Oswalt hit hard in Phillies’ loss to Marlins

August 27 CSN Philly 

The Phillies lost a game on Friday night. OK, so what. Losses happen, even to the best team in the majors.  The real story of this game wasn’t the defeat. It was how Roy Oswalt pitched. Maybe it was nothing. Maybe it was just an off night. But for some reason, Oswalt took a step backward in the Phillies’ 6-5 loss to the Florida Marlins.  Gone was the crackling fastball that helped him strike out nine Washington Nationals over eight shutout innings in his previous start.  Gone was the command.

Lenny Dykstra charged with indecent exposure

August 26 CSN Philly

Former New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Lenny Dykstra has been charged in Los Angeles for allegedly exposing himself to women he met on Craigslist.  The city attorney’s office said Thursday the 48-year-old former baseball star could face up to six months in jail and a $1,000 fine for each indecent exposure count.


Due to the weather caused by Hurricane Irene, the Phillies game against the Florida Marlins that was supposed to be played at 1:05 pm Saturday has been moved to September 15.  It will be played as part of a day-night double header along with the already postponed game from Saturday night.  

The 15th was supposed to be the Phillies last day off before the season ends and the playoffs begin.  This just means the team needs to clinch very early, allowing for guys to take multiple days off to rest up for the march to the World Series.
