Jeremy Hellickson Revitalized Himself With an Old Weapon

How Many Changeups Can You Throw In A Row?

2016 Phillies Exit Interview: Aaron Altherr

After an injury ruined 2016, where does Altherr fit with the Phillies

Exit Interview: Vincent Velasquez

When you strike out 16 in your second start it is hard to have reasonable expectations

Phillies 2016 Player Preview: Darin Ruf

He's going to play baseball on days Ryan Howard doesn't play or so we're told.

2015 Phillies Player Review: Revere and Blanco

Listen my children, and you shall hear, of Andres Blanco and Ben Revere.

2015 Phillies Player Review: Ryan Howard

Ryan Howard struggled in 2015, but he had some highlight reel moments, too.

Phillies Player Review: Maikel Franco

Yippee! I get to write about one of the Phillies players who were actually good last year! Hip hip hooray!

2015 Phillies Player Preview: The Rest of the Pen

The good, the bad and the oh so ugly: the back end of the Phillies' bullpen.

2015 Phillies player preview: David Buchanan

David Buchanan is following up a solid first year in the Majors with an impressive spring. Why he could be exactly what the Phillies need this year.

2015 Phillies Player Preview: Jonathan Papelbon

Despite concerns about his declining fastball velocity, Jonathan Papelbon continued his run as one of the most consistently effective relievers in the game in 2014. Will he continue to defy the omens of velocity decline in 2015?

2015 Phillies Player Preview: Ryan Howard

Is there any way in which Ryan Howard is a productive player in 2015? It depends on your expectations.

2015 Phillies Player Preview: Ken Giles

Ken Giles was one of few bright spots for the Phillies in 2014, which makes him all but guaranteed to set the league on fire or break our hearts in 2015. Lettuce pray.

2015 Phillies Player Preview: Freddy Galvis

Freddy Galvis will be the shortstop for the Phillies in 2015, and he will ride a Space Unicorn around the bases during at least one walk off homer. The rest of the season? Eh.....

Phillies Exit Interview: Jimmy Rollins

I put this off long enough. It's now entirely appropriate to write the 2014 exit interview for the greatest short stop in Phillies history.

Phillies Exit Interview: Ryne Sandberg

Ryne Sandberg, having just returned home from a routine cosmetic dental procedure, joins The Good Phight to discuss respect. honor, and playing the game the right way. Surprisingly, he also references Harry Potter and Sublime.

Phillies Exit Interview: Jerome Williams

After arriving as a desperation waiver-wire pickup in August, Jerome Williams went on to outperform every Phillies starter not named Cole Hamels over the last month-and-a-half of the season. And guess what? He'll be back for more in 2015!

Phillies Exit Interview: Carlos Ruiz

Despite concerns entering 2014 over age, injuries, and his 2013 drop-off in production, Carlos Ruiz reminded us why he's a fan favorite with a return to form for the Phillies.

Phillies Exit Interview: Jake Diekman

The lanky left-hander with a mid-90s fastball helped turn the bullpen into a pleasant surprise in 2014.

Phillies Exit Interview: Cliff Lee

2014 may just have destroyed Cliff Lee.

Phillies Exit Interview: A.J. Burnett

Everyone's favorite pater familias joins The Good Phight to discuss, among other things, his family, his son's post-secondary educational aspirations, fidelitas, and the Family Values Tour.

Phillies Exit Interview: Domonic Brown

Dom Brown says he had one bad month. You be the judge.

Phillies Exit Interviews: Ben Revere

Ben Revere weighs in on the value of averageness, his relative youth, and clears the air on his midseason abandonment of Pharrell Williams' "Happy" as his walk-up music.

Phillies exit interview: Ken Giles

Suddenly, the Closer of the Future appears. What do you do? WHAT DO YOU DO?!

Phillies exit interview: Marlon Byrd

While Rome burned around him, Marlon Byrd had an adequate season as the team's lone power hitter.

2014 Phillies Preview: Ruben Amaro Jr.

Let's see what the numbers have to say about Ruben Amaro Jr.'s tenure as the Phillies GM. (Hint: it's not good!)

2014 Player Preview: Jimmy Rollins

Jimmy Rollins' 2013 was his worst since his sophomore season way back in 2002. Was it a blip or is it a sign of things to come?

2014 Phillies Player Preview: The Supercomputer

So the Phillies might be buying a supercomputer, right? I guess we ought to preview its season, too.

2014 Phillies Player Preview: The Bullpen

Much of the focus will remain on Jonathan Papelbon's ever-slowing fastball and Antonio Bastardo's ability to throw strikes and not get suspended for cheating. But here, we look at the rest of the guys who could impact the 'pen in 2014.

2014 Phillies Player Preview: Antonio Bastardo

I will go through this entire preview without making a butt joke.

2014 Phillies Player Preview: Chase Utley

I like watching Chase Utley play baseball.

2014 Previews - Oh God Why Did I Choose Papelbon

This probably seemed like a good idea at the time. Philly's $58 dollar man is back for another round of woeful autoilluminated riverdance, but maybe we can find a bright light in that tunnel of shame.

2014 Phillies Player Previews: the coaching staff

Who the hell are these people.
