But it could take a while before one of Papelbon’s new teammates offers to buy him dinner.

Jonathan Papelbon will be traded … somewhere

The Jonathan Papelbon saga is approaching its close. According to Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia, the unhappy Phillies closer will be traded this week to a still unknown suitor. You wouldn’t know it from the scorn lobbed Papelbon’s way, but he’s actually pitched quite well this season. In 39 2/3 innings, he’s pitched to a 1.59 ERA, punching out 40 and walking just...

Congratulations Phillies Fans, You've Survived the Worst of It

I was thinking about this after word broke that Cliff Lee was done for 2015, and probably retiring- Cliff Lee and Chase Utley are both likely to get their buyout checks this Winter, and not be a part of the 2016 Phillies. Next season is the end of the infamous...

5 Reasons The Phillies Second Half Could Be Fun

Aaron Nola. In his two professional starts Aaron Nola has shown that he has the ability to be a major league pitcher. He has demonstrated good command of his pitches and locates them effectively. More importantly, Nola has exhibited unbelievable poise on the mound. Many promising arms have toed the rubber and wilted under the pressure of big league game situations. Nola, after making...

Offense erupts to back Nola as Phills sweep Cubs

On a Sunday afternoon in late July in front of a sold out crowd, Ryan Howard homered and the Phillies’ offense scored 11 runs on 17 hits with a 22-year-old future ace on the mound, making only his second Major League start. It felt like 2006 all over again, except the 22-year-old was Aaron Nola, not Cole Hamels, and the sold out crowd was there to cheer on their hometown Cubs,...

Philadelphia Phillies’ invaluable asset: International pitching

The Philadelphia Phillies, a rather sentimental organization, were ranked Minor League Baseball’s twenty-fifth overall farm system according to Kieth Law. Although the ranking may suit Philadelphia’s lower-tier farm system well, I disagree with Law’s decision. Despite a lack of both depth and talent alike, Philadelphia has an assortment of impressive prospects. Other than...
