Pedro to Debut Wednesday; Moyer to Bull Pen

Hallelujah! Pedro Martinez will make his 2009 debut with the Phillies on Wednesday. To make room for him in the rotation, Jamie Moyer was informed that he will be put in the bull pen.

Rotation Battle Pt. 2

The Phillies are in a dilemma that most teams dreamed they were in. They will soon have six very capable starting pitchers once Pedro Martinez is ready. But who will go when he is ready? The Phillies already said that they didn’t sign Martinez to pitch in the bull pen. So he is almost locked … Continue reading Rotation Battle Pt. 2

Another Series Win in the Books

The Phillies are red hot despite having their 10-game winning streak busted today by Chicago.

Monday – … Continue reading Another Series Win in the Books

Phillies Lose 4th Straight Series

This day totally sucked (outside of my softball team kicking some serious butt to go 7-0). We lost the King of Pop and Ferrah Fawcett and now the Phillies lost their fourth straight series. They are just “Bad.” They’re no “Thriller” on the field. This skid is starting to get “Dangerous” as the Mets won … Continue reading Phillies Lose 4th Straight Series

Phils Offense Comes Alive to Split Series

After failing to score more than three runs in the first three games of the series, the Phillies offense powered its way past the Dodgers last night to split the four-game series. After winning the first game, Brad Lidge blew the next two games, wasting good starts by Joe Blanton and Jamie Moyer. In the … Continue reading Phils Offense Comes Alive to Split Series

Mayberry Jr. Called Up

John Mayberry Jr. was brought up to the Phillies last night from AAA Lehigh Valley. They will send Sergio Escalona back down to AAA. Mayberry was hitting .277 with 8 HR and 25 RBI for the Iron Pigs this season. This is great news. He should be starting today and tomorrow. As a right handed … Continue reading Mayberry Jr. Called Up

Phillies Visit Obama

The Phillies made their visit to the White House today before their game against the Nationals. They were scheduled to meet President Barack Obama last month but after the unfortunate death of Harry Kalas, they had to cancel. They presented the president with a #44 jersey with the gold trim from Opening Night, signifying him … Continue reading Phillies Visit Obama
