The Phillies dropped a series, but we’ve got a few shots of them looking good. The Philadelphia Phillies finished their home stand on Sunday afternoon, looking to take the final game of a three-game set against the Padres. The hometown team got off to the start they wanted, with a RBI double from Jean Segura, who would later double to knot the score at two in the 6th inning. Jason Vargas threw well, but was lifted in the 6th in favor of a right-on-right matchup. Recently-acquired Jared Hughes gave up a solo home run to Austin Hedges, which would end up being the deciding run. Bryce...

Realmuto propels offense in Phillies win over Cubs

Before Tuesday's series opener with the Cubs, the top storyline involving the Phillies centered around the return of Charlie Manuel to the dugout as the club's new hitting coach. As if the 100-plus games weren't enough of an indication that a change was necessary, the Phils whiffed 15 times and finished Tuesday night 0-for-7 with runners in scoring position.J.T. Realmuto provided just enough offense though, with a solo shot in the fifth and a go-ahead run-scoring double in the seventh, to propel the Phils to a much needed 4-2 victory over the Cubs at Citizens Bank Park.Jason Vargas...

Heather Barry - SB Nation MLB © Treasure some moments from a nice Phillies win. On Tuesday, the Philadelphia Phillies returned home from a tough road trip hoping to change their luck. Jason Vargas took the mound against the Chicago Cubs in the heat of a playoff chase. Vargas threw six innings, only giving up two runs in the process. He’d factor in as a no-decision, but he was able to get the ball to the bullpen in the seventh. The offense was paced by J.T. Realmuto, who homered in the fifth and had a clutch RBI double in the seventh that plated Andrew Knapp. Roman Quinn hit a clutch...

Strikeouts don’t matter: Phillies 4, Cubs 2

Strikeouts don’t matter: Phillies 4, Cubs 2

Jason Vargas wasn’t as dominant as his counterpart, but he was equally effective | Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports The Phillies overcame 15 strikeouts thanks to a big night from J.T. Realmuto On the day that the team fired its hitting coach, the Phillies’ lineup showed just why a change was made by striking out 15 times. However, they were able to overcome those strikeouts thanks to strong pitching and a big night from J.T. Realmuto. Cubs starter Jose Quintana was overpowering, striking out 14 batters in his six innings. That set a new record. Jose Quintana, with his 13th K, now has...

Ex-Met Jason Vargas struggles as Phillies fall to Diamondbacks

Jason Vargas is still helping the Mets, even though he’s no longer with the team. The former Mets starter, who was traded to Philadelphia before the trade deadline, allowed four runs in five innings in the Phillies’ 6-1 loss to the Diamondbacks in Phoenix. The defeat helped the surging Mets, who now trail the Phillies...

And the Mets, now, apparently. Attempting to keep that lead intact is Jason Vargas, who in his first Phillies appearance threw six innings of what turned out to be a 15-inning loss. Wait, that was that game? I completely forgot that was also Vargas’ debut. What a memory! I hate it.

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ The Phillies continue their stretch of winnable games against a White Sox team 14 games under .500. The Phillies have not been the worst. This is an unarguable fact. And now, after winning a series against the Giants, they’ll play a not-good AL Central team and hope that, as they hopefully rack up a few wins, those ahead of them in the standings get dropped a few pegs. But who knows, with this team. It’ll be quite the weekend as Jason Vargas makes his Phillies debut tonight, followed by an Aaron Nola start on Saturday night, and Drew Smyly pitching the Sunday...

Vargas to make his Phillies debut as ChiSox come to town

Jason Vargas will make his Phillies debut on Friday night as he takes the mound as the Chicago White Sox visit Philadelphia to open a three-game weekend set at Citizens Bank Park.The Phillies acquired the 36-year-old from the Mets on Monday in exchange for minor league backstop Austin Bossart. In 19 appearances (18 starts) this year with the Mets the left-hander is 6-5 with a 4.01 ERA to go along with a 1.27 WHIP.“He’s been a relatively effective Major League pitcher for the better part of a decade now,” Phillies general manager Matt Klentak said of Vargas earlier this week. “We’re...

Matt Klentak played the trade deadline just fine

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ The Phils GM didn’t make a splash, nor should he have. When the MLB trade deadline was all said and done yesterday, the Phillies did not stand pat. They did not go all-in. As they had been promising for weeks, general manager Matt Klentak avoided consummating a headline-grabbing move and instead tinkered around the edges. He traded a player to be named later and international slot money for outfielder Corey Dickerson, who will pair with Jay Bruce as either a bench bat or corner outfielder. He traded for New York Mets starting pitcher Jason Vargas for a AA...

Jason Vargas was often competent, but always frustrating

Jason Vargas was often competent, but always frustrating

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports The veteran pitcher was brought in to bring stability to the starting rotation. He more or less did that, even if it wasn’t always pretty. It’s been reported that Jason Vargas had told friends in recent weeks that he was hoping the Mets would trade him to a team in playoff contention, which means that he was likely happy upon hearing that he had indeed been dealt to the Phillies. He was most certainly not alone in feeling this way, as it cannot be said that most Mets fans particularly enjoyed watching him pitch. Thank to his struggles to go deep into...

A lot of fans don’t think the Phillies are a playoff team

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ Pick-ups of Drew Smyly and Jason Vargas have done little to change the mood. Phillies fans who participate in SB Nation’s weekly FanPulse polling (which you can take part in here) were asked a special little trade deadline question this week: Are the Phillies a playoff team right now? Granted, we’ve got a couple more hours of trade deadline business to settle—and yeah, the Phillies could make another classic trade involving a mediocre starter, low-level prospects, and cash considerations, but for now, nobody’s feeling great about their chances.
