Grieving the Phillies 2011 Season - Stage 1: Denial

I have embarked on a mission to cleanse myself of the horror and grief surrounding the untimely end to the Philadelphia Phillies 2011 Season. I simply cannot continue to carry this overwhelming sense of emptiness and loss around much longer. It is like a funeral around here, and that is...

2011 Phillies Season Ends in a Total Disaster

First, congratulations to the St. Louis Cardinals. They played well and deserved to win this series. And that statement may be the only light moment in this post today... I am angry, disappointed and thoroughly disgusted by this loss and the effort this Phillies team put forth in this NLDS... Continue reading "2011 Phillies Season Ends in a Total Disaster" »

Opportunity Lost As Cards Tie Series

So far in this NLDS, two of the Phillies heralded four aces have been hugely disappointing. In Game 2, Cliff Lee gave up 5 runs in 6 innings. Tonight in Game 4, Roy Oswalt did exactly the same. Those two starts, and even yesterday's Game 3 win, only served to... Continue reading "Opportunity Lost As Cards Tie Series" »

Big Ben Unlikely Hero In Game 3 Win

With the NLDS series tied 1-1 between the Philadelphia Phillies and the St. Louis Cardinals, Game 3 was going to be big for the winner. The Phillies had not been able to hit Cards starter Jaime Garcia in previous meetings, so for the Phillies, this was not an easy task.... Continue reading "Big Ben Unlikely Hero In Game 3 Win" »

Major Lee Let-Down in Game 2

If I had not watched the game last night and you told me this morning that Cliff Lee blew a 4-run lead in a playoff game, I would have assumed that someone put crack in your cornflakes. But alas, I did see the game and yes, the unbeLEEable happened. Cardinals... Continue reading "Major Lee Let-Down in Game 2" »

Phillies Clip Cardinals' Wings in Game 1

Game 1 of the Phillies - Cardinals NLDS looked like a party before the game began: Then after scoring 3 runs off Phillies ace Roy Halladay in the first inning, the Cardinals were given false hopes of possibly winning the game. After all, Halladay does not usually implode in this... Continue reading "Phillies Clip Cardinals' Wings in Game 1" »

Phillies Make History With 102 Wins

The Phillies ended the 2011 regular season with 102 wins after a 13 inning 4-3 victory over the Braves. The 3-game sweep of the Braves knocked them out of the playoffs and also set a new record for the Phillies. The franchise mark of 101 wins in a season has...

Phillies Tie Franchise Record With 101 Wins

With a 7-1 win over the Braves on Tuesday night, the Phillies tied the franchise record for wins in a season with 101. The Phillies also reached 101 in 1976 and 1977. There was a lot of good news in this game, besides the win. Roy Oswalt looked playoff ready... Continue reading "Phillies Tie Franchise Record With 101 Wins" »

100 Wins

For only the 3rd time in franchise history, the Phillies have reached 100 wins for the season. They beat the Braves by a score of 4-2 on Monday night and Cliff Lee earned the win.

Doc Helps Cure Phillies Losing Streak

After losing eight straight games since clinching the NL East, the Phillies sent Roy "Doc" Halladay to the mound today to operate on the Mets. Thanks to six scoreless innings from Doc, the Phillies had a shot at a win. But the ailing offense would also need to find a... Continue reading "Doc Helps Cure Phillies Losing Streak" »

One Huge Error, Two More Losses as Phils Drop 8th Straight

Game one of today's doubleheader against the Mets was highlighted by a superb performance from Cole Hamels, more crappy offense and a failure of basic math skills. Hamels went seven strong innings, allowing just a solo homer. Sadly, the homer was hit by Val Pascucci who had not hit a...

666 - 6 Runs Allowed in 6th Straight Loss with 6 Games To Go

For the first time in 2 seasons, the Phillies have dropped 6 consecutive games. The 6-1 loss to the Nationals on Thursday completed a 4-game sweep, making the Phillies the final MLB team to suffer a 4-game sweep that had not previously done so this year. Oh yes, all sorts...

Phillies Offense Still on Vacation

Going into tonight’s game, the Phillies have lost four straight games, including both games of a doubleheader against the Nationals on Tuesday. With both the division and home field advantage wrapped up for the postseason, the bats have gone into hibernation. During the offensive coma yesterday, both Carlos Ruiz and...

Home Field Clinched Despite Another Loss

Even though they lost 4-3 to the Cardinals on Monday night, the Phillies still managed to clinch home field advantage throughout the playoffs thanks to the Braves losing to the Cubs. This team is so good, it seems they can literally do nothing and succeed. However, this series with the... Continue reading "Home Field Clinched Despite Another Loss" » Video Corner
