Season's end comes for this Phillies team today



How often have we seen emotion from the Phillies this year? Not much at all


On Friday, the Phillies were shutout for the 15th time in this 2013 season, that had to be an all-time low for this team, last night the Phils managed to win 5-4 over a Braves team that needed to win for home field advantage in the playoffs. The Braves committed 3 errors on the night and couldn't get that win that would have given them a nice cushion to start off the Division Series.

More importantly for the Phillies is that they have a chance to finish at .500 against the NL East with a win on their final game of the season. The Phils were 33-39 in their own division last year, and now sit at 37-38 for this year, the Phillies have not had two back to back seasons in which they finished under .500 in their own division against the NL East since 1995-1998 when the Phils did that all four years.

That's putting a lot into perspective when you look at those stats above in relationship to how poor this team is becoming. It isn't a fluke now that the Phillies have been mired in awful play now for two straight seasons, with virtually no end in sight.

The Braves showed the angry side last night a little, and why not, why not get mad at not being able to make a hit or get on base, the Phillies need a little fire under them, it's going to be a long offseason, but for the Phillies it is mercifully here after today.

Phillies fans should be angry with this team now



Ricky Bottalico sums up the Phillies game last night vs Atlanta - no offense



Cliff Lee goes out and strikes out 13 batters and the Phillies offense is the same as it's been all year, terrible.

That's it, it's about all we should take as fans of this team, forget about all the talk of 'next year' and see you in 2014, this is getting absurd now. This team is in need of fundamental and major changes and nothing all of the publicity spinners say is going to make that fact go away with this now horrible Phillies team.

The Phils management brings up Ryan Howard for the last few games and has him sit on the bench to watch the games. What is this? Is it supposed to get us excited about the Phillies by seeing Ryan Howard? Howard should have been healed a long time ago with his injuries that he's getting all to used to being on the bench or some other location like Florida spending time rehabbing. If he's going to spend the rest of his career rehabbing we should trade him for free to a team like Mariners or somewhere like that far from Philly.

The facts are that the Phillies are the most disappointing team in baseball for two years straight now, and the team is a total failure that should really be getting a major overhaul starting with the GM of the Phillies, Ruben Amaro Jr., who has sat idly by as this team has degenerated into the state that it's in today.

A team with a payroll like the Phillies have had in the past two seasons is a big disgrace with the kind of play that we've been seeing on the field. There is no more explanations that can describe it, except it is just plain bad.

Start with Amaro, and clean house for the Phillies and begin again.

GQ Magazine lists their 20 Worst Sports Franchises of All Time - Did they miss Atlanta?






GQ has revealed its list of  “The 20 Worst Sports Franchises of All Time” in its October 2013 issue, on newsstands now. For the list, GQ considered any and all professional sports franchises—currently active or not—and identifies the top twenty most inventively awful, disappointing, frustrating, and mismanaged teams in sports history.


From the disgraceful Los Angeles Clippers (#4) to the self-destructive New York Jets (#6) to the historically helpless Philadelphia Phillies (#14), the teams on GQ’s list are ones that have caused or continue to cause their fans the most agony. 

Topping the list is every sports franchise based in Cleveland, a city which—between the Browns, the Indians, and the Cavaliers—“last celebrated a title four years before LeBron’s mother was born.”


Read the full article and find out why each franchise made the list at GQ.com:  http://www.gq.com/entertainment/sports/201310/worst-sports-franchises-teams-of-all-time?mbid=gqpr#slide=1


It could have been worse news for Philadelphia, but I think the Phillies are kind of coming off of those 'bad' lists... let's not forget that game in Atlanta that the fans totally disgraced themselves and their city following a single 'bad call'. An infield fly was called in the first photo below in Atlanta and then the trash reigned down on the field in something that's never even been done on a Phillies field that I can remember. Maybe the Braves franchise got a pass for this one.

Bad calls mar Phillies loss






One of the worst calls of the season last night in Miami as shown on the FightinPhillies 'super slow mo' gif above had a lot of people really wanting instant replay. It's calls like this that make you wonder why this wasn't brought in years ago.

In a separate call in  the same half-inning, the Phillies are redeemed by another bad call, but one that Phillies fans didn't really complain all about, it was that 'out' nod by CB Bucknor at first base that said it all.


