  • Ruf hardly a given for the 25-man roster

     
    As high as Charlie Manuel was on Darin Ruf last season and coming into spring training, it's hard to imagine him making the team if he keeps playing the way he has so far this spring. After a monstrous year......
  • Amaro admits Young not on base as much as he'd hoped; Halladay will get all the time he needs to get things figured out

  • NO NEW PITCHER YET ...

  • WORLEY COMING ... FOR ONE START

     
    The Phillies are giving the IronPigs a present this weekend. Vance Worley, who has been spectacular since going back up to the majors last month, will start for the IronPigs Saturday at Syracuse. Why? Because the Phillies have already decided that Cole...
