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 ...

Eagles let one slip away at the Linc

Posted by David Foley on November - 9 - 2009
After completely dismantling the Giants, the Cowboys seemed to be a lesser test at home for the Eagles. Instead, it’s another miserable Monday for Philly fans as we’re left to sift through the wreckage of what once looked to be a Super Bowl contender. Ok, I’ll admit that’s a pretty melodramatic way of seeing things. That was a game the Eagles could have and should have won, but like so many other...

Inside Seaport Drive 11/9/09

Posted by Zolo the Trollo on November - 9 - 2009
Union Warm Up Chester PA – Big news and some rumblings out of the Union home today.  No, not the TWU, the Philadelphia Union.  The club announced two pieces of news through separate releases.  First,  longtime US Youth National coach John Hackworth will be joining the club as Peter Nowak’s #1 Assistant.  Hackworth was instrumental in developing an Academy program for the National level youth players, served...

10 things the Phillies can look forward to in 2010

Posted by Kieran Kelly on November - 9 - 2009
Image from @MixMastaB First off, I’d like to apologize for my absence over the past week. The loss to the Yuckees ended the season, and I just needed a break. I’m back now, and will be all over anything Phillies related up until Spring Training starts back up again. There have been season recaps of the 2009 Phillies all over the place. I didn’t want to interrupt my break for one of those, so I decided to...

Emery big as Flyers win fourth straight

Posted by Chris Shafer on November - 7 - 2009
Ray Emery has been a big part of the Flyers' current winning streak. (Neat1325) Emery gets his 9th win of the season at home against the St. Louis Blues as the Flyers improve to 9-4-1 on the year. The four game winning streak that has come with Emery between the pipes hasn’t been a one man show, but the Flyers controversial goaltender has played his way off the NHL headlines with solid performances in net. Tonight...

Your Eagles-Cowboys preview

Posted by David Foley on November - 7 - 2009
The last time the Eagles faced the Cowboys it was a one-sided 44-6 beatdown that sent the Birds to the playoffs. I’d be surprised if we saw a similar butt-kicking tomorrow but the way the Eagles have been playing lately it’s hard to know exactly what to expect from this team. When the Eagles have the ball: Dallas’ secondary is mediocre at best, so don’t be surprised to see Donovan McNabb taking his...

Sixers squeak past winless Nets; Brand sits majority of game

Posted by Mike Santa Barbara on November - 6 - 2009
With the win-less New Jersey Nets playing with out Yi Jianlian, Chris Douglas-Roberts and Devin Harris this figured to be a cake walk for the Sixers Friday night. It wasn’t. It was a seesaw game and the Sixers were able to battle through 22 lead changes, for a 97-94 victory. Louis Williams continued his impressive start to the season finishing with a team high 18 points. Elton Brand only played a little over 18 minutes,...

Temple WINS! Penn State, Villanova with pivotal games

Posted by Kevin McGuire on November - 6 - 2009
Kevin from NittanyWhiteOut and Examiner is back to offer his thoughts on this weekend’s local college football action. The Temple Owls now have the same record as Ohio State. Read that sentence again. Temple and Ohio State have the same record. At least for one more day. Temple needed a late field goal to pick up their seventh straight win and stay atop the MAC East division last night. Temple defeated visiting Miami...

Welcome back Philadelphia, the Flyers missed you

Posted by Chris Shafer on November - 5 - 2009
Rookie and Calder hopeful, James vanRiemsdyk, seen fighting for the puck during a home thriller against the Bruins, has been a pleasant surprise this season. (Flyers Photos) Well, Philly. You’ve been very busy lately. That much is obvious. The Phillies may not have repeated, but there’s certainly plenty of baseball to excited about in 2010. For now though, it’s time to say farewell to the boys of summer,...

Lou Williams taking advantage of starting opportunity

Posted by Mike Santa Barbara on November - 5 - 2009
First on GM Ed Stefanski’s “To Do List” last off-season was hiring a new head coach. In a very close second was figuring out what to do, if anything, with point guard Andre Miller. Popular opinion was that Miller would cost too much money to keep around on a team that wasn’t ready to compete in the East. Then again, there was a shortage of options to replace him as well. While the front office mulled...

My thoughts on the Sixers/Celtics; plus first PP NBA Power Rankings of the season

Posted by Mike Santa Barbara on November - 4 - 2009
Alright, so the Sixers are 2-2 a week into this young NBA season, and they’ve won and lost the 2 games most people would have predicted. Losing to perhaps the top 2 teams in the Eastern Conference, the Magic and the Celtics. While beating the Bucks and Knicks, who both seem destined to finish in the Eastern Conference basement. In both losses they showed that they can grow into a better team. The Sixers had early leads...
