2009 Phillies Moment #4: July 11 Comeback

After the top of the ninth inning, the Phillies trailed 7-3, when pinch hitter Matt Stairs was sent up to face Pirates reliever Matt Capps.  He promptly greeted Capps with a home run.  Still down 3, the Phils refused to quit.  Jimmy Rollins walked and then stole second base.  Chase Utley then sliced a single, moving Rollins … Continue reading 2009 Phillies Moment #4: July 11 Comeback

PRC: Paul Bako

Player: Paul Bako Number: 23 Position: C Bats/Throws: L/R Consistency: Bako joined the team in June after Chris Coste got put on waivers and picked up by Houston. Bako was alright as a back-up. He had a real strong end of the season which could help him get picked up by a different team. Regular … Continue reading PRC: Paul Bako

Phillies Sign C Schneider

In an act of revenge for the Chris Coste signing (not really), the Phillies signed former Mets catcher Brian Schneider to a 2-year deal worth about $3 million. The left-handed Schneider hit .218 last season in 59 games with the New York Mets, but hit .382 (13-for-34) in his final 13 games. He missed 41 … Continue reading Phillies Sign C Schneider

Murphy Talks About Bench Options

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

Off Season News 11/10/09

According to Todd Zolecki via Twitter: Pedro Feliz, Chan Ho Park, Matt Stairs and Paul Bako officially filed for free agency today.

As for Stairs and Bako, I think Bako would be … Continue reading Off Season News 11/10/09

Phils Earn Split; Eliminate Fish

It was another rough series for the Phillies. It showed that they still have problems in the bull pen with Tyler Walker surrendering a walk off homer and Ryan Madson almost blowing a save today. The Phillies are still trying to find a reliable arm to finish off games. One big problem has been pitching … Continue reading Phils Earn Split; Eliminate Fish

Plundered By Pirates

After exploding versus the Mets, the offense basically died down minus a few spurts versus Pittsburgh. Another problem that needs to be corrected before the season ends is the bull pen. Brad Lidge blew another save in the first game and Ryan Madson even followed that up with one the next game, erasing a great … Continue reading Plundered By Pirates

Back On Track

The Phillies got back to work, especially after losing five of their last six. They had two of their best pitchers this year throwing during the series. Jamie Moyer was the same old and JA Happ and Cliff Lee both dominated the Rockies as the Phillies took two of three in the series. The rookie … Continue reading Back On Track

Another Series Win in the Books

The Phillies are red hot despite having their 10-game winning streak busted today by Chicago. They seemed a bit fatigued after playing a three hour and forty minute game last night that went 13 innings. The Phillies have still won 14 of their last 16 and are running away in the NL East. Monday – … Continue reading Another Series Win in the Books
