  1. Report: Phillies Targeting Three Teams for Possible Papelbon Trade

    Jun 17, 2013, 2:15 PM EDT


    The way things have been going on the field lately, doomsday doesn’t seem too far off in the horizon for the Phillies. Ruben Amaro Jr. is readying the button. According to a report by Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe, the Phillies have begun scouting the farm systems of three Major League teams that may…

  2. Cole Hamels Is the First Pitcher in the NL to 10 Losses This Season

    Jun 17, 2013, 7:00 AM EDT


    He hasn’t been as sharp in 2013 as we’ve come to expect, but Cole Hamels is pitching well enough to keep the Phillies in games. Sunday at Colorado was the 11th time in 15 starts this season where Hamels held the opponent to three earned runs or less. His line: three runs off of six…

  3. Quotable: Cliff Lee Just Wants to Win

    Jun 14, 2013, 10:33 AM EDT


    Cliff Lee was fantastic again on Thursday night as the Phillies finally snapped their losing skid in a 3-2 win over the Twins. Following the game, Lee was asked a number of questions about the state of the Phillies and whether he wants to stay here if things don’t turn around and into a real…

    After coming into last night’s ballgame 5-0 in his last six starts, Cliff Lee failed to hold a four-run lead when he allowed four runs on eight hits and three walks while striking out nine in 122 pitches. Jeremy Horst gave up the winning run in the ninth, and the Phillies lost, 5-4. Lee, who…

  5. Brewers Mount Comeback, Walk Off 5-4 Against Cliff Lee and Phils

    Jun 8, 2013, 12:01 AM EDT

    MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at Cleveland Indians

    It’s a lot easier to beat a team with both crappy pitching and crappy hitting, turns out. Milwaukee only has the latter of the two, and while the Phillies were able to scrape together four runs early off sub-starter Alfredo Figaro, they missed on a couple opportunities to add to their lead, and the Brewers…

  6. The Evster’s Top Six Reasons to Keep Cliff Lee

    Jun 7, 2013, 11:05 AM EDT


    Full disclosure: I have watched a grand total of five innings of Phillies baseball this year, and four of those innings were on Tuesday night. (I really like that Jeff Mayberry fella!) But despite my lack of viewing, I still follow what’s going on, am aware that Cliff Lee has been amazing, and am not…

  7. Cliff Lee Pretty Much Ready for Anything at Trade Deadline

    Jun 4, 2013, 11:45 AM EDT


    When Jon Paul Morosi of FOX Sports paid a visit to Citizens Bank Park on Friday for Phillies-Brewers Game 1 and didn’t much talk to Domonic Brown, you began to wonder why he bothered. Welp… Said Cliff Lee, when asked if he is prepared to be shipped out in, oh, 56 days: “Yeah, pretty much.…

  8. Cliff and Phils Look to Avoid Sweep Behind After Embarrassing Call Costs Them Game Two

    Jun 2, 2013, 11:53 AM EDT

    MLB: Milwaukee Brewers at Philadelphia Phillies

    That one hurt. The Phils were on the comeback trail against the Brewers in the 9th inning last night, with a leadoff Freddy Galvis solo shot cutting the lead to one, and Jimmy Rollins singling and a Ben Revere bunt getting us a man in scoring position with just one out. But with J-Roll sitting…

  9. Delmon Young a Five-Tool Player in Phillies Win

    May 23, 2013, 7:30 AM EDT


    Two days ago people were calling for an end to the Delmon Young experiment, or at least for Charlie to sit the guy down for a few days anyway. Now all of a sudden he’s a five-tool player, hitting bombs, tearing up the base paths, and patrolling the outfield. Young was a big reason why…

  10. Cliff Lee Makes Awful Base-running Blunder But Wears Awesome T-Shirt So Whatever

    May 19, 2013, 6:21 PM EDT


    Cliff Lee’s base-running blunder in the bottom of the ninth inning on Sunday could have cost the Phillies the game. It didn’t. And Erik Kratz and Freddy Galvis got Lee off the hook by bashing back-to-back home runs off of Aroldis Champman to propel the Phils to a series victory. [watch video of Lee’s base-running…
