High Hopes and Broken Hearts: My Favorite and Least Favorite Phillies Games

I know I have been gone a while. Work and life intervened, and while baseball was still a refuge, I just did not have the time to be here. I hope to be spending more time here in the future. When...

Welcome Back Roy! Halladay activated, Sanches Optioned

News we already knew: Doc is back! And in news we did not know Brian Sanches has been outrighted to AAA. The Gang's (almost) All Back, let the celebration begin!

A Game of Feet (and ankles)?!?

It is often said that football is a game of inches... but I think in this NFL playoff's it has really been a game of feet (and ankles)... The Broncos beat the Steelers in part because Ben...

Just a little bit volatile... via media.trb.com   This afternoon, Cliff Lee started July with a performance that was as ugly as his June was beautiful. When Lee imploded in the eighth, it was...

Shane Victorino Activated, John Mayberry Jr. optioned

2

Per the Phillies Twitterbeat: The Phillies have activated Center Fielder Shane Victorino. To make room, John Mayberry Jr. Has been optioned to AAA Lehigh Valley. Rant below.

Mike Zagurski Recalled

+

Per the Phillies beat writers. The Phillies have recalled left handed reliever Mike Zagurski to take Vance Worley's spot on the Phillies roster. No word yet on who will be taking Blanton's spot in the rotation.

Vance Worley Optioned to Lehigh Valley

+

Per CNN Philly and Todd Zolecki. The Phillies optioned RHP Vance Worley to Lehigh Valley following today's game against the Nationals. This came one day after Worley allowed thirteen hits and eight runs (five earned) in only three innings. The move is intended to allow Worley to gain endurance and work on a secondary pitch. A corresponding roster move will be announced tomorrow. With Worley back in Lehigh, the Phillies have a couple of options for a fifth starter. They could go with spot starts from Kyle Kendrick out of the bullpen or they could use the off days to go without a fifth starter until June 8 against the Dodgers.

Happy Pete Signs with the Camden Riversharks

+

Former Phillies Third Baseman Pedro Feliz has signed a contract with the Camden Riversharks. The 36 year old Feliz played last year for the Astros and Cardinals. He signed with the Royals last off season but was released when it became clear he would not make the team.

Welcome Back Chooch!!!!!

The Phillies have activated Starting catcher Carlos Ruiz from the disabled list. He has been replaced on the DL by back up catcher Brian Schneider.

He's Alive- Chase Utley to rehab at Class A Clearwater

+

Per Matt Gelb and the Phillies beatwriters, Chase Utley has been assigned to rehab at Class A Clearwater, beginning today. This officially starts the clock for Utley's return, which must be made within 20 days of beginning a rehab assignment.

Romero Activated from DL, Herndon Optioned to Lehigh

7

The Phillies have activated lefty reliever J.C. Romero from the 15 day disabled list. To make room, struggling reliever David Herndon has been optioned to AAA Lehigh Valley.

Joe Blanton to DL, Worley to Start tomorrow

1

Per Todd Zolecki, Joe Blanton has been placed on the disabled list with a "right medial impingement of the right elbow". Vance Worley has been recalled and will start in his place.

Two Games for the Price of 1! Phillies vs. Tigers AND Phillies @ Jays 3/26/11

2

On this final Saturday of Spring Training, we join a pair of games in the first inning. It is scoreless behind Fierabend @ home, with Wilson Valdez leading off. Meanwhile in Dunedin, Kendrick and most of the regulars have already given up a run. Let's go Phillies!

Trade Chase Utley?!?

17

This morning's Metro suggests that it is time for the Phillies to trade Chase Utley before his value slips any further (considering that he is already a corpse, I guess they are concerned about rotting)... Their trade suggestions were these gems: Chase Utley, Joe Blanton, and Shane Victorino to the Rangers for Nelson Cruz, Michael Young (the rumor that never dies!), and cash (Polanco plays Second base). Chase Utley to the Cardinals for our favorite former Supreme Court Justice and Trevor Miller. And the most ludicrous of them all Chase Utley to Kansas City for prospects. Should the Phillies trade Chase Utley? If so, what could they hope to get back in such a deal?

News of the Undead- Polanco out at least two more days.

+

So maybe those reports of Peanuthead's demise were not so off target. He has yet to take batting practice since hyperextending his elbow on Tuesday and will not be playing in games for at least the next two days. Pete Orr will start in his place. In lieu of flowers, donations can be sent to the Fund for Cerebellar Research.

Pats still being punished for SpyGate?? Greg Easterbrook thinks so!

10

I broke my "no reading about football" fast to peek at Tuesday Morning Quarterback today and found that the Pats were the leading story in Easterbrook's column. I know that it is a little far fetched to believe that some godly/ karmic force punishes for prior behavior (misunderstanding or not), but what does everyone think?

Phillies Release Spring Training Schedule

+

The Philadelphia Phillies have released their Spring Training schedule, featuring a month of games beginning against the New York Yankees in Tampa and ending with two games in Philadelphia against the Pirates. The first Spring Training Game is February 26, 2011... only 114 days away!

Roy Halladay Wins Player's Choice Award!

2

Award season has started early for Roy Halladay as he was named the National League winner of the Player's Choice Award for top hurler. Halladay won this award in the American League in 2003, the year that he won his Cy Young. May this be a sign of great things to come!

Polanco to Have Surgery Friday

1

Third Baseman Placido Polanco is scheduled to have surgery Friday to remove bone chips and repair the extensor tendon in his elbow. Typical recovery takes 8-10 weeks and Polanco is expected to be fully recovered in time for Spring Training.
