    Picture Of The Day: Philadelphia’s Teams Are Taking The Plunge

    The Philadelphia Flyers bowed out to the Boston Bruins in four games during last season’s playoffs and proceeded to trade away Mike Richards and Jeff Carter in the off-season.  The Philadelphia Phillies finished the 2011 MLB regular season with an incredible 102 wins, but were upset by the St. Louis Cardinals in the NLDS.  And […]

    13 Greatest Postseason Upsets In MLB History

    The last night of 2011 MLB season was perhaps the most thrilling five hours in the history of professional sports. Consequently, some people may have thought the 2011 MLB Postseason would be a letdown. But not us. We here at Total Pro Sports predicted this year’s playoffs would be thrilling, and so far they have […]

    Shane Victorino Brings Us This Outfield Blooper (GIF)

    Shane Victorino has won a Gold Glove Award in each of the last three seasons and he didn’t commit a single error all year in 2011, but you wouldn’t know it after watching him in center field during Game 4 of the NLDS last night. While many will be quick to blame the bright evening […]

    9 Reasons Why This Could Be The Best MLB Post-Season Ever

    The 2011 MLB playoffs kick off tonight, with the Texas Rangers hosting the Tampa Bay Rays followed by the New York Yankees hosting the Detroit Tigers. This year, however, the biggest question going into October isn’t so much, “who will win the World Series,” but instead, “is there any way the playoffs can be half […]

    Marlins’ Pitchers Trap Jose Ceda In The Bullpen Bathroom (Video)

    When the Florida Marlins’ pitchers decided to trap rookie pitcher Jose Ceda in the visiting bullpen’s bathroom at Citizens Bank Park last night, they probably thought that they had just executed one of the greatest prank in the history of baseball pranks.  What they failed to realize, however, was that the joke was on them.  […]

    Poncho + Wind = FAIL! (Video)

    Those clear ponchos can already be a pain in the rear to put on, but that pain grows even larger when one has to deal with violent winds while attempting to cover up from the rain. The winds around game time were approximately 30 mph in Philadelphia, and that was easily enough to make life […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 9/15/11 — Cliff Lee

    After taking the first game of their double-header against the Florida Marlins, the Philadelphia Phillies could only manage one run over the first nine innings of their second game.  However, that one run appeared as though it would be enough to earn the victory, as Cliff Lee cruised through the first 26 outs of the […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 9/14/11 — Roy Halladay

    The Philadelphia Phillies needed just one more win to clinch a playoff berth and what better man to have on the mound while they attempt to punch their ticket to October than Roy Halladay.  The Phillies’ ace entered the game in the top four in wins, strikeouts and ERA in the National League, and he […]

    The Phillie Phanatic Makes It Rain…Hot Dogs (Video)

    Treacherous rains were sweeping across areas in Indiana, Michigan and other parts of the United States over the weekend.  It was raining in Philadelphia as well, but rather than having water drops fall from the sky, as is typically the case when it rains, fans at Citizens Bank Park found themselves caught under a storm […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 8/30/11 — Roy Halladay

    We all know what Roy Halladay is capable of doing from the pitcher’s mound.  He entered last night’s game against the Cincinnati Reds with a 15-5 record and a 2.56 ERA, and he reminded us all once again why he is one of the best pitchers in the Majors, recording seven shutout innings of two-hit […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 8/9/11 — Cliff Lee

    It may be tough for Cliff Lee to replicate the incredible month he had in June (5-0, 0.21 ERA), but he appears to be on his way towards doing just that in August.  After pitching a complete-game shutout during his first start of the month, Lee was dominant once again last night when he took […]

    Phillies Bat Boy Takes A Spill (Video)

    I’m not sure what type of shoes the bat boys in Philadelphia usually wear, but the Phillies organization may want to consider getting them a decent pair of cleats.  That should help prevent any of them from blowing a tire and falling into Shane Victorino in the future. Thankfully, this was the only mishap for […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 8/4/11 — Cliff Lee

    It was a disappointing month of July for Cliff Lee, which saw the Phillies pitcher go 1-2 with a 4.91 ERA in five starts.  As he entered the month of August, he was looking to put July’s struggles behind him and regain the form that saw him go 5-0 with a 0.21 ERA in his […]
