Roy Oswalt to Philly done pending the pitcher’s approval

UPDATE: It appears as if Roy Oswalt has agreed to waive his no trade clause and head to Philly, according to ESPN's Jayson Stark. The Phillies will send J.A. Happ and two prospects, rumored to be Vance Worley and Anthony Gose, to Houston and will get Oswalt and $10 million from the Astros. More updates and reactions as news comes in. According ...

Allen signs, Cooper impresses, offensive line issues

The first three days of training camp are in the books and what have we seen so far? Honestly, not much. First round pick Brandon Graham still has yet to sign a contract, and contrary to his words from a couple of weeks ago, he's a camp no- show. While I am still confident that this isn't ...

Training camp preview: quarterbacks and receivers

With just a day from the start of training camp at Lehigh, it's time for us to bring you the second installment in our preview series. A few days ago we looked at the pros and cons of the offensive line going into camp, and now it's time to focus on some of the guys they're trying to protect ...

The Sixers fork in the road

The Sixers may have benefited from a short lived buzz due to the drafting of Evan Turner, the work is not finished.  In all reality, the work may not be finished before the start of the 2010/11 campaign. The Sixers have reached the proverbial  "fork in the road." It's where decisions must be made, like it or not. Mainly, the Sixers ...

One last update on Phinally Philly

Posted by Kieran Kelly on January - 17 - 2011
Just wanted to post one last time to bring this site to a close. I had a great time working on this after Roman brought me on and it was fun to work with everyone here: Chris, Foley, Dany, Mike, Kevin & all of the guest posters we’ve had. In the end, we just don’t have the time that we once had to devote to the blog.  Careers & other interests have taken up that time. Good luck to everyone that has done...

Finally, an update on Phinally…

Posted by Kieran Kelly on November - 18 - 2010
I know it’s been a while for us here at Phinally Philly, but as the above tweet shows, we’ve been on a semi-permanent hiatus for a few months. Everyone involved kind of got busy with other things, be it school related, job related, or just plain busy. I’ve felt bad not giving an update, so I figured today would be a good day. However, as anyone following our Twitter account could tell, we’ve been quite...

Sixers deal Smith, Green to Hornets in four-player deal

Posted by Mike Santa Barbara on September - 23 - 2010
Amidst the craziness that is the Philadelphia sports scene lately, it’s safe to say the Sixers aren’t being discussed around the water cooler in your office.  However, that doesn’t mean the Sixers aren’t making moves. On Thursday the Sixers made a deal with the New Orleans Hornets. Sending longest tenured Sixer, Willie Green, and former 1st round pick Jason Smith to the Hornets in exchange for big...

22 games left for the Phillies, but 6 will decide the NL East

Posted by Kieran Kelly on September - 8 - 2010
For the first time since May 30th, the Philadelphia Phillies woke up on top of the NL East today with a 1/2 game lead over the Atlanta Braves.  Since holding a 7 game lead over the Phillies on July 21st, the Braves have gone 24-22. Over that same stretch, the Fightins have gone 32-15 to overtake Atlanta. Everyone has been waiting for Atlanta to fall back to Earth at some point this season, but they do appear to be a legitimate...

Keeping an eye on the Birds going into final preseason game

Posted by Dany Sloan on September - 2 - 2010
Tonight’s final preseason matchup against the Jets will be one for the hardcore fans. The game, which begins at 8 at the Linc, will be devoid of all of the familiar faces. While you won’t be able to get your fix of Celek, Kolb, or DeSean, there will be plenty of important things to keep an eye on that will have an effect on the team as they head into their season opener on September 12 at home against Green Bay. With...

Impact playing for Team USA will have for Iguodala, Sixers

Posted by Mike Santa Barbara on August - 31 - 2010
When the Sixers took Andre Iguodala 9th overall in 2004, they drafted him in hopes he’d become the eventual face of the franchise. Since then the team has gone through it’s ups and downs. Now 6 years later, the future maybe now. Iguodala has earned a spot on the USA Basketball squad for the 2010 Worlds, something that could jump start his career. The opportunity to play with some of the NBA’s best young talent,...

Don’t measure the Eagles by the preseason

Posted by Dany Sloan on August - 29 - 2010
Taking too much stock in preseason football can make a pessimist out of even the most positive fan. This team has taken their lumps in many of the expected areas, and while the playoffs seem like a longshot this year, things are not all bad. The outcome of a season can never be based on the results of the preseason, especially when the starters only see action in six quarters over the course of four games. These games are...

Cornelius Ingram to get MRI on left knee

Posted by Dany Sloan on August - 25 - 2010
It wouldn’t be a preseason without an injury to tight end Cornelius Ingram, and almost like clockwork, he’ll be getting an MRI on his left knee this week. He missed several days of training camp and practice with a swollen calf and issues with this knee, and with an overall disappointing preseason, this almost seemed inevitable. This is the same knee that suffered an ACL tear while he was in college, and as well,...

Familiar woes among Eagles preseason problems

Posted by Dany Sloan on August - 24 - 2010
Lots of people have been talking about how bad the Eagles looked on Friday. After looking back at a few key moments and letting things fester for a few days, I agree…and disagree. The key issues remain some of the team’s classic, perennial issues – converting for a touchdown inside the redzone, penalties, and the offensive line’s inability to effectively protect the quarterback. While the team had...
Strictly looking at the score, last week’s preseason opener against Jacksonville was a win, but digging a little deeper, there are plenty of things the Eagles need to work on. While some of those issues may be new, many of them are long-standing ones that plague the team year-in and year-out. Tomorrow night’s matchup in Cincinnati against the Bengals will be the perfect place to address them. Phiadelphia’s...
