Our 10 Worst Hitter Projections of 2014

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...

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...

Phillies Lose To Cards In 12

Dave Buchanan gave up just two runs over five innings, but the Phillies spoiled his outing in the sixth. They came back in the eighth to tie it, but eventually lost it in the 12th, 6-5. The game took nearly five full hours. Here are a few notes: - Jimmy Rollins collected his 450th stolen base of his career after he swiped a bag in the first inning. He stole another bag in the eighth...

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

Giants Drop Finale in Philly, End Road Trip 5-2

Philadelphia jumped out to a quick 1-0 lead against Tim Hudson in the bottom of the first. With one out, Jimmy Rollins doubled, moved to third on a passed ball, and scored on a single by Marlon Byrd.

Grady Sizemore Starts In CF For Phillies Tonight

The Philadelphia Phillies have called up former Red Sox outfielder Grady Sizemore from AAA—and he will start in center field tonight. Ben Revere—the primary starter at that position—is out with an injury. In 11 games for the Lehigh Valley IronPigs, Sizemore batted .283 with one HR and a .723 OPS. It will be interesting to see if his stay at Citizens Bank Park is as long as...

The Phillies went down 5-1 in the first inning to the Brewers via a Scooter Gennett homer and a Lyle Overbay grand slam off of Kyle Kendrick. But the Phillies offense remained patient, with eight out of the first nine hitters reaching base in the second inning to take a 6-5 lead. Domonic Brown would hit a solo homer, his sixth, in the third inning to extend the lead to 7-5 and would...
