Rollins Does It His Way

It’s the kind of game that won Jimmy Rollins an MVP a few years ago. It’s also the kind of game the Phillies expect from their short stop every time when they put him in the lead-off slot. Rollins fell just a double shy of the cycle as he led the Phillies to an 8-2 … Continue reading Rollins Does It His Way

10 Things Wrong With the New York Mets

It’s all your fault, Andy Martino. The once Phillies beat writer for the Philadelphia Inquirer has turned into Benedict Arnold as a New York Post writer covering the Mets. One of his more recent columns hates on the Phightins for their, “swagger, arrogance, and condescension toward opponents.” What’s wrong with knowing your team has the … Continue reading 10 Things Wrong With the New York Mets

2010 Isn’t That Bad

By Dan MacNeal 2010 started with a lot of promise, coming off back-to-back World Series appearances and one championship.  Hopes were high for the 2010 Phillies, but halfway through the year, the team has struggled.

GM for the Day

Burrell Still Misses Us

I saw this on the Fightins.com and had to talk about it here. Pat Burrell, who endured nine years of Phillies baseball, still misses us. He talked about the fans the Phillies have and then talked about the Rays fans it seemed evident who he prefered. “I don’t know if there is any way of saying this … Continue reading Burrell Still Misses Us

Offseason 1/13/10

A few interesting things happened today. First let’s focus on the positive. Todd Zolecki named Jimmy Rollins his “Player of the Decade” today, and deservedly so. Of the logical choices, he was the only player to play for the Phillies all 10 years (was a rookie in 2000) and was one of two to win a NL MVP (2007). He led … Continue reading Offseason 1/13/10
