Why I Love the Phillies – Janet

Phillies Injury News: Roy Halladay Update

The Philadelphia Phillies struggled last season for many reasons, one of which was injuries.  Injuries to pitchers like Roy Halladay devastated the team.  Halladay pitched in only 25 games last season and did not look like the same dominant pitcher he had been since his days with the Toronto Blue Jays.  He came back from shoulder and back problems, but there has been real concern...

MLB Opinion: Utley No Longer a 3 Hole Hitter

Chase Utley is a fan favorite in Philadelphia. What Phillies fan doesn’t love him? He is gritty, plays the game hard, and has come up huge in the clutch throughout his career. At 34 though, he is no longer the middle of the lineup threat that he once was and the Phillies need alter their plans and find a new hitter for the number 3 spot for 2013. Utley’s production has seen a...

Built in with hope projected Phillies lineup still needs help

The Phillies after missing out on some big name free agents are beginning to shape up well, sort of average on paper. The way it looks now the Phillies are pinning their hopes on Howard and Utley to have bounce back years. While this is certainly plausible, “hope” is not very inspiring. It is all in the numbers and if we take a look at the projected lineup for this coming season...
