San Francisco, Day 2: Mathieson surgery, etc.

Saturday, May 10, 2008, 3:04 PM
Good morning, Day 2 in San Francisco. No paper tomorrow, so you'll have to rely on the inter-web for your Phillies fix (I guess you could check out one of the other paper's too, but who'd want to do that??) Word out of the ballpark today is that Scott Mathieson will likely have a third surgery on... Read more

How much does Rollins mean to this team?

Saturday, May 10, 2008, 2:10 AM
Just got back upstairs from the Phillies clubhouse, and I've got to say, that place is positively giddy. I think a lot of times we as sports writers get a little too corny with our attempts to place unwarranted psychological significance on certain events. A lot of times in baseball, it simply comes...

He's baaaaaaack

Friday, May 9, 2008, 6:24 PM
Jimmy Rollins was indeed activated from the disabled list and will start and leadoff in tonight's game at San Francisco. Shortstop Brad Harman was sent back to the minors. Rollins rolled into AT&T Park about an hour ago. . .wearing street clothes and carrying his duffle bag. Rollins, who has... Read more

San Francisco!

Friday, May 9, 2008, 2:16 PM
Touched down in San Francisco an hour and a half ago. Getting ready for tonight's match-up between Cole Hamels and Pat Misch. I've never been to the ballpark here, but I heard it's nice. Jimmy Rollins is here. Well, not here, exactly. Like, he's not standing in my hotel room reading over my shoulder... Read more

Introducing. . .Stephen Randolph

Thursday, May 8, 2008, 2:51 PM
Series finale here in Arizona, and I thought I'd kick it off by giving you guys a little more info on Stephen Randolph, the lefty reliever the Phillies acquired this morning from the Houston Astros for a player to be named later. . . It doesn't sound like Randolph is in the big league club's immediate... Read more

Phillies trade for lefty reliever

Thursday, May 8, 2008, 10:27 AM
From Paul Hagen: The Phillies, who are openly searching for a lefthanded reliever, have acquired Stephen Randolph from the Houston Astros for a player to be named later. There are reasons to believe that Randolph, 34, could soon join J.C. Romero as the second lefty in the bullpen. He has a 1.23 earned... Read more

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the best hitting of them all?

Wednesday, May 7, 2008, 6:18 PM
I was bored yesterday, so I walked around the clubhouse throwing out this scenario: Two outs, bottom of the ninth, tie game, runner on second. Which Phillies pitcher would you send to the plate? Hey, it isn't the most hard-hitting journalism you'll ever read, but I figured with the hot-hitting... Read more

Eaton: I (derogatory term for mess)'ed up

Wednesday, May 7, 2008, 12:55 AM
Three words. First: Second word rhymes with: Third word: That's what Adam Eaton says he did in walking Randy Johnson on four pitches, sending home a run in the fourth and turning what could have been a bases loaded, two out situation into a bases loaded one out situation. The D-Backs took... Read more

Howard sits

Tuesday, May 6, 2008, 9:45 PM
Interesting decision by Charlie Manuel tonight to put Ryan Howard back on the bench. Talked to Howard briefly prior to batting practice, and he obviously disagrees with the call, though he tried to be diplomatic about it. “To me, you want to be in there, you want to play,” said the first...

Rollins to play at Single A Clearwater Tomorrow

Tuesday, May 6, 2008, 5:44 PM
Jimmy Rollins continued his recovery from a sprained left ankle, going 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI, two walks and two runs scored. He also stole a base, which is a good sign considering base-running has been his biggest concern over the past couple weeks. Rollins will play at Single A Clearwater... Read more
