Phils make one more trade before the end of the day

July 31, 2012

Phillies beat writer Todd Zolecki reported via Twitter that the Phillies made yet another trade.

Game Notes: Phillies at Nationals

July 31, 2012

It has been a sad trade deadline for the Phillies as they traded away two star outfielders in Shane Victorino and Hunter Pence, which only adds to a disappointing season that leaves them at the bottom of the NL East. Now that a rough series in Atlanta and the trade deadline have passed, the Fightin' Phils need to regroup and finish the season as best as they possibly can. They can start tonight in Washington, where they will face Stephen Strasburg, who is under an innings limit for the season that has not entirley been made clear. All while they do it with a dramatically different outfield.

Pence dealt to Giants

The Phillies continue to unload salary on the Tuesday trade deadline, which unfortunately means that rightfielder Hunter Pence is going to eat somewhere else.

Victorino to LA

The Dodgers acquiring Shane Victorino, as reported by numerous sources earlier in the day, is now official.

Welcome to 215 Baseball!

Dear Reader,

Today 215 Baseball officially launches, and I would like to welcome you to check out all the news this blogs has to offer on the Philadelphia Phillies throughout the rest of the Major League Season.  It has, unfortunately, been a rough season for the Phillies. However, the season is not over yet. There is still plenty of headlines for the Phillies to make, especially with the trade deadline quickly approaching. I plan to keep this blog updated daily and make it the best it can posibly be. Hopefully, this blog will become a reliable source for your Phillies related news. I promise to update this blog when a new story presents itself as soon as possible. However, there are some things you should take into consideration when I say that. First of all, I am an incoming college freshman, so I expect that school will be taking up quite a bit of my time. Also, I have a job that keeps me away from a computer. At times it will get tough, but I will do what I can to keep readers updated with all that goes on with the Phillies. This is not the first time that I have kept blogs on Philadelphia Sports Teams. Previously, I ran a series of blogs under the name On the Board Philly, but I had to stop due to some personal issues I had to work out. After I resolved these issues, I decided to start fresh rather than going back after a long absence. Then 215 Sports was born. You can still check out On the Board Philly at these web addresses:




In fact, I encourage you to check out those blogs. Although they are outdated, they provide a good example of how this blog, and the rest of 215 Sports, will be maintained. I am not doing this for money or fame, this is just a labor of love from a die-hard Phillies Phan.

Play Ball!
