Madson activated, Schneider starting

Thursday, July 8, 2010, 5:14 PM
Here's a stat that I find amazing: More than halfway through the season, the Phillies' bullpen has accumulated just 200.1 innings. To put that in perspective, the team with the next-fewest number of innings in the National League has 227. The National League average is 250 innings. This factoid is... Read more

Amaro: Phils will consider dealing off big league roster

Tuesday, July 6, 2010, 6:28 PM
Ruben Amaro Jr. had a few interesting things to say earlier this evening as he addressed the Phillies' search for pitching and infield depth. First, he said that he would consider dealing a player off of his big league roster if he felt it would upgrade the overall competitiveness of the club. "Obviously... Read more

Dubee on Happ, plus some other updates

Tuesday, July 6, 2010, 5:54 PM
For three innings on Sunday night, the Phillies felt J.A. Happ looked very much like the pitcher who finished second in NL Rookie of the Year voting last season. For three innings, they felt he looked like a pitcher who could use some more time to refine his game. They erred on the side of the latter... Read more

Happ could be headed to minors

Monday, July 5, 2010, 5:14 PM
No official decisions have been announced with regards to J.A. Happ's immediate future. But you definitely got the feeling today that the Phillies are going to err on the side of caution and send him down to the minor leagues. They could apply for an extension to his rehab stint. But Happ has options... Read more

Decision on Happ looms large

Monday, July 5, 2010, 2:13 PM
What we have here is an interesting situation. The Phillies think they need pitching help. They are willing to trade for it. And they have the ability to add a guy who went 10-4 with a 2.99 ERA and averaged more than six innings in 23 starts last season. Furthermore, that guy is chomping at the bit... Read more

Phillies trade market: Infielders

Friday, July 2, 2010, 2:33 PM
Now that we know the Phillies will be without Chase Utley for two months and Placido Polanco for three to four weeks, let's take a look at some of the players who could be available. I've included second baseman and third baseman, since Wilson Valdez can play either position until Polanco returns,... Read more

Utley out 8 weeks after surgery; Polanco 3 to four weeks; Manuel suspended

Thursday, July 1, 2010, 2:30 PM
There should be some interesting conversations echoing through the visiting executive's luxury box at PNC Park tonight. That's where manager Charlie Manuel, suspended for tonight's game thanks to a verbal altercation with an umpire earlier this week, will watch the Phillies' game against the Pirates... Read more

Would a trade for Dan Haren make sense for the Phillies?

Thursday, July 1, 2010, 12:43 PM
Three days from now is July 4, which is not only America's birthday, but the day on which Thomas Jefferson and John Adams passed away. I mention this mostly to impress you with my vast historical knowledge, but also because if July 4 is three days away, then that makes today July 1, which for me is... Read more

Utley reportedly needs surgery

Thursday, July 1, 2010, 12:38 PM
Phillies second baseman Chase Utley will need surgery on his thumb and could miss 5-6 weeks, according to a report from Peter Gammons, of the MLB Network. Utley was injured sliding into second base Monday night in Cincinnati. He returned to Philadelphia and was seen by hand specialist Dr. Randall... Read more