That's some of the human drama that may be missing next year as some instant replay is fazed in, imagine a 4 hour game with instant replays, that could happen as it takes time for the umps to convene and check the videos if they are going to do it like they presently do.Instant replay will definitely take a lot of the 'human element' from this game.






Leyland helped into the shower by Spiderman






A teary eyed Jim Leyland was speaking about the Tigers overcoming the odds to make it back to the playoffs this year, just as he was about to shed a tear though, Torii Hunter stormed in and took Leyland for a champagne shower, it doesn't get any better than playoff baseball.

Leyland celebrated his 700th win with the Tigers with him being manager, and they have finished in 1st place in their division for the past 3 years now.

Meanwhile in Miami, the Phillies lost again. They lost a series to a team that has lost 100 games this season, go figure, just when you thought it couldn't get any worse.

Amaro confident about keeping Ruiz and Halladay



         Talk on CSN Philly about keeping Halladay and his health


"I don't know what the future is going to hold, but I want to go somewhere that wants me and somewhere that is going to have a shot." 


 "Like I've always told you guys, I hope that's here. Worst case scenario, I start throwing and things aren't happening the way they're supposed to. Then I'm going to be honest with whoever's interested and make a decision from there."

Those were the words from Roy Halladay a day after he had to be pulled from the Marlins vs Phillies game in the first inning in Miami. His doctor told him that he needed rest, about 3 weeks rest to be exact and now that's what Halladay will be getting as he is truly finished for the season.

The Phillies hold the keys to a 4th year option to Halladay at another $20M, he just collected a cool $60M from the Phillies for his pitching services for 2011 though 2013. Would resigning Halladay make sense for the Phillies?

Ruben Amaro Jr. seems to think that keeping Halladay is a priority. A seasoned veteran that has brought a lot of great things to Philadelphia, Halladay is also a lock for a spot in the Hall of Fame as well and Hall of Fame type pitchers aren't that easy to find, so the Phillies may not be totally wrong in keeping Halladay.

Carlos Ruiz is another player that has played well enough for the Phillies to consider giving him another contract. Ruiz is coming off of his 4 year contract that paid him $13.35M. You have to figure Chooch to look for at least $15M for a 2 year deal that will probably take him to the end of his career.

Keeping Chooch shouldn't even be talked about, it should have just been done. A catcher is supposed to be carrying a team, and at times that is what Carlos has done for the Phillies through all of the trouble with Ryan Howard being out so much in the past couple years.

Phillies Out of Town and Out of the Money for 2nd Straight Year





 It's always bad when the Phillies don't make the playoffs, and this is now the second year in a row for this team not making the postseason. The graphic above shows up the NL race as it continues, with the NL Divison winners and more.

You can really say that it is a major disappointment this year for the Phillies, especially with the payroll that this club carried all year, and with the players that the Phillies have been picking up all year. It hasn't been a good year, despite the Phils still attracting over 3 Million fans, not 3,000 fans as Mr. Chase Utley announced to a stadium full of fans, what was he thinking? Anyway, the home schedule is done for the year, and only 7 more games remain for the Phillies.

Roy Halladay pitches for the Phils in the first game of the Marlins series, he should get his last start of the year in Atlanta on Saturday.

It's Ryno!




The Phillies made it official today before the game with the Mets, Ryne Sandberg will be the manager of the Phillies officially now.

Talk about the Phillies looking at other candidates after the season are now moot, and the Phillies have locked up Ryne, who is a Hall of Famer, for 3 years with a club option for a 4th year.

Now Ryne can go ahead and plan out the people that will be on his staff. Larry Bowa has been one of the people that rumor has it may be in line for a position of the coaching staff. The existing coaching staff will probably be replaced, as that is what normally occurs when a team changes managers.

Time will tell as the talk about next year has totally replaced what we're seeing on the field now, and it's a good thing because the Phillies aren't playing too good in this series with the Mets and they look to Cliff Lee to go out and salvage this series this afternoon on the last home game of 2013 for the Phillies.

Matt Harvey shows NY Media wears him down, on Dan Patrick






The Mets star Matt Harvey was a guest on the Dan Patrick show yesterday. It was a radio interview that seemed to be going along just fine until all of a sudden Harvey seemed to fall to pieces and tell Patrick that he was finished talking about his arm and he was only wanting to pitch a  promotion by Qualcomm.

It was a really awkward moment that came off sounding really strange.

