Post to Twitter

The Phillies trailed 6-1 after five innings and had one hit, a first-inning home run by Chase Utley. It was a story familiar to fans this season.

But in the final four innings, the rally was on and the deficit was gone in the ninth when Marlon Byrd tied the game with a single. Three batters later, Utley was walked with two outs to get to Ryan Howard, just like on Tuesday night against the Astros.

Howard ended the game with a walk-off single, giving the Phillies a 7-6 come-from-behind win over the Mets on Sunday afternoon at Citizens Bank Park. Read the rest of this entry »

PostHeaderIcon Bewitching Hour: All quiet for Phillies as deadline day hits

Post to Twitter

The Phillies are trying to sell and sell high. Let’s put that out there right away.

Ruben Amaro Jr. knows what this time of year means to the Phillies. This is the time for the Phillies to try to take a step back in the right direction. They get there overnight but anything will be a start.

With exactly 24 hours remaining before the deadline, the Phillies lost in humiliating fashion to the New York Mets, 11-2. It wasn’t the first game like that. It won’t be the last.

But this is the day where positives can begin. That’s where the Phillies have a problem.

There is nowhere to go. Amaro is working the phones, trying to deal players. But he also wants a return. He’s not getting that return.

With less than eight hours remaining before the deadline passes, here’s the latest on the Phillies trade efforts and what they mean. Read the rest of this entry »

PostHeaderIcon Crash And Burn: Phillies routed by Mets in final game before deadline

Post to Twitter

As the Phillies closed a series in New York in an afternoon matinee, Ruben Amaro Jr. had nothing to offer the media prior to the game regarding trade talks.

There are just 24 hours left. There are doubts the Phillies get any deal done by this time tomorrow. Amaro’s silence was symbolic. There are no words left.

The same went for the Phillies play on the field. A two-run game snowballed into a seven-run deficit as the Mets piled five runs on the Phillies bullpen in the seventh to easily claim an 11-2 win on Wednesday afternoon at Citi Field. Read the rest of this entry »

Post to Twitter

Amidst trade rumors, Cole Hamels has been dealing his best games of the season and possibly his career. On Tuesday night, he took the trip to the mound in New York for what could be his last start with the Phillies.

He made the most of it.

Hamels domination continued as he threw eight shutout innings, retiring the final 13 batters he faced. He also got some offensive help by virtue of three home runs as the Phillies claimed a 6-0 win over the Mets at Citi Field. Read the rest of this entry »
