Jorge Alfaro's 89-MPH Throw To Second Is A Base-Stealer's Nightmare

The Phillies have been winning ballgames, more than anyone expected through this point in May. Some attribute that to pumping up the rotation with Jake Arrieta, Odubel Herrera’s scorching start, or Gabe Kapler’s cosmic management, but there also are the little things that don’t come through in the box score, like…

Odubel Herrera’s On-Base Streak Ended Even Though He Got On Base Odubel Herrera’s On-Base Streak Ended Even Though He Got On Base

Odubel Herrera didn’t start opening day, but since then, he’s been on fire: He leads the National League in batting average, at .344, and is 10th in slugging. (Yes, genius manager/fedora wearer Gabe Kapler benched his best player, now a legit NL MVP candidate, for the first game of the season.) The Phillies are a…

Shortstop Pedro Florimon Pitches Perfect Inning, Then Socks Mighty Dinger Shortstop Pedro Florimon Pitches Perfect Inning, Then Socks Mighty Dinger

The dreaded Cardinals chased Phillies ace Jake Arrieta after just three innings in Friday night’s gloomy, rain-delayed tilt in St. Louis. The score was then 4-0; by the time reliever Drew Hutchison finished the sixth inning it was 9-2; the game finally became a laugher when Yacksel Rios allowed another three runs in…

Max Scherzer Is A Fire-Breathing Dragon Max Scherzer Is A Fire-Breathing Dragon

The marquee pitching matchup of the day had former Cy Young winners Max Scherzer and Jake Arrieta pitching the rubber match of the Phillies-Nationals series. Arrieta was fine—he allowed a run on two hits and two walks in six innings—but Mad Max was downright historic:

Pedro Florimon Ruins The Nationals With Slick Glove Fake-Out

Phillies starter Vince Velasquez and four relievers held a banged-up and disappointing Nationals lineup to just two hits in Saturday’s 3-1 Phillies victory. The Nats engineered eight walks in the game, but left eight runners on base and were 0-3 with runners in scoring position. They did, however, put speedster Trea…

Pug Terrorized By Phillie Phanatic While Trying To Enjoy Ballgame

The Phillie Phanatic celebrated his birthday yesterday by inviting a whole bunch of dogs to hang out with him at the ballpark. Some even performed in an agility contest! With the Phillies trailing in the bottom of the eighth inning, the Phanatic said hello to this unsuspecting pug and maybe kinda sorta tried to eat…

Ender Inciarte's Home-Run Robbery Was So Good It Fooled The Phillies Announcer Ender Inciarte's Home-Run Robbery Was So Good It Fooled The Phillies Announcer

Braves center fielder Ender Inciarte covered a tremendous amount of ground to get to a Scott Kingery home run attempt in tonight’s Atlanta-Philly game. And even after he got to the wall in left-center, he had to stretch himself as high as possible to snag the long fly ball.

The Tale Of Gabe Kapler's Bizarre Ice Cream Habit Is Actually Even Weirder  The Tale Of Gabe Kapler's Bizarre Ice Cream Habit Is Actually Even Weirder 

It’s too early in the baseball season to make any meaningful judgments about the strength of any teams, but one takeaway from the first couple of weeks is that rookie Phillies manager Gabe Kapler is one of a kind.

Joey Votto Performs A Public Service, Robs Eagles Fan Of Happiness Joey Votto Performs A Public Service, Robs Eagles Fan Of Happiness

Reds first baseman Joey Votto, who loves to punk and clown doofuses, performed a good deed during Monday’s Reds-Phillies game when he snatched up the remaining dignity of a guy in an Eagles jersey.

Six Games In, Everyone Already Hates Gabe Kapler Six Games In, Everyone Already Hates Gabe Kapler

On Thursday, the Phillies won their home opener for the first time since 2011. They did so easily, in a 5-0 win over the Marlins where Miami had just four baserunners. The game even ended in 3 hours, 3 minutes. Pretty quick for a game where the Phillies saw 177 pitches! It was a great day at the ballpark.

What Did Gabe Kapler Fuck Up This Time? What Did Gabe Kapler Fuck Up This Time?

Phillies manager Gabe Kapler had a hell of a first week on the job. First he mismanaged the bullpen to the point that he needed to put a position player on the mound just a few games into the season, and then he tried to make a pitching change before anyone had been given a chance to warm up. The second week has…

John Kruk Hints At The Gross Thing He Did As A Player During Rain Delays John Kruk Hints At The Gross Thing He Did As A Player During Rain Delays

Today’s Phillies-Mets game broadcast only on Facebook was fittingly delayed nearly two hours due to rain, so announcer Scott Braun asked color commentator Cliff Floyd what he did to pass the time during rain delays. Floyd said he’d text with friends, watch whatever other game was on, and try to stay calm. Then Braun…

Gabe Kapler's Cosmic Brain Is Putting The Phillies In Some Tough Spots Gabe Kapler's Cosmic Brain Is Putting The Phillies In Some Tough Spots

Gabe Kapler, new manager of the Philadelphia Phillies, is having a weird time. It’s too early to call it a hard time, and probably too early for any firm pronouncements about his fit as a manager, but things are for sure going in strange directions. Through three games Kapler has already spent more time defending his…

The Phillies Need A Lefty Pitcher Who Doesn’t Mind Getting Lit Up The Phillies Need A Lefty Pitcher Who Doesn’t Mind Getting Lit Up

Even though it’s Opening Day, the Phillies are still short one left-handed pitcher.

Tom Hallion Puts On A Ridiculous Spring Ump Show With Five Silly Ejections Tom Hallion Puts On A Ridiculous Spring Ump Show With Five Silly Ejections

Spring training is long. By this point, just about everyone is tired of it. Umpire Tom Hallion was apparently especially tired of it Thursday. Hallion ejected five guys—in three separate incidents, none of them particularly meaningful—in yesterday’s Tigers-Phillies game.

Jake Arrieta Finally Rejoins The Ranks Of The Employed, Signs With The Phillies Jake Arrieta Finally Rejoins The Ranks Of The Employed, Signs With The Phillies

Jake Arrieta, National League Cy Young Award winner, World Series hero, thrower of two career no-hitters, recently the ace of the Chicago Cubs rotation, is reportedly set to join the Philadelphia Phillies, a team that won 66 games in 2017:

Roy Halladay's Memorial Service Captured The Best Of "Your Favorite Player's Favorite Player"  Roy Halladay's Memorial Service Captured The Best Of "Your Favorite Player's Favorite Player" 

It’s now been a week since Roy Halladay was killed flying a small plane over the Gulf of Mexico. Most of the public eulogizing that’s come pouring out over the last several days has centered on his incredible talent—and how can it not, when someone could pitch like that—but today offered some more intimate testimony,…

What Roy Halladay Meant To Philadelphia What Roy Halladay Meant To Philadelphia

My memory is vivid. Okay, it’s only been seven years. But if I close my eyes I can see us sitting there at the bar: Upstairs at Jose Pistola’s, the place that inspired the Dallas Sucks beer, cheering on the Phillies in the first game of the 2010 playoffs.
