Phillies career leaders can be found here: hitting and pitching.

Three of these should happen tonight:
- Chase Utley passes Tony Taylor for most games by a Phillies second baseman.
- Cole Hamels moves into 7th place on the Philllies strikeout list (and 3rd among lefthanders).
- Charlie Manuel manages his 1,500th game.

Jimmy Rollins
These are milestones he will probably reach this year barring injury.  He needs...
- 60 At Bats (524 total) to tie Larry Bowa for 3rd at 6,815
- 23 games (136) to tie Del Ennis for 5th at 1,630
- 34 singles (123) to tie Mike Schmidt for 5th at 1,219
- 9 Ks (57) to tie Johnny Callision for 7th (854)
- 12 walks (62) to tie Greg Luzinski for 10th (572)
- 1 triple (2nd of the year) to become the 4th Phillie to reach 100, and the first Phillie to do so since Sherry Magee in 1911.
See here for a more comprehensive list of Rollins' march up the charts.

Chase Utley
- On Wednesday, Utley tied Tony Taylor for most games at second base for the Phillies, at 1,003.  Tonight he'll take over sole possession of #1.
- Utley will probably not reach any other milestones this season, so I will take this chance to mention again that he broke the team career HBP record back in early 2009.  The top 4 in Phillies history:
1) Utley 133, 2) Lieberthal 88, 3) Delahanty 80, 4) Schmidt 79

Ryan Howard
- Needs 9 more games (125 for the year) to play in 1,000.

Raul Ibanez
- Needs 2 HRs (18 for the year) to reach 250 in his career.

He's also climbing MLB's All-Time lists for ages 30-39:
- With 920 RBIs in his 30s, he needs 9 more (71 for the year) to tie Mike Schmidt for 9th all-time on the 30-39 list with 929.  Getting there, he will pass Stan Musial (926), and Gary Sheffield and Fred McGriff (927).
- With 336 doubles in his 30s, he needs 10 more (33 for the year) to tie Sam Rice for 6th all-time on the 30-39 list with 344. On the way he would pass Charlie Gehringer (337), Honus Wagner and Hal McRae (340), and Edgar Martinez and Paul Molitor (344).

Cole Hamels
- Needs 5 Ks (155 total) to tie Curt Simmons for 7th on the Phillies list at 1,052.
- That will also put him in 3rd among lefties, behind Steve Carlton (3,031) and Chris Short (1,585).

Ryan Madson
- He needs 7 more relief appearances (49 total) to tie Tug McGraw's team record of 460.

Brad Lidge
This is unlikely to happen unless Madson has another wife somewhere who is about to have a baby, but Lidge needs:
- 2 saves (3 total) to tie Mitch Williams for 3rd on the Phils all-time list with 102
- 3 saves to tie Steve Bedrosian for 2nd with 103

Charlie Manuel
- Tonight's game will be the 1,500th managed by Manuel, including his time in Cleveland.  There are 11 current managers with more games managed, but none of those has a higher winning percentage.  The all-time list is here, active managers in bold.

Next for Charlie:
- Game #132 (August 28th, barring rainouts) will tie him with Danny Ozark for 3rd on the Phillies list (1,104).
- Win #92 will tie him with Harry Wright for 2nd on the Phillies (636).
- Win #102 will tie him with Gene Mauch for the team career record of  646.
