  1. Lee vs. Willis: Sure, You Can Hit, But Can You Pitch?

    Aug 31, 2011, 4:54 PM EDT

    Cliff Lee has been a dominant pitcher for the Phillies this season. He’s also been used as a pinch runner and has swung a pretty damn good bat. These are seemingly all reasons why he’s been so beloved by fans in Philadelphia. As Matt Gelb of the Inqurer points out, Cliff may have met his…

  2. Phils Bring the Juice, Halladay Shuts Down the Reds in 9-0 Romp

    Aug 30, 2011, 10:14 PM EDT

    Halladay shines and Howard bashes as the Phillies cruised to a 9-0 victory on Tuesday night.

  3. Raul Returns as Halladay Takes On Reds

    Aug 30, 2011, 4:18 PM EDT

    Ibanez is back tonight and will face Reds’ starter Bronson Arroyo who Raul has hit .429 against in (only) seven career at-bats. As we mentioned earlier, Arroyo has struggled mightily against the Phils over his last four starts. Toss in new Phillie Hunter Pence who has seen Arroyo a ton (11-32) and it looks like a good matchup for the Phils.

  5. Hamels Looks Sharp In First Game Back As Phils Win 3-2 in Cincy

    Aug 30, 2011, 12:20 AM EDT

    The extended time off appeared to affect the Phillies bats a bit more than it did Cole Hamels left arm. At least until the eighth inning when Shane Victorino unloaded one of his sweet swings that sent a no-doubter into the seats in right to put the Phillies up 3-1. Stutes would falter a bit in the bottom half of the inning, but the Fightins held on for 3-2 win.

    Aug 29, 2011, 5:15 PM EDT

    Not only will the Phillies be getting back to action for the first time since their loss to the Marlins on Friday night, Cole Hamels (13-7, 2.62) will be starting for the first time in 17 days. Will Hamels return to form after an extended rest or will the fatigue he mentioned after that poor showing against the Nationals on Auguest 12th linger?

  13. Kevin Kernan Reminder! Ain’t a Thing Over Yet

    Aug 27, 2011, 10:50 AM EDT

    The Phils lost last night, and while that’s not the end of the world (Hurricane Irene is!), today’s a good day to look back on August 26, 2007, when a fella by the name of Kevin Kernan declared the NL East race over. (Yes, I meant to post it yesterday as an anniversary of sorts, but didn’t get to it.) The New York Post writer took one look at a mere 6.5-game New York Mets lead over the Phillies and was all PSSSSH, they got this.

  14. Vin Scully Is Coming Back

    Aug 27, 2011, 1:15 AM EDT

    Aug 26, 2011, 12:46 PM EDT

    The hurricane that is swirling out over the Atlantic Ocean could really put a damper on sporting events this weekend up and down the entire East Coast.

    Aug 24, 2011, 11:41 AM EDT
