    ryan-madson-phillies-nlcs

    Last month when Jose Contreras joined Brad Lidge on the disabled list I wrote that it may actually be a semi-positive thing for the Phillies because the injuries gave Ryan Madson a chance to prove that he can be a standout closer. Far too many Phillies fans had convinced themselves that Madson couldn’t possibly get…

    It has been over a week since Giants outfielder Andres Torres suffered a strained left Achilles tendon while trying to make a play on a fly ball and landed on the 15-day disabled list.

    According to Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News, the Giants placed Andres Torres on the 15-day disabled list yesterday with a strained left Achilles tendon.

According to MLB.com beat writer Chris Haft, Torres had to be pulled from Saturday’s game against the Cardinals in the fourth inning after straining his left Achilles tendon while coming in on a Colby Rasmus shallow pop fly.

    Oct 17, 2010, 7:25 PM EST

    Cincinnati Reds v Philadelphia Phillies, Game 2

    11:22: Ryan Madson was shaky, but he gets Edgar Renteria to ground out to end it. Final score: 6-1, Phillies. Roy Oswalt was The Man tonight.  Now these teams fly to San Francisco for Game 3. Tomorrow night it’s Rangers-Yankees from New York. I’ll be writing up a little recap here shortly, but after that…

    The Giants haven’t officially announced their roster for the NLCS against the Phillies — Bruce Bochy plans to speak with his players later tonight — but some early pieces are starting to fall into place. According to Andrew Baggarly of San Jose Mercury News, Bochy just announced that Aaron Rowand will be on the roster.…

  8. Aaron Cook likely to rejoin Rockies rotation in early September

    Aug 25, 2010, 5:31 PM EST

    On the disabled list for the past few weeks with a sprained big toe, Aaron Cook could rejoin the Rockies’ rotation as soon as September 2 against the Phillies. Cook tossed five innings of one-run ball Monday in his first rehab start at Triple-A and Troy Renck of the Denver Post reports that he’ll likely…

  9. Roy Oswalt knocked around by Nats in Phillies debut

    Jul 30, 2010, 10:51 PM EST

    Those Nats sure know how to ruin a good party, huh? Roy Oswalt was beat up pretty good in his Phillies debut Friday night, allowing five runs — four earned — over six innings as part of an 8-1 loss. He gave up seven hits — including four extra-base hits — and two walks while…

  10. Halladay Hit Parade: The Reds beat the Phillies 4-3

    Jun 30, 2010, 4:12 PM EST

    It’s not every day you see Roy Halladay give up 13 hits — in fact, he hadn’t done that all year — but he did to the Reds today, the most significant of which was Jay Bruce’s two-run homer in the eighth to give the Reds a come-from-behind win. To be honest, it’s amazing that…

  11. Comment of the Day: Kenny Williams should chill

    Jun 11, 2010, 10:57 AM EST

    I don’t necessarily think that Ozzie has a valid point here, if his son is not a legitimate prospect.  That said, I can understand him having higher expectations given that 2008 6th round draft pick Ken Williams Jr. is hitting .222/.314/.344 as a 24 year old in high A.  Blatant nepotism is only appreciated when…

  12. Baseball and movies: Renner looks like Peavy, Hill doesn't look like DePodesta

    Mar 8, 2010, 12:42 PM EST

    Jeremy Renner was seemingly the only person involved with The Hurt Locker not to take home an Oscar last night, but as seemingly everyone in my Twitter feed pointed out at least he still looks like a dead ringer for Jake Peavy (or perhaps at this point Peavy looks like a dead ringer for him):…

  13. Phillies manager Charlie Manuel sheds 56 pounds

    Jan 19, 2010, 12:46 PM EST

    Phillies manager Charlie Manuel told NBCPhiladelphia.com that he’s lost 56 pounds since signing a deal to do advertisements for Nutrisystem. He’s never going to be svelte, but the 65-year-old Type 2 diabetic has gone from 286 pounds to 230 pounds in less than a year, and as you can see from the photo there’s definitely…

  14. Link-O-Rama: Phillips, Ibanez, Mills, Beltran

    * In addition to letting Steve Phillips go, ESPN has now also fired the 22-year-old production assistant with whom he had an affair. Meanwhile, agent Steve Lefkowitz revealed that Phillips has entered a rehab facility for sex addiction in an effort “to save his marriage.” * Charlie Manuel said today that Raul Ibanez will “more…

  15. NLDS Preview: Phillies vs. Rockies

    Oct 6, 2009, 11:58 PM EST

    The good news for fans of the Colorado Rockies is that their team — on the strength of their big 2007-esque second-half surge — is once again baseball’s feel-good story. The bad news? The Phillies don’t really care. Since firing manager Clint Hurdle and replacing him with Jim Tracy, the Rockies have gone 74-41 (.643)…

  16. Phillies go with Lee in Game 1, Hamels in Game 2

    Oct 6, 2009, 1:03 PM EST

    Charlie Manuel announced this afternoon that Cliff Lee will start Game 1 of the NLDS against Colorado, with Cole Hamels going in Game 2. You can’t really go wrong either way, but Hamels has been the Phillies’ ace for years now and was named MVP of both the NLCS and World Series last October. On…

  17. Link-O-Rama: Phillies pitchers apparently watch Survivor

    Jul 20, 2009, 12:40 PM EST

    * Kyle Kendrick recently got engaged to former Survivor runner-up Stephenie LaGrossa, which is especially interesting because fellow Phillies starter Cole Hamels is married to former Survivor contestant Heidi Strobel. Somewhere a naked Richard Hatch is studying Philadelphia’s depth chart. * Drew Storen was the first of this year’s draftees to sign and the No.…

  20. Daily Dose: Phillies turn to Madson as closer

    Jun 10, 2009, 2:08 AM EST

    Brad Lidge was flawless last year, converting 41-of-41 save chances with a 1.95 ERA, but blew six saves in 19 tries this season while posting a 7.27 ERA and the Phillies placed him on the disabled list Tuesday. Shutting Lidge down for a while may be the only way to stop manager Charlie Manuel from…
