Halladay Wants ‘Em, Gets ‘Em
Charlie Manuel jogged to the mound in the bottom of the ninth inning last night at Nationals Park to get a good look at Roy Halladay.
He wanted to see Halladay’s face. He wanted to get a feel for him.
“Well, Roy,” Manuel said. “Here I am.”
“I got ‘em,” Halladay replied. “I got ‘em.”
X-rays on Ryan Howard‘s right wrist were negative. John Lannan hit him with a pitch in the fifth inning. Howard said afterward the wrist, which was bandaged, felt stiff and sore. He wasn’t sure what it will feel like for tonight’s series finale, so it’s unknown if he will play. But he seemed to be in good spirits as he left the ballpark.
