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 ...

Line shifts as break ends for Flyers

Posted by Chris Shafer on October - 15 - 2009
Mika Pyorala moved to center as Flyers return to action. (Neat1325) Flyers are done with one long break, but there’s another one right around the corner. After tomorrow night’s game in Florida there is yet another rest period for the team before a home match-up against the Boston Bruins. These breaks have been crucial for a couple of injured players on the roster though. James van Riemsdyk has been given a chance...

What We’ve Learned About the Eagles Through Four Games

Posted by David Foley on October - 15 - 2009
After five weeks of the 2009 season the Eagles are 3-1 and have already had to face their share of adversity. While their strong start has been encouraging, there are some signs this team may not be as good as we think they are. Without further ado, here’s a breakdown of the good, the bad, and the ugly so far for the Birds. The Good - Desean Jackson may have had a slow Week 5, but on the whole he has been everything...

Phillies’ World Series number is down to 8

Posted by Kieran Kelly on October - 15 - 2009
It’s been a long 3 days, but baseball is finally back. The Phillies are set to begin the rematch of last year’s NLCS tonight against the Dodgers, only this time, it starts in LA. That just makes it better for the Fightins, because now they’ll be able to win the series at home. Cole Hamels has had a full week off with no travel so he should be fully rested and ready to go tonight. He needs to do better than...

Brian Westbrook: Underrated?

Posted by David Foley on October - 14 - 2009
SI.com posted a players’ poll about who the most underrated players in the league are. Surprisingly, Brian Westbrook made the list at #8, getting 2% of the votes. A few things to ponder: first, how the hell is Drew Brees underrated? (He was #2 with 5.8% of the tallies.) The same people who think Brees doesn’t get the recognition he deserves also think the media doesn’t do a good enough job kissing Barack...

Don’t look now, the Sixers are 4-0 (in preseason)

Posted by Mike Santa Barbara on October - 14 - 2009
Guess what? The Sixers are 4-0 in the preseason. I know the Eagles are 3-1 and looking good, and the Phils are headed back to the NLCS, but it couldn’t hurt to give some love to the redshirts could it? The Sixers improved to 4-0 in the preseason with a 93-85 victory over the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden Tuesday night. Thaddeus Young continued to impress, finishing with 26 points. The Sixers also had 4 starters,...

Revenge best served cold, Phillies in the NLCS

Posted by Kieran Kelly on October - 12 - 2009
In rallying from 2 runs down with 2 outs in the top of the 9th inning in Colorado, the Phillies finally got revenge for the sweep the Rockies laid on the Phillies in 2007. The Phillies are heading back to the National League Championship Series for the second straight year against the Los Angeles Dodgers. These two teams have met 4 times previously in the NLCS, with each taking two, the Phillies taking the last two. Cliff...

As Shane Vic would say, “F*ck yeah Phillies!”

Posted by Kieran Kelly on October - 12 - 2009
This Phillies team sure has a way with words don’t they? After Chase Utley uttered the unforgettable “World f*cking Champions!” after last season’s World Series parade, Shane Victorino stepped up to the plate to give us the 2009 version of WFC. In the top of the 9th, with Ryan Howard at bat, Jimmy Rollins at 3rd and Chase Utley at 1st, RyHo hit a fly ball to center that was deep enough for Rollins to...
