Lopes misses Philly

Monday, June 6, 2011, 6:12 PM
If you were wondering whether there are any hard feelings lingering over Davey Lopes departure from Philly, the answer is no. A resounding no. The former first base coach exchanged a hug with general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. and spent a significant time during pre-game laughing heartily with the Phillies... Read more

Where have you gone, Ryan Vogelsong? A few thoughts (OK, more than a few)

Monday, June 6, 2011, 2:57 PM
Last year, Ryan Vogelsong helped teach me an important lesson. It was the first week of spring training. The position players who were sure bets for the Phillies roster had only begun to trickle in to Clearwater. The weather was chilly, and the hot water in my apartment was not working. I mention that... Read more

Everything you need to know about what we don't know about the Phillies debt

UPDATED, 10:47 p.m.: I corrected my math on the Broncos' rate. I had 125 basis points being .125 instead of 1.25. I'm sure most of you had the same reaction after reading about the Phillies' current noncompliance with Major League Baseball's debt service rule on Friday. I know this because I had the...

Maybe it's Martinez

I just filed a story for tomorrow's paper breaking down the various options to open up a roster space for Shane Victorino. By the time I was done writing it, I was convinced that parting ways with Michael Martinez is the best option. . . But the Phillies might decide they are better off keeping both... Read more

A few reasons why Domonic Brown was not in the line-up today

Wednesday, June 1, 2011, 3:13 PM
Charlie Manuel does not like having to explain the reasoning behind the managerial moves that he makes, particularly when he feels like the questioner is challenging him. "Because I'm the manager and that's what I wanted to do," is one of his favored responses. I think this hurts him when it comes... Read more
