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 ...
The Eagles fan meter is back! Unfortunately it isn’t all sunshine and roses in Eagles land despite a huge week 1 win over the Panthers. It is looking more and more likely that Donovan McNabb will not play this week, which means only one thing: IT’S KEVIN KOLB TIME IN PHILLY! I guarantee three-quarters of you just groaned/smacked your heads on your keyboard, but I’m actually somewhat excited to see what the...

Preseason game 2: “Let’s try this again.” edition

Posted by Chris Shafer on September - 17 - 2009
JVR spent all camp with Giroux and Briere but was switched to Carter's line in Detroit. (Image thanks to Neat1325) After getting going early thanks to an unassisted goal by James van Riemsdyk the Flyers got into penalty trouble. That’s always the issue right? Pronger had no penalties, and Hartnell had only the roughing/unsportsmanlike conduct double minor. The rest of the penalties were a cluster of guys trying out...

Phillies lose shutout, extend record, get the win

Posted by Kieran Kelly on September - 17 - 2009
The Phillies were one out away from their third straight shutout last night, but the Nationals got a two out hit to score a run in a game the Phillies ended up winning 6-1. The Phillies haven’t had three straight shutout wins in 40 years, and were oh-s0-close to getting it done last night. The Fightins’ let the Nationals hang around in a close game, and that usually equals bad things. They had a two run lead in...

Wednesday’s Worst: My Angry Rant at Roger Goodell

Posted by David Foley on September - 16 - 2009
Really Roger. You fined six Eagles for an endzone celebration today and fined Winston Justice for a helmet-to-helmet hit, but you conveniently fail to impose any justice whatsoever on the asshole who decided to crack Donovan McNabb’s rib like a hockey stick after he was already down in the endzone with the game well in hand. WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU?!? That’s it….that was worth $60,000 dollars...

Jeff Garcia to wear #9 with the Eagles

Posted by Kieran Kelly on September - 16 - 2009
Jeff Garcia has been down this road before. When he first came to Philadelphia, Garcia had to change from the #5 he’d worn his whole career because Donovan McNabb was firmly entrenched with the #5. He chose to wear #7. After leaving the Birds, he kept that number with Tampa Bay and with Oakland up until being cut. Now that he’s back with Philly, he has to change numbers yet again. Michael Vick, who also had to...

Phillies getting it done with pitching

Posted by Kieran Kelly on September - 16 - 2009
One of the perceived strengths of the Phillies the past few years has been its offense, and this year is no disappointment. The Phillies are 5th in MLB, and first in the Senior Circuit, in total runs scored. They’ve scored 720 runs so far with 2 weeks left in the season. The Fightins’ put up 799 runs last season. It doesn’t look like they’re going to better that number this season. That shouldn’t...

Camp impressions, Preseason tomorrow

Posted by Chris Shafer on September - 15 - 2009
Darroll Powe teaches everyone how to be a true rock and roll star. (Image Credits: everydayno36) The opening segment of camp is over. Tomorrow begins preseason as the Flyers travel out to Detroit to do battle in the Joe Louis Arena. We hardly ever beat the Red Wings in their arena, in fact we haven’t since 1997. Then again it is preseason so who cares? Most of us are just interested to see who is where in the lineup...

Andrews put on IR, Vick Taken off Exempt List

Posted by David Foley on September - 15 - 2009
The Eagles made a few moves today with pretty significant consequences. Firs they moved Shawn “Big Kid Baby” Andrews to the IR, despite the fact that the team hinted he was medically cleared to play. Such an incredibly frustrating situation considering Andrews has Pro Bowl talent but he mental capacity of a fifth-grader. Some are saying this is a big blow to the Eagles but to be honest the offensive line has been...
