Amaro Attempts to Reconstruct Crap Team

The bitter taste of the Phillies 2014 last place finish in the NL East is still fresh and gag worthy in everyone's mouth.  That hasn't stopped Ruben Amaro from attempting to reconstruct the same ****** team for 2015.  Jerome Williams - extended for 1 year $2.5MGrady Sizemore - extended for 1 year $2MCesar Jimenez - avoids arbitrationIt's not that any of those players...

Phils Re-Sign Sizemore, Jimenez

The Phillies announced on Thursday that they have re-signed outfielder Grady Sizemore and relief pitcher Cesar Jimenez, both to one year contracts. The Sizemore experiment was fun, but he clearly doesn’t have much left in the tank, at least from what he showed us last season. Jimenez ended up having a pretty good 2014 season, with a 1.69 ERA in 16 appearances.

*Quick Cincinnati Reds series preview: the Phillies will run out 3 starting pitchers with a combined 4 wins this season, while the Reds counter with 3 guys who collectively have 18 wins.  'nuff said. *Cesar Jimenez has been designated for assignment to make room for utility infielder Ronny Cedeno.  Apparently the Phillies don't like it when relievers actually prevent runs...

The Phillies at Nine Weeks- Ruben Must Go

Well, Ruben Amaro Jr. is lost, folks. First, he sent the only legitimate power threat on the bench, Darin Ruf, to AAA to create space for Phillippe Aumont and Cesar Jimenez (Jeff Manship went to the DL too), then Aumont served up a two-run homer to take the loss Sunday...

Replacing Manship and Ruf will be Phillippe Aumont and Cesar Jimenez, both right-handed relievers. After 28 innings in two days, the bullpen needed some...

Phillies' Howard just letting his bat do the talking

Ryan Howard does not want to discuss how good he’s feeling this spring. Judging by his play Tuesday, which marked the first game of spring, it’s easy to assume he’s feeling OK. Howard went 2-for-2 on a toasty day at Bright House Field, his second hit a solo smash to center field off lefty Cesar Jimenez. His first hit — off southpaw Jesse Biddle — was an RBI single to right...

Amaro Busy Building a Contender

Look out Major League Baseball, because Ruben Amaro Jr. is tearing through the free agent market, leaving the cupboards bare for those that snooze.  The week started off with a bang with news of Marlon Byrd being signed.  He easily adds 10 wins himself.  Then the minor league deal given to Shawn Camp.  Hello, Mr. 8th Inning!  Now, Rube doles out a trio of minor league contracts...

Phillies Season Ends with Ugly Loss to Braves

The Phillies season ends at 73 wins, 89 losses after an ugly 12-5 defeat in the finale against the Atlanta Braves. It’s the most losses in a season since they hit 97 losses in 2000. On the opposite end, the Atlanta Braves, winners of the NL East, finish the year 96-66. On this day, the Phillies would be undone by the fact that their bullpen had to pitch the entire game again.

Cesar Jimenez records putout by tagging runner with bare hand (Video)

Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Cesar Jimenez tagged Miami Marlins runner Christian Yelich with his bare hand on a grounder to first, but was given credit for the putout anyway, in a horrendous call during Wednesday night's game at Marlin Park. It happened in the bottom of the seventh inning as Yelich hit a slow roller down the first base line. Phillies first baseman Kevin...

First Base Umpire Gets The Wool Pulled Over His Eyes, Makes Horrendous Call

This is one of the worst (and most hilarious) calls I have seen made by an umpire in a very long while. C.B. Bucknor was the first base umpire who got quite fooled by pitcher Cesar Jimenez (who was covering first base) who faked tagging baserunner Christian Yelich. C.B. just conveniently forgot that the ball had to actually be in the hand that touched the runner. We all make mistakes...
