  1. 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.…

  2. How NOT to Help Your Negotiation

    Jul 28, 2006, 8:37 AM EDT

    The Eagles first round draft pick, Brodrick Bunkley, has been holding out of camp due to an inability to come to contract terms with the Eagles.  While trying to show he is worth the money, Bunkley seems to have gone and gotten himself in a bit of trouble. According to a report late Thursday night…

  3. WATN: Sal Fasano

    Jul 27, 2006, 8:52 AM EDT

    Our boy Sal made his first appearance with the Yankees last night.  Good to see his attitude hasn’t changed much.  NY Times, final item: The quote of the day came from new catcher Sal Fasano, who joined his seventh major league team in six years: “You’re just an animal sometimes, and you go from zoo…

  4. Donovan Loves him some Ropa Vieja

    Jul 26, 2006, 1:29 PM EDT

    I got an email from VisitPA.com asking to help promote tourism by linking to Donovan McNabb’s list of places to hit on your visit to Philadelphia.  Donovan is apparently a big fan of Old City, "but if it’s the weekend, try to make reservations! Old City is one happening neighborhood."  Donovan loves Bluezette for it’s…

  5. California Road Trip Recap

    Jul 26, 2006, 12:53 PM EDT

      Pacific Coast Highway    Originally uploaded by emc303. The road trip we took, which in part followed the Phillies from San Francisco down the coast to San Diego, turned into an enjoyable vacation more than a Phillies road trip.  We did catch 2 games in San Fran and part of a game in San…

  6. Stephen A: Master of the Obvious

    Jul 26, 2006, 10:18 AM EDT

    With news of Billy King telling Allen Iverson that he will be suiting up for the Sixers next year, Stephen A. Smith writes perhaps the easiest column ever to pen: "Stuck in neutral: Sixers are a hopeless mess."  Smith says he thought A.I. would be "using his mercurial, tailor-made And1 repertoire for the benefit of…

  7. Who is William Thomas?

    Jul 25, 2006, 4:37 PM EDT

    So Pinky didn’t practice today.  Good to see he is off to a great start to Camp.  Fans will really be happy to see him back in the line up.  But I want to know is who is William Thomas?  Apparently it is Tra Thomas, but why the name change people?  He probably thought there…

  8. Is One Kruk Enough?

    Jul 25, 2006, 9:25 AM EDT

    Just read the news that Harold Reynolds was fired from ESPN.  NY Post: The program already is dealing with the loss of information man Peter Gammons. Gammons is recovering from a brain aneurysm that occurred at the end of last month. The show’s main analysts had been Reynolds, Gammons and John Kruk. Kruk is the…

  9. This Post is About Meat Loaf

    Jul 25, 2006, 12:59 AM EDT

    So the Phillies fell short on a comeback attempt last night against the Braves despite Cole Hamels getting a career high 12 Ks.  He was on fire early, striking out 12 of the first 15 batters.  But things unraveled much like they usually do for the Phils and Hamels gave up a big inning that…

  10. Brett Myers Sign

    Jul 24, 2006, 11:47 AM EDT

    Brett Myers took the mound yesterday for the first time in Philadelphia since the incident last month in Boston.  The fans reaction at the game was reportedly rather tame.  This is likely due to the fact that no one wants to go watch the Phillies anymore.  But some fans did come out to heckle and…

  11. What We Missed

    Jul 24, 2006, 10:00 AM EDT

    I was on vacation cruising down the coast of California following the Phillies and the sunshine last week.  While I was gone I read the new book by Terrell Owens titled "T.O."  Wait, sorry, I meant I sat in 6 hours of Los Angeles traffic.  But we did hear about T.O. and Donovan McNabb getting…

  12. So Long, Sal Fasano

    Jul 23, 2006, 11:41 PM EDT

    That may be a frown and not a Fu Manchu after this weekend. It’s a sad day for mustached men everywhere: Sal Fasano, one of the few uplifting stories of this sorry Phillies season, was designated for assignment over the weekend.  Despite becoming a fan favorite, the hard working journeyman catcher’s numbers just didn’t impress…
