You know those annoying Facebook macros going around with a picture of the Angry Beavers on it or whatever, with a big caption reading “ONLY 90S KIDS WOULD REMEMBER THIS CLICK LIKE” across the top? The Philadelphia Phillies made an entire night out of that.Wednesday’s 3-2 loss to Brandon Bronson Arroyo was ’90s Retro Night at Citizens Bank Park, and as the mascot-loving guy behind the Sports On TV column I’d be doing you a disservice if I didn’t share the clip of the Phillie Phanatic dancing with the Spice (Ball) Girls or the hilariously thrown-together photoshops depicting Charlie Manuel as Wilson from ‘Home Improvement’, or whatever. It’s the kind of night that makes being at the ballpark fun, except for all the losing.Most of the pictures come with a hat-tip to my good friend Mr. Joey Odorisio, and the ones that don’t are credited where applicable. What are you waiting for? Check them out. There’s a really creepy shot of Chase Utley as Dylan from ‘Beverly Hills 90210′ waitin

Phillies Beat Nats in Opener; Schwimer in Trouble Again

The Phillies beat the 1st place Nationals Friday night by a score of 4-2. It was a very satisfying win considering that these teams have essentially switched places this year, with the Phillies going from 1st to worst for most of the season. It was probably also very satisfying for Kyle Kendrick who pitched very well for his 3rd start in a row. Kendrick has received a lot of well...

Brian Schneider Heads to DL, But No One to Replace Him

Today the Phillies placed backup catcher Brian Schneider on the 15-day disabled list. What do you do when your backup goes down and the guy he is backing up is also down? Good thing the Phillies are out of it. Steven Lerud was the best they could do. Lerud was the best they could do given the circumstances. You may remember Lerud from a few Spring Training games. The Phillies...

Phillies claim sole possession of third place in NL East

And so, the Nationals roll into Philly for a three game series this weekend. Hopefully Gio Gonzalez found some decent food options last night upon arrival. Oh, and congratulations to the Philadelphia Phillies, who nabbed sole possession of third place in the NL East for the first time since April with a hard fought 4-3 victory over the Reds in 11 innings last night. via Philadelphia...

Asche Shines as Reading’s Other Star

In the midst of a playoff race, talented first-year pro Cody Asche is shining in the shadow of a dominating figure. If not for the scorching hot bat of first baseman/outfielder Darin Ruf, the focus of fans and media members might be fully centered on the Phillies’ 4th round draft selection from last summer. Asche, who typically bats second in the Double-A Reading Phillies’...

Phillies - Reds: When You Can't Say Yes And You Can't Say No

The Five Tool Ninja (yes, he exists, from the ancient days of the blog, back when others would write) and I went to the Phillies-Reds game tonight in Philly. He's home for the week sans kids, and I'm at that magical place of the summer where you look at your kids and fantasize about breaking into the school and locking them there for six hours, just to get them out of...

Pregame: Cy Young Match Up between Hamels and Cueto

I think there is a Cy Young winner in the house tonight. Is it the home team's staff ace, Cole Hamels (14-6/IP-171.1 /ERA-2.94/K-168/BB-42/WHIP-1.11)? Is it his opponent Cincinnati's Johnny Cueto (16-6/IP-169.2/ERA-2.44/K-135/BB-37/WHIP-1.13)? Personally if I had a vote, it would have to go to Reds closer Aroldis Chapman. How does anyone get a hit off this guy? Without a...

Bronson Arroyo Pitches Gem Against Phillies, Phils Drop Another, 3-2

In Vance's previous four starts, he had gone less than six innings and had allowed four or more earned runs. Vance would go six again, but it was a much better start than his last. While Bronson Arroyo was tossing a no-hitter through five innings, the Reds were backing him up with some offense. In the fifth, Drew Stubbs singled to right to score Ryan Hanigan. Stubbs later...

Reds hold on for win over Philly, 3-2

A sure way to tell this is a special season – not even the Philadelphia curse can keep the Reds at bay. The Redlegs found a way to win in the City of Brotherly Love once again Wednesday night, holding on for a 3-2 victory. Bronson Arroyo (10-7) was awesome on the hill, the Reds had just enough timely hitting and Aroldis Chapman held on in the ninth ...

Phils Walk Off for Series Split With Reds

PHOTO: AP After four hours and 24 minutes of baseball, the Phils came back from a 3-0 deficit to win the game 4-3 in 11 innings. Despite missing opportunity after opportunity to score the winning run, they finally got it home in the 11th on a walk off by John Mayberry Jr.   Cole Hamels and Johnny Cueto both pitched ‘OK’; Hamels gave up three runs, while Cueto only gave...

Phils lose close one as Reds pull out 3-2 win

A total of 41,794 fans, the moving ice cream containers, the Phantic, and oh, yeah, losing Phillies baseball. My live trek with the Phillies started in Pittsburgh on April 5 , a 1-0 win on opening day.
