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: 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

Grading the Phillies: Bench

Ben Francisco – C+: His lack of playing time came as a surprise to fans this year, especially when Raul Ibanez had some early-season struggles. He’s the type of player who needs every day at-bats to heat up. It will be interesting to see what happens next season if the Phils don’t sign Jays Werth … Continue reading Grading the Phillies: Bench

Phils Cut Ties With Moyer, Dobbs

The Phillies let 47-year-old left-hander Jamie Moyer and pinch hitter Greg Dobbs test the free agency market, likely ending their terms in a Phillies uniform. After a season-ending elbow injury hit Moyer, who turns 48 next month, and two straight poor years at the plate for Dobbs, the Phillies took the next step of their … Continue reading Phils Cut Ties With Moyer, Dobbs

Kendrick was sturdy, allowing two runs on five hits and three walks in five innings of work. It will … Continue reading Phils Scalp Braves

And the Back Ups Will Play

The Phillies line up tonight will resemble something similar to a Spring Training line up… or a line up they had in June. Other than Jimmy Rollins making his first start in almost a month, Raul Ibanez, Chase Utley, and Ryan Howard, the Phils are starting some guys who have seen their fair share of … Continue reading And the Back Ups Will Play

Polly Has A Broken Elbow

UPDATE: Polanco’s elbow is not broken. The Dominican reporter mistook what Polanco said about his elbow when he told the reporter he had elbow bursitis. The rest of the details are still accurate in which it’s only an hour-long surgery that he will get done at the end of the season. It’s still a difficult … Continue reading Polly Has A Broken Elbow

Phils Call Up Three More

RHP Vance Worley, RHP Nate Robertson, and LHP Mike Zagurski have all been called up from Lehigh today. They join Paul Hoover, Greg Dobbs, and Scott Mathieson along with Ross Gload off the DL as the seven players so far to be added to the roster.

Utley Activated

The Phillies announced Tuesday that Chase Utley has been activated off the disabled list. To make room for Utley, Greg Dobbs was designated for assignment. Utley has been out since June 29th when he suffered a torn ligament in his right thumb. Utley made some rehab appearances in Clearwater over the weekend to prepare for … Continue reading Utley Activated
