After struggling through a long road trip, the Philadelphia Phillies eye their sixth straight home victory Tuesday when they continue their three-game series against the Washington Nationals .
As the Phillies took batting practice before the start of their three-game series against the Washington Nationals Monday night, general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. sat on the brown wooden planks inside the home dugout.
Getting selected to play in the Major League Baseball All-Star Game is one of the toughest things to do as a player, whether you're a star or the 25th man on the roster.
Some time between now and the trade deadline next month the Phillies braintrust will come to terms with the fact the team is no longer a contender and with the current makeup of the roster won't be without some changes.
To buy or to sell? That's the big question that comes to mind for most general managers as the baseball season reaches mid-June and thoughts turn to the trading deadline at the end of next month.
In the beginning, Amaro's moves were mostly good. His first transaction after replacing Pat Gillick was to acquire John Mayberry Jr. from Texas for Greg Golson, an exchange of two underachieving former first-round draft picks.
Joe Mauer has continued to play nearly every day and be one of the top hitters in the American League.
Kevin Frandsen got a rare start at second base for the Phillies in the series opener against the Rockies on Friday.
Cliff Lee 's postgame interview last night is being spun by some as him wanting out of Philly, but even if that were the case, Ruben Amaro does not sound at all inclined to do it.
Colorado shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, the top reason for the team's winning record and a leading candidate for MVP of the National League, figures to be out of action at least a month after breaking a rib while diving for a baseball in the field.
Philadelphia Phillies ace Cliff Lee sounded Thursday like a frustrated player who wouldn't mind trying to win somewhere other than Philadelphia.
Cliff Lee's bad season mercifully came to an end Wednesday as the Phillies lost to the Nats 5-1.
Ben Revere froze, his hands and knees touching the Target Field grass. This was the nadir in a Phillies season not even half complete.
