Ibanez Gets Nixed; Utley Procreates

Considering it is the offseason, this has been a busy week for the Phillies. In an unusual roster move, the Phillies have potentially signed left fielder Laynce Nix, 31, to a two-year deal, pending a physical. I say this is unusual because in a 9-year career, Nix is a .244...

Reaction to Phillies Signing of Jonathan Papelbon

I have had a few days to let the Jonathan Papelbon signing sink in now and I am still not sure what to think. Papelbon is a proven closer and a 4-time All-Star. In 2011, he saved 31 out of 34 games for the Red Sox and posted a 2.94... Continue reading "Reaction to Phillies Signing of Jonathan Papelbon" »

Award Season: Which Phillies Made the Grade So Far

Despite an early exit from the playoffs, the Phillies 102 regular season wins and stellar individual performances have earned some players much deserved honors.

Grieving the Phillies 2011 Season - Stage 4: Depression

Has anyone been watching the World Series? I have not been able to. Not because my TV blew up or squirrels chewed through my cable lines, but because it is just too depressing.

Grieving the Phillies 2011 Season - Stage 3: Bargaining

Stage 3 of my mourning the 2011 Phillies season has reached the bargaining stage. The only problem is that the season is already gone, leaving nothing but "why's," "what if's" and "if only's." For instance, What if...the Phillies had just let the Braves win the last two games of the... Continue reading "Grieving the Phillies 2011 Season - Stage 3: Bargaining" »

Grieving the Phillies 2011 Season - Stage 2: Anger

I can no longer deny that the season is OVER for the Phillies. And over in the most awful way possible. So now, I am pissed.
