A.J. Burnett struggled as the Philadelphia Phillies woeful Spring Training continued at Ed Smith Stadium against the Orioles.

Burnett and Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez gave up a combined 10 earned runs on 11 hits and […]

The Philadelphia Phillies and Atlanta Braves paid tribute to Jim Fregosi before they faced off in Grapefruit League play at Bright House Field in Clearwater.

After the first seven games of Grapefruit League play, the Philadelphia Phillies rank last in offense with a .194 team average. Seven games is hardly enough to draw any conclusions, but after the Phillies offensive woes of last season, the early indicators are not good. This is a team built for the big inning and […]
It seems like every spring training, we have some ex-player talking trash about the Rangers in the media. This year, much to my dismay, it’s Ian Kinsler. I was saddened the day he was traded as he has been my favorite player for the past few seasons. After reading his comments to ESPN today, I’m […]
The Philadelphia Phillies were under the lights for a rare night game at Bright House Field. Cliff Lee and the Blue Jays R.A. Dickey each got the start as most of the Phillies starters were in the lineup. Spring Training Notes: Jimmy Rollins was a last minute scratch after taking batting practice. Rollins has […]

The Philadelphia Phillies lost another game today in Port Charlotte to the Rays. Despite a few injuries and another game with an anemic offense, there were some encouraging signs for the Phils. Roberto Hernandez looked the Fausto Carmona of old. He had command of all of his pitches, had some pop on his fastball, and […]

On the show we talked about the disaster that is the Knicks. On had some good Phillies insight from Florida from Bill Zeltman & Nicolette Tropiano.
Okay, so if we’re gonna do this, then let’s get it out of the way. ******. It’s the single most horrible word in the English language and conjures up every terrible feeling that comes along with it. It’s offensive, burdensome, and I genuinely feel sick to my stomach that I even typed that with its […]
The Philadelphia Phillies had an exciting weekend of action facing the Yankees and Pirates. Fans in Tampa were treated to CC Sabathia and Hidiki Kuroda’s first 2014 appearances and Hiroshima Tanaka and Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez’s American debuts. Sabathia and Kuroda looked in midseason form while Tanaka was as advertised. Tanaka has an unfair split finger […]

That Ethan Martin, who had pitched to four Blue Jays in the bottom of the fifth inning in yesterday’s Grapefruit League game, was taken out of the game because of discomfort in his right shoulder, especially as his pitching velocity is down in comparison to last season. He is today seeing a doctor to find […]
