I still visit this website every day, just in case… (RIP, The Fightins)

Not unlike Ben Francisco, this site gets better every day. If you are not visiting Fangraphs several times each day, you are doing the internet wrong. Today's gem: improved box score action!

The Wall Street Journal photoshopped some pictures of Phillies fans, to support the argument that Phillies fans don't hate the Mets any more. Seems like sufficient proof to me! (via Deadspin)

I'm pretty sure the 2011 Phillies rotation doesn't need a snappy nickname. But if it does, "The Dubee Brothers" is probably not the best choice. (ESPN)

As the Phillies have the night off, you have a great opportunity to enjoy some minor league action.

Lehigh Valley IronPigs (AAA), 7:05pm, Reading Phillies (AA), 6:35pm, Clearwater Threshers (A), 7:05pm, Lakewood BlueClaws (A), 6:35pm

Last, but not least, please join Philliedelphia in wishing Clearwater outfielder/future Frosted Flakes endorser Jiwan James, a Happy 22nd Birthday!
