For the first time in his career, Cole Hamels stepped on the mound on Opening Day with hopes of shutting down the Atlanta hitters and getting his team off to a fast start in the new season.
Unfortunately, he was very “un-Hamels like” tonight.
The 29-year old pitcher did not have his best stuff against the Braves [...]
When a pitcher goes four innings and surrenders 12 earned runs on 14 hits, there’s going to be plenty of questions surrounding that player.
This is the case with John Lannan.
The fifth starter in the Philadelphia Phillies’ rotation, Lannan was rocked Monday by the Toronto Blue Jays. Right from the beginning, it was clear something was [...]
Carlos Ruiz was struck in his left hand last night in the 9th inning against the Boston Red Sox. According to Todd Zolecki of MLB.com, X-rays came back negative and Ruiz feels “fine.” Of course, Ruiz is suspended for the first 25 games of the year after failing a drug test. This spring, the Panama [...]
Domonic Brown’s stat line this spring is astounding: a .397 average with 21 runs, 12 RBIs and six home runs in 22 games.

But is his sudden hitting outbreak just a fluke? Can [...]
Back in that infamous offseason of 2011 when Nnamdi Asomugha, Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Vince Young and Jason Babin stole the headlines, there was a problem that no one noticed right away.
It wasn’t until in hindsight, that among those four guys, there was a 25-39 record amassed between the Oakland Raiders (Asomugha), Arizona Cardinals (Rodgers-Cromartie), Tennessee Titans [...]
It appears that Michael Vick’s week-long routine of carrying a football around wherever he went didn’t do much to help his ball security.
Another game passed with Vick turning the ball over multiple times, increasing his season total to 13 in six games.
When asked whether or not the team is making the same mistakes as in [...]
Sooner or later, Michael Vick has to get the point, right?
Numbers aside, Vick’s turnover woes are greatly impacting the Philadelphia Eagles and in some cases, losing them games. After Sunday’s 16-14 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, Vick now sits at 11 turnovers on the year. That number is among the highest in the league and [...]
When the Philadelphia Eagles step onto the field against the New York Giants Sunday night, their biggest concern on offense, aside from Eli Manning, won’t be Hakeem Nicks or Victor Cruz, but rather the Giants’ new 6-foot-6 tight end, Martellus Bennett.
A familiar foe of the Eagles, Bennett has been nothing but spectacular for New York [...]
A Dallas Cowboy from 2004-11, punter Mat McBriar is poised to win the starting job over second-year man Chas Henry as he suits up for his first-year in a Philadelphia Eagles uniform.
The 33-year old will have to prove to the Eagles’ coaching staff that he is fully recovered from surgery on his left-foot (non-kicking foot). [...]
When the Philadelphia Eagles selected Fletcher Cox in the first-round of the NFL Draft, it was apparent what their plan was for him. He wasn’t drafted to become the star of the defense in year one, rather to come in and be a new, formidable piece to the defensive line rotation.
