  1. Cole Hamels gives the most Cole Hamels answer when asked which Olympic sport he’d play

    Apr 18, 2014, 4:08 PM EDT

    Phillies Spring 2014 - Cole Hamels

    The Phillies and Braves got rained out the other night which meant plenty of filler programming on the TV. One of the segments had the Phillies players and coaches answer some quirky questions. The guys were posed the question: “if you could play any one Olympic sport, which would it be?” Cole Hamels gave the…

  2. The five best/worst tweets about Donovan McNabb’s mugshot

    Apr 17, 2014, 3:47 PM EDT

    mcnabb.mugshot

    The Maricopa County (Arizona) sheriff’s office released a mugshot of former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb on Thursday afternoon but it was initially unclear what alleged crime was committed. Deadspin then tracked down a criminal traffic citation from back in January, and PFT says the two are likely related. It’s still not really clear what…

  3. Wayne Simmonds on Hartsy and Voracek playoff beard dye jobs: ‘Gingers should stick to being gingers’

    Apr 17, 2014, 1:47 PM EDT

    Hartnell.beard

    “I couldn’t let [Voracek] do it alone. After dinner last night I went to the drug store and got the Just for Men.” That was Scott Hartnell’s explanation for the dark dye job on his playoff beard this morning. If you missed it, Jake Voracek showed up at practice yesterday with a dyed beard of…

  4. Brett Brown is absolutely nervous like the rest of us about the NBA Draft Lottery

    Apr 17, 2014, 12:09 PM EDT

    Brett Brown

    Brett Brown tells it like it is. That’s one of the things most Philadelphians like about him. When the guys in suits on Draft Lottery Night reveal the teams hidden in those cards determined by some ping pong balls bouncing around, Brown is absolutely going to be nervous. “That night when you find out where…

  5. Today’s Phillies game probably won’t be very well attended based on these photos

    Apr 17, 2014, 10:59 AM EDT

    scenes from Wednesday night

      It’s currently in the mid 40′s here in Philadelphia. It could get as balmy as 50 or 51 by first pitch around 1:05 pm this afternoon. But how many people really want to go sit in the cold to watch a team that couldn’t put up a single run on the Braves last night…

  6. It doesn’t matter what words I put here because Keith Olbermann (@KeithOlbermann) says you can’t read anyway

    Apr 17, 2014, 9:21 AM EDT

    Olbermann

    Again, I’m not sure why I’ve continued typing in this space when Keith Olbermann says Philadelphia Flyers fans are illiterate. A man a plan a canal panama. Have you seen this column written by a dog? It’s pretty good. More insightful than anything on Olbermann’s show. But Flyers fans can’t read it. Blah blah blah…

  7. Cliff Lee struck out 13 Braves but Julio Teheran was filthier

    Apr 17, 2014, 8:04 AM EDT

    Cliff Lee, Evan Gattis

    You probably don’t want to watch the above “highlight” video from last night’s 1-0 loss to the Braves. It’s basically Julio Teheran manhandling the Phillies. Put it this way, when a Ryan Howard infield single is one of the highlights of the Phils’ night at the plate, it was not a pretty night. Cliff Lee…

  8. Interesting theory on Jake Voracek’s new dyed playoff beard

    Apr 16, 2014, 2:48 PM EDT

    artist rendering

    The NHL playoffs are back tomorrow and with them come the annual tradition of attempting to put Gillette and the Dollar Shave Club out of business. Much of the buzz at Flyers practice this morning — aside from Ray Emery being the guy in net tomorrow night — was about Jake Voracek’s beard. He’s had…

  9. ‘Duck Dynasty’ can actually cheer up a pitcher who gave up back-to-back-to-back jacks

    Apr 16, 2014, 12:08 PM EDT

    rosenberg

    B.J. Rosenberg accomplished the uber rare feat of facing three batters on Monday evening and allowing each of them to deposit a ball in the outfield seats. That does not happen everyday. So how did Rosenberg cope with being one of the goats in the Phillies loss? The Inquirer’s Matt Gelb put on his reporting…

  10. Mason out: Ray Emery is your Flyers goaltender to begin the playoffs

    Steve Mason will NOT play tomorrow. — Sarah Baicker (@sbaickerCSN) April 16, 2014 Ray Emery on starting Game 1 against the Rangers: “I’m excited about it. I feel like I can do well.” #FlyersTalk — Sarah Baicker (@sbaickerCSN) April 16, 2014 Steve Mason was not at the Flyers practice facility this morning over in New…

  11. Last night’s Phillies loss in one neck-breaking GIF

    Apr 15, 2014, 12:02 PM EDT

    uggla

    The bullpen. Roberto Hernandez sweated out six innings of two run ball and the bats put together some magic to the tune of a 5-run eighth inning that was capped by Dom Brown’s first homer in months. But the lasting image from Monday’s 9-6 loss to the Atlanta Braves at Citizens Bank Park will be…

  12. There’s been a Charlie Manuel sighting, things like that

    Apr 14, 2014, 2:22 PM EDT

    Charlie Manuel

    The Phillies have been back at the ball yard in South Philly for just about a week now but it doesn’t really feel like spring has truly sprung until we get our first Charlie Manuel sighting of the season. Cholly is visiting the Lakewood BlueClaws this week as part of his role as Senior Advisor…

  13. LeSean McCoy says he’d take his two-year-old son over Tim Tebow

    Apr 14, 2014, 1:24 PM EDT

    shady-belt

    The journalists over at TMZ tracked down Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy in a California airport in order to ask him the pressing questions of our day. Who embodies the spirit of Philadelphia more, Will Smith or Rocky Balboa? Really, that was the first question asked. Then they asked Shady about the most expensive…

