About Phils Baseball

Welcome to Phils Baseball!

My name is Scott Butler, and I planted the seeds of this little old blog back in 2005, when it existed as no more than a Phillies win/loss chart and daily game log. In some ways, the charts and game logs are the lifeblood of this blog and tell a great story on their own.

Phils Baseball now exists as a blog for your Philadelphia Phillies, bringing you the stats and insight for the oldest, continuous, one-name, one-city franchise in all of professional sports.

I also recently published my first book, So You Think You're a Philadelphia Phillies Fan? It's a fun read filled with stories of Phillies players, teams, and managers from 134 years of Phillies baseball. Here's a video of my spot on Behind The Pinstripes with Scott Palmer for the final episode of the 2018 season.

You may notice that there are virtually no ads on this site, and that is by design. For a relatively small site like this one, I see no need to clutter the site with unappealing ads just to make a few bucks. As a result, I actually lose just under $150 per year to run this site, which is totally fine with me. I absolutely love running a Phillies blog and sharing my passion with other fans. I would be thrilled, though, if you would buy a copy of my book.
