How the Phillies Have Enough Money to Compete in Hamilton Sweepsteaks

Originally posted this morning at Phillies Nation: Many of the questions submitted for the PN Mailbag focused primarily on the likelihood or the ability of the Phillies to sign Josh Hamilton.

New over at Phillies Nation: The Washington Nationals stirred up some publicity earlier this morning by beginning the sale of single-game tickets for one singular series, May 4-6 versus our beloved Fightin’ Phils.

Phillies’ Pitches Per PAs Down from Likely and Unlikely Sources

It is advantageous at any level of baseball for a hitter to force a pitcher to throw more pitches to them during an at-bat.
