...Same as the Old Lineup: the 2014 Phillies


Half the lineup is old, expensive and unmovable. The other half is priced right but unproven. They add up to one very familiar looking likely set of regulars for the 2014 Phillies.

Roy Rising: Phillies 9, Diamondbacks 5


Roy Halladay is back, and he's gonna kick your ass.

The Manuel Firing: Three Thoughts


A weird echo of Charlie's last dismissal, a mis-fit with the miserable team he's leaving, and where we all go from here.

Snuff Film w/Benny Hill Theme: Tigers 12, Phils 4


Three errors in an inning, two bases-loaded walks, and one punctuating grand slam, followed by consecutive John McDonald and Mini-Mart pinch-hitting appearances: Sunday's eighth straight loss had...

Keep the Phaith


They're in the throes of a season-long losing streak, their playoff odds are fading by the day, and it's SRO in the trainer's room. But we've got your reasons for hope right here.

Cliff Lee surrendered three two-out home runs and the Phillies couldn't touch Matt Harvey as they fell 5-0 to the Mets

Almost Means Nothing: Mets 5, Phillies 4


Cole Hamels can't stop the Mets; the Phillies can't get the big hit, or stay above .500

Free Frandsen! The Case for Trading M. Young


Michael Young has enjoyed a bounce-back season with the Phillies and attracted trade interest from AL contenders. With a better option already on hand, the Phils would be wise to move him.

After playing 34 innings in just over a day, the Phillies reach the all-star break with a hard-fought win and a .500 record

Phillies Trade Chips: Pitchers


By dangling Cliff Lee and Jonathan Papelbon to pitching-hungry contenders, the Phillies could shorten their path back to contention... or they could join the long line of teams that lived to regret...

Justin DeFratus can stake a claim to permanency in a shaky Phillies bullpen

Rebuilding on Air: Phils in Search of a New Core


If the 2013 Phillies continue to falter, don't expect a turnaround anytime soon.

Notes from Undergroundout: Marlins 14, Phillies 2


There's no good way to spin a 12-run loss to the worst team in the league.

Pinch Me: Phils' reserve hitters pacing NL


Through the first month, Phillies pinch-hitters are far outpacing the team's lineup regulars. And everybody else's.
