WHY NOT?

Kid wants a home run, Ryan Howard delivers

Rumors of Philadelphia Phillies 1B Ryan Howard’s power demise may have been greatly exaggerated.  He’s only yanked one home run since May 7.  By all counts his recovery from an Achilles heel injury has sapped some of his power as he struggles in his lower half.  But not on this jack.  Ryan Howard treats both fans in the upper deck and a kid holding up a sign saying “ALL...

Philadelphia Phillies Activate John Lannan, Disable Jeremy Horst

The Philadelphia Phillies have activated left-handed starter John Lannan from the 15-day disabled list after having missed two months due to a strained left quad. The 28-year-old will return to the Philadelphia rotation. To make room on the active roster for Lannan, the Phillies have placed left-handed reliever Jeremy Horst on the 15-day disabled list due to a left elbow strain....

British cricket announcer's hilarious commentary during Yankees-Red Sox game

What do you get when you cross a Monty Python skit with the sport of baseball? A ministry of funny observations about America's great pastime. Anthony Richardson used a British cricket announcer's take on a Yankees-Red Sox "rounders" match to put a new spin on the game. The commentary includes "chaps in pajamas scuttling off for a nap," a fascination...

Aw come on man, focus

Eric D. Schabell Contributing Writer Watching the Red Sox closer, Andrew Bailey, facing the first batter in the 9th inning has been a horrifying experience all season long. I mean it, no nice way to put this. Horrifying. You are not watching him with any sort of confidence are you? Admit it. You are sitting there just like me, fingers crossed, peering between the hands you...

Game 71: Red Sox at Orioles - Lester looks to rebound

Ben Whitehead Contributing Writer A much-needed win Saturday sets up the opportunity for a series split and a chance to leave Baltimore with the largest lead in the AL East for the Red Sox this season. And on the mound is Jon Lester. Tough to beat that, right? The Boston Red Sox (42-28) go into today’s game against the Baltimore Orioles (39-30) looking to leave with a 3.5-game...

Did Amaro Take Shot at Howard?

AP Photo. Prior to Monday’s Phillies/Nationals tilt at Citizens Bank Park, GM Ruben Amaro Jr. spent nearly 20 minutes discussing various topics including the health of Chase Utley and Carlos Ruiz, the return of John Lannan, and the comments made by Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels over the past week or so. It felt as though no stone had been unturned. The most poignant remarks came when...

Nats Can’t Complete Comeback In Phillies Walk-Off Win

A home run in the top of the ninth inning kept the Washington Nationals’ (34-35) hopes of staying above .500 alive, but a walk-off single by the Philadelphia Phillies (34-37) in the bottom half thwarted Washington’s plans for victory in their 5-4 loss. The Nationals were down, 3-4, going into the ninth inning, and their chances of winning looked slim against Philadelphia’s...

Let’s Play Two?

Alfredo Aceves arrived at Fenway a little late today, which meant Franklin Morales (above) was on stand-by. The “Greek God of Walks”–Kevin Youkilis–may have been supplanted by a couple of young guns on the left side of the 2013 Red Sox infield, but this team seems to have no trouble understanding the concept that four balls to one batter means that batter gets his base. They...

18-Year Old Sox Prospect Debuts For Spinners

(Lowell Spinners Photo)Tonight, 18-year old center-field prospect Manuel Margot will start his professional career with the Lowell Spinners. In weekend exhibitions, Margot showed why the Red Sox organization is so high on the 6', 170-pounder from the Dominican Republic. Margot has plus-plus speed and showed it by stretching a gap shot into a triple—and then scoring on an overthrow...

Weekend Recap: Have you seen enough?

Before the Phillies embarked on a 10-game road trip I laid out my expectations if I was to continue to believe this team might be capable of turning things around enough to make a postseason push something worth considering possible. As I reiterated last Monday, that was for the Phillies to pick up no fewer than six wins with stops in Milwaukee, Minnesota and Colorado. Seven wins...
