Our 10 Worst Hitter Projections of 2014

One of my favorite parts of the year is the day after the season ends when the final numbers roll in and we can officially grade our projections. While most of them are close-but-not-perfect, there are always a handful we nail and a whole bunch we completely miss on. This week it’s these bests and worsts that I’ll be sharing with you, and we’ll begin this retrospective with...

A Lil' Something Special About Ben Revere

The last Philadelphia Phillies players to qualify for the batting title and hit over .300 on the season were Chase Utley (.332) and Aaron Roward (.309) back in 2007.  Fast forward seven years later and now we see Ben Revere on the verge of breaking the dry spell.  He's currently sitting on a .309 batting average (good for 4th in the NL) with 9 games remaining in the 2014...

End of season post-mortem: Philadelphia Phillies

The Phillies just don’t know when to quit. They really should quit. It was another season of the Phillies trying to win with almost the exact same roster that lost 89 games the year before, only older. As you, but not Ruben Amaro Jr., probably guessed, it didn’t go very well. Preseason Prediction: I think third place is the ceiling for the Phillies, and the bottom of the National...

Former Phils Finding Varying Degrees of Success on Contenders

With the Phillies firmly out the playoff race and few stories of interests to watch for outside of Ken Giles’ dominance, Ben Revere’s outside shot at the Phils’ first batting title since Richie Ashburn, and Ryan Howard having the worst 100 RBI season in the history of  baseball, attention has turned squarely to the playoff races. A few are in hand (the Nats, Orioles, and Angels...

Andrew McCutchen Hits Stand-Up, Inside-The-Park Home Run (Video)

Andrew McCutchen hit an inside-the-park homer against the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday, and it wasn’t even close to being contested. The Pittsburgh Pirates’ star outfielder launched one over the head of Phillies center fielder Ben Revere and high off the wall. By the time right fielder Grady Sizemore could even make a throw home, the speedy McCutchen was around third base...

Ben Revere’s fielding flub led to an Andrew McCutchen inside the parker

I have no idea what Ben Revere was thinking when he was trying to field this ball off the bat of Andrew McCutchen in the 5th inning on Wednesday. Seriously, what the hell? He wasn’t going to catch the ball, given how high it was hit off the wall. If Revere played it off the wall, he would have held McCutchen to an easy double. McCutchen’s homer tied the game at three, and Russell...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Breakout Players — Center Fielders

Center field is easily the glamour position in baseball. If you don’t believe me, then simply look at the preseason rankings. The top player on the board was a center fielder and two of the top five guys were center fielders. Of the top six performers at the position this season, five were drafted in the top 75 in Yahoo leagues. Obviously, looking for unsung heroes is going to...

Phillies 9, Nationals 8 (11 innings)

The Phillies rallied back from a pair of five-run deficits in posting one of their best wins of the season Friday night. They beat the NL East-leading Washington Nationals, 9-8, in 11 innings. The Phils rallied for three runs in the top of the ninth inning to tie the game at 7-7. All the runs came on a pair of home runs by Carlos Ruiz and Ben Revere against Washington closer Rafael...

Phils Outslug Nats In 11 Innings

Opportunity lost. The Braves had already been pounded by the Marlins in Miami 11-4, a win and the Nats would increase their lead in the National League East to eight games over Atlanta. Washington took a 7-4 lead over Philadelphia to the ninth, with Rafael Soriano summoned to close things out. Stop, it’s all down hill from here. The Phillies rallied back from multiple five-run...

Ben Revere, 50 Steal Seasons, and Historic Efficiency

Revere has quietly put together one of baseball’s all-time most efficient base-stealing campaigns of all time. Photo AP Since 1883, six Phillies combined to steal 50 or more bases 14 times. Some of the names are instantly recognizable by novice Phillies fans, like Juan Samuel and Ed Delahanty, some are great players seemingly lost to time, Sherry Magee and Billy Hamilton are examples...

Ryan Howard, Ben Revere, and RBIs

It’s a been argued over and over again, especially in Philadelphia, where Ryan Howard–one of the best RBI men in MLB over the years–calls home. And no, I’m not talking about whether to refer to multiple runs batted in as “RBI”, or “RBIs” (I’ll be using the latter in this post). I’m talking about the meaning of the stat. “RBIs don’t matter!”, say many believers...

Can Ben Revere Win The Batting Title?

All Placido Polanco Ben Revere does is hit. He’s been a hit machine recently, and has pushed himself up to 2nd in the NL in batting average, only behind Justin Morneau of the Rockies. But can he pass Morneau? Revere has been on an outstanding hot streak since June, leading MLB in average over that span. He also hasn’t struck out or walked much, either. Why he will win it Revere...

The Timberwolves do the right thing

The thing about a good trade for a bad team is that it’s going to hurt at the moment. It hurts to see what little talent the team has go elsewhere for projects and future potential. Think about what the Twins have done lately: Denard Span and Ben Revere were dealt in the same offseason, and center field has been a wasteland since. On the other hand, the return was a pair of pitchers...

Domonic Brown Still Out With Issue With Tonsils

Tonight represents the fourth straight game that Domonic Brown will not be in the Phillies' starting lineup. While some may have felt it was a combination of poor play while strong play from both Grady Sizemore and Ben Revere, there was a reason. In recent days, Brown was out with...

That was almost all the Phillies needed. Ryan Howard would plate in the third on a single...
