Judge to Pottstown teen’s killer: ‘You are without emotion’

A 19-year-old Norristown man showed no emotion, just rocked in a leather chair at the defense table, as a judge sentenced him to life imprisonment for being the triggerman during the gunshot slaying of a 16-year-old Pottstown teen. “You are without emotion as I see it.

Phillies Notebook: Batting eighth seems to suit Franco just fine

Gabe Kapler isn’t sure why Maikel Franco is so comfortable in the eighth spot in the lineup. Whatever it is, perhaps it’s best left unexamined.
