Philadelphia Phillies (4-5) at Miami Marlins (1-8) John Lannan (0-0, 3.86) vs. Ricky Nolasco (0-1, 3.97) Time: 7:05 PM, Marlins Park TV: TCN, Home of Phillies Nation TV Weather: High 70′s, cloudy Media: Twitter and Facebook The Phillies are in Florida tonight, as they begin a three game set with the Marlins. They are coming off a series win against the Mets–their first win of the year. I think this is an important series for the Phils. I think they have a chance at a sweep, and they need to take advantage of that. It’s a perfect situation for Roy Halladay and Cole Hamels to get back in the groove (or, in Halladay’s case specifically, to possibly find himself again). Tonight, though, John Lannan gets the ball, and he’s been pretty good so far this year for being the fifth starter. Ricky Nolasco will be on the bump for the Fish, and it is tough to predict what kind of game he’ll have against the Phils. I anticipate a low scoring game, at least for the Marlins, because their lineup l...

Halladay Wins 200th, Phils Hold off Fish

Roy Halladay won his 200th career game, as the Phils held on for deal life, 2-1, over the Marlins. Doc Looking Better -Anything would be better than the first two starts, but Halladay was in full control for most of the day. Through eight innings, Roy gave up just one run and one walk while striking out two. He needed only 87 pitches to go that deep, as the young, inexeprienced,...

Is Philadelphia Phillies RHP Roy Halladay Over the Hill?

Is Roy Halladay over the hill? Probably. But that depends on what you think a hill is. He may be finished as a dominant major league starting pitcher, but really, that happens to every dominant major league starting pitcher. Halladay is a three-time 20-game winner, a two-time Cy Young winner, an eight-time all-star and he’s led the league in complete games seven different years...

Philadelphia Phillies: 2013 ERA for the MLB 5 at game 11

TAL’S HANDY STATS WELCOME, NEWCOMERS: I will publish the 2013 ERA for both the NL East and the MLB 5 periodically. The number of games played by the Phillies is in the...

Hold or Fold: Roy Halladay

Once we get past the first week of the season we get to the point where fantasy baseball players become nervous about certain players on their roster. There is an internal voice in every player’s head when the switch gets turned from “it’s early” to “I’m worried.” That switch is different for every fantasy player and each individual ML player has earned a certain amount...

Marlins Lose Sixth Straight

The Miami Marlins fell to 1-9 on Friday after a 3-1 loss to the Philadelphia Phillies in ten innings.   Once again, a starter put in a good effort only to come away without a win.  It was Ricky Nolasco’s turn this time around and he gave Miami a chance to win.   The offense however was quiet only putting together four hits in the ten frames. Nolasco now has a 3.12 E.R.A on the...
