    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2013 season. Today: the Philadelphia Phillies. The Big Question: Will the Phillies defy age and injury concerns? The Phillies had the oldest offense and…

    Philadelphia activated Carlos Ruiz from the disabled list after the All-Star catcher missed the past five weeks with plantar fasciitis in his left foot, which is a surprise considering there was some recent talk about the Phillies simply shutting him down the season. Not as surprising is the Phillies putting Placido Polanco on the disabled list,…

    In addition to the box scores, I also watched Bill Clinton last night. No matter what your politics, I hope we can agree that Clinton makes everyone want to listen to their “Siamese Dream” cassette and drive around in their Chevy Cavalier, waiting for their pager to blow up.  Anyway: Nationals 9, Cubs 1: Gio…

  4. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Jayson Werth, Danny Espinosa, Kurt Suzuki,

    Nationals 5, Braves 4: I suppose you can yell at Dan Uggla for messing up the play with the infield in and a runner on third in the 13th inning which allowed the winning run to score. But perhaps it’s also worth noting that the Braves played perhaps their most important game to date, in…

  5. Juan Pierre wins it for Phillies in 11th

    Juan Pierre

    Juan Pierre has collected more infield hits than anyone else in the game since arriving in the majors in 2000, but he had never won a game with one until now. Pierre beat out a grounder to deep short in the bottom of the 11th inning to score Jimmy Rollins and give the Phillies an…

  6. Carlos Ruiz out four to six weeks with plantar fasciitis in left foot

    The Phillies just announced that Carlos Ruiz was placed on the 15-day disabled list with plantar fasciitis in his left foot. An MRI revealed a partial tear, so he’s expected to miss 4-6 weeks. It’s been that kind of year for the Fightins. It’s a real shame, as Ruiz was enjoying the best season of…

  7. Running down the rosters: Philadelphia Phillies

    Cole Hamels, Cliff Lee, Roy Halladay

    The Phillies still look like the class of the NL, but while their win totals have increased five years running, it hasn’t resulted in playoff success the last couple of years. Rotation Roy Halladay – R Cliff Lee – L Cole Hamels – L Vance Worley – R Joe Blanton – R Bullpen Jonathan Papelbon…
