When the 2022 season begins, Didi Gregorius will be 32-years old. While that’s not old age, in baseball terms, it’s old enough to make people wonder if the end is approaching when you have an off season, which Gregorius did in 2021. With 13 home runs, Gregorius hit the fewest of any full season in […]
The Phillies got to work on their off-season plans even before the regular season was even over. The first casualties were coaches Joe Dillon and Juan Castro.

In his first outing last month, Medina allowed one hit and struck out three over two innings of work, needing just 25 pitches to […]
Phillies team president Andy MacPhail announced to the media today that he would be stepping down from his position with the team following the 2021 season. The longtime major league executive said he may leave sooner should the team find someone to take his position.
