Phillies Option Hoby Milner

Phillies Option Hoby Milner

The corresponding move is yet to be announced, but smart money is on Tommy Hunter’s arrival Following Saturday’s afternoon’s win over the Pirates - the Phils’ third straight and twelfth in their last 15 overall - the Phillies announced that left-handed reliever Hoby Milner had been optioned to Lehigh Valley. Although the move wasn’t officially announced in the wake of that announcement, it seems this move is a harbinger of the arrival of offseason acquisition Tommy Hunter. At first blush, exchanging a lefty for a righty and leaving Adam Morgan as the lone left-handed pitcher on...

Sixers steal one in Miami, take a 3-1 series lead

Sixers steal one in Miami, take a 3-1 series lead

The Sixers were able to bring the defense in the 4th quarter and sweep the Heat on their home court. The Sixers won 106-102 over the Miami Heat in a game that was as physical as everyone expected. Four technical fouls were handed out, and James “Bloodsport” Johnson tried to intimidate Ben Simmons in a second-quarter skirmish in which the surefire Rookie of the Year only smirked back. The first three-quarters of the game felt like the old Sixers, the Sixers before their record-breaking winning streak and outstanding 2018 home court performance. It felt like the Sixers of…December....

For Marc Zumoff, the 76ers' ups and downs don't matter

Those years when ratings, spirits and victory totals were low, people tended to feel sorry for Zumoff. At the gym, he'd be asked how he could tolerate such suffering - trying to enliven 82 broadcasts for 76ers teams that, with a mostly unappealing cast of characters, won 18, 19, 10 games.

Game Thread 4/21: Pirates at Phillies

Aaron Nola gives the Phillies a good shot at improving their record at home to 8-1. Once all the heat dies down on Rhys Hoskins’ pair of base-running blunders last night, maybe we can actually watch some baseball. What’s that? No one is complaining about those? Huh. Well, anyway, Nola gets the start today with the chance to give the Phillies a series win before Sunday’s matinee banger. This team is producing all kinds of encouraging statistical tidbits. Here’s one: Through 18 games, the Phillies have allowed 0 or 1 runs six times.Last season, it took them 41 games just to do it...

BSH Radio reacts to the 4-2 win over the Penguins

It was a fun night and we had a good chat over on the ‘book In a must-win game that saw Valtteri Filppula center the top line, Michal Neuvirth start his first game in a long time, and Sean Couturier hobble on a single leg, the Flyers pulled off the improbable and pushed this series to six games. There were a lot of decisions made ahead of and during this game that left us head-scratching, but why focus on the negative when your team came out and did what they needed to do?
