  1. No D-Jax? No J-Roll? No Problem! @FakeWIPCaller weighs in

    JimmyRollins.DeSean.Jackson

    It’s been a week of turmoil for our local teams and a couple of their biggest stars, with DeSean Jackson supposedly about to be traded by the Eagles, and Jimmy Rollins reportedly on the outs with the Phillies, who are asking him to show “leadership.” If you ask me, good riddance to both. First of…

  2. You don’t want to hear what the scouts Jayson Stark talks to have to say about the Phillies

    Mar 21, 2014, 10:10 AM EDT

    sandberg

    On one hand it’s Friday and you can always handle bad news a little better on Friday. Plus you’ve got a full day of NCAA hoops to keep you occupied. On the other hand, none of this should come as much of a surprise to you. But Jayson Stark’s latest on your Philadelphia Phillies certainly…

    A tough, tough loss for Phil Martelli and St. Joe’s in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament as the Hawks fell 89-81 in overtime to the UConn Huskies after having the victory within reach during regulation. A botched final possession in the final seconds of the second half didn’t help, and Halil Kanacevic fouling out…

  4. Phillies season ticket numbers down by at least 5,000

    Mar 20, 2014, 6:12 PM EDT

    phillies.fans

    I know at least three different people personally who opted not to renew their partial season ticket plans for the Phillies this season. A couple 17-game plans here and a couple Sunday packages there and it all adds up to roughly 5,000 less season tickets sold than last year. That number is according to the…

  5. Did you know Connor Barwin also played hoops at Cincinnati?

    Mar 20, 2014, 3:21 PM EDT

    Connor.Barwin

    Football players suiting up and balling on the hardwood isn’t exactly a new thing. Philadelphia fans are well aware of Donovan McNabb playing for Jim Boeheim and the Syracuse Orangemen, but did you know that current Eagle’s linebacker Connor Barwin was a pretty decent baller for the Cincinnati Bearcats? With Cincy facing off against Harvard…

    Holy moly. pic.twitter.com/N0qQ8GJiFQ — Dennis Deitch (@DennisDeitch) March 20, 2014 Yes, that appears to be an Amaro shirsey in the wild, spotted down in Florida today at the Phillies game against the Astros by beat writer Dennis Deitch of the Delaware County Daily Times. The only possible explanation I can come up with is he’s…

  7. They’re calling Jayson Werth an ‘idiot’ down in Washington now

    Mar 20, 2014, 11:52 AM EDT

    Werth-a-rine

    Philadelphia fans know all to well that Jayson Werth is something of a character. He developed a reputation as a guy who didn’t always want to talk to the media and some painted him as a player who just had a bad “aura” to him. But he was a pretty darn good right fielder who…

  8. Finally, some good news: Hamels pleased with progress after bullpen

    Mar 19, 2014, 1:22 PM EDT

    hamels.clearwater

    Aside from Claude Giroux and the Flyers going on a nice little hot streak, it seems like it’s been all Jimmy Rollins not leading this and DeSean Jackson me me me me-ing that in the Philly sports talk world these days. So even the most minor bit of positive news out of Clearwater gets us…

  9. UPenn has a baseball team and they made this awesome trailer

    Philly.skyline.penn

    I’m a sucker for a cool YouTube video. I mean, part of my job is to watch videos all day long. So whether you’re promoting your brand of baseball gloves or your school’s baseball team, if the video is well done or even a little interesting, I’ll watch. And so here is a pretty badass…

  10. Watch Carlos Ruiz talk about his catcher’s mitt, his ‘baby’

    Mar 19, 2014, 11:21 AM EDT

    Chooch.glove

    Here’s a pretty cool video of some of the folks over at Wilson heading to Clearwater to hook up some of the Phillies with custom gloves. Jonathan Papelbon, Marlon Byrd, Carlos Ruiz and others talk about what they like in a glove and we learn a little bit about some of their superstitions. Apparently some…

  11. New Muppets movie uses Penguin mocking, Rowlf’s Flyers fandom as promotional tool

    rawfl

    If it was just Rowlf the Dog telling us he was a Flyers fan, we might have passed on pointing out this promo for the new Muppets movie. But whatever marketing people put this together realized there are penguins on staff over in Muppet Land, and used them in a delightful double entendre. So good…

  12. Quotable: Vegas likes what Eagles did in free agency, improved Super Bowl odds

    Mar 18, 2014, 1:51 PM EDT

    Super.Bowl.MVP

    The Eagles didn’t put together a Dream Team 2.0 over the past few weeks — that’s probably a good thing — but they did piece together some quality players on reasonable deals that can help them become a more complete team. Obviously, there are still needs to be addressed, potentially through the NFL draft, but…

