Biddle Rests Ailing Hip For Playoff Push


Lefty pitching prospect Jesse Biddle has been on a hot streak for the Class A Lakewood BlueClaws. In 8 games since the South Atlantic League All-star break, Biddle has posted a 2-1 record with a 1.97 ERA and a .216 batting average against.

Despite missing a recent start with a right hip strain, Biddle, who has been dealing with discomfort in the ailing area throughout his most recent outings, is confident that he'll be back soon and be as good as ever.

"It's nothing serious. I could pitch, but it's better to be safe than sorry. We don't want to push this and have it get any worse, so I'm taking break to let it heal," Biddle stated.

The 19-year-old Biddle and his BlueClaws teammates are in the midst of the playoff hunt with roughly four weeks left in the regular season, as they sit 2 1/2 games behind Kannapolis in the Northern division standings for the second half title. Lakewood has won the SAL championship in each of the previous two seasons.

Chosen by the Phillies with the 27th overall selection in the 2011 draft, Biddle, a Philadelphia native, sports a 5-7 overall record with a 3.20 ERA in his first full professional season.

Rappers in Phillies Caps

Weekend greetings to you phine pholks out there. Today's post features pictures of rappers wearing Phillies caps. Why rappers in Phillies caps, you ask? Because... Any other questions? We will start things off properly by going with a highly recognizable hip hop star. 50 Cent stays constantly relavant by consistantly creating radio friendly material to help sell (G) units, while he "keeps it real" by still rapping about the thug life he lived before becoming the 2nd highest earning black entertainer in America. 50 is seen here in a recent interview rocking a throw-back Phillies cap. Next up we'll use a throw-back screen cap from what may be the very first major appearance by a rapper wearing Phillies gear. Chuck D, of legendary rap group Public Enemy, wore a Phillies cap in the music video for rap anthem Fight The Power in 1989. The song was the lead single from the soundtrack for Spike Lee's film Do The Right Thing . Next up we'll go with some home gro

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. He whined about the abuse he'
