Don't know if there are any other Phils fans here. But it's here to discuss our Phils.

Good win yesterday. Polanco hit a 3 run HR and Victorino had the game winning HR.

Looks like the Phillies are well on their way to a 5th straight NL East title...Their four Aces won't win every game but they should win most series. Even with Chase out the Phillies are hitting and scoring runs. Valdez has done a nice job at 2nd. Looking forward to the series in San Diego. Just need the Flyers and Sixers to step it up.

Phils are playing good ball right now. Flyers are in a tough one with the Sabres, and I'm just hoping the Sixers can win a game because I don't see them coming back in the series.

Oswalt looked sharp in his start.

Roman529
04-22-2011, 05:43 PM
Yeah Oswalt had a no hitter going through five innings. Schneider hit a huge home run...it's always nice when a former Met's player can help us out. The Sixers need a big man who is tough and can rebound. Like that college guy (Sullinger) out of Ohio State. Maybe one of those twins who play for Kansas?

I wish either of them would be around when the Sixers pick, but I highly doubt that since the Sixers will be picking around 16-18. In terms of the Phils, I can't wait to see how Hamels pitches tonight.

Cole looked great tonight. A 2-run triple by Howard leads to a 2-0 Phils win. Nice.

PhinsPhan11
04-23-2011, 11:09 PM
Blanton had a solid start tonight. 7 innings, 2 runs, 3 K's. Hopefully the Phils can pull it out.

PhinsPhan11
04-23-2011, 11:20 PM
2 run double by Howard puts the Phils up 4-2. Nice.

Phils win 4-2.

PhinsPhan11
04-24-2011, 06:43 PM
Strong performance by Halladay striking out 14. We got just enough runs to win 3-1 and get the 4 game sweep.

PhinsPhan11
04-25-2011, 11:47 PM
Couldn't generate any offense and lose a tough one to the D-Backs 4-0.

Roman529
04-26-2011, 11:14 PM
Oswalt didn't have a good night. I guess it was his turn to struggle. Raul Ibanez is batting .175 and they keep sticking him in Left Field. It sucks losing to a team like the DBacks. At least the Flyers won their Game 7 against Buffalo.

PhinsPhan11

That was a great game. Flyers handled them after the first period. On to the next round. I definitely think it's time to find someone to put in LF because like you said, Ibanez is struggling.

Solid start by Hamels today getting a solid 8-4 win.

PhinsPhan11
04-29-2011, 10:22 PM
Great start by Worley and a couple HRs and 6 RBIs by Howard leads to a 10-3 victory over the Muts.

PhinsPhan11
04-30-2011, 03:54 PM
Halladay pitches a complete game and we get just enough to beat the Mets 2-1.

PhinsPhan11
05-04-2011, 10:29 PM
Nice 7-4 win over the Nats today.

Tough 5-0 loss to the Braves today. Lee had a great game, I think he struck out 16.

Phils win 3-0. Great job by the bullpen.

Phils play the Braves tonight with Hamels on the hill. Let's hope Cole can have another great game.

PhinsPhan11
05-08-2011, 11:29 PM
Tough 5-2 loss tonight. We couldn't get any offense going for Cole.

PhinsPhan11
05-09-2011, 11:12 PM
Solid 6-4 win over the Fish tonight. We had much more success on offense today than we did against the Braves yesterday.

PhinsPhan11
05-10-2011, 10:08 PM
Tough loss to the Fish tonight. Halladay pitched a good game along with Johnson. We just couldn't generate any offense against one of the best pitchers in the NL.

Roman529
05-10-2011, 11:28 PM
What a crappy loss to the Marlins. Halladay can't get any run support. They loaded the bases against Josh Johnson early on with no outs and didn't score. I knew this would come back to haunt them and it did. Phillies lose 2-1. Still in first place, but we have to win these close games and put up more runs. Sardinha and Schneider are so sorry compared to Carlos Ruiz. Our play from our 2nd baseman also has been poor. Martinez, Valdez and Orr are not even a poor mans Chase Utley. Oh well.....on to tomorrow.

We definitely need Ruiz back. He is a solid hitter at the catcher position. We are still playing well, and we got Lee going tonight.

