Eric Wellwood Preparing For First Full NHL Season

Eric Wellwood showed Flyers’ fans what elusive speed was as he flew up and down the ice on a nightly basis.  The sixth round pick had nine points in 25 games last year before virtually disappearing during the playoffs.
Don’t hold his first playoff showing against him. The two-way forward’s ice time dropped drastically leaving him […]

Trading For Luke Schenn Was A Mistake

The Philadelphia Flyers gave up the second overall pick of the 2007 NHL draft and life long Flyer fan James Van Riemsdyk for Toronto Maple Leaf’s defenseman Luke Schenn over the weekend.
Brayden Schenn’s older brother has a solid build (6-2, 230lbs), but he doesn’t make the type of plays that win fans over. Schenn will […]

Amaro Working To Sign Draft Picks

The Phillies inked a deal to pay Zach Green $420,000, slightly higher than the club originally thought they’d be paying for the infielder. Green played shortstop at his California high school and is committed to play at Oregon State.
He was an underclassman All-American in 2011, and was named to the 2012 Rawlings 3rd Team All-Americans. […]

Is It Time For The Phillies To Call Up Tyler Cloyd?

The backside of the Phillies rotation is as weak as ever. Joe Blanton pitched a solid game against Minnesota, but that’s all the good that can be said of the 235-pounder right now.
In his previous five starts, Blanton has given up no less than five earned runs. Maybe the heat got to the Tennessee native, […]

Could Ben Sheets Be The Answer To The Phillies’ Problems?

The Phillies need a lot of help in every area of their game from their lineup to the bullpen, with starting pitching mixed somewhere in between. Could Ben Sheets be the answer to the Phils’ struggling rotation? Probably not, but he may be put into the situation anyway.
The righthander worked out for the Phillies, Braves, […]

Could The Phillies Be In The Market For Willingham?

The Minnesota Twins are openly shopping their left fielder, Josh Willingham. The Twins are loaded with outfield prospects with the pack led by Joe Benson, an impressive five-tool player, who should be seeing some time in the majors come September call-ups (if not earlier).
Willingham’s trade stock became much more valuable to the Twins after Trevor […]

Did The Phillies Make A Mistake By Not Jumping On Oswalt?

After Roy Halladay was sidelined with a shoulder injury, people began speculating whether the Phillies would consider reacquiring Roy Oswalt. When choosing to hang up his cleats for a short leave last offseason, the righty hurler made it very clear he intended on making a comeback.
He denied an offer from the Detroit Tigers to add […]

Should The Phillies Pursue Kevin Youkilis?

Thursday night marked Ty Wigginton’s second straight start at first base and the utility man responded with two RBIs and three hits. The 34-year old has played well for the Phillies in the wake of Ryan Howard’s injury, but how long can this charade continue?
When Ruben Amaro Jr. signed Wiggie to a two-year, eight-million dollar […]

Could Hamels Or Victorino Actually Be Traded?

The Toronto Blue Jays expressed interest in both Cole Hamels and Shane Victorino last week. The Blue Jays executives wanted to see how high the asking price would be for the two all-stars, but they were merely testing the water, and talks were not serious. The Jays have also approached several other teams including the […]

Does The Success Of Flyers West Make Holmgren’s Moves Look Bad?

Sure Mike Richards and Jeff Carter may get the last laugh this year, but they are no more than rooks in Jonathon Quick’s game of chess. Not unlike the New York Rangers, the Los Angeles Kings success can be heavily weighted upon the shoulders of the soon-to-be starting goalie for team USA next Olympics. After […]
