  1. Nobody Cares About the Phillies

    Jul 5, 2006, 12:48 AM EDT

      Fourth    Originally uploaded by emc303. Just take a look at the 400 level from the July 4th game at Citizens Bank Park: empty.  The vibe in South Philly is that of a fan base that knows there will be no more than one Phillies game in October this year.  Even the booing is…

  2. Carney, Webber on Sports Bloggers Live

    Jun 29, 2006, 3:47 PM EDT

    The AOL Sports Bloggers Live radio show (which I appeared on a few weeks ago) had the newest Sixer Rodney Carney on live from some draft party.  The interview took place before he was drafted on Wednesday.  They also had aging veteran Chris Webber on later in the show.  Webber talks about how his Philadelphia…

  4. FireCharlieManuel.com For Sale

    Jun 28, 2006, 2:30 PM EDT

    The Phillies are pretty pathetic.  Charlie Manuel has been atrocious and FireCharlieManuel.com has been nothing but boring.  As of yesterday you can bid on the domain name FireCharlieManuel.com and create whatever kind of brilliant website you can come up with to get Cholly out of town.  I don’t have the time or the inclination to…

  5. Myers Finally Apologizes

    Jun 27, 2006, 4:27 PM EDT

    "First, while I dispute that the facts are as alleged, I recognize that my behavior was inappropriate and for that I apologize," Myers said in a statement Tuesday.

  6. That Big Papi Guy, He Isn’t too Bad

    Jun 26, 2006, 7:43 PM EDT

    When Pat Burrell came to bat today with the game on the line did anyone get the feeling he was going to come up with a clutch, go-ahead RBI? Hear that?  That’s the sound of crickets chirping. David Ortiz on the other hand.  Every time that guy comes to bat with the game on the…

  7. The Anti Aaron Rowand

    Jun 26, 2006, 9:16 AM EDT

    It only took Aaron Rowand one balls-to-the-wall catch to win over the fans off Philadelphia.  It only took Brett Myers one moronic act to become a hated villain.  Myers was never really a true fan favorite, but he was without a doubt the Phillies best starting pitcher and therefore embraced.  In one drunken night he…

    It ends with a wimper, but there is a nice little montage in the middle. Part 1 Part 3 Who can pick up the best joke in part 3?

  10. Fans Get Creative

    Jun 22, 2006, 12:40 PM EDT

    Not really sure what message they are going for, but it’s creative, and hey, it rhymes!  I think I’d prefer Larry over Charlie.Picture from Philly.com

  11. WATN: Larry Brown

    Jun 22, 2006, 10:36 AM EDT

    Larry Brown may have the best job in sports.  Wherever he goes to coach, he coaches for a year or two, then they pay him to leave.  Take the Knicks for example: Larry coached one year, was fired today, but should still receive the remainder of his contract worth $50 million.  One year at $50…
