Pete Orr’s eighth inning homer off of former Phil Mike Zagurski was the difference in a 2-1 win over the Pirates.
Three players’ performances stood out for me today: Orr, Ender Inciarte, and Aaron Cook. A day after playing center field for the first time in Major League or Major League exhibition game, Orr hit the deciding homer in the eighth. Cook allowed two base runners...
Roy Halladay used two meaningful words to alleviate concern over a terrible outing.
''Nothing hurts,'' Halladay said.
Considering he's coming off an injury-plagued year, that's important news for the Philadelphia Phillies.
Ramon Santiago hit a grand slam and Don Kelly also homered off Halladay, leading the Detroit Tigers to a 10-6 win over the Phillies...
Philadelphia Phillies ace Roy Halladay was optimistic that he came into Spring Training in 2013 ready to put 2012 behind him. The right handed former Cy Young Award winner came into camp healthy and got batters out in his first few starts of the Spring. Today was different.
Despite getting hitters out in his first three starts of the Spring and posting an impressive 2-0 record with...

Doc takes the hill in what might be a messy, rainy game against the Tigers.
A couple of emerging trends to keep an eye on: Ben Revere has been the lead-off hitter with J-Rol...
Last year at this time, the Phillies were hurting. Chase Utley was nowhere to be found, and Ryan Howard was taking ground balls on a stool. Second and third base were huge question marks, not to mention the power outage at first base with Howard’s absence. The pitching staff, anchored by the trio
On Sunday, Murray Chass published his thoughts on minorities in baseball with a splash of recent statistics, claiming the numbers would “disappoint, if not disgust” the late Jackie Robinson. The baseball columnist pointed out:
Since the Philadelphia Phillies named Ruben Amaro Jr. general manager Nov. 3, 2008, teams have hired 14 general managers. All have been white.
Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, and Andy Pettitte all played together for the first time this 2013 Grapefruit League tonight in Tampa against the Philadelphia Phillies. Collectively, they are 3 of the “Core 4″ New York Yankees heavily responsible for five World Series title since they came onto the scene in the mid-1990′s. All are 38 years old or older, all are coming off...
Yesterday, crowds cheered when smoke appeared over the Seattle Space Needle - (it's legal there) - signaling that free-swinging Tigers outfielder Brennan Boesch had entered the MLB free agent market. Immediately, the Yankiverse began rubbing its hands together with anticipation, and - yes - in case you are wondering, I am attempting to speak bitter, unvarnished mega-truth through...
AL BEast Notebook – March 13
Derek Jeter made his Spring debut in the field Wednesday, leading off and playing his usual shortstop position after DHing a couple games.
He had just one fielding opportunity, picking up a ground ball and tossing to second for the out in the fourth inning. He went 0-2 with a walk. Jeter is 1-6 batting in his three preseason starts.
Jeter broke his...
This year, I plan on witnessing my own little slice of history during the season. I don’t know exactly when it will occur and to be honest, I can’t guarantee it will occur, but I’m going to try my hardest to see it. This season, I plan on going to Yankee Stadium and watching Mariano Rivera nail down a save for the New York Yankees.
Sure, I’ve seen it before. Most of us probably...
