The two NL East bottom-dwellers are meeting up for one final, exhausted go at each other. The Phillies After a 17-0 loss to the Mets, at home, the Phillies are basically just playing for an empty room these days. I'll bet there were final scores on the NFL schedule this past Sunday that were less lopsided than that loss. Were the Phillies scheduled to have Monday off, or did...

Congratulations to the 2008 Phillies for making the 2016 post season. Who would have thought, as we watched this team fade away in 2012, that four years later, we’d be seeing Chase Utley, Carlos Ruiz, Joe Blanton, Jayson Werth, Cole Hamels, and Jimmy Rollins together again at the playoffs?

I don’t wanna baseball: Mets 17, Phillies 0

That is the real score. Yup. I didn’t want to baseball yesterday. Hearing about the death of Jose Fernandez, my favorite pitcher in all of baseball, just completely sapped my baseball desire. Apparently it did the same for the Phillies, who lost 17-0 to the Mets. That’s right. 17-0. The Phillies allowed the Mets to score 17 runs, and the Phillies scored none. For all the...

The Phillies should bring back Jeremy Hellickson

What will Jeremy Hellickson provide for an encore? The veteran righty, who takes the ball tonight against the New York Mets, is fresh off a three-hit, complete game shutout of the Miami Marlins over the weekend.

End of season post-mortem: 2016 Philadelphia Phillies

The Phillies gutted their roster of most veterans over the last year-plus, with Ryan Howard standing as the final member of the 2008 World Champion Philadelphia squad.
