Spankee’d

Roy Halladay was spanked mercilessly by the Yankees on Tuesday night. The veteran righty, who statistically was a Yankee killer, got roughed up for six runs as the Yankees won 8-3. C.C. Sabathia bested Doc with his strong seven-inning, three-run performance in which he sat-down seven Phillies. He only gave up five hits and three … Continue reading Spankee’d

5 Teams to Watch in the AL

Yankees – They’re the 2009 World Series champions and still kept intact the solid nucleus that got them there. They traded top prospects to land centerfielder Curtis Granderson, a much better defensive asset than Johnny Damon. They also traded Melky Cabrera to the Braves for Javier Vazquez to bolster the starting rotation. With guys like … Continue reading 5 Teams to Watch in the AL

Hamels Blasted; Phils Win

It was one of those games where both teams were thankful that their pitchers are still trying to work things out in Spring Training. Both Hamels and A.J. Burnett were knocked around in their starts. The Phillies came back from a 7-5 deficit to win 9-7 over the Yankees on Monday thanks to a two-run walk-off … Continue reading Hamels Blasted; Phils Win

An Infield Debate for the Ages

After the Phillies let go Pedro Feliz and signed Placido Polanco to fill his position at third, the Phillies found themselves with a complete infield. Almost too complete as a matter of fact. We have all heard the argument between Yankees and Phillies fans: Who has the better infield in baseball? Clearly both teams are heads and … Continue reading An Infield Debate for the Ages

Phils Stay Alive, Head Back to NY

For the Phillies, every game is a must win game. After taking the first game of the series, they fell three straight to the Yankees. After last night’s offensive outburst, the Phillies got back into this series, only trailing 3-2. The bats came alive and Cliff Lee pitched well enough to win as the Phillies … Continue reading Phils Stay Alive, Head Back to NY

Phils Fail at Comeback, Yanks Up 3-1

All Brad Lidge had to do was get Johnny Damon out. But he was resilient. Damon fought off every strike-two pitch by Lidge until he got the one he like. After his base hit and steal of second and third, Mark Teixeira walked and Alex Rodriguez drove in Damon to make it a 5-4 game. … Continue reading Phils Fail at Comeback, Yanks Up 3-1

Bats Falter, Series Tied

Runners on first and second for Chase Utley. The swing and a ground ball to Robinson Cano who flips to Derek Jeter and retires Utley to end the inning. The Phillies situational hitting from the regular season returned as they squandered numerous opportunities much like that one as they allow the Yankees to tie the … Continue reading Bats Falter, Series Tied

The Dream Match Up

This is when the blog gets personal. It’s when I put aside being objective and let you look through the eyes of a Phillies fan. Ever since I was a kid playing “Bases Loaded” for NES, “Roger Clemens Baseball” for Super NES, “All Star Baseball” for Game Boy, “Griffey Slugfest” for N64, and all the … Continue reading The Dream Match Up
