Harang, Phillies can’t compete with Scherzer

For the third consecutive start, Max Scherzer flirted with a no-hitter, but after 16 straight full hitless innings, Scherzer proved to be human on Friday as the Nationals defeated the Phillies, 5-2, at Citizens Bank Park. Aaron Harang allowed all five ...

Sandberg Quits As Nats Arrive

When the Nationals added Max Scherzer to the most feared pitching rotation in baseball, we knew we had something special. When he takes the mound against Aaron Harang on Friday night in Philadelphia, Scherzer has a chance to set personal and team marks. Ryne Sandberg has re-signed as manager of the Phillies. Philadelphia is 26-48 this season and 119-159 since he took over as skipper...

Billingsley hit hard in latest rehab start with Triple-A Lehigh Valley

The Phillies starting rotation has been a merry-go-round this year. Cole Hamels and Aaron Harang have been the constant names all season with Sean O'Sullivan etching himself into that mix.

Harang foiled by one pitch in loss to Cardinals

Aaron Harang still figures to be an intriguing trade chip come the July 31 Trade Deadline. He is 4-9 in 15 starts this season, but he has a solid 3.41 ERA following Saturday's 10-1 loss to the Cardinals at Citizens Bank Park.

Perhaps a Long Lost Answer Has Arrived in Andy MacPhail and a Trade Rumor Roundup

With the Phillies in such a low place in the year, it is only fitting that the fire-sale rumors would continue.  Cole Hamels is sitting his start out for the night, Jonathan Papelbon just added another save to his franchise leading record, and Aaron Harang is…well, Aaron Harang. Jon Heyman of CBSsports.com reports that on top of the trade rumors for household names comes news...

St. Louis Cardinals trade rumors: Starting pitching edition

Just when the St. Louis Cardinals (42-23) seem like they’re getting back on track from an injury, another vital part of the organization gets struck with some type of ailment. Regardless of these injuries, the Redbirds own the best record in the majors, leading cross-state rival Kansas City by three and a half games. However, as the season moves along and players continue to get...

Another Day, Another Game, Another Loss

Another day, another game, another loss is what Phillies baseball has become.  Same ****, different toilet. Thoughts:*This team is so bad, it really doesn't matter if they play worse.  Trading any, or all of, Ben Revere, Jonathan Papelbon, Aaron Harang, Carlos Ruiz, and Ryan Howard makes sense. Papelbon is an elite closer, but rarely gets save opportunities.  Harang is a decent...

Chen, Orioles shut out Phillies as scoreless streak reaches 21 innings

Aaron Harang cruised through four plus innings, but a late fifth inning miscue in left field paired with a sixth inning three-run home run courtesy of Matt Wieters gave the Orioles a 4-0 win. This is the third time in the last four games that the Phillies have been shutout...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Monday, Jun 15

Hello, everyone! It’s been several days since I was able to get a post up, so I apologize for the fear and panic I’ve undoubtedly caused.

Seller’s market at MLB trade deadline could bode well for Phillies

We are about a month and a half away from the trade deadline in Major League Baseball, and it will pretty much be the only thing worth paying close attention to when it comes to the Phillies until that time. Other than the development and rise of Maikel Franco, that is. The Phillies have players that can fill some big roles on playoff contenders, and with the team continuing to sink...

Aaron Harang Struggles In Second Straight Start Against Former Team

It was unlikely that Aaron Harang was going to continue to pitch at the level he had been early on this season. Before his June 4 start against his former team, the Cincinnati Reds, Harang was 4-5 with a 2.02 ERA, 53 strikeouts, 15 walks, and had held opponents to a .215 bating average. In his last two starts, both coming against the Reds, the 37-year-old is 0-2 with a 9.26 ERA in...

Zero Hits and Three Takeaways From Last Night

In case you missed it (you didn’t), The Mets got no-hit last night. So, what to make of it? 1. It was only a matter of time. For all the talk (Until Johan’s Pyrrhic Victory) about how the Mets had never had a no-hitter, I’ve often been shocked that, in nearly 19 years of being alive and 11 years of closely following the Mets, I’ve never seen the team fall on the short side...

Brandon Phillips hopes to continue success against former Red Harang

Aaron Harang put together a string of quality performances few expected from the 14-year veteran, but he finally stumbled his last time out against the Cincinnati Reds. Whether Harang's poor outing was simply a bump in the road or something more alarming for the Philadelphia Phillies should become clear Tuesday night when he rematches with Cincinnati.

After a short Monday, Tuesday is chock-full of intriguing options spanning the elites (Corey Kluber, Max Scherzer) to the ho-hum (Aaron Harang) to the “who the heck is that?” (Taylor Jungmann).
