Phils Dominate Marlins, Cruise to 14-2 Win in Florida

Phils Dominate Marlins, Cruise to 14-2 Win in Florida

Cole Hamels and the Phillies cruised to a 14-2 victory over the Marlins on Tuesday night. That was good for the most runs they've put up in any game this season. Cole Hamels catching a liner in his banged up glove hand and Dom Brown making a dangerous dive were the only real stressful moments, and those lasted a few seconds.

Otherwise, the Phillies bats bombed Chris Volstad and his subsequent replacements. Not a whole lot of analysis needed in this one. Just look at the numbers:

Jimmy Rollins: 4 hits, 3 runs scored

Michael Martinez: 3 RBIs, 2 runs scored

Chase Utley: Only one lousy hit, what a bum

Ryan Howard: 4 hits, 4 RBIs, 3 runs scored

Raul Ibanez: 4 hits, 4 RBIs, 2 runs scored

Carlos Ruiz: 1 hit, 1 run

Dom Brown: 2 hits, a RBI, and a run scored

Wilson Valdez: 1 hit, 2 RBIs

Cole Hamels failed to notch a hit at the plate, but he limited the Marlins to only 2 runs scored on 8 hits and pitched pretty comfortably through 8 strong innings.

What was that you were saying a couple of weeks ago about the Phillies offense being so putrid?

Kyle Kendrick goes for the sweep tomorrow.

Eagles sign former third-round guard Dallas Thomas

Eagles sign former third-round guard Dallas Thomas

The Eagles have signed former Dolphins offensive guard Dallas Thomas to a reserve/futures contract. 

Thomas, 27, was drafted by the Dolphins in the third round (No. 77) out of Tennessee in 2013 and was with them until this past season.  

In his four-year career, Thomas has played in 37 games with 26 starts. He started nine games in 2014 and started all 16 games at left guard in 2015. 

Thomas (6-5, 315 pound) and 2014 third-rounder Billy Turner were both released in October after a poor showing agains the Titans. While Thomas was the team's starter at left guard in 2015, rookie Laremy Tunsil took over that position with the Dolphins in 2016. 

In 2015, when Thomas started all 16 games at left guard, he was ranked as the worst guard in football by ProFootballFocus. He gave up 10 sacks, 10 QB hits and 36 QB hurries. 

Mike Trout wins Eagles-Cowboys bet forcing friend to look ridiculous

Mike Trout wins Eagles-Cowboys bet forcing friend to look ridiculous

Mike Trout sure does win a lot when the Eagless beat the Cowboys.

Not only did the Los Angeles Angels outfielder get a touchdown ball from Carson Wentz during the Eagles win over the Cowboys to cap off the season, but he also won a bet on the game with a friend.

Turns out, Trout had some sort of bet with DJ Cottrell, whose Twitter profile says he is from Trout's hometown of Millville, NJ. Cottrell is likely a Cowboys fan and came up on the losing end.

"The fact I have to wear an entire Eagles uniform to the gym for a week is going to be the death of me," he Tweeted on Tuesday.

Then he posted a photo of himself in the ridiculous football uniform while posing alongside Trout.

It's good to be Mike Trout. Not so much a Dallas Cowboys fan these days.
