  1. Watch Cliff Lee, who is awesome, high five a couple kids during his eight shutout innings

    Apr 22, 2014, 12:59 AM EDT


    This is one of the times where I’d like to give myself a little pat on the back for reason No. 1  of my preseason “Reasons to get excited for the 2014 Phillies” post: “At least we get to watch Cliff Lee every fifth day.“ I know, I really went out on a limb there.…

  2. Cliff Lee in the night time as Phils kick off four in LA where the ace has been great

    MLB: All Star Game

    The Phils look to build off the momentum of Sunday’s win after a couple of disappointing losses in the Rockies and finally have a rotation in place that can get Phillies fans a bit excited to tune in for some late night baseball action from the West Coast. There are four 10:10 pm EST starts…

  3. Good for Sixers: Jabari Parker could be favored at No. 1 overall over Andrew Wiggins by more NBA execs

    Apr 21, 2014, 3:09 PM EDT

    Jabari Parker, Andrew Wiggins

    As our resident NBA junkie Andrew Unterberger said on Twitter, the results of a poll of NBA execs placing Duke’s Jabari Parker as the top vote getter to be the No. 1 overall pick would be great for Sixers fans who desperately want to see Andrew Wiggins in Philadelphia next season. If you believe it,…

  4. Ray Emery will go again for Flyers in Game 3 on Tuesday

    Mason says still not ready. Wont dress for Game 3 — Tim Panaccio (@tpanotchCSN) April 21, 2014 Steve Mason suited up for practice, starting the speculation that he could potentially start in net for the Flyers in game three on Tuesday night in Philadelphia. But he told reporters afterwards that he would not be ready…

  5. The Phillies plan to ask MLB to review Howard’s single that could be a double to give him rare cycle

    Dinger the dinosaur

    The Phillies and Rockies played a high scoring affair on Sunday out in Colorado. Ryan Howard’s bat was smoking all day long. The Phillies slugger notched a single in the first, a 2-run home run in the third, a rare triple for the Big Piece in the 6th, and a single in the 7th that…

  6. Should Ray Emery or Steve Mason start Game 3 for the Flyers?

    Apr 21, 2014, 8:30 AM EDT

    Steve Mason, Ray Emery

    Did Ray Emery inadvertently start a goaltender controversy with his standout performance in the Philadelphia Flyers’ Game 2 victory over the New York Rangers? It seems he might have. Not long after the final horn sounded on the 4-2 win, the Flyers Postgame Live panel and especially former NHL player and head coach Rick Tocchet…

  7. Snapshots: Flyers draw even in series with Rangers

    Apr 20, 2014, 3:30 PM EDT

    Michael Raffl, Anton Stralman

    The best part about Game 1 of the Philadelphia Flyers’ first-round playoff series with the New York Rangers is it was only one game. The orange and black wiped the slate clean for Game 2, a much more complete all-around effort leading to a 4-2 victory at Madison Square Garden to knot the best-of-seven at…

  9. Cole Hamels gives the most Cole Hamels answer when asked which Olympic sport he’d play

    Apr 18, 2014, 4:08 PM EDT

    Phillies Spring 2014 - Cole Hamels

    The Phillies and Braves got rained out the other night which meant plenty of filler programming on the TV. One of the segments had the Phillies players and coaches answer some quirky questions. The guys were posed the question: “if you could play any one Olympic sport, which would it be?” Cole Hamels gave the…

  10. Steve Mason is alive and on the ice in New York

    Apr 18, 2014, 1:56 PM EDT


    Goaltending wasn’t really the issue Thursday night. Stupid penalties, stupid rules (based on bleeding) and all-around sloppy play were far more to blame than anything Ray Emery did or didn’t do in his crease. But here we are on Friday and Steve Mason is back on the ice. Mason, who was injured in a collision…

  11. The Secret Service once threatened to kill Mr. Met

    Apr 18, 2014, 9:50 AM EDT


    At some point, this country is going to have to have a serious talk about national security. Because the Secret Service has actually been threatening to kill mascots for far longer than we all want to admit. An excerpt from the book Yes, It’s Hot in Here: Adventures in the Weird, Woolly World of Sports Mascots, which…

    Carl Hagelin, Jason Akeson

    Jason Akeson on the back page of tomorrow’s Philadelphia Daily News: — Frank Seravalli (@DNFlyers) April 18, 2014 If the Philadelphia Flyers eventually lose their first-round playoff series with the New York Rangers as they did Game 1, Jason Akeson’s four-minute high-sticking penalty will live in infamy as one of the turning points. Should…
