Dom Brown

  1. Hose Report: Turkey Bacon stood no chance at the plate

    Mar 5, 2014, 9:32 AM EDT


    Not a ton of interesting chatter coming out of Clearwater, Florida this week. The Phillies are back in action this afternoon after a loss last night. We’ve been a little lax on our hardball chatter, so let’s take a look… The Daily News’ Ryan Lawrence has an interesting look at prospect Roman Quinn and his…

  2. Noted Cowboys’ fan Dom Brown received a personalized Philadelphia Eagles jersey, says he’ll wear it

    Feb 15, 2014, 6:58 PM EDT


    The city of Philadelphia briefly pondered exiling Phillies outfielder Dom Brown after he tweeted a photo of himself at the Linc in a Cowboys jersey during an Eagles game. Alas, most of us just drank another beer and forgot about the whole thing a minute later. Not CSN/NBC’s John Clark, however. Clark is down in…

  3. The Phillie Phanatic will spend all spring in Clearwater for first time ever

    Jan 13, 2014, 2:17 PM EDT


    Don’t get confused. That was not a pregnancy announcement by Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Dom Brown and the Phillie Phanatic that was posted to Instagram this afternoon. It was a photo from Mexico — we assume on the team’s cruise vacation that fans can go on if they fork over some dough — illustrating that the…

  4. Cold water on the Jose Bautista and Dom Brown trade rumors

    Nov 13, 2013, 11:40 AM EDT


    It’s safe to take all Phillies rumors started by Howard Eskin with a bucket of salt, so it’s not surprising today to see a number of people who cover baseball nationally for a living shoot down the report last night that the Toronto Blue Jays were in talks with Ruben Amaro Jr. and the Philadelphia…

  5. Dom Brown Will Wear His Dallas Cowboys Jersey with Pride and Subsequently Laugh at Philly Fans Outrage

    Sep 9, 2013, 1:05 PM EDT


    The only time I really questioned a professional athlete wearing an opposing team’s jersey was that one time Terrell Owens wore a Michael Irvin Cowboys jersey while T.O. was still a member of the Philadelphia Eagles. That one seemed a bit weird in the etiquette department. But T.O. and proper etiquette never really seemed to…

  6. Domonic Brown Adopts Pitbull Puppy, Touches Our Hearts

    Aug 20, 2013, 1:50 PM EDT

    Photo from Green Street Animal Rescue

    It all started with Domonic Brown asking Twitter where he could find a new best friend. Now, thanks to Greene Street Animal Rescue, Brown has been united with an adorable pitbull puppy named Wreck (an homage to the 2013 season or just a happy coincidence?).  Sure, it’ll be a challenging time ahead, what with the…

  7. Photos: Dom Brown Gets a Pie to the Face After Walkoff Winner

    Jun 18, 2013, 9:35 AM EDT

    Domonic Brown

    Even in the midst of some pretty hard times for Phillies fans, a walkoff winner can still remind us why we tune in night after night to watch such a mediocre baseball team. Dom Brown coming through in the bottom of the ninth last night after Jonathan Papelbon blew his first save of the season…

  8. Shocker: Some People in Baseball Don’t Like Dom Brown’s ‘Weak Act’ Bat Flip and Choreographed High Five

    Jun 6, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Dom Brown and Ryan Howard celebrate another Dom Bomb

    Here’s a pop quiz for you. One of these four people is NOT OKAY with Dom Brown’s celebration after he hits home runs. See if you can guess which one it is: Ryan Howard A Baseball Scout Charlie Manuel Gary “Sarge” Matthews What’s your answer? Ding, ding, ding! You guessed it. A baseball scout is…

  9. Dom Brown’s Bat-flip Is to Ridiculous as Dom Brown’s Bat Is to Red Hot

    Jun 3, 2013, 10:39 PM EDT


    Dom Brown’s ridiculousness continued on Monday night when his redhot bat torched the Miami Marlins en route to a 7-2 Phillies victory. Brown went 3-4 on the evening with 2 RBI and a run scored. It was his killing of a baseball in the sixth that got Phillies fans out of their seat, however. Not…

  10. The Amazing Dom Brown Bat Flip GIF

    Jun 3, 2013, 12:24 PM EDT

    Dom Brown bat flip

    We’ve already written about his destruction of a baseball on Sunday and wondered aloud if Dom Brown can save the city of Philadelphia and its sports fans from a calendar year of misery, but our day of Dom is not complete without a GIF of his glorious bat flip after his mammoth home run yesterday.…

  11. Can Domonic Brown Save the Crappiest Philly Sports Year of the Century?

    Jun 3, 2013, 11:20 AM EDT

    Dom Brown high five

    You don’t need me or anyone else to tell you that there hasn’t been a lot to cheer for this year in the city of Brotherly Love. The NFL playoffs occurred without the 4-12 Eagles even qualifying as an afterthought, the much-anticipated seasons for the Flyers and Sixers both ended disastrously, and over a third…

  12. Video: Dom Brown Kills a Baseball… Again

    Jun 2, 2013, 8:06 PM EDT


    Here’s a bit of free advice for Major League pitchers: don’t walk the batter in front of Domonic Brown right now, even when it’s Ryan Howard. Mike Fiers learned the hard way on Sunday. After surrendering a two-out double to Jimmy Rollins then putting Howard on in the first inning, the right-hander fell behind to…

  13. Dom Brown and the List of Players Who Hit 12 HR in a Month at His Age

    Jun 1, 2013, 12:17 PM EDT


    Hey, know who we like talking about? Domonic Brown. Because even when the Phillies lose to a lousy team like the Brewers, that guy gives us a reason to watch, belting two more home runs to bump his total to 12 for the month of May. Know who else has hit at least 12 home…

