Sources: Pedro Flying to Philly
Pedro Martinez may be touching down in Philadelphia Monday to meet with Phillies officials, sources told NBC10's John Clark Sunday.

When he was still Pedro | Philadelphia Daily News | 07/13/2009

But there were seasons, including 1999 when he went 23-4, when he was among the game's best.

Uh, how about arguably the  "greatest season ever for a pitcher"?  With the only argument being whether he was better in 2000?

Phillies Notes: Cole Hamels remains an enigma
And here come the "Cole Hamels is a space cadet" stories.

Burritos aren't safe on their plate

Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels, a Rancho Bernardo High School graduate who was last year's World Series MVP, has a ritual whenever he returns to town. "When I get off the plane, I go get a burrito," Hamels said, adding that his favorite spot is El Indio in San Diego.

And now there's a cause! Cole, stop eating burritos!!  Sincerely, The American Hamburger Institute

Kyle Drabek throws well at Futures Game
Prospect throws ten pitches in a perfect 2nd inning. Yohan Flande allows two hits and no runs in his frame.

R-Phils' Michael Taylor is more than star power
Bill Conlin is in looovvvve... but now so am I.

John Smallwood: Halladay would equal World Series titles for Phillies
Wow, let's get ahead of ourselves just a little bit...

Paul Gutierrez: Midseason awards intentionally give snub to the East Coast
Great story... (rolls eyes)

Schmidt the best ever?
If you don't agree, you don't know Michael Jack Schmidt.
