Former Phils on the Move

Well it looks like some of the key parts to both World Series runs have found new homes this offseason. After Chris Coste went to the Mets, Pedro Feliz to Houston, and Scott Eyre retired, the Phillies saw two more guys leave for not-so-greener pastures. Brett Myers just signed with the Houston Astros today, another former Phillie Ed Wade … Continue reading Former Phils on the Move

Mets Interested in Pedro

I don’t know who is crazier: Pedro Martinez thinking he is worth $7.5MM or the Mets for considering him as a pitching option for 2010. Though the Mets are interested in Martinez, they do not feel he is worth that price. He would join Chris Coste as the second recycled Phillie to join the Mets. … Continue reading Mets Interested in Pedro

PRC: Paul Bako

Player: Paul Bako Number: 23 Position: C Bats/Throws: L/R Consistency: Bako joined the team in June after Chris Coste got put on waivers and picked up by Houston. Bako was alright as a back-up.

In All Star news, Jayson Werth replaced Carlos Beltran in the NL outfield. The Phillies became the 13th team to field … Continue reading Ibanez Back; Coste to ‘Stros; Werth an All Star

Manuel’s Odd Lineup

Charlie Manuel did a little bit of a line up shake up but not the one I was hoping for. As I stated in my other post, I wanted to see Jimmy Rollins drop down to sixth. After Todd Zolecki posted today’s line up versus Tampa Bay, I was left a bit confused. Here are … Continue reading Manuel’s Odd Lineup

Phils Win Big Today (Recap); Lose Series

I just got home from the Phillies/Red Sox game today. What a thrilling win as I got to see the Phillies beat the Sox for the first time in three games I’ve gone to. The Phillies looked so lost until they exploded for four run in the fifth inning and then poured on six more … Continue reading Phils Win Big Today (Recap); Lose Series
