Looks like the end is near: Phillies pitcher Cliff Lee puts Philadelphia home up for sale

Phillies left-hander Cliff Lee could be approaching the end of his baseball career, thanks to elbow issues. While Lee gives it one more shot to try to rehab his arm through rest, Lee must be looking ahead to an imminent end of his career. Or at least, his Phillies career....

Tribe 101 with Prof. Jacob: Start the season already!

I am starting to learn a thing or two the Cleveland Indians, and I want to keep that going. I have decided that 2015 is the year in which I will dive back into baseball after years of being only mildly familiar with the sport, and my anticipation for Opening Day is starting to boil over. I have missed the game, you see. I loved baseball as much as sleeping and eating when I was...

Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez Among Latest Round of Cuts

Per Todd Zolecki of MLB.com the Phillies have announced the latest round of cuts.

Why the Phillies are struggling to trade Cole Hamels

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports Perhaps the most interesting trade piece to watch throughout the spring and throughout the season is Cole Hamels. There is no doubt that Hamels is a very attractive player, so why on earth can the Phillies not find a deal? Why don’t we look at some possible reasons. Asking price – Perhaps the most glaring reason, the Phillies are clearly asking...

Buchanan Poised for Breakout Season?

After it was announced that Cliff Lee will be placed on the 60-day disabled list, David Buchanan will need to step up for the Phillies. So far this spring, he has done that. The 25-year-old right-hander could be as high as the number two starter behind Cole Hamels in the starting rotation if his success on the mound continues. In 11 innings-pitched this spring, Buchanan has held...

Cliff Lee Placed on 60-Day Disabled List

Philadelphia Phillies’ pitcher Cliff Lee has been placed on the 60-day DL after again suffering from a left forearm strain. The strain is the same one that derailed Lee’s 2014 season, in which he started only 12 games. From the looks of things, that strain is determined to derail his 2015 season as well.

The most devastating injuries of spring training

Spring Training injuries are just the worst, right? The games don’t even count and yet every year a few teams have the entire course of their season derailed because a key player suffered a major injury.

Retitled Storyline: Lee Impacts the Phillies’ Plans

By early May, 10 other favorites on the Philadelphia Phillies will follow Cole Hamels‘ performance on Opening Day. Surprisingly, Ruben Amaro Jr. has pieced together a rotation and a bullpen, which–barring an injury, multiple ineffective appearances or a trade–would be a 12-man staff with the addition of Cliff Lee. Keep in mind, the opposite is true for positional players...
