Roy-Freshing: Oswalt K’s season-high 9 in win

Ryan Zimmerman punched the Phillies’ gut with a walk-off grand slam Friday night, but in typical Phillies fashion, they bounced back and took down the Nationals on, what I guess you could call ‘the road.’ It took until the fourth inning for a team to tally a run tonight’s game at Nationals Park, when Wilson … Continue reading Roy-Freshing: Oswalt K’s season-high 9 in win

Phillies Walkup Song Team

Walkup music, it’s become a pretty common topic among fans at the beginning of the season. Some players like to stick with the classics while others use today’s hottest songs. Music has become so subjective that there is no way possible each player in the line up would find their song on the same iPod … Continue reading Phillies Walkup Song Team

The Phillies are in debt. No, I’m not kidding.

The LA Times reported this morning that nine MLB teams, including the Phillies, are in violation of MLB’s debt service rules. While other teams on the list (Mets, Dodgers, Orioles, Rangers, Nationals, Marlins and Tigers) are not surprising, seeing the Cubs and Phillies on the list is quite a shocker.

Werth, Nats got Vance’d

Vance Worley, who looks like he could be straight out of “Major League” as Wild Thing Rick Vaughn, made quick work of the Nationals. Worley, making his second start in place of the injured Joe Blanton, pitched six innings, scattering a run and four hits while striking out seven in the Phillies 7-4 win. Worley … Continue reading Werth, Nats got Vance’d

But I thought Werth was cheered…

You knew not all 45,000-plus fans in attendance would welcome back the former Phillies right fielder. Some boos were scattered throughout the park when he was introduced in the line ups, his first at-bat and his first trip back to his old stomping grounds in right field. But a certain group of fans behind the … Continue reading But I thought Werth was cheered…
