  1. Grading the Philadelphia Phillies for the month of April

    Grading the Philadelphia Phillies for the month of April

    By Mike Prince, Sportswriter

    One month of the 2011 Major League Baseball season has passed and there are a number of certainties and a number of uncertainties surrounding the Philadelphia Phillies.

    There has been some superb pitching and there has been some disappointing pitching. There has been some streaky hitting and there has been a whole lot of untimely offensive slumping. But one thing is ...
  2. Hard to Believe, Halladay

    By Mike Prince, Sportswriter

    Philadelphia - When Roy Halladay came to Philadelphia, he not only brought with him the best arm in baseball, but he brought with him an unwavering confidence that allows him to go out and perform like he did on Wednesday.

    He had waited his entire life for this. He came out of the dugout, walked up to the mound and began an illustration of dominance that was so remarkable, even the man himself may not have been able to comprehend what ...

  4. Time to Bench Royster, Play Redd is Now

    By Mike Prince, Sportswriter

    What possible reason could there be that a very highly-touted running back comes into a game, gets a handoff, makes some impressive moves and gains 19 yards on his first play of the game — and then we don’t see him again until the game is basically over?

    Is the Penn State coaching staff that afraid to bench a senior running back?

  5. Halladay All But Solidifies Cy Young Award With Division-Clinching Performance

    Philadelphia - Sometimes, a trade opportunity comes along that, while it may force you to part with players you’d rather not see go, is just too good to pass up.

    With his biggest acquisition as the Philadelphia Phillies’ general manager, Ruben Amaro Jr. – who stepped in for Pat Gillick after the 2008 World Series-winning season – went out and got arguably the best pitcher in Major League Baseball.

    And just like that, Roy Halladay – the same guy who pitched in six All-Star ...
