Watch Kyle Lohse tackle Ryan Howard while running out a hit

Wednesday night was a strange night for Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Kyle Lohse, not just because he notched three hits but also because of the bizarre series of events that occurred on his last one. With the Brewers leading the Philadelphia Phillies, 6-2, in the top of the sixth, Lohse, who already had two hits on the night, led off the inning by aggressively hacking at the first pitch...

Storyline: Fast-Forward to August’s Phillies

Projecting the 25-man roster beyond the trading deadline, the front office of the Philadelphia Phillies can envision Maikel Franco defending the hot corner and extinguishing a rally with an all-out effort. And they can anticipate a walk-off, upper-deck homer to ignite a winning streak and know a large crowd of cheering fans will become more common next April, May and June.

Cameron Rupp trying to make case to become Phillies' next long-term catcher

For nearly the last decade, the Philadelphia Phillies have relied upon one principal backstop behind the plate, but now, as a new rebuilding era is ushered in, Cameron Rupp is auditioning to become the Phillies' new franchise catcher. Carlos Ruiz has been a staple at catcher for the Phillies much like Chase Utley has been at second base and Ryan Howard at first. However, that wave...

How did the Philadelphia Phillies fall so far?

It’s hard to believe the Philadelphia Phillies are still the last Major League team to win 100 or more games in a season. The 2011 club that went 102-60 seems like ancient history, as this year’s version currently holds the worst mark in the big leagues at 23-46, with a -120 run differential to boot. Many are calling for the head of general manager Ruben Amaro as the team...

Another Day, Another Game, Another Loss

Another day, another game, another loss is what Phillies baseball has become.  Same ****, different toilet. Thoughts:*This team is so bad, it really doesn't matter if they play worse.  Trading any, or all of, Ben Revere, Jonathan Papelbon, Aaron Harang, Carlos Ruiz, and Ryan Howard makes sense. Papelbon is an elite closer, but rarely gets save opportunities.  Harang is a decent...

Philadelphia Phillies are not an easy fix

The Philadelphia Phillies are having another disastrous season. Since the Phillies 2011 campaign when they went 102-60, the team has not eclipsed a .500 winning percentage. There is no easy fix for this team, there is a much bigger problem than that. The Phillies have multiple big money contracts that, in hindsight, might not have been the best deals for them.