Harvey of course is the Mets future superstar who recently found out he has a torn UCL, Harvey was the starting pitcher in the 2013 All-Star Game in New York, and he is 24 years old, and he sounded like someone who is only 24 yesterday on the radio.

Perhaps he should pick and choose how he handles endorsing or promoting products better though, on a national radio show, this didn't sound too good.

The Phillies welcome in the Mets on Friday night for the final three games at home in Philly. Cole Hamels will be on the mound on Friday and of course Sunday is Fan Appreciation Day.

Thoughts turn to 'Next Year' For Phils








You could feel it in the air at Citizens Bank Park last night, the hype, the buzz, and the enthusiasm for this team was not present. You could also look around and see a lot of empty seats around the stadium as well.

With only less than two weeks in the Phillies season, the thoughts have naturally turned to next year.

Hard to believe but it's only 11 more games left for this team in 2013. Around this time of year for many years in a row, was 'who are the Phillies playing in the  playoffs.' Not this year, and of course it wasn't that way last year.

Two years in a row that this team was supposed to be accomplishing great things and it's a duplicate performance in a very disappointing year.

The same things that were 'wrong' with the Phillies are the very same problems that they still have. The bullpen, though lately fairly dependable, has been a source of constant pain for the Phils along with a very unstable outfield.

Mike Adams (at $5M for 2013 and contracted for $7M in 2014) was brought in for Spring Training, he could have been damaged goods right from the start, if the truth is known. He went out on the DL on June , that may have been a good thing as he only pitched 25 innings for the Phillies and went 1-4, and giving up 5 HR. Had he been healthy, who knows maybe things would have been different. Adams is no youngster though at 35 years old.

Despite the early season struggles of this team this year, that isn't what did them in. By the All-Star Break this team looked like it was turning itself around. Then it was the disaster after the break that did them in.

From July 19th, when the Phillies played their first game back after the All Star Break, to August 17th, the team could only manage to win 4 games out of 26 games or a winning percentage of just .154 - it was a downward spiral that they would never recover from.

What do we expect next year? Without certain changes, we could possibly be looking at the same stagnation. Things do change though and you can probably bet that the Phils will be making many changes in the off-season that they didn't make at the All-Star Break.

Halladay wins final home Phillies start - He made dreams come true for Phillies fans


This was Doc last night in Philadelphia - thanks for the memories!



Tonight was bittersweet.

All I could think about heading to the ballpark tonight was that I couldn't believe this could be the end for Doc Halladay and his Phillies home career. It appears that this is exactly what it was though.

The memories came on too fast, the Perfect Game in Miami against these Marlins on May 29th 2010, the first Perfect Game for the Phillies since Jim Bunning did it in 1964, well before a lot of us, including this writer, were even born.

We got to see greatness that night, it was only the 20th time that a Perfect Game was thrown and  happened in Major League history.

Halladay wasn't done either in 2010, for good measure he tossed a no-hitter against the Cincinnati Reds in Game 1 of the NLDS. It was only the second time in all of baseball history that this was done.

Halladay would say after the Reds game:

“It’s surreal, it really is,” Halladay said. “I just wanted to pitch here, to pitch in the postseason. To go out and have a game like that, it’s a dream come true.”

Roy Halladay wanted to come to Philadelphia to win, the get a championship and bring it home once more for the Philadelphia fans, and of course to call himself a World Series Champion.

That particular dream may have escaped Halladay in Philadelphia, if he really isn't coming back here in 2014. Tonight was probably his last start ever at home in Philly, if it is true that he won't be back here for another chance.



Halladay is a champion though, he's a Hall of Famer, for sure. A winner, a battler, and a great baseball player. He could have mailed in the last few months and even sat out, but he's not like that, he's going to give you his all. That's what the fans in Philly really love about him.

I watched after Roy's night was done on the mound tonight, he left the game with a 6-1 lead. Right after he got the final out, which was a pop-up, many fans left their seats as well, they were there to see one of the best pitchers that the game has known here in Philly, he may be gone and they were gone.

Losing Roy Halladay now for the Phillies has really hurt, it's left a mark. The great years really may be over. All of the winning, the sellouts and the cheering happy crowds. There's no crying in baseball, although my eyes are full of water, I just can't let the tears fall.

