Even with hits being scarce against the Reds, that didn’t stop Wilson Valdez from getting things … Continue reading Victorino’s late blast lifts Phils

Cole Hamels “had the most fun” at Victorino’s charity fashion show last night

You can say he had a little too much fun… It’s not a purse, it’s a satchel. Indiana Jones wore one. At least Ryan Howard dressed semi-normal at this event.

Worley man-handles Mets

It was a very relaxed night for Vance Worley and the Phils. After getting himself in a couple jams in the 1st and 2nd innings, Worley settled down tremendously, both on the hill and at the plate.
