Polanco talks hyperextension, says it isn't major

Tuesday, March 15, 2011, 3:17 PM
Placido Polanco left today's Grapefruit League game against the Blue Jays after hyperextending his left elbow while swinging at a pitch from Jesse Litsch in the first inning. Polanco had the same elbow surgically-repaired this offseason, and while he said his current pain is in the same area, he does... Read more

Should the Phillies have tinkered with Dom Brown?

Tuesday, March 15, 2011, 12:34 PM
It's Week Three of "That's Baseball," where this week three drowsy and slightly hung over sports writers gathered at the Tiki Bar at Bright House Field on a beautiful Sunday morning and took about three hours to shoot a seven minute video. The big question debated by me, Phil Sheridan and Kevin Roberts... Read more

Yeah, so I think maybe Bill Hall and Cole Hamels need to form a sharing circle somewhere and talk about their feelings. Because there is a little bit of dissonance in their relationship. The two players had a bit of a confrontation in the second inning of the Phillies Grapefruit League game against... Read more

Amaro: No payroll space, rumors of trades "B.S."

Monday, March 14, 2011, 4:33 PM
I don't have any empirical evidence to support the following statement, but it seems like every time Ruben Amaro Jr. makes a statement claiming the Phillies are limited in their ability to take on payroll, it is shortly followed by a transaction in which the club does just that. It's what we heard... Read more

Projecting the Roster: Attempt # 2

Monday, March 14, 2011, 3:26 PM
A couple of weeks ago I gave my first projection of the Opening Day roster and said I would try to do the same each Monday for the rest of spring training. So, of course, I forgot to do it the next Monday. But it's Monday again, and anything of importance you can read elsewhere on the site, so let's... Read more

Stu - Stu - Stutes-io

Friday, March 11, 2011, 1:06 PM
Mike Stutes has impressed the Phillies coaching staff this spring. To the point where they have decided to keep him around for a longer look, despite sending most of the rest of his peer group back to the minor leagues. Justin De Fratus, Matthew Rizzotti, Cesar Hernandez, Harold Garcia -- all are on... Read more

Hawaiians Victorino, Sardinha not too concerned

Friday, March 11, 2011, 9:00 AM
The fascinating thing about the length of a baseball season is the narrative it forms. For six months, a group of men are essentially a family, travelling the country and playing games as the world spins around them. Today was one of those interesting plot points, as the two flat-screen televisions... Read more
