Shane Victorino said he doesn't want to press charges, but he wants the right guy apprehended and held responsible for the beer-throwing incident that marred the Phillies' 12-5 win over the Cubs Wednesday night.

Martinez in line for victory; Mixed results in Phillies debut

Wednesday, August 12, 2009, 10:28 PM
Pedro Martinez saw a little bit of everything in his first start as a Phillie: An eight-run inning from his offense, a no-out bases-loaded jam in his final inning, and a cup of ice thrown from the bleachers at Wrigley Field that struck his center fielder in his face. All in all, it was an eventful... Read more

Chi-Town, Day II

Wednesday, August 12, 2009, 4:37 PM
To many of us who follow and cover the Phillies, Pedro Martinez is a fifth starter, one who the club hopes will improve upon the production Jamie Moyer provided out of the slot. But to the rest of the country, he is still very much a gate-worthy superstar, something I realized today as I watched ESPN... Read more

Moyer: "Disheartened" and "mis-led"

Tuesday, August 11, 2009, 5:44 PM
Jamie Moyer did not take any questions. He was not interested in discussing his new role in the bullpen. He simply had some things he wanted to get off his chest. In an off-the-cuff statement that lasted several minutes while sitting in the stands at Wrigley Field, the veteran lefthander said he felt... Read more

Chicago, Chicago

I believe in Karma. And days like today are the reason why. Over the past couple of weeks, I have seen the worst of this country's summer weather. From 115 degrees and dry in Arizona to 55 degrees and damp in San Francisco, to mid-80's and sticky in Philadelphia. It turns out, the reward was this:... Read more

The Mother of All Press Releases? Martinez, Moyer and more

Monday, August 10, 2009, 5:00 PM
Well, the press release that just landed in my inbox doesn't lack for fodder. We'll cover the nuts and bolts first, then deal with some analysis. Pedro Martinez will make his Phillies debut on Wednesday at Wrigley Field. To make room for him in the rotation, the club has informed veteran lefthander... Read more

What the rotation might look like

Sunday, August 9, 2009, 5:10 PM
I've edited this post since yesterday, flushing out some details after watching G-Love kick it at Festival Pier last night. I'm really surprised the Phillies didn't announce their rotation yesterday, but it gives us another day to guesstimate. Here is what I believe to be a logical projection of the... Read more

MRI exam for Romero

Sunday, August 9, 2009, 12:35 PM
Phillies lefthanded reliever J.C. Romero has returned to Philadelphia and will have an MRI exam Monday on his strained left forearm. Romero, on the DL since July 23, never got through his scheduled inning Friday night during a rehab appearance at Class A Clearwater when the rains hit. He threw just... Read more

Amaro: Happ's not going out of anywhere

Thursday, August 6, 2009, 12:11 PM
General manager Ruben Amaro Jr. said today that lefthander J.A. Happ will remain in the Phillies rotation for the rest of the season, and raised the possibility of a six-man rotation that would utlilize both Pedro Martinez and Jamie Moyer as starters. "Happ's not going out of anywhere,"... Read more
