Are you convinced now, NBA?  After the Sixers coasted to one of the best records in the league, NBA experts warned that the team wasn't all it was cracked up to be and their record was simply the product of a cupcake schedule.  Well, after wins against the Magic, Bulls, Hawks and Lakers in the last week, it is fair to say the Sixers are for real.Their latest win came on Monday...

Phillies add Chad Qualls to the bullpen

The Phillies made a solid addition to their bullpen today, signing reliever Chad Qualls to a one year, 1.15 million dollar contract.  Qualls put up some decent numbers (3.51 ERA, 1.25 WHIP) last season, though he was pitching mostly in the pitcher-friendly confines of San Diego.  An 8 year veteran, the Phillies will be his 5th MLB team.  He is capable of pitching a lot of innings...

Phillies deal Wilson Valdez to Reds

The Phillies bench in 2012 will have one less familiar face: utility infielder Wilson Valdez has been traded to the Reds for lefty pitcher Jeremy Horst.  Valdez spent two seasons with the Phillies and was a mediocre injury replacement for Jimmy Rollins, Chase Utley and Placido Polanco.  While his bat was pretty awful, Valdez was at least a good-to-great fielder that was somewhat...

The Flyers played one of their worst games of the season on Thursday night, losing to the Islanders 4-1, but there was one interesting development in the game: Claude Giroux fought:  He certainly is much better with the stick than the fists.  Perhaps this will help him snap out of his offensive funk.