  14. We Need to Decide on a Nickname for Domonic Brown

    May 31, 2013, 12:56 PM EDT

    MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at New York Mets

    The final numbers are nearly in for Domonic Brown’s month of May, and boy are they sure pretty. He’s gone 31-105 with ten homers and 21 RBI for the month, finishing with a final slash line of .295/.295/.638. If you ignore that the first two numbers in that slash line are the same, meaning that…

  15. Utley on Dom: ‘He’s a worker.’ Plus, Did Ruben Amaro Admit a Mistake?

    May 31, 2013, 11:09 AM EDT


    Any article that starts off with Chase Utley praising another Phillie’s work ethic is bound to be worth a read. Okay, so Ryan Lawrence’s profile of Dom Brown in this morning’s Daily News starts off with some Eagles-Beat-Writer-Shazamage stuff, but then it quickly gets to the Utley goods. “He’s strong, he’s got a great lean…

  16. Where Does Dom Brown Go From Here?

    May 30, 2013, 2:48 PM EDT

    Erik Kratz and Dom Brown go BOOM - 05/29/13

    Is the secret out on Domonic Brown yet? You would think so since he was named Player of the Week and moved into a second-place tie with 13 home runs in the National League, yet his fireworks display in the Phillies’ 4-3 win against the Red Sox on Wednesday still could have gone overlooked around…

  17. Phils Win, Dom Brown Tells Me Twice More to STFU

    May 29, 2013, 11:40 PM EDT

    Erik Kratz and Dom Brown go BOOM - 05/29/13

    Holy crap, Domonic Mordecai Brown. (His actual middle name is Larun, but I prefer Mordecai.) This guy is having a month for the history books, and in the process, he’s making the Phillies must-watch TV again, for the first time since they were actually, y’know, winning games. DomBro went yard twice tonight against the Boston…

  18. Your NL Player of the Week, Domonic Brown, Hasn’t Walked All Month

    May 28, 2013, 4:43 PM EDT


    It seems Ruben Amaro isn’t the only one who doesn’t care about walks. Domonic Brown is your National League Player of the Week because he’s raked of late, hitting .348 in 23 at-bats with two home runs, seven RBI and five extra-base hits in six games. He hasn’t only been walk-less during the judgment period in…

  19. Why Not Move Dom Brown Up in the Order?

    May 28, 2013, 1:59 PM EDT

    Dom Brown goes yard in Boston

    Domonic Brown bears the closest semblance to competence at the plate on the Phillies. So yeah, with injuries to Chase Utley and Carlos Ruiz leaving the lineup in indefinite flux, it’s at least worth considering bumping Brown closer to the top of the order to snag him a few more at-bats, right? Maybe not. Said Charlie…

  20. Phils Win: Your Latest Picture of Jonathan Papelbon Screaming, an Encouraging Jonathan Pettibone Stat, and Some Dom Brown

    May 25, 2013, 11:48 PM EDT


    The Philadelphia Phillies are now just one game below .500 following a 5-3 win over the Nationals on Saturday night. And for three hours, they even resembled a functional ball club. Jonathan Pettibone lasted six innings, the offense didn’t strand runners, scoring five runs on only six hits, and the bullpen got through two innings…

  21. Is Domonic Brown Having a Good Year or Not?

    May 23, 2013, 12:53 PM EDT

    MLB: Miami Marlins at Philadelphia Phillies

    Even if the Phils ended up a .500 team or worse this season, I think I could be pretty OK with that if I was convinced by year end that Domonic Brown was gonna be a really good player for years to come. Talking to my dad about Dom recently, he hit the nail on…

  22. Video: Ball Hawks Battle for Dom Brown’s Wet Home Run Ball in McCovey Cove

    May 7, 2013, 2:07 AM EDT


    Cliff Lee was stupendous on Monday night in San Francisco, commanding the strike zone with pinpoint accuracy. His final line may show a couple of earned runs, but the homer he gave up to Hunter Pence should have been a strikeout for sure. The homeplate ump cleaaaarly missed a would-be third strike and Lee barely…

  23. Dom Brown’s Home Run Left the Yard In Remarkable Fashion

    May 3, 2013, 10:43 AM EDT

    Dom Brown ripped a rope last night that looked like it didn’t have a chance of leaving the yard. It wasn’t that he didn’t get enough of it, because he laced that ball. It just didn’t look like it had enough elevation. Alas, he hit it so hard it found it’s way over the fence in ridiculously quick fashion. In fact, it was the quickest home run from bat to crowd in all of baseball this year according to ESPN’s stats people.

  24. Five Encouraging Parts of the Phillies’ Sweep of the Mets This Weekend

    Apr 29, 2013, 11:21 AM EDT

    We’ve gotten so used to crappy development after crappy development with our teams this past year that it’s almost unsettling when something unreservedly positive happens with one of them. But in case you were too busy this weekend watching game film on Matt Barkley or celebrating the historic demise of the Lakers and Celtics, the…

  25. GIF: Dom Brown and Ryan Howard’s Celebratory Bow After Second-deck Home Run

    Apr 11, 2013, 1:51 AM EDT

    Dom Brown absolutely annihilated another baseball on Wednesday night. More on that and the Phillies victory over the Mets last night in South Philadelphia here.

    But let’s talk about Ryan Howard and Dom Brown’s new celebratory high five and bow routine for a second. Do you dig it? I’m not sure Larry David would be impressed.
