Your browser does not support iframes.Drew Stubbs probably thought he had a home run Wednesday before Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Laynce Nix changed all that.With one out and no runners on in the bottom of the fourth, the Cleveland Indians hitter skied a ball high and deep toward the right field wall at Progressive Field off southpaw Cliff Lee. This is when Nix's Spiderman instincts apparently kick in as he eventually makes one heck of a catch to snag a potential home run ball from Stubbs.As you can see, the MLB veteran times his leap perfectly while making the grab. Needless to say, Lee was really appreciative of Nix's effort on that one.

CSN Report: Phillies Continue to Puruse Stanton

According to Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com, the Phillies are still at it. They’ve made a few calls to Miami in an attempt to nab Giancarlo Stanton and will continue to pursue the 23-year-old rightfielder. Now, this should come as no surprise. Twenty-nine other teams should be doing the same thing, as he’s clearly the best young power hitter in baseball, when healthy. Ruben Amaro...

Around The Farm: April 30, 2013

Chris Wallace (Columbus, C) - 5-7, 2 2B, 1 RBI, 1 K, 1 PB - Okay, he may not be a prospect, and it was a 15-inning game.  But anytime a guy gets five hits in a game, it is worthy of feature status. When it's in his Triple-A debut for the organization, even more so.  Wallace seems to be making a name for himself as a possible depth option at catcher (which may be needed the...

McClure continues the process of molding his potential

The Cleveland Indians have placed a stronger focus in recent years to draft more athletes that can play in the middle of the diamond. One such example of this is the selection of outfielder D’Vone McClure in the 4th round of last year’s draft. At 19-years of age and 6-foot-3 and 190 pounds, he has the body, size, and athleticism that make scouts drool over his potential. Oh yeah...

Its time for the Phillies to move Howard out of the cleanup spot

What we learned from the two game series with the Cleveland Indians, the Phillies are far from a contender. In game one the Phillies lost by the long ball and if you were a believer that Roy Halladay was back in from you learned after a mere inning he is not. Giving up two home runs in the first, the Indian’s made Halladay’s night a quick one in a rout. The second game the opposite...
