PHILLIES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Princes of the Plate: Giants 5, Phillies 4

The Phillies gave it a ride, but on Prince Night in San Francisco, the Giants were intolerably good. Damn them. The Phillies gave it a run, but were unable to hold off the Giants at the end. Zach Eflin pitched six strong innings, allowing an unearned run on five hits and two errors with a single strikeout; he left the game with a lead, but the bullpen was outdone. Unsurprisingly...

What’s Wrong With Aaron Nola?

The 2016 Phillies were supposed to be a terrible team and lately they’ve been living up (or down) to that expectation. What was not expected, however, was the complete deterioration of Aaron Nola‘s early season success. Entering play on June 11th, Nola had a 2.65 ERA, but now, three starts later, that ERA has risen all the way to 4.11. 2016 Aaron Nola GS IP H ER R BB K ERA...

WATCH: Minor league catcher drilled by pitch he wasn't expecting

Pitchers and catchers are known to confuse each other with signs on occasion. That’s especially the case if there’s a runner on second base, and the pitcher and catcher are trying to mix the signs up so that the baserunner isn’t stealing signs (and relaying it back to the hitter). They may not be on the same page and the pitcher throws a fastball when the catcher is expecting...

Now It’s the Phillies Offense That’s Laughably Bad

We have an understanding, right? Neither the Phillies nor Braves were supposed to be good, and neither the Phillies nor Braves are actually good. Winning now was never part of the plan, so in a sense it kind of doesn’t matter what happens on the field. Not on the team level, because the teams were always going to lose. So there’s no point in being too critical, or in laughing...
