Asdrubal Cabrera, Edubray Ramos now teammates with Phillies after some history

Asdrubal Cabrera, Edubray Ramos now teammates with Phillies after some history

Well, this could be a little awkward.

That is when Edubray Ramos and Asdrubal Cabrera bump into each other for the first time as teammates.

Why might you ask?

The two have some history. 

Ramos, currently on the disabled list, will soon see Cabrera again as the Phillies traded for the infielder Friday night.

They'll likely remember each other.

In 2017, the Phillies-Mets regular-season series kicked off with drama when Ramos buzzed a 96-mph fastball well over the head of Cabrera during the eighth inning of a tie game. Cabrera was none too pleased, staring back at Ramos. The benches were warned and then-manager Pete Mackanin was ejected.

Ramos probably had a good memory.

In a September game the season prior, Cabrera walloped a three-run, walk-off homer off Ramos at Citi Field. Cabrera celebrated by flipping his bat in the air with both hands and admiring his work before eventually starting his home run trot.

So was that Ramos pitch on purpose?

Here was a tidbit from Jim Salisbury's story in April 2017:

Through a team translator, Ramos said the pitch "got away" and was not intentional. He said the home run that Cabrera hit last year was "in the past." Asked if Cabrera's celebratory reaction at the time upset him, Ramos admitted, "Yeah, a little, but again that was last year."

Now it's 2018. Cabrera is playing well and has always killed the Phillies. Ramos has a 1.91 ERA and will be a huge boost when healthy again. Something tells me those two will get along just fine when they're helping the same team push for the playoffs.

And maybe even more.

Did the Flyers just troll the Eagles on social media?

The Eagles have been quite the disappointment this season, with the latest being their atrocious 37-31 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday in South Florida. And with disappointments come possible troll jobs? 

As the clock wound down and fans became increasingly exasperated with the team, social media anger started to build and it looks like one fellow Philadelphia team may have added just an oh-so-subtle jab in there.

As the 37-31 score went final, the Flyers sent out quite the interesting reminder of their impressive record this November. It seems like they don’t want fans to forget that they are NOT part of the teams that have been disappointing this city. 

You have to admit, the timing is a bit suspicious. 


Fans certainly seem to think that the Flyers are trolling the Eagles with their post, based on the replies.

We love a little friendly fire between the Philadelphia sports teams, if this is a true troll job. Or maybe it’s just a conveniently scheduled tweet by the Flyers' social media team. 

You be the judge.

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Eagles social media exposed Orlando Scandrick in the best way

Updated: 6:35 p.m.

Oh boy.

Things have gotten wild over in the Eagles' world today, beginning with former Eagles cornerback Orlando Scandrick torching almost everyone on his old team on FS1’s “Undisputed” this morning (see story).

Then, Malcolm Jenkins clapped back at Scandrick in NSFW fashion to essentially dismiss the claims by Scandrick, to which Scandrick then responded on Colin Cowherd’s show that he essentially “wasn’t attacking anyone personally”(see story).

And so, after a morning of ping-ponging back and forth, we have the ultimate response, from the team itself.

The Eagles social media account offically weighed in in the most brilliant way. Actions speak louder than words, Scandrick, and you can't run from history.

Well damn, they really just exposed Scandrick. I mean, how do you come back from being shredded by both Jenkins and a professional NFL team?

So long Scandrick, you won’t be missed.

Jenkins himself apparently liked the tweet, too ... he had a very interesting quote tweet.
