Phillies take notice of Utley beaning; plus, Eaton update

Thursday, July 31, 2008, 11:32 PM
Though the Phillies did not react on the field last night, they certainly took notice of Nationals’ reliever Jesus Colome’s eighth-inning pitch that hit Chase Utley in the back. “The catcher set right in behind him,” Manuel said. “Yeah, he threw at him. No doubt about... Read more

A Trade Deadline Retrospective. . . and a Happ start?

Thursday, July 31, 2008, 4:00 PM
Lots of stuff to get to. Before I get into some of the details of the trade deadline negotiations, I thought I'd point out one of the most intriguing and bewildering developments of the day. General manager Pat Gillick said the Phillies were pondering an "adjustment" that would get J.A. Happ... Read more

The Latest on Feliz

Thursday, July 31, 2008, 2:35 PM
From Phils PR man Greg Casterioto. . . Phillies third baseman Pedro Feliz had an MRI on his back yesterday and was examined by team physician, Dr. Michael Ciccotti. He was then seen today by back specialist Dr. Todd Albert at the Rothman Institute at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, where he... Read more

ManRam not likely. . .

Thursday, July 31, 2008, 12:55 PM
Just three more hours to go before the trade deadline. Here's what we've got thus far: 1) Manny Ramirez is not an option, unless the Red Sox wrap him in paper, put a bow on his head, and give him away to the Phillies. The Phillies aren't just shooting down the Ramirez reports privately to the media... Read more

Where does Myers go from here?

Wednesday, July 30, 2008, 9:51 AM
We were sitting in the press box yesterday when a fellow reporter leaned over to me. Brett Myers was in the midst of pitching his seventh scoreless inning. In the second row of the press box sat us Philadelphia writers. Below us, in the first row, sat the Washington, D.C. contingent of media. The... Read more

Happ could start this season

Tuesday, July 29, 2008, 8:18 PM
Today's media session with Charlie Manuel was interesting, to say the least. The Phillies brought J.A. Happ up from Lehigh Valley, and I think most people assumed it was to be the left-handed reliever the team has needed for quite some time. But Manuel made it clear he looks at Happ as a starter,...

Feliz to DL

The Phillies have placed Pedro Feliz on the disabled list and recalled first baseman Mike Cervanek from Triple A. Feliz has not played since Thursday because of a lower back injury. Greg Dobbs, baseball’s top pinch hitter this season, will take over as the everyday third baseman. Dobbs, 30... Read more

Phillies make major announcement

Tuesday, July 29, 2008, 3:18 PM
Some big trade deadline news from One Phillies Way this afternoon. . . For the second straight year, Citizens Bank Park has been named the most vegetarian-friendly stadium in Major League Baseball. According to a press release distributed by PETA (I think it stands for People Eating Tasy Animals)... Read more

Phillies add Happ

Tuesday, July 29, 2008, 12:58 PM
As expected, the Phillies have added lefthander J.A. Happ to the big-league roster. He takes the place of Adam Eaton, who was sent to the minors yesterday. Happ is 7-6 with a 3.30 ERA for the Triple A Lehigh Valely IronPigs this season, allowing just 97 hits in 117 1/3 innings while striking out 127... Read more

Eaton optioned to minors

Monday, July 28, 2008, 11:08 AM
Another interesting roster turn just popped across the wire. Adam Eaton has been optioned to the minor leagues, paving the way for what should be the promotion of lefthander J.A. Happ from Triple A Lehigh Valley. Eaton has not been assigned to a specific classification because his schedule has not... Read more
