PHILLIES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Drew Storen not happy about Jonathan Papelbon trade

The Washington Nationals bolstered their bullpen on Tuesday when they acquired closer Jonathan Papelbon from the Philadelphia Phillies.

Drew Storen has been closing games for the Nationals all season, and he has been very effective in that role....Read More

Jonathan Papelbon will be traded … somewhere

The Jonathan Papelbon saga is approaching its close. According to Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia, the unhappy Phillies closer will be traded this week to a still unknown suitor. You wouldn’t know it from the scorn lobbed Papelbon’s way, but he’s actually pitched quite well this season. In 39 2/3 innings, he’s pitched to a 1.59 ERA, punching out 40 and walking just...

Congratulations Phillies Fans, You've Survived the Worst of It

Offense erupts to back Nola as Phills sweep Cubs

On a Sunday afternoon in late July in front of a sold out crowd, Ryan Howard homered and the Phillies’ offense scored 11 runs on 17 hits with a 22-year-old future ace on the mound, making only his second Major League start. It felt like 2006 all over again, except the 22-year-old was Aaron Nola, not Cole Hamels, and the sold out crowd was there to cheer on their hometown Cubs,...

Philadelphia Phillies’ invaluable asset: International pitching

The Philadelphia Phillies, a rather sentimental organization, were ranked Minor League Baseball’s twenty-fifth overall farm system according to Kieth Law. Although the ranking may suit Philadelphia’s lower-tier farm system well, I disagree with Law’s decision. Despite a lack of both depth and talent alike, Philadelphia has an assortment of impressive prospects. Other than...

Phillies' Jeff Francoeur boosting trade value

Most of the trade talk involving the Phillies revolves around the potential next destination of left-hander Cole Hamels, but outfielder Jeff Francoeur could also be a viable target for a contending team.
