Jake Arrieta Had Some Harsh Words For His Teammates After Last Night’s Loss

BWanksCB - April 23, 2019

The Phillies are 1-4 on their current seven-game road trip after a listless 5-1 loss in Queens last night. A suspect defense was partly to blame, but the primary culprit was a flat offense that couldn’t get anything going against Mets starter Steven Matz less than a week after knocking him out of a start in Philadelphia without making an out.

The Phillies were already without the services of Odubel Herrera, Jean Segura, and Scott Kingery due to injury, and Bryce Harper was quickly out of the lineup after being ejected in the fourth inning by home plate umpire Mark Carlson, setting up this exchange, which you can view after the jump.

Bryce Harper, Carson Wentz, Rhys Hoskins, and Their Better Halves Took in the Sixers Game

Russ Joy - April 5, 2019

The Sixers were coming off a stretch of relatively meaningless games, including losses to Dallas Mavericks on Monday and Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday. The Phillies had an off-day following a gut-wrenching bullpen-induced collapse to the Washington Nationals. With all eyes on Thursday night’s nationally-televised game on TNT, it made sense that the city’s biggest stars would converge under the Wells Fargo Center roof to take in the Sixers’ game against the Milwaukee Bucks, who own the best record in the entire NBA.

Then it happened. We saw Carson Wentz chumming it up with Bryce Harper and Rhys Hoskins. They weren’t alone. Here’s an even better shot of Harper with his new #Phamily:

This warms my heart. It’s nice to see the heroes of our city out with their better halves. Bryce’s wife Kayla is absolutely beaming and I have to think the #phamily celebrated the news of the couple’s pregnancy. Sure, the Sixers lost, but it’s just a game. I’m looking forward to the next Phillies’ home game when Ben Simmons and Kendall Jenner chill in the Diamond Club with Mr. and Mrs. Wentz.

Bryce Harper Lives!

Russ Joy - March 17, 2019

While sitting at church this morning, I contemplated the fates of our Philly teams as of late: Nick Foles is officially gone; the Flyers have been all-but-officially eliminated from postseason contention; within a six-hour period this afternoon/evening the Sixers could fall to 0-2 against the Bucks and the Union could drop to 0-3 on the season when they take on the defending-MLS champion Atlanta United; oh yeah, Bryce Harper nearly had his foot/ankle shattered by some punk… The bright green of the Phanatic and orange of Gritty had faded to dull grey and sepia tones… Everything appeared to have been lost.

Well, hear ye, hear ye! On this Second Sunday of Lent, our [Phillies] savior is risen! Perhaps it’s the luck of the Irish, but here we are.

LOOK AT HIM! LOOK. AT. HIM.

The height of the jumps, the fluidity of his motion. It’s unprecedented. Anyway, he worked a solid first at-bat and… struck out looking. There’s still time.

Crossing Broadcast: The Bryce Harper Effect

Russ Joy - March 5, 2019

Bob and Russ discuss the lasting effect of signing Bryce Harper and how much of a draw it will be for casual fans. They break down the pressure Harper’s signing can take off Maikel Franco, Odubel Herrera, and Scott Kingery, project the lineup, the rotation, and discuss bullpen issues. The guys also look to the free agent market for possible reinforcements.
