Maybe the Ryan Howard Contract Wasn’t Such a Mistake

Ryan Howard‘s contract seemed like a mistake from the start. But there are reasons why it was a mistake the Philadelphia Phillies needed to make. When the 2016 season concludes, the Philadelphia Phillies will buy out the final year of Ryan Howard’s contract. With that, Howard’s Phillies career – aside from maybe a one-day “retire as a Phillie” contract – […]...

Stay Young Or Get Weird? That’s The Phillies’ Question

With five games to go in the 2016 Phillies season, the team is nearly unwatchable. At least after the fifth inning. Take it from someone who went to Saturday’s game at Citi Field. The first two innings were cathartic release against a Mets team that had recently been walking on water. The final seven innings felt like being dragged slowly back from the heavens, and once hitting...

Phillies could re-sign Jeremy Hellickson before free agency, report says

The Phillies may be able to keep Jeremy Hellickson from hitting the free agent market.

As Phillies miss playoffs, more Phillies in playoffs than ever

Congratulations to the 2008 Phillies for making the 2016 post season. Who would have thought, as we watched this team fade away in 2012, that four years later, we’d be seeing Chase Utley, Carlos Ruiz, Joe Blanton, Jayson Werth, Cole Hamels, and Jimmy Rollins together again at the playoffs? Only this time, they’re playing for three different teams. And also, one of them isn...

September call-up report card

End of season post-mortem: 2016 Philadelphia Phillies

The Phillies gutted their roster of most veterans over the last year-plus, with Ryan Howard standing as the final member of the 2008 World Champion Philadelphia squad. And while the Phillies will finish under .500 again, they’re not going to lose 100 games, and could end up surpassing their win total of 73 from both the 2013 and 2014 season, meaning this rebuild could be progressing...
