Ohfer-Roll Still On Top

Are you ready for your regularly scheduled Jimmy Rollins/lead off hitter reflections? Jelly-Roll's "ohfers" are killing the team. Rollins was hitless in his 6th straight game, after going 0-for-5 on Tuesday in Atlanta. Here is a look at game results when Rollins plays and hits successfully in a game vs. when Rollins plays and goes 0-for-...

Phillies record when Rollins has at least one hit...28-13 (.682 winning pct)
Phillies record when Rollins does not have a hit...7-19 (.269 winning pct)


Rollins is batting .115 (7-for-61) in his last 14 games. The team is 4-10 in those games.

The Pirates traded Eric Hinske to the Yankees on Tuesday for two minor leaguers. Hinske is best known to Philadelphia phans as the batter who struck out for the final out of the 2008 World Series. Those of you who were looking forward to seeing Hinske and the Pirates visit Citizens Bank Park over the weekend of July 10-12 and offering him a great welcome, may now have to wait until the 2009 World Series for Hinske to return.

2022 Phillies Top Prospects Countdown: #15 Infielder Kendall Simmons

An All-Star in 2019 with the short-season Class-A Williamsport Crosscutters,  Kendall Simmons  is one of the Phillies' most promising prospects.   Simmons, an outstanding and multi-positional infielder, was the Phillies' 6th round draft pick in 2018. That year, he made his professional debut in the Rookie level Gulf Coast League, posting a .234 average with three homers and 11 RBI in 32 games. The right-handed batter tallied a .234 batting average with 12 homers, 34 RBI and five stolen bases in 51 games with Williamsport in 2019.  In the 2020-2021 off-season, Simmons played in the Australian Baseball League, making up for some of the time missed due to the cancelled 2020 season.  In 21 games with Adelaide, he notched a .172 batting average with a home run, seven RBI and three steals.  Last year, Simmons played primarily with Class A Clearwater.  With the Threshers, he recorded a .226/.321/.460 slash line in 41 games.  Listed at six-feet-two, 180 pounds, strength and athleticism

The Phillies forced game 6 of the National League Championship Series with a 4-2 victory over the Giants in San Francisco on Thursday night. Game 6 will feature Roy Oswalt vs. Jonathan Sanchez in a return pitching match up from game 2. First pitch is scheduled for 7:57 pm EST at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia. Be sure to tune in on 97.3 ESPN's Weekend Sports Guide with Tyrone Johnson this afternoon around 1:15pm to hear me chatting about the Phillies! 97.3 is based in Atlantic City.

2022 Phillies Top Prospects Countdown: #16 RHP McKinley Moore

Moore, image- Jay Floyd Acquired this spring in a deal that sent outfielder Adam Haseley to the White Sox, righty pitcher McKinley Moore joined the Phillies organization and quickly garnered attention as a promising relief option for the future.

He also held his own in the prestigious Arizona Fall League last year, where he posted a 4.22 ERA while striking out nine and walking five in 10 2/3 innings pitched.   Considered as a flame thrower,
