What everyone said after Odubel Herrera’s latest gaffe squashes rally in Phillies loss to Mets

The words were difficult to come by for a period of time at Citizens Bank Park in the bottom of the fifth inning of Sunday’s matinee with the New York Mets. Even if events similar had happened at some point this year, this one appeared to be particularly egregious for a number of reasons, namely

Watch: Chase Utley earns second career ejection after asking umpire to slide out of way

Saturday night was a lively one across baseball. Aaron Nola had another masterful performance in South Philly (and he has numbers that, if they stay at this pace, will get him Cy Young Award votes in a few months). Bryce Harper suffered a gruesome inju…

Aaron Nola keeps climbing the charts (he’s among NL ERA leaders) with new weapon in arsenal

To say that Aaron Nola has been in the zone would be lazy and cliche, and it’d also be ignoring the fact that the Louisiana kid was pretty darn good out of the gate when his big league career began. Before his early summer swoon and season-ending trip to the DL last year, Nola did the following in

How Aaron Nola, one of baseball’s best in last two months, stacks up against peers, Phillies predecessors

The second day of Phillies Alumni Weekend won’t include a Wall of Fame induction (the Pete Rose plan was scrapped less than two weeks ago) but a parade of former Phillies greats will take the field at Citizens Bank Park prior to Saturday night’s game against the Mets. MORE ON THE PHILLIES Who

Former Phillies top pitching prospect Thompson, like the two guys ranked ahead of him a year ago, learning from failure

When the Phillies made a somewhat surprising trade for Clay Buchholz in December, two of their top pitching prospects that showed flashes of success in brief big league auditions last summer moved back down the depth chart. Zach Eflin, coming off two k…

Phillies activate Howie Kendrick, but they might not be as under-the-gun to deal him as you’d think

If you’re looking for a reason to come to Citizens Bank Park during the final two months of a season that’s likely to end with the Phillies finishing with baseball’s worst record for the second time in three years, you might want to pick a date when Aaron Nola is scheduled to pitch. Nola,

MLB Trade Deadline: A deep dive into why ‘that off-the-wall Giancarlo Stanton rumor’ persists

The end of July is a tricky time of year for a baseball writer. At times you feel like the host of your own personal Mythbusters show as you weed through the never-ending cacophony of trade rumors blowing into you from different directions every day. W…

Phillies prospect Carlos Tocci cruising at Reading: ‘I know this – he keeps getting better’

TRENTON – The final week of the penultimate month of the greatest regular season in Phillies history was a busy one on the team’s transaction wire. On Aug. 22, 2011, Jimmy Rollins was placed on the disabled list. A day later, Cole Hamels joined Rollins on the DL. Infielder Pete Orr was on the turnpike

Phillies at the All-Star Break: Five encouraging signs from a rough first half

Pete Mackanin was off for the Jersey shore following Sunday’s game at Citizens Bank Park, as ready as anyone inside the ballpark for a much-needed break from baseball. The Phillies, as you may have heard, have the worst record in baseball. They had five fewer wins than any other team entering the

The hitting clinic and South Philly trip that fueled 3B prospect Mitch Walding to All-Star Game

TRENTON, N.J. – Mitch Walding, a former fifth-round pick who went to the same Northern California high school as former Blue Jays third baseman Ed Sprague and current Phillies utilityman Ty Kelly, has always been confident in his ability to hit.

Why Phillies could act quickly on a Jeremy Hellickson trade and an idea of what they could receive in return

If there’s one certainty in the life of a Phillies baseball fan awaiting the trade deadline, it’s that their lone All-Star, right-handed reliever Pat Neshek, will be wearing a new uniform before August 1. Neshek is a free agent at season’s end who turns 37 in September. He’s in the midst

Rehabbing Velasquez will return to Phillies rotation, but knows it’s ‘a must’ to realize potential in second half

Vince Velasquez’s sheer stuff – a mid-90s fastball complemented by an effective changeup and curveball – and his inconsistencies in his early starting career have led many to visualize what the hard-throwing right-hander would look like as a lockdown late-inning reliever. General manager Matt Klentak

Nick Williams set to make MLB debut with Phillies

For nearly three months, Phillies fans have pleaded with the front office overseeing the team with the worst record in baseball to infuse life onto the roster. If they couldn’t watch winning baseball, at least the Philadelphia faithful could come together and shout Promote the Prospects!! in unison

Klentak continues to stand pat: ‘This is a perfectly fine setup for right now’

Cesar Hernandez, the Phillies best offensive player over the last calendar year, will not be back in the Phillies lineup until after the All-Star break, and possibly, not until closer to the July 31 trade deadline. Hernandez is on the disabled list wit…

Phillies take UVA outfielder Haseley with 8th overall pick in MLB Draft

While the reeling Phillies attempted to put the breaks on a six-week-long skid in Boston, with 101 still remaining on their 2017 schedule, an army of scouts and front office personnel gathered in a war room at Citizens Bank Park on Monday night. They h…
