  1. Jimmy Says It’s a Good Time to Get ‘HOT’

    May 2, 2011, 12:31 PM EDT

    The Phillies bats woke up a bit on Wednesday afternoon and lifted 3 balls into the stands, including one off the bat of Jimmy Rollins that was his first of the season. Following the game, J-Roll spoke with Sarge about Cole Hamels victory and how it’s a good time for the Phillies bats to get…

  2. Quotable: What’s Up With Oswalt?

    Apr 28, 2011, 2:25 PM EDT

    When we first hopped in the car in the Wells Fargo Center parking lot after leaving the Flyers game on cloud nine, we turned on the radio and the Phils had already given up 5 runs. Ugh. As we learned, Roy Oswalt was not sharp, didn’t have good velocity, and gave up 5 earned in…

  3. Oswalt In the Desert, Phils Search for Offense

    Apr 26, 2011, 6:03 PM EDT

    In the other game involving a Philly sports team this evening, Roy Oswalt (3-0, 1.88) and the Phillies will take on Daniel Hudson (0-4, 5.92) and the Diamondbacks out in Arizona. We’d write more on the matchup, likely on the Phils complete lack of offense as of late, but we’re going to go drink beer…

  4. Of Course Charlie Sheen Helped Bail Dykstra Out of Jail

    Apr 26, 2011, 5:55 PM EDT

    So Nails spent some time in jail recently and old Charlie Sheen helped him pay that bail tab, naturally. Charlie tells TMZ, “The rendition guilty trolls that kidnapped my dear friend Nails clearly forgot that he’s a fellow Vatican assassin and his best pal is a warlock.”

  5. The Phillies Tossed A Lot Of Equipment Last Night in Arizona

    Apr 26, 2011, 12:26 PM EDT

    Cliff Lee had one of those strange nights where he was pretty sharp but not real good. Or something. Lee notched 12 strikeouts in 7 innings but also allowed 4 runs. With the Phillies managing only three hits on the night against Ian Kennedy, their five-game wining streak came to an end. But hey, Mike…

  6. Cliff Lee, Like Charlie Manuel, Will Try To Do His Job Tonight in Arizona

    Apr 26, 2011, 12:21 PM EDT

    The Phillies look to continue their winning streak out west this evening when Cliff Lee (2-1, 3.91) takes the hill in Arizona to face Ian Kennedy (2-1, 5.64) and the Diamondbacks in the first of a three game set before the Phils return home later this week. The newsy item out of Arizona tonight is…

  7. Oh Yeah, Roy Dealt Yesterday Too, and Shane Put a New Face on ‘Jack in the Box’

    Apr 25, 2011, 7:11 PM EDT

    With the Philly sports calendar so packed yesterday on top of Easter Sunday family schedules for some, it was hard to catch each of the three games that ended so well for the local teams. If you were glued to the Flyers’ possible elimination game, it stings to have not seen every pitch of yet…

  8. Don’t Forget Doc: Halladay Goes for San Diego Sweep

    Apr 25, 2011, 6:28 PM EDT

    When Roy Halladay pitches, he’s typically the biggest game in town. That’s not exactly the case today as the Flyers and Sixers face huge potential elimination games. Remember that fateful day when Roy went up against a Flyers playoff game last season? Mike DiMuro, that same home plate ump from the perfect game in Florida,…

  9. A Huge Easter Sunday for Philly Sports

    Apr 25, 2011, 6:15 PM EDT

    The Flyers and Sixers are both in win-or-go-home games today, and the Phils have an opportunity to sweep the Padres in San Diego. We know Roy Halladay will be on the hill for the Phils, but there’s been no indication as to who will be in net for the Flyers just yet. If only the…

  10. Ryan Howard Makes ‘Em Pay

    Apr 25, 2011, 5:58 PM EDT

    Phillies fans across the country — from living rooms in South Philly to the sea of red in the stands at Petco Park — all had the same exact thought last night as Padres manager Bud Black opted to intentionally walk Jimmy Rollins in the 11th inning to get to Ryan Howard (who was sporting…

  11. Can Joey No Decision Stay on Track in SD? Phillies Extras and Gamethread

    Apr 25, 2011, 5:35 PM EDT

    Although the Phillies’ offense has been a little quiet lately, averaging less than three runs per game in their last nine outings, they seem to be finding their groove again after a series loss to the Brewers. The pitching has been great, including a pair of shutouts to start the series in San Diego. If…

  12. Padres Unveil Giant Golf ClubFoul Pole

    Apr 25, 2011, 4:08 PM EDT

    If you were up late watching the Phillies in San Diego last night, perhaps you thought to yourself, “Hey, why is there a giant golf club attached to the foul pole in right field?” Well, it’s advertising, obviously. From the San Diego Union-Tribune (via Deadspin), “The 88-foot tall club, including the club head graphic on…

  13. Phillies on the Late Show With Mat Latos

    Apr 25, 2011, 3:54 PM EDT

    It’s never a bad time to head out to San Diego for a few days, whether you’re coming off a few straight home wins or a series loss to the Brewers. It’s really quite lovely out there. The Phils will open a four-game series at Petco Park tonight with Roy Oswalt taking on Mat Latos.…

