  • MARTINEZ IN IRONPIGS LINEUP; CISCO, SAVERY JOIN BULLPEN ...

     
    Michael Martinez is in the IronPigs lineup at shortstop, which means Michael Spidale won't be quite so lonely on the bench for tonight's game with Rochester. Spidale was the only position player on the bench in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Red Wings....
  • Manuel adamantly defends his eighth-inning decisions

     
    Even before Antonio Bastardo stepped on the mound, the outrage had started. It got worse with each passing moment. The boos began when Bastardo, on in relief of Cole Hamels, who was pulled after allowing one run on three hits......
  • Ryan Howard Rehab

     
    It's always exciting when a major league star comes through the minor leagues on a rehabilitation assignment. My favorite was Pedro Martinez, who pitched for the IronPigs as he tuned up for a comeback with the Phillies. We later saw......
  • Phillies Garage Sale

     
    Today is supposed to feature a new "What Is It?" but the Phillies shakeup -- which also affected the IronPigs in a big way -- is so fresh that I decided to go with that instead. I'll post "What Is......
  • Bullpen doing its part

     
    Phillies relievers may have been the weakest link earlier this season, but in the last three weeks, they're been doing more than their fair share. In the last 19 games (since July 20), the Phillies bullpen has posted a National......
  • Phillies win, but Manuel pulls Rollins from the game

     
    There's no doubt Charlie Manuel is unhappy with Jimmy Rollins. The Phillies manager pulled his shortstop after the lack of effort he displayed on the bases in the bottom of the sixth inning of their 3-2 win over the Mets......
  • Philling in: A recap of a late night at Citizens Bank Park

     
    On Wednesday night I attended the Phils-Reds game at Citizens Bank Park as a paying spectator. It was a good, crisp, fast-moving game. I was in my car by 10:20 and in my driveway by 11:40. At 11:40 on this night, a night when I was pinch-hitting for Mandy...
  • VICTORINO PLACED ON DISABLED LIST

     
    The Phillies today placed All-Star centerfielder Shane Victorino on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 4, with a ligament sprain in his right thumb, the team announced. To fill his spot on the 25-man roster, the Phillies recalled infielder........
  • You make the call --- a reliever or a bat.

     
    The word is the Phillies are seeking a reliever. Really? I don't get understand why. This team was ousted from the postseason last year because their offensive numbers in the postseason (and for much of the regular season) were not......
  • WHY NOT FONTENOT...?

     
    If I was Mike Fontenot, I'm not sure I' would've been in a very good mood on the 90-minute bus ride from Indianapolis to Louisville Thursday afternoon. All he's done done since joining the IronPigs is hit .319 in 14 games, with six doubles and six RBIs....
  • Qualls surprised Philly wanted him

     
    Chad Qualls got a warning from his wife when the Phillies called him during the offseason. “She said, ‘You know you don’t have that good of numbers in Philly?’” She was right. Qualls, who signed a one-year, $1.15 million...
