2010 Moment: #1 The Perfect Game

The Phillies offense was in a rut. So what could Roy Halladay do? Be perfect. At a time when runs were hard to come by, the Phillies’ Roy Halladay needed only one run to best the Marlins, throwing the 20th perfect game in the Major League history. The image of third baseman Juan Castro fielding … Continue reading 2010 Moment: #1 The Perfect Game

2010 Moment: #2 Welcome home, Cliff

It’s the most recent of the top 10 and it was one of the highest moments of a disappointing 2010 that did not end in a championship. The Phillies were the “mystery team” in the hunt for Lee, offering less money and years and using their charm to pull Lee away from the Rangers and … Continue reading 2010 Moment: #2 Welcome home, Cliff

2010 Moment: #3 Welcome to Doctober

Only one other person in Major League history has thrown a no-hitter in the post season: Don Larsen’s 1956 perfect game in the World Series against the Brooklyn Dodgers. Wednesday, October 6, 2010 will go down as one of the most memorable days for Roy Halladay. Not only did Halladay no-hit the Cincinnati Reds, the … Continue reading 2010 Moment: #3 Welcome to Doctober

2010 Moment: #4 Another Miracle v. Cincy

As I was making the list of 15, including the honorable mentions, I realized that four of the moments came against the Reds. This moment is one of the early turning points of the season. Heading into the All-Star break, the Phillies were struggling with health and the bats. The game prior to this, Brian … Continue reading 2010 Moment: #4 Another Miracle v. Cincy

2010 Moment: #5 Now batting, left fielder… Roy Oswalt!

You can thank Scott Berry and a very PO’ed Ryan Howard for this moment. This whole August 24th meeting between the Phillies and Houston Astros was just a weird one. A month after being traded from his life time team in Houston to the Philies, Roy Oswalt was set to face his former team. But … Continue reading 2010 Moment: #5 Now batting, left fielder… Roy Oswalt!

2010 Moment: Honorable Mentions

In every great winning season, you had to know that there were more than just 10 great moments. The list is halfway complete and as it winds down, the top seems to be more and more obvious. A couple of these moments were suggested by you guys on Twitter but they just couldn’t crack my … Continue reading 2010 Moment: Honorable Mentions

2010 Moment: #6 Broxton Meltdown Part III

To the Phillies fans, it was a game to remember. For Dodgers closer Jonathan Broxton, it was a night from hell. First there was Matt Stairs, who crushed the go-ahead homer in Game 4 of the 2008 NLCS in Los Angeles off Broxton that eventually helped them win the series. Then in Game 4 of … Continue reading 2010 Moment: #6 Broxton Meltdown Part III

2010 Moment: #7 Hot as Cole

Roy Halladay pitched a no-hitter in game one of the NLDS against the Cincinnati Reds. Roy Oswalt followed up with a less-than-stellar performance in which the Phillies bull pen out-pitched Cincy’s in game two. With the Phillies holding a 2-0 series lead, it was up to Cole Hamels to shut the door on Cincinnati in … Continue reading 2010 Moment: #7 Hot as Cole

2010 Moment: #8 Moyer’s Historic Night

Let’s face it: 47 is old. But for one night, Jamie Moyer felt young again. Moyer became the oldest pitcher in Major League history to record a complete game shut out when he blanked the Atlanta Braves through nine, 7-0. He broke Braves great Phil Niekro’s record of over 46-years old in 1985. He was … Continue reading 2010 Moment: #8 Moyer’s Historic Night

2010 Moment: #9 “Don’t tase me, bro!”

I really don’t condone running on the field. In fact, I think this kid deserved what he got. So rather than remembering the moment for the kid, I’m going to remember moment #9 as the Philadelphia Police doing the right thing and zapping this clown. Taser Bro, as we refer to him, was a huge … Continue reading 2010 Moment: #9 “Don’t tase me, bro!”
