  1. Fallout From the Forsberg Trade

    Feb 16, 2007, 1:48 PM EDT

    By now you’ve heard that the Flyers have dealt team captain Peter Forsberg to the Nashville Predators, who are now clearly a Cup favorite. The news is of course shocking to no one, as the Flyers are at the bottom of the standings with no hope of climbing out this year, and the Predators needed…

  2. Remember When We Hated T.O.?

    Feb 16, 2007, 8:57 AM EDT

    If any one thing can diminish the intensity of an Eagles/Dallas game, it has to be a 5-8 record that puts you firmly in the basement of the NFC East.  The fact that it’s the hated Cowboys at the top of the division certainly stings, but I don’t sense the usual venom. When the ‘Boys…

  3. In Search of Stephen A. & Elvis

    Feb 15, 2007, 4:36 PM EDT

    I’m heading out for Las Vegas shortly.  It should be a great weekend of fun and relaxation.  I’m going to be throwing up random posts periodically.  Send tips to my email or just leave a comment here.  For more All Star Weekend fun from the bloggers, True Hoop and Brett from the Fanhouse will be…

  4. Two Sixers Fans Think Agent Zero is ‘Scum’

    Feb 15, 2007, 4:05 PM EDT

    By all accounts, Gilbert Arenas seems like a fine looking young man.  Two Sixers fans at last night’s game had some harsh words for the most entertaining personality in basketball. Dan Steinberg of D.C. Sports Bog, which is among my favorite sites on the web, was at the Sixers game last night and chatted it…

  5. Goosebumps? Wait, Goosebumps?

    Feb 15, 2007, 3:39 PM EDT

    For the life of me, I can’t remember the last time I saw a Phillies commercial and thought, "Wow.  That was a great commercial."  I’m going to go out on a limb and say the Phillies new marketing campaign titled "Goosebumps" isn’t going to change that. Ryan Howard gave Phillies fans goosebumps every time he…

  6. Give Us Your Poor, Your Tired, Your Unsigned, Nontendered Masses

    Feb 15, 2007, 11:07 AM EDT

    With the winter meetings coming to an unproductive end, and less than attractive options in the high-end but mediocre free agent market, the Phillies may turn their interest toward lesser free agents and the players who were nontendered by their clubs, thus hitting the open market. Two names have been mentioned above the others as…

  7. Officially: Pitchers and Catchers

    Feb 15, 2007, 9:24 AM EDT

    The Phillies players have been trickling in for days now, but today marks the official day when pitchers and catchers are to report to Clearwater.  Brett Myers rolled into spring training in a hot red sports car while Jon Lieber rolled in his new.. uh.. I think that’s a truck.  Who would want one of…

  8. A Balmy High of 60 in Clearwater

    Feb 14, 2007, 6:34 PM EDT

    The weather in Clearwater isn’t exactly tropical but it sure beats what Philadelphia is dealing with this evening.  Utley and Rowand have been down there for a couple of days now — not surprising to anyone, is it? — and Pat the Bat had a few words with the media today pointing out he wants…

  9. He Had a Prescription

  10. Andy Reid and the Media

    Feb 14, 2007, 12:36 PM EDT

    Sure the Eagles are spinsters at times, but SI is taking it a bit far. Reid’s temporary departure doesn’t feel as much like a leave as it does a strategic maneuver meant to: a) keep him away from the media; and b) send the message to the public that he is making his family a…

  11. Andre Miller Among League’s Most Coveted

    Feb 14, 2007, 6:04 AM EDT

    The Sixers are a bit of a conundrum lately.  First they rid the organization of the Billy King era — a move most of the basketball world agreed with.  Now that they’ve brought in local boy Ed Stefanksi to run the show, the Sixers have decided to try something new.  Winning. That’s where I think…
