  • Bullpen making strides, showing promise for 2014

    PHILADELPHIA — I've heard the Phillies bullpen called many things this season, none of which were pleasant. Most, in fact, weren't even printable. For the first five months of the year, many of those descriptions seemed justified. You didn't have...
  • Who's your pick for Phillies' best reliever since The Vet opened?

    Who's your pick for Phillies' best reliever since The Vet opened?
    If you have bled Phillies red for decades, I guarantee there are two images forever etched in your mind: • Tug McGraw's tossing of his glove after striking out the Kansas City Royals' Willie Wilson to end the 1980 World Series. • Brad...
  • Amaro assesses the 2013 club and explains why he didn't make any trades

     
    As Ruben Amaro Jr. took a seat in the Phillies dugout to talk about the deals he didn’t make before today’s 4 p.m. trade deadline, he actually seemed content with what had transpired. Much of the speculation surrounded Michael Young,......

    Talking baseball while wondering how the Blackhawks can overcome the Patrice Bergeron face-off factor. 1. The White Sox don’t play the Tigers until July. Could Jesse Crain be closing games against his old team when the teams meet in Detroit before...
  • Dodgers phenom Puig deserves to be All-Star

    Major League Baseball makes its call on Yasiel Puig on Saturday, and it should be an easy one. The Dodgers' Cuban sensation deserves to be a National League All-Star, even if he has played only 30 games in the big leagues. It's no surprise that some...
  • Crain seems good fit for Tigers

    No strong team needs relief pitching more than the Tigers. No reliever is hotter than Jesse Crain. Don't be shocked if Crain is closing games against the White Sox when the teams meet in Detroit before the All-Star break. When general manager Rick...
  • Phil Rogers' MLB power rankings

    1. Cardinals (2): They entered last week two games behind the Pirates and ended it tied for first place in the NL Central. Played just well enough to sweep the Marlins. 2. Tigers (4): Vaunted lineup was clicking last week — 49 runs in seven...
  • Phillies neither in, nor out

    The situation the Phillies are in isn't nearly as bad as it appears. It's hard to be down on a team that has won five of its last six series and is just 6 1/2 games out of first place in the National League East and 5 1/2 games out of the second wild...
  • Kendrick wins the stare down

     
    Kyle Kendrick and home plate umpire Dale Scott had a little stare down in the sixth inning. With two on and one out, Kendrick thought he had struck out Mike Carp with his 0-2 offering. Instead, Scott called the pitch......
  • Manuel gives some credit to Dom Brown

     
    Some notes and stats to take in.... Kyle Kendrick's nine-game winning streak over the Marlins is tied for the second-longest active winning streak against one team in the majors (Roy Halladay's 10-game winning streak over the Orioles is the longest).........
