This Week in Phillies History: Randy Ready was ready

This Week in Phillies History: Randy Ready was ready

In 1991, Randy Ready made history at Veterans Stadium. After a week last week in which there wasn’t a whole lot to get excited about, This Week in Phillies History provided us with a number of great events to look back on with awe and wonder. Lefty recorded his 3,000th strikeout back in 1981 against the Montreal Expos, as noted by the Phillies on Twitter Thursday. Mr. 3,000 pic.twitter.com/38iZzlEytx— Philadelphia Phillies (@Phillies) April 29, 2020 Tim Wallach was his 3,000th victim, and Wallach was prominent in another great moment in Phils history as well.

On this date in Flyers history: “The Count” enjoys a career night, Ken Wregget tops Patrick Roy, and Bobby Clarke’s legend grows

Photo by Steve Babineau/NHLI via News, notes, and other musing from the history of the Orange and Black. The Flyers have been blessed with countless personalties on (and off) the ice in their history, and some of those personalties have led to some truly great nicknames along the way. You know most of them, from “Hound Dog” (Bob Kelly), “The Riverton Rifle” (Reggie Leach, “The Hammer” (Dave Schultz), and “The Fog” (Fred Shero). But there’s a couple Flyers nicknames that aren’t as well known, and on May 1st back in 1980 the legend of one grew in droves. That’d be...

Throwback Thursday: Remember when the Flyers wore these awful jerseys?

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ From Cooperalls to 3D and more, a look at some of the truly perplexing jerseys and jersey elements in Flyers history. While we continue to face extended time without actual, live sports, SB Nation is taking the time this week to talk jerseys in all forms and fashions. Though the Flyers have spent a bulk of their history with a rather defined look and logo, they’ve also fallen prey to some truly terrible jerseys in their franchise history. So on this throwback Thursday, we’re going to take them to task for those egregious lapses in judgement. The Flyers, but...

Who were the best pitchers in the 1970’s? More quizzes!

Photo by Focus on Sport/ You know you love these things Since you all loved the quiz last time so much about the hitters of the 1970’s, I thought we should try to the other side of the ball - pitching! Who were the best pitchers by Baseball Reference’s version of WAR from 1970 to 1979 in Phillies history? Take the quiz to find out. You should all at least be able to get the first one pretty easily, but the rest are quite difficult. Putting the quiz together, I could only recall 5 or 6 of the names that are on the list. So, I made the timing a little longer. Oh - I also added more...

The Flyers made some actual hockey news and did an actual hockey thing, so naturally this show opens with some Eagles chat a little talk about the aliens — they’re definitely real — before turning to Linus Sandin, the competition for the bottom six, the Flyers’ current and upcoming cap situation, and the best and worst of the NHL’s history of hockey jerseys.
