Giles’ Rookie Season is Best Historically Among Phils Freshman

There have been a number of amazing relief pitching performances in the Major Leagues this year. The resurrections of once top prospects Wade Davis (9-2, 3 saves, 0.93 ERA) and Andrew Miller (14.84 K/9 IP) have gotten a lot of attention, as has the meteoric rise of Yankees’ reliever Dellin Betances (1.33 ERA, 13.50 K/9 IP). Aroldis Chapman (2.20 ERA, 17.45 K/9 IP) is averaging...

Rollins return still uncertain

Jimmy Rollins hasn’t played in a game for the Philadelphia Phillies since September 8th because of a strained hamstring. Rollins has been working out, running the bases, but the team is uncertain when he’ll actually return. My question is why even bother? We’re entering the final week of the season and for a team not in the race why not give the kids some action. “There...

Giles Notches First MLB Save, Phils Win 3-0

A-Okay

Jerome Williams showed again today why he deserves to be in the Phillies 2015 starting rotation. Since joining the Phils, all he’s done is throw quality starts and keep the opposition honest. He’s gone at least six innings and allowed two runs or less in four of his last six starts. Today was more of […]

Sizing Up Sandberg: Papelbon puts skipper in tough spot

Nice move: Ryne Sandberg has looked a lot like a robot this season. Everything about him, from his cliché, seemingly auto-prepared answers, to his actions in the dugout and even being around him he just seems very robotic. Well on Tuesday, he made a nice gesture that showed a more...

A Lil' Something Special About Ben Revere

The last Philadelphia Phillies players to qualify for the batting title and hit over .300 on the season were Chase Utley (.332) and Aaron Roward (.309) back in 2007.  Fast forward seven years later and now we see Ben Revere on the verge of breaking the dry spell.  He's currently sitting on a .309 batting average (good for 4th in the NL) with 9 games remaining in the 2014...

End of season post-mortem: Philadelphia Phillies

The Phillies just don’t know when to quit. They really should quit. It was another season of the Phillies trying to win with almost the exact same roster that lost 89 games the year before, only older. As you, but not Ruben Amaro Jr., probably guessed, it didn’t go very well. Preseason Prediction: I think third place is the ceiling for the Phillies, and the bottom of the National...
