    This 1-3-1 Put-Out By The Mets Is All Sorts of Awesome (Video)

    The New York Mets have been pretty awful for the past six years, and during that time they’ve provided us with some appropriately awful lowlights. However, this season they seemed to have turned things around, as they currently sit in first-place in the NL East with a 71-56 record—6.5 games clear of the second-place Washington […]

    Cole Hamels Throws No-Hitter vs. Cubs (Video)

    With everyone expecting the Philadelphia Phillies to trade Cole Hamels any day now, the left-handed starting pitcher did the team a huge favor and upped his trade value by no-hitting the Chicago Cubs on Saturday. Hamels needed 129 pitches to get through all nine innings, in which he allowed just two walks while striking out 13 […]

    Phillies Win! Papelbon is Tackling Teammates! (GIF)

    The Philadelphia Phillies beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5-4 Wednesday afternoon thanks to pinch-hitter Odubel Herrera‘s walk-off RBI single in the 10th inning. This made Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon a very happy man. So happy that he just wanted to tackle someone. So he did: #Walkoff at your own risk. http://t.co/4LY2PG5mvF pic.twitter.com/SB3XCXErCE — MLB (@MLB) […]

    During the New York Mets’ home opener against the Philadelphia Phillies at Citi Field earlier today, a Mets fan tried to throw his beer onto Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Grady Sizemore through the chainlink fence in right field.

    Miguel Cabrera Stole the Philly Phanatic’s Keys Yesterday (Video)

    In case you weren’t sure if the Philly Phanatic was a registered Pennsylvania driver, the answer is “yes.” Or so we were led to believe such, as the Philly Phanatic had his (its?) keys stolen by none other than legendary car thief Miguel Cabrera. In the interest of accuracy, we should probably mention that these were […]

    Marlon Byrd Somehow Managed to Break His Bat on a Swing-and-Miss (Video)

    Bats break all the time during Major League Baseball games, but not like this. It happened during yesterday afternoon’s NL East showdown between the New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies, as the Phils’ Marlon Byrd completely whiffed on a 1-0 pitch from Jonathon Niese, but was still somehow able to send three-quarters of his […]

  • This Day In Sports History (April 25th) — Phillie Phanatic

    This Day In Sports History (April 25th) — Phillie Phanatic

    It was on this day in 1978 that the Phillie Phanatic made his first ever appearance as the official mascot of the Philadelphia Phillies. The idea for the Phillie Phanatic was created by Dennis Lehman in 1977, as he felt the team needed to abandon “Philadelphia Phil” and “Philadelphia Phillis”, and replace them with a […]

    This Day In Sports History (October 21st) — Philadelphia Phillies

    It was on this day in 1980 that the Philadelphia Phillies defeated the Kansas City Royals 4-1 in Game 6 of the World Series.  The win gave Philadelphia their first World Series title in franchise history. The Phillies made it to the World Series by winning the National League East by one game over the […]

    Watch Phillies Manager Charlie Manuel Spit Out His Dentures (GIF)

    Just two years ago, the Philadelphia Phillies were arguably the best team in baseball with the starting pitching equivalent of Murderers Row and a fearsome lineup. There was no way, it was thought, that those guys wouldn’t win the World Series. But they didn’t win the World Series, two years in a row. After that, something […]

    This Day In Sports History (July 29th) — Steve Carlton

    It was on this day in 1989 that the Philadelphia Phillies retired the #32 formerly worn by Steve Carlton.  Carlton spent 15 seasons as a member of the Phillies and joined Richie Ashburn (#1), Jim Bunning (#14), Mike Schmidt (#20) and Robin Roberts (#36) as the only men to have their numbers retired by Philadelphia.

    Got Enough Sunscreen on Your Lips? (Video)

    It’s always sunny in Philadelphia, I’m told.  So if you’re heading out for an afternoon game at Citizen’s Bank Park, you’ll want to be prepared. Wear a hat, bring plenty of water, and apply that sunscreen liberally. Not too liberally, though. Just be sure to apply a nice even coat of SPF 50 or better. […]
