      Phillies v. Marlins – Sunday, September 24    Originally uploaded by emc303. The Phillies remain 1/2 game up on LA for the wild card. Things aren’t as they used to be at the ball park in South Philly.  In recent weeks, when the Phillies take the field, I expect them to win. In Sunday’s…

    Yahoo News photo. If you can’t tell, that is a picture of former Phillies third baseman David Bell.  Bell has been spending his days in Brew City.  He helped the Brewers to a 5-3 victory on Sunday with his 7th home run of the season.  Here’s to you David Bell!  We don’t miss you for…

  3. Getting Wild

      Phillies v. Marlins – Saturday, September 23    Originally uploaded by emc303. Thunderous boos at a Phillies game can only mean two things in September 2006: a) Ryan Howard is being intentionally walked, or b) Pat Burrell just poked his head out of the dugout. The words of commenter RickShuBlues over at Beerleaguer touched…

    ESPN’s Jon Miller believes that people attacking Ryan Howard are completely off base.  He spoke out on a nationally televised game last week and also in today’s Inquirer: "From what I’ve seen and from talking to him and talking to his teammates about him, Ryan Howard is everything that is good about the game," Miller…

  7. Conlin and Fitzpatrick Share the Same Rusty Typewriter

    Sep 20, 2006, 1:52 PM EDT

    Apparently, Bill Conlin doesn’t like the Internet either.  I don’t know what it is with these crunchy old Inquirer/Daily News guys.  On Ryan Howard, who he painfuly dubs "the Rhynamiter:" But whenever an athlete is anointed with this level of acclaim, the Mickey Mice are never far behind. The Drive-By Media, as Rush Limbaugh likes…

  8. Eagles Fanhouse Updates

    Sep 20, 2006, 1:44 PM EDT

    Two of the featured bloggers over at the Fanhouse do a point/counterpoint feature.  Today they argue whether the Eagles need to be more of a running team or if they can win it in the air. MJD Point: The Eagles Are Going to Need to Run the Ball MDS Counterpoint: Philly’s Point Will Come from…

    A new feature here at The 700 Level: card of the week.  Who better to start us off than Von Hayes. Von Hayes, the infamous “5 for 1″ and the namesake of many a fantasy baseball team in the greater Philadelphia region.

  11. Not What the Phillies Needed

    Sep 19, 2006, 12:51 AM EDT

    You see that picture to the right?  That’s Pat Burrell roughly 4 nanoseconds before watching strike three zoom into the catchers mitt. It just so happened that I found myself with some great seats for Monday’s game against the Cubbies at Citizens Bank Park.  When I walked into the suite I noticed the label on…

  12. Kearse Done For Year

    Sep 18, 2006, 4:15 PM EDT

    As if yesterday’s pathetic performance could get any worse, the Eagles have lost Jevon Kearse for the season. Well that’s great.  In better news, Rod Hood could play this week and Lito Sheppard is doing better. E-A-G- ah shit.
