The curious future of Cole Hamels as a member of the Phillies

Rebuild. A word that no true sport fan wants to hear when it comes to their team, especially if that team has provided a championship in the last 10 years. It’s a scary word, meaning your team will move on from players who have made an everlasting impression on their city, their fans, and their […]

Phillies are Really Going to Sell Hard Alcohol to Fans This Season

This is going to end well. For the first time ever, the Philadelphia Phillies are going to be serving hard alcohol at their concession area this upcoming season. The Phillies previously sold cocktails for those lucky enough to get their hands on premium seating at Citizens Bank Park. But now the entire crowd (21 and over) can actually shoot down some hard alcohol before returning...

Meet Odubel Herrera: The Phillies Opening Day Center Fielder

Last weekend, Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg indicated the team is moving Ben Revere from center field to left field to make room for Odubel Herrera — a speedy slap hitter they plucked from the Rangers in the rule 5 draft last winter. Although he’s second baseman by trade, Herrera apparently showed enough outfield range this spring to convince the Phillies brass that...

Phillies debut 'a surreal moment' for Zach Eflin

This past week, we've gotten to see a glimpse of the Phillies future in terms of pitching. The trio of Aaron Nola, Severino Gonzalez and Zach Eflin could be anchoring the Phillies rotation in a few years. Yesterday, Eflin got to start on the big league stage for the first...

Storyline: Utley’s Unannounced Replacement on the Phillies

Because of his three vesting options, Chase Utley could be the regular second baseman of the Philadelphia Phillies for the next four campaigns. Starting in 2015 and through 2017 for each 162, Utley will either have 500 plate appearances to guarantee $15 million for the following season or a club option of $11 million or $5 million if he doesn’t have 500 PA. He had 664 plate appearances...

Domonic Brown Likely to Miss Opening Day

According to Phillies GM Ruben Amaro and Manager Ryne Sandberg, Domonic Brown is likely to miss Opening Day, and could find himself on the DL to start the season. If this is the case, the Phillies will carry Jeff Francoeur, Jordan Danks, Brian Bogusevic, and Darin Ruf. Brown’s recovery from tendonitis in his left Achilles has been “slow,” and seeing the downhill spiral Ryan...

Phillies Move Ben Revere to Left Field

With only one week remaining before the regular season, Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg has made his final crucial decision. The decision was to move Ben Revere from Center Field to Left Field. Since joining the Phillies, Revere has shown subpar defense in Center Field. While his speed is among the best in the major leagues, he often fails to utilize it by taking odd routes to fly...

Phillies name Cole Hamels as Opening Day starter

Earlier on Sunday,  Ryan Lawrence of the Philadelphia Daily News reported that the Philadelphia Phillies announced that Cole Hamels will be the team’s Opening Day starter. This announcement was expected as Hamels is the Phillies best pitcher on the staff but who doesn’t like a bit of excitement. In Hamels’ latest Grapefruit League appearance three days ago against the Toronto...

Phillies should use Ben Revere to acquire a starting pitcher

The Phillies decided that they could no longer tolerate Ben Revere's arm in center field. It is almost funny, since Revere has made one highlight reel catch after another in left field. The shame of the situation is that the Phillies simply cannot afford to waste left field on someone...

Cole Hamels To Start Opening Day for Phillies

Earlier this afternoon Phillies manager Ryne Sandberg named Cole Hamels the opening day starter.  Hamels was the obvious choice and it was not much of a question as to who would start opening day.  The questions are who else is going to make up the 2015 starting rotation for the Phillies. Cliff Lee is already on the 60 day DL and there is a good chance he will miss the entire season...

Philadelphia Phillies: Bold prediction for 2015

The Philadelphia Phillies will explode the core of their team and be the worst team in the NL East. While the Phillies’ terrible team play and attempts to trade some of their major contributors is obviously not a recipe for success, but I believe they will “shoot for the moon” and pull a full-on Sam Hinkie (shout out to Sixers fans that are still hanging in there). They are...

Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez Among Latest Round of Cuts

Phillies Demote Miguel Alfredo Gonzalez, Five Others

The Cuban righthander didn’t live up to expectations this Spring, allowing 12 earned runs–as well as five home runs and 25 hits–over 14.1 innings. He’ll start the season in the minors again, which is a disappointment.  In addition to the MAG demotion, the...

Aaron Nola gives Phillies fans something to be excited about

Philadelphia Might Have a Taker for Ryan Howard

The Philadelphia Phillies are looking to unload Ryan Howard…and they might just have an interested party. The team has made it public that they’d be willing to eat $50 million of the $60 million they owe Howard and the York Revolution of the independent Atlantic League appear to be willing to take them up on the offer. But there’s a catch…they’d like to get their fans to...
