6/29/2015 | Hamels, Phils set to battle Jungmann, Crew

6/29/2015 | MacPhail evaluating GM, manager positions

Andy MacPhail, introduced as the next Phillies president, plans to spend the next three-plus months evaluating the entire baseball operations department.

Pete Mackanin is the interim manager through the homestand, which ends Thursday.


6/29/2015 | Phillies signaling change in business model

The Phillies formally introduced Andy MacPhail, who has had success as an executive with three different franchises, as their next club president Monday. At first glance, it looked like a safe, conservative decision. A tee shot down the middle rather than trying for the green with a more risky drive over a water hazard. A second glance, to MacPhail's immediate right on the dais at Citizens Bank Park, disproved that assumption.


6/29/2015 | Sabermetrics to be a part of MacPhail's Phils

With his stellar June, Maikel Franco is making a legitimate case to be the Phillies' representative at the 2015 MLB All-Star Game. But he'll need some help from the fans by using the 2015 Esurance MLB All-Star Game Ballot until Thursday at 11:59 p.m. ET.


6/29/2015 | Brewers' bats come alive to down Phillies

For the Brewers Monday, the sixth inning was just a better version of the first five.

Milwaukee never looked back from that point, defeating the Phillies, 7-4.

6/28/2015 | Gonzalez shows flashes in deepest outing

Severino Gonzalez picked up the win in Sunday evening's 8-5 victory over the Nationals in Game 2 of a doubleheader at Citizens Bank Park, but the Phillies need to see more from him if he expects to be part of their future.


6/28/2015 | Sixth-inning issues costly for Correia, Phillies

6/28/2015 | Strasburg looks strong as Nats take Game 1

He allowed four hits, two runs, one walk and struck out nine over seven innings in a 3-2 victory over the Phillies in Game 1 of a doubleheader. Phillies right fielder Jeff Francoeur hit a solo homer and had an RBI single to account for Philadelphia's two runs, as Kevin Correia allowed three runs (one earned) over 5 1/3 innings.


6/28/2015 | Francoeur sparks offense, lapses on defense

Jeff Francoeur provided most of the Phillies' entertainment in Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader at Citizens Bank Park. He homered, hit an RBI single and made a costly fielding error in a 3-2 loss to the Nationals.


6/28/2015 | Prospect Joseph switching to first base

It seemed inevitable that Tommy Joseph would need to change positions to continue his baseball career. The change became official this week. The Phillies are moving Joseph from catcher to first base, following a string of concussions he sustained behind the plate since they acquired him in July 2012.


6/27/2015 | Phils rained out, set for twin bill vs. Nats

6/26/2015 | Phils go down swinging to game's 'best pitcher'

Aaron Harang called Max Scherzer "the best pitcher in baseball right now," and that thought seemed to be on the Phillies' minds in a 5-2 loss to the Nationals on Friday. But Freddy Galvis broke up a no-hit bid with a double in the sixth and Ben Revere took Scherzer deep in the eighth.


6/26/2015 | Losing takes hefty toll on old-school Sandberg

Ryne Sandberg's decision to step down as Phillies manager on Friday, less than two years after taking over the team late in the 2013 season, was stunning. That he resigned after pouring so much of himself into the quest says more than words ever could about how the drip-drip-drip of losing must have gnawed at him.
