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...

Phillies Ace- Jerome Williams

Sizing Up Sandberg: Rosenthal suggests Sandberg may be on hot seat

Ryne Sandberg, by all indications, is Ruben Amaro’s guy.
