Weekend Rips: Phillies welcome back Bryce Harper, Eagles head to South Beach
“Cheers to the freakin’ weekend!” is what I would say if I weren’t sweating out my sneaky Thursday beers at my desk as I type this. Even so, thank the Good Lord Above for this beautiful Friday.
Philly fans have a lot to look forward to this weekend, and they also have a lot to be happy about from the previous week. From new training camp standouts to returning superstars, it’s been a whirlwind.
Fortunately for you, Weekend Rips is here to show you everything you missed AND every event you won’t want to miss this weekend. So, without further ado, take that student loan money you got forgiven and spend it on a Nicolas Cage in Leaving Las Vegas amount of booze for you and your crew. It’s time to let it rip.
Phillies sweep Reds, Bryce Harper returns
Okay, now that I got that out of my system (for now), here are the highlights from this week in Phillies baseball.
- Phillies swept the Reds out of CBP
- Broadcasters out of left Phield was a hell
- Bryson Stott and Nick Maton combined to walk-off the very same game – HUGE for The Liberty Line’s agenda
- Bryce Harper put up video game numbers in AAA
- Zach Wheeler hit the 15-day IL 🙁
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Make sure to check out the rest of our top-notch Phillies content here.
With a jam-packed week in the rearview, the Phillies turn their attention to the visiting Pittsburgh Pirates. While not the best team in baseball, they feature some of the brightest young talent in th- wait a minute… I feel it coming on again.
BRYCE HARPER IS BACK BABY FUCK YES FUCK YES
My emotional outbursts aside, I am so fucking excited. It’s been two months of outstanding baseball, which is nearly a miracle, but it just doesn’t hit the same without Harper on the field.
We’re sweeping the Pirates. Bryce Harper will hit a home run. And you will learn all you need to know and more in Luke Arcaini’s series preview, available here.
PLUS, some inside info from my man over at Fox Sports, The Gambler Sean Brace. Phils run line is free money.

Eagles take on the Dolphins, the roster keeps getting smaller
The regular season is fast approaching. The Eagles have had a lot go on this week, here’s what you might’ve missed.
- Sirianni lost his first game in joint practice, moves to 6-1. What does this mean for his legacy?
- Howie traded Ugo Adimi after nine days with the team
- Jalen Reagor has two new suitors
- Bravery: DeVonta Smith admits he’s hopelessly addicted to Wawa
Plus, our own Victor Williams compiled a list of his biggest standouts from the preseason win over Cleveland.
The Birds will face off against the Dolphins on Saturday at 7pm. I don’t expect to see much excitement unless Carson Strong completes a pass.
