All-Bearded Team

Jayson Werth has given me inspiration.

2009 Phillies Moment #1

In Game 4 of the NLCS, the Phillies were down to their final two outs, and it looked like the Dodgers might even up the series at 2 games apiece.  Matt Stairs led the rally with a walk, and then Carlos Ruiz was hit by a pitch to put the go-ahead run on base.  Greg … Continue reading 2009 Phillies Moment #1

Eric Bruntlett. Two words that make Phillies fans cringe. On August 23rd though, he made history. Not just Phillies history, baseball history. Only fifteen times has an unassisted triple play occurred, and only twice has it ended a game. Eric Bruntlett is now part of that group. As much as we all like to pile … Continue reading 2009 Phillies Moment #8: Bruntlett’s Unassisted Triple Play

Castro Is Phillies Answer for Utility

Not the best answer in my opinion but it is what it is. The Phillies agreed to sign Juan Castro to replace the utility role Eric Bruntlett left. They have agreed to a one-year deal worth under $1 million with Castro, who hit .277 with one home run and nine RBIs in 112 at-bats last season … Continue reading Castro Is Phillies Answer for Utility

The Phillies have a lot of work ahead of them this off season. With only 12 players locked on for next year, not including arbitration eligible players like Shane Victorino, Clay Condrey, and Joe Blanton, the Phillies will look to bolster their bench and bull pen. In his article yesterday, David Murphy of the Philadelphia Inquirer … Continue reading Murphy Talks About Bench Options

Bruntlett Leads Players Dropped

The Eric Bruntlett era is over. The Phillies parted ways with their utility man after his two-year stay. Hated by many, I loved his passion and his role as a good team mate and classy guy. We will never forget his unassisted triple play or him sliding home on Carlos Ruiz’s game-winning infield single in … Continue reading Bruntlett Leads Players Dropped
