  1. J-Roll: Still the Man, Still Predicting Big Things

    Jan 28, 2007, 12:32 AM EDT

    Jimmy Rollins, hot off his MVP season, is back to predicting big things for the Phillies. "We’ll win probably 100 games . . . 100 games will get us to the playoffs," Rollins told Comcast SportsNet last night, when asked for his forecast for next season. "There’s going to be fireworks, I know that much…

  2. Is Billy King Delusional?

    Jan 27, 2007, 9:26 PM EDT

    Today’s Daily News says Andre Miller isn’t going anywhere. "Andre’s our point guard," the 76ers’ president/general manager was saying before last night’s 105-97 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers. "That’s what we needed. That’s why we got him. You’ve got to have a point guard to compete." Billy, flip over to the standings pages of the…

  3. Hartnell Gets Two for Dashing

    Jan 27, 2007, 8:56 PM EDT

    The NHL has suspended Scott Hartnell for two games after his hit on the Bruins’ Andrew Alberts last night. Marking the fourth time a Flyer has been suspended in this young season, the reaction around the league has been harsh. Maybe I’m on the side of the fan spectrum that has an unhealthy passion to…

  4. Phillies Weak on the Farm

    Jan 27, 2007, 7:25 PM EDT

    According to Craig Law, a random ESPN analyst, the Phillies’ farm system is bad.  How bad?  There is only one team with a worse ranking, San Diego. 29. Philadelphia: Thin system which got thinner by the sudden rise of Cole Hamels. The closest solid-average prospect to the majors here is Carlos Carrasco, who spent the…

    From Tom McCarthy, who spent the last two seasons as a play-by-play announcer for the New York Mets on WFAN, is returning to his roots as a member of the Phillies broadcasting team, Rob Brooks, Manager, Broadcasting announced today. No word on who, if anyone, is the odd man out.

  6. Football Food For Fans Week 11

    Jan 27, 2007, 4:04 PM EDT

    Football Food For Fans ~ Week 11, originally uploaded by Mark K_NJ Despite this week’s installment not involving meat of any kind, it gets my thumbs up.  While not a seafood guy at heart, anything involving buttery lobster is perfectly acceptable. From Mark’s flickr page: On the menu was homemade New England Clam Chowder. I…

  7. McNabb Says Nothing’s “Bittersweet” After SNF Showdown

    Jan 27, 2007, 9:58 AM EDT

    Philly’s predictably abuzz with QB controversy theories and opinions after A.J. Feeley turned in a great (but by no means perfect) performance against the Patriots on Sunday. Despite throwing 3 picks that cost the Eagles the game early and late, just about everything Ace did in between those fateful drives was precise and methodical, picking…

  8. No Trash Talk Today

    Jan 27, 2007, 7:39 AM EDT

    Redskins safety Sean Taylor died this morning, unable to recover from the gunshot wound he sustained yesterday. Our condolences to his family and friends, the Redskins, and their fans.

  9. A Quick Point on The FeeleyMcNabb Double Standard

    Jan 27, 2007, 6:33 AM EDT

    There is a double standard in Philadelphia.  I don’t think it’s caused by one singular thing but rather a combination of a whole lot of things.  If Donovan McNabb went out on Sunday night against the Patriots and put up the same exact game that A.J. Feeley put up, Philadelphia would be calling him a…

  10. Flyers Dash-ing Despite Loss

    Jan 26, 2007, 10:54 PM EDT

    With the Bruins coming to town for the first time since a hotly debated Randy Jones hit knocked Patrice Bergeron out indefinitely, things were bound to get dicey in South Philly tonight. Unfortunately, Boston got to the Flyers and Marty Biron early, jumping out to a 3-goal lead. It was expectedly rough though, with a…

  11. Massholes Respond to Boston Dominance

    Jan 26, 2007, 1:58 PM EDT

    This morning I emailed one of my most beloved friends from my Boston College days to get his take on last night’s near dethroning of America’s Team.  The following is the response I received from Jimmy "The Bucket" who is originally from Brockton.  Or maybe it’s Dorchester?  It really doesn’t matter where as long as…

  12. To Do This Weekend

    Jan 26, 2007, 12:57 PM EDT

    Tonight is likely the best night the rest of the season to head down to the Wachovia Center.  A rematch of the battle two nights ago in which Andre Iguodala stepped up and showed he can play a little bit.  The Sixers beat the Cavs in double OT in Cleveland on Wednesday, tonight they battle…
