It’s on the mind of the Phillies. Don’t get swept. The message is plain and simple, but it carries a much greater meaning than just not getting swept.

The Perfect Season: Lidge will always be defined by 2008

The phrase “what have you done for me lately” has become somewhat of an anthem for Philadelphia fans.

Ryan Zimmerman knew he was going to get a strike. With the bases loaded and the count full, the only pitch Ryan Madson could throw Zimmerman was a fastball in the zone.

Breaking down the Werth slump

It’s been a rough start of the season for Jayson Werth so far. His team is awful, he’s stuck being the only true star on a lowly team and he hasn’t exactly shot out of the starting gate. Werth is hitting .233 with four homers and seven RBIs. After the failed experiment of having him … Continue reading Breaking down the Werth slump
