The 2013 season is winding down, and the Phillies look like they’re already playing golf.

Behind a downright awful effort from Tyler Cloyd, and an absentee offense, the Braves easily defeated the Phillies tonight 7-1 in a game where they never really seemed interested in being there.


- It was Tyler Cloyd, so there’s no way tonight’s result is surprising. Things got ugly early for the middling right-hander, as Jason Heyward took Cloyd deep to lead off the ballgame. It was a fitting start, as Heyward would lead the Braves all night, going 5-for-5 with four extra base hits. Atlanta would tack on four more runs in the first, Cloyd basically pitching BP to the Braves lineup. It would take him forty pitches to retire the nine hitters he faced in the inning, and nothing was easy.

- With the Phillies bullpen scheduled for a lot of work this weekend, Cloyd the Void would head back out for the second. Continuing his horrid start, he allowed two more runs before recording an out. With the score 7-1 in favor of the Braves, Sandberg would mercifully lift the once heralded Iron Pig. This could very well be the last time we see him in a Phillies uniform–or in the big leagues, period–and what a way for the Cloydster to go.

Despite the Phillies loss yesterday, the Phillies Nation party in DC was a monumental success. A huge thanks to our friends Quimby, Marylin and the crew of Phils Fever for orchestrating the event – 13 buses and over 800 people made the trip. Here are a few photos from the pregame tailgate. (It’s always fun to get a new Phillies tattoo photo!)

Here are the rest of the photos from mine and Pat’s excellent adventure in Clearwater. Check out some of the video footage in the latest episode of Phillies Nation TV.

Among the latest photos are ones from: the awesome St. Patrick’s Day tailgate party hosted by Phils Fever; a minor league game featuring Jim Thome and Phillies catching prospect, Bob Stumpo (also my cousin); a Phillies-Pirates game in Bradenton, FL; and a Phillies-Braves game from Bright House Field.

Phillies Spring Training Trip

Details for four of our 2012 road trips have been announced – Clearwater, Pittsburgh, Washington, DC and Baltimore!  Like last year, we will be teaming up with our friends at Phils Fever (aka Green Legion) for several awesome adventures.  Check out the details:

Spring Training   
Friday, March 16 to Monday, March 19

This is easily the most fun you’ll have on a road trip.  In a single weekend you have – Phillies Spring Training, St. Patrick’s Day, Opening Rounds of March Madness, and Spring Break!  All this within the famously sunny surroundings of Clearwater, Florida.  If you are a serious Phillies fan, you need to at least consider coming on the trip.

Read more about the variety of packages starting at just $340 (not including transportation to Clearwater)

Friday, April 6 to Sunday, April 8

Time to kick-start the Phillies season and this year, we start in Pittsburgh! Opening Day is unfortunately on a Thursday, so rather than dealing with all the vacation days and missed classes, we decided to offer a package for two nights, either Friday & Saturday or Saturday & Sunday, and you can go to either one or two games, or even a Flyers-Penguins game before the Saturday night Phillies game!

Read more about Opening Weekend in Pittsburgh.

Washington, DC
Saturday, May 5

As you may have heard, the Washington Nationals are trying to keep Phillies fans from taking over Nationals Park yet again. Since baseball returned to DC in 2005, Phillies Nation has been delivering Phillies fans to our nation’s capital – and we’ll do that again this May. Let’s show our old friends Jayson Werth and Brad Lidge what they’re missing!

Read more about our “Take Back Nationals Park” trip in Washington, DC.

Friday, June 8 to Sunday, June 10

The opportunity to see one of baseball’s finest ballparks, the original throwback at Camden Yards, does not come around often.  This year we have plenty of chances to see the Phillies play the neighboring Orioles in an interleague matchup.  You can come down just for 1 game or stay the entire weekend.  Plus there are bus pick-ups at three different locations around Philly.

2011 Phillies Road Trips

2011 Phillies Nation Road Trips
Six years ago, Phillies Nation ran its first road trip to Washington, DC in what was then the first year of baseball in our nation’s capital.  That day, Rob Cowie captained a short bus full of fans (and a few cases of beer) down I-95 to old RFK Stadium.  Since then thousands of fans have traveled with us to cities around the country to root on the Phillies and have a good time.

This year, we have our most ambitious slate of trips yet.  Along with our partner Phils Fever, we aim to fill opposing stadiums and show the country what being a Phillies fan is really about.

The regular season starts with a massive invasion of DC on April 14 to see our old friend Jayson Werth face our returning hero Cliff Lee.  After that, there are another 2 trips to DC, 2 to New York plus overnight stays in San Diego, Miami, San Francisco and Seattle.

Most Phillies home games will be sold out before the season even begins so don’t miss out on any of the action.  Get your tickets to the April 14th trip to DC now and start making plans for the rest of the season.
April 14 – Washington, DC – DC Invasion
April 21-25 – San Diego
May 7-11 – Miami
May 29 – New York Mets
May 30 – Washington, DC – Memorial Day
June 16-20 – Seattle
June 23 – Tour of CBP and McFadden’s Party
July 16 – New York Mets – details coming soon
August 4-8 – San Francisco
August 20 – Washington, DC
September 24 – New York Mets


Details Announced for Phillies-Cubs Chicago Trip

Posted by Brian Michael, Mon, April 19, 2010 06:47 AM Comments: 30

Welcome to Chicago Phillies Nation

On the heels of the announcement of our trip to Fenway Park, we now bring you the plan to visit the beautiful and historic Wrigley Field in Chicago.  This is your chance to spend the weekend of July 16-19 with Phillies Nation and Phils Fever (the Phillies wing of Green Legion).

It’s hard to overstate the awesomeness of a weekend in Chicago.  The city has all the excitement of New York but without the pretentiousness.  We’ll be visiting the favorite hangouts of Chicago-based Phillies fans and attending Sunday’s Phillies-Cubs game.  There are few things that embody baseball more than an afternoon game at Wrigley Field.

We have several packages available but all include a three night’s stay in Downtown Chicago, a ticket to Sunday’s game, plus tons more fun and amenities.  Plus if you reserve a package with us now, you’ll have the chance to purchase tickets for Friday’s and Saturday’s game while supplies last.  Also for this trip you must provide your own transportation to and from Chicago – a quick search on Orbitz had flights from Philly to Chicago going for $250.

For Sunday’s game we offer two seating options – left field bleachers or lower level stadium.  The bleachers offer more of a party atmosphere, while the stadium seats are closer to the action.  I’ll be in the bleachers, I hope to see you there.

Bleacher Seating

4 people to a room with bleacher seating – $495 per person
3 people to a room with bleacher seating – $545 per person
2 people to a room with bleacher seating – $645 per person

Stadium Seating

4 people to a room with stadium seating – $420 per person
3 people to a room with stadium seating – $470 per person
2 people to a room with stadium seating – $570 per person

Howard Hospitalized

Posted by Amanda Orr, Sun, June 21, 2009 12:28 PM Comments: 7

Ryan Howard is hospitalized for the second time in two days.  Howard’s fever spiked and he is not expected to join the team for Sunday’s game.

Howard’s streak for most consecutive games played (which currently leads the majors) will likely halt at 373 games today.
