Pete Rose is being honored by the Phillies on August 11th and 12th. For now. Rose, slated to be inducted in the team's Wall of Fame this month, has been accused of committing statutory rape of a teenage girl while he was a member of the Cincinnati Reds back in the 1970s. The long and short: Rose is suing a guy for saying he was with underage girls while in his playing days, and during discovery, the guy getting sued found one of the women who said she was 14 or 15 at the time, not 16 like Rose claims. So...what are the Phillies going to do?

In much lighter Phillies news... Tommy Joseph wasn't traded at the MLB deadline, so it looks like Triple-A stud Rhys Hoskins may have to wait for his chance at first base. Or will he? This is the same question we have at shortstop — Freddy Galvis or J.P. Crawford — and second base — Cesar Hernandez or Scott Kingery — as well. And in the outfield, there are several young draft picks who could be in the mix in the coming years at the major league level. So here's the thing: The Phillies have decent talent they can't just give up on, but the team stinks. So when is the time to trust the prospects? We took a look.
The most-ticketed block in Philly is the 500-block of South Second Street, according to the most recent PPA data. You know the block. It starts with Headhouse, ends with Square and has a drunken Wawa run in between. But, like the people in our video, you probably didn't know just how likely you are to get ticketed there.
