We’re currently in a rain delay that has just passed the hour mark down here in Washington and no end appears in sight. So, here’s a photo from this evening’s game before things got torrential. Two things about this photo: 1.) What a nice young kid we have here. He even has enough manners to…

Charlie Manuel shares a gem about his approach to hitting. He doesn’t just aim for the fences, he aims for the scoreboard.

With his hippity-hop-boxing antics in the Shane Victorino altercation, Giants catcher Eli Whiteside cemented his place on the long list of opposing players that the Phillies fanbase can’t stand. So it’s with minimal cringe that we bring you this video from the other night of Whiteside taking one of the more nasty faceplant dives into second base we’ve seen in a while.

They touched on topics we’re all familiar with, the batting with a donut, the cleats, the goofy slide, etc. But it was Pence’s telling about how he had to choose between living with Cliff Lee or his own parents that we found most interesting.

The time of leaks, rumors, and speculation regarding the future of Sports Radio 610 WIP is for the most part, over, with the official announcement coming down this morning that the station will indeed take over the broadcast signal of sister CBS Radio station 94.1 WYSP, a long-time rock staple of the Philly landscape.

Phillies win 9-2 behind strong performances from Cliff Lee, John Mayberry and Wilson Valdez
Aug 17, 2011, 4:43 PM EDT
The Philadelphia Phillies are back at it and looking to rebound with a victory after last night’s disappointing loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks. In year’s past, we might have worried that a late-game loss could have done damage to the team’s psyche, putting added pressure on them to win the following night. But then we signed Cliff Lee to follow Roy Halladay, lost sight of our embarrassment of riches and stopped worrying about these things.

It’s a question I never once thought about, but after Harry Kalas’ shiny new statue was unveiled yesterday as Citizens Bank Park, the Internet folk have gone to war over it. Which direction should your 2008 World Series Championship ring be worn? With the ‘P’ facing down when your hands are relaxed and standing? Or…

As expected, the Phillies placed Placido Polanco on the DL this afternoon with a sports hernia which wasn’t the best news for Phillies fans to hear, but the move made in conjunction with it made one young guy’s dream come true.

Roy Halladay took the lead into the ninth inning, but couldn’t hold on for his 16th win. Lyle Overbay drove in three runs–two in the final frame–to push the Arizona Diamondbacks past the Phillies by a score of 3-2.

Before Tuesday night’s game between the Phillies and the Arizona Diamondbacks, the team unveiled a fan-donated statue of legendary broadcaster Harry Kalas. Merion native Larry Nowlan sculpted the 7.5-foot bronze figure. Harry will now stand in the concourse on the third base side of Harry the K’s forever. His right hand is adorned with the 2008 World Series Championship ring, grips a microphone, and leans on a bat.
Bruce Adams of the Daily Local News has more on the statue and the sculptor, and John Gonzalez covered the unveiling for CSNPhilly. Below, some screencaps of the statue, which was unveiled by Jimmy Rollins and Steve Carlton, as well as a video shot by a fan at the game.

There was a glimmer of hope that Jim Thome might sneak back into Phillies pinstripes as the trade deadline approached, but he remained a Minnesota Twin. Even though he wasn’t a Phillie when it happened, I think we can all join him in celebrating hitting career milestone home run #600, which came on the same night he hit his 599th and collected three total hits in helping the Twins top the Detroit Tigers, 9-6. After the game, Thome thanked Charlie Manuel.

With the Phillies off today, there’s still plenty to talk about. Did Roy Halladay go to the zoo?
