Phillies, phans gather at annual Phestival for ALS patients

This year's Phestival raised a record $867,670, surpassing last year's total by more than $100,000. Funds will be used to provide transportation for about 900 local patients, improve care services and fund much-needed research at Pennsylvania Hospital and Hershey Medical Center.

Good on the Phillies and everyone who participated. Really helps put a losing streak in perspective.

Rich Hofmann: Phillies need new face on the mound

It is true that Brad Lidge will have to come back and be Brad Lidge again, or none of this will work. It is also true that Jimmy Rollins will have to be some semblance of Jimmy Rollins again or this offense never will reach its potential, especially in the absence of the injured Raul Ibanez.

This is a good point I've been trying to make. We need certain players to elevate their game, or it won't matter if there's another starting pitcher. I'd rather not dump the farm for a Jason Marquis type in that case.
