Doc, Doctor

Roy Halladay is scheduled to see a doctor at some point somewhere today.

As soon as we hear anything we will let you know.

Like I said in my previous post, I would be surprised if Halladay is not placed on the DL. He has been struggling for a month, and it seems quite possible he has not felt right since spring training. He has soreness in his right shoulder, and shoulders are nothing to mess with. I suppose the best-case scenario is that it’s some inflammation that requires a little rest.

Worst-case scenario … well, we’re talking torn rotator cuff.

For what it’s worth, here’s what Cole Hamels said yesterday about Halladay’s injury: “He’s a battler. Shoot, he’s had more work than anybody in this game. If you can go out every season and pitch 250 innings, he’s the best. It’s just one of those things where I think the team is trying to be cautious. He works harder than anybody I’ve ever seen, so he’s going to get back out there as fast as he can to help the team. I don’t think it’s too serious, because I play catch with him every day.”


Erik Kratz is headed to New York in case Carlos Ruiz (tightness in his right hamstring) needs to be placed on the DL, as Allentown’s Jeff Schuler first reported.


Jim Salisbury and I co-authored the book The Rotation, which is now available. Check it out here! Here are our upcoming book signings:

  • SATURDAY: Citizens Bank Park, 3–4 p.m.
  • June 16: Barnes & Noble, Wilmington, Del, 2 p.m.

Seriously…the curse of Ed Wade. It is real!

The curse of Ed Wade? Is that the curse that made them win five division titles, two League crowns and a WS since he left? WTF are you talking about?

I don’t know about curse, but if the Phils lose Chooch and Halladay for 15 days, that could undo everything they did to get from 4 games under .500 to 2 games over. Hopefully, the pitching will be able to hold up until Vance gets back. Blanton needs to pitch tonight like his career depends on it!

Wait a minute. The Phillies have been carrying Halladay this season not the other way around. His ERA is higher than the team ERA. Now is the time for all of the Halladayphiles to chime in.

chime! chime! chime! chime! lol
