6/27/10: A New Home Run King - No, Barry Bonds' record of 762 home runs has not fallen. Instead, Jaime Moyer gave up the 506th homer of his career on Sunday, breaking the record previously held by ex-Phillie Robin Roberts for over 50 years.

Moyer's home run - surrendered to the resurgent Vernon Wells - was his one mistake in an 11-2 victory that marked Moyer's ninth win of the season. Moyer appears to be a lock to break Phil Niekro's record 11 victories in a season by a 47-year-old pitcher set back in 1986.

Franchise History

The Beginning - The original National League featured a Philadelphia Phillies franchise which folded after one year. The current franchise debuted in 1883 as the Philadelphia Quakers. The team became the Phillies in 1890.

The Dark Times for Liberty Between 1934 and 1948, neither of the Philadelphia franchises finished higher than 4th place in their respective leagues, and neither had a winning season between '34 and '46.

Best Trade in Team History - In 1972, the Phillies sent Rick Wise to the Cardinals in exchange for Steve Carlton. Carlton would go on to win the Cy Young and Triple Crown in his first season as a Phillie, and he would win three more Cy Youngs with the Phils.

Worst Trade in Team History - In 1982, the Phillies acquired Ivan DeJesus from the Cubs in exchange for veteran Larry Bowa and a prospect named Ryne Sandberg.
