Neshek, 36, has been absolutely brilliant thus far this season. The righty has a 1.12 ERA and 0.82 WHIP in 43 appearances.

Wham Bam Thank You Cam: Phillies 9, Astros 0

Those baseball gods are out there, I tell ya. Sometimes, we just have to take a step back and remember we’re all on the same side here, right? After a bit of controversy last night and plenty of, uh, discussion about said controversy throughout the day, the Phillies decided to put all of that aside and win a game in the least controversial of ways Wednesday night.

The Phillies have placed outfielder Daniel Nava on the 10-day DL with a hamstring injury, per a club announcement. His roster spot will go to Aaron Altherr, who was activated from his own time on the disabled list. The move likely eliminates Nava as a possible trade piece. He had seemed to be a possible bench bat target for some organizations, but now teams looking for a left-handed...

Phillies: 29 years ago today, Mike Schmidt sets an MLB record

This day in Phillies history, the greatest third baseman to play the game sets an impressive record. When the name Mike Schmidt comes to conversation, it’s almost always followed by “the greatest third baseman to ever play”. That’s no small compliment. George Brett, Brooks Robinson, and many other third basemen have solidified themselves as greats, but none […] Phillies...

Unpacking the Odubel Herrera conundrum

Odubel Herrera is hitting .375/.437/.672 since July 3. He’s brought his offensive numbers, which were once well below average, very close to league average. Beyond that, he’s shown higher defensive skill this season. For all intents and purposes, Herrera is a valuable player. And then Tuesday happens. On Tuesday, in the sixth inning, Charlie Morton threw a third-strike pitch...

Odubel Herrera Did Dumb Again

It seems like it’s becoming a nearly daily occurrence where you can point out something stupid that Odubel Herrera did. This is nothing new. Even at the beginning of last season, when we all fooled ourselves into thinking the Phillies could be good and Herrera hype was at an all-time high, I remember writing that he was good for one dumb-ass thing per game. On Saturday night, he...

Giancarlo Stanton vents about Marlins dropping series to Phillies

The Philadelphia Phillies, owners of MLB’s worst record, pounded the Miami Marlins 10-3 on Wednesday to secure a series win. After the game, Giancarlo Stanton was not happy. Ordinarily, this wouldn’t be especially noteworthy. The Marlins are in the midst of a bad season and likely saw a home series against the Phillies as a chance to win at least two of three instead of dropping...

It’s time for the Philadelphia Phillies to fire Pete Mackanin

I am not one who likes to see people lose their job.  In fact, I hate when people get fired. Nobody enjoys that aspect when it comes to the sports world.  However in some instances the front office has no choice to fire a coach when the results are lacking and the franchise has no clear cut path to regaining a sense of dominance.  That case is obvious when it comes to Pete Mackanin...
