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?"
What did the best week of your life look like? Did you welcome a child into the world? Was it your big wedding day? Was it a trip you’ll never forget or even perhaps a wild party? Well, Luke Williams has you beat. He started off playing for Team USA in the Olympic qualifiers and […]Read more "Luke Williams takes Olympic Success into the Major Leagues"
The summer is truly starting to heat up as the Philadelphia Phillies welcome the Atlanta Braves to town for a inter-divisional battle. After winning the weekend series against the Washington Nationals, the Phillies are hoping to continue their momentum with their big horses – Aaron Nola, Zack Wheeler, and Zach Eflin – set to pitch […]Read more "Two Frustrated Teams: Phillies welcome Braves for three game set"
The Philadelphia Phillies continue eagerly awaiting the emergence of touted pitching prospect Spencer Howard. Stop me if that sounds familiar. Phillies’ nation is all too familiar with the sentiment. Well, the time is neigh, young man, because the Phillies yet again find themselves in the depths of pitching hell. Not quite as bad as last […]Read more "The Phillies Need Some Dark Magic From Spencer Howard"

Today, we take a look at the good, the bad, and the ugly from the first 50 games of the 2021 season. With a 24-26 record, the Phillies have been the definition of […]Read more "Phillies in a Season Full of Unmet Expectations Through 50 Games"
Did you know the Phillies are 3-6 in games that Matt Moore pitches? Now you do! Whether it was as a starter or as a reliever, Matt Moore has been an unequivocal failure. Moore has put up career highs (in a bad way) all across the board. His ERA is currently 7.36. His next highest […]Read more "It’s time for the Phillies to admit that the Matt Moore experiment has failed"
Remember Nick Pivetta and Cole Irvin? Of course, you do! They would routinely post ERA’s in the 5s and be generally frustrating. Most of us thought at some point that they could contribute to the Phillies rotation. After being traded for controversial figure Jonathan Papelbon from Washington, Pivetta had especially high hopes. If anything, we […]Read more "Former Phillies Prospects Are Succeeding for Other Teams (Go Figure)"
In a shocking turn of events, the Phillies announced that they have recalled Odubel Herrera on Monday. Herrera, 29, will be the starting centerfielder tonight, batting seventh as the Phillies face the Cardinals. Herrera will make his first major league appearance in nearly two years following his domestic abuse case in May 2019. The outfielder […]Read more "Was Odubel Herrera the Phillies’ Last Remaining Option in Centerfield?"
When I think of a Phillies-versus-Cardinals series, nothing good comes to mind. I think of squirrels, torn Achilles tendons, and Adam Wainwright. With any luck, only one of those will occur as the Phillies play four games in St. Louis to kick off the week. The Teams Coming Into the Series St. Louis Cardinals The […]Read more "Phillies Look to Right the Ship Vs. Red-Hot Cardinals"
