The Phillies take on the Cubs this evening with Kyle Kendrick on the mound. Jimmy Rollins returns to the lineup after resting his bruised knee and Chase Utley is back after an off day on Wednesday.

Not surprisingly, the man bought eight hot dogs at the Phillies game on June 6, 2003 at Veterans Stadium, but decided to take the final wiener home to eat as a snack later. He never devoured it and instead has kept the hot dog in his freezer despite moving multiple times.

Without their two stud middle-infielders, the Phillies got some help from their role players, but mostly it was Ryan Howard and Cole Hamels who fueled their 2-0 win over the Dodgers on Wednesday.
Jun 8, 2011, 6:24 PM EST
The Phillies will be without Jimmy Rollins and Chase Utley in tonight’s starting lineup. How will Wilson Valdez and Michael Martinez step up?
Jun 8, 2011, 4:24 PM EST
Of course Shane Victorino brings a gaggle of hula girls with him to the mall. My only question: when did Modell’s start selling Affliction gear? [video below] Whatever happened to “no shirt, no shoes, no service?” Also, the Modell’s in the King of Prussia Mall has apparently moved locations in case you were in search…

The Phillies will be without their All-Star middle infield tandem this evening as Chase Utley gets an off-day after making five straight starts and Jimmy Rollins sits with his bruised knee. To mix things up a bit and add some speed in the two-hole, Charlie will bat Dom Brown second behind Shane Victorino. Full lineup…

A young girl at the Phillies game makes a sweet over the railing grab on Tuesday night against the Dodgers.

The Phillies play an all around ugly game against the Dodgers and Charlie Manuel says as much afterwards. Roy Oswalt wasn’t great, but the defense was just as bad if not worse and the timely hitting was not existent.

Lenny Dykstra facing 12 years in prison for grand theft auto and drug possession charges.

Roy Oswalt takes on Dodgers rookie Rubby De La Rosa at Citizens Bank Park. Jimmy could see DL, Chase could see off day tomorrow.

After giving up a total of 10 earned runs over his previous two starts, Cliff Lee took the mound against the Dodgers on Monday night looking for a stellar performance. The offense behind him needed that as well, looking limp overall lately and not much better in the series opener with the Dodgers. Fortunately, Lee came to the park ready to handle LA’s lineup, and the Phils’ offense put up just enough support for a 3-1 win.
Jun 6, 2011, 5:05 PM EST
The Phillies must be happy to return home after finishing their road trip with a sub-par 4-5 record. Despite a losing road trip, they return to Citizens Bank Park atop the NL East. They’ll kick off their home stand this evening against the Los Angeles Dodgers as Cliff Lee (4-5, 3.94) takes on Ted Lilly…

Success! The Phils actually won a game at PNC Park. Doc Halladay went seven innings, singled, scored from second on a Placido Polanco single, and did us all a favor and told Angel Hernandez what he thought of his strike zone. The offense banged out 14 his – 13 of which were singles. Dom Brown…

The Phils and Bucs get underway at 1:35 today, with Roy Halladay facing righty James McDonald. For the Pirates, a rare moment at .500 in June is on the line. For the Phillies, a possible sweep at the hands of a team for which being .500 in June is a big deal. Dunno what it is, but the Phils just don’t play well at all in Pittsburgh, which has to particularly suck for the many fans who traverse the state to see a very nice park and presumably a few Phillies road wins.
Jun 4, 2011, 11:37 PM EST
Anyone know when the Pirates are going to trade that Andrew McCutchen guy? [full recap]
Jun 4, 2011, 4:04 PM EST
The nice thing about the Phillies highly regarded rotation is that after every loss, they have another stud pitcher to turn to to stop the bleeding. Tonight, it’s Kyle Kendrick’s turn to beat the Pirates. KK will be making his third start of the season with his last being an emergency start against the Rockies…
Jun 4, 2011, 2:34 PM EST
John Mayberry Jr. likely didn’t even have time to unpack and settle in up in the Lehigh Valley, that’s because today the Phillies placed Ross Gload on the paternity leave list, which allows a player 24-72 hours to be with their newborn. To fill his spot, John Mayberry will rejoin the club in Pittsburgh this…
Jun 4, 2011, 12:13 AM EST
See, the problem is, Charlie Manuel brought Danys Baez into the game in the 12th inning instead of waiting until the 13th inning. As we all know, Danys Baez throws like frickin’ Cy Young when appearing in the 13th inning of games or later. Alas, the Phillies lost to the frickin’ Pirates 2-1 in extra…
Jun 3, 2011, 3:15 PM EST
Now that your anger over John Mayberry Jr. getting optioned has subsided, lets take a moment to enjoy tonight’s lineup against the Pittsburgh Pirates… 1. Jimmy Rollins2. Placido Polanco*3. Chase Utley*4. Ryan Howard5. Shane Victorino6. Raul Ibanez7. Dom Brown8. Carlos Ruiz9. Cole Hamels*had these reversed earlier. Even our pitcher can hit. Who needs a bench?
Jun 3, 2011, 12:04 PM EST
The Phillies announced this afternoon that they have optioned John Mayberry Jr. to the Lehigh Valley IronPigs to make room for Shane Victorino to return to the 25-man roster. It’s a move many Phillies fans will surely be angry with due to Mayberry playing quite well in limited time as opposed to other potential candidates…

A quick look at the Phils and Bucs coming into the weekend’s series, plus pitching matchups.

The below commercial seems to be a new promo spot for watching Phillies baseball that has yet to be completed. It features both Phillies players and fans frozen during seemingly key moments in big games. It’s great in theory, needs more in execution, but leads me to wonder… what’s that one guy pointing at? Your…

Shane Victorino was not in the lineup this morning for the Reading Phillies and all signs point to him returning to the Phils for the weekend set in Pittsburgh. With their starting center fielder back in the fold, what roster move would you make to fit the Hawaiian back on the roster? You’d think the…
