Phillies-Mets Preview

While the Philadelphia Phillies' latest addition to the rotation could be showing promise, the relic of the New York Mets' staff is displaying some wear. Two pitchers separated by nearly 20 years in age square off Monday in New York with the Mets trying to shake another losing streak with a little offense. New York (24-21) was swept in three games in Pittsburgh with Sunday's 9-1...

Is Ryan Howard actually valuable again?

I know you’ve probably heard this before, but the Philadelphia Phillies are not a good baseball team. Sure, they are only seven games out of the first place Washington Nationals, but when one of your best hitters is Freddy Galvis, you know you’re in trouble. However, there is a player on the Phillies who has seemed to emerge from three-year long slump, someone who is somehow...

Ryan Howard Is The Hottest Man In Philadelphia

A few weeks ago, we noted that Ryan Howard seemed to be heating up at the plate. He was seeing the ball well, getting lots of solid contact, and finally started to hit some home runs. Since then, he’s hit .324/.370/.632, with five home runs–including one off a lefty yesterday–and 11 RBI. His 1.002 OPS is 7th in the NL among qualifiers over that time, and his .309 ISO (isolated...

Phillies Winning Streak; It Was Fun While It Lasted

The Phillies actually played some pretty good baseball over the past week. No, you didn’t misread that. I used the terms “Phillies” and “good baseball” in the same sentence. The Phillies finished up the ten game home stand quite well. After losing two-of-three to the Mets, then losing the first two games to Pittsburgh, the Phillies went on a roll. They tied up the Pittsburgh...

Ryan Howard: Any Trade Value Left?

It’s quite remarkable to look back at the 08′ and 09′ Philadelphia Phillies teams and see how much has changed. The Phillies went from being World Series contenders year in and year out to suddenly being old and rebuilding. The Phillies roster was certainly not filled with spring chickens during their run, but that rebuild mindset came like a thief in the night. It’s easy...
