Park to miss 2-3 weeks with hamstring injury

Thursday, September 17, 2009, 4:42 PM
It had been a long day of treatment, rehabilitation and examination. And Chan Ho Park still had a team doctor to talk to. As he limped to his locker tonight around 6 p.m., his right leg nearly immobilized by a tight elastic wrap, Park appeared as dazed as he was when his right hamstring popped the... Read more

Werth's Historic Blast, Plus How the Rotation Sets Up

Thursday, September 17, 2009, 11:40 AM
I have today off. I had big plans. Do some laundry. Pack for a 10-day road trip that begins with a morning flight to Atlanta tomorrow. Fill out the health care enrollment form that was due two days ago. But then e-mailer Bob Volkert decided to hit me up with a question: When Jayson Werth hit his grand... Read more

Manuel: "Very concerned" about Park's hamstring

Wednesday, September 16, 2009, 10:30 PM
It was the last thing the Phillies bullpen needed, but they may have gotten it anyway in the seventh inning last night: after throwing a pitch that resulted in the final out of the frame, Chan Ho Park grabbed his hamstring and limped off the field. Manager Charlie Manuel said after the Phillies' 6-1... Read more

Dobbs returns, will his pinch-hitting stroke follow?

Wednesday, September 16, 2009, 5:00 PM
When Greg Dobbs first went on the disabled list with a strained calf he suffered running the bases in a 4-2 loss at Citi Field on Aug. 21, he wasn't expected to miss more than his 15-day stint on the DL. Nearly a month later, most of it spent rehabbing in Clearwater, Fla., the reserve third baseman... Read more

Lee vs. Halladay; postseason roster

Wednesday, September 16, 2009, 9:52 AM
A hodge-podge of stuff today: 1) Emailer Estep Nagy checked in late last night wondering how Cliff Lee's performance has stacked up against that of Roy Halladay since the trade. Coincidentally, both men were in action last night, with Halladay allowing two runs on 11 hits in six innings of a 10-4... Read more

Magic Number: 13

Tuesday, September 15, 2009, 8:43 AM
How did you spend your second-to-last off day of the Phillies' regular season? I spent it trying to calculate their magic number (numbers aren't my thing, although some of you would argue that words aren't either). With 20 games remaining in 20 days, it's that time. We here at High Cheese have avoided... Read more

Predicting the playoff rotation

Monday, September 14, 2009, 2:12 PM
The mere mention of the word playoffs to manager Charlie Manuel will prompt a lengthy soliloquy on how the Phillies are simply focused on making the playoffs. But after taking three out of four games from the Mets, and with 20 games in 20 days over the next three weeks, there is no reason why we, the... Read more

The Sermon on the Mound

Monday, September 14, 2009, 12:30 AM
He's going to take me out. That was Pedro Martinez's first thought. With two out in the eighth inning of a 1-0 game and the tying run on second base, he is going to take me out. "I didn't like it," Martinez said later. I'm not going to take him out. That was Charlie Manuel's first thought... Read more

Condrey feels ready, but will pitch in one more rehab outing

Sunday, September 13, 2009, 12:31 PM
Sometimes, the most difficult part of an injury is not the injury itself -- athletes are used to physical pain; they aren't used to being away from their teammates for two months, forced to follow the ebbs and flows from afar. When Clay Condrey first went on the disabled list with an oblique injury... Read more

Condrey could be activated as soon as Sunday

Friday, September 11, 2009, 6:13 PM
Well, the Phillies finally have some good news regarding their injury-depleted bullpen. Condrey, who has not pitched since July 22 after straining his oblique, was scheduled to pitch in a playoff game for Double-A Reading today. But because that game was rained out, the Phillies are hopeful that he... Read more
