5 Q’s Heading Into the Braves Series

This is a little something I will be doing when I feel that there are a few things to be addressed heading into a big series. First off, I want to say I am pleased with how well the offense has played to start the season and how amazing it really is to watch Roy … Continue reading 5 Q’s Heading Into the Braves Series

Mets Interested in Pedro

I don’t know who is crazier: Pedro Martinez thinking he is worth $7.5MM or the Mets for considering him as a pitching option for 2010. Though the Mets are interested in Martinez, they do not feel he is worth that price. He would join Chris Coste as the second recycled Phillie to join the Mets. … Continue reading Mets Interested in Pedro

PRC: Pedro Martinez

Player: Pedro Martinez Number: 45 Position: SP Bats/Throws: R/R Consistency: He was good for the Phillies. Maybe all the time off and the short season was the reason but he was good. At 37 (at the time) he was much better than the Phillies could have wished for, especially for the $1 million contract he … Continue reading PRC: Pedro Martinez

2009 Phillies Moment #10: Pedro Outduels Lincecum

(September 3, 2009) Seven innings, two earned runs.  You’d think it would be a good night.  For Tim Lincecum, it was good enough for an L.  Lincecum may have won the Cy Young for 2009, but on this date, Pedro Martinez was better.  He looked like the Pedro Martinez of old, going seven innings. After … Continue reading 2009 Phillies Moment #10: Pedro Outduels Lincecum

Bruntlett Leads Players Dropped

The Eric Bruntlett era is over. The Phillies parted ways with their utility man after his two-year stay. Hated by many, I loved his passion and his role as a good team mate and classy guy. We will never forget his unassisted triple play or him sliding home on Carlos Ruiz’s game-winning infield single in … Continue reading Bruntlett Leads Players Dropped

Yankees Win 2009 World Series

Once again, the Yankees are Pedro Martinez’s daddy. The Phillies season has finally ended as the Yankees beat up the Phillies pitching, winning game 6 by a score of 7-3 and the series 4-2. Hideki Matsui went 3-4 with six RBI’s, falling a triple shy of the cycle, as he single handedly killed the Phillies … Continue reading Yankees Win 2009 World Series

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

Dobbs Has Cooties

OK all kidding aside, Greg Dobbs has the flu or stomach virus and the Charlie Manuel had him send home so he doesn’t infect the rest of the team. He won’t be allowed back until he is completely healthy Ruben Amaro Jr. said. Tyler Walker, who wasn’t on the 25-man roster but with the team, … Continue reading Dobbs Has Cooties
