Domonic Brown

  1. 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…

  2. Cole Hamels, Cliff Lee, Dom Brown all available for trade apparently

    Dec 10, 2013, 1:00 PM EDT

    Word out of Major League Baseball’s winter meetings is no piece is untouchable for the Philadelphia Phillies right now, including the aces up general manager Ruben Amaro Jr.’s sleeve. Buster Olney for ESPN reports the Phillies would be open to trading either Cole Hamels or Cliff Lee, two of the three highest-paid players on the…

  3. Report: Phils talking to Toronto about Dom Brown for Jose Bautista swap

    While the Phillies appear to be targeting midlevel free agents this offseason by most accounts, Ruben Amaro Jr. always has an ace up his sleeve. Or it might be the two of spades. There is most definitely a something up there though. Hopefully it’s a face card at least? Turns out it might be one…

  4. Dom Brown changes his tune: ‘I know the Philly fans love me’

    Oct 22, 2013, 2:32 PM EDT

    dom-cowboys

    Domonic Brown caught some flak this week after Tweeting a photo of himself wearing a Cowboys jersey at the Linc on Sunday. He seemingly made matters worse by replying to fans with pouty statements such as, “Philly doesn’t love me,” and intimating he wouldn’t mind being traded. So Dom went on 97.5 The Fanatic on…

  5. Dom Brown wears Cowboys jersey to the Linc, pouts over backlash

    Oct 21, 2013, 2:47 PM EDT

    dom-cowboys

    The fact that Domonic Brown is a Cowboys fan isn’t a big deal. Sure, Phillies fans may find it distasteful, but most rational people understand professional athletes come from all over the place and have their own rooting interests. Keep showing up for work every day, don’t rub it in, and nobody would even notice…

  6. The 20 happiest memories from a Phillies season mostly worth forgetting

    Domonic Brown

    And so the Phillies finish the 2013 MLB season with a 73-89 record, seventh worst in the NL, and a league-worst run differential that suggests they were somehow actually far crappier than even their miserable record would suggest. Hope that this team would end up as any more than this faded quickly after the All-Star…

  7. These Still Frames of Home Plate Collision Give New Meaning to the Term ‘Dom Bomb’

    Sep 17, 2013, 3:08 PM EDT

    dom-bomb-f

    Somewhat lost amid Cliff Lee’s masterful execution on the baseball diamond in Monday night’s 12-2 victory was the vicious collision at home plate between Domonic Brown and Marlins catcher Jeff Mathis. Advantage: Dom. Brown dropped his shoulder heading into home and absolutely obliterated Mathis on this play in the third inning, leaving his feet as…

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

    Sep 9, 2013, 1:05 PM EDT

    Dom.Brown

    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…

  9. Phillies Come From Behind, Walk It Off Again, Then Cliff Lee Falls Down

    Aug 23, 2013, 6:30 AM EDT

    cliff-down

    This is starting to feel like a subplot from the film Mr. 3000. T-Rex Pennebaker gets a dysfunctional Brewers locker room to rally around a chase for third place. Just that one specific part of the movie though. Obviously I don’t think Ruben Amaro is interested in having Ryne Sandberg come out of retirement to…

  10. 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…

  11. Darin Ruf Thought Juan Samuel Was Joking About Playing RF Tonight

    ruf2

    Good news – well, maybe just news: Domonic Brown has been activated and returns to the Phillies’ lineup on Tuesday night for the first time sustaining a concussion on July 23. Due to Dom’s return, Darin Ruf’s reign of terror in left field will now end. Ruf’s reign of terror in right field on the…

  12. Matt Harvey Owns the Phillies

    Jul 22, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    matt-harvey

    How did the Phillies lose two of three in a series to the Mets, you ask? It’s almost not even fair when Matt Harvey gets to pitch one of those games. Harvey has started 30 games in the Major Leagues since his call-up last July, five of those against the Phils already – more than…

    MLB: All Star Game

    Three hits, one walk, zero runs. That was what the NL’s collection of offensive talent was able to put up against a wrecking crew of AL pitchers in the All-Star Game tonight, a feeble performance that at least prevented the game from stretching on past midnight. The AL didn’t provide a ton of offensive fireworks…

    After last night’s excellent appetite-whetting Home Run Derby, which resulted in a record-high number of Yoenis Cespedes-related discussions at office watercoolers nationwide, Citi Field tonight brings us the true Mid-Summer Classic. The stars are out, the stands are filling up, and social media is breathless with anticipation for a long night of complaining about Joe…

