From a post I did on More Hardball back in 2008...Being a former college athlete I'm sorta okay with that whole butt slap thing, but grabbing another dude's junk is out of line and borderline (ahem...over-the-top) gay.Yep, that's Jonathan Papelbon in the picture grabbing the crotch of Manny Ramirez. Does this make Papelbon (aka- Cinco Ocho) a "junk baller"?
Seriously, if Jim Thome was even considering playing first base for the Philadelphia Phillies until Ryan Howard got better, he had another thing coming. Like hip surgery.
The Colorado Rockies have no use for Ty Wigginton anymore, so they traded him away to the Phillies for some cash or a player to be named later. Not a bad deal for Philly though either, considering all they...
The Philadelphia Phillies have offered arbitration to free agents Jimmy Rollins, Ryan Madson and Raul Ibanez.
The players have until Nov. 30 to accept. If they sign elsewhere, the Phillies would be entitled to compensatory picks in next June's draft.
The Phillies are hoping to retain Rollins, the shortstop who won the 2007 NL MVP. The team signed Jonathan Papelbon to replace...
(Photo: AP)Stores like Marshall’s and TJ Maxx do great business by selling surplus designer merchandise at prices significantly lower than retail department stores. Often times, you can find merchandise that is literally identical to products found in Bloomingdales and Macy’s. I’m not sure if Ruben Amaro Jr. shops at Marshall’s or TJ Maxx, but the acquisition of Ty Wigginton...

Shane Victorino has always had the nickname, and now he has a holiday to go with it. Victorino, the aptly-named "Flyin' Hawaiian" on Philadelphia's roster, learned Monday that Hawaii governor Neil Abercrombie has recognized his achievements by enacting Shane Victorino Day.
Brendan's take: In a move sure to go under the radar to most fantasy players, the Phillies acquired Ty Wigginton from the Rockies. He'll prove valuable in not only NL leagues but also in deeper mixed daily ones. His multi-position eligibility is a perfect fit for the Phillies, who have an aging Utley and Polanco at second and third respectively, an injured Ryan Howard, and...
The latest from Jon Heyman of SI.com (all links go to Twitter):
Other than the Indians, the Rangers were the only team that told Grady Sizemore he’d play center field, according to Heyman. The outfielder re-signed in Cleveland today for a base salary of $5MM with up to $4MM in incentives.
The Phillies were a “strong option” for Sizemore, but they wanted him in left...
The Philadelphia Phillies have offered arbitration to free agents Jimmy Rollins, Ryan Madson and Raul Ibanez. The players have until Nov. 30 to accept. If they sign elsewhere, the Phillies would be entitled to compensatory picks in next June's draft. The Phillies are hoping to retain Rollins, the shortstop who won the 2007 NL MVP.

Jim Salisbury of Comcast Philly says that, while the Phillies are interested...
