Rollins headed for MRI, Werth OK

Monday, April 12, 2010, 7:20 PM
News regarding the two Phillies regulars who left today's game with injuries, some of it positive, some of it not. . . First, Jayson Werth downplayed the hip injury that forced him from today's 7-4 win over the Nationals prior to the sixth inning. In his second at-bat, the right fielder felt the hip... Read more

Rollins scratched with right calf strain

Monday, April 12, 2010, 3:51 PM
The first week of the season went swimmingly for the Phillies. The second week, however, is off to a rough start, as short stop Jimmy Rollins is not in the line-up today, having been scratched just before the first pitch thanks to a calf strain he suffered while running in the outfield. No word on... Read more

Updates on rotation, Romero

Friday, April 9, 2010, 6:49 PM
Nothing earth-shattering to report from Houston, where lefty J.A. Happ is preparing to make his first start of the season. Manager Charlie Manuel said the Phillies would likely keep their rotation in order through the off day on Tuesday, meaning Kyle Kendrick will get another start against the Nationals... Read more

Figueroa arrives, Carpenter departs

Thursday, April 8, 2010, 2:53 PM
Two games into the 2010 season, and the bullpen carousel is already spinning. Nelson Figueroa arrived from his own in Arizona via a red eye flight early this morning. A half hour ago, Andrew Carpenter changed into a black suit and wheeled his luggage out of the Phillies clubhouse, set to join the rotation... Read more

Blanton ahead of schedule

Wednesday, April 7, 2010, 5:36 PM
Thus far, there have been no red flags in Joe Blanton's recovery from a strained oblique. The veteran righthander played catch today, one day earlier than the Phillies had initially hoped, throwing 60 balls from 60 feet at between 60 and 75 percent effort. Blanton, who strained the muscle in a bullpen... Read more

Phillies find some decent depth in Figueroa

Wednesday, April 7, 2010, 2:06 PM
It appears as if Andrew Carpenter's stay with the Phillies will be a short one. The right hander, called up to serve as the long man in the bullpen on Opening Day, is likely headed back to the rotation at Triple-A Lehigh Valley now that the Phillies have claimed veteran righthander Nelson Figueroa...

Washington still in recovery mode from Philly invasion

Wednesday, April 7, 2010, 10:11 AM
True story. I was living in Tampa, Fla. in the autumn of 2006 when the Eagles arrived in town to play a game against the Buccaneers. The weekend ended with Matt Bryant kicking a 62-yard field goal as time expired to give the Bucs a 23-21 victory. A healthy contingent of Eagles fans was in town that... Read more

Observations: Bastardo, Herndon, Halladay, Fans, More

Tuesday, April 6, 2010, 9:52 AM
It has been said many times that baseball is a game of failure, yet for seven innings yesterday it was difficult to find any flaws with this team. Every member of the line-up, Halladay included, had a hit. New third baseman Placido Polanco not only drove in six runs, but started a 5-4-3 double play... Read more

Roster set: Herndon, Bastardo, Kendrick all get spots

Sunday, April 4, 2010, 4:43 PM
The Phillies roster has essentially been set for more than a week, but it wasn't made official until a few moments ago. David Herndon, a Rule 5 pick from the Angels who has never played about Double-A, and Andrew Carpenter, a 2006 second-round draft pick out of Long Beach State, are the only players... Read more

Predictions: Why the Phils will win the World Series, and why I'm wrong

Sunday, April 4, 2010, 12:42 PM
I was sitting in a hotel room in Fort Lauderdale when my phone rang. It was December, 2007. Earlier that day, I had made the four hour drive across the state to do a feature on the Miami Northwestern football team, which was playing Tampa's Plant High in the Class A state title game. In case you haven't... Read more
