The News Room: 11/01/08

Saturday, November 1, 2008 ·

Wow, after this week, it sort of makes us forget about the rest of the Philadelphia sports community. The boys in red definitely stole the show. However, there is still news to talk about and some of it even includes the beginning of the Fightin' Phils World Champion offseason.

Phillies decline options for So Taguchi and Tom Gordon.
The Phillies have made both Taguchi and Gordon eligible for free agency. To buy them out, it cost the Phillies $150,000 for Taguchi and $1,000,000 for Gordon. Sure, the news came at a bad time, but they both knew they had bad seasons and Gordon was hurt for most of it. Both players celebrated with the rest of their former teammates yesterday during the victory parade.

Villanova opens as #23 in the Preseason AP poll.
The Villanova Wildcats men's basketball team has been ranked #23 in this year's preseason poll. Returning all of their players and one year removed from a sweet 16 berth, Villanova will challenge for the Big East conference title.


A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
