    Inqy: Lowell reportedly has agreed to a three-year, $38 million contract to remain with the Boston Red Sox, for whom he won World Series MVP honors last month. ESPN.com reported that the Phillies’ offer was for four years and $50 million, and that for a brief moment, the Phils thought they had Lowell. I don’t…

  2. B&C Prematurely Celebrating Jimmy Rollins Day

    Jan 20, 2007, 12:19 AM EDT

    Meech may or may not be known for being premature in certain areas, but he has faith in our man J-Roll.  We can dig it.  He’s wasted no time in anointing November 20th, 2007, "Jimmy Rollins Day."  He’s got a big day planned and we’ve been told it may feature some of Jimmy’s family highlights…

  3. La Salle to Explore Not Having a Football Team Again

    Jan 19, 2007, 10:54 PM EDT

    Citing difficulty in finding suitable opponents in the ever-weakening MAAC, La Salle has dissolved its football team again. The Explorers took a 56-year break before, bringing the program back in 1997. The school insists the decision has nothing to do with the team’s performance, but going 0-10 doesn’t exactly help. La Salle is the sixth…

    If you’re a basketball fan, you should find yourself at the Wachovia Center on Saturday at 1:00 when Villanova takes on Texas.  Get your first look at Kevin Durant, the player some are saying will outshine Greg Oden. As usual, TrueHoop is all over the Kevin Durant angle, noting that he is "an incredible prospect."…

  5. “Mike Richards Is An All-Star” Write-In Campaign Underway

    Jan 19, 2007, 3:14 PM EDT

    When the All-Star ballots were released last week, the Flyers were decently represented, with the likes of Danny Briere, Marty Biron, Simony Gagne, and Kimmo Timonen on the list. However, a few fans have noticed one omission—Mike Richards. Richards has put together a great season since being moved up the ranks and given a role…

  8. Yo Philly, I Did It!

    Jan 19, 2007, 11:14 AM EDT

    Okay, so I didn’t personally do it, but over 15,000 people decided to go out for nice little run yesterday; some of them didn’t stop for 26.2 miles.  When they finished, they received these nifty little shiny blankets that say, "Yo Philly, I Did It!" 26.2 miles for a tee shirt and a pretzel… these…

  9. Westbrook Super, McNabb Not So Much

    Jan 19, 2007, 6:00 AM EDT

    Perhaps my favorite article on the Eagles 17-7 victory over the Dolphins is Ashley Fox’s piece titled, "Man and Superman, McNabb and Westbrook."  In the early days of The 700 Level, I used to throw around the nickname "Super Five" with regularity.  I believed in the dynamic duo of McNabb’s arm teamed up with his…

  11. WATN: Robert Esche Signs With Russian Club

    Jan 19, 2007, 12:12 AM EDT

    When the Flyers traded for Marty "the Save-ior" Biron last season, the writing was on the wall that Robert Esche’s career in Philly was over. Esche failed to land on another NHL roster during the off-season, and the Boston Globe reports that he has signed with Ak-Bars Kazan of the Russian Super League. Wonder how…

  12. Should The Sixers Trade Andre Miller?

    Jan 18, 2007, 3:32 PM EDT

    Andre Miller will never live up to being the main asset the Sixers received in return for Allen Iverson.  He is a nice player, a point guard who knows how to run an offense, something the Sixers have lacked since the days of "6 feet of" Eric Snow.  It is unlikely that Miller will be…
