The Phillies finish up four games with a dangerous NL lineup and now face... three games with a dangerous NL lineup. It’s a new series. Cole Irvin is getting his second big league start against a powerful Rockies lineup...
The Phillies were happy to see Ryan Braun leave Philadelphia. Unfortunately, Charlie Blackmon just got here. Phillies-killers aren’t about nuance. They’re about blunt force trauma. They’re about punching the Phillies as hard as possible for six or seven games...
Will the Rockies still have the Phillies number away from Coors Field? The Phillies have not fared well when playing in Coors Field the past two years. Fortunately, this weekend’s series against the Rockies will take place in the...

One of the most bloodthirsty Phillie-killers of this (and the previous) generation will be waiting for the Phillies in Milwaukee. There’s been Phillie-killers before. They range from bonafide sluggers across the sport to muted bench bats who for no...
After another decisive defeat, the Phillies will not be sorry to see the Brewers leave town The good news is that Ryan Braun will retire one day. The bad news is that thanks to modern “medicine,” careers can be...
Here’s hoping today has fewer disappointed walks back to the dugout. It’s Throwback Thursday, so you know what that means: Baseball, but in glorious powder blue. Zach Eflin gets a crack at the Brewers while I assume his evil...

That’s now how that’s supposed to be done. Bruce Willis threw out the first pitch at the Phillies game tonight, which was appropriate, given that the Phillies were dead the whole time. Did I make this joke during the...
It’s series win time. Aaron Nola soldiered to a game one win, and Jerad Eickhoff couldn’t find the magic he needed to get through game two. That puts tonight’s rubber match with the Phillies in the hands of Jake...
The third baseman’s early dominance in the minors could put him on a fast-track to the majors. Even if you haven’t been paying attention to the Phillies’ minor league system, you’ve still probably heard of Alec Bohm. The Phils’...

Yasmani Grandal, Ryan Braun, and Brandon Woodruff tormented the Phillies once again Since joining the Phillies’ rotation in late April, Jerad Eickhoff had been excellent. But even he was powerless to stop two of the worst “Phillie killers” the...
A tough stretch started with a W. Let’s get two. It’s time for another Phillies game! Hey, no, whoa—it’s a good thing, now! Here's our lineup for game two against the Brew Crew. #RingTheBell : @NBCSPhilly : @SportsRadioWIP :...
A 55 minute rain delay and a slow first couple led to a game ending four minutes before midnight eastern time. Luckily, west coast best coast, and it’s only about 8PM for me, which means you get to read...
The long road begins. The Phillies have a stretch of series here against some of the National League’s best; the furiously resurging Cubs, the steadily dominant Dodgers, the bouncing back Rockies and Cardinals, and tonight, they get the Brewers,...
Harper’s had a lot of good moments so far in 2019, but has his season been “good?” Bryce Harper has had some very good moments here in the 2019 season, and his contributions have helped the Phillies jump out...
Maybe the Phillies can find a way to get Braun out this year? After a successful road trip into Missouri, the Phillies will return home to take on another opponent from the middle of the country. Unfortunately, the Brewers...

Cole Irvin made a hell of a big league debut in the Phillies’ series finale against the Royals. You know what’s cool? Seven strong innings. You know what’s cooler? Those same innings, also backed by an eruption of offense,...
Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers of every species, from humans to large birds. The Phillies are on the road this year, so Phoebe Phanatic likely won’t be a part of the festivities today at Kauffman Stadium. For the...
Ho hum, another start, another complete game for Zach Eflin What else can you say? The last time I recapped a game for Zach Eflin, I had to admit that I was wrong about him for 2019. Now, he’s...
It’s game two in Kansas City, let’s talk at each other. It’s the weekend, so hopefully you and I are both watching this game outdoors; a TV on a patio or a radio on the beach, somewhere that allows...
However, that doesn’t mean Bumgarner wouldn’t play for the Phils. Despite Jake Arrieta’s less-than-awesome, three-home run-allowed performance against the Kansas City Royals last night, the Phillies starting rotation has been one of the more consistent parts of the team...
Alex Gordon’s two home runs were more than enough to overcome a quiet Phillies offense If the Phillies were excited about making their first trip to Kansas City in twelve years, they didn’t show it on the field. Perhaps...
