Roy Halladay: Physically I'm 100%; Phillies' Rebuild Will Be Quick

Roy Halladay was on MLB Network Radio this morning on "Power Alley" with Jody McDonald and Fred McGriff to promote discoverboating.com, but talked plenty of baseball, including how he is feeling after his trip to the disabled list.

Halladay, Lohse Start As Cardinals Return To Philly For First Time Since 2011 NLDS

The Doc Operates on the Red Birds

It seems like a very long time since we have seen a really good Phillies game. But with Roy Halladay on the mound last night looking like the ace that he is, it felt like old times again.

Philadelphia Phillies storyline: Guns, young and unsung

Cardinals-Phillies Preview

(AP) -- The St. Louis Cardinals haven't visited Philadelphia since defeating Roy Halladay and the Phillies in Game 5 of last October's NL division series.

Wholesale changes required of Tribe

CLEVELAND -- Don't be tricked into believing the Indians' 6-2 win over visiting Minnesota on Wednesday was something to smile about, something of relevance. This team stinks. Entering Wednesday, the Indians had lost 11 straight and were laughable every step of the way. So thanks to the Twins for lying down and not caring for a day. And about the only thing worse than the...

The Team That Started It All: Phillies host Cardinals

All Good Things Must End – Phillies Sellout Streak Broken

You could see it coming for months. Even in games that were announced as sellouts, the number of empty blue seats seemed to grow nightly. The tickets may have been paid for, but a number of them sat unsold on the secondary market on sites like Stubhub. After 3 years and 257 straight sellouts, the Phillies streak went the way of their playoff hopes. The Phillies...

WP: Jake Westbrook (12-8, 3.62 ERA) LP: Cliff Lee (2-7, 3.85 ERA) SV: Jason Motte (26) For whatever reason, the Philadelphia Phillies cannot seem to build momentum after a win in 2012.

Another Cleveland Indians top pitching prospect bites the dust

Jason Knapp, a key player in the Cliff Lee trade, was released today. Adam Miller, perhaps the best prospect of them all, was injured then released. Carlos Carrasco  another top prospect has been injured as has Hector Rondon. The luck of the Tribe or the Curse of Flo (Progressive Insurance)?

Fantasy Baseball: Staying Interested Through the Drag of August

I hate deadbeat owners. No, I don’t hate owners who always finish towards the bottom of the standings because they don’t have the time or knowledge to compete. If you give your best efforts, you’re okay with me and should be okay with anyone. No, the kind of owners I hate are the ones who leave injured players in active spots, or often leave starting pitchers...
