Philadelphia Phillies relievers are on the hot seat

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Phillies Sports Illustrated CoverIt wasn’t a typical Roy Halladay start on Friday against the Houston Astros, going only six innings, but more true to form, he did limit the opposition to just one run on five hits. However, it took a walk-off victory to give the Philadelphia Phillies their first win in what many think will be another march to the World Series. And with a widely-publicized rotation that features Halladay, Cliff Lee, Roy Oswalt, and Cole Hamels (not to mention the best fifth-starter in baseball, Joe Blanton), who would argue?

Cliff Lee signs with Philadelphia Phillies, creates best rotation ever

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB,

Cliff LeeThe Philadelphia Phillies may be the first team in history to go 162-0. In a stunning turn of events, Cliff Lee, the offseason’s most sought-after free agent, has opted to return to Philly to join Roy Halladay, Cole Hamels and Roy Oswalt in the starting rotation. We’ve seen phenomenal threesomes in the past, but a group of four like this comes around once a generation. Hamels may be the number four starter on this team, which is incredible, considering he’d be an ace for half of the other teams in baseball.

Philadelphia Phillies beat Cincinnati Reds and cruise through opening round

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, MLB, Playoffs,

Roy HalladayWhen people predicted that the National League’s best offensive team might threaten the two-time NL defending champions, they were sorely wrong. The Phillies swept the Reds in what turned out to be a pushover for a divisional series, sweeping Cincinnati in three straight and celebrating with champagne in the locker room afterwards.

After an unexpectedly slow start to the season, the Phillies have turned their fortunes around and are making a strong push for a playoff berth and not even a slew of midseason injuries seem to be slowing them down. In fact, as more players go down, the team as a whole appears to become strong in subsequent games.

Philadelphia Phillies J.A. Happ: Trade Bait or Keeper?

Posted by Adrien Griffin Categories: Athletes, Injuries, MLB,

J.A. HappJ.A. Happ is all over the place lately. The Phillies will likely lose 47-year-old starter Jamie Moyer to the disabled list with an elbow injury, and Happ seems to be the most likely candidate to replace him, but Happ’s name has been linked with several other teams that he’s been shopped to, including the Houston Astros, because the Phillies have shown interest in Roy Oswalt and are willing to part with last year’s NL Rookie of the Year runner up.
