  1. Grading the Philadelphia Phillies for the month of April

    Grading the Philadelphia Phillies for the month of April

    By Mike Prince, Sportswriter

    One month of the 2011 Major League Baseball season has passed and there are a number of certainties and a number of uncertainties surrounding the Philadelphia Phillies.

    There has been some superb pitching and there has been some disappointing pitching. There has been some streaky hitting and there has been a whole lot of untimely offensive slumping. But one thing is ...
  2. Confessions Of A Phillies Fan

    Here is a piece I wrote for the Citizens Bankers last Thursday. Thought I'd share it here.

    I have a confession to make.

    So I'm sitting here, on a chilly March Thursday, anxiously awaiting opening day. Sure there is a Spring Training game, and we all want to know how Luis Castillo will do. We all want to know how Chase Utley will recover from his knee issues. We all wonder if Domonic Brown really is the future. We hope that Brad Lidge and Placido Polanco get ...

  3. Happy Birthday To Youse

    What a difference a year makes.

    We're all a little older, a little rounder and a little least those of us who still have a head of glorious hair, like me. Cast out into the desert by megalomaniacal circumstances, we wandered hither and yon, made some pit stops in a few makeshift canteens and finally funneled into this, the best place to talk sports on the internet - Philly Sports Central.

    On March 22, 2010, we were a city awash in a sea of uncertainty, ...
  4. Hey Justin...Crossing Board sucks

    I'll admit it, when Justin first announced that Crossing Broad was becoming a partner with PSC I thought it was a good idea.

    My reasoning for liking it was that it was a blog I had heard of, but not read, and it had lots of readers. Those readers would be directed to PSC and we would get some new members out of it. Seeing that CB is on the edgy side of the blogs that are out there, I was sure we'd get a few members that fit into our style of posting. The problem is, it hasn't worked, ...
  5. An Exaggerated, Overwrought, Way-to-Long Summary of The Karate Kid

    This past weekend, I had glorius opportunity to re-watch an American 80’s classic, The Karate Kid, starring Pat Morita, Ralph Macchio, and Eilsabeth Shue. Released in 1984, directed by Rocky director John G. Avildsen, who later when on to direct the thrilling sequels (except for The Next Karate Kid, my man don’t do bitches), this is an exciting story of a young man in a new place who wins the hearts of those around him by kicking their assses. How does he learn those ass kicking skills? Dumb ...

  6. Baseball Reparations: Our 40 Acres and a Mule

    By now, many of you have heard the classic rant by D.C radio host Chad Dukes after the Redskins were embarrassed by the Eagles on Monday Night Football ( During the 13 minute rant about the depressing state of his favorite football team, he screams several times that he demands “Redskin Reparations” for all the pain and agony that Lil Danny Snyder has inflicted on him. He may come off as a raving lunatic, but it’s an interesting thought. He demands ...
  7. Bobra-booey

    And so it begins...again. It's that marvelous time of year when the confluence of the four main team sports meet, criss-cross and over-talk each other like characters in a Robert Altman film. It's the triple biorhythm peak, the harmonic convergence and hitting all the green lights on the way home from work all rolled into one. For the pro sports junkie, baseball, football, hockey - and soon basketball - will all be in session at the same time. It's a time of year when the mettle of relationships ...
  8. Hard to Believe, Halladay

    By Mike Prince, Sportswriter

    Philadelphia - When Roy Halladay came to Philadelphia, he not only brought with him the best arm in baseball, but he brought with him an unwavering confidence that allows him to go out and perform like he did on Wednesday.

    He had waited his entire life for this. He came out of the dugout, walked up to the mound and began an illustration of dominance that was so remarkable, even the man himself may not have been able to comprehend what ...

  9. Happy, Happy, Roy, Roy

    By Kevin Franklin


    It reads backwards the same way: Wow.

    It's been several hours since the Phillies elbowed the Reds in the sternum, 4-0, in the opening salvo of the best of five National League Divisional Series. Several hours after Roy Halladay kicked open the record books and cleat-stamped his name. Several hours after speechless fans, players and media types lost the words to describe just what an amazing performance this was.

    Maybe ...
  10. Phillies Playoff Preview 2010

    By Mike Prince, Sportswriter

    Rewind back in the beginning of July. Did anyone really think we would be where we are right now? Did anyone think we would be getting ready to sit down and watch our team – the team with the best record in baseball – host game one of the National League Division Series at Citizens Bank Park? Did anyone think our favorite team would be the odds-on favorite to not only advance to the World Series, but to win it all.

    It wasn’t that long ago ...