  14. Latest Rumors Suggest Flyers Could Play 2012 Winter Classic At Citizens Bank Park

    Apr 22, 2011, 7:46 PM EDT

    Those “Let’s Go Flyers!” chants you may have heard from the drunk fans at the Brewers blowout of the Phillies Tuesday at Citizens Bank Park certainly won’t be the last time you hear cheers for the orange and black at the ballpark, but new rumors surfacing this morning point to the entire 45,000+ crowd cheering…

  15. Phils Finally Find Some Pop, Avoid Sweep

    Apr 22, 2011, 7:13 PM EDT

    “The most important game is the game you’re playing.” That’s what Cliff Lee had to say about the importance of winning Wednesday afternoon’s tilt against Milwaukee to prevent the Phils first sweep of the season. Charlie Manuel felt a bit stronger about it though, saying that losing on Wednesday and heading out west coming off…

  16. Lee In the Daytime To Prevent the Sweep

    Apr 22, 2011, 7:04 PM EDT

    Phillies fans are always hopeful when Cliff Lee takes the mound, especially so today after two loses to start the series with the Brewers. But Clifton can’t beat the Brew Crew without any run support, something the Phillies have struggled a lot with recently. They’ll need to muster up more than the two hits they…

  17. Video: PhillieBot Bounces In First Pitch

    Apr 22, 2011, 7:03 PM EDT

    The much hyped PhillieBot, built by those smarty peeps at Penn, finally “threw” out the first pitch at the Phillies-Brewers game this afternoon. It bounced it a few feet in front of the Phanatic and the Philly faithful showered the robot with a smattering of boos. The robot was not affected by said boos because,…

  18. Video: The Pitching Robot

    Apr 22, 2011, 6:52 PM EDT

    Yesterday, we mentioned the robot that’s set to throw out the first pitch at the Phillies game this afternoon, but Philly.com went a step further and created the below video for all of you geeks out there. My favorite part, the Penn guy sitting on the ground on the sidewalk outside of CBP with his…

  19. Phils Lose Series As Offense Bottoms Out

    Apr 22, 2011, 6:42 PM EDT

    For a moment, Jimmy Rollins finally appeared poised to produce some runs from the three spot. Down 2-0 in the third inning with one out and runners on first and second, J-Roll lined a 1-1 curve ball deep to left that would have scored at least one, and potentially tied the game. Ryan Braun gave…

  20. Halladay Pitches, Mayberry Starts in Right

    Apr 20, 2011, 2:50 PM EDT

    After a night in which his team couldn’t muster up much at the plate, despite getting three extra innings to try and do so, Charlie Manuel is going to mix things up a bit this evening by giving John Mayberry Jr. his first start in right in place of Ben Francisco who hasn’t fared well…

  21. Robot to Throw Out First Pitch at Phillies-Brewers Day Game

    Apr 20, 2011, 2:36 PM EDT

    J.C. Romero is headed to the DL after contorting himself all goofy-like during last night’s loss, straining his calf in the process. He’ll be replaced by Mike Zagurski, but that’s only because it’s 2011. In another couple of years, he could be replaced by a robot like the one throwing out the first pitch at…

  22. Don’t Count Out Joe: Brewers In Town

    Apr 20, 2011, 2:14 PM EDT

    Fans around these parts have been a bit harsh on Joe Blanton lately. Criticism of his rough early start to the 2011 season may be a bit warranted, but regardless of that, all Phillies fans are pulling for him to turn it around this evening against the Brewers at CBP. Blanton (0-1, 10.45) will take…

  23. Interview with Mike Schmidt: On Booing, Pat Jordan, Mustaches, and Wine Pairings

    Apr 20, 2011, 1:51 PM EDT

    We had the chance to speak with Phillies Hall of Fame third baseman Mike Schmidt for ten minutes this morning as part of Michael Jack’s starring in a Field of Dreams-esque commercial by the official soft drinking sponsor of MLB, Pepsi Max. We only touched on soda briefly, and not in anyway Schmidty was expecting,…

  24. Mike Schmidt Responds to Winning Our March Madness Tournament

    Apr 20, 2011, 1:08 AM EDT

    Enrico: We held a March Madness-style bracket last month in which we picked the 64 greatest Philly athletes of the last 30 years. You were a No. 1 seed and defeated guys like Von Hayes, Wilbert Montgomery, Ron Hextall, Brian Dawkins, Ryan Howard… you met up with Dr. J in the finals and you actually…

  25. Phils Edge Marlins, Hold On for 3-2 Win, Avoid Shortened Series Loss

    Apr 20, 2011, 12:49 AM EDT

    you can’t catch Jimmy Carlos Ruiz’s 8-game hitting streak ended this afternoon, but that didn’t stop Chooch from delivering a game-changing swing in the eighth inning as he lifted a fly deep enough to center to score Ryan Howard from third and put the Phillies up 3-2. Jose Contreras did his best Brad Lidge impression,…
