    Turns out Ed Rendell doesn’t much like Philly’s chances to host the 2016 Democratic National Convention: PoliticsPA reports: “The money makes New York the favorite,” Rendell said in an interview with AM 970 on Sunday morning. He cited the large amounts of money within the city, and previous money troubles with the 2012 convention as the reasons why Brooklyn could be the 2016 host. According to the ex-Gov, the Democrats were left with $25 million in payments for the 2012 convention in Charlotte, North Carolina, after they failed to raise enough cash. Rendell says the Democrats…

  • Is Mayor Nutter Making Nice on Pot Decriminalization?

    Joel Mathis
    2 Sep 2014 | 12:15 pm
    It looks as though Mayor Nutter is charting a new course on pot decriminalization. Newsworks reports that the mayor — who still has several weeks to veto or approve City Council’s decriminalization bill — is now working on his own plan to deal with small-time possession. What’s more, he’s dropped the sneering tone that accompanied his previous statements on the topic — and seems surprised that anybody thought there was a conflict on the topic. Nutter will have to make a decision in a few weeks. The bill authored by Councilman Jim Kenney passed just before council went…

    The biggest number for Cole Hamels after six innings wasn't the zero in the hits allowed column but the 108 pitches thrown by the Philadelphia Phillies' starter. Hamels and three Phillies relievers combined on the season's fourth no-hitter, blanking the Atlanta Braves 7-0 on Monday and giving a last-place team a rare reason to rejoice.

Philadelphia ace Hamels had five walks and a high pitch count, forcing manager Ryne Sandberg to remove him for a pinch-hitter in the top of the seventh inning. Jake Diekman, Ken Giles and Jonathan Papelbon preserved the no-hitter, each throwing a solid inning out of the bullpen.
