  1. Phillies fall to the Mets

    Jun 22, 2005, 10:54 AM EDT

    There were two good things at last nights Phillies v. Mets game and one of them was the free Jimmy Rollins figurine I got.  The game was by far the most crowded I have seen CBP this season.  They reported it as a sell out and the biggest walk up crowd in ball park history. …

  3. Listen to 610 WIP Online

    Jun 21, 2005, 10:48 AM EDT

    WIP sent out an email this morning making it known that their broadcasts will now be available to listen to online.  It is about time.  I wish they allowed this when I was going to school in lands far far away from the radio waves of 610: There’s big news at WIP.  On Tuesday June…

  4. Phillies to Start Another Hot Streak

    Jun 21, 2005, 6:29 AM EDT

    That’s right.  While I was on vacation in the land of no internet and televised baseball the Phillies performed under par.  Well, they will soon pick up where they left off before I flew south.  The addition of my viewing and attendance of games will be directly proportional to the winning percentage of the Fightins’…

  5. Mexico is Hot

    Jun 20, 2005, 5:05 AM EDT

    As you may have noticed, this post has nothing to do with Philly Sports and I may stray from the main theme of this website a bit more often, just a heads up.I made it back alive.  Mexico is interesting.  Hot this time of year.  I ended up listening to 1776 by David McCullough and…

  6. Chiefs Ink Freddie Mitchell

    Jun 19, 2005, 12:15 PM EDT

    I think Freddie Mitchell will have a much better career in another town.  Kansas City doesn’t have the media frenzy that comes with playing on the biggest team in Philadelphia alongside one of the most egotistical humans ever, Terrell Owens. Freddie has great hands and could have continued to make small contributions to the Eagles…

  7. J Roll Agrees to 5 year contract extension

    Jun 13, 2005, 11:43 AM EDT

    Phils SS Jimmy Rollins agreed to a 5-year $40 million contract extension that will keep him with the club until 2010 and the Phillis have an $8.5 million option for 2011 with a $2 million buyout. Here’s a link to the article on phillies.com The Phils front office has finally started doing their job. 2…

  8. Way Down Here You Need a Reason to Move..

    Jun 11, 2005, 8:35 AM EDT

    Well I left for vacation this morning, I’m off to Mexico to drink pina coladas and.. well.. drink other frozen drinks that are not pina coladas.  I am unsure whether there will be internet readily available, but I am kind of hoping there is so I can upload some pictures I take and show you…

  9. David Bell Tolls!

  10. Swept Back to Texas!

    Jun 9, 2005, 10:04 PM EDT

    Things got a little heated in South Philly last night and the Phillies sent the Rangers packing.  The night started a little rough for Vincente Padilla giving up 3 runs on 2 homers in the first, but he settled down enough to keep the Phillies in it.  Balls were flying out of CBP and in…

  11. Andy Reid Plays to the Crowd

    Jun 9, 2005, 9:43 AM EDT

    Drew Rosenhaus and T.O. have been yapping again.  Those two guys combined simply baffle me.  But a guy all of Philadelphia loves, Andy Reid spoke at a leadership conference of sorts at the Wachovia Center on Monday.  He plays to the crowd well and makes his beliefs known: they can win a championship without Terrell…

  12. Phillies Win and Phillies Win

    Jun 8, 2005, 10:02 PM EDT

    Earlier in the day the Phillies traded Placido Polanco to Detroit for veteran closer Ugueth Urbina and infielder Ramon Martinez.  The pulse of Philadelphia seems to be positive and I would have to agree.  Tom G. wants to give the often criticized Edward Wade a high five.  He breaks down the potential bull pen situation…
