Chooch is Back at Citizens Bank Park; Howard is a Venture Capitalist; Utley is Still Doing Baseball Stuff; No One’s Heard From Rollins

Last night’s game against the Seattle Mariners was an interesting one. It’s not too often that baseball teams combine for 19 total runs. Hopefully, everyone bet the over on this one. The Phillies started off hot with four runs in the first. They held off the Mariners until the 3rd inning where they gave up two runs; followed by another three runs in the 4th. The Phillies answered back in the bottom of the 4th with five runs. The Phillies…

Phillies Win, and My Dumbest Photoshop so Far

Phillies Win, and My Dumbest Photoshop so Far

They did it! The Phillies won a baseball game. It might not be a big deal, but I couldn’t be happier about the win in extra innings against the Washington Nationals. Although, it did void my $0.50 parlay I had going for some baseball games yesterday; I am much happier with a Phillies win. Don’t gamble kids, but if you do, don’t bet on parlays. The Phillies were looking really bad in the last few games, and not just normal…

Rushed through this to save the listeners ears from power tools, therefore I accept no responsibility for sounding dumb about stuff. That last sentence sounded pretty dumb. Anyway. Enjoy.

Phillies Falling further under .500

Phillies Falling further under .500

The Phillies are falling further and further under the .500 mark. It is to be expected after a four-game series with the Chicago Cubs, but the disappointing thing is that the Phillies had two great opportunities in this series to walk away with wins instead of loses. The Phillies played good baseball yesterday, but they were no match for the defending World Champs. If I have one word to describe the Phillies overall game in yesterday’s afternoon match-up, I would…

depressing game recap

depressing game recap

I know what I said in yesterday’s post, but last night’s loss was so ugly that I need to discuss it. The Phillies did their best typical-Phillies impression and took an early lead, only to blow it in the sixth inning. The Phillies got off to a hot start in the first inning against the Cubs. They scored two runs before the Cubs split the lead with a run of their own in the bottom of the second. The Phillies…

Aaron “Literally Jayson Werth” Altherr

I don’t really want to talk about bad games, and last night’s Phillies game was certainly bad. You might be thinking, well, you are writing blogs about the Phillies, what did you expect? That’s true. Bad games are important to talk about, but if I do that with about half of 162 games, because I believe the Phillies will finish somewhere around .500, I will lose my damn mind. Instead of focusing too much on the 8-3 loss handed to…

Amphibious Joseph

Amphibious Joseph

That game should have never been played last night, but what am I complaining about? The Phillies beat the defending World Champions of baseball 10-2. The Chicago Cubs starting pitcher, Brett Anderson, was rattled in the first inning when the Phillies scored 4 total runs. Tommy Joseph is clearly some kind of amphibian due to his performance in the rain last night compared to his 0-8 on the road trip to the West Coast. Joseph hit a huge three-run home…

All My Readers Are Robots?

All My Readers Are Robots?

I’ve been thinking a lot about what I want my writing on this website to be. I want my content to have personality. I don’t want to just write game stories because most Phillies fans will get that content from the newspaper, maybe not the physical paper because my audience probably consists of other babies like me. I know I can’t compete with the giants of the sports industry, and that’s fine. My goal with Phillie Phan Addict is to…