Great comeback win over the Fish. Rollins delivers the 2 RBI single, and the Phils take two out of three from the Fish.

PhinsPhan11
05-13-2011, 10:47 PM
Nice 5-4 win over the Braves. We had to find many different forms of offense, but we still got the win. Also, the bullpen did a great job after Cole came out.

PhinsPhan11
05-15-2011, 04:43 PM
Tough 3-2 loss to the Braves today. Hopefully we can do better against the Cardinals after losing 2 out of 3.

PhinsPhan11
05-16-2011, 11:07 PM
Another day where we can't create any offense. Lee didn't have his good stuff, but when you only give up 3 runs you should win a game.

Roman529
05-17-2011, 01:30 AM

Three straight losses...the first three game losing streak of the season. The pitching is still doing ok, but we are not scoring any runs. Lee had way too many walks tonight. Hopefully we can get Utley back in the next couple weeks. We're still in first but the Marlins and Braves are staying with us.

The hitting must get better. We can't win games scoring 2-3 runs.

Another tough loss to the Cardinals 2-1. Decent outing by Oswalt, but again we couldn't score any runs. Hopefully we have more success against the Rockies.

Roman529
05-17-2011, 11:56 PM
ARGHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.....we need to add some hitters. What good does it do us having four aces and no hitting?

PhinsPhan11

Not a hell of a lot. Even if the starters give up 2-3 runs, they still might lose the game.

PhinsPhan11
05-18-2011, 09:47 PM
We finally snap out of our skid with a 2-1 win. Great start by Hamels tonight, and he just got enough run support to get the win.

PhinsPhan11
05-19-2011, 10:16 PM
Rough night for the Phils losing 7-1. Hopefully we play better against the Rangers this weekend with Halladay getting the start tomorrow.

PhinsPhan11
05-20-2011, 11:22 PM
Good win against the Rangers today. Halladay had a great start, and we mustered enough runs against Wilson to get a 3-2 win.

PhinsPhan11
05-21-2011, 09:54 PM
Another grind it out win tonight. Lee had a great start against his former team going 8 innings and 10 K's. Howard broke out of his slump with a HR and we added one more. Also, after tonight, in 8 straight games the Phils have scored 3 runs or less.

Roman529
05-22-2011, 05:50 PM
Another 2-0 loss......it seems like we cannot score more than 2 or 3 runs. Ruben Amaro is going to have to bring in another powerful right handed bat. I would even be ok with going after Jose Reyes. Met's SS, to add some speed and baserunning so we could score some runs. Jimmy Rollins just hits popup outs.

PhinsPhan11

I think today makes it 9 straight games where we have scored 3 runs or less. I read in the Philly Inquirer that Ryan Ludwick, Padres RF, is another possible addition if we want a right handed bat.

SpaceMountain16
05-23-2011, 03:25 PM
They need to get healthy and show what they've got before they make a move if you ask me.

Tonight's lineup is:

Rollins
Utley
Poly
Howard
Ibanez
Ruiz
Brown
Mayberry
HAMELS

That's a pretty strong lineup and that's just with the return of Utley. Potentially that lineup should score runs.

If you bring in a bat, it's great, i think it's worth looking into a RF player to replace the dreadful Francisco/Mayberry tandem. Maybe Blanton is traded, Maybe Lidge? Two exp. contracts. But right now i think you see what you get out of this lineup. Utley just got back, Brown just got back, we can see if they can bring anything to the table. Certainly it's much better than playing Wilson Valdez all season.

PhinsPhan11
05-23-2011, 08:09 PM
Now this is the Phils offense I'm used to seeing. Up 6-0 right now.

PhinsPhan11
05-23-2011, 08:12 PM
Oh yeah! J Roll hits a 3 run HR to make it 9-0.

PhinsPhan11
05-27-2011, 11:52 PM
Solid 6-4 win over the Mets today.

PhinsPhan11
05-28-2011, 09:33 PM
Utley just tied the game at two. Let's go Phils!

PhinsPhan11
05-28-2011, 09:38 PM
Howard rips a double down the line to drive in two. Phils now up 4-2.

