    Jan 8, 2007, 5:53 AM EDT

    With the Phillies trade last night of Michael Bourn for Brad Lidge, Pat Gillick has stated that Myers will return to the starting rotation.  "Brett Myers is better than any starter available," Gillick said.  Indeed he is, Pat.  Now how does Brett feel about being reshuffled once again? "Pat asked me how I felt about…

    So last nights Eagles game was one of the most exciting finishes we’ve seen in a while right?  Let’s see what Bill Conlin made of it.  His lede: The long snapper snapped. The long snappee plucked the football out of the rain with hands sure enough to catch a baby dropped from the roof of…

    Jan 8, 2007, 12:48 AM EDT

    Jeff Garcia led the Eagles to their 6th straight win last night.  Children all across the Delaware Valley are rocking his jersey and Playboy Playmate of the year Carmella Decesare is wearing his diamond ring.  What on earth could be the key to his success? That’s right.  He drives Gary Barbera.

    ESPN: The Phillies sent outfielder Michael Bourn, pitcher Geoff Geary and minor leaguer Mike Costanzo to Houston, and received infielder Eric Bruntlett in addition to Lidge.

  6. Eagles Personnel Guys to Blame

    Jan 7, 2007, 2:22 PM EDT

    It’s not everyday that you find one of the Eagles beat writers ripping into the front office.  The media has no problem attacking Donovan McNabb or Jevon Kearse for not performing well but when it comes to the guys making the decisions, they seem to get a pass more often than not. That changed yesterday…

    Comcast is reporting that SS Sean Considine has been placed on Injured Reserve with a shoulder injury. Quintin Mikell, who has filled in well for weeks while Brian Dawkins was hurt, will take over for Considine.

    ESPN’s Sal Pal reports that the Eagles will have S Michael Lewis and CB Will James back in the lineup today.

  10. Damn you, future! Lindros set to retire.

    Jan 6, 2007, 11:48 PM EDT

    I still remember it like it was yesterday… It was the summer of 1992.  After the Quebec Nordiques drafted "The Next One" Eric Lindros against his wishes (he had previously informed the team that he would never play for them), the NHL practically forced the now-defunct squad to deal him so that the eventual successor…
