    For 13 years, baseball has made a point to honor the troops in a more conspicuous way than it had before. Have we lost something as a result?

    Baseball, I’ve written before, will never stop being the game it was when you were 10 years old. That’s the charm. That’s the nostalgia. That’s the trap. I was 10 years old in 1977. The Kansas City Royals had the best record in baseball that year. The Baltimore Orioles were baseball’s paragon.

  9. Blue Jays acquire John Mayberry, Jr. from the Phillies

    Boston Red Sox v Baltimore Orioles

    Things went south quickly for Grady Sizemore after he made his return to the big leagues in April following a two-year absence. The Red Sox recently released him, but Sizemore is drawing interest from several teams, including the Phillies.

    Puig Out

    I took the kids to the Dodgers-Reds game and they saw Yasiel Puig flop about three feet from the second base bag on a caught stealing. Still: beats working.

    “Everyone is just looking in the mirror, looking around, trying to find that spark.”

    May 2, 2014, 11:35 PM EST

    Washington Nationals v Miami Marlins

    Kevin Frandsen was shockingly cut by the Phillies towards the end of spring training despite the club’s lack of depth. Frandsen is on a better team and performing well, but he is still upset about the way things ended in Philadelphia.

  15. Steve Cishek’s save streak suddenly snapped

    You probably know this, but the Kansas City Royals single season home run record is 36, and Steve Balboni set it almost 30 years ago.

    The Phillies, in a bit of a roster conundrum with the latest rash of injuries, have outrighted infielder Kevin Frandsen to Triple-A Lehigh Valley, MLB.com’s Todd Zolecki reports. Frandsen has 72 hours to accept or reject the assignment. Zolecki adds that GM Ruben Amaro told Frandsen he still has a chance to make the Opening…

  19. Darin Ruf strains his oblique, is questionable to begin the season

    Mar 20, 2014, 3:30 PM EST

    New York Mets v Philadelphia Phillies

    Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com reports the latest bad news from Clearwater. This about Darin Ruf: Ruf suffered a strained left oblique while taking batting practice before the Phillies’ split-squad game in Kissimmee on Thursday afternoon. He was scratched from the lineup and will be evaluated Friday. As Salisbury notes, this could be a big blow…

  20. The Astros are looking for a first baseman

    astros logo

    Jayson Stark reports that the Astros have been calling teams in an effort to acquire a first baseman. Stark says that among the potential targets are Mike Carp of the Red Sox, John Mayberry of the Phillies, and Tyler Moore of the Nationals. No word if they’d be in on Ike Davis, who we just noted…

  21. Ryan Howard isn’t fond of platoon talk

    Feb 15, 2014, 7:05 PM EST

    ryan howard getty

    For several years, many have suggested that the Phillies ought to platoon first baseman Ryan Howard with a right-handed hitter who can handle lefties. In the past, John Mayberry, Jr. was one option and more recently, Darin Ruf seems tailor-made for the role. Per CSN Philly’s Jim Salisbury, Howard is keeping the mindset of an…

  22. Phillies could get creative to find room for Darin Ruf on the roster

    Feb 8, 2014, 9:30 PM EST

    New York Mets v Philadelphia Phillies

    By weighted on-base average (wOBA), Darin Ruf (.354) out-hit every Phillie except Chase Utley (.356). PECOTA, the projection system found at Baseball Prospectus, projects Ruf to be more valuable than All-Star Domonic Brown in 2014. And yet, most are expecting Ruf to start the season with Triple-A Lehigh Valley. It makes logical sense. The Phillies’…

  23. The Phillies have shown interest in Vernon Wells

    Jan 19, 2014, 6:05 PM EST

    New York Yankees' Wells hits two-run home run against Kansas City Royals in their MLB American League baseball game in Kansas City

    Sometimes the jokes just write themselves. According to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe, the Phillies have recently expressed interest in current free agent outfielder Vernon Wells. Wells was released by the Yankees last week and the Angels are paying the majority of his $21 million salary for 2014, so acquiring Wells is as cheap…

  24. Plays of the Day: Roger Bernadina makes a pair of nifty grabs in Phillies victory

    Aug 25, 2013, 7:25 PM EST

    Roger Bernadina

    Roger Bernadina was very supportive of his pitching staff today, making a pair of impressive catches to help keep the Diamondback offense at bay. The athleticism is made all the more impressive considering that this afternoon’s game started just 11 hours after last night’s knock-down, drag-out, 18-inning affair ended. The first great grab occurred In…
