Found May 31, 2013 on Fangraphs:

De Fratus Proclaims Himself Papelbon’s Protege

Justin De Fratus, image- AP On the latest edition of the PhoulBallz Minor League Podcast, Phillies reliever Justin De Fratus joined me and my co-host Tug Haines as our guest.  Among the topics of discussion was the type of impact that veteran teammates have had on him thus far in his big league career. While sharing his thoughts on Phils closer Jonathan Papelbon, the 25-year-old...

Phillies' Chase Utley expected back mid-June

The Philadelphia Phillies placed second baseman Chase Utley on the disabled list a week ago due to a strained right oblique. At the time, the team said Utley would be sidelined for at least two to four weeks as a result of the injury. While they were initially optimistic he could be back on the shorter end of that projection, it now appears that he'll be out until the middle...

Philadelphia Phillies Fan Drinking Beer Through Shirt Like He Was Born To Do It

During Saturday’s Phillies game against the Brewers a fan pulled a Jedi move that created as many questions as it did answers. Shirt over the head. Beer through the shirt. Nipples exposed. Your move, Internet. …and The closeup view: (h/t Big Lead) Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

This Phillies Fan Is A Little Distracting

It doesn’t matter if you’re the home or away team, trying to throw strike when a real life JUGS machine is staring you right in the face has got to be difficult.  John Lackey and Kyle Kendrick did their best and were way more focused than I would’ve been. This Philadelphia Phillies fan was positioned right behind home plate showing off her low-cut tank top that is letting...

Phillies 4, Red Sox 3

Domonic Brown hit a pair of homers, Erik Kratz and Ryan Howard also had solo shots to back Kyle Kendrick and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the Boston Red Sox 4-3 Wednesday night. Kendrick (5-3) allowed two runs and four hits in six innings, helping the Phillies win their second straight against the Red Sox to get within one game of .500. Antonio Bastardo pitched the seventh, Mike...

This day in 1993: Phillies smack five homers in 18-1 rout of Rockies

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the 1993 Philadelphia Phillies going from worst to first and winning the National League pennant. All season long we will take a look back at each game of the 1993 season. The Phillies pounded the expansion Colorado Rockies in the thin mountain air, easily sending Tommy Greene to a 7-0 start with plenty of run support. The Phillies wrapped...

Domonic Brown Hits two Homers in 4-2 Philllies Win

The Phillies hit four solo home runs, including two off the bat of Domonic Brown, in support of Kyle Kendrick Wednesday night as the Phillies defeated the Boston Red Sox 4-2. Kendrick (5-3) came into the game looking to rebound following two poor starts where he allowed nine runs in...

Four Real? Red Sox vs Phillies 5-29-13

Jan-Christian Sorensen Contributing Writer This particular “Four at-bats that changed the game” post is a complete no-brainer. The Philadelphia Phillies ripped four solo homers — three off starter John Lackey in three-and-a-third innings and one more off reliever Koji Uehara — to edge the Red Sox 4-3 at Citizens Bank Park on Wednesday night and draw first blood in a brief...

Papelbon Wins This Sibling Battle, But We'll be Back...

Photo courtesy of NESN. "Sibling Rivalry." I like that term for the little rivalry that Jonathan Papelbon has with the Red Sox. It went to a new level last night when the Red Sox were able to mount a rally against Pap, but Pap was able to finish us. Well, he's one of the best closers in the game. He's like Mariano Rivera, in that if you happen to get a win off...

Brown’s Bombs

Hitting five homers in his last four game, Domonic Brown is on fire…and it is about time. The Phillies have been waiting for Brown to explode and reach his potential for years now. It looks like he may be right on track now. Fresh off his first Player of the Week honors, Brown may now be in the running for Player of the Month. He has been the one bright spot in an otherwise drab...

Brewers-Phillies Preview

Cole Hamels and Yovani Gallardo are front-line starters for their respective teams, but their records are unbecoming of that status as they fight through struggles. Yet both have reason to be optimistic when they square off in the opener of a three-game series between the Philadelphia Phillies and Milwaukee Brewers on Friday night. Hamels (1-8, 4.43 ERA) has exceeded his loss total...
