The Morning After

SOMEWHERE BETWEEN PHILADELPHIA AND WASHINGTON -- The Phillies trained down to meet their new ace late Thursday night. I'm doing the same right now, trying to catch my breath after a crazy week of rumors and roster moves. Needless to say, this is a dizzying time for these Phillies. Incredible what... Read more

Game 103 open thread: Introducing Roy (Again)

Friday, July 30, 2010, 6:18 PM
WASHINGTON -- When reporters were allowed in the clubhouse, we found Roy Oswalt seated in what usually is Jamie Moyer's locker at Nationals Park. He was chatting with old friend Brad Lidge. But most of Oswalt's new teammates have stayed away. It's an odd sort of circumstances. The pitcher is new to... Read more

Domonic Brown is here.

Domonic Brown, unplugged

Wednesday, July 28, 2010, 6:42 PM
He's here. He's wearing No. 9. And he's in the starting lineup, playing right field and batting sixth. So without further ado, here is Domonic Brown and his thoughts before his major-league debut: How nervous are you? I'm pretty nervous. But it's a good nervous. I'm excited to be here. Just trying...

Game 100 open thread: Skeleton Lineup

Tuesday, July 27, 2010, 6:30 PM
For just the second time this season, Charlie Manuel has filled out a lineup card that does not include Chase Utley nor Jimmy Rollins. The manager's entire middle infield is missing.

Get this: If the Phillies win today, they will have a five-game winning streak. The last time they had a five-game winning streak? The first week of the season when everything felt oh-so-cheery. Hard to believe, right? "No, not really," mused manager Charlie Manuel this morning. Consistency... Read more
