Phillies 2015 New Year's Resolution: Make the Playoffs?
by Scott Butler 1/4/15

The Phillies will probably not make the playoffs in 2015. Yeah, real shocker, huh?

But stranger things have happened.

After six straight losing seasons and a pitching staff that finished dead last in the National League, good luck finding someone who predicted an NL pennant for the Phillies in 1993.

What would it take for the Phils to make the playoffs in 2015? Well, a Hail Mary would be a good start.

Let's see what massaging of the numbers it will take to put the Phils in the postseason.

Larry Shenk and 5 decades of Phillies baseball
by Scott Butler 1/17/15

Larry Shenk PhilliesA certain Phillies’ Hall of Fame third baseman once referred to Philadelphia as "the only city where you can experience the thrill of victory and the agony of reading about it the next day."

One man who understands that statement perhaps more than anyone in Phillies history is Larry Shenk. For the former director of PR, last October marked 51 years with the Phils.

A deal seemed likely as of yesterday when Jayson Stark tweeted that the only hold-up from moving Pappy was money. That hold-up is apparently a rather big one as Brewers general manager Doug Melvin told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel yesterday that talks have slowed. “Whatever traction there was seems to have dissipated," Melvin said.
