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.

“Doc” is amazing! I think we should start a pool on how many complete games he’ll pitch, this season.
What’s with Lannan always hitting our guys?! He’s the one who broke Chase’s hand!
And I swore Matt Stairs retired.

Matt Stairs did try to retire, but then the Nats made him an offer so he’s back. One of my favorites in the game. In the off season he coaches his son’s hockey team and he played 40 games of hockey himself over the winter.

I didn’t think it was possible, but Roy Halladay kicked it up a notch in his complete game last night. He had a razor’s edge in the ninth inning. That is was seperates him from any other pitcher in baseball today.
On another note, the phillies batters should practice hitting low line drives up the middle to prepare for the next time they face John Lannan.

I was a bit nervous there in the 9th, I must admit. Wonder if Lidge was available whether things might have gone differently.

Halladay looked tired to me at the end. I was more concerned with how he got into a pickle rather than the fact he was able to get himself out of it.

I know that the Nationals a re better than last year, but shouldn’t the Phillies blowing them out of the water? Lost the 1st game and we just pulled it out (2 men on with 1 out), with the best pitcher in baseball! I hope the whether (not being hot enought to make that ball travel) that is to blame.

This reminds me of that scene in The Untouchables where Andy Garcia is pinned on the ground at the bottom of a stairwell with his gun pointed up the stairs at a man who has his own gun at the head of their star witness. Kevin Costner asks Garcia “You got him?” “I got him.” “Take him.”

“Untouchables”–that might become an apt description for this Phillies team in 2011.

I can understand wanting the best pitcher in the game to get the last out, but Doc clearly didn’t have his best stuff in the ninth. He was able to gut it out though, just like he did when he was hurt in the NLCS against the Giants. He’s not only the best, he’s the toughest as well.

Jays fan here…So, if you could only have one — Roy Halladay or Cliff Lee — which one would you keep?

That’s a rhetorical question, right? ;) Although from a baseball perspective the answer is obvious, it is kinda like making someone choose between their children.
