Kendrick deals in Phils 5th straight win

Kyle Kendrick quite possibly made his last start on the season for the Phils, barring any sort of set-back by a pitcher.

Stemming from a conversation Tom McCarthy, Chris Wheeler and Gary Matthews were having on the Phils broadcast last night, I want to take a little time to talk about a certain Colorado Rockies star who I’ve seen tearing it up in baseball for the past 14 years. Todd Helton has been an absolute force in … Continue reading A career worth consideration?

Cole Hamels was as good as you can expect him to be, pitching too good for the Phillies offense to squander his gem in their 2-1 win Wednesday night. The Phillies started off their nine-day home stand with … Continue reading Hamels makes most of two runs
