Here’s a fan-shot video of the fans in right field at Citizens Bank Park reacting to the introduction of Hunter Pence, followed by his first trot out to his new home. In the immortal words of John McClane, welcome to the party, pal. Thanks to Mark S. for shooting this and sending it in.

When Charlie Manuel handed over Saturday night’s lineup card—the first with ‘Pence’ scrawled below ‘Howard’—it included a whopping eight players who have been All-Stars at least once in their career. In fact, all but two have been All-Stars more than once. Here’s a look at the ASG resumes of last night’s Phillies starters, plus today’s lineup and pitching matchup.

While we assume the Phillies’ most notable trade deadline strike has already come, as it has in previous years, on Ruben Amaro Jr Day, July 29th, the official trade deadline is today, and there could still be a new pinstriper or two by the time the clock ticks 4 PM.
Jul 30, 2011, 10:09 PM EDT
Quite the debut for Hunter Pence as the Phillies defeat the Pirates on an exciting night in South Philadelphia.
Jul 30, 2011, 6:27 PM EDT
Hunter Pence arrived in Philadelphia this afternoon. He couldn’t seem more excited to have the chance to win a championship in our town.
Jul 30, 2011, 3:12 PM EDT
In order to make room for newest Phillie Hunter Pence, Dom Brown has been optioned to Lehigh Valley.
Jul 29, 2011, 11:51 PM EDT
Not only did the Phillies get a coveted right-handed bat, they also guy a classy player who also happens to be quite active on Twitter — a first for a Phillies star.
Jul 29, 2011, 11:38 PM EDT
Ruben Amaro Jr. talks about why he targeted Hunter Pence and Charlie Manuel adds why he likes the newest Phillie.
Jul 29, 2011, 9:02 PM EDT
Once again, Ruben Amaro Jr. is showing that when he wants something, he goes out and gets it. FOX Sports Ken Rosenthal is reporting that the Houston Astros are close to a trade of outfielder Hunter Pence to the Phillies for highly regarded prospects 1B Jonathan Singleton, right-handed starter Jarred Cosart, and two players to be named later which are “not major prospects.”
Jul 29, 2011, 6:03 PM EDT
It’s past 6:15 EST on the East Coast and the Phillies have yet to make a trade for a right-handed bat. We’ll keep you updated through out the night with any rumblings we hear, but until something goes down, we’ve got a heck of a pitching matchup to watch tonight in South Philadelphia.
Jul 28, 2011, 10:27 PM EDT
This shot from tonight’s game comes to us courtesy of the Level’s own Rev, who had to sit through that lack of offense from the Phillies bats in South Philadelphia tonight. Ben Franklin was not pleased either. Game Recap: Lincecum and Giants Beat Phillies 4-1 “We hold these truths to be self evident, the Phillies…

The Philadelphia Phillies, the team that still owns the best record in baseball, lost back-to-back games for the first time in since the first days of June and the dropped series to the Giants was the team’s first losing series in their last ten. Tim Lincecum stifled the Fightins’ bats and made Philly fans sick in the process.
Jul 28, 2011, 4:47 PM EDT
With the deadline winding down, we thought we’d take a look at the rumblings out there this afternoon prior to Kyle Kendrick and the Phillies take on Tim Lincecum and the Giants. San Fran will have Carlos Beltran in the lineup this evening, so that’s some added excited to watch for as well.
Jul 28, 2011, 12:08 PM EDT
Chase Utley sat down with the MLB Fan Cave people and shared that he loves pizza and Kings of Leon. Also, Harry the K calls Chase’s first home run.

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:
Jul 27, 2011, 5:02 PM EDT
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…
Jul 27, 2011, 2:15 AM EDT
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.
