PHILADELPHIA -- Bryce Harper's teammates tossed out many labels for the Phillies’ superstar following his National League Championship Series-clinching home run on Sunday at Citizens Bank Park. The Showman. MV3. The ultimate bro. A dude. They can add NLCS Most Valuable Player to the list.

PHILADELPHIA -- Ryan Howard. Jimmy Rollins. Chase Utley. Jayson Werth. Matt Stairs. From the moment first baseman Rhys Hoskins became a Phillie, he heard the names and he saw the photos. Those legends had left quite the legacy as members of the 2008 World Series-winning ballclub.

October 28, 2022

Bryce Harper's go-ahead home run in the eighth inning of NLCS Game 5 that secured a 4-3 win over the Padres and an NL pennant is most definitely playing on a loop in Phillies fans' households right at this moment (and probably until the World Series begins on Friday). Well,

PHILADELPHIA -- When Zack Wheeler felt some discomfort in his right forearm in mid-August, he didn't want to go on the injured list, let alone miss a full month of the stretch run. After all, the Phillies were in the midst of a tight National League Wild Card race, and

PHILADELPHIA – The Padres coveted Josh Hader for years. General manager A.J. Preller tried to acquire Hader on multiple occasions, but the asking price was always sky high for one of the best closers in baseball. This August, the Brewers finally lowered their ask for the three-time Trevor Hoffman reliever

'Great year for us': Padres fall short in NLCS

October 23, 2022

PHILADELPHIA -- Say this about the 2022 Padres: They went for it. They made perhaps the biggest Trade Deadline splash in the sport's history.

Is Sunday going to be the last day with multiple Major League Baseball games until next March? If the Yankees can’t extend their ALCS with the Astros or the Padres can’t do the same against the Phillies in the NLCS, it will be. It’s not dark yet, folks … but

October 23, 2022

PHILADELPHIA -- The Padres have thrived when counted out this postseason. Most people didn’t have them beating the Mets in the National League Wild Card Series. Even fewer had them getting past the NL Division Series and the Dodgers, who dominated San Diego during the regular season. But now, the

October 23, 2022

The Padres need to find a way to get the ball back into Josh Hader's hands. Hader has found his fastball, and it's made him the postseason's most dominant closer. The left-hander has closed out five of San Diego's six postseason wins -- earning the save in four of them

Padres' pitching struggles push them to edge of elimination

October 23, 2022

PHILADELPHIA -- A week ago, in the aftermath of their National League Division Series victory over the Dodgers, the Padres set about mapping out plans for Philadelphia. Pitching-wise, at least, the NLCS seemed fairly straightforward. With one caveat: Game 4 would be a challenge.
