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

    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 […]

    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 […]

    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

    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

    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

    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 […]
