  1. Michael Carter-Williams is your Rookie of the Year and fie on anyone who tries to tell me otherwise

    It’s hard to remember the last argument that made me as defensive, territorial and generally homer-ish as this year’s Rookie of the Year debate. As far as I’m concerned, there’s only one option for this award, and has only been one since the very first week of the season; that of course being Philadelphia 76ers…

    With the ink still drying on the new deal signed on Tuesday, Andrew MacDonald is currently scheduled to be paid as one of the top 100 players in the NHL next season. Let that sink in for a moment. You don’t have to be a hockey salary cap expert to figure out why MacDonald’s six-year,…

  3. Defenseman Signing Day: Flyers ink MacDonald to big-money extension, Gostisbehere to entry-level deal

    Sure, the Stanley Cup Playoffs start for the Philadelphia Flyers in two days and all, but there was some pretty interesting news out of Flyerland today that had nothing to do with the upcoming series with the New York Rangers. The news actually involved contracts for defensemen that have generated a ton of chatter lately.…

  4. Sixers locked into lottery #2 seed, what it means and where it gets us

    It’s been all but a done deal for the last week or so, but with the Milwaukee Bucks’ loss in Toronto last night and our own Philadelphia 76ers’ win at home closer against the Celtics–a bookend of Ws in an otherwise L-heavy season of play at the Wells Fargo Center–it’s official: The #2 seed in…

  5. Last night’s Phillies loss in one neck-breaking GIF

    The bullpen. Roberto Hernandez sweated out six innings of two run ball and the bats put together some magic to the tune of a 5-run eighth inning that was capped by Dom Brown’s first homer in months. But the lasting image from Monday’s 9-6 loss to the Atlanta Braves at Citizens Bank Park will be…

  6. CEO Scott O’Neil promises Malik Rose — Sixers will have a new mascot next year

    Following up on the news that construction could soon be underway on a new practice facility, there appears to be another key addition on the way for the 76ers. Team CEO Scott O’Neil joined Zoo and Malik during last night’s broadcast to hype the team’s surprising success with new season-ticket sales and provide a glimpse…

  7. Report: Sixers could finally break ground on a new practice facility this summer

    Navy Yard Building Boom

    It’s been roughly 10 months since the Sixers first proposed building a new practice facility at the Navy Yard in South Philly, and according to a report from the Delco Times’ Chris Vito, construction could actually begin this summer, which sounds like a relief for head coach Brett Brown: “I believe we’re the last team…

  8. Chase Utley Is The Man, Part 1,334

    Chase Utley

    Todd Zolecki for MLB.com labeled him the “hottest hitter on the planet” on Monday. CSNPhilly.com’s Corey Seidman called this “the best two-week stretch” of the 12th-year veteran’s career. Around here, we usually just refer to him as “The Man.” Philadelphia Phillies second baseman Chase Utley has been tearing the cover off of the ball through…

    Since it was the last weekend of the regular season and playoff positioning still needed to be determined, this past weekend figured to be a pretty busy one for the Philadelphia Flyers. It turned out to be all that and then some. First, there was the 4-3 overtime win over the Penguins this past Saturday…

  10. There’s been a Charlie Manuel sighting, things like that

    Charlie Manuel

    The Phillies have been back at the ball yard in South Philly for just about a week now but it doesn’t really feel like spring has truly sprung until we get our first Charlie Manuel sighting of the season. Cholly is visiting the Lakewood BlueClaws this week as part of his role as Senior Advisor…

  11. LeSean McCoy says he’d take his two-year-old son over Tim Tebow

    The journalists over at TMZ tracked down Philadelphia Eagles running back LeSean McCoy in a California airport in order to ask him the pressing questions of our day. Who embodies the spirit of Philadelphia more, Will Smith or Rocky Balboa? Really, that was the first question asked. Then they asked Shady about the most expensive…

    Freebie: Wil Nieves While Ruben Amaro Jr. may not believe it, the children are our future. So we’ll give a pass to the youngsters who drew these pictures of the Phillies that were used on the jumbotron at the first Sunday game at Citizens Bank Park of the season. They are rather fascinating, however. The…
