The Phillies' GM Is Sick Of All These Fans Who Just "Bitch And Complain"

Phillies GM Ruben Amaro has constructed a team that has put together back-to-back 73-win seasons, and with the club’s current record sitting at 19-28, it doesn’t look like things are going to get better this year. And yet, Amaro would really like for all those disillusioned Phillies fans out there to just shut the… » 5/26/15 3:26pm Tuesday 3:26pm

Phillies Fan Rips Home Run Ball Away From Old Lady

We’ve been over the ethics of who deserves baseballs that make their way off the field of play before (consult this flowchart) and so we feel it necessary to illustrate this incident from yesterday’s Diamondbacks-Phillies game, in which a Phillyfan pushes aside an elderly woman to grab Maikel Franco’s first career… » 5/18/15 9:15am 5/18/15 9:15am

Phillies Fans Mimic Craig Kimbrel's Stance To Mess With Him

Braves closer Craig Kimbrel has an odd stance before he pitches. He hunches over and stretches his arms out, resembling a bird of prey defending itself.

Phillies GM Explains Why Terrible Team Didn't Get Better

The trade deadline should have been the Phillies' day. They are bad, foundering, getting worse, weighed down by terrible contracts and not about to be bailed out by talent from a thin minor league system. But they have handful of good major leaguers, all older, all who would be very useful for a team that's capable… » 8/01/14 9:30am 8/01/14 9:30am

Cliff Lee Exits Early With Injury, Yells "Fuck!"

It's hard to say what happened—and speculating about injuries is the worst—but in the video here (not embeddable yet), Cliff lee is obviously upset and frustrated after throwing his 31st pitch of the game. In the third inning, with Denard Span up, Lee threw a cutter and immediately looked disgusted and pointed to… » 7/31/14 8:39pm 7/31/14 8:39pm