  13. Mini Martelli more loyal to grandfather’s Hawks than dad’s Hens

    Phillip.Martelli

    You’re only a four-year-old kid once. Eventually you’re going to grow up, go to middle school, then high school, probably college, find a career of your own, and then one day all of that hair on your head will just disappear. So little Phillip Martelli, grandson of St. Joe’s head coach Phil and son of…

    The March 17th game down in Clearwater, Florida is typically a rather festive affair with fans from the Delaware Valley flocking to BrightHouse Field to wear their best wrong-colored Phillies shirts and celebrate the fact that someone in their family tree once lived across the ocean in Ireland. I was down there one year and…

  15. New FiveThirtyEight website puts pretty decent probability behind big Nova tournament run

    Mar 17, 2014, 1:58 PM EDT

    jay.wright

    Nate Silver’s much hyped FiveThirtyEight.com debuted today following in the Grantland footsteps over at ESPN and they came right out of the gate crunching some interesting numbers in an attempt to predict the NCAA basketball tournament set to tip off this week. The methodology used is all pretty interesting stuff, combining a number of existing…

  16. Sam Hinkie even drove Evan Turner to airport after trade

    Not much new on the Sixers front this weekend. Not only did they lose a pair of games at the Wells Fargo Center but now even their sneakers are falling apart. Their losing streak now sits at 20 games which ties the franchise record. Nothing funny about that. One funny anecdote from over the weekend…

  17. Six great local beers for your Philadelphia Union season opener tailgate

    cultivator

    For many Philly sports fans, few things compare to taking an afternoon off from work and heading down South Broad for the Phillies’ home opener. No one needs any reminders that winter can be brutal here, and one weekday afternoon, even when it happens to be chilly and rainy, is still the mile marker where…

  18. Sir Charles nearly falls asleep on TV and he wasn’t even watching the Sixers

    Mar 14, 2014, 10:14 AM EDT

    charles.barkley.sleep

    (Or playing on the Sixers) More proof that Charles Barkley is just like the rest of us. There was a pretty funny segment on TNT’s Inside the NBA on Thursday night when the cameras caught Chuck’s eyelids getting real heavy. He kept it together and didn’t actually fall asleep, but that certainly didn’t stop Kenny,…

  19. Video: Eagles new special teamer seems crazy enough to be awesome special teamer

    Bryan Braman, Pat McAfee

    The Eagles introduced a couple of their new acquisitions today over at the NovaCare Complex in South Philadelphia. Among them was linebacker Bryan Braman who also happens to be dubbed one of those special teams… “specialists.” He was asked about the mentality needed in a special teams role. His answer was so matter of fact…

  20. Watch Jimmy Rollins talk for nine minutes about Sandberg benching and apparent relationship strain

    Mar 13, 2014, 1:58 PM EDT

    Jimmy.Rollins

    “I don’t know, there’s no fire that needs to be lit though.” That’s how Jimmy Rollins responded when asked if the strange past few days is a way of Ryne Sandberg trying to light a fire under his shortstop. Jimmy has been benched the past few days and there’s no real clear reason as to…

  21. The Sixers lost obviously but DAMN if Tony Wroten didn’t break some ankles [VIDEO]

    tony.wroten

    The Sixers put another notch in the loss column on Wednesday night when they fell 115-98 to the Kings. That makes it, let me check… one, two, three, four… eighteen straight losses for your 76ers. They can tie the franchise longest losing streak of 20 on Saturday night against Memphis if they fall on Friday…

    And that would put the count of shirtless photos on his Instagram at four out of the last eight. According to this photo, he’s up in Montana ice fishing with the boys. “The boys” being Riley Cooper and Colt Anderson. Looks like they got dinner too. This one from nine months ago looks a bit…

    1999 Victory #301 Ogea

    I’m bald. I started losing my hair while I was in high school, and by the time I was a junior in college, I came up with the ‘brilliant’ idea to never get my haircut again. If I never got another haircut, I thought. I will always have hair. Which is fine in theory, but…

  24. Cole Hamels essentially started his spring training today but feels ‘really good’

    Mar 12, 2014, 11:25 AM EDT

    Phillies Spring 2014 - Cole Hamels

    The good news about Cole Hamels’ bullpen session today is that he said he felt “really good” after he was finished this morning as opposed to the last time out when he said 30 or so pitches felt like a thousand. So Hamels is back to work but he still remains noncommittal about pitching for…

  25. Nerlens Noel played 4-on-4 today and can jump way quicker than you

    We’ve heard about Nerlens Noel working on his shot with Brett Brown at practice and we’ve read the mysterious 4-4-14 tweet, but today we got some actual reporting on the Sixers rookie participating in a four-on-four practice. All signs point to impressive. Dei Lynam has the full story which includes a report on Noel’s game…