Roy Halladay's years with the Phillies from 2010 not including last night's win his 55th as a Phillie:

Lee manhandles Marlins for 14th win of 2013



Cliff Lee has been the mainstay of the Phillies rotation in 2013



Cliff Lee has been my favorite Phillies pitcher for the past couple years. He was magnificent in the 2009 World Series, and has done a lot for the Phillies team since Ruben Amaro Jr. re-signed him after sending him out to the god forsaken Seattle Mariners, in what was the first ever weird move that Ruben has made with this Phillies team under his watch as GM.

Lee is a 12 year veteran in 2013, he's risen up to one of the best paid pitcher's in baseball today at $25M this year. In his only other start this year against the Marlins prior to tonight, Lee owned them giving up only 3 H on 9 IP and struck out 5 for an .056 ERA against them.

Did I mention that Cliff Lee had 4 RBI last night with 3 H? He is on top of his game for sure. The Phils pummelled the Marlins 12-2 in game 1 of the series with the Miami Marlins.

In Lee's starts prior to tonight, he's stuck out 9 batters and 10 batters respectively and 14 more batters on Monday night. That's 36 strikeouts in his last 3 games.

To put it bluntly, Cliff Lee is dealing. The Phillies offense came to life for him tonight and Lee earned his 14th win of the year. This writer thinks he could have been over 20 wins this year, had the Phillies offense fired on all cylinders.

If the Phillies can just solve the problems that have plagued them prior to the starts of the 2012 and 2013 seasons, they would be able to contend in 2014. The dream of this isn't completely over. There is an offseason and we will have some interesting players to chose from in the offseason to solve the puzzle.

One of the players that Ruben Amaro Jr. was inquiring about many times has been one of the Miami Marlins best players, Giancarlo Stanton. Miami has been reluctant to deal him. We'll see if this changes anytime soon, Stanton would be awesome to have in the Phillies lineup and would inspire many to think that the Phillies have made a great acquisition to this team.

Unfortunately, the Marlins are dead last in every category in the MLB that ESPN uses to measure the offense. Runs, Batting Average, On Base Percentage, and Slugging Percentage, the Marlins are 30th in every category. Stanton can only benefit by joining a team that will compliment him and help him achieve more.


Miami's anemic numbers

Phillies failure must point to Amaro Jr. now




Amaro Jr. and staff hasn't found the winning combination of players for the Phillies



Charlie Manuel is long gone, and the Phillies are still playing baseball the same way that they have all year.

Yes, Ryne Sandberg is getting a chance to skipper this team, but like Manuel, he's not a miracle worker. On any given night, this Phillies team slips back to that bad team that we've seen a lot of already. The Phils lost the series with Washington yesterday, getting beat 11-2 in the process.

What does this all add up to? The remaining players on the team were all assembled by Ruben Amaro Jr., and he should start to accept a major part of why the Phillies aren't doing too well, and haven't now for the past two seasons.

The Phillies organization were spending a lot of money and they still are. Not that spending money can equate to the quality you get on the field, but a lot of positions on this team haven't been filled by players that are up to the task of bringing a playoff caliber team to the baseball diamond.

The Phillies bullpen was terrible all year, it is staffed primarily of minor league call up pitchers, and they haven't done the job for the most part. Nothing was done to improve this at the All-Star break, and the outfield has been a non-stop source of players that aren't playing at a particular position too much and getting bad results in doing so.

Players that made an impact in baseball have been traded, players that may should have been traded were not, and all of this is adding up to the Phillies not coming close to the postseason in two years has to add up to failure for Ruben Amaro Jr. who inherited a Cadillac of a team a few years ago, and now is running it into the ground.

Phils even series with Nationals; End Nats 7 game winning streak



It seems so long ago that Werth was on the Phillies, doesn't it?



The Washington Nationals are fighting for a chance to be one of the teams that make it into the playoffs this year. In the beginning of the season, the Nats were favorites to win the division in the NL East, but things didn't go their way and that didn't happen.

Just for the record, the Phillies were officially mathematically eliminated from the playoffs on Saturday, it's something we knew was going to happen and with the math adding up against them, it now is impossible for the team to make any playoff appearance for the second year in a row.

The Phillies are able to play spoiler and last night, they did just that. Behind a strong appearance from Cole Hamels, the Phillies were able to hold on to a 5-4 lead after being up on the Nationals by a 5-1 score until the bottom of the 7th inning when the Nationals scored 3 runs and threatened to break the game open in their favor. The Nats could only get within 1 run and the Phillies bullpen was able to close the door on the Nats, who were red hot in winning their last 7 games straight.

