2016 MLB Postseason Primer and Prediction: Hamels, Utley, Ruiz, Werth go for Ring No. 2

On Sunday the Philadelphia Phillies and the fans had a chance to bid farewell to the last remaining (big) piece from the 2008 World Series championship squad, Ryan Howard. With Howard very likely to have played his final game in Phillies pinstripes and the season comes to a close, Phillies fans can still keep an interested eye in the postseason fun as some former member of the 2008...

Everything about Ryan Howard’s farewell was perfect

Phillies fans didn’t get a chance to give key members of the 2008 World Series championship squad like Jimmy Rollins, Chase Utley, Cole Hamels and Carlos Ruiz a proper sendoff. Fortunately, the fans finally got a chance to share their love and appreciation for the last man standing, Ryan Howard.

MLB Farewell Tour: David Ortiz vs Derek Jeter

Two years ago, future Hall of Famer Derek Jeter was making his final appearances at MLB stadiums across the nation. Fans far and wide were lining up at the gates of each American League ballpark and a handful of National League stadiums to see the career-long Yankee shortstop play in that particular city one final time. Fast forward two years later, and beloved Red Sox designated...

Phillies sliding into summer

Today marks the first day of summer, which used to be considered hitting season for the Philadelphia Phillies. Not so much anymore. The Phillies are on quite the slide after once holding the top spot in the way-too-early National League Wild Card spot. Remember when the Phillies were actually breathing down the neck of the first-place Washington Nationals? That was fun. After dropping...

Phillie Phanatic deemed more qualified for president than Donald Trump

The final battle between presidential hopefuls is pretty much locked up with GOP frontrunner Donald Trump and Democratic leader Hillary Clinton ready to do battle for a seat in the White House. Of course, there may be another worthy candidate worth consideration. Without trying to get involved in too much political talk here, it has been simply amazing to see the rise of Donald Trump...

Jeanmar Gomez notches six-out save against best team in baseball

With a 3-1 lead in the eighth inning, the Phillies appeared to have the game in a position they would prefer to have for their final six outs. Hector Neris entered in the eighth inning looking to get the game to Jeanmar Gomez with the lead. He did that, but not quite how you chalk it up. The Phillies were nursing a 2-1 lead in the seventh inning when Odubel Herrera singled home...

Phillies 6, Marlins 5: Jeanmar Gomez leads MLB with 11 saves

Phillies battle back and win wild game in Miami to take weekend series Put together a list of the things you probably did not expect to say at any point during the 2016 season, and “Jeanmar Gomez leads all of baseball in saves” was probably among them. After the Phillies battled back a couple of times in a back-and-forth game against the Miami Marlins on Mother’s Day, however...

Cardinals 5, Phillies 4: Growing pains can be a good thing

Jeanmar Gomez blew his first save of the season as the Phillies let one slip away in a goofy game in St. Louis You know how you can tell the Phillies are playing baseball you actually care about? When they let a win turn into a loss and it enrages you for any number of reasons. Wednesday night served up a few curveballs at the Phillies, and I’m not referring to pitches from St...

Aaron Nola shows off ace-material in 1-0 win vs. Cardinals

Nola has gone 20 straight innings pitched without allowing a run as Howard’s solo homer proves to be game-winner Whether or not young Phillies starting pitcher Aaron Nola turns out to be the true ace of the rotation for years to come still remains to be seen, but he did exactly what you would expect from an ace on the mound Tuesday night in St. Louis. A night after the Phillies...

Phillies wearing 1976 pillbox throwbacks for retro nights

Phillies baseball is fun again

The 2016 Phillies may still end the year with a losing record, but they have already become fun to watch again. Coming off a second straight three-game sweep of their opponent, the Philadelphia Phillies are riding one of the hottest runs in baseball having won nine of their last 10 games. The Phillies are five games above the .500 mark, and dare we say just 2.5 games out of first...

Should Curt Schilling remain on Phillies Wall of Fame?

The ace of the 1993 Philadelphia Phillies once again got himself in hot water, and this time it cost him. Should the Phillies step in and remove Curt Schilling from the team’s Wall of Fame too? The Philadelphia Phillies have been adding names to the team’s Wall of Fame annually since 1978. To date, no name has ever come off the Wall of Fame, which now resides in Ashburn Alley...

Chase Utley was dabbing in 2007 after wild win vs. Mets

Remember that summer of 2007 when the Phillies gave the Mets absolute nightmares? That was a lot of fun. One of the highlights of the season came on August 30, 2007 at the end of a four-game series with the Mets. New York was stomping the Phillies but the good guys battled back and walked off winners when Chase Utley knocked a base hit to right field on a full count against Billy...

Will the Phillies lose 100 games in 2016?

Do not take this as a negative post for the sake of being negative about the 2016 Philadelphia Phillies. By most accounts, this is expected to be a long summer when it comes to wins and losses, with the wins likely to be few and far between for this young group of Phillies looking to establish the core for what could be the future of the franchise. As I have said time and time again...

Maikel Franco batting practice bomb cracks Freddy Galvis’ windshield

You would think we have reached a point where baseball players would make every attempt to avoid parking their cars in any area where long distance home run balls in batting practice would avoid getting hit. Unfortunately for Freddy Galvis, that was not the case today. A long bomb launched by Maikel Franco in batting practice today leading up to the Grapefruit League opener against...
