  2. Miguel Gonzalez not sharp in Phillies debut

    Mar 1, 2014, 3:52 PM EDT


    The name Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez first entered Philadelphia Phillies fans’ lexicons way back in July.

Gonzalez faced 11 batters in 1.2 innings of work, struggling mightily…

    Feb 28, 2014, 4:37 PM EDT


    And just like that, another chapter of Philadelphia Eagles’ wide receiver drama comes to a close—with a cliffhanger ending of course. The team agreed to terms with impending free-agent wide receiver Jeremy Maclin on Friday, however on a one-year contract that puts the two sides in roughly the same position 12 months from now. The…

    All those top-10 Allen Iverson lists are circulating the internet for a reason. The Philadelphia 76ers are set to raise The Answer’s No. 3 into the Wells Fargo Center rafters in a halftime ceremony on Saturday night.

  8. Riley Cooper gets 5 years, $10 million guaranteed officially

    Feb 27, 2014, 12:33 PM EDT


    While Riley Cooper fans got their wish on Thursday when the wide receiver signed a five-year, $25 million deal to remain with the Philadelphia Eagles, my feelings on the new pact would be based almost entirely on its structure. The money and length were roughly what I predicted they would be, but the devil is…
