New York Yankees Should Target Phillies’ Pat Neshek for Bullpen Help

The Philadelphia Phillies are headed for another losing season and have some assets to trade off. Pat Neshek is one of them that will attract contenders. One team that should have an interest in the veteran right-hander is the New York Yankees, who as of late, could use some help. Good bullpen help is hard to come by, especially when you get towards the second half of the season. When a

Chase Utley: Former Phillies 2B Chasing Another Ring With Dodgers

Back in 2008, the Philadelphia Phillies won a World Series with Jimmy Rollins at shortstop and Chase Utley manning second base.

Cole Hamels: Does His No-Hitter vs Cubs Mean No Trade?

It has been over a year since the world knew that Philadelphia Phillies ace Cole Hamels was on the trade block. Since that time, Phillies GM Ruben Amaro Jr has taken a beating in the press and on the radio for the lack of movement on Hamels. Most teams claim it is because Amaro was asking for a king’s ransom in exchange for Hamels. Including 2-3 of the team’s top

MLB: Thanks To GM Ruben Amaro Jr, Phillies Have Few Options For Success

The Philadelphia Phillies are in complete disarray. They are among one of the worst team's in baseball, and have very few options when it comes to building for the future. The only hope of salvation comes from Cole Hamels and Ryan Howard, who might be able to fetch the team a decent haul on the trade market. Otherwise, there is little hope for this once proud franchise. The Phillies own

MLB: Maikel Franco The Future Of The Philadelphia Phillies

The Philadelphia Phillies are in dire need of a savior. The team has struggled mightily all season, and has fallen into last place in the N.L. East.

MLB: Washington Nationals Reassure Doubters With Latest Meltdown

Chad Fairchild Ejects Miguel Cabrera And Jim Leyland In Third Inning

It wasn't a good bottom of the third inning for umpire Chad Fairchild and Detroit Tigers third basemen Miguel Cabrera and manager Jim Leyland and nearly disastrous for Philadelphia Phillies starter Jonathan Pettibone. The inning started with a ground rule double for Alex Avila, Ramon Santiago singled putting runners on first and third, Austin Jackson worked the count full before taking a walk on a pitch that looked like a strike. Not a good situation for Pettibone a bases loaded situation with no outs against the
