  1. I’m a Bit Superstitious

    Aug 24, 2006, 4:10 PM EDT

    Only hours after I talk about the Phillies recent hot streak, Cole Hammels gets hammered and the Phils are losing 11-1 (in the 6th). That is all.

  2. Hot Streak Continues

    Aug 24, 2006, 12:14 PM EDT

    The Phils continued their recent hot streak by getting contributions all around including Joe Thurston getting his first hit in the majors since 2004.  This was a big game for Myers and the Phils, the win put them only 1.5 back of the Reds.  I think it is safe to say the Phils are in…

  3. Dajuan Wagner back to Philly?

    Aug 23, 2006, 12:21 AM EDT

    A little bit of rare Sixers news in the off season.  SI.com had a note that Wagner was recently in Philly: Dajuan Wagner had a workout with the 76ers recently at their practice facility. The Golden State Warriors have been to Cherry Hill to watch Wagner play. The 6-foot-1, 195-pound Wagner is trying to work…

  4. Bobby Seems to be Doing Alright

    Aug 22, 2006, 7:33 PM EDT

    So it turns out that Bobby Abreu wasn’t being lazy out there in right field, he just isn’t capable of being unnerved.  In case you missed it, the Yankees swept the Red Sox over the weekend in a 5 game series and Abreu had the go ahead RBI in Monday’s game. Abreu was profiled today…

  5. Todd Pinkston is Weak

    Aug 22, 2006, 2:13 PM EDT

    Today is Maddenoliday! ESPN’s Page 2 summarizes some of the more unique player attributes: 35 – The strength rating for Eagles receiver Todd Pinkston. How weak is Stinkston? Thirty-nine kickers and punters are given higher ratings. Thirty-nine. Yikes. If that’s not a punch in the frail, tender, feeble stomach, then I don’t know what is.…

  6. Phils Win Game, Lose Rowand

    Aug 22, 2006, 10:33 AM EDT

    It was one of those nasty plays you cringe at when they show the replay over and over.  Utley and Rowand were running full speed towards each other and their collision flipped Rowand over to land awkwardly on his head.  When it first happend it appeared Rowand would have gotten a concussion or damaged his…

  7. Jamie Moyer: What’s Not to Like?

    Aug 21, 2006, 8:00 AM EDT

    The Phillies are going to make baseball fun to watch for the rest of the summer.  After taking two of three from the Nationals the Phils remain 2.5 out of the wild card. The big news of the weekend was the move by Pat Gillick to bring in Jamie Moyer.  I think Beerleaguer summed it…

  8. Vince Papale: Like Rocky, Only with Pads

    Aug 21, 2006, 12:14 AM EDT

    For those of you who don’t remember the late ’70s or simply weren’t even born yet like me, the Inquirer has a piece looking at Papale’s story.  They go as far as to call Papale a "Real Life Rocky."  The Inqy gets a bit sappy over Papale’s story.  While Vince’s story is a great one,…

  9. Chris Coste: A Dizzy Guy

    Aug 17, 2006, 9:42 AM EDT

    Chris Coste’s impressive performance in last night’s victory over the Mets (3-3, 2 RBI’s, a HR, and a run scored) is just the latest in his unlikely run this season with the Phillies.  On Tuesday the New York Times did a great piece taking a look at the lifetime minor leaguer finally getting his shot. …

  10. We Talkin’ Bout Practice, T.O. Style

    Aug 17, 2006, 9:23 AM EDT

    Like he said, Terrell Owens is the only one who knows his body.  In this ESPN video, T.O. starts a little rant about practice and throws Allen Iverson’s name out there.  Every time Terrell Owens speaks I get reminded a little bit of Charlie Manuel.  I’m not quite sure what that means though. It’s nice…

  11. Gillick Wasn’t Kidding

    Aug 16, 2006, 12:03 PM EDT

    Pat Gillick has said in recent weeks that he planned to increase the Phillies scouting internationally and an MLB article today demonstrates his point.  The Phillies are among a number of teams looking at Yomiuri Giants slugger Seung-Yeop Lee: Lee, who hit an Asian record 56 home runs in 2003 in his last year with…

  12. Virtual Tour of Citizens Bank Park

    Aug 16, 2006, 11:21 AM EDT

    This is obviously an old video, but fun none the less.
