Found June 06, 2012 on Phillies Nation:
Roy Halladay and Phillies athletic trainer Scott Sheridan spoke to the media Wednesday afternoon to update Halladay’s condition.Halladay, on the shelf since May 29 with a lat strain, had a second opinion on his shoulder that showed minimal changes to his rotator cuff since 2009.So nothing changes. Halladay will be given three weeks off from throwing and then will be reevaluated. The initial diagnosis of 6-to-8 weeks appears safe.Major relief.

Freddy Galvis the latest Phillies casualty to hit the DL

The injuries just keep piling up for the Philadelphia Phillies this season. Is there no end in sight? Freddy Galvis strained his back last night in the middle of a decent at-bat and pulled himself out of the game, unable to continue any further during the asme at-bat. It was a painfully frustrating, and all too familiar feeling for Phillies fans watching as the home team dropped...

Lee Still Winless in 9 Starts

If April showers bring May flowers, then what does June bring? The only thing I know for sure is that for Cliff Lee, June has not yet brought him a win. That is 9 starts, a 2.92 ERA and a 0-3 record. Yikes. And it is not that Lee has not deserved a win; the Phillies offense has simply not scored for him. In Lee’s 9 starts, the Phillies have scored a total of 16 runs while he was...

Jonathan Papelbon says umpire ‘sucked,’ should be sent down to Triple-A (Video)

Jonathan Papelbon may have taken the loss as the Phillies were defeated 4-3 by the Dodgers on Monday night, but he is not taking the blame. That blame, he says, belongs to home plate umpire D.J. Reyburn. In a 3-3 tie in the ninth, Papelbon allowed a lead-off triple on a 2-2 pitch to Dodgers shortstop Dee Gordon. Papelbon thought he had strike three on the previous pitch, and naturally...

Why Carlos Ruiz will not make the All-Star team

Is it too late to make an all star push for Carlos Ruiz? Getty Images. Carlos Ruiz leads all catchers in baseball with a .368 batting average, a .600 slugging percentage, 1.029 OPS. He also is tied for the National League lead with 32 RBI and has played some very solid defense this season. As Todd Zolecki points out, Ruiz is just short of enough plate appearances to...

Umpires Become the Story Once Again in Phillies Loss

It is a real shame when the focus of any baseball game becomes the umpires instead of the actual plays. But this seems to be an ever increasing trend as MLB continues to sweep bad umpiring under the rug. After a 4-3 loss to the Dodgers last night, Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon got all bent out of shape about the performance of home plate umpire D.J. Reyburn. Papelbon told reporters...

ST. LOUIS There's something about inspiration, the way it provides hope and direction and gives purpose to wild fantasies. There's something about a chase toward a goal that makes the dreamer believe anything is possible with focus and a little effort.
