New York, this one’s for you

There will be two days during my life I will never forget: September 11, 2001 and May 1, 2011. I remember it like it’s yesterday, halting my 7th grade studies as we watched as a class on the news the terrifying events of 9/11. Our nation was torn only briefly before being brought back together … Continue reading New York, this one’s for you

Shut Out Again

The Phillies were shut out once again on this road trip, the fourth time in six games and the fifth in the last eight.

Ronny Paulino traded

The Phillies acquired pitcher Jack Taschner for catcher Ronny Paulino from the San Francisco Giants. Taschner is an experienced lefty and the move was done to bolster the bull pen with lefty arms. I had Paulino making the Phillies 25-man roster so I will replace his name with Chris Coste. I won’t add Taschner to … Continue reading Ronny Paulino traded
