  1. The People’s Paper, But New York

    May 29, 2006, 11:02 PM EDT

    The Sunday edition of The New York Daily News did a piece contrasting Philadelphia fans’ love affair with Sal Fasano and New Yorkers often unstable relationship with reigning MVP Alex Rodriguez.  Jesse Spector, a sports writer for the Daily News, asked me a few questions about Philly’s somewhat random penchant for the back up catcher. …

  2. Summer Madness

    May 26, 2006, 2:23 AM EDT

    The summer is here and the Phillies don’t completely suck, which is nice.  They salvaged a win yesterday in New York to keep themselves within striking distance of the Mets.  Cole Hamels health isn’t exactly promising, but beggars can’t be choosers.  They have a solid nucleus in their lineup which Pat Gillick can work with.…

  3. You Can Destroy Curt Schilling

    May 24, 2006, 1:19 PM EDT

    I knew Curt was known to go online and dabble on the Sons of Sam Horn message boards, but apparently he is a big video game freak as well.  He is working with the makers of Everquest II to help fight ALS.  They created a Schilling character within the game and if you defeat him…

    paper clipping photo via PhiladelphiaWillDo: A fine product of Boston College, Mike Mamula’s jersey still hangs on the wall of the Eagles Deli in beautiful Brighton Massachusetts.  His jersey sits in the high honor along side Polaroid photos of hungry BC kids who ate a pound of meat covered in cheese otherwise known as the…

    Not two weeks in to his Major League career, Cole Hamels misses his first start due to injury. From the AP: NEW YORK – Rookie pitcher Cole Hamels of the Philadelphia Phillies experienced soreness in the back of his left shoulder while throwing in the outfield Tuesday and was scratched from his scheduled start Wednesday…

  6. 5 Hours & 22 Minutes for Naught

    May 24, 2006, 12:56 AM EDT

    I watched some of it on MLB.tv, I followed some of it on MLB Gamecast, I had someone attempt to give me play by play over the phone, and I heard the end of it on MLB audio.  Ryan Madson came in to do some long relief and did an impressive job.  But if you…

  7. Mercy

    You probably don’t even know who this is, but he retired on Sunday prior to the Phillies victory over the Red Sox.  I don’t know much of anything about Alex Gonzalez but I do know he was doing nothing but hurting the Phillies.  He was batting a whopping .111 in his limited role off the…

    Friday random video: remember when Donovan used to run?  Those were the days.  By far the greatest game I’ve ever been to. And a little Larry Anderson audio for you from the other night in Milwaukee courtesy of Chase.

  10. People Intrigued by Cole Hamels

    May 18, 2006, 12:06 PM EDT

    According to the Inky: People want to watch Phillies lefthander Cole Hamels. His debut Friday night against the Cincinnati Reds on Comcast SportsNet drew a 7.7 rating, the highest rating for a Phillies game on the cable channel since July 4, 2001, for a game against the New York Yankees. People are excited about the…

  11. Kyle Ambrogi on ESPN

    A kid from Havertown makes it on to the front page of ESPN.com but for tragic reasons.  ESPN does a nice piece on Kyle Ambrogi.

  12. Pen Fumbles in Milwaukee

    May 18, 2006, 12:51 AM EDT

    I ended up making it to the game last night in Milwaukee.  Miller Park was a very nice place to watch a baseball game.  It’s unfortunate the outcome of the game didn’t turn out better.  Some observations: It’s pretty crazy listening to Bob Uecker actually call a real baseball game, something I’ve never really heard…
