Amongst all of the discourse surrounding the Philadelphia Phillies bullpen—who the team should keep, who the team should trade for, who the team should get rid of—one reliever that seems to commonly get glossed over is Connor Brogdon.
In seven games, the 28-year-old outfielder failed to make much of an impression. Jorge Bonifacio was truly a one-hit wonder this season, in that he only had one hit and every time he came up to bat I wondered who he was and why he was there.
13 years ago, Philadelphia Phillies starter Joe Blanton hit a solo homerun in Game 4 of the 2008 World Series in a 10-2 Phillies win. As you can tell by the score, the Phillies got a lot of offense going in the game, but Blanton's homer was the most memorable.
News? News! The World Series starts tonight, a matchup between two teams that are pretty similar. I mentioned yesterday how I’m going with the Braves winning in six, but I do believe the Astros have the ability to take it far.
There are not many Hall of Fame players with numbers as impressive as Mike Schmidt's. He is probably the greatest Phillie of all time and is by far the most decorated. He grew up in Dayton, Ohio with his family, and was always hitting in the batting cages, working on his craft.
The Philadelphia Phillies announced on Monday that they have hired Bobby Dickerson as the club's new infield coach. Dickerson replaces former infield coach Juan Castro, who the Phillies fired earlier this month, along with hitting coach Joe Dillon.
The 23-year-old right-handed pitching prospect quickly became a fan favorite because... moustache? Hans Crouse came over to the Phillies on July 30 as part of the Kyle Gibson/Ian Kennedy/Spencer Howard trade.
2021 was nothing if not erratic for Mickey Moniak. He was called up to the Phillies seven times, yet he spent only 31 days on the major league roster. Shuttled back and forth between Allentown and Philadelphia, Moniak never found true stability.
Part one in our offseason series wondering about the Phillies multiverse The Braves are on the verge of representing the National League in the World Series this year, words that cause actual, physical pain to write.
As the month of October starts to come to a close, so does the historic happening of the Philadelphia Phillies to an extent. Although, as the postseason ends, the offseason begins, and with that comes a slew of roster moves throughout the league.
A lost season (and career?) for the former first round draft pick After an encouraging rookie season in 2019, Adam Haseley took a step back in 2020. The formerly strong defense was supplanted by questionable routes and misplays, and manager Joe Girardi didn’t seem to think that he was capable of hitting against left-handed pitching.
Richie Ashburn was born on March 19, 1927 in Tilden, Nebraska. From a young age, his father, Neil, saw great potential in his baseball ability. Neil had Richie play all sorts of sports as a kid, but he worked with his son on baseball the most.
As October winds down, notable events in Philadelphia Phillies history are getting harder and harder to come by. But for now, the 2008 and 2009 Philadelphia Phillies teams will have to keep things interesting.
In September of 1950, Robin Roberts and the Phillies held a commanding 7 ½ game lead for the National League pennant. A tough two-week losing streak brought them to the final game of the season as their lead shrank to just one game.
We are now about a week gone since the end of the Philadelphia Phillies‘ 2021 season. The good news: the Phillies had their first winning season. The Bad news: The Phillies were one game in the AL Wildcard race away from having the longest playoff drought in all of baseball.
While many baseball fans are testing out various World Series betting strategies, Phillies diehards are sat scratching their heads. After a gut wrenching end to the 2021 campaign, the team immediately started cleaning house.
Long, who has been the Nationals’ hitting coach for the past four seasons, will be reunited with manager Joe Girardi and bench coach Rob Thomson in Philadelphia. The trio worked together with the Yankees.
