    Werth-a-rine

    Philadelphia fans know all to well that Jayson Werth is something of a character. He developed a reputation as a guy who didn’t always want to talk to the media and some painted him as a player who just had a bad “aura” to him. But he was a pretty darn good right fielder who…

    One of the most polarizing athletes in this city, reports of a potential DeSean Jackson trade received a largely negative reaction across the board.

    Aside from Claude Giroux and the Flyers going on a nice little hot streak, it seems like it’s been all Jimmy Rollins not leading this and DeSean Jackson me me me me-ing that in the Philly sports talk world these days. So even the most minor bit of positive news out of Clearwater gets us…

    Here’s a pretty cool video of some of the folks over at Wilson heading to Clearwater to hook up some of the Phillies with custom gloves. Jonathan Papelbon, Marlon Byrd, Carlos Ruiz and others talk about what they like in a glove and we learn a little bit about some of their superstitions. Apparently some…

    DeSean Jackson trade rumors have been growing in number and force over the past few weeks. As it turns out, where there’s smoke, there’s probably fire. CSN’s Derrick Gunn dropped the most specific report yet about a potential move by the Philadelphia Eagles to deal the All-Pro wide receiver. While the team is not described…

    If it was just Rowlf the Dog telling us he was a Flyers fan, we might have passed on pointing out this promo for the new Muppets movie. But whatever marketing people put this together realized there are penguins on staff over in Muppet Land, and used them in a delightful double entendre. So good…

    The Eagles didn’t put together a Dream Team 2.0 over the past few weeks — that’s probably a good thing — but they did piece together some quality players on reasonable deals that can help them become a more complete team. Obviously, there are still needs to be addressed, potentially through the NFL draft, but…

    “We are the team to beat.” With those six simple words, Jimmy Rollins gave the Philadelphia Phillies the swagger to seize the NL East in 2007, the first in a run of five straight division titles that included a world championship in ‘08. J-Roll was an undisputed leader inside the clubhouse. Of course, it helped…

    You’re only a four-year-old kid once. Eventually you’re going to grow up, go to middle school, then high school, probably college, find a career of your own, and then one day all of that hair on your head will just disappear. So little Phillip Martelli, grandson of St. Joe’s head coach Phil and son of…

    Why is the sky blue? Did the chicken or the egg come first? What happened to the dinosaurs? Who will solve the Flyers’ goaltending woes of the last two decades or so?
