Myers: 3-4 month recovery if surgery necessary

Thursday, May 28, 2009, 9:52 PM
Barring an unexpected prognosis from hip specialist Bryan Kelly, Phillies righthander Brett Myers is headed toward hip surgery and a three-to-four month recovery. Should Myers undergo surgery to repair a torn labrum, he is optimistic that he could return to the field in time to participate in the playoffs... Read more

Kalas to be inducted into Wall of Fame

Thursday, May 28, 2009, 2:20 PM
The Phillies announced that Harry Kalas will be inducted posthumously into the team’s Wall of Fame on Aug. 7, at Citizens Bank Park before a game against the Florida Marlins. “When we started the Wall of Fame in 1978, the intent was to honor the great players in our history,” team... Read more

The arms (and bats) race

Thursday, May 28, 2009, 1:22 PM
We'll start this afternoon with a point of reference: The first major trade of 2008 came on July 7, when the Indians shipped CC Sabathia to Milwaukee in exchange for top outfield prospect Matt LaPorta, lefthander Zach Jackson and righthander Rob Bryson. But it is never too early to start talking... Read more

Nervous Myers will have MRI tomorrow

Wednesday, May 27, 2009, 11:21 PM
Brett Myers was visibly nervous about the hip injury that forced him from tonight's 6-2 loss to the Marlins in the sixth inning. The righthander will have an MRI tomorrow, at which point more should be known. He walked with a noticeable hitch in his gait in the clubhouse after the game. “I’m... Read more

Ibanez sixth -- Sixth! -- in All-Star voting

Tuesday, May 26, 2009, 5:57 PM
Raul Ibanez leads all National League outfielders in home runs (17), RBI (43), slugging (.750), runs (38) and his fourth in batting average (.345). But in All-Star voting, the Phillies left fielder is currently sixth. Ibanez has little more than half as many votes as Ryan Braun, who leads all NL... Read more

Post-game: Victorino, Helms, Paulino

Monday, May 25, 2009, 11:20 PM
It was an interesting baseball game, in that there were three key situations that may or may not have affected the outcome of the game. ***First, the Shane Victorino caught stealing in the ninth inning: It was Victorino's decision to go. The Phillies essentially give Rollins and Victorino a green... Read more

Mayberry in fold, Escalona sent down.

Friday, May 22, 2009, 11:22 PM
I'm sure you all know this by now, but the Phillies have called up John Mayberry Jr. He will join the team tomorrow. LHP Sergio Escalona was sent to Lehigh Valley. I'm in a hurry to hit the Jersey Turnpike, so I'll leave you with this quote on Brett Myers' pitch that he threw behind Derek Jeter's... Read more

Nice digs

Friday, May 22, 2009, 6:25 PM
I wasn't blown away by Citi Field. I can't say the same thing about the new Yankee Stadium. They did this place right, and somehow succeeded in making an ultra-modern ballpark feel retro. The most impressive aspect of the new park? It's got to be the giant video board in center field. The thing is... Read more

Mayberry out of line-up at Lehigh Valley

Friday, May 22, 2009, 3:33 PM
Still no word on who the Phillies will call up after tonight's game, but John Mayberry would seem to be a likely candidate. The outfield prospect, whom the team acquired from the Rangers this offseason for Greg Golson, is a right-handed power hitter who fits the mold of the player the Phillies will... Read more

Phillies win 12-5; post-game quick-hitters

Thursday, May 21, 2009, 5:43 PM
A few quick notes before I skedaddle to the airport for a flight home. . . 1) Charlie Manuel said the Phillies would not make a roster move before tomorrow night's game, but could make one before Saturday's game. Facing righthander A.J. Burnett tomorrow, either Matt Stairs or Greg Dobbs will DH. But... Read more
