  • Howard unlikely to move from clean-up spot in near future; Roster move made

     
    Ryan Howard's numbers are hardly that of a clean-up hitter, especially in the last five weeks. From May 8 to June 12, Howard hit .218 (22-for-101) with one home run in 111 plate appearances (29 games, 26 starts). His slugging......
  • Dubee likes having 7 relievers; Phillies quash rumors of shutting down Halladay

     
    The Phillies got a little more bullpen help today. Left-hander Raul Valdes was activated from the disabled list, giving them seven relievers again. To make room for him on the 25-man roster, the club sent Hector Lunato Triple-A Lehigh Valley.......
  • Phillies mount comeback, rescue Lee

     
    The home run ball continued to be problematic for Cliff Lee. Lucky for him, his teammates bailed him out. Lee allowed three home runs Sunday against the Diamondbacks (giving him 18 for the season), and when he left in the......
  • Leftover notes from my night at the #Phillies and a memorable come-from-behind win

     
    For at least a couple of nights, the Phillies have given their fans some hope and reminded them of the magic of the past five seasons. Stranger things have happened, but they've still got a real long way to go. Certainly, they're still a team worth...
  • Phillies Garage Sale

     
    Today is supposed to feature a new "What Is It?" but the Phillies shakeup -- which also affected the IronPigs in a big way -- is so fresh that I decided to go with that instead. I'll post "What Is......
  • Pierre had some extra inspiration Sunday

     
    When Juan Pierre realized he had legged out an infield single that gave the Phillies a walk-off 8-7 win in the 11th inning at Citizens Bank Park on Sunday, he ran around shallow right field and then jump into Jeremy......
  • A few thoughts after a night in Philly and a Phillies win

     
    Was in pinch-hit mode for Mandy Housenick tonight in Philly, and all things considered, this was a pretty good one to see. First of all, this one lasted just two hours and 16 minutes. You don't get many games moving along that fast anymore. Many nights...
  • IronPigs and Phillies

     
    I had tickets for Monday's IronPigs season finale, and I stubbornly drove over there despite the lousy weather. This turned out to be a bad decision, since they never got the tarp off the field and ended up canceling the......
  • Another new face making his major league debut

     
    As Steve Lerud was pulling into the parking lot of his hotel late Wednesday night, his phone rang. A Phillies clubhouse attendant was calling on behalf of Charlie Manuel telling him he would be making his big league debut on......
  • With Schneider on DL, Phillies left with two backup catchers

     
    This is certainly not how Brian Schneider envisioned the last six weeks of the season going. Just 25 days after coming off the disabled list (right ankle sprain), the Northampton graduate is back there again, this time with a left......
  • Two Phillies players to attend winter banquet at Sands Bethlehem

     
    Two Phillies who many of you grew attached to last year, especially in the second half of the season, will be the guests of honor at the Phillies Winter Banquet in Bethlehem in January. Catcher Erik Kratz and infielder Kevin......
  • NEW IRONPIGS MANAGER ADDED TO CARAVAN ROSTER ...
