Some Phillies Links For You, September 9, 2010: Stranglehold, Lame Jimmy, BlueClaws Win

Let us take a moment to praise Charlie Manuel | HardballTalk
Maybe not the best day to run this, after last night's "difficulties," but Charlie's level-headedness has preserved the Phillies' season in many ways.

Phillies undecided on fifth starter
Oh man, Kyle Kendrick with the martyr act. Jeeeeeezus...

Paul Hagen: Victorino's on-field contributions catching up to his charitable works

Philadelphia Phillies broadcast crew doesn't match team's success

May pitches Lakewood to Game 1 win

The 20-year-old May set a franchise playoff record with 13 strikeouts in 6 2/3 scoreless innings. A year ago in the playoffs, he threw 11 shutout innings in two starts. May walked one and allowed four hits Wednesday as Lakewood took the first game in the best-of-three series.

Nice to see that Trevor May is already a big-game pitcher! (ducks)

This went up over the weekend but it definitely deserves more attention. Zoo With Roy, kids.

Lowe beats Pirates again as Braves win 9-3
Definitely too much to ask for a sweep from the Pirates. Two-out-of-three is awfully good for such a bad team.

Troy Tulowitzki Hits Two Home Runs In Rockies 9-2 Rout Over Reds - Purple Row
