  1. Charlie Manuel: Roy Halladay Is “Coming Along Real Good”

    The Phillies are creating a bit of buzz once again with their latest stretch of good baseball, taking two of three from a pair of first-place teams, and the first two so far in a four-game series with the Washington Nationals. We’re still skeptical about a potential playoff run as we’ve seen this team go…

  2. These Stats Indicate the 2013 Phillies Are Pretty Much Done

    Charlie Manuel admitted after Sunday’s 8-0 loss to the Mets that even he’s now “wondering” whether or not his team can turn things around and make the playoffs. Well, if history is to be believed, there isn’t much to wonder about — other than who Ruben Amaro might be able to unload at the deadline.…

  3. Quotable: Charlie Manuel Wonders Just Like You If This Team Has a Run In Them

    A clobbering by the New York Mets in the series rubber match is not the way Charlie Manuel wanted his weekend to end. Alas, Matt Harvey dominated his offense and John Lannan’s day unraveled in one awful inning with no thanks to any help from Ben Revere or the umps. Manuel wasn’t sugar coating life…

  4. Charlie Manuel Will Do the [Expletive] Managing, Thank You Very Much

    If you think you’re fed up watching the Phillies, imagine how Charlie Manuel must feel. He has to watch this team and talk about this team that is now mired in a season-long five-game losing streak after a 4-3 loss in Minnesota on Wednesday night. The pressure might be finally starting to get to Fightins’…

  5. The Phillies’ Bullpen Is Still Terrible

    The Phillies lost 12 games that they led going into the eighth inning in 2012, which had they won even two-thirds of those would have been good enough to make the playoffs. So Ruben Amaro Jr. signed free agent Mike Adams, setup man extraordinaire, and checked one problem off of his list. Adams just picked…

  6. Quotable: Ben Revere’s One-Sided He Said-He Said with Umpire Bob Davidson

    If not for John Mayberry making baseball history in the 10th and 11th innings, the main storyline from Tuesday night’s 7-3 win could very well have been Bob Davidson’s interference call in the eighth inning. Davidson, the second base umpire, turned a fielder’s choice into a double play when he called Ben Revere out for…

  7. Video: Charlie Manuel Was Hoping Kyle Kendrick Would Eat Dirt When Sliding Head First

    Kyle Kendrick rips a triple

    Dom Brown continued to rip the cover off the ball. The guys around him in the lineup were feeding off Brown’s hot bat and contributing. And Kyle Kendrick was cruising after giving up a few early hits and the Phillies put a 7-2 smackdown on the Miami Marlins. You know what that means? A giddy…

  8. Wally Joyner Deserves Some Credit for Dom Brown’s Breakout Season

    How can a team that employs two hitting coaches – three if you include Phillies skipper Charlie Manuel – also have the 27th-ranked offense in Major League Baseball? There are no simple answers to that question, but we can confirm at least one of the instructors is making his presence felt in the lineup this…

  9. The Phillies Released ‘A Great Ambassador for Baseball’

    This is how Charlie Manuel described – and we can only presume will choose to remember – Chad Durbin after the Phillies dumped the 35-year-old reliever on Friday. Lord knows we’d all like to forget about the 9.00 ERA he is sporting this season. Adding and subtracting players is almost universally about improving the team,…

  10. Not Sure Why ‘Charlie Manuel’ Is Singing the Rolling Stones, But Here It Is

    Sometimes Joe Conklin’s bits on 94 WIP are pretty funny. Sometimes they’re not. Tends to be the way it goes when you’re making comedy bits about a topic as limited as Philly sports. Today on the morning show with Angelo Cataldi, Conklin did a bit as Charlie Manuel singing the Rolling Stones. Not entirely sure…

  11. About Time: Charlie Manuel Shakes Up the Batting Order in Boston

    Coming off of their tough series loss in our nation’s capital, the Phillies embark on the first part of a home-and-home of sorts against the Red Sox to close out the holiday weekend. In case you were wondering how the team would respond to its latest letdown, Charlie Manuel finally decided to try something different…

  12. Quotable: Charlie Manuel Doesn’t Believe Demotion Is The End for Phillippe Aumont

    May 23, 2013, 1:51 PM EDT

    aumont

    Philllippe Aumont made just four relief appearances over the past two weeks amid whispers he could be sent down to the minors. Aumont’s last two appearances didn’t help his cause, as the big righty got rocked in each, and on Wednesday it was finally reported he would report to Triple-A Lehigh Valley. While this has…

  13. Michael Young Is Posting Some Silly Numbers in 2013

    Let me preface this by admitting up front that I liked the addition of Michael Young to the Phillies during this offseason. The club had a hole at third base that the front office was able to fill temporarily with a seven-time All Star for the low-price of two minor-league relievers, while the Rangers are…