  14. Can you match these children’s drawings to the actual Phillies player?

    Apr 14, 2014, 12:18 PM EDT

    Phillies.drawings

    Freebie: Wil Nieves While Ruben Amaro Jr. may not believe it, the children are our future. So we’ll give a pass to the youngsters who drew these pictures of the Phillies that were used on the jumbotron at the first Sunday game at Citizens Bank Park of the season. They are rather fascinating, however. The…

  15. Amazing: There’s a GIF of Jimmy Rollins telling off the fan

    Apr 14, 2014, 11:17 AM EDT

    jimmy.shutthefup

    Pretty good weekend for your Fightin’ Phils over at Citizens Bank Park as they helped alleviate the pain of an opening series sweep at the hands of the Brewers by going out and winning three straight of their own over the Miami Marlins. And while the Marlins may have been pushovers in the past, they’ve…

  16. Photo Gallery: the Eastern Regional Championship for the PA Golden Gloves at former ECW Arena

    Apr 14, 2014, 10:19 AM EDT

    2014 PA Golden Gloves Eastern Regionals (9 of 13)

    Friend of the Level and professional photographer Tug Haines was in South Philly on Saturday night to capture some great shots from the Eastern Regional Championships for the PA Golden Gloves, another step on the way to national tournament coming up in Las Vegas. The fights featured Stephen Fulton, Jr. who went all the way…

  17. J-Roll tells fan to ‘shut the F up’ by hitting walkoff homer in extras

    Apr 13, 2014, 8:32 AM EDT

    Jimmy Rollins

    Not sure exactly what the conversation between a heckling fan and Jimmy Rollins was on Saturday night at Citizens Bank Park but the words directed at J-Roll clearly paid dividends as the Phillies got a walkoff homer out of their shortstop in extras. Jimmy was asked about the heckling after the game and tried to…

  18. Quotable: Ryne Sandberg on how the Phillies can stop early slide

    Apr 11, 2014, 2:58 PM EDT

    Domonic Brown, Ben Revere, Marlon Byrd

    Cliff Lee was not the stopper on Thursday night but he did pitch well enough to give the Phillies a chance. In the end the bats couldn’t capitalize on a couple of opportunities and the bullpen, namely Jeff Manship, faltered once again. The Phillies now sit at 3-6 which puts them alone at the bottom…

  19. Watch: Crazy buzzer beater goal that won Gophers spot in championship with less than a second left

    Apr 11, 2014, 11:47 AM EDT

    gophers

    You may have already read about the Evster and my experience at the Frozen Four last night at the Wells Fargo Center earlier this morning. It was a great recap. If you like recaps that are 80% made up, 10% facts, and 10% making fun of me. For instance, the Evster called the second game…

  20. Mike Schmidt thinks MLB should use the force, not human umpires, to call balls and strikes

    Apr 10, 2014, 12:59 PM EDT

    schmidt

    Michael Jack Schmidt was a guest on 97.5 the Fanatic on Thursday to talk about his new gig calling Sunday Phillies games alongside Tom McCarthy and either Jamie Moyer or Matt Stairs on the television broadcast. He hints that the broadcast may be a little different with some story telling be a welcomed addition. He…

  21. GIF: Ben Revere diving faceplant! And a sweet catch

    Apr 10, 2014, 10:01 AM EDT

    Revere.dive.brewers

    Ben Revere’s defense seems to be all over the place. He doesn’t seem to get great reads on balls hit towards him and sometimes he has enough speed to recover and make the play and sometimes he doesn’t. I didn’t think he was getting to this Lyle Overbay ball in the ninth. Still, for a…

  22. Ryan Braun is the new Phillies killer and he may have mocked you last night, Philly fans

    Apr 10, 2014, 8:58 AM EDT

    Braun.maybemock

    Philadelphia fans are not in any way shape or form fans of Brewers’ slugger Ryan Braun. In fact, I might go so far as to say the fanbase really, really doesn’t like the former MVP who later served time for performance enhancing drug use. This was discussed after the home opener when Braun smashed three…

  23. Watch: The Phillie Phanatic’s dramatic reenactment of what it was like to watch last night’s game

    Apr 10, 2014, 7:48 AM EDT

    phanatic8

    If you’re unfamiliar, this is a newer addition to the Phanatic’s repertoire where he takes out a couple of harmless little kids dressed as some sort of hot dog in order to let a nice little girl win the race and be glorified forever. Looks pretty painful. Much like watching the Phillies last night. More…

  24. The people who REALLY Don’t like Mike Vick are the Jets’ problem now

    Apr 9, 2014, 5:29 PM EDT

    Andy Reid, Michael Vick, Tony DUngy

    I was pretty surprised when Mike Vick first signed with the Philadelphia Eagles for a variety of reasons. One of the biggest was that the Eagles had a pretty great quarterback in Donovan McNabb at the time. Certainly chief among the others was the potential headache Vick’s baggage could bring along with him seemed like…

  25. So Nerlens Noel wasn’t talking about Captain America being released on 4-4-14, says he increased vertical by 3 inches

    Apr 9, 2014, 2:34 PM EDT

    nerlens.captain.america

    Nerlens Noel can speak. We were reminded of this amazing fact yesterday when the great big hope of the Sixers spoke to the media yesterday for the first time in ages. While his coach Brett Brown wasn’t sure what the ambiguous 4-4-14 tweet was a couple of weeks back and some of us speculated on…
