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 ...

Giroux’s Birthday Bash as Gagne-gate heats up and Stevens returns

Posted by Chris Shafer on January - 12 - 2010
Giroux adds a goal on his 22nd birthday in a blowout home win for the Flyers against the Dallas Stars. Flyers Devastate Dallas on Giroux’s Birthday There’s plenty for the Flyers to smile about on Giroux’s 22nd birthday. The talented, young playmaker scores his 10th goal of the season as the orange and black win a one-sided affair on home ice against the Dallas Stars. For the first time in over a decade, 14...

Change has got to come for Sixers

Posted by Mike Santa Barbara on January - 12 - 2010
Wins are nice, and whenever the Sixers can manage to string together a little winning streak they’re even better.This is still not a good team, nor is it a team that’s “one piece” away from contending. At the beginning of the season most people thought this team was good enough to compete for perhaps the 6th spot in the East. Though, here we are nearly mid-way through January and the Sixers have 12...

Pens telecast caught cheating

Posted by Chris Shafer on January - 10 - 2010
Perhaps one of the most dangerous precedents in hockey history has been started by Gary Bettman’s “model franchise.” You know, the same one that was about to move to Kansas City due to fan base disenchantment, ended up drafting in the top two selections four years in a row, and eventually won a Stanley Cup last year after some questionable “good luck” throughout the playoffs? Yeah that’s...

Eagles roll over and play dead

Posted by Dany Sloan on January - 10 - 2010
If the past ten years weren’t so good for the Eagles, then maybe tonight wouldn’t have hurt so badly. If the Eagles didn’t play worse than they did in week 17, then maybe tonight wouldn’t have hurt so badly. For last night’s Wild Card weekend playoff match-up, it was a repeat of week 17 with the Eagles back in Dallas. While the Birds came out onto the field with every intention not to repeat the previous week’s...

Wild Card Weekend: Eagles expected to fight in do or die game

Posted by Dany Sloan on January - 8 - 2010
For those of you into numbers, here are some to consider: This season, the Eagles were 11-1 against teams not making the playoffs and 0-5 against teams in the playoffs. The Cowboys have not won a playoff match since 1996, while Andy Reid is a perfect 7-0 in playoffs openers during his decade-plus tenure in Philadelphia. When the Eagles return to Dallas for their 8 pm match-up against the Cowboys on Saturday, expect a much...

Hats off to the officials

Posted by Chris Shafer on January - 7 - 2010
Meet NHL official Don van Massenhoven. You know him from such games as the last game of the 2008-09 regular season against the Rangers. Sometimes in the NHL it’s a very hard thing to stay competitive. The salary cap evens everything out even more. You have to stay on your toes, and you need a group of guys to bring a ton of heart onto the ice every night. Say what you want about the Flyers’ lack of heart and energy...

Dan Appreciation Night at the Wach

Posted by Chris Shafer on January - 6 - 2010
Dan Carcillo was certainly the rock star for the Flyers' first home game of 2010. Few words could describe the whooping the Flyers put on the Maple Leafs tonight. Perhaps, all you need to say is, “Old time hockey,” but that wouldn’t be entirely fair. Wednesday Night Throwdown met a quick trip to the Red Light District as the Flyers netted six. Leighton had 32 shots against and only let in two thanks to another...

Best of the Decade – 76ers

Posted by Dany Sloan on January - 4 - 2010
This past decade began with the highest of highs for the Sixers, but ended with a dwindling fanbase that mostly ignored the antics of a terrible team. The return of Allen Iverson hasn’t even been enough to get people interested in a unit with few bright spots. While the end of the ‘00s have left us fans with little to cheer about, the decade as a whole has seen some great play on the court and the superhuman efforts...

Eagles embarrassing in their worst performance of the season

Posted by Dany Sloan on January - 3 - 2010
The Eagles put on a truly terrible display today. Almost nothing good can be said about today’s 24-0 loss to the Cowboys, except maybe that losing today is better than next week. This was the worst game of the season. What didn’t the Eagles do well? The easy answer is everything. The team’s offensive line was terrible – exposing Donovan McNabb to four sacks and precious few moments to throw to receivers. A likely...

Week 17: Eagles take on hated rivals for division crown

Posted by Dany Sloan on January - 1 - 2010
In a stroke of pure scheduling genius, the Eagles travel to Dallas on Sunday to face the much-hated rival Cowboys in what is easily the most important game of the season. The victor gets the NFC East title, and if the Eagles win, they’ll get a first round bye as well. Dallas would need Arizona and Minnesota to lose to get the same placement. A lot has been made about the Cowboys ineptitude in December, and while the numbers...
