The Phillies are currently playing at the home of the manager for the National League All-Star squad. Since the Los Angeles Dodgers won the World Series, Dave Roberts is the man in charge of selecting reserves and pitchers for the Mid Summer Classic. Many Phillies will get to make their case, including JT Realmuto, Zack […]Read more "Phillies’ Second Basemen Jean Segura Deserves To Be An MLB All Star This Year"
A new American hero, 3 walk-off wins, and a dominant Aaron Nola start have put the Phillies back over .500. The New York Yankees were the latest victim of the Phillies, being swept by them for the first time since 1997. Now the Phillies head to the bright lights of Hollywood to square up against […]Read more "Streaking Phillies look to make a statement in Hollywood"
There are a lot of pitchers having major success across the league this year. After a few years of batter-friendly baseball, it appears as though the tide has swung back in favor of pitchers. Currently, a whopping 29 pitchers boasting a sub-3.00 ERA (minimum 1.0 IP per team game) Furthermore, over half of these pitchers […]Read more "Why Phillies’ Zack Wheeler Deserves An All-Star Spot This Year"
After another odd Friday off, the Phillies will return to action today as they host the New York Yankees for a two-game weekend series. The Phillies, fresh off two consecutive walkoffs against the Braves, are 30-31 on the season and currently stand in second place in the National League East. Meanwhile the Bronx Bombers are […]Read more "Phillies Host Yankees in a Series of Two Fledgling Teams"
When the Phillies inked starting pitcher Zack Wheeler to a 5-year, $118M pact in 2019, it quickly became apparent that they envisioned him as a front-end starter. This was a fairly lofty goal for the then-29-year-old hurler that had never amassed more than 12 wins in a single season.

If anyone needs some fake awards, it’s the 2021 Philadelphia Phillies. It’s been less than inspiring thus far, so Kyle Fisher and I thought we’d get together and cheer (some) of our favorite Phillies up. Don’t let consecutive walk-offs fool you: the bullpen’s been a nightmare again, their run differential sits at -13, and Didi […]Read more "Phillies’ Team Award Winners Through the First Sixty Games"
In a roster of 26 men, sometimes players get lost in plain view. For example, you’d be forgiven if you forgot that Chase Anderson was still on the team. Did you forget about Matt Joyce? No problem. There is one player that everyone keeps forgetting about and they really shouldn’t be. That man is Ranger […]Read more "Why is nobody talking about Ranger Suarez when it comes to the Phillies?"
Bryson Stott started his 2021 season off with a bang! Stott played 22 games with the Jersey Shore Blue Claws. He slashed .288/.453/.548 along with 5 home runs and 22 walks. In High-A ball, he has stayed to his description of being able to hit to all fields while having an advanced approach at the […]Read more "Bryson Stott is one step closer to making the Major League jump"
The Philadelphia Phillies have been one fun baseball team so far this season. Through a very mere six games, they have put themselves at the top of the division with a 5-1 record. After a season-opening sweep of the reigning NL East Champion Braves, Philadelphia found themselves in a potential reality check series against the […]Read more "Contextualizing the Phillies Sizzling Hot Start to the Season"
Remember the dark days of late 2020? Dave Dombrowski has turned them all into a long and distant memory. The Phillies felt countries away in terms of distance from resigning JT Realmuto. Matt Klentak still held power in the Phillies’ front office. The bullpen remained a nauseating reminder of what happened during the 2020 season.
