  1. Todd MacCulloch a Pinball Wizard

    Mar 23, 2007, 12:01 AM EDT

    Todd MacCulloch is the 208th best pinball player in the world.  As Tom McGinnis would say, "Are you kidding me!?!"  No, we’re serious.

    Mar 23, 2007, 12:01 AM EDT

    VOTE FOR THE 700 LEVEL! We’ve just received seventh-hand reports that Jason Weitzel has been spotted in the Berks County Mall KICKING PUPPIES.  One of our sources tells us that Mr. Weitzel, the proprietor of the Phillies blog Beerleaguer, is a serial puppy kicker.  Also of note: he was also FOR the Bobby Abreu trade…

  4. Lieber May Re-Enter Rotation With Injury to Garcia

    Mar 22, 2007, 10:09 AM EDT

    Despite the announcement that Jon Lieber was headed to the Phillies’ bullpen, he may end up beginning the season as a starter after all. Freddy Garcia, the top newcomer added by the Phillies this off-season, left last night’s game with biceps tightness in his pitching arm. Combined with a not-so-quiet concern that Garcia’s velocity has…

  5. Todd Fedoruk’s Scary Blow to the Face

    Mar 22, 2007, 12:15 AM EDT

    A scary moment during last night’s Flyers game happened only seconds after the first puck was dropped. "I’m a little sore but I’m fine right now," Fedoruk said in a statement. "I remember everything. I looked at him and he said, ‘Let’s go.’ He knocked me out on the way down. When I got off…

  6. Top 10 Sneaker Commercials

    Mar 22, 2007, 12:02 AM EDT

    A great time waster: a bloggers take on the top 10 sneaker commercials of all time.  The "Fooled You" one doesn’t belong in my opinion. My bias would say you could use an Iverson commercial.  And how in the world do you leave off Mars Blackmon.  And a little Barkley v. Godzilla for good measure.

  7. And the Winner of the Bullpen Sweepstakes Is… Jon Lieber!

    Mar 21, 2007, 4:57 PM EDT

    Uncle Charlie announced today that he’ll be sending career starter Jon Lieber to the bullpen starting tomorrow. Unable to move Lieber after signing Adam Eaton and Freddy Garcia this off-season, the Phils were left with an extra starter and a gaping void in their bullpen, and it appears Lieber was the odd man out. The…

  9. Eagles Bolster DL Rotation, Sign Montae Reagor

    Mar 21, 2007, 7:49 AM EDT

    It was announced late last night that former Colts DT Montae Reagor signed a three-year, $8.25 million contract ($2 million guaranteed) with the Eagles. Reagor should provide depth on the line and be a solid rotation option, especially on passing downs. With run defense being a big problem for the Birds last year, I was…

  10. Veterans Stadium Three Years Gone

    Mar 21, 2007, 1:26 AM EDT

    Driving down Broad Street in South Philly today, you almost forget about the giant eyesore where you spent so many wonderful Sundays.  Citizens Bank Park and Lincoln Financial Field now host the games we give our hearts to.  All it takes is a glimpse of a picture, a snippet of video, or the smell of…

  11. Who Goes To The Pen?

    Mar 20, 2007, 12:01 PM EDT

    Pat Gillick said Sunday that it’s unlikely he will trade one of the Phillies six starters before the start of the season.  Adam Eaton says the team hasn’t mentioned a role in the pen for him. "They haven’t talked to me about making me a reliever, so I’m still a starter as far as I…

    Reader Chris sends in some photos from his trip to Spring Training.  It looks like Chris had a wonderful time and it also looks like you need a new camera buddy.  I found this shot particularly interesting. Due to lack of other stuff to write about, we’re going to phone this one in and steal…
