  • 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......

  • 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....

    I've been reading and hearing a lot of grumbling about the moves the Phillies made Tuesday to promote Freddy Galvis and Carlos Rivero to the IronPigs for the last month of the season while they're fighting for a playoff berth. You can bet those two, along...
  • Phillies, Polanco holding their breath

     
    Instead of Placido Polanco having his MRI today in L.A., the team decided to fly him home Sunday so he could have it in Philly today. The last thing the Phillies want is their All-Star third baseman to miss significant......
