Phils drop fourth straight spring contest

The Phillies dropped their fourth straight game on Saturday when they were downed by the Twins in Fort Myers by a score of 7-1. Righty hurler Jerome Williams took the loss, allowing six runs (four earned) while allowing nine hits and two walks, striking out four in four innings of work.  The outing left Williams, who will likely open the 2015 season as the Phils’ number three...

2015 Non-Roster Invitee Preview: Sean O’Sullivan

It may not look like it with the slush and snow on the ground but the calendar confirms that it is, in fact, February. February – the month of love, the month of presidents, and, most importantly, the month of pitchers and catchers. The Phillies are now under three weeks away from loading up the bats, balls, catching equipment, and more and heading down to Clearwater. Let’s take...

Phillies New Rule 5 Gems

Say hello to Andy Oliver and Odubel Herrera.  And as quickly as you greet them, you might just say adios shortly there after, because neither may last past Spring Training.  The life of a Rule 5 pick is glib. They spend time rotting away in the minor leagues, to then get a small glimmer of hope from a savior for a franchise, to probably being sent right back to the same organization they...

Vin Mazzaro is the odd man out in the bullpen

The final roster decisions for Opening Day 2014 have been made by the Pirates today. Most of the moves were predictable; Chris Stewart and Jeff Locke are headed to the disabled list, Travis Ishikawa was put on the roster and Andy Oliver was outrighted to Triple-A (which means removed from the 40-man roster) to make room for him. The one big lingering decision was the final bullpen...
