DOC IN THE AMAZONThe tall tale was just that. While in the Amazon over the winter, Roy Halladay and friends (including Chris Carpenter and B.J. Ryan) came across a local man whose boat had been overturned by a large snake – the mighty anaconda, to be specific.But the legend of Halladay wrestling the snake in the muddy waters of the rainforest was false. In fact, Halladay said he hates snakes. Here’s Roy’s version of the story (from David Hale of the Wilmington News Journal):CONTRERAS THROWS OFF MOUNDJose Contreras threw off a mound this morning with no issues. This is a big step for The Big Truck. He threw his repertoire of pitches, and looked good in the process, according to reports.

According to Ryan Lawrence of ...

The car you see above is what the Doc whipped to Phillies training camp over the weekend. Would you expect...

Starting pitchers are difficult to assess. They’re a deep pool of talent, but they can also have widely variable results. Injuries steal a few elite hurlers every season, much to their owners’ chagrins, and there are always a few breakouts who no one saw coming. My rankings took a number of things into consideration: strikeouts, walks, groundball rate, xFIP, innings pitched...
