  1. Arizona Fans Are Savages

    Dec 12, 2006, 10:32 AM EDT

    Not sure if you saw it, but Arizona Diamonback fans — apparently they do exist — are the worst fans in all of sports.  They threw bottles onto the field!??!  That just goes to show that all those stories you hear about D-Back fans being obnoxious drunks who have no class are entirely true. What’s…

  2. Adios, Barajas and Nunez

    Dec 12, 2006, 7:54 AM EDT

    Todd Zolecki reported yesterday that the Phillies would not be picking up the options on "catcher" Rod Barajas and 3B Abraham Nunez. I won’t lie, I thought Barajas was a decent signing last year, but he turned out to be awful, losing the starting job and eventually the backup work in embarrassing fashion. We’ve known…

  3. Is the Brian Dawkins We Knew Finished?

    Dec 11, 2006, 3:26 PM EDT

    Coming into this season, Eagles fans kind of all expected B-Dawk to strap in and put in one of his signature beastly seasons we’ve come to know him for.  Sure, he was approaching the twilight of his career, but he had another good season or two in him.  Right? Turns out he likely won’t be…

  4. Know Your Target Audience and Make Them Feel Happy

    Dec 11, 2006, 12:45 PM EDT

    We mentioned back in January that Flyers fans were voted the most intimidating in the sport by NHL players.  Now the Flyers are using the poll as part of their marketing strategy.  Brilliant. Dear Philadelphia Flyers Marketing Department, Please send all payments via PayPal to If the Flyers keep winning games by the score…

  5. I Miss Terrell Owens and His Antics

    Dec 11, 2006, 10:55 AM EDT

    There, I said it. And his ability to get in the endzone. Who else needs some popcorn?  The man can entertain. Video after the jump.

  6. Return of the Bullies

    Dec 11, 2006, 9:45 AM EDT

    I’m gonna go out on a limb and guess that many of you didn’t stay up to watch the Flyers take on the Canucks in Vancouver last night. After a few Belgians and a double IPA, I didn’t either. But man, I wish I had. The Flyers put a hurtin on the Canucks, in more…

  7. Regarding Uncle Charlie

    Dec 11, 2006, 12:59 AM EDT

    Many of the responses to the news that Charlie Manuel would be back as Phillies skipper were quite negative.  I realize Matt weighed in already, but I thought I’d throw my two cents out there. I like Charlie Manuel.  Initially, I thought him to be that country bumpkin who didn’t know how to form complete…

  8. Report: Phillies Ownership Willing to Sell Team

    Dec 10, 2006, 7:08 PM EDT

    This news caught me by surprise.  More to come as we learn some details. David Montgomery and Bill Giles along with the array of silent partners have never really given this town the kind of hope this city needs. As Glen Macnow said this evening, the bottom line is this team needs a majority owner…

  9. Big Rube Wants to Help Change Baseball

    Dec 10, 2006, 4:12 PM EDT

    A nice piece in today’s Daily News by Stan Hochman talks about the lack of inner-city interest in baseball and how Big Rube would like to change that. "I tell Jimmy Rollins he’s terrific," Reuben Harley said the other day. "I tell Ryan Howard he’s great. And then I tell ‘em, if they walked through…

  10. Andy Reid is Not Blog Efficient

    Dec 10, 2006, 2:16 PM EDT

    He even said so himself!  Look: I’m not blog efficient, but it sounds like people can be very creative there. That has nothing to do with me. I just wanted to make sure people understood that." Hey thanks, Andy.  We bloggers are creative types.  And for the record, it was that "Mainstream Blogger" over at…

    The Hardball Times takes a look at some of the reasons the Phillies didn’t win a game against the Rockies this postseason. [Hardball Times]
