    Jul 16, 2011, 2:00 PM EDT

    With last night’s 7-2 final in Flushing Meadows, the Phillies have put themselves in position to claim their seventh straight series victory with a win Saturday. And, considering the pitching match up, the odds don’t look half bad, as Cole Hamels squares off against Jon Niese.

  3. Phillies Start Second Half With 7-2 Win Behind Fine Play From Ibanez, Mayberry

    Jul 15, 2011, 10:17 PM EDT

    It’s been days since we’ve gotten to experience one of those. Unlike last season, when the Phillies stumbled into the second half after the All-Star break, the Phillies wasted no time getting back to where they left off last week. They rode the fine play of Raul Ibanez, John Mayberry, and the solid pitching of Worley and the pen to beat the Mets 7-2. As they should.

    MLB trade deadline approaching and the Phillies have a need for a right handed bat and some help out of the bullpen. Can Ruben Amaro Jr. fill the holes in the roster?

    Jul 14, 2011, 8:40 AM EDT

    Enrico picked up the early leg of our comprehensive ESPYS coverage last night, noting that the Eagles’ Miracle at the New Meadowlands won the award for best game. (You may recall your humble narrator was at that shizz.) Turns out the Birds weren’t the only local winners, with Roy Halladay’s name finding its way onto a pair of awards. Doc’s no-hitter over the Reds in the playoffs won “Best Moment,” while the man himself won Best MLB Player.

  12. Holy @!: Phils catcher Lance Parrish Made the ’88 All-Star Game

    Jul 12, 2011, 2:01 PM EDT

    Save for 1999 when Paul Byrd, Mike Lieberthal, and Curt Schilling were All-Stars, the Phillies sent a lone player to the All-Star game every year from 1996-2001. In looking over the list of Phillies All-Stars, one name caught my eye in a “you’ve-got-to-be-kidding-me-this-guy-made-an-all-star-team” sort of way. That name?

    Theres a lot wrong with this photo… for starters, where is Jimmy’s computer? Are we expected to believe He’s really going to be productive with nothing but a phone and some looseleaf paper? I don’t even see a pencil. Second… a tip for Young James: take the corner office, bro

    Bruce Bochy tells it like it is, “When you talk about the best, this guy is always at the top. It’s been like this the last few years. So I’m really looking forward to seeing him start the game, and I’m excited that I could name him the starter.”

    Jul 10, 2011, 7:52 PM EDT

    Those in attendance at today’s Phillies game were truly enjoying this victory long before the final pitch was actually thrown. In fact, they took the opportunity late in the game — likely egged on by the Phillie Phanatic who was behind the Phis duggout — to use the Atlanta Braves’ rallying cry, the Tomahawk Chop, against them.
