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. Not only had Wheeler not compiled […]Read more "Zack Wheeler Has Quietly Evolved Into an Ace in Philly"
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?"

The summer is truly starting to heat up as the Philadelphia Phillies welcome the Atlanta Braves to town for a inter-divisional battle.

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"
The Phillies are returning home to Citizen Bank Park after what was supposed to be a nine (thanks rain) game road trip. They closed said road trip and the series against the Reds with an offensive explosion, winning 17-3, but finished the trip going 3-5. With their record now sitting at 26-29 overall, the Phillies […]Read more "Phillies Host the Nationals to Kick Off Another Home Stand"
The Phillies have experienced a weird and whacky schedule as of late to say the least. With rainouts and obscurely placed days off, the rotation is not in much of a normal rythym right now as they enter a weekend series at home against the Nationals. What we saw from the Phillies last week Last […]Read more "How an odd Phillies schedule impacts the pitching rotation"
The Phillies will leave Cincinnati with a two-game split as today’s 12:35 p.m. game has been postponed due to rain. The game will be made up on Monday, June 28th. Following an 11-1 loss on Monday, the Phillies rose to the occasion on Tuesday, winning by a score of 17-3. A Dreadful Downful for the […]Read more "Phillies’ Momentum Comes to a Grinding Halt Following Reds Rainout"
