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...

The Phillies have begun planning for spring as news dropped today that they’ve invited four non-roster invitees,  two of which are new additions, to camp in February. Outfielder Leandro Castro and lefty hurler Cesar Jimenez are two talents who spent this past season in the organization that will be with the big league club when spring training begins next year.  Additionally...

Bye-Bye...Well, Sorta

The Phillies have been doing some house cleaning, as Cesar Jimenez, JC Ramirez, John Lannan, Casper Wells, and Roger Bernadina were all outrighted off the 40-man roster.

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...

Christian Yelich Completely Robbed of Base Hit by Blown Call From C.B. Bucknor (GIF)

2013 certainly hasn’t been the year of the umpire. Granted, Wednesday night’s matchup between the Miami Marlins and the Philadelphia Phillies was a pretty meaningless game in the last week of September, but either way, you hate to see a blown call like this. In the seventh inning of the tied game, with two men on and two out, Marlins outfielder Christian Yelich hit a chopper...