PhinsPhan11
05-28-2011, 09:53 PM
Francisco gets an RBI double to get an insurance run. Now it's 5-2.

PhinsPhan11
05-28-2011, 10:03 PM
Madson shuts the door and Phils win 5-2. :woot:

PhinsPhan11
05-29-2011, 07:00 PM
Rough 9-5 loss to the Mets today. At least we took two out of three, now it's on to DC.

PhinsPhan11
05-30-2011, 02:13 PM
Brown singles in Ruiz that puts the Phils up 3-2. Let's keep it goin.

PhinsPhan11
05-30-2011, 03:17 PM
Howard drives in Polanco to tie the game at 4.

PhinsPhan11

Sac fly by Ibanez and Phils now lead 5-4.

PhinsPhan11

RBI single by Utley and Phils are now up 1-0.

PhinsPhan11
06-03-2011, 09:59 PM
What a play by Polanco to send it to the 11th.

PhinsPhan11
06-05-2011, 05:39 PM
Finally broke the losing streak with a 7-3 win today.

Roman529
06-05-2011, 08:31 PM
Doc was good after giving up the early homer that made it 2-0. No way we shouls have lost 2 out of 3 to Pittsburgh. Looks like everyone is starting to hit again. Phillies left 16 men on base, or it could have been 14-3. Utley made a really nice defensive catch and got three hits. Bring on the Dodger Dogs!!!!!

That should be fun. I am going to watch the Phillies when they play the Rockies here in Colorado Aug. 1-3rd. Lee looked really good tonight. Not many walks. Looks like we drafted Larry Greene in the MLB Draft. It sounds like he is a smaller version of Ryan Howard with a lot of power.

PhinsPhan11
06-07-2011, 10:30 PM
Another loss today, 6-2 to the Dodgers. Hopefully we turn it around with Hamels tomorrow with me at the game.

SpaceMountain16
06-08-2011, 12:57 PM
Hamels is killing it right now. I was in Pittsburgh to see him throw the 8 inning 1 hitter. But the bats just can't hit. The Phillies lost that game in 12 innings because they could only get 1 run. It's pathetic right now.

PhinsPhan11
06-08-2011, 11:19 PM
Great game to be at tonight. Hamels had a great game, 8 innings and 10 K's. Howard had a HR. Hopefully we get another win tomorrow against the Cubs. I'll have center field seats for this one.

PhinsPhan11
06-10-2011, 11:17 PM
Good game tonight by Halladay. Provided just enough runs for our bullpen which had a bad game. Still good to get a 7-5 win.

PhinsPhan11
06-11-2011, 07:43 PM
Nice 7-1 win today. Lee pitched another good game. It was nice to see Utley hit a HR. Hopefully we get the game tomorrow to make it three out of four against the Cubs.

Roman529
06-11-2011, 10:56 PM
Utley is starting to hit the ball hard once again. Lee did a really nice job. It looks like the Marlins are fading fast and it is going to come down to us and the Braves in the NL East. But there are still about 100 games to be played.

I'm just pissed off. Sick of it.

Bullpen was our biggest weakness last season. We fixed it. Now it has gone into the tank again. We're up 4 - 1. Granted no 4 - 1 lead is safe against that team, but you gotta win those games man.

Arghhhhh lost 4-2 to the Mariners. I bet the Yankees or Red Sox would never have to play a game on Thursday on the East Coast and play the next night on the West Coast, like the Phillies were forced to do tonight. Oh well....at least the Braves also lost and the Marlins are going to be in last place soon if they aren't already.

PhinsPhan11

I watched last night's 7-6 loss to the Marlins and man was it frustrating. KK had a nice 4-0 lead and then it was 6-3.....Charlie pulled him too soon. Herndon came in and didn't do crap. Baez then ruined it in extra innings. I believe Baez has been let go from the team. It's about time. The Braves swept the Rockies today so they are breathing down our necks. The Rockies didn't have Tulo or Carlos Gonzalez but you can bet they both will be playing when the Phillies are at Coor's Field Aug. 1-3rd. I will be there with all my Phin's gear on. A three game lead is pretty nice....I figure if we don't win the division we should at least win the wild card, but I still think our pitching will win the NL East.

