  1. 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…

  2. 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,…

  3. 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. …

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. Virtual Tour of Citizens Bank Park

    Aug 16, 2006, 11:21 AM EDT

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

  7. Fire From Charlie

    Aug 16, 2006, 10:44 AM EDT

    An interesting piece today by Jim Salisbury telling of a confrontation last night between Charlie Manuel and Dallas Green: Before last night’s game, after the gates had opened to fans, Green made a rare trip to the field to show some friends around. It was the first time he and Manuel had seen each other…

  8. WATN: Dikembe Mutombo

    Aug 14, 2006, 6:14 PM EDT

    The trade that brought Mutombo to Philly was a somewhat controversial one at the time, but the end result was the Sixers making it to the NBA finals.  In the end I think it was a good idea bringing him in for his short time here.  Dikembe was always a likable guy when he played…

  9. Pedro v. Cole

    Aug 14, 2006, 2:12 PM EDT

    Every summer the Phillies seem to have a pivitol series that could seemingly make or break their hopes at a post season.  Coming into the four game home stand against the division leading Mets, the Phils are 4 games back of Cinci in the wild card hunt with another four teams in between.  With the…

  10. Gone, Gone, Gone

    Aug 14, 2006, 12:19 AM EDT

    In the sixth inning of Sunday’s loss to the wild card leading Reds, Brett Myers gave up back-to-back-to-back home runs.  You don’t see that very often.  Something else you don’t see very often is a major league ball player beating his wife in the middle of a public street.  Apparently the transcripts of 911 calls…

  11. Only 58 Days Away

    Aug 11, 2006, 11:18 AM EDT

    Great video for the first few minutes, then it kind of tapers off a bit.

  12. It was a Drive to Behold

    Aug 11, 2006, 9:18 AM EDT

    That’s how Dave Spadaro talks about the first drive of the Eagles preseason game last night against Cleveland.  Sure the Birds offense seemed to be clicking on the opening series and they walked away with 3 points, but this was the second game of the PREseason.  "A drive to behold?"  I could see if it…
