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 ...

Hamels pitches gem to help salvage series in Boston

Posted by Dany Sloan on June - 13 - 2010
After getting shelled early and often during the past two games, the Phillies needed their closer keep the Red Sox at bay on Sunday. Starter Cole Hamels did just that, keeping the potent Boston lineup quiet over the course of seven innings. The team ended the weekend on a high note, picking up a 5-3 victory. Brad Lidge pitched the final 2/3 of the ninth inning for his fourth save of the year, giving up just one hit and throwing...

Phillies’ bats on a tear headed into tonight’s duel of aces

Posted by Dany Sloan on June - 9 - 2010
Last night’s 10-8 win at home against the Florida Marlins was promising for a few reasons. After falling behind 4-0, the bats lit up in the bottom of the third. Ryan Howard stepped up to the dish with one on and sent the ball off into the massive sea of red and later in the the inning, Raul Ibanez knocked in another run to put the team behind. Ibanez would finish the night with four hits and giving fans enough reason...

DeSean Jackson needs to do his talking on the field

Posted by Dany Sloan on June - 7 - 2010
Despite DeSean Jackson’s great play in his first two seasons in the NFL, his gaudy numbers are not quite in the realm of elite yet.  With this in mind, one has to wonder why the All-Pro wide receiver is not showing his face in the voluntary OTAs this week.  According to the Inquirer, he’s in Atlanta and then will spend the rest of the week in his home of Los Angeles. All players, no matter their skill level,...

Eagles ink five draft picks, hope to address team needs

Posted by Dany Sloan on June - 5 - 2010
As the Eagles get closer to training camp, the complexion of this very young team is starting to become less murky. While there may be quite a ways to go, some of the team’s draft picks are starting to fall into place. Whether or not they make the team is still to be determined, but being that some of these guys address important team needs, they have a good shot at being in the picture for the regular season. Those...

Guest Post: Hop on the Wagon (If you haven’t already!)

Posted by Roman Zubarev on June - 5 - 2010
By: Joe Gallagher Hello, Flyers “fans” (that is if you really are one.) I’m Joe Gallagher. I‘m what some may call a bandwagon fan. (Gasp!) I’m not sure if that is a valid generalization. I mean, I do watch roughly 5 regular games a season and always, always (oh wait thanks, 2007) watch the playoff games. Now, whether or not I am a bandwagon fan I suppose is for you to judge. Do I have an unparalleled understanding...

Phillies hope bowling is the key to ending their slump

Posted by Kieran Kelly on June - 4 - 2010
The Phillies are slumping. Everyone knows it. The players, manager, fans and even the rest of baseball knows it. During their recent 2-8 run, the Atlanta Braves have gone 9-1 to take over first place and drop the Phillies 3 games back. While it’s still only the first week of June, being 3 games back is unfamiliar territory around here the past 2 seasons. Yesterday, Jimmy Rollins returned from his rehab in Florida to...

Todd Herremans sees foot specialist

Posted by Dany Sloan on June - 3 - 2010
We Eagles fans love to worry. The team gives up plenty of reason to have heartburn, and there are plenty of situations where we cause the problems ourselves. This time it’s very much the former. Offensive guard Todd Herremans has missed practice for the third straight day, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. He is in Charlotte meeting with noted foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson. Via his Twitter feed, Herremans...

Halladay tosses Phillies’ 2nd Perfect Game in 19,252 games

Posted by Kieran Kelly on May - 29 - 2010
We all knew Doc was good, but perfect game good? Damn. Roy Halladay threw the 20th perfect game in major league history in beating the Florida Marlins 1-0. Doc had been victimized by poor offensive outputs from the Phillies’ anemic offense his last few times out, and this time was no different. The Phils could only muster one unearned run in the third inning, but that was more than enough for Halladay. Halladay had...

Chicago vs. Philly – Clash of the Titans

Posted by Chris Shafer on May - 28 - 2010
13 years ago I was a 10-year-old. That was the year we cleaned up the East, beating each team 4-1 on our way to the Stanley Cup Finals. Then we ran into the beginning of the Detroit dynasty. We ran into Brendan Shanahan, Steve Yzerman, Sergei Fedorov, Larry Murphy, and Nicklas Lidstrom. The end result was a devastating sweep where we only managed six goals in four games. We’re a long way from 1997. We’re a long...

Five Phillies lead the All-Star voting after early results

Posted by Kieran Kelly on May - 25 - 2010
After the first round of results was announced for the 2010 MLB All-Star game, five Phillies were leading the way and would be starters in the Summer Classic if voting ended today. Chase Utley leads all 2nd baseman, as well as all vote getters. Utley has been one of, if not the, best 2nd baseman in the majors over the past few years, so this comes as no surprise. Placido Polanco is leading at 3rd base, which is kind of surprising...
