Found June 11, 2013 on Fox Sports North:
MINNEAPOLIS The list of highlight reel catches that Ben Revere made in 133 games at Target Field is a long one. For most fans, it might be tough to pick a favorite. The former Twin has one in mind, though. He refers to it only as "the one I made in 2011." He made several plays that year, but the one that Revere recalls fondest came back on Aug. 22, 2011 when he robbed Baltimore's Vladimir Guerrero with an over-the-shoulder grab as he scaled the wall in center field. "I made some crazy, crazy catches here," Revere said Tuesday as he visited Target Field for the first time as an opposing player. This past offseason, Revere was traded from Minnesota to the Philadelphia Phillies in exchange for pitcher Vance Worley and prospect Trevor May. Revere was back to his old stomping grounds, the site of many of his most remarkable catches. There were the head-first diving snags of low line drives, the sprints to the gap to take away extra-base hits. And of course, th...

Zambrano Nearing – Is He The Best Option?

The big Phillies news this morning was that Carlos Zambrano will be headed to Triple-A Lehigh Valley to pitch against the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Railriders on Thursday night.

The Phillies have an amusing outfield

On Tuesday, the Phillies played the Twins and fielded the most visually amusing outfield I can remember. In left field, they have slugger Dominic Brown, and in center, they played popular former Twin Ben Revere. In right field, they usually play Delmon Young, but since they were able to play a DH, they had Delmon fill that role and played John Mayberry instead. Brown is 6’5″...

What does Sunday's game say about the character of the Phillies?

Sunday was a tough day for Phillies fans who still want to believe this team has a chance. Even worse than losing three of four to a last place team and dropping to 2 games under .500 was how the Phillies appeared to lay down on Sunday. After allowing four runs in the third inning to fall behind 4-0, Jonathan Pettibone worked a 7 pitch walk. The Phillies would see seven pitches...

Phillies squander late lead en route to fifth straight loss

The Phillies took a 3-2 lead into the eighth inning Wednesday, but were unable to hold on as Minnesota surged back to win the ballgame 4-3. The Phillies have now lost a season-high five straight games as they fall to 31-35 on the season. Wednesday’s game was the same type of nightmare they experienced the day before. Their starting pitching was okay, but labored and could not go...

Phillies' pitcher John Lannan feels ready after rehab start

Philadelphia Phillies' pitcher John Lannan made a rehab appearance at Double-A Reading on Wednesday night. The start came exactly eight weeks after Lannan sustained a quadriceps tendon strain in his left knee against the Cincinnati Reds. As reported by Stephen Pianovich at MLB.com, "Lannan made one rehab start for Class A Clearwater and went four innings, while...

Fail, Cesar! Phillies Doing Disservice To Young Second Baseman Hernandez, Team

Michael Young hit the bereavement list to tend to his son, dealing with an undisclosed ailment and the Phillies turned to the one player generally regarded as most ready at AAA: Cesar Hernandez. After an impressive few days, the Phillies opted to option Michael Martinez to the minor leagues upon...

Offense Fails Phils, Hamels Yet Again in Minnesota

Hamels was solid, but not good enough on Tuesday behind an anemic offensive effort. (Photo: AP) It took the Phillies offense eight innings to get two hits in one frame on Tuesday night.  Ryan Howard’s two-out eighth inning single tied the score at two.  It took their bullpen only five batters to give it right back, as a Justin Morneau single off Antonio Bastardo in the eighth...

Painful Math: Adding Up the 2013 Phillies Season So Far

It is a very good thing that I already have a college degree. Because this Phillies season is giving me many compelling reasons to hate math, which is generally not a good thing where school is concerned. If I had to walk into a calculus class right now, I may run screaming from the room instead. Call it a math hangover. Or just call it the 2013 Phillies season, which has been a...

Rant for Ruben: Thank you for ruining the Phillies

I haven't followed the Phillies closely for every year of my life. But one thing I can tell you is that of all of the teams I have seen since becoming a huge fan of this team, this is the worst. The Phillies had missed the playoffs for years after...
