Phillies Rumors: Rays and Phillies looking to match up?

Seems the Phillies might be in advanced talks with their 2008 World Series opponents We’re all waiting for rumors about something, ANYTHING that the Phillies might be working on. We’ve been discussing, searching, hypothesizing, and podcasting about all of the trade possibilities that can be made by Matt Klentak and company. As the clock ticks closer to the trade deadline, we’re beginning to see some evidence that the team is really working the phones. Here’s the latest rumor, from...

4-run inning latest indication of surging bats

Maybe all the Phillies needed was a break. A break from the losing. The dormant offense. The malaise of the first half.

Crew Down: Phillies 6, Brewers 3

The Phils offense stayed hot as they won their second consecutive series, this one coming against the NL Central leader I must admit, after listening to Mike Schmidt explain his theory as to how to make the game “fairer” for right-handed hitters – which, in case you did not hear it, is to make hitters run to 1st base for the first half of the game and then to 3rd base for the second half – I very seriously contemplated turning the game off. But I persevered to get this recap...

Phillies beat Milwaukee 6-3 to win second straight series

We haven’t said it often, in fact, late April was the last time it happened when the Phillies won seven straight games, but the club has won back-to-back series with today’s 6-3 win over the Milwaukee Brewers. Nick Williams continues his rookie campaign with an opposite-field two-run home run in the fourth to open the scoring. The left-handed hitter also added a walk drove in three runs total. Phillies’ starter Jerad Eickhoff‘s only trouble came in the fifth, when he allowed a...

Phillies continuing to see Nick Williams blossom at the plate

The Phillies have a bright spot in the form of outfielder Nick Williams. His recent success at the plate solidifies his future.

The momentum Williams brought to the […] Phillies continuing to see Nick Williams blossom at the plate - Section 215 - Section 215 - A Philadelphia City Sports blog

Crazy Pills: Brewers 9, Phillies 8

I don’t even know what happened in this game.

This game, guys. This game.

I barely even know what happened. It was INSANE. What I do know is the Phillies lost to the Brewers 9-8, but it involved a huge comeback and some fantastic home runs.

Admittedly nothing much happened through the first four innings. And that’s not just because I was out at dinner and keeping track on my phone. Jeremy Hellickson vomited up four runs in the third inning and another two in the fifth, which did...

Phillies’ bullpen spoils seven-run comeback effort

It was ugly early, as Jeremy Hellickson was hoping to boost his trade value just nine days before the deadline. Ryan Braun was Milwaukee’s offensive star, who fueled a four-run third inning with a two-run double to right field. He then delivered with a two-run shot to left center in the fifth inning. The outfielder was 3-for-3 with four RBI on the night and raised his career average against the Phillies to .379, not to mention 61 RBI in 65 games. The Brewers were up 6-0 after five,...

Game Thread 7/22: Brewers at Phillies

Don’t talk about the winning streak!

I’m not going to talk about the Phillies’ mini winning streak. It’s not happening. Nothing is happening! Everything is normal! No! I can feel you wanting to talk about it, I can sense you opening your mouth and putting words to thought, and don’t do it! They’ll know! They’ll know you’re talking about it and they’ll start to suck again! Noooooo!!!!

Anyway, let’s look at who’s on the field tonight.

Neshek defies normal usage in Phillies' 'pen

When a player has a standout season like Pat Neshek, it's often more important to discern why he's been successful instead of simply appreciating his success.

Phillies trade talk: Targeting Michael Fulmer

Could the Phillies make a deal for the Detroit Tigers’ young ace?

Through the first half of the season, one of the reasons people were unsure about the direction and timeline of the Phillies’ rebuild was the struggles of the starting rotation.

Aaron Nola, Jared Eickhoff and Vince Velasquez were all either injured or ineffective. Or both.

But in recent weeks, the rotation has started to come around. Velasquez had an encouraging start coming off the disabled list, and Eickhoff has had one...
