Phillies Average Tickets Under $70 All Weekend Against Nationals

The Philadelphia Phillies and their fans know they’re in a rebuilding phase. Last year made that clear, as the Phillies were one of the worst teams with just 73 wins. Despite supposedly being one of the worst teams in baseball, the Phillies turned around from a disappointing 8-0 loss on Opening Day to take the Boston Red Sox down, 4-2 on Wednesday. Philadelphia would end up losing...

Jonathan Papelbon doesn’t feel like a Phillie, because he’s never been accepted as a Phillie

As the Phillies were in the process of picking up their first win of the season Wednesday night against the Boston Red Sox, the attention shifted to quotes from Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon, in which he suggested he has never really felt like a Phillie. “The Red Sox are a part of who I am, man,” Papelbon said in a story for The Boston Globe. “I don’t really feel much...

Francoeur homers, Harang holds down the fort as Phillies beat Red Sox

When the Phillies made offseason moves to acquire Aaron Harang and Jeff Francoeur, not many were expecting the roster moves to turn the Phillies into a division contender. On Wednesday night though, each proved valuable as the Phillies evened the season-opening series against the Boston Red Sox with a 4-2 victory. Francoeur broke out the laser show with a three-run home run over...

Do’s and Don’ts of attending a Phillies Game

Going to Citizens Bank Park can be a wonderful experience, even when things look bleak with the team taking the field in red pinstripes. As awesome as going to a game at the ballpark can be, there are some annoying things many fans seem to do throughout the game that can be distracting. So, as you head out to a Phillies game this season, herer are some things you can do to ensure...

Phillies baseball is here, and I do care

Over the years I have come to be a rather optimistic Phillies fan even when times looked dark. To me, that’s what being a fan is all about, and I am not about to change that stance any time soon. The Philadelphia Phillies open the 2015 Major League Baseball season Monday afternoon at Citizens Bank Park against the Boston Red Sox of the American League. The expectations for the...

Dismissed Bloomsburg player issued apology to Mo’ne Davis on Twitter

Bloomsburg University dismissed Joey Casselberry from the baseball team over the weekend after a tweet of his regarding local Little League all-star Mo’ne Davis was published in very poor taste. Casselberry referred to Davis as a slut in a response to the news Disney is going to be using the Davis story as inspiration for an upcoming Disney Channel movie. Bloomsburg acted on Casselberry’s...

Out of the Batter’s Box – Phillies let win slip away, A-Rod back today and Red Sox trade rumors

Phillies let a win get away, but some positives could be seen. The team gets back at it today with another game against the Yankees as Alex Rodriguez makes his return to the field. 1. Phillies blow Grapefruit League opener, tie Yankees 5-5 Yesterday, with the Phillies leading 5-1 late in the game, I jokingly tweeted this. I was only half-kidding. Mario Hollands had a rough Grapefruit...

Phillies 5, Yankees 5: Ryan Howard off to good start

You should never take one game in the spring and use it as a predictor for what will happen the rest of the month, or the season. But it was encouraging to see Ryan Howard get off to a nice start in his spring training debut Tuesday afternoon in Clearwater. Howard, hitting fourth in Ryne Sandberg‘s line-up, went two-for-two in his two plate appearances, with his first hit of the...

It’s the start of a new month. Spring training baseball is officially here (tomorrow), so let’s get it all started on the right foot wiht a return to the daily round-up. 1.

Phillies open spring by dropping exhibition to D2 University of Tampa

The Phillies gave up five runs in the seventh inning to University of Tampa Sunday. The exhibition was not a good start for reliever Phillippe Aumont, but for the most part there is not too much to be overreacting about with this loss. In the first dose of spring baseball Sunday afternoon, the Philadelphia Phillies blew a 2-0 lead to Division 2 University of Tampa.  Shortly after...

Baseball is back today

Sure, it may be just an exhibition game against the University of Tampa, but I’ll take it. The Philadelphia Phillies are back in action today. The team may not be very good this season, but this is still a warm thought on this chilly day in the Philadelphia area. #Phillies lineup for Sunday vs @UofTampa. 1:05 pm game time.

ESPN to air two Phillies spring training games

With spring training here, we are starting to look forward to spring training baseball in the Grapefruit League. While we still are not sure of the local Phillies Grapefruit coverage just yet, we do know at least two games will be airing this spring. ESPN will broadcast two separate Grapefruit League games involving the Phillies. According to Awful Announcing, the March 19 game against...

At this point, are we really expecting anything from Domonic Brown?

One of the biggest sports cliches I happen to loathe is “It is what it is.” That said, I think at this stage I am willing to suggest Domonic Brown is what he is. So what is Brown? A sketchy outfielder with a chance to hit .250 and maybe hit 20 home runs. This is not the Domonic Brown that Ruben Amaro needed to go out of his way to keep in various trade deals in recent seasons...

Daulton was diagnosed with two brain tumors back in the summer fo 2013. He shared the news via Twitter and said he is appreciative of the support Phillies fans have given him through his fight.

Spring Training preview for Philadelphia Phillies tickets

Ryne Sandberg begins his second season managing the Philadelphia Phillies with little hopes of success heading into the season. After a disappointing 2013, the Phillies tried to “reload” rather than “rebuild” and misfired. After finishing the season with a 73-89 record, the team traded long time shortstop Jimmy Rollins, which made it clear that the Phillies are in a rebuilding...

Cliff Lee says you if have a question, you ask the 8-ball

On Day 2 of Phillies pitchers and catchers in spring training, Cliff Lee took to the microphone to answer questions from the media. He came prepared. As David Puddy might say, you have a question, you ask the eight ball. Lee did just that, redirecting a handful of questions about his future and the Phillies to his handy-dandy eight-ball. It was just a few weeks ago there was a rash...

Phillies are not being unreasonable by holding on to Cole Hamels

On July 26, 2000 the Philadelphia Phillies traded 33-year old Curt Schilling to the Arizona Cardinals. In return the Phillies received Omar Daal, Nelson Figueroa, Vicente Padilla and Travis Lee. Schilling went on to appear in three All-Star Games, win 20 games three times and win the World Series with two different teams. The Phillies got two seasons out of Daal, Figueroa was picked...
