Found February 12, 2012 on We Should Be GM's:
Congratulations to Rheal Cormier for his induction into the Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame. I can still remember him missing time during spring training with the Phillies due to hemorrhoids. What a pain in the ass! Anyway, Frenchy spent 6 of his 16 MLB seasons pitching in Philadelphia where he experienced the most success during his career- 28 W and 3.62 ERA in 363 G. In 2003 he posted an 8-0 record with a 1.70 ERA/0.93 WHIP in 84.2 relief innings. Very impressive. Cormier owns a .650 OPS as a hitter with the Phils too, more than Michael Martinez can claim. The lefty also pitched for Boston, St. Louis, Cincinnati, and Montreal posting a 71-64 record over 683 appearances and 1221.2 IP.

Is The Phillies Offense Good Enough?

For much of the past decade, the Philadelphia Phillies had one of the best offenses in baseball. But that was not the case last season, and the biggest question facing the Phillies this season is whether the offense rebounds, or continues a regression that could threaten to leave them on the outside of the postseason for the first time in six seasons. Philadelphia’s offense began...

Philadelphia Phillies Storyline: Winners Or Losers?

The Philadelphia Phillies have 1 possible path to bring back Roy Oswalt, while Antonio Bastardo leads a slew of young guns into Camp Clearwater. The baseline from Triple-A to the majors is 50%, who will stick with the parent club and who will miss that last jump?

Player Profile #57: Shane Victorino | OF | PHI

What happened to all those steals, Shane Victorino? After averaging 33 steals from 2007-2010, Victorino swiped just 19 bases in 2011, but his power was better than ever. Sure his 17 home runs weren’t a career high, but he played in 15 fewer games and his .212 ISO was 42 points higher than his previous career high. Whether the decrease in steals is a show of his age (31 in 2012...
