Phillies 2018 Preview: 1B and 3B

The 2017-2018 off-season was a particularly tough one for avid baseball fans. The traditionally hot stove has run cold (for a variety of reasons that have been well covered, as there hasn't been anything else to cover), leaving us with little to snack on in between the meals of Actual Baseball Games.

Tool: Live Odds for Super Bowl Squares

If you were to flip a coin 10 times, what are the odds that it'd land heads every time? Pretty low, right? Maybe 1 out of 1,024 times you'll see that outcome - not something you'd like to bet on. But let's say you've already flipped the coin 9 times, and it's come up heads … Continue reading Tool: Live Odds for Super Bowl Squares

Week 25 Recap: The Phillies Are Already Better.

Week 17, 18, and 19 Recaps: Trades, Winning, and the Loss of a Franchise Icon

Week 13 and 14 Recap: Ain’t the Sharpest Tools in the Sheds

With every passing week, it was getting more ridiculous just how consistently bad the team was. That streak has come to an end … Continue reading Week 13 and 14 Recap: Ain’t the Sharpest Tools in the Sheds
