    Ryan Howard Getty

    It’s possible that Ryan Howard could return from July knee surgery to rejoin the Phillies lineup in September, but interim manager Ryne Sandberg told Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com that it would be “counterproductive” for the first baseman to do so. Here’s more: I don’t know what 10 or 15 games would do. He needs to…

    Phillies left-hander John Lannan is expected to undergo surgery to repair a partially torn tendon in his knee, which would knock him out for the remainder of the season.

    delmon young rookie card

    Where might Delmon Young land now that he’s been released by the Phillies? How about back where it all started for him in Tampa Bay? Seriously. Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports “mutual interest and conversations” between the Rays and Young, who was drafted first overall by Tampa Bay in 2003 and made…

    Roy Halladay took a major step in his recovery from shoulder surgery today, throwing six innings in a minor-league rehab game against rookie-ball hitters. Halladay tossed six innings in the Gulf Coast League, allowing three runs on six hits and three walks while striking out four. Not an especially impressive outing versus a bunch of…

  8. Jim Leyland asserts the supremacy of the pitcher win at the All-Star press conference

    Jul 15, 2013, 2:15 PM EDT

    Apple Citi Field

    I just got back from the All-Star Game press conference in which Jim Leyland and Bruce Bochy announced their starting pitchers and lineups.  As Aaron noted, we get Scherzer vs. Harvey and a couple of lineups with which you could quibble, I suppose, if you wanted to, but what’s the point, really? Go outside and…

    Jul 12, 2013, 7:05 PM EDT

    Jun 12, 2013, 6:22 AM EDT

    San Francisco Giants v Pittsburgh Pirates

    The losing team scored two runs in eight of last night’s fifteen games. I have no idea if that’s uncommon or not, but I noticed it and I’m going to pretend it’s a sign or portent or something. Anyway: Pirates 8, Giants 2: Welcome to the big leagues Gerrit Cole. The 2011 number one pick…

    Chicago White Sox v Chicago Cubs

    Players who hit multiple home runs in a game are the new inefficiency. Teams should definitely stock up on those guys while they’re undervalued. Cubs 9, White Sox 3: Backup catcher Dioner Navarro smacked three homers — a solo, a two-run and a three-run jack — to pace the Cubbies. A Cubbies team who happen…

    New York Mets Lucas Duda reacts after he hit to get winning run against New York Yankees in New York

    Mets 2, Yankees 1: Yesterday I cracked that Mariano Rivera, who was asked to throw out the first pitch by the Mets, would likely throw the last pitch in the “Yankees likely victory over the Mets.” Shows ya what I know. The greatest closer in the history of baseball came into the ninth with a…

    Rays 10, Marlins 6: Two three-run homers for Kelly Johnson. He also singled, doubled and stole a base. He has 24 RBI in 21 games in May. Six straight losses for the Marlins despite what was, for them anyway, an offensive outburst. Tigers 6, Pirates 5: While it was his second win in a row…

  16. Anthony Rendon, Miguel Sano rate as 2013’s top minor league performers

    May 21, 2013, 6:43 PM EDT

    Miguel Sano

    The top of the minor league OPS leaderboard is typically littered with Triple-A veterans and A-ball players too old for their leagues. That’s still the case this year, but numbers two, three and four on the list are all top prospects. Minor league OPS leaders (minimum 100 at-bats) Scott Van Slyke (26 Dodgers): 1.236 OPS…

    Phillies third base coach Ryne Sandberg is expected to be the next Phillies manager if and when the Charlie Manuel era ends.

    Oracle of Delphi

    Oh, great Oracle. Tell us what the future holds! Actually, we’re usually way wrong with this stuff. All of us picked the Phillies to win the NL East last year and that didn’t work out too well.  But at least unlike a lot of outfits, we come back to these in October and remind everyone…

    David Murphy of the Philadelphia Daily News has a really good article about Vance Worley, who was traded from the Phillies to the Twins for Ben Revere this offseason. It begins with the amusing story of how Worley learned about the trade from Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. while waiting to pick up an…
