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.

This Guy Speaks For All of You

This individual, interviewed by FOX 29 on Friday as the Phillies arrived back at Citizens Bank Park, said it best. When asked how he felt regarding the Phillies, he told Steve Keeley that he was, "Stoked, baby!" The unidentified phanatic then proclaimed, "We are talking about the Fightins here, the Fightins! Said!" Check out the media player below, as the transcribed version certainly does not do this phireball of phandom justice.

McGwire Stays Phony, Despite Admitting Drug Use

Mark McGwire made an effort to publicly come clean today, admitting to the world that he took performance enhancing drugs during his playing career. Steroids and human growth hormones were among the drugs that McGwire admitted to using. MLB Network featured a one on one interview with Bob Costas and McGwire on Monday evening. The broadcast was virtually garbage, thanks to McGwire. Ahead is a list of quotes from McGwire's interview. McGwire repeatedly stated his point of view that there were no dishonorable intentions involved when taking steroids, and that he was merely using them as a means to recover from varying ailments. When asked if he felt like he cheated... "As I look back now...I can see how people would say that. As far as the talent goes and the hand-eye coordination, the ability, the genetics I was given...I don't see it." "I did not take this for any strength purposes." Denial. Read on for similar B.S.

18-inning Marathon Results in Early Return For Doc

Righty hurler Roy Halladay , who was slated to appear in another rehab outing for Double-A Reading on Sunday will return to the big league club instead, following a marathon of baseball Saturday night at Citizens Bank Park.

Over the 4 2/3 innings that followed, Luis Garcia and Zach Miner allowed a combined four earned runs. The remainder of the relief corps including Cesar Jimenez , Justin De Fratus , Jonathan Papelbon , Jake Diekman and B.J Rosenberg combined for 6 2/3 scoreless innings while Sunday's originally scheduled starter Tyler Cloyd was called upon to toss five scoreless frames. As the need to use Cloyd approached, the Phillies d
