Not your average recap. This Giants fan raps his thoughts on last night’s Phillies loss.
Jul 27, 2011, 10:53 PM EDT
In Game 3 of the 2010 NLCS, Matt Cain outdueled Cole Hamels for a 3-0 win on a night where there was scant offense from the Phillies and not a tremendous amount more from the Giants. Wednesday’s 2-1 Phils loss may have looked familiar, with Cain and the Giants topping Hamels and the home side, 2-1, and the teams combining for 10 hits.

Via Jimmy Traina at Hot Clicks, we’re treated to this video of something we’ve yet to grow tired of—people pointing out how odd looking the San Francisco Giants are:

The buzz before the Phillies game this evening at Citizens Bank Park is the looming trade that will land the San Francisco Giants switch-hitting Carlos Beltran, one of the prized bats of the 2011 deadline season.
Jul 27, 2011, 2:11 PM EDT
In my opinion, either Hunter Pence or Carlos Beltran would be a great addition to the Phillies roster as they push for a World Series championship. Charlie Manuel has said over and over he’d want somebody who is a clear upgrade. Beltran rumors today point toward him landing with the Giants, which leaves Pence as…

The worse baseball call you’ll see all year. And it helped the Braves!
Jul 26, 2011, 9:17 PM EDT
Chase Utley hit an amazing inside the park home run on Tuesday night in Philadelphia.
Jul 26, 2011, 7:58 PM EDT
The “Casa Del Howard” will surely be an enjoyable spot to head home to after a tough day of spring ball. Local newspaper the Bellaire Bee says the home will be a “$23 million, 17,500-square-foot home on a gulf-front lot covering over an acre.”
Jul 26, 2011, 4:49 PM EDT
Charlie Manuel got his bravado going this afternoon when talking about beating the Giants. But he also noted there’s lots of baseball to be played before the postseason.
Jul 26, 2011, 2:44 PM EDT
The San Francisco Giants had the honor of being welcomed into the home of the Commander In Chief of the United States of America on Monday. This evening, they’ll get the pleasure of visiting the home of a first-place baseball team with 45,000 rabid fans that aren’t exactly the most cordial bunch.
Jul 25, 2011, 7:11 PM EDT
After pitching well against the Phillies on Monday afternoon, rumblings about Padres setup man Mike Adams gain some momentum.
Jul 25, 2011, 3:56 PM EDT
Brad Lidge probably wasn’t exactly what Manuel had in mind when voicing his desires, but the former Lights Out closer could help in a big way down the stretch. And he showed a nice glimpse of how good he can be in his first appearance of the season for the Phillies on Monday afternoon against the Padres.

Before things went south for Cliff, the legendary Twitter account of Jayson Werth’s Beard pointed out just how scraggly Lee’s facial hair has gotten.

Jul 24, 2011, 4:24 PM EDT
Roy Halladay bounced back on Sunday to beat the Padres for his 12th victory of the season.
Jul 24, 2011, 1:29 PM EDT
Roy Halladay returns to the mound to start a game for the first time since leaving “due to heat” in Chicago last week.
Jul 23, 2011, 7:30 PM EDT
The temperature was hot once again, but the Phils’ bats were hotter. (Well… maybe not.) Chase Utley and Michael Martinez each scorched three-run blasts, while Utley and Ryan Howard added solo shots to account for all eight of the Fightins’ runs in a Saturday afternoon 8-6 victory over the Padres at Citizens Bank Park.
Jul 23, 2011, 2:23 PM EDT
As someone currently hydrating for a long hot summer night at the Linc, I feel for the folks headed down to Citizens Bank Park for game two of the Phillies-Padres series. It’s gonna be a hot’n, with a game time temperature of about 100º and a heat index of like a million.
Those braving the elements will see Kyle Kendrick facing righty Mat Latos and looking for his second straight win as a starter. He beat the Mets last week with a nice one-run performance over seven innings.
Jul 23, 2011, 12:21 PM EDT
I didn’t know the greatness of the Phillies team that won the franchise’s first-ever World Series the week of my first birthday. Before 2008, the closest I saw the Fightins come to being the best in the bigs was in 1993, and that success left the team about as soon as Joe Carter’s home run left the park.
That 1993 Blue Jays team was put together by Pat Gillick, and as painful as it can still be for those of us who witnessed it, the antidote is a few lines further down. By which I course mean, Gillick was also the man perhaps most responsible for the greatest ride of our baseball lives, the 2008 Phillies Championship season.

The Phillies kick off a 10-game homestead this evening against the San Diego Padres and do so in 80′s style. Both teams will wear sweet 1984 throwback uniforms this evening as part of 80′s Retro Night.

Brad Lidge rejoins the Phillies this afternoon while Denys Baez is DFA’d.
Jul 22, 2011, 11:19 AM EDT
Ah, yes. The always enjoyable 80′s retro night returns to Citizens Bank Park this evening for the Phillies-Padres game.
Jul 22, 2011, 11:02 AM EDT
The Phillies are linked to just about every available right-handed bat and relief arm on the market right about now, marking yet another player movement period in which they, like the Eagles and Flyers, are the playground of agents and sportswriters alike.
