Howard, Revere Power Phils Past Marlins

Coming into Tuesday’s game against the Marlins, Ryan Howard was homerless and in a heavy slump at the plate. But he had himself a good night. He went 2-3 with 2 RBI and a walk–and hit his first home run of the year. That home run, a two-run shot in the sixth, put the Phils ahead 4-3 and proved to be the eventual game winner. Ben Revere, who was also in a bit of a slump, hit a...

Does Ben Revere, batting .167 with one walk, need to change his approach? He says no

Along with the emergence and rise of center fielder Odubel Herrera has been the fall of former center fielder Ben Revere. Already having lost his spot as the team's center fielder, Revere also lost his spot in the batting order. After 42 at bats, Revere has just seven hits, for...

Ben Revere: ‘My manhood kind of got hurt a little bit’ on great catch (video)

Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Ben Revere has developed a penchant throughout his MLB career for having the flair for the dramatic in the way he goes all-out while making spectacular catches. Oftentimes, such fearlessness in the field can come at the expense of the 26-year-old’s potential well-being. Revere was back at it again during Monday’s 2-0...Read More The post Ben...

Harang Solid Again, But Offense Kept Quiet

Aaron Harang was solid yet again in his second start in a Phillies uniform, pitching six innings of one-run ball against the Mets. While solid on the mound, Harang was unable to help his cause at the plate when he botched a bunt with runners on first and second, which allowed Met’s starting pitcher Jacob deGram to get the lead out at third. Ben Revere appropriately followed with...

Predicting the Philadelphia Phillies Season

PHILADELPHIA — It could be a long season for Philadelphia Phillies fans, or it could be a painless one. But, nevertheless, below I spew out seven bold predictions for the organization in 2015. Foremost, I think Ryan Howard will finish top-ten in batting average and home runs in the National League (NL) this season. Along with impressing into those categories, I think the veteran...

Ben Revere, Who Has Two Homers In 1,905 At-Bats, Hits Spring Walk-Off (Video)

There are plenty of power hitters in MLB. Ben Revere isn’t one of them. In fact, the Philadelphia Phillies outfielder has become quite prolific at not hitting long balls. In 1,905 career regular season at-bats, Revere has hit two over the fences, and they both came last season. If this spring is any indication, though, the light-hitting 26-year-old might be in for a power surge...

Report: Phillies outfielder Ben Revere is available for trade

View image | The Phillies currently have an all-lefthanded outfield, none with real power. Rule 5 pick from the Texas Rangers organization, Odubel Herrera, has played himself into the starting lineup, and rightfully so.

Do the 2015 Phillies have the worst outfield in MLB history?

In 2009 the Phillies outfield hit 88 homers, knocked in 279 runs, and combined for a .851 OPS.  The Phils won their their third straight division crown and lost to the Yankees in the World Series.  That outfield included Shane Victorino who only hit ten round-trippers, while Raul Ibanez (34) and Jayson Werth (36) led the charge.

Meet Odubel Herrera: The Phillies Opening Day Center Fielder

Last weekend, Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg indicated the team is moving Ben Revere from center field to left field to make room for Odubel Herrera — a speedy slap hitter they plucked from the Rangers in the rule 5 draft last winter. Although he’s second baseman by trade, Herrera apparently showed enough outfield range this spring to convince the Phillies brass that...

Phillies Move Ben Revere to Left Field

With only one week remaining before the regular season, Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg has made his final crucial decision. The decision was to move Ben Revere from Center Field to Left Field. Since joining the Phillies, Revere has shown subpar defense in Center Field. While his speed is among the best in the major leagues, he often fails to utilize it by taking odd routes to fly...
