  1. It’s A Big Three Weekend: Halladay Up First

    Jun 10, 2011, 1:14 PM EDT

    Sure, the pitching isn’t going to solve any of the offensive woes, but it’s still awfully nice to know our rotation this weekend will consist of Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee, and Roy Oswalt. Tonight’s match up faces Carlos Zambrano (5-2, 3.98) and his “We Stinks” attitude against Roy Halladay (8-3, 2.56) who looks to become…

  2. PSA: Shore, Phillies, and Phish Traffic Later Today…

    Jun 10, 2011, 9:40 AM EDT

    Cars, trucks, and buses on the highway to the great divide.

  3. Phillies Fan Interferes with Potential Home Run In Ninth Against Cubs

    Jun 10, 2011, 2:46 AM EDT

    Dear Phillies Fans, Please don’t interfere with a ball in play. Ever.

  4. Down the Drain: OffenseDefense Costs Phillies Again

    Jun 10, 2011, 1:50 AM EDT

    Phillies lose to Chicago Cubs in 11 innings after one hour rain delay as Ryan Madson blows first save in 2011.

  5. Utley and Rollins Back in the Lineup With Kyle Kendrick On the Hill

    Jun 9, 2011, 4:34 PM EDT

    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.

  6. This Guy Kept A Vet Stadium Hot Dog

    Jun 9, 2011, 3:03 PM EDT

    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.

  8. Video: Charlie Manuel Has Seen Cole Hamels with His Shirt Off

    Jun 9, 2011, 12:34 AM EDT

    “He’s bigger than he used to be. If you see him with his shirt and stuff off, he’s developing into a man.” /chuckles [video here]

  9. Cole Hamels Aced, Ryan Howard Hit One Ball Far, Phillies Won 2-0

    Jun 8, 2011, 9:50 PM EDT

    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.

  10. Hamels vs. Kuroda As Reserves Get Chance to Prove Their Worth

    Jun 8, 2011, 6:24 PM EDT

    The Phillies will be without Jimmy Rollins and Chase Utley in tonight’s starting lineup. How will Wilson Valdez and Michael Martinez step up?

  11. Shane Victorino Always Brings Hula Girls with Him to the Mall

    Jun 8, 2011, 4:24 PM EDT

    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…

  12. No Utley Or Rollins Tonight Vs. L.A.

    Jun 8, 2011, 3:32 PM EDT

    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…

  13. Video: Young Phillies Fan Makes Sweet Catch

    Jun 8, 2011, 1:26 AM EDT

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

  14. Frustrations Mount with Shoddy Defense and No Timely Hitting

    Jun 7, 2011, 11:17 PM EDT

    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.

  15. The Dude Potentially Facing 12 Years in Prison

    Jun 7, 2011, 8:01 PM EDT

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

  16. Lil Roy vs. Dodgers, Plus Charlie’s Watching Tom Gordon’s Kid

    Jun 7, 2011, 5:08 PM EDT

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

  17. Reminder: Cliff Lee Can DEAL Plus: Phils Draft OF Greene

    Jun 6, 2011, 11:08 PM EDT

    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.

  18. Phils Return Home to Take On Dodgers as Lee Faces Lilly

    Jun 6, 2011, 5:05 PM EDT

    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…

  19. PNC Yinz Later – Phils Avoid Sweep

    Jun 5, 2011, 11:40 PM EDT

    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…

  20. Please Do Not Get Swept by the Pirates.

    Jun 5, 2011, 12:45 PM EDT

    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.

  21. Pirates. Again.

    Jun 4, 2011, 11:37 PM EDT

    Anyone know when the Pirates are going to trade that Andrew McCutchen guy? [full recap]

  22. Phils Turn to Kendrick to Beat the Buccos

    Jun 4, 2011, 4:04 PM EDT

    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…

  23. That Was Quick: Mayberry Back For At Least A Few Days

    Jun 4, 2011, 2:34 PM EDT

    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…

  24. Ugh: Phils Waste A Hamels Gem in Extras With Little Offense

    Jun 4, 2011, 12:13 AM EDT

    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…

  25. Is This The Lineup You’ve Been Waiting All Season For?

    Jun 3, 2011, 3:15 PM EDT

    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?