For the Phillies, they won this game but they are still struggling mightily in producing runs, the team is 28th overall in the MLB with the Phil's OBP (On Base Percentage) being .306 which is 26th in the MLB, that of course has been the biggest problem with Phillies this season.

The Nats only have a 2 percent chance to make the playoffs, for them they just have to keep on winning. Jayson Werth has the team high batting average high at .321 for the season, Desmond, Span, and Zimmerman are all right behind him all at .280 or better. That is the kind of batting you need to win ballgames.

Consider the Phillies top hitters, Chase Utley leads the Phillies with .276 in 427 AB, Chooch has a slightly higher average at .292 but he only has 277 AB on the season. It gets worse from there, as the Phillies have been moving people around in so many different positions this year, it's hard to say who plays where, even now.

The Phils will face a Nationals pitcher tonight that has the most wins in the NL at the moment, which is 17. Jordan Zimmermann is leading the NL and he's going against a pitcher for the Phillies that desperately needs to show some positive things for himself, Tyler Cloyd.

Tyler Cloyd was supposed to be a highly touted pitcher for the Phillies, and what we've seen from his so far hasn't been to spectacular. His last outing against the Padres saw him give up 7 ER, in just 4 innings. He looked promising in his first two starts this season which goes back to May 10 and the 21st, but since then, he's been up and down with a 2-4 record and a 4.56 ERA

Lee wins 13th - Halladay to start tonight




Roy Halladay could be down to his last 2 home starts - will be on the mound tonight


Cliff Lee notched his 13th win last night for the Phillies, on a solemn day that a lot of us still remember very vividly. That of course being September 11th, and the anniversary of the attack on the World Trade Center and America. Hard to believe 12 years have passed since that day, and it is something that should never be forgotten.

Baseball grinded to a halt some 12 years ago for a week while flights were grounded and a lot of people wondered 'what was coming next.' No one was thinking about baseball right after the attacks happened, but it was baseball that helped a lot of us get back to some sort of normalcy after the terrible events that took place.

I remember going up to New York to see a game on an anniversary of September 11th a few years ago, it was very moving and still very fresh in people's minds, especially a lot of people in the New York City area, which was devastated with losing thousands of people to the terrorist plot.


Tonight it's Roy Halladay in what could be one of his last home starts in a Phillies uniform. Hard to believe that Halladay's time may already be up with the Phillies, the team does have a $20M option that they could pick up, but it appears unlikely that they will do that especially with Halladay's age and the injury he is coming off of.


Upcoming Phillies milestones: 


Jimmy Rollins needs 1 more HR to give him 200 career HR's 

Cole Hamels needs 2 more wins for 100 for his career, and 9 more SO for 1,500 career strikeouts

Jonathan Papelbon needs 17 more saves for 300 career

Phillies 'Go To The Dogs' against Padres

A happy fan and her dog on 'Doggie night' at CBP last night


The Phillies went to the dogs last night, literally. It was 'Take Your Dog Out to the Ballpark' night last night and a good time was had by all the pooches and their owners with that promotion. It was the first time that the Phillies did that promotion, despite this being a very successful promotion in many other ballparks over the years. 

Well the doggies were sitting very nicely in their seats, and then the Phillies started playing like (excuse the term) dogs on the field. It was hard to believe that this was the same team that beat the Braves in 3 games straight just a few days ago. Time off for the Phillies is a really bad thing, it seems like they return from a day off and then don't want to play. In fact, look at the All-Star break, there was a few days off for this team and they really didn't play well when they returned to the diamond.

The final score last night was 8-2 and the Padres earned their 66th win of the year, which is the same amount of wins that the Phillies have so far. Padres' pitcher, Andrew Cashner, fanned 7 Phillies batters and allowed only 2 runs on the night. Tyler Cloyd though just couldn't get the rhythm going for himself, it seems that he may follow the trail of Ethan Martin, who now is relegated to the bullpen. 

Roy Halladay's start is pushed back to Thursday, that's a good thing because it's going to be close to 100 or more with the heat index. Cliff Lee goes tonight for the Phillies, he is undoubtedly the best Phillies pitcher this year. Cliff is looking for his 13th win of the season.
