RHP Prospect David Buchanan Footage

Lakewood pitching coach Steve Schrenk watches David Buchanan get loose

Selected by the Phillies in the 7th round of the amateur draft in 2010, righty hurler David Buchanan has quickly made a name for himself in the developmental ranks. The 22-year-old had an outstanding season this year, as he earned himself a spot as the starting pitcher for the north division team in the South Atlantic League All-Star Game while posting an 11-5 record with a 3.38 ERA through 20 starts with the Class A Lakewood BlueClaws.

Buchanan's exceptional efforts in his first full season as a pro also earned him a promotion to High A level Clearwater, where he went 3-2 with a 3.90 ERA in 6 outings.

A Georgia native, Buchanan grew up as a Braves fan, but is more than happy to be a part of the Philadelphia organization, home to several pitchers that he admires the same way he looked up to the famed Atlanta starting pitching staff of the 1990's.

The 6-foot-3-inch 190-pound Buchanan sports a low-90's fastball along with a sinker and a slider.

In August, Buchanan ranked 16th among Phillies prospects in a survey of minor league experts conducted by The Reading Eagle.

Below is some footage of the man known to his teammates as "Buck Nasty", warming up prior to a 2011 start in Lakewood.

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. He whined about the abuse he'

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. In Saturday night's (Sunday morning's?) 12-7 defeat at the hands of the Diamondbacks, the Phillies sent nine pitchers and two position players to the mound to make it through the lengthy affair.

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
