@CullenJenkins

Jenkins Just wanted to apologize to all you
eagle fans out there. We as players have to step it up. I'm imbarrased
for today.

Not sure where you stand on professional athletes taking to the internet to apologize for brutal losses, but Eagle Cullen Jenkins posted the above on Twitter following Sunday's 38-20 loss to the Patriots.

I am inclined to take the big fella at his word here - even if that word happens to be "imbarrased." Perhaps he's so ashamed of their performance that the word "embarrassed" wasn't quite capturing the full scope of his emotion. Truth be told, Jenkins was one of the few Eagles who didn't embarrass himself on Sunday.

Look, we all make spelling mistakes - especially on Twitter. If nothing
else, and spelling aside, it's nice to know that an actual member of the
team recognizes just how poor of a performance they put out there.

It's not often that a real, honest, unvarnished statement makes its way out of the Eagles organization. It's actually kind of refreshing. I think perhaps I'll have a talk with Enrico about whether you're eligible for the Misconduct Tavern Comment of the Week.

Oh, and Jenkins later recognized the error of his spelling ways and posted this follow up tweet.

@CullenJenkins
Cullen Jenkins Stall me out. Too many huts to the head lol
Nov 28 via Twitter for iPadFavoriteRetweetReply

Amen to that, Cullen. Here's hoping the Eagles PR flacks don't censor him for his off-message tweets. Lord knows we need all the hard hutting truth we can get. Cullen, I'll gladly stall you out, man.

Former Phillies pitcher, Hall of Famer Jim Bunning dies at 85

Former Phillies pitcher, Hall of Famer Jim Bunning dies at 85

LOUISVILLE, Ky.-- Hall of Fame pitcher Jim Bunning, who pitched six seasons with the Phillies and went on to serve in Congress, has died. He was 85.

Bunning's death was confirmed by Jon Deuser, who served as chief of staff when Bunning was in the Senate. Deuser said he was notified about the death by Bunning's family.

Bunning won 224 games in a 17-year major-league career and pitched the first perfect game in modern National League history. It came with the Phillies on June 21, 1964.

He became the first pitcher after 1900 to throw no-hitters in both the American and National Leagues.

He belonged to a rare group of major league pitchers to throw a perfect game in the modern era.

A Kentucky Republican, he was the only member of the Baseball Hall of Fame to serve in Congress. He served in both the House and Senate.

Today's Lineup: Cesar Hernandez (groin) returns

Today's Lineup: Cesar Hernandez (groin) returns

Cesar Hernandez returns to the Phillies' punchless lineup on Saturday afternoon against the Reds (4 p.m./TCN).

Hernandez, who missed Friday night's 5-2 loss with a groin injury, is back at second base and leading off. Hernandez has led off in all 44 games he's started this season. The fifth-year pro has struggled after getting off to a torrid start. He's hitting just .185 (10 for 54) over his last 14 games.

After bouncing around the lineup, centerfielder Odubel Herrera returns to his customary spot in the two-hole. Herrera's season is a microcosm of the Phils' woeful offense. An All-Star in 2016, Herrera is hitting just .227 this season. Manager Pete Mackanin hopes the Venezuelan will hit his way out of it soon (see story).

Here is the rest of today's lineup:
1. Cesar Hernandez, 2B
2. Odubel Herrera, CF
3. Aaron Altherr, LF
4. Tommy Joseph, 1B
5. Michael Saunders, RF
6. Maikel Franco, 3B
7. Cameron Rupp, C
8. Freddy Galvis, SS
9. Jerad Eickhoff, P
