  1. Wayne Simmonds on Hartsy and Voracek playoff beard dye jobs: ‘Gingers should stick to being gingers’

    “I couldn’t let [Voracek] do it alone. After dinner last night I went to the drug store and got the Just for Men.” That was Scott Hartnell’s explanation for the dark dye job on his playoff beard this morning. If you missed it, Jake Voracek showed up at practice yesterday with a dyed beard of…

  2. Brett Brown is absolutely nervous like the rest of us about the NBA Draft Lottery

    Brett Brown

    Brett Brown tells it like it is. That’s one of the things most Philadelphians like about him. When the guys in suits on Draft Lottery Night reveal the teams hidden in those cards determined by some ping pong balls bouncing around, Brown is absolutely going to be nervous. “That night when you find out where…

  3. Today’s Phillies game probably won’t be very well attended based on these photos

    Apr 17, 2014, 10:59 AM EDT

    scenes from Wednesday night

      It’s currently in the mid 40′s here in Philadelphia. It could get as balmy as 50 or 51 by first pitch around 1:05 pm this afternoon. But how many people really want to go sit in the cold to watch a team that couldn’t put up a single run on the Braves last night…

  4. It doesn’t matter what words I put here because Keith Olbermann (@KeithOlbermann) says you can’t read anyway

    Olbermann

    Again, I’m not sure why I’ve continued typing in this space when Keith Olbermann says Philadelphia Flyers fans are illiterate. A man a plan a canal panama. Have you seen this column written by a dog? It’s pretty good. More insightful than anything on Olbermann’s show. But Flyers fans can’t read it. Blah blah blah…

  5. Cliff Lee struck out 13 Braves but Julio Teheran was filthier

    Cliff Lee, Evan Gattis

    You probably don’t want to watch the above “highlight” video from last night’s 1-0 loss to the Braves. It’s basically Julio Teheran manhandling the Phillies. Put it this way, when a Ryan Howard infield single is one of the highlights of the Phils’ night at the plate, it was not a pretty night. Cliff Lee…

  6. Union have real chance to make it hurt for rival Red Bulls tonight

    Apr 16, 2014, 3:35 PM EDT

    The Union's Leo Fernandes, left, and Maurice Edu,  right, congratulate teammate Andrew Wenger (9) who scored during the second half against Real Salt Lake at PPL Park last Saturday.

    First thing’s first: Because of the Sixers and Phillies, the Philadelphia Union game tonight against the rival New York Red Bulls is on something called WACP TV-4 (7:30 p.m).  It sounds like a channel you probably don’t get, but you definitely do:* *UPDATE: Apparently the game is also on The Comcast Network, which I was…

  7. Interesting theory on Jake Voracek’s new dyed playoff beard

    The NHL playoffs are back tomorrow and with them come the annual tradition of attempting to put Gillette and the Dollar Shave Club out of business. Much of the buzz at Flyers practice this morning — aside from Ray Emery being the guy in net tomorrow night — was about Jake Voracek’s beard. He’s had…

  8. ‘Duck Dynasty’ can actually cheer up a pitcher who gave up back-to-back-to-back jacks

    B.J. Rosenberg accomplished the uber rare feat of facing three batters on Monday evening and allowing each of them to deposit a ball in the outfield seats. That does not happen everyday. So how did Rosenberg cope with being one of the goats in the Phillies loss? The Inquirer’s Matt Gelb put on his reporting…

  9. Mason out: Ray Emery is your Flyers goaltender to begin the playoffs

    Steve Mason will NOT play tomorrow. — Sarah Baicker (@sbaickerCSN) April 16, 2014 Ray Emery on starting Game 1 against the Rangers: “I’m excited about it. I feel like I can do well.” #FlyersTalk — Sarah Baicker (@sbaickerCSN) April 16, 2014 Steve Mason was not at the Flyers practice facility this morning over in New…

  10. 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…

  11. Andrew MacDonald’s contract pays him in the top how many NHL players?

    Blackhawks Flyers Hockey

    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,…

  12. 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.…
