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

    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 […]

    Roy Oswalt Has A Bulging What? (Video)

    With Roy Halladay, Cliff Lee and Cole Hamels playing so well, many of you may not have noticed that the fourth member of the Philadelphia Phillies “fantastic four” pitching rotation has been sidelined since June 24th.  That fourth member, Roy Oswalt, has been suffering from a bulging disk in his back, although, a slip of […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/28/11 — Cliff Lee

    Most Major League pitchers will not record three complete-game shutouts throughout the course of an entire season.  Cliff Lee had the opportunity to throw his third in a row last night when he took the mound against the Boston Red Sox.  Accomplishing such a feat is no easy task against the league’s most potent offense, […]

    Phillie Phanatic Hospitalized After Taking Foul Ball In The Neck (Video)

    When it comes to baseball mascots, the Phillie Phanatic is one of the best in the business, and he is also one of the toughest.  He proved the latter last night while working some overtime with the Phillies’ Triple-A affiliate, the Lehigh Valley IronPigs. While entertaining some fans behind the first base dugout during the […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 6/16/11 — Cliff Lee

    Most baseball fans expected the Philadelphia Phillies to dominate this season due in large part to their incredible starting rotation.  They have done just that, as they entered last night’s game against the Florida Marlins with a league-best 43-26 record and a six-game winning streak.  And thanks to a brilliant performance by starter Cliff Lee, […]

    Love was certainly in the air at Citizens Bank Park yesterday.  Maybe it was the joy of winning both games during a double-header against the Florida Marlins, or perhaps the folks working the concession stands were being extra generous while pouring the alcoholic beverages. Whatever the case may be, it was enough to get this […]

    Philly Phanatic Grinds It Out With A Heffer (Video)

    Sure, the Philly Phanatic might be fat, green and hairy, but he can do better than this, can’t he?  After all, the thing(?) is an icon in Philadelphia.  You would think it could get all the big-chested blondes it wanted.  I guess it only prefers those that look similar to its own kind. I wonder […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/31/11 — Danny Espinosa

    Entering last night’s game against the Philadelphia Phillies, the Washington Nationals had lost six straight against their division rivals.  They were looking to break out of that losing streak and they did so in a big way, thanks to the hot bat of Danny Espinosa. The Nats’ second baseman terrorized Phillies starter Cliff Lee to […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/19/11 — Jason Giambi

    It has been a while since Jason Giambi’s glory days with the New York Yankees and Oakland Athletics, but for those who are unaware, the 40-year-old is still kicking around the Majors with the Colorado Rockies, and it appears as though he still has some power left in that bat of his. With Todd Helton […]

    Picture Of The Day: Turtle Man Cheers For The Phillies

    Okay, so Turtle Man isn’t exactly cheering in this picture, but I’m sure he was at some point during the Philadelphia Phillies’ 7-4 victory over the Washington Nationals last night. This guy takes the early lead for “Stupidest Headwear of the Week” honors, but with the 137th running of the Kentucky Derby set to take […]

    Picture Of The Day: When Sports Takes A Back Seat

    After every New York Mets game this season, artist Joe Petruccio creates a new entry for his sketchbook that portrays what happened in the game.  Each entry can be seen on Joe’s website, called “My Mets Journal.”  His entry from last night’s game between the Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies makes it clear that sometimes […]

    A Robot Delivered The Opening Pitch At Today’s Phillies Game (Video)

    I thought I had seen it all after watching fisherman Dave Mercer cast his opening pitch at a Toronto Blue Jays game a few years ago. I was wrong. During today’s matinee game between the Milwaukee Brewers and the Philadelphia Phillies, a robot made by engineers from the University of Pennsylvania was assigned the task […]
