Domonic Brown

  1. Is Domonic Brown a Marked Man Tonight?

    Jun 4, 2013, 6:05 PM EDT


    It’s safe to say we’ve all been getting a kick out of Domonic Brown’s unreal offensive explosion, but you get a sense that these bat-flip celebrations are getting a little out of control. And where was he even running here? That turn was either tractor-trailer wide, or the umpires are now letting him run right…

  2. 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…

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

    Jun 3, 2013, 5:40 PM EDT


    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…

  4. The Amazing Dom Brown Bat Flip GIF

    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.…

  5. 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…

  6. 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…

  7. 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…

  8. 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…

  9. 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…

  10. Domonic Brown Will Only Need to Wait Four Batters Before Homering Off a First-Time Starter Tonight

    “Move Domonic Brown up in the batting order!” you demanded, and your comments did not fall on deaf ears–Ryan Howard heard your cries, and will be heroically sitting out with a “sore knee” in order to give our young masher a chance to do his damange one spot higher in the lineup tonight, and we…

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. Hide the Lefties: Ryan Howard, Dom Brown Sitting as Phillies Go for Sweep

    May 8, 2013, 3:34 PM EDT


    It might seem like an inopportune time for Charlie Manuel to give Ryan Howard and Domonic Brown the day off. Between the two of them, they’ve swatted six home runs in the month of May already. With that in mind – not to mention the Phillies are going for a sweep of the reigning World…

  17. 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…

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 100 MPH Fastballs Are No Match for Dom Brown, Says Dom Brown

    Mar 21, 2013, 5:02 PM EDT

    Basically, at this point, we’re just hoping the Spring of Dom turns into the Summer of Dom.

    Jim Salisbury has another good piece today on the confidence the Phillies young slugger has built up this spring. Not even a 100 mph fastball intimidates him.

  21. That Time Charlie Manuel Compared Dom Brown to a Horse

    Mar 16, 2013, 5:15 PM EDT

    Dom Brown killed another baseball on Saturday against the New York Yankees down in Florida. It was his fourth home run of the spring. Brown’s work at the plate has put him in the front of Charlie Manuel’s mind when it comes to this year’s starting right fielder.

  22. Dom Brown and Ryan Howard Continue to Kill Baseballs

    Mar 4, 2013, 10:17 AM EDT

    All obvious “it’s just spring training” caveats apply, but damn it if it’s not good to see Ryan Howard and Dom Brown swinging big bats down in Florida this spring. Brown and Howard have combined for six home runs and a couple of them are still traveling down Alligator Alley. They were back at it…

  23. Dom Browns Big Break? No Timetable for Delmon Young to Play

    Feb 15, 2013, 2:40 PM EDT

    When the Phillies acquired Delmon Young, Ruben Amaro Jr. all but grabbed the lineup card out of Charlie Manuel’s hand and wrote the 2012 ALCS MVP’s name in at right field himself. Domonic Brown may still have something to say about that though, especially while Young isn’t even able to get on the field. Reports…

  24. Dom Brown Shows Off His Hose By Gunning Down McCann at Second

    Aug 7, 2012, 10:39 PM EDT

    Dom Brown had another fantastic game for the Phillies on Tuesday night, helping them to a 3-0 win.

  25. Training Wheels Come Off for Dom Brown as Phils Continue in Washington

    Aug 1, 2012, 6:15 PM EDT

    Dom Brown makes his first start of the season in left field, as the Phillies take on the Washington Nationals.
