  1. Papelbon peeved at positioning pertaining to potential game-ending play (The Phils lost again).

    Jonathan Papelbon

    Two issues with last night’s walkoff loss in Texas, the second night in a row the Phillies came up on the short end of a walkoff. The first issue is obviously Jonathan Papelbon. Putting inflated salary aside, he’s simply nothing close to resembling a shutdown closer to finish last season and begin the 2014 campaign.…

    Pat Burre BP Home Run 1

    Pat Burrell popped up on the blog yesterday due to the continuing legacy he’s created off the field when it comes to the ladies, but the Bat can still bash. He still has it at the dish as well. CSN Bay Area posted the above clip of Burrell, currently a scout for the San Francisco…

    “ Pat Burrell is still out working for the San Francisco Giants as a “special assignment scout” and assistant to general manager Brian Sabean which means as part of his current job description he will occasionally drop by local sports talk radio stations. And sometimes the radio hosts he’s speaking with will ask him perfect…

    A month ago the Flyers were a pretty longshot to win the 2014 Stanley Cup with oddsmakers giving them a 33/1 chance of a parade heading down Broad Street this summer. A red hot month of March later, one that included wins over the Penguins, Blackhawks, Blues, Stars, Kings, basically some of the best teams…

    The dedicated Union fan group that you hear banging their drums and singing throughout entire Philadelphia Union games down in Chester are being rewarded for their efforts in the best way possible: in the form of beer. According to an email that went out to all Sons of Ben members today, they’re getting a brew…

    A look at the Philadelphia Flyers’ 1-0 shootout loss to the Western Conference-leading St. Louis Blues on Tuesday night at Scottrade Center in St. Louis through the perspective of three players who had an impact on the game.   Much like this past Sunday’s contest with the visiting Boston Bruins, that was one heck of…

  8. The Ben Revere pick-off play that probably cost the Phillies a win

    Apr 2, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    6-5-13-davidson-revere-AP

    Lots of talk about managerial decisions after the Philadelphia Phillies’ 3-2 walk-off loss to the Texas Rangers on Tuesday. Ryne Sandberg left Cody Asche and Domonic Brown out of the lineup altogether in favor of righty vs. lefty matchups. The Phils skipper then proceeded to fail to pinch hit accordingly in opposite scenarios later on,…

  9. DeSean Jackson agrees to deal with Washington

    Apr 2, 2014, 1:27 AM EDT

    DeSean Jackson, LaRon Landry

    Well, this was just about the worst possible turn of events, now wasn’t it? Four days after the Philadelphia Eagles released DeSean Jackson, he winds up back in the NFC East, agreeing to terms with divisional rival Washington. That means we’ll be seeing plenty of Jackson for the foreseeable future—at least two times in 2014,…

  10. Cody Asche, Dom Brown not in lineup for Game 2 at Texas

    Apr 1, 2014, 4:33 PM EDT

    Cody Asche, Domonic Brown, Kevin Frandsen

    All Cody Asche did on Opening Day was get on base in four of five at bats, cross the plate four times and drive in two runs in the Philadelphia Phillies’ 14-10 win over the Texas Rangers. Apparently, all he’ll be doing in the Game 2 of the series is watching from the dugout, at…

  11. Replacing DeSean: I see you, Darren Sproles

    Apr 1, 2014, 3:15 PM EDT

    Darren Sproles

    82 receptions, 1,332 yards receiving, nine touchdowns; that’s what the Philadelphia Eagles must replace in the NFL’s No. 2 offense after the release of DeSean Jackson. Where’s it supposed to come from? Not necessarily from any one player. In this four part series, we examine whose roles will increase as a result of the move.…

  12. Photo: The Eagles are removing the giant DeSean Jackson banner on side of Linc [UPDATE]

    That was fast. As you can see in the above photo, the Eagles have already removed the giant DeSean Jackson billboard/banner that hung on the side of Lincoln Financial Field. Here’s our post when it first went up when McNabb left town. The Eagles like to make the banner art somewhat ambiguous as not to…
