Phormer Phils: Scott Rolen

By John Russo Since we completely forgot all about this segment, we though it would be nice to continue it with the Phillies playing Cincinnati and another notable Phormer Phillie. Scott Rolen will forever be remembered as the player ahead of his time, the guy who potentially could have been greater than Mike Schmidt but … Continue reading Phormer Phils: Scott Rolen

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. They are currently sitting in third place and 5 games behind the hated Atlanta Braves.  Missing Chase Utley, Jimmy Rollins, and … Continue reading 2010 Isn’t That Bad

Reds Hand Phillies; Kendrick Huge Blow

Kyle Kendrick is hit or miss for the Phillies. He proved that again tonight as he got blown up by the Reds’ two leaders, Scott Rolen and Joey Votto. Rolen hit a two run homer and Votto had three hits as the Reds beat Philadelphia 7-3 Monday night in Cincy. Kendrick is probably the most … Continue reading Reds Hand Phillies; Kendrick Huge Blow

The Respect We Deserve

If I were to tell you ten years ago that the Phillies were going to be the best team in baseball starting in 2008, you would think I was joking while wearing your Scott Rolen t-shirt and pissed-off Curt Schilling was a Diamondback. Oh how the times have changed. The Phillies won the division in 2007, their first … Continue reading The Respect We Deserve

Phils Swept By Jays

This is the same team that took a series versus the Yankees, Mets, and Dodgers in their parks. Surely they could come home and take a team that hasn’t beaten a National League foe yet all season. Coming into this series with a 13-16 record at home, should we really have been surprised the Phillies … Continue reading Phils Swept By Jays

Richmond Dominates Phils (recap)

The Blue Jays were unsure up until yesterday who they would throw against the Phillies. Scott Richmond became the choice but it could have secretly been injured pitcher Roy Halladay the way he pitched. Richmond pitched eight strong innings and allowing only one run on five hits, one walk, and struck out 11 en route … Continue reading Richmond Dominates Phils (recap)