Last night was a tough one for halladay. ESPN showed that next level and when the heat is 90 degrees or more outside halladays era is 4.02 compared to 2.97. Hopefully we can get one tonight with cliff lee going. I just wanted to say that I read today online that charlie manuel is making it publicly known that he wants ruben amaro jr. to go out and get a "game changer" speaking about a right handed batter. Honestly, i think the perfect fit would be hunter pence from houston and the phillies and astros have done a lot of business together recently. What do you guys think?

I would love the move for Pence. He brings a nice bat to this lineup, which it can desperately use. You can platoon him and Brown in RF, and I think that can work.

looks like the phillies will yet again win another series today in chicago. and replying to the hunter pence brown platoon i think it would be great but id like to see one of them move to left field. could you imagine the speed and arms in our outfield with pence, victorino, and brown. plus you have mayberry to come off the bench? id love for them to trade raul but its not going to happen. sure he has been playing well as of late but lets not be quick to forget the horrible april and june months he had this season plus he is in the last year of his contract and not getting any younger.

I was just saying the platoon option for this year. I would love to have am outfield of Victorino, Brown, and Pence with Mayberry coming off the bench. There's some youth there besides Victorino, but when he leaves Mayberry can come in and do just as good of a job. I'll be interested to see what Rueben does at the deadline.

Btw, Phils win 9-1.

I just want to say it looks like that knee of chase utleys is feeling just fine....and i think he may be just hitting his stride now which would be huge going into the last 2 months of the season. No news on trades yet but ESPN is reporting that the philllies have interest in heath bell??? I dont understand the thinking here we need a BAT not another arm. Unless they were going to deal brad lidge but i dont think anyone is going to want him. Also just saw today that fat joe wont pitch at all this year. Nice news for the VANimal who dominated last night.

It's official, the Phils have Hunter Pence and didn't have to give up any guys on the MLB squad. We did give up some of our top prospects, but I think Pence is worth it.

07-30-2011, 01:36 PM
Well you cant say now at the end that we didnt try. Adding pence really makes that defense in the outfield so much better and he automatically is leading the team in avg doubles and hits so it is a much needed bat to the offense.

Another great thing about adding Pence is now Howard has some protection in the lineup, which he hasn't had all year.

I was at Coor's Field on Monday night and with the Phillies trailing 3-1 with two outs in the 9th, I thought it was over. I was heading for the exits and leaving the park when I heard a loud noise from the crowd and I walked a couple blocks and looked into the window of a sport's bar and I saw the games was tied at 3. I couldn't believe it. I got in my car right as Victorino gave the Phillies the lead. I also went to today's game and Halladay didn't have his best stuff but the offense is really rolling and the Phillies swept the Rockies. Ohhhh by the way, I got a baseball from Carlos Ruiz on Monday night. He was warming up Cole Hamels in the bullpen and one baseball got past him and almost ended up in the fountain area. Chooch tossed a baseball up to me. It is sitting on top of my Phillies' mug on top of my tv set. At least the Phillies keep me going when the Phins are spinning their wheels.

Phillies have stretched out a 9.5 game lead with a little under 50 games left. They have a chance to sweep the Giants tomorrow....but even if it is just 3 out 4 they are playing great ball. It sounds like Polanco may have injured his hip, but Martinez has done a nice job at 3B in his absence. Hopefully Charlie will rest Polanco and have him fully healthy for the playoff stretch. I think Pence has been one of Ruben Amaro's best acquisitions. He is the ideal #5 hitter and right handed bat.

The Phillies should be plenty rested with all of the rainouts and hurricane cancellations. We still have a nice cushion on the Braves but we cannot coast the rest of the way. The Brewers won again today at home where they hardly ever lose, and we have to make sure we get the best record for homefield advantage throughout the playoffs. If the playoffs started today, the Phillies would play the D-Backs and the Braves would play the Brewers.

I love Worley but if a team like the Dodgers were willing to trade Ethier or Kemp for Worley and maybe Dom Brown, I would do the deal. Imagine having Shane Victorino, Hunter Pence and either Kemp or Ethier as our other outfielder.
