Three Phillies Make the List of Highest Paid Athletes

The Philadelphia Phillies have a pretty big payroll; this much we know. Their $180,052,723 payroll is good for the third highest in baseball.

ESPN.com recently posted a list of the top 25 highest paid athletes in the world and three Phillies...

Brewers Look to Keep Good Times Rolling Against Cliff Lee ☆

Milwaukee Brewers starter Matt Garza had a bizarre outing on Wednesday night in Philadelphia, giving up eight hits, four runs and walking two, but he hung in there after some miscues on his part (a poor throw to second base and a balk among them) and some at-times shoddy defense behind him to pitch six complete innings.  That’s what the Brewers need their starters to do, even...

Philadelphia Phillies: Opening day observations

The Philadelphia Phillies started off the season on the right foot in a crazy 14-10 victory over the Texas Rangers.  It looked as though the game would be decided early, when the Phillies jumped out to a six run lead at the top of the second inning.  However, Cliff Lee struggled, giving the lead back before the offense fired back.  Here are some observations about the Phillies...

Often overlooked, Cliff Lee deserves Opening Day start

Cliff Lee will make his second career Opening Day start today in Texas. If that doesn’t open your eyes wide or least cause an extra blink, it should. To put that in perspective, Brett Myers has three Opening Day starts, and Lee's second Opening Day start ties Jon Lieber, yes, John Lieber. And his former teammate Roy Halladay started three Opening Days for the Phillies and ten in his career.

A rift in the Philadelphia Phillies’ front office?

Despite trade rumors, Rollins is his regular upbeat self. On Wednesday morning after batting practice Jimmy Rollins was his typical self, relaxed and not irritated.  An ESPN.com report that officials in the Philadelphia Phillies want him to step-up or be traded did not phase Rollins for one reason.  “They can’t trade me, it doesn’t matter”, said the shortstop on before...

Report: A fan mailed Cliff Lee fingernail clippings

An odd report is coming from MLB.com’s Anthony Castrovince: Cliff Lee recently received fan mail that contained fingernail clippings. Now, I’m not entirely sure why someone would mail Cliff Lee his or her fingernail clippings. Does that person want autographed fingernails? It’s anyone’s guess. But it is a distinct possibility that Lee will be the Phillies’ Opening Day starter...
