The only real question is why he doesn’t have one already. By now, you’ve surely heard. Former Blue Jays minor league pitching coordinator and deeply mustachioed Phillies catcher Sal Fasano has lost his job. Toronto let him, as well as several other prominent figures from their development staff, go in a franchise-rattling shake-up from which it is unknown if they will ever recover...

Next week, Tim Tebow will hold a workout for major league teams and the Phillies are among the more than twenty teams expected to send scouts. Tebow just turned 29 and hasn’t played competitive baseball since he was in high school.

The Phillies will be in attendance at Tim Tebow’s desperate plea for attention baseball workout next week. According to Ryan Lawrence, “the Phillies will be among the 20-some teams that will reportedly watch Tebow’s baseball workout.” Whoever those ten-or-so teams not making the trek are, they’re the smart ones. Though honestly, if you want a way to sell Double-A or Single...

Philadelphia Phillies infielder Freddy Galvis went off to the media Sunday, after he accidentally injured a fan with a foul ball on Saturday. Galvis ranted about the lack of net protection, along with the lack of coverage after a certain amount of time.

Entering the season, Hector Neris was in possession of one of those beautiful back-of-the-bullpen starter kits. He had the requisite devastating, whiff-inducing secondary pitch as well as a solid fastball off of which to work. However, as we have seen time and again, possession of a promising pitch arsenal does not an elite reliever make. The proof is in the pudding or whatever...
