ONE TEAM

I'll keep this short and sweet since we all have much more important things to be doing like smiling over the PSU come back victory over jNW or figuring out what we are going to do next Saturday...

The making of an All-Star catcher

+

I can't believe I am saying this, but a pretty good article from ESPN about our beloved Chooch.

The Number Shuffle

1
Courtesy of Todd Zolecki We know Jonathan Papelbon‘s alter ego "Cinco Ocho" is based on the No. 58 on the back of his jersey. But when he came to Philadelphia he knew Antonio Bastardo had the number. No big deal. Papelbon and Bastardo have the same agents, so Bastardo had no problem handing his number to the Phillies’ new closer. Bastardo's and another player changed numbers as a result of Pap's signing. Click on the link for the "inside info".

Phillies Reach Agreement With Lance Nix

13

The Phillies and Laynce Nix have agreed to terms on a two-year contract, according to Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com (Twitter links). The deal is pending a physical. Nix, who turned 31 on October 30, hit .250/.299/.451 in 351 plate appearances for the Nationals last season. The journeyman is known for his ability to hit for big power against right-handed pitching (career .198 ISO versus righties), but he doesn't get on base much and his career .506 OPS against southpaws shows he's definitely a platoon player.

Phillies Trade for "Super Sub" Ty Wiggington

"The Phillies have acquired utility man Ty Wigginton from the Rockies in exchange for a player to be named or cash, Colorado announced on its official Twitter feed." Link: https://twitter.com/#!/Rockies/statuses/138407608074780672

Battle For I-95 at the Palestra.

Rahim Thompson, the organizer of the event, confirmed that LeBron, CP3 and KD will be joining Melo and his Baltimore/DC All-Stars. Team Philly will include Lou Williams, Hakim Warrick, Kyle Lowry, Jason Thompson, John Salmons, Wayne Ellington and the Morris twins. ****************************************** Why bother? It's like the Dream Team facing the Sisters of the Poor featuring the BOSS.

Sixers core convenes in L.A for pickup games

+

"In attendance along with Brand and Williams were Andre Iguodala, Jrue Holiday, Evan Turner, Jodie Meeks, Spencer Hawes and Craig Brackins. That list includes last year’s starting five, their sixth man and a rookie who will likely earn a starting spot whenever the upcoming season does get underway."

Bryce Harper hates kids...possibly.

So as some of you may, or may not be aware I live in the Harrisburg area, actually, right outside of Harrisburg on the West Shore. Doing so affords me the ability to attend Harrisburg Senators...

Fairly, or unfairly, Carter is upset with the Flyers

227

"He had an opportunity (in 2008) to go somewhere else on an offer sheet - we had it in our hands - and we turned it down because he wanted to remain a Flyer," Curran said. "Last summer, they came to us and said he and Mike Richards are the cornerstone of the franchise. They said, 'We may need some help (with the salary cap) so we sat and talked on a long-term deal."

Phillies among 9 MLB teams out of Debt Compliance.

+

"The Phillies have sold out Citizens Bank Park throughout the season. But a team's ability to fill seats does not correspond directly with its ability to turn a profit." Any yet people have the stones to call the owners cheap.

Lucic not suspended for Game 7

+

After receiving a game misconduct and a five-minute major for boarding in Game 6, Milan Lucic will not be suspended for Game 7, Nick Kypreos of Rogers Sports net in Canada reports. Posters Note: So is Montreal going to try and press criminal charges on Lucic?

Clearwater Threshers Bullpen is the place to be.

+

"On Tuesday in the Florida State League, the Clearwater Threshers hoisted their record to 8-4 with a 7-5 win over the Daytona Cubs at Bright House Field. According to our source at the Class-A Advanced minor league game, however, the more interesting story was in the left field bullpen area."

Devan Dubnyk absolutely robs Ollie Jokinen.

Pronger and Carillo among leagues most hated...

3

"Daniel Carcillo comes in at No. 6 and Chris Pronger is tied at No. 4 with Todd Bertuzzi." *************Posters Note************* It doesn't really shock me to see Pronger on her, as great as he is he can be a pretty dirty player from time to time. But Carcillo? The article mentions his embellishment antics which I completely agree with, it's total dogshit and I hate it when he does it, but dirty? Really? I don't see that at all. I think he is one of the most respectful fighters in the game and rarely if ever do I see him doing anything dirty. However, what I think is most surprising...no mention of Briere who in my opinion is one of the dirtiest players in the game. His cavalier attitude with his stick is just unbelievable even more ridiculous when you consider how skilled he is offensively. Thoughts anyone?

Cooke Suspended Through The First Round Of The Playoffs.

10 games left in the regular season plus 4 games minimum for the playoffs.

Elton Brand and other Clippers helped pay for Assistant Coaches Cancer Treatments After Team Declines To Do So.

4

"While working as an assistant coach for the Los Angeles Clippers seven years ago, Hughes was diagnosed with prostate cancer." "I contacted the Clippers about medical coverage and they said the surgery wouldn't be covered," Hughes said. "I said, ‘Are you kidding me?' And they said if they did it for one person, they'd have to do for everybody else." "When Dunleavy learned the Clippers wouldn't cover the cost of Hughes' surgery, he mentioned it to his players." "Several of them, including now Milwaukee Bucks forward Corey Maggette, Chris Kaman, Elton Brand and Marko Jaric, were taken aback by the news and decided to offer their assistance."

Phillies Claim Brian Schlitter

45

"Cliff Lee isn't the only pitcher the Phillies nabbed from the Yankees this winter. The Phillies announced that they claimed Brian Schlitter from New York off of waivers. Philadelphia designated Andrew Carpenter for assignment to create room for Schlitter, who was designated for assignment yesterday." [Edit: frontally paginated. You may recall that Schlitter was the man dealt for everyone's favorite LOOGY, Scott Eyre, way back when in 2008. He's 25 now, and has climbed steadily through the minors after being drafted in 2007 out of baseball powerhouse College of Charleston, and he's got some middle relief possibilities in his future. --PF]

Flyers interested in Versteeg?

4

No idea how accurate this is...yahoo usually does a decent job. Knowing that the Flyers are looking for scoring depth certainly leads evidence that this could be true.

Matt Cooke suspended four games...

1

"Pittsburgh Penguins forward Matt Cooke has received a four-game suspension for his hit from behind on Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Fedor Tyutin on Tuesday, the NHL announced Wednesday."

NHL Players don't want to play for the Flyers?

6

Not going to lie, this does surprise me a bit. I get some of the teams on the list. Detroit sure, NYR...it's NY. Chicago and Vancouver, I can see that to. But Tampa? No offense to Tampa but Tampa? Steve Y clearly is a Jedi Master no doubt about it. Thoughts?

Dick LeBeau's Contract Up With Steelers...

5

Doubtful he would come to Philly, but interesting nonetheless.

Peter Forsberg attempting another comeback...

9

Forsberg was/is my favorite player of all time. As much of a Flyers fan as I am, I truly loved the Aves/Wings feud in the 90's when Foppa was at his best. I'll never forget where I was and what I was doing when I got the call that Forsberg was coming to the Flyers. Sadly, his time here was somewhat disappointing, and as much as I would love nothing more than to see him play again I fear it may be at the price of a legacy that was once so amazing.

LOLMets strike again...

This organization is inventing new ways to fail.

Bruce Boudrea's Profanity Laced Rant

Apparently this was on HBO last night. Didn't watch but I suddenly feel the need to do so. Maybe if he said it in Russian...?
