Quote from Charlie Yesterday:
“I’ll say about two weeks, but it may be at least three weeks”
Wilson Valdez nailed a walk-off RBI single in the 11th inning to give the Phillies their eighth straight victory, 3-2, and complete a three-game sweep over the D-backs!
The Astros and Phillies reached a deal to send Oswalt to the Phillies for Happ and Minor League outfielder Anthony Gose and shortstop Jonathan Villar.
The Domonic Brown era begins tonight at Citizens Bank Park.
The Phillies placed Shane Victorino on the DL with a strained left abdominal muscle. He had a MRI exam this morning morning, which revealed the severity of the injury.
6 Wins in a Row, 3.5 back for 1st in the NL East, 2.5 back in the Wild Card. Bats are alive and well. Good Night to be a Phils Fan!
Great Game! Phils ran their win streak to 6 with a 9-5 win over the D-backs! Keep it Going Fellas! Big Home Runs from Werth, Howard and Ransom!
Lidge Made us sweat it out but the Phils win again, making it 5 in a row! Beat the Rockies 5-4.
Back to Back Shutouts for the Phils! Halladay gets his 11th win.
Double Digit in Hits! Let’s Keep it Going!
Hitting Coach Milt Thompson Fired – Moyer has a sprained ulnar collateral ligament and a strained flexor pronator muscle – Will go on DL, May Need Surgey and be done for the season.
Whether or not he was simply playing coy with reporters, Phillies outfielder Jayson Werth said he had not heard any trade rumors involving his name, and his focus remains solely on playing for Philadelphia.
“What rumors?” Werth asked before Friday’s game. “I haven’t really heard anything. I don’t read those sites.”
Baseball sources told MLB.com that a rumor circulating early on Friday that Werth may be headed to the Yankees for starting pitcher Javier Vazquez was untrue.
Speculation is nothing new for Werth, a 31-year-old right fielder who will be a free agent after this season. And while Friday’s proposed move doesn’t appear to have teeth, rumors are not likely to die down anytime soon as the July 31 non-waiver Trade Deadline approaches.
“It’s definitely part of the game,” Werth said. “If something like that happens, I’ll find out about it and I’ll deal with it then. But right now, my focus is playing baseball for the Philadelphia Phillies and my teammates here and winning ballgames.”