    MLB: All Star Game-Home Run Derby

    Well, hopefully even with our predictive spoilers, you were able to enjoy the best Home Run Derby in half a decade. Just as we called it, Yoenis Cespedes laid waste to the 2013 Home Run Derby, smacking a total of 32 home runs–and he could’ve probably hit a bunch more if that wasn’t all he…

    MLB: All Star Game-Home Run Derby

    We are here at Citi Field for the 2013 Home Run Derby. It’s hot and cramped and there are actually dudes wearing Lucas Duda and Andrew Brown jerseys, but the prospect of eventual HOME RUNS should make it all worthwhile. Domonic Brown is not present, because David Wright is a hater and because Virginia high…

  17. Dom Brown, Cliff Lee to Represent Phillies in 2013 All-Star Game

    Jul 6, 2013, 7:54 PM EDT

    dom-cliff

    The results are in, and there are no real surprises here. Major League Baseball announced the participants for the 2013 All-Star Game on Saturday, and while no Phillies were voted in by the fans, two were deemed worthy of inclusion on the National League roster. For Cliff Lee, this is nothing new. The 2008 American…

  18. Phillies Outlast Padres in 13 Innings Thanks to Unlikely Contributions

    Jun 27, 2013, 6:00 AM EDT

    slideshow-062613-phillies-team-uspresswire

    The Phillies might want to send Logan Forsythe a thank-you note. After all, the Padres’ second baseman did gift-wrap this game for them. Forsythe was charged not one, but two errors on the same play, allowing the Phils to score not one, but two go-ahead runs in the 13th inning. Jonathan Papelbon was able to…

    Jun 26, 2013, 2:08 AM EDT

    MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at San Diego Padres

    There was a point in the season when you felt pretty safe with the Phils leading 6-2 in the ninth inning, but that point certainly hasn’t been in the last week, with the Phils choking away leads in five of their last seven games, including a stunning four Jonathan Paplebon blown saves after previously going…

  20. Dom Brown Talks Haters, Hitters, Hunger in MLB Network Profile

    Jun 25, 2013, 3:26 PM EDT

    dommlb

    The Domonation has slowed down a little bit of late, with the Phils’ recently unquenchable left-fielder now on a 14-game homerless streak, his longest of the season. But Dom’s month-plus hot streak was so very hot that he’s still easily the Phils’ best hitter on the season, leading the team in hits, homers, runs and…

  21. Dom Brown Delivers With Ninth-Inning Walkoff, Makes Jonathan Papelbon Very Happy

    Jun 17, 2013, 10:57 PM EDT

    MLB: Washington Nationals at Philadelphia Phillies

    This one had “bummer” written all over it. The Phillies scrapped to a 4-2 lead through five, and Antonio Bastardo cleaned up a Mike Adams-induced eighth inning jam to get the ball to Jonathan Papelbon in the 9th with a one-run lead still in tact. Pap’s perfect season looked to remain in tact with an…

  22. Domonic Brown Heat Check: Cooling Off

    Jun 17, 2013, 1:01 PM EDT

    dom-bomb

    Is it any coincidence that quite possibly the biggest Phillies letdown this season yet coincides with the sudden disappearance of Dom Bombs? Don’t look now, but it’s been over a week since Domonic Brown last hit a home run, a stretch that just happened to fall right in the thick of the club’s 3-7 road…

  23. Dom Brown Is Not Doing Well in All-Star Voting, But That’s Okay

    Jun 10, 2013, 10:31 AM EDT

    dom-bomb

    Save your campaign buttons and catchy slogans for another year. Domonic Brown does not need our help getting to this season’s MLB All-Star Game in New York. For the second consecutive week, Brown failed to make the top three outfielders in All-Star voting for the National League. In fact, the league leader in home runs…

  24. Try As He Might, Domonic Brown Can’t Do It All By Himself

    Jun 8, 2013, 11:22 PM EDT

    brown-brews

    Domonic Brown heat check: still hot. The breakout season continued in Milwaukee on Saturday night, as Brown went 2-for-4 and drove in all three of the Phillies’ runs. Dom rocked a solo homer in the second inning to extend his National League lead to 19, then later shot a clutch two-run double into opposite field…

  25. Phils Get Back to .500, Cole Wins, Dom Homers, Everyone Happy Forever

    Dom Brown and Ryan Howard celebrate another Dom Bomb

    A dicey game for about six-and-a-half innings there–especially if you were squatting behind home plate–was redeemed in the seventh inning today when the Phils exploded for five runs, all with two outs, off Marlins reliever A.J. Ramos. The Phillies easily held on in the last two frames to get a 6-1 win that makes for…
