Getty Image While the Philadelphia Phillies aren’t off to the best start in franchise history with a lousy 6-7 record, it’s certainly not as bad as most people expected for a team that has been perceived as over-the-hill. Perhaps in a move to liven things up and inject the team with a new youthful exuberance, the Phillies allowed some of the kids in the Phillies Phundamentals...

VIDEO: Phillies Jimmy Rollins hits walk-off home run, “dedicates” it to heckler

Rollins hit a solo home run over the left field wall to give the Phillies a 5-4 win over the Miami Marlins at Citizens Bank Park in the top of the 10th inning. Rollins knew it was gone the moment he hit it, and stoical...
