So the Phillies fell short on a comeback attempt last night against the Braves despite Cole Hamels getting a career high 12 Ks.  He was on fire early, striking out 12 of the first 15 batters.  But things unraveled much like they usually do for the Phils and Hamels gave up a big inning that ended up costing him the game.  Utley and Howard continue to produce.  Chase's hitting streak has reached 24 games which is the longest in the Majors this season.  Howard bashed his 32nd HR.

Cole's start was impressive with flashes of brilliance.  Hamels is only 22 years old, hopefully when he is mature, at like 23, he will be able to put together entire games without falling apart.

So the Phillies lost to the Braves which is pretty much standard issue around Philadelphia.  But if you head on over to the Phillies website in hopes of finding news of a blockbuster trade you will be disappointed, but you can see they feature a piece on MEATLOAF instead.  Meatloaf was not only at the Phillies game on Friday, but the Phillies actually link to " Official Fanclub." 

The four game Braves series came to an end with one rain out on Saturday.  The Phillies didn't get swept and only lost two games and remember two out of three ain't bad!

The Phillie Phanatic got an awful makeover

The Phillie Phanatic got an awful makeover

The 2017 Philadelphia Phillies look quite a bit different than the team that trotted out on the field last season.

One constant, however, is the Phillie Phanatic who brings his A-game every single year for most of our lives.

His consistency is remarkable.

Until now!

In a new promo video, the Phanatic attempts to get a makeover at the hands of shortstop and stylish dude Freddy Galvis.

The only problem is: if you're going to good the Phanatic dreadlocks -- and really, this sounds like a great idea to me -- you have to give him GREEN dreadlocks.

You'll notice they give him a 'fro at the end which is greeted with approval and it matches.

Carson Wentz talks Derek Barnett, that Cowboys hat and crazy Eagles fans

Carson Wentz talks Derek Barnett, that Cowboys hat and crazy Eagles fans

Carson Wentz has had a whilrwind few days in Philadelphia as the city hosts the 2017 NFL draft.

He took some time between posing for selfies with Eagles fans and messing with Dallas Cowboys fans and hitting trick shots on live TV to talk about his busy week with CSNPhilly's Danny Pommells.

Obviously that pesky Cowboys' fan was a topic of interest.

"He was coming up and was getting booed. I was like, 'I can't take this picture.' So I nicely took his hat off and set it down and took the picture. He was cool with it. It was all in fun," Wentz said.

Carson also spoke about the record-setting Philly crowd and impressive atmosphere on Day 1 of the draft

"It was crazy. I didn't know what to expect being at the Draft Experience. The fans just kind of all circulated, it was nuts. That's Eagles fans. So much passion."

As for the Birds' first round pick Derek Barnett? Wentz had to look him up just like many Eagles fans.

"I watched some film of him. He's a dynamic player. He can really turn that corner and bend around that corner. I'm happy he's on our team I'll tell you that."

"I've heard he's a hard-working kid so that will serve him well," Wentz said.

The NFL Draft Experience continues on Friday and Saturday and is free for all fans.
