  1. Football was Played Yesterday

    Aug 7, 2006, 12:10 AM EDT

    Timmy Chang! So it was mostly guys you hope you never have to see on the field this year for the Birds, going up against Raiders you likely never heard of.  But it was football.  With the Eagles schedule having 5 preseason games this year, the first teams saw extremely little action.  The action they…

  2. Reggie White Induction Sunday in Canton

    Aug 4, 2006, 1:03 AM EDT

    The Eagles open up their 2006 action with a game Sunday night in Canton, Ohio against the Oakland Raiders.  It will air at 8 PM on NBC. The highlight of the day will likely be the enshrinement of number 92, Eagle great, Reggie White.  Sara White, Reggie’s widow, has helped put together a 90 minute…

  3. Chase Utley is The Man

    Aug 3, 2006, 12:01 AM EDT

    On a little infield grounder which seemed to go right back to the pitcher, Chase hustled his ass down to first base and beat out the throw from Ryan Flores.  There was a brief controversy as to whether the play would be called a hit or an error.  They initially gave him credit for a…

  4. Maybe we could get Zidane!

    Aug 2, 2006, 11:12 AM EDT

    In the Inqurier a few days ago they mentioned Philly being a very possible choice for an MLS team.  Likely taking the Wizards out of Kansas City.  I wonder if the Wizards get more fan support than the Royals? July 1 was the last day of Rowan’s exclusive negotiating rights with the league, Kuhns told…

  5. 33 and it’s Humid Outside

    Aug 2, 2006, 9:46 AM EDT

    Chase extended his hitting streak last night to 33 games with a single in the first.  The Phillies website actually has a somewhat entertaining piece on Chase and his streak. The superstitious Utley won’t utter a word about the streak, or any streak-related topics. While in the teens and early 20s, Utley’s response was typically,…

  6. What is this Mascot?

    Aug 2, 2006, 5:33 AM EDT

    On part of our recent road trip to California, The Birdman encountered this mascot in San Diego.  The Padres real mascot is a swinging friar.  There was a red one of these guys running around the stadium as well.  How many mascots does a team need?

  7. WATN: Bobby Abreu

    Aug 1, 2006, 10:34 PM EDT

    Abreu made his debut tonight for the Yankees going 0-3 with a base on balls and a run scored. Jayson Stark’s most recent writings over at ESPN will make you depressed.  Some lowlights: Now presenting the most lopsided deadline deal of this millennium: Abreu and Lidle for four guys the Yankees already have forgotten they…

  8. Arthur Rhodes may be a scrub, but Cory Lidle is still a scab

    Aug 1, 2006, 4:05 PM EDT

    Cory Lidle left town, and much like Billy Wagner last summer, criticized the Phillies clubhouse attitude.  Well Arthur Rhodes, who stinks just as much as Lidle this year, wasn’t too happy about it and fired back at Cory: "He is a scab," Rhodes said. "When he started, he would go 51/3 innings and (the bullpen)…

  9. Jaworski last week, Enrico this week

    Aug 1, 2006, 2:05 PM EDT

    AOL Sports Bloggers Live is a weekly show put on by a number of guys from the AOL Network of Sports Blogs.  They have a weekly show on Mondays and have guests ranging from Roger Clemens and Mike Schmidt to Jerry Rice and Jim Brown or Dwayne Wade and CWebb.  On their show last week,…

  10. Chasing Jimmy

    Jul 31, 2006, 11:10 AM EDT

    Chase Utley has been a hitting machine as of late.  He hit in his 30th and 31st consecutive games yesterday putting him in second place on the Phillies hitting streak list with the great "Big" Ed Delahanty.  Big Ed was no joke either: he was killed in a freak accident when he was swept over…

  11. Bobby & Sal, Together at Last

    Jul 30, 2006, 11:48 PM EDT

    If you look at the players involved in the trade the Phillies made on Sunday with the Yankees, you would think the Bronx Bombers saw the Phillies as the little kid in the candy shop.  The Yankees got an All Star right fielder in Bobby Abreu and a starter in Cory Lidle who will have…

  12. The Black Hole is No More

    Jul 29, 2006, 12:21 PM EDT

    In a move that would lead you to believe the Phillies may have a busy next few days, David Bell was traded to the Brewers. Beerleaguer: Symbolically the biggest deal since the Jim Thome trade, the Phillies’ starting third baseman for the past four seasons was traded to Milwaukee for a 22-year-old reliever last night.…
