  2. How the Phillies Can Win The NL East

    Jul 11, 2006, 2:08 AM EDT

    Trade Ramon Henderson to the Mets. It seems like Philadelphia is good at winning things other than championships: Abreu wins the HR Derby last year, Iggy should have won the Slam Dunk contest this year, Iverson won the All Star game MVP a few years ago, and Ryan Howard comes up big to beat the…

  4. The Azzurri Prevail

    Jul 9, 2006, 10:34 PM EDT

    Those Italians sure know how to party.  As I mentioned at the start of the World Cup, I’m no Soccer expert but the finale of this year’s world spectacle proved to be as entertaining as one could hope for.  Sure, watching the champions of the world being crowned based on penalty kicks seems a bit…

    Jul 6, 2006, 2:32 PM EDT

    Trade em all!  Wags knows best.  It’s not really shocking but SI.com has a piece that says the Phillies should get blown up, well, because they blow.

    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…

  12. 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…
