Roy Halladay feels good and wants to stay in Philadelphia. The Phillies big right hander said today on how he felt compared to last year, “If I feel the way I feel right now, I’m very confident.” Halladay also made it clear that his lower back, not his shoulder was the issue in 2012. When asked about testing free agency after this season Doc said, “I really don’t see myself playing anywhere else.” Great news on both counts for Phillies fans. If Roy Halladay is back at 100%, the naysayers that think the Phils are a third place team had better be ready to eat some crow!

Rich Dubee On Roy Halladay: There’s Going To Be An Animal On The Mound Competing

Roy Halladay suffered one of his worst seasons of his career in 2012. His positive 11-8 record was dampered by a 4.49 ERA and a month and a half-long stint on the DL. Halladay missed time last season from May 29th -July 17th with a strained latissimus dorsi muscle. During...

Phillies, Cruz Part Ways

Juan Cruz, 34, was the odds on favorite among the non-roster invitee relievers to make the club out of Spring Training. Today, Todd Zolecki reported that Cruz and the Phillies have decided to part ways. Zolecki indicates that the signing of Chad Durbin made Cruz believe his window to make the club was increasingly narrow. Cruz was the only pitcher to not report to camp on time yesterday...

Player Profile #82: Jimmy Rollins | SS | PHI

Jimmy Rollins made his major league debut back in 2000. It’s now 2013 and Rollins is entering his 14th major league season as a 34-year-old who’s played every one of his 1,792 games with the same team.

Prospect Nation 2013: #12 2B Cesar Hernandez

Venezuelan born infielder Cesar Hernandez was signed as an amateur free agent by the Phillies at the age of 16. Since then, the slick defender that primarily plays second base, has displayed solid progress and improvements in many areas of his game. Hernandez, a switch-hitter, made his professional debut with the Venezuelan Summer League in 2007 at the age of 17. In two seasons...

Chooch’s Apology Doesn’t Fill In All Blanks

It is particularly difficult to watch a presidential debate or State of the Union and hear the party line as a response for each question. It becomes a predictable exercise where each answer is as rehearsed and choreographed as a pop music performance at the Grammys. When reporters engaged Carlos Ruiz in questions about his 25-game suspension for Adderall use, Ruiz stuck to the talking...

Carlos Ruiz is More Lovable Than Ever

Pap Smear: Papelbon says the Boston Redshots were injecting players before games

Another day, another stink bomb in Major League Baseball's long-lost war on drugs.Yesterday, Jonathan Papelbon - he of the meltdown that devoured Boston - disclosed that Redshots operatives regularly injected him with Toradol, yet another drug nobody has ever heard of until now. They shot him up before games, and he felt like a toreador. It was a legal drug. But it could be a...

**** Happens When You Party With John Bolaris

So here’s the deal… It was Opening Day 2011, and the Phillies were coming off a heart-breaking Game 5 in the NLDS where they bounced from the playoffs by the Cardinals. Kevin and I were also bounced that night. We were thrown out of CBP by a douche bag security guard. Never has such little power gone to a man’s head so badly as it did with that security guard. But that had...

30 Prospects in 30 Days: Travis d’Arnaud – C – New York Mets

This is my first installment in the 30 for 30 series so a little primer may be in order. I like to analyze a prospect through a few different lenses before reaching a conclusion. I call it the 5 Ps of prospects. Sometime, I can throw a sixth lens into the ring – my eyes – if I have seen the prospect in person. Source: Mets Merized Online Profile Let’s get the basics out of...
