    I should start by writing about the intentional walk that went bad in the Royals’ rout of the Phillies on Friday.  With the Phillies up 4-2 and one out in the sixth, manager Charlie Manuel decided he’d rather have lefty Jeremy Horst face Alex Gordon with the bases loaded than Kyle Kendrick or a right-handed…

    Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com reports that the Phillies have traded right-handed reliever Michael Schwimer to the Blue Jays for minor league first baseman Art Charles. Schwimer, who turned 27 earlier this week, has a 4.62 ERA and 52/23 K/BB ratio over 48 2/3 innings in the big leagues. He made 35 appearances with the Phillies…

    UPDATE: Schwimer’s agent, Jeff Borris, tells Salisbury that no grievance has been filed against the Phillies. However, he did ask the MLBPA to investigate the matter. It’s still possible a grievance could be filed. “I believed Michael could have been sent down while he was hurt so I turned the matter over to the union…

    If this comes together, the Phillies will possess one of the most expensive infields of all-time. Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports that the Rangers and Phillies are in “advanced talks” about a deal that would send Michael Young and cash to the Phillies for a reliever and a prospect. The Rangers would…

    Upset that the Phillies optioned him to the minors instead of placing him on the MLB disabled list with elbow soreness, reliever Michael Schwimer took his sweet time reporting to Triple-A and there was even speculation that he might file a grievance. Schwimer finally reported to Lehigh Valley yesterday, six days after being optioned there.…

  6. Michael Schwimer shows unhappiness with Phillies by not reporting to Triple-A

    Last week the Phillies demoted rookie reliever Michael Schwimer to Triple-A, but the right-hander was unhappy about the move and believed he should have been placed on the disabled list instead because of elbow soreness. That may not seem like a big difference, but a DL stint would mean collecting a major-league salary and accruing…

    The Phillies optioned right-handed reliever Michael Schwimer to Triple-A Lehigh Valley today in order to make room for Jeremy Horst‘s return from the paternity leave list. That’s hardly headline news. But the story behind the roster move is a bit more interesting. Here’s the scoop from Jim Salisbury of CSNPhilly.com: According to multiple sources, the…

  8. Running down the rosters: Philadelphia Phillies

    Feb 27, 2012, 7:05 PM EDT

    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…
