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 ...

Union stays unbeaten at home with a stoppage time goal

Posted by Kieran Kelly on May - 16 - 2010
After winning their home opener against DC United, the Union went back on the road and, quite simply, didn’t play very good soccer. Red cards all over the place forced the U to play a man down in a few of those matches. They just looked like the young expansion team that they are. Yesterday, the U finally came back home for their second game against FC Dallas in their “Where’s Waldo?” kits. While Dallas...

Flyers sign goalie Sergei Bobrovsky

Posted by Chris Shafer on May - 15 - 2010
Midway through the Boston series, I got some very good news. The news of course was that the Flyers had signed Russian goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky. Since I assume most people reading this won’t know much about him, you can consider him the KHL’s version of Vokoun. He has been languishing on one of the worst KHL teams (it was an RSL team his first year) for three seasons. Bobrovsky’s Metallurg Novokuznetsk...

The Team that Defied the World

Posted by Chris Shafer on May - 15 - 2010
Game 82 of the 2009-10 season: the Philadelphia Flyers earn a seventh seed and a playoff birth after one of the most nerve-wracking regular seasons in recent memory. 12 games and 8 wins later, they’re still in it. And you’ll absolutely have to excuse my absence of articles during this entire series. You don’t mess with fate. After all, it wasn’t hard to get caught up in all of this. We weren’t...
First hinted at yesterday by Meech over at The Fightins, the June 25-27 series between the Phillies and Blue Jays has been shifted from Toronto to Philadelphia due to security and congestion issues around the Jays’ home field at the Rogers Center. Confirmed today by MLB, Phillies beat writer Todd Zolecki has the deets. Toronto will be the “home” team and will bat last in the 3 games. The DH will also be...

Union to face Celtic on July 14th at PPL Park

Posted by Kieran Kelly on May - 11 - 2010
In a release sent out this morning, the Philadelphia Union announced that they will be playing a friendly against Scottish Premier League club Celtic F.C. on July 14th in Chester. This match will take the place of the previously announced match against Spanish club Valencia C.F., which backed out of the agreement that had been in place. There had been talk of both clubs paying the Union, but Celtic is the only one scheduled...

Gload finally makes an impact for the Phillies

Posted by Kieran Kelly on May - 11 - 2010
Ross Gload was brought in by Ruben Amaro this offseason in an effort to upgrade the bench a bit. He was supposed to fill the role that the Bearded Wonder Eric Bruntlett occupied last season. Provide some depth in the infield & outfield and be a pinch hitter off the bench. Gload hadn’t really contributed much so far this season, which can be attributed to him only getting limited opportunities to do anything. That...

Eagles announce 2010 preseason schedule

Posted by Dany Sloan on May - 10 - 2010
We already know when and where the Eagles will be playing in the 2010 regular season, but courtesy of the team’s official site, the preseason is now laid out for us as well. Things kick off with a “Fight Night” on August 5th at 5pm at the Linc. Check out highlights from last year’s event here. Dear Stew Bradley – please be careful. We’d like to see you in the Pro Bowl this year. The team...

Hamels, bullpen finish off Braves for the series win

Posted by Dany Sloan on May - 9 - 2010
When Cole Hamels regressed in 2009, it was like much of the city forgot about where he had led the team just a year earlier. Due to a combination of bad luck and a limited arsenal of pitches, he wasn’t the same pitcher last year, and much of the city let him hear it. While Hamels hasn’t been untouchable this year, he’s shown flashes of the ace pitcher that he can be against two quality teams – St....

Pitching shines during series win against Cardinals

Posted by Dany Sloan on May - 6 - 2010
After embarrassing the Mets’ two best pitchers last weekend, the Phillies welcomed the pitching-rich St. Louis Cardinals into town for a series that was billed as a match-up between two likely playoff contenders. Making his first start since returning from an oblique injury, Joe Blanton pitched a decent game, but coupled with silent bats and a bullpen that couldn’t stop the bleeding, the Phillies dropped the opener...

Mini camp breaks with “sense of the unknown”

Posted by Dany Sloan on May - 3 - 2010
In an interview with ESPN yesterday, newly minted starting quarterback Kevin Kolb had an air of confidence about the weekend’s mini-camp, but he also countered it by saying that there is a “sense of the unknown” around this year’s team. The man’s observations are correct. Despite the return of big names like DeSean Jackson, Brent Celek, Trent Cole, and Stewart Bradley, this new edition Eagles...
