  1. Nine and a Half

    Jun 15, 2006, 7:55 PM EDT

    So this was the big series with the Mets.  Time to show what you are made of.  3 games.  3 losses.  It was ugly. I think this nice little piece by the Beerleaguer really captures the feelings of Phillies fans. I’m not really shocked that the Phillies are 9.5 back of the Mets, just a…

  4. Can You Hear Me Now, Bullpen?

    Jun 14, 2006, 12:35 PM EDT

    I’ll be heading to the historic confines of Wrigley Field tonight to watch the struggling Cubs take on the Houston Astros.  Wrigley, which is usually known for its throw back style, is the first to take on a new technology: cell phones to the bullpen.  Motorola is sponsoring the deal which is using their handsets.…

    I was a guest last night on AOL Sports Bloggers Live, a weekly show put on by Jamie Mottram covering a wide variety of sports topics.  I was asked to come on and talk about the upcoming series the Phillies have with the Mets.  Also on the show were Matt Cerrone of MetsBlog.com, ESPN’s Jason…

  7. Abreu: Candy Eating God

    Jun 12, 2006, 2:46 PM EDT

    Quotes from an article on the Phillies website about Bobby Abreu without alteration: -Abreu, affectionately known as "Comedulce" (the candy-eater) in his country, has a reputation for enjoying the sweet things in life and is quite proud of it. -..he is a god in Venezuela. He can’t go anywhere without being mobbed — anywhere. -The…

    -Leave it up to Terrell Owens.  T.O. now plays for the Cowboys.  The Cowboys play in Dallas.  The Dallas Mavericks are playing the Miami Heat in the finals of the NBA playoffs.  He wore a Miami jersey last night in Dallas at game 1.  Mavs won.    Yahoo photo -I mean, this is the guy…

  10. Invincible Trailer

    Jun 7, 2006, 4:01 PM EDT

    His whole life was a million to one shot. No, wait, wrong movie. But the preview looks pretty exciting for any Eagles fan. For the uninformed, Mark Wahlberg plays Vince Papale and Greg Kinnear plays Dick Vermeil.  In theaters August 25th, just in time for football season.

  11. Merion to Host 2013 U.S. Open

    Jun 7, 2006, 2:50 PM EDT

    I’ve heard the story my Dad tells a dozen times.  He was at the U.S. open way back in the day, getting a drink out of the water fountain, when Chi-Chi Rodriguez asks him in broken English if he minded if a pro jumped in front of him.  It’s a pretty fun story, mostly because…

  12. King Cole Earns First Major League Win

    Jun 7, 2006, 1:46 AM EDT

      Charlie Manuel’s eyes widened when asked what he thought about his rotation. "What we’ve got is what we’ve got," he said. What the Phillies have got in Cole Hamels is exciting.  With the rotation being one of the bigger question marks lately, Cole stepping up on Tuesday against Arizona and earning his first major…
