Howard Eskin of FOX 29 TV is reporting that the Phillies are on the verge of acquiring Jose Bautista from the Toronto Blue Jays. The deal could include Domonic Brown. Bautista is under contract for two more years at $14 million each, with a team option for $14 million in 2016. He mashed 28 home runs for Toronto in 2013 with a .259 average. The Phillies are struggling to fend off the curse of old age — and although […]
The Phillies torched Jeremy Hefner and racked up 11 runs in the first three innings on their way to a 13-8 win over the Mets tonight at Citi Field. Hefner was rocked for eight runs in two-plus innings before being pulled in the third before registering an out. he allowed 10 hits including a home run to Domonic Brown. The Phillies have toasted Hefner throughout his career. Greg Burke and Josh Edgin provided no relief […]

But then I realized that Citizens Bank Park is band box, and one or two big swings would get the Mets right back in the game. Sure enough, homers from the red-hot John Buck and Lucas Duda made it a 5-2 […]
Over the last month or so, the Carlos Beltran rumors have heated up to the max. It has quickly became a “when” Mets deal Carlos Beltran instead of “if”. Ken Rosenthal reports the Red Sox and Phillies have been the most persistent thus far. That may be true and I’m not discounting that, however I don’t believe Carlos Beltran will be in either uniform come August 31st. The Red Sox lack that true “blue chip” […]
The Philadelphia Phillies have called up Domonic Brown, one of the best prospects in the minors, to replace Shane Victorino who was placed on the DL today. Brown is one of the premier prospects in all of baseball and was recently ranked #15 by Baseball America and #12 by MLB. To put that in perspective, Ike Davis was ranked #62 on those same lists. The 22 year old phenom, was tearing it up in AA […]
